Gaming Target
Legends of Wrestling is far from a technical achievement graphically – and I don’t think it was really meant to be either. Where it achieves is the ISP system, the deep career mode, and the pure fun and replay value this game carries with it. Having plenty of things to unlock also helps out and increases the desire to open everything up (which you can do with a cheat code, but then you suck if you do that). If you’re looking for an alternative to the WWF glitz games and just want a plain old wrestling game that’s a lot of fun or reminiscent of the old “pick up and play” Acclaim wrestlers of the 16-bit era and prior, this one's worth a shot.

L'ambiance propre à cette discipline est très bien respectée. Si vous le désirez, vous pouvez prendre une chaise et tabasser gaiement votre adversaire. Si vous êtes américain ou fan de Village People, ce titre est pour vous.

Game Informer Magazine
The sport has evolved, but unfortunately, Legends is way behind – not so much in the wrestlers themselves, but in the dumbed-down engine with too few moves, and a lousy create mode. Some great ideas (art style, reversal system), but it still can't hang.

Einige gute Ideen stecken in Legends Of Wrestling: Ein gutes und endlich mal funktionierendes Kombo-System sei mal beispielsweise erwähnt. Auch die Idee -wenn auch aus Lizenzmangel geboren- ehemalige Größen zu reaktivieren und softwaremäßig umzusetzen verdient aufgrund ihrer gelungenen Gestaltung Lob. Doch der langsame Spielablauf und die im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz doch sehr magere Ausbeute an Matchtypen vernichten den anfänglich vorhandenen Spielspaß recht schnell. So ist Legends Of Wrestling nur Wrestling-Fans zu empfehlen, die einmal mit Bret Hart oder Hulk Hogan spielen wollen, jedoch nicht die Geduld haben, den Create-A-Wrestler-Modus anderer Spiele zu benutzen.

The game in general is a let down and brings nothing new to the genre at all. If you want to see wrestlers of old buy Smackdown:JBI and make them in the create mode.

All Game Guide
Legends of Wrestling brings with it some interesting ideas, but as usual, Acclaim doesn't seem to know quite what to do with them, and the result is an ultimately sub-par wrestling game.

Bon je n'aime pas cela mais je vais me répéter. C'est moche, c'est mou, c'est injouable et en plus il faut l'acheter. Les amateurs de catch vont devoir aller voir ailleurs (par exemple du côté de Smackdown Just Bring It). Comme je l'avais conseillé aux possesseurs de Xbox, si vous ne savez pas quoi faire de l'argent nécéssaire à cet achat, donnez-le moi, ça fera les pieds à Acclaim.
