  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.

    To be honest, once i began playing LOW, I have totally forgot the SD! controls. LOL :) Anyway, a kicking game with a lot of potential. Pretty cool entrances with cool variations! A must have, long time wrestling fan or not. Expand

    Low rules, it has more replay value then the other wwf games like sd jbi and raw. I guess you people are all wwf fan boys. I like the wwf and their games but low is way better then all of them but if acclaim called the game wwf legends you people would say this game is the best you ever played old school still rules and low just proves it.

    I like it, could be a better gameplay, but for a cd based game, it is fun and once used to the buttons it is challenging.

    Yeah...but no. The wrestlers are a HUGE plus, and almost make it ejoyable. But the controls unashamedly let this title down. The career mode is promising in comparison to SMackdwon:JBI, but it tires and bores very quickly. Honestly, this isn't worth more than an overnight video store hire. Expand

    I like some of the characters on this game but what is up with the controls? It has a very bad lack of controls and entrances. And when you grab the rope, the person is not even touching it and it calls a rope break. I body slammed someone in a 3-way match and the other person fell too. I only like this game because of the wrestlers like Road Warriors and Hulk Hogan and Rob Van Dam and some others. I think this game lacks wrestlers like Andre the Giant and lacks controls. The next game needs to be fixed if there are people going to pay for Legends of Wrestling 2 (if they have one). Expand
