    Not a bad game. Really good graphics, nice sound design and good gameplay. The main problem is that this game does not have enough content: few characters, few game modes and no online option. A good choice if you can find it for less than 30 dollars.

    Game receives a bum rap for not being Soul Caliber caliber. GRAPHICS: Good by any standard, fantastic for the Wii- 9/10. ADVENTURE: The story, dialogue, and characters all fall into the so-bad-it-is-good category. The real time events/mini-games vary from why-don't-all-games-have-this (monster attacks) to the-developers-must-hate-us (armor repairs).

Very limited character selection (8 to start, some play the same)- 5/10. MECHANICS: Mostly intuitive. Without any manual or tutorial we managed to get the slightly sluggish controls down quickly- 7/10. EXTRAS: Considering the cluster-#@^$ that was the development of this game the finished product offers two big rays of sunshine; 1. a solid rental/bargain bin purchase and 2. a good 'rough draft' for a future release that incorporates MotionPlus, more content, and maybe a better Sega license (Eternal Champions anyone?)- 6/10.

    Tournament of Legends isnt a piece of crap nor is it an extraordinary gem. It is decent at best. The graphics, sound design (not counting the dialog, which comes off as average to lame), and gameplay are all excellent. This games biggest and probably only con is its immense lack of content and variety.

This games biggest and probably only con is its immense lack of content and variety. There arent very many characters, stages, or playing modes, but it slightly makes up for that with a diverse amount of attack variations and weapons. Still even with that small benefit, the overall feel of the game's experimental nature is lukewarm. (EDITED REVIEW) Expand

    Tournament Of Legends isn't a awful game. Despite imperfection and lacks, the title is enough enjoyable. Fans of fighting games will undoubtedly spend time with it, but don't expect to play it for months, or not to suffer the excessive flatness of the combat system.
  2. Like The Conduit, Tournament of Legends feels like a wasted opportunity: the graphics are pretty good and the controls are ok, but the game itself is a mediocre no-brainer beat'em up, which also lacks an adequate amount of content.

    It's hard not to wonder just what exactly High Voltage Software is trying to prove. [Issue#99, p.114]
