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.
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: Although many wrestling games pride themselves on featuring up-to-date rosters and letting you do any move you want during a match, Legends of Wrestlemania takes a different approach. It appeals to nostalgic wrestling fans, giving them the chance to play as classic wrestlers in historic Wrestlemania matches from the '80s and '90s.
Pros: Exciting video montages of classic events, Great roster of past legends
Cons: Simplistic, repetitive combat, Grossly exaggerated character models, Legend Killer mode is grueling and dull
Pro wrestling game is fun-yet-shallow revisit of history.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a professional wrestling game featuring the sport's classic stars, such as Hulk Hogan. Wrestlers punch, kick, and slam opponents onto the mat. Some use weapons like steel chairs to beat down foes. Wrestlers will start bleeding from the head when hit hard. The game is playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend for children under the age of 12.
Excerpt: Nostalgia is a beautiful thing. Rose-tinted goggles make us all long for the days when we ran home from school so fast your chest felt like it might explode. Why did we willingly do such a thing? To put the TV on and watch, well, there's an endless list of fondly remembered 80s shows. Here's some of mine: Transformers, Thundercats, Airwolf, The A-Team, Defenders of the Earth, Dungeons and Dragons, Knightmare and... WWF.
Conclusion: The last problem I had with this game was the chain grapples. It was all QTE. That wasen't cool. I felt like I was just watching the match instead of playing it. Well, If you really like the legends of yesterday, I suggest a rental. Other than that, I suggest SVR 09' over this. Go check out mu SVR 09' review if you are still unsure.
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
