Reviews and Problems with WWE Legends of WrestleMania

WWE Legends of WrestleMania
11 July 2009
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: Untold Legends, Tomb Raider: Legend, Legends of Wrestling. There seems to be a pattern here. For every Legend of Zelda, there are a handful of mediocre games with a legendary title. In time for the 25th anniversary of wrestling’s Super Bowl, Legends of Wrestlemania is in stores now and is hoping to break the trend of mediocre "legend" games.
Pros: Relive, Rewrite and Redefine = old school bliss., Import feature makes for a huge roster., Finkel and theme music are nostalgic bliss.
Cons: Gameplay is almost too simple., Legend Killer mode is boring., Jim Ross and The King are still terrible.
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, well…the Honky Tonk Man.
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: I used to be a major wrestling fan back in the day. I still catch the occasional show if I can be bothered, but it doesn’t interest me the way it used to. However, I always make a point of watching WrestleMania, which I have watched every year since I stayed up to see WrestleMania IX as a kid. I will admit that I do love wrestling games, though.
Summary: 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
Excerpt: This year, WWE will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their flagship show – Wrestlemania. Over the last quarter of a century, it has been the biggest stage for professional wrestlers to show the world what they are capable of – good and bad. This is also somewhat of a landmark title for THQ, too. It is the first “spin-off” from their annual Smackdown vs. Raw franchise, which for the last few years has been taking two steps backwards for every step forward it makes.
Excerpt: Wrestlemania is a global phenomenon, with millions of people each year tuning in to see the crown jewel in Sports Entertainment and watch larger than life athletes gives it all they have on the grandest stage of them all. Each year, Wrestlemania is combined with the WWE: Hall of Fame in which the legends who paved the way are honoured for helping make the event what it is today.
