WWE Legends of WrestleMania
Game Over Online
21 April 2015
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: 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: 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.
Summary: Legends of
Wrestlemania is a mixed bag. Fans of
Raw may not be able to get past the drastically different gameplay style. Ultimately, the game is for nostalgia junkies that fondly remember the WWE/F stars of their youth, and want to recreate classic WrestleMania moments.
Pros: Excellent roster, except for the lack of the Macho Man Randy Savage, Relive Mode, Little things (arenas, camera graphics, wrestler celebrations, managers), Can import the, Smackdown vs Raw, roster
Cons: Commentary gets repetitive, Nothing unique or fun outside of the Relive mode, No Macho Man Randy Savage, Can't import, Legends of Wrestlemania, roster into, Smackdown vs. Raw
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.
Excerpt: Man, was I looking forward to playing Legends of Wrestlemania. I used to absolutely adore professional wrestling when I was a younger lad, and despite becoming less and less enamoured as the years went on, there’ll always be a place in my heart for the likes of the Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan and,...
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.
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.
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...
