Summary: This game looks and handles just fine. Until you lock up with another wrestler. At that moment, a giant picture of a random controller button will appear on the screen and you have to press the same button at the EXACT moment it appears. You have about a 25% chance of success on that, since there are 4 buttons, X,Y,B and A. If you don't win "guess that button", you get reversed and slammed. Doesn't matter how much power you have.
Summary: I was semi-excited to finally pick up this game. First off the game has a lot of classic characters, but are missing a few like Macho Man who had some classic matches that could have easily been put into the game. I like the video sequences that play before the Wrestlemania rewrite, etc. matches and that part of the game is pretty good. The controls are absolutely horrible though.
Summary: I actually waited awhile before picking up "Legends of Wrestlemania" simply because I had laid down enough cash for "Smackdown vs. Raw 2009" and hadn't really played that all too much. Didn't want to drop another $60 for "Legends of Wrestlemania" and have another game just gathering dust. What changed my mind, and to be honest one of only two reasons I would recommend "Legends of Wrestlemania" to anyone, is that I found out you can import the roster from "Smackdown vs.
Summary: IMO, I think this game could've been so much more. If they only incorporated the controls from Smackdown vs. Raw '09 I think this game would've been rated higher. Once I read the controls setting in the manual I knew this game was gonna be horrible to control. There's not much you can do to your opponent when he is down. Again, IMO this game could've been made so much better. I think the creators rushed this game.
Summary: So i went and bought this game brand new. This game needs some serious work before a sequel. First more legends. They call it a legends of wrestlemania. Yet no Macho Man, Ricky Steamboat, Paul Ordorff, George "the Animal" Steele, Miss Elizabeth, IRS, i could go on and on. Second thing, the should of stuck with the smackdown vs raw 09 controls. First Match after importing svr 09 data. warrior vs hawkins. hawkins wins. controls make no sense.
Summary: The graphics are amazing- very realistic and life-like! The roster is amazing- lots of classic WWE stars who all took part in the Wrestlemania series! The compatibility with Smack-Down is also amazing- giving you the chance to combine the present with the past! But- there are still some major problems with this WWE game- like the fact that there isn't a tournament mode of any kind.
Excerpt: "Having been hooked on WWE wrestling games ever since the Smackdown series first hit the original Playstation back in 2000; always when a new WWE game is released I look well and truly forward to playing it. THQ took time away from the Smackdown series here with Legends of Wrestlemania, and decided to put together a game where you can compete as some of your favourite wrestlers from the eighties and nineties such as Andre the Giant, Bret Hart, and ...
Pros: The ability to play as some of your wrestling favourites .
Cons: The game's too easy and just generally a bit rubbish .
