    If you want a racing game that's cheap and cheerful, easy to play and accessible, then The Legend Lives is the one for you!
  2. This racing game is made for lovers of all things GM. No, I'm lying to see if you're paying attention. If you don't love Mustangs, you won't like this game.
  3. The split screen action is worth keeping the game around for a rainy day, and the time attacks kept me addicted for hours.
  4. It's all perfectly meaty, well-constructed stuff, and there's little you can fault, other than the fact the subject matter isn't particularly engaging. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  5. A quick, pointless Career mode and some extremely poor multiplayer options embarrassingly fail to justify the miniscule price tag. Swerve to avoid.
  6. A competent arcade racer, with a decent feel to the controls, powerslides and other fancy moves, and a reasonable amount of entertainment. It's not an A-list game by any means, but the price tag makes that perfectly clear.
  7. There is really no need to get this game at all unless you are a massive fan of Mustangs but even then, there are better games out there that feature these classic V8 powered muscle machines and do everything better than what's on offer here.
