  1. Legendary is a breakthrough, a revolution as compared to Spark Unlimited’s previous shooter - Turning Point. This one has a story, better graphics, more frequent checkpoints and almost no slowdowns. However, it still can’t hold a candle to more serious competition.

    Unfortunately, some good monsters and a decent multiplayer mode don’t really save the game from being mired down in its own mediocrity.

    Stiff, confused. [Jan 2009, p.70]
  4. Constantly spawning enemies… Solid walls that light can leak through… A bad first-person shooter experience.
  5. Legendary is an awful game that brings to recent memories the disappointing Turning Point: Fall of Liberty. If you like a pain in the ass, this game is good for help you trying to massacre yourself, but if you are a smart person, run away from this one.

    Monotonous and slightly broken; a herculean task just to complete. [Issue#16, p.65]
  7. All things told, the game reeks of derivation.

    By the time I'd defeated my 10th werewolf, I was already tired of needing to cut or shoot its head off so it didn't regenerate. By the time I defeated my 200th, I just wanted to turn the game off.
  9. 25
    Even the superior mouse and keyboard configuration can't overcome the technical issues. If you need a shooter, look elsewhere, because Legendary isn't close to what its namesake claims to be.

    This to me a Unique FPS and graphics seem very immersive the only issues are the check points and various AI was a really good challenge the This to me a Unique FPS and graphics seem very immersive the only issues are the check points and various AI was a really good challenge the boss battles where easy but looked good and you dont need a really good pc to run it. I recommend this game to anybody at all but it does require a unique person to enjoy to the fullest. Full Review »

    Reviewing this game fairly, it is a brilliant storyline and there is alot to fight, there are never any slow downs and you are always doingReviewing this game fairly, it is a brilliant storyline and there is alot to fight, there are never any slow downs and you are always doing something, the type of enemy you are fighting changes often, which is very good because you never get bored. The combat system works well and there arent many bugs i have come across, the graphics are decent - nothing revolutionary but they work well and deliver whats necessary. Sounding in this game isnt an issue, as its clearly not the greatest there is nothing terrible about sound except for when a werewolf "howls", the standard howl would have made it realistic (as realistic as werewolves are). There are numerous boss battles, some of them are very annoying because of the difficulty, even playing on easy is going to annoy you against a boss as they can hit you 500 times in a second. Back to the story, its a very good story that has never been touched upon, the ideas are all there, its just a shame that a massive budget wasnt set in, if the graphics were peaked, everything perfectly designed and nothing rushed, this game would be amazing...actually amazing, i really enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who doesnt care about the small things, just enjoy a great story line and alot of things to fight. Although its nothing ground breaking, you have to admire what Spark Unlimited did here and play the game for story and shooting Mythical Beasts. A very good game that needed another year in development for extra graphical improvements and better AI Full Review »
