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: When I first got this game i thought it was going to be good. When I started playing it, I thought it was fun. After a few days it got boring. The gameplay is repetitive. There are not enough different kinds of matches. It was also too easy.
Summary: I got this game last week and at first I was excited. Once I played it i was disappointed. This game is mostly for hardcore WWE fans. The graphics are good but the controls are awful. If you were going to buy a WWE game you should get SmackDown vs Raw 2011 instead.
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: legends of wrestlemania is not a good game. the gameplay is simply bad. i wish legends of wrestlemania was actually like the smackdown vs raw series. there was no reason they needed to go out of there way to make the game so uniqe. because that made it bad. i never even did a full match because the game was so boring. i never even knew how to do my finisher. create a wrestler mode was better than everything else by far. all the game modes were horrible.
Summary: Fun: For starters, I am one of those old style wrestling fans that will automatically go nuts for a game like this and ignore all the negative sides to it. I rented this game, and at first sight the character models look EXACTLY like the infamous Legends of Wrestling series, especially Hulk Hogan's model. I felt a feeling like "please say it isnt so". I start an exibition match. Roster is great although I didnt need to see a classic version of Hunter Hurst Helmsley.
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.
