Legendary Wings is an excellent shooter, worthy of a place in any shooter fan's library of games. The only other game to have this mythological feel to it would be Namco's Phelios for the Sega Genesis (also highly recommended) - actually, Phelios drew quite a few comparisons to Legendary Wings when it first came out. Of course, if you don't like shooters, stay clear of both of these games. But as it is, Legendary Wings is one of the best.

"Così com'è, Legendary Wings su NES si merita un 6 molto stiracchiato. Va detto però che già il materiale di partenza non forniva grandi spunti su cui lavorare, motivo per cui è stato giustamente dimenticato. Questo clone capcomiano di Xevious ha dalla sua soltanto l’originalità dell’ambientazione e della grafica, ma in definitiva non riesce a resistere alla prova del tempo."

Lengendary Wings is a curious shooter with average gameplay. Your winged character looks like a transvestite with his red shorts and pink boots (c'mon!). The gameplay offers a mix of horizontal and vertical stages, and in addition to shooting you can drop bombs (a la Xevious). Legendary Wing's graphics are generic and I didn't find the creatures to be particularly exciting. Some require multiple shots to destroy, but there's no way of knowing how much damage you've inflicted until they blow up. Power-ups are key to this game, and you won't get far without them. Unfortunately, they're few and far between, and if you don't snag the first one you may as well hit the reset button. A two-player simultaneous mode is included, but its slowdown is aggravating. Legendary Wings isn't all bad, but shooting fans can do better.
