    The lack of depth in the game’s structure and driving system would deter most hardcore gamers from trying it, while the Mustang fans would be driven away by the over-competitive AI before you can start a Mustang’s engine and warm it up.
  2. It’s stylish enough with its heavy metal soundtrack and graphics to hold its head up against those ultra fussy techno-tappit-head driving games (the ones that make you choose what type of screws hold the suspension together before you are allowed to leave the pits) but it’s easy enough to be fun and challenging at the same time.
  3. If you want a racing game that's cheap and cheerful, easy to play and accessible, then The Legend Lives is the one for you!
  4. Easy to learn, easy to play, and easy to afford, Ford Mustang: The Legend Lives is a barely tolerable, exceedingly temporary fix for the financially restricted racing beginner.
  5. Sadly, where the game fails to excite most is behind the wheel, due to poor physics and handling. Drivers will rarely find the need to take their finger off the throttle or cease driving recklessly, as cars never suffer damage.

    For a budget title, this game more than holds its own. The graphics (car models especially), control and sound, I dare say are right up there with a lot of the racers publishers are charging you 50 bucks to play. The variety of cars is excellent. Even the underrated Mustang II is represented in excellent detail. The cars are so detailed you can clearly see the logos on the wheel caps! Any lover of the Mustang or arcade style racing games can't go wrong with this one and for only 10 bucks! Expand

    So so of a race game... Still nothing has come close to EA's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. Now thats awesome.

    I think this game received too many uneccesary points given by the user. This game is mediocre and not that interesting. Nothing new is brought within the game making it very tiresome within 2hrs. Although the game may feature may feature some cool things nonetheless this game just couldn't cut it. Expand
