A.V. Club: "For years, aliens, zombies, mutants, and other guys with guns have dominated the shooter genre. Now Legendary aims to show that fantasy can be just as scary as science fiction. You play as Deckard, an art thief unwittingly hired to open Pandora's Box and release mythological monsters on the modern world. The creatures you face aren't limited to Greek stories; the game draws from Jewish, Japanese, and Slavic legends. But when you're facing a colossal golem animated from the debris of ruined buildings and rampaging through the streets of New York, it's hard to care that it never appeared in Homer's writings."
