    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.

    The upside was seeing some of the old school guys in the ring. The downside was the sluggishness of the controls. The fact that the controllers took a worse beating than the guys on the screen made for a good laugh. If it weren't for the sentimental vote, I would have gave this a "tired" 3.

  1. If you know the names Von Erich’s, The Iron Sheik or One Man Gang, then you might add a point here.
  2. The characters in Legends have an exaggerated action-figure look, but they move smoothly and have a robust collection of moves.
  3. Where's the Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair, Dave Boy Smith, Hakeem the African Dream, Bushwhackers, Killer Bees, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Big John Studd, Andre the Giant, and others?
