Gamer 2.0 writes: "For every tame, vapid game, there are a dozen fantastic examples of just why our hobby is held so sacred. In playing Legendary, you'll realize just how good other first-person shooters (FPS) are, and just how much we take for granted. We've become used to tight controls honed to perfection, sumptuous visuals and, admittedly, a smattering of clichés, but while Legendary achieves the latter, it fails to perfect the most rudimentary of genre mechanics.
The screenshots tell a tale. This is a first-person shooter with guns and mystical creatures, but it's a game with guns and mystical creatures done badly. Playing as Charles Deckard, you'll trudge through a plodding plot simultaneously battling the broken controls and cursing the staged nature of the game. Monsters are onset by obvious trigger points, set-pieces are elaborate yet underwhelming and the action fails to excite, entice or endear."
