    If you want a racing game that's cheap and cheerful, easy to play and accessible, then The Legend Lives is the one for you!
  2. This racing game is made for lovers of all things GM. No, I'm lying to see if you're paying attention. If you don't love Mustangs, you won't like this game.
  3. The split screen action is worth keeping the game around for a rainy day, and the time attacks kept me addicted for hours.
  4. There's a nice sense of speed that carries the game through the sometimes bland environments.
  5. It's a budget title, what do you expect? My only reasonable gripe here is that 2K Games included both Xbox Live and Custom Soundtrack support in Ford Racing 3, so why not do the same once again?
  6. It's shallow, it's hollow, but it is a whole lot of fun. And it's only fifteen bucks for heaven's sake!
  7. It's all perfectly meaty, well-constructed stuff, and there's little you can fault, other than the fact the subject matter isn't particularly engaging. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  8. A quick, pointless Career mode and some extremely poor multiplayer options embarrassingly fail to justify the miniscule price tag. Swerve to avoid.
  9. A competent arcade racer, with a decent feel to the controls, powerslides and other fancy moves, and a reasonable amount of entertainment. It's not an A-list game by any means, but the price tag makes that perfectly clear.
  10. Easy to learn, easy to play, and easy to afford, Ford Mustang: The Legend Lives is a barely tolerable, exceedingly temporary fix for the financially restricted racing beginner.

    The lack of depth in the game's structure and driving system would deter most hardcore gamers from trying it, while the Mustang fans would be driven away by the over-competitive AI before you can start a Mustang's engine and warm it up.
  12. Sadly, where the game fails to excite most is behind the wheel, due to poor physics and handling. Drivers will rarely find the need to take their finger off the throttle or cease driving recklessly, as cars never suffer damage.
  13. There is really no need to get this game at all unless you are a massive fan of Mustangs but even then, there are better games out there that feature these classic V8 powered muscle machines and do everything better than what's on offer here.
