  1. Acclaim comes off of the top rope with what could be one of the sleeper hits of this holiday season. With all of the stars that made wrestling what it is today, Legends of Wrestling is a must-have.
  2. Maybe I’m sadistic, but it’s the funniest stuff I’ve seen in a long time. [Feb 2002, p.152]
  3. It is fair to say that had Legends of Wrestling possessed the wealth of options present in the aforementioned "Smackdown," it would be the ultimate wrestlefest.
  4. When you press a button to pull off a move there's far too long a wait for any action, and the game actually builds up a queue which can mean you are waiting for moves to happen before you can continue.
  5. The game is very mechanical…and it’s so…painfully…slow. [Feb 2002, p.108]
  6. Dull and repetitive. Truly a boring title.
  7. At best an incomplete, clunky game with derivative appearance and gameplay.
