  1. The counter/reversal/combination system is definitely a heavyweight champion.
  2. For the old timers, nostalgia is enough reason to pick this one.

    A perfect way to take a walk down memory lane and relive the good old days of professional wrestling.
  4. The characters are visually and aurally generic (including the crowd), and overall the audio is bad. On the flip side, it’s pretty easy to pick up and play against a buddy with wrestlers built from the ground up.

    As good as wrestling gets on the Xbox. [Fall 2002, p.121]
  6. It has great ideas but executes it horribly.
  7. While the idea of playing as these wrestling legends is certainly appealing, Legends of Wrestling sadly doesn't follow through with a game that's as good as its concept.
