  • Summary: Savage by Nature. Two allies torn apart by tragedy...yet bound by fate. The three sacred glyphs...the mythic and forbidden symbols of an ancient world torn apart. Only these mystic relics have the power to open the Gateway of Chaos and lead the people to the Red Moon. Legend says that when the three glyphs meet, the three worlds will once again be reunited. Two men, once friends, now have their fates tied together by the tragic death of a young maiden. One, a brave young knight and summoner of the Chaos Legion. The other, a noble lord who has fallen to the dark side. Both hold thekey to the sacred glyphs in their power. The legions shall be summoned in this dark gothic opera! [Capcom] Expand

  1. Solid in virtually every way, it’ll more than tide you over till Devil May Cry 3 comes along.
  2. Chaos Legion is one of the great unsung brawlers of the PS2. So the story is cliched beyond belief. So the characters are forgettable. Maybe its presentation could have been executed better. Big deal. The game is overflowing with some of the toughest brawling action you’ll ever face.
  3. First, it provides an engaging story (told through beautiful cut-scenes that kept me on my toes till the very end. Second...building up each legion's stats keeps the action from feeling monotonous. [July 2003, p.112]
  4. 65
    While the game promises something interesting, Chaos Legion levels off mid-way through and never elevates over redundant button masher status.
  5. Chaos Legion isn't as sharp as it should be. Beautiful, polished and at times engaging Capaom's latest invention, nevertheless, tests neither the reactions nor the brain enough to hold your interest. [May 2003, p.93]
  6. Action fans might find the game a temporary diversion, but it has no staying power.
  7. Thrown in the face of a history of outstanding action gaming, Chaos Legion may just be one of the worst action titles of the year. Imperfect controls and lackluster gameplay.

    This is the most fun game that I have ever played,it is so fun that I continuously play it almost every day,Its the only game in my video game library that keeps me coming back for more and more.I literally fell in love with chaos legion the first day I played it,it,s a real addiction.I Realy Hope and pray that there will be a sequel one day.Finally Iwould like to thank everyone at capcom for creating Chaos Legion and making it possible because chaos legion is one of those very few unique,magnificent, and unforgetable games that only comes along once in a life time.

    Okay Chaos Legion is basically a beat 'em up with a twist, you can summon monstars called legions to support you. The legion can perform strong attacks, but you have to give out orders for them to do that, but the best part about the legions is the way they boost up your main character. You can gain combos, magic attacks, extra strength, defense, life and just about anything else from your legions. The gameplay is extremely fun seeing how you can level up your legions and do it all with syle. However the game isn't as stylish as I would wish it would be. The games graphics are actually really good. People complain about the mass amount of fog in this game, but I actually find the fog to give off a fantastic atmospere. Enemies and characters all look pretty good. The games sound however is it's weak point. The voice actors in English are okay at the best. The Japanese acting is a bit better but could have been done a bit nicer. The music started off great but the farther in the game you got, the less music played. The story is actually pretty good. It actually only seems good to me becuase it reminds me of old fantasy games with their awkward storylines. Overall, Chaos Legion is one Fantastic game with enough replay value to make me atleast rent this game a few times, if not buy it. However many people will be turned off by the games sound and repetitive gameplay. Expand
