Showdown of Legendary Legends is a smash bros inspired brawler that can be played either local or online with up to 4 players
However this isn’t much here…
Theres a typical verses mode, an online mode, and the tournament of legends mode…
Tournament of legends is the meat of this game…
It’s a mode where you choose one of this games 20 characters, choose a difficulty, and battle your way through a variety of 10 different matches to win the tournament of legends…
The variety here in the modes is nice…
It stops the tournament from getting boring as fast as it otherwise would..
But ultimately it doesn’t help this game feel the least bit of fun…
Youll be going through 2 on 2 matches, 2 on 1, 3 on 1, 4v4, 1v1, youll be playing king of the hill type matches all on the games 12 different stages…
Thankfully stages do have a bit of personality to them…
Not as much as smash bros.. but its there
They all feel unique and require different play styles…
and each characters thankfully feels unique here as well..
This is the only thing it does better than a game like brawlhalla for example.. is that each character feels different…
they have a different weight to them and a different set of moves…
Though for better or for worse, the control scheme here is insanely simple..
You have a normal attack that you can charge and a special attack… that’s it..
characters can also block and dodge, but youll mostly just be looking for the characters whos special attack and normal attack you like best…
and some of them are easily spammable…
throughout the matches there are pick ups to call in characters to help you knock opponents off the map, as well as weapons to do the same and health pickups to help you not be knocked around so easy…
And as the match goes on and you do damage youll be able to fill up an awesome meter and pull off an awesome move, which is almost for most characters a guaranteed ko…
but that’s it.. that’s the game…
this is a very mediocre brawler..
The game functions, the online feels smooth… but because everything is so simple, matches ultimately feel button mashy rather than strategic, hectic, or fun.
if you don’t have a character with spammable moves, youre basically just seeing who gets the luckiest hits, who can take the least amount of damage or who can get to pickups first..
I give Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends
a 5/10… Expand
Aug 2, 2016You Have A Wii U Just Get Fking Smash Bros. Why would you waste your money on this game even if you're a kid just who cares it sucks. stop wasting your parents money.
Apr 26, 2016This title can be enjoyed by very young fans of the movie because it's not a bad one, and it does offer some things that Nintendo's popular franchise doesn't - maybe not enough of them that would make anyone choose this one over the latter one, but even though it's lacking in more than one department, it can still provide some fun, under the right conditions.
Jan 18, 2016Fans of the film franchise that want this game purely because it has their favourite panda in it will be treated to an experience way beyond what is usually expected for a movie tie-in, and one that can provide a fun time.
Dec 6, 2015Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends is a lot better than I expected it to be, but it still doesn’t offer quite as much depth or polish as Smash Brothers.
