  1. Legendary is a fantastic thrill ride that you won’t soon forget.
  2. While the formula feels a bit dated now, the result is a shooter that is still incredibly fun. [Dec 2008, p.90]
  3. This could well be a surprise hit for those willing to invest the time. Despite a lack of polish, there's a relatively deep story for fans of mythology.
  4. Now that I’ve beaten the game and stand back to surmise my feelings, I can honestly say that although there were a few times when my blood boiled and I was tempted to reach for the teabags, cups and saucers(because of cheap moments); Legendary is actually quite compelling and solid fun.
  5. The game tells a compelling story, is loaded with exciting combat, and is chock full of memorable moments. It could have used a bit more polish in certain areas, true, but as an interactive summer blockbuster, Legendary delivers.

    The only thing I don't appreciate was the abscence of the multiplayer players (not working or don't know why)
    But surely they are playing the campaign of this very interesting game (Y)

    Its a fun FPS with some really intense moments and lots of action. Overall a really good first person shooter. Dont see why most of theIts a fun FPS with some really intense moments and lots of action. Overall a really good first person shooter. Dont see why most of the critics hate it so much. Only things i didnt like was that you had to be very close and precise to any "action" (break the security panel to open a door, turn a lever) and it didnt give me the achievement for beating the game. On top of that, you have to beat it three times to get all three difficulty level achievements because they dont stack. I was planning on playing it on easy and hard to get all those achievements but since it didnt unlock for normal mode I wont bother. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Always avoided this game due to critics or storeowners. Recently I've been buying all these supposable horrible games that are cheaper as the years have gone by. By no means is this a top tier game in terms of production value but its fun, has decent enough gameplay, original and cool monsters that need to be killed uniquely, and some respectable epic scenes. The critics main complaint is storyline ... Give me a break. There are so many hi rated games w/ crape stories. Worth your five bucks at gamestop. Full Review »
