    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.
