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”.
Excerpt: Bodies blown up by steroids, shining by a film of oil and dressed in a tiny swim short that leaves nothing to the imagination. No, were not talking about some woman’s dream but WWE Legends of Wrestlemania. The latest in the wrestling series by THQ.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: 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.
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.
