Excerpt: Before it went under last year, Acclaim managed to squeeze out one final franchise to titilate, yet ultimately disappoint gamers. Legends of Wrestling was a great idea, to take all of the classic superstars of wrestling and pit them against one another, allowing players to create 'dream-matches' with their favourite superstars against one another to decide who really was the greatest.
Summary: I Bought this game on impulse thinking that finally a decent Wrestling game had been released on the XBOX (Previous efforts Raw, Raw 2 and the other Legends game falling seriously short on gameplay and control method. OH dear. What a crock. It essentially ends up being another button basher, with some programing bugs that are simply unforgivable. ( Getting hit while opponent is over other side of ring.
Summary: Everyone kept telling me that LOW was going to be rubbish and i shouldn't even consider buying it, but the draw of being able to play as Bret Hitman Hart again was too much, so i did it...i got the game. mistake. the graphics are good, cartoony, but still good, the array of wrestlers is cool, and the idea of fighting through the different places in the US to work your way up is good, but thats it. good intentions but not much else.
