Legends Of Wrestlemania: Reviewed (360, PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: This sort of shocked me because how can you implement anything different into a wrestling game so close to its counterpart’s release. Well, after getting some hands on time at THQ offices and looking at the review code I have to say “a hell of a lot”. Yuke’s has been at it again with a pretty fine addition to the wrestling genre, something that seems to be pretty well dominated by them for quite a while now. Legends Of Wrestlemania introduces the finest parts of...
Conclusion: Having the ability to add SvR 2009 wrestlers into WWE Legends of WrestleMania is sweet, but you probably won’t feel like you’re missing much if you’re into more ’80s/’90s mat action. It’s a pretty pure lineup—from superstar to who-the-hell-is-that—and many in-between. There are always those that should have made these classic lineup lists but were overlooked, and those who were going to make it but couldn’t because of disparities litigious in nature (such as, where’s the...
Excerpt: A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to preview THQ's latest Wrestling game, Legends of WrestleMania (also referred to as Legends in this review). During my visit to THQ I was not only surprised with how simple the game was, but how well it played too. I was somewhat taken back by the whole experience of getting a chance to play as those wrestlers I idolized back in my youth.
Excerpt: Chock full of nostalgia and sweaty men. The Princess Bride and the lovable Andre the Giant, that is the extent of my wrestling knowledge, so having me preview a wrestling title falls under the category of cosmic hilarity. My inexperience is certainly rife with all sorts of not-smelling-what-The-Rock-is-cooking fodder, but it also proved to be an ideal litmus test for the accessibility of the latest in sweaty theatrics: WWE Legends of Wrestlemania.
Conclusion: Legends of Wrestlemania is a feel-good wrestling
game that revolves around instant action
gratification and exciting montages of past WWE
events. The game doesn’t have many gameplay
features that you’d normally find in the
Smackdown series but what it does have is engage
you to take on as legendary wrestlers from Hulk
Hogan to the mighty Kamala. What makes Legends
of Wrestlemania so much fun is the simplicity of
Excerpt: LoWM features a very simplified style of gameplay compared to anything else Yuke’s has made, including its well-known SmackDown vs. Raw series. Here, all commands are executed with either the D-pad/left analog stick and the four face buttons - leaving a lot of buttons unused, and resulting in a very cluttered control scheme that makes basic things like kicking out of pins, running off the ropes, and climbing to the top rope a chore.
Excerpt: WWE Legends of WrestleMania review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com After years of integrating a handful of pro wrestling’s legends into the SmackDown vs. Raw series, and suffering through Acclaim’s horrendous Legends of Wrestling series, longtime wrestling fans have long-hoped for a game that did justice to a robust amount of the industry’s most historic talent. Sadly, Legends of WrestleMania isn’t that game.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The announcement of Legends of WrestleMania came as a surprise. After all, the majority of the announced roster was already playable in regular WWE games. THQ however felt it was necessary to release a game with only legends of WrestleMania aboard. We are not really complaining here, after all Smack Down Vs Raw 2009 was a pretty decent effort. This shifts the pressure onto Legends of WrestleMania however.
Summary: " WWE Legends Of Wrestlemania " is a solid wrestling game, that fans will probably truly appreciate. However, this was clearly an attempt by THQ to bring back lapsed or new WWE players into the fold for the next Smackdown game, and I don’t think they’ve been able to pull it off. Some dodgy crowds, animations, interfaces, and some really long loading times bring the package down a little.
