  1. A truly Kaufmanesque moment occurs in Exhibition mode, when you can elect to face Andy Kaufman as Andy Kaufman. He would have loved that.
  2. The game brings back some great moments in the history of wrestling and that alone deserves a look from wrestling fans.
  3. It's not WWE and it's not NWA but it's the people who made those franchises possible. Though I wish Ric Flair was in here so we could have some of the bloody cage matches of yore.
  4. Individual matches are easy to win and the career mode quickly becomes an exercise in repetition.
  5. Legends of Wrestling II's different modes, which feature a relatively unique approach are undermined by the substandard gameplay.
  6. The gameplay system is confusing, the graphics are mediocre, and the sound is average.
  7. Stupid A.I. ensures that computer-controlled fighters will ignore the grapplers they've supposedly developed a hate for, and stand idly by while pins are being made. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.89]

    I agree with the below comment. This game is OK, but after a couple of months its gets boring. Finishers are hard to do, with some wrestlers.
