LamLe8This game is very fun. The gameplay, story, and mechanics work well. You rate games on what they do and are, not on what, an arbitrary "you" think it should be. The graphics are pleasing and good. They really did a good job on creating atmosphere, to give the locales a sense of emotionality. The audio is satisfactory and surprisingly effective in places. There are some really good and charming moments in the game. I also like the labaratory where the player can have different monsters pitted against each other. That's a winning touch. This game deserves better than how people are dismissing it- probably insider stuff anyway. Well I'm here to say listen to an independent. Maybe Spark didn't have Resistance, Gears of War, or Fallout money, but they crafted a very good game in spite of it. They also thought of a more idependent and original idea than nuclear fallout, or aliens of some sort. My son and I both like the game and to get the sense of what we ususally like in shooters I play F.E.A.R. and Far Cry 2, and he likes R6V2, COD4, and Far Cry 2 online.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Even when Legendary had some pretty bad reviews, I decided to give it a try since it was available for a cheap price. I must say that I was positively suprised by the game. It had some issues, like with the cutscenes lagging a bit at the beginning, but overally it was a decent game. It might have been a bit too difficult for these modern casual gamers with its small "puzzles" as there was no guides. In the warehouse with the first werewolves, I tried using boxes to get to the upper level and it didn't work. Got fustraded and shot a barrer which I then noticed to cause the platform go higher with the other getting down. That is what a game needs. Few puzzles that will make you mad and, after finishing, jump in joy. Anyway, Legendary might not be the best game out there, but definitely worth atleast one playthrough.… Expand
DerekSaundercock0The game sounded interesting, so I immediately slid it into my PS3. All I can say after I beheaded my first werewolf after what seemed like 50 hacks at his neck with a FIRE AXE, only to be finished by another werewolf, this game was dead to me. Slow movements, a not so easy "easy difficulty setting", and now that ive played it, boring story, this game gets a giant goose egg from me.… Expand
