  1. Legend doesn't offer many new things, but if you can't be better than Diablo, you can at least try to create a good copy. In the case of Legand, this was a wise choice.

    It's just a hack'n'slash done (more or less) right, like Loki, Dungeon Siege, Titan Quest or grandpa Diablo. Nothing more, nothing less and it wouldn't be memorable at all, were it not for the cheeky cursor - a tiny winged lady sprite who offers helpful hints and abrasive but to the point commentary of our doings. [May 2008]
  3. L:HoG has promise, but there’s nothing new to see or do here.

    Legend: Hand of God isn't a totally awful game, but that said, it isn't much fun. Multiplayer would help, but it's still a pretty paint-by-numbers action RPG in a world where the Diablo series is still on top.

    Legend: Hand of God is a typical kind of game that misrepresents itself. At first glance you see an astounding and flawless product but soon you will find out that behind the excellent graphics there is a half-empty world with repeatable quests and poor character development. [Sept 2008]

    The very definition of average. [Nov 2008, p.64]
  7. Ultimately, I think that the developers got bored before finishing Legend: Hand of God. And considering the game’s quality, it’s not really worth the admission price.
  8. Legend is just another uninspired action RPG.

    For a title like Legend, it's a first class ticket to the recycle bin. [Nov 2008, p.68]

    LEGEND was an interesting game, at first when i got it, the story seemed vapid and uninspired, but when i actually got into it, it seemedLEGEND was an interesting game, at first when i got it, the story seemed vapid and uninspired, but when i actually got into it, it seemed actually deeper then Diablo 2 what with it's lush environments, unique kill animations, amusing ragdoll, and dynamic lighting which really shows especially in cave sections which were a real treat. I also liked the detailed enemy designs, although the animations themselves could use some work, with better voice acting, and honestly, after a while it got a tad bit tedious and tiresome, either just form the constant grind of the action or the repetition in how the environment is designed, something made the experience feel like it was just one big grind after playing for an extended period of time. If the game fixed the horrible VA, fixed the pace, and made the levelling system a bit more detailed, it could've received a much higher score such as an 8. But as it stands, it's little more then something to tide you over till Diablo 3 arrives or maybe just something to experiance for yourself and see if you like it. Full Review »

    LEGEND is far better than most reviews try to tell you - it´s not "uninspired" (Gamespot) just because it´s from Germany and not LEGEND is far better than most reviews try to tell you - it´s not "uninspired" (Gamespot) just because it´s from Germany and not developed in US. I think it´s better than Titan Quest and much more innovative. Full Review »

If you play H&S games then you should try it. Am actually expect pile of trash after see reviews but was surprised how good it is. Am spend the same time on this game and Titan Quest am definitely must say that LHG keep me more and am still remember some moments where TQ feels completely empty and boring. Where maybe TQ have better design in locations and classic Diablo like inventory style. But in real content and gameplay LHG somehow win with TQ and few other H&S games. Am would give it 10 just for first good impressions, where in general its probably around 6 because few things could be better.

    And am give it zero because I hate respawns in RPG games because you dont feel any progression by it. I mean you just walk there and when look back its again full of monsters? LOL This is ridiculous.
