    This game is not the best game ever witnessed by Pc or todays consoles. But it by far isnt the worst. The fact that it came out amidst the likes of Farcry 2, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead and the countless other great games that were released over the last couple of months, and the fact tht it was labeled the same price tag left it as an obvious thing for critics to jump at and give a bad This game is not the best game ever witnessed by Pc or todays consoles.

The fact that it came out amidst the likes of Farcry 2, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead and the countless other great games that were released over the last couple of months, and the fact tht it was labeled the same price tag left it as an obvious thing for critics to jump at and give a bad review, but the problem is people are to busy comparing to all these great games that they can;'t step bacvk and relise what a great game this actually is. Legendary tries hard to create a game that at times leaves you in awe and wondering why it got such a bad score, whether you stopped dead in your tracks by a ginourmous Kraken clawing at the big ben, or chased through New York City by a giant golem ripping apart the realisitic city sceneary, your never left unsatisfied after a play on this game. Yes, it has its flaws, and plenty of them, but Sparks Unlimited really did put everythin they could put into this game with thier budget, and they did a bloddy good job of it too. The ytried there best, tried something new and were slated unfairly for it. I'll be surpries if Sparks unlimited ever takes off after pulling off thid game and seing the pathetically negetive revbiews its got. A good buy if your looking for an action packed, massivle cinematic game, but are not hoping for anything truly ' Legendary ' I give this game a justified 7 out of 10 Expand

    Legendary is definitely a case where the developer's reach exceeded their grasp. Sure, not every technical element of the game is spot-on. Sure, the pace might be a little jumpy sometimes, and it's probably too hard alltogether. Still, Legendary is worth playing, on the strength of its spectacle alone.

The developers have mastered the art of the scripted sequence--Half-Life's have nothing on what happens here. The first twenty minutes alone make Legendary required playing for anyone who can appreciate a game that makes you feel like you're living through an epic summer blockbuster. Expand

    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 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. Expand

    Legendary isn't necessarily bad, but while it had an interesting idea for a game, fighting mythological creatures instead of humans and aliens, it didn't do much with the idea. Also while the very first part of the game is very impressive visually, it just feels like a walk in the park cause you're not really in danger.

Also while the very first part of the game is very impressive visually, it just feels like a walk in the park cause you're not really in danger. While some of the enemies, especially the werewolves seem interesting, they quickly become annoying by the way you have to kill, and the game don't always let you do it. And while the game has some very amazing visual effects, most of the graphics are below average. And I get that this game had an unfortunate release time, being released alongside other expected-to-be-great games but that is not an excuse for poor work. This game could have been better, and I for one hoped it had been. But the story isn't all that bad and the shooting works fine most of the time. If you're a fan of first person shooters and the idea of fighting mythological creatures are interesting to you, then you should buy it. I wouldn't recommend spending a lot of money on it, but if you find it for cheap, then go ahead and give it a try. Expand

    Quite fun game. If You like fps and would like to shoot something else than soldiers in cod/battlefields/killzones or aliens in Halo/resistance etc. than this game is for You. Its unpolished but put that aside and its really enjoyable.

  1. While the formula feels a bit dated now, the result is a shooter that is still incredibly fun. [Dec 2008, p.90]

    The dev team has an eye for spectacle – a towering golem comprised of cars and other metallic detritus is a visual highlight – but these moments mostly serve to illustrate how dull your actual actions are by contrast. [Dec 2008, p.98]
  3. The problem with this is that Spark is relentless at throwing a huge number of beasties your way, crowding you into a corner and ripping you to shreds. There's not enough breathing space for you to heal yourself and absorb energy to use it effectively as a defensive measure. To say this had us throwing the controller at the telly and cursing is an understatement.
