    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.

    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.

    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 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 I like some of the characters on this game but what is up with the controls?

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

    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.

  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?
