  1. I struggled with the controls, the camera and every other part of this poorly constructed game.
  2. An epic game. But like other grand-scale projects, say the movie "Waterworld" for example, it ends up spreading itself too thin for its own good. [Apr 2002, p.144]
  3. It does almost nothing to capitalize on the power of the Xbox. Sadly, the gameplay is no better than the graphics. [Apr 2002, p.80]
  4. The missions are very basic and straightforward, with no real need for strategy or tactics. So unless you're a sadist and get a kick out of being disappointed, steer well clear.

    It's the most graphically inferior Xbox title yet, and while the controls and combat are entertaining, the bland level design and shortage of puzzles make the gameplay repetitive and boring.
  6. 40
    The AI of your friends is completely laughable as you will witness them stuck behind doors and other obstacles in non-stop walking animation, jump off cliffs and bridges for no reason, and fall out of the sky beside you.
  7. The least helpful radar system yet; Terrible level layouts; many (and I mean MANY) useless rooms and areas.
  8. New Legends is so beaten by "Dynasty Warriors 3" on the less powerful PS2 in visuals, control, theme, and playability that you have to pause and scratch your head to figure out how the Xbox is being taken advantage of.
