Summary: Parents need to know that despite the inclusion of various world mythological figures, Tournament of Legends is a modern-style fighting game in which those classical characters use contemporary speech. It is violent, though not excessively bloody. It features scantily clad women warriors.
Excerpt: I'll be the first to admit that fighting games aren't my usual cup of tea. I'm generally not gifted when it comes to the twitch reflexes and intricate input commands that are so crucial in the one-on-one fighting genre.
Summary: The Wii is well known for a few of its high-profile fighting games, but otherwise the console isn’t exactly a haven for the genre. Everybody knows about Smash Bros, which is an unorthodox fighting game at best, and just this year we got the fantastic Tatsunoko vs.
Excerpt: I’m pretty vocal about my hate for the Wii, but just in case you haven’t heard, I’ll say it one more time. I hate the Wii . So when I started up Tournament of Legends , I had some pretty low expectations of what was to come.
Summary: Weird or not, Tournament of Legends simply doesn’t have what it takes to warrant your time or money. It isn’t that the production values or low or the setup a little too similar to the lowbrow War Gods , it’s that the game often just doesn’t work as it should.
