Crush! Frag! Destroy! Review: Tournament of Legends

CFD!'s Scott Thompson delves into High Voltage Software's most recent offering on Wii:

"Fighting games have always puzzled me. I’ve played a great deal of them throughout my life, and while the best are fun for a few hours, I’ve never had one sustain my interest for long. Of course, I am probably in the minority there, as games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter II were all the rage back in elementary school. Though they laid dormant for the past generation, fighting games have again entered the spotlight, thanks in part to games like Street Fighter IV, BlazBlue, and the upcoming Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Of course, the 1990s were plagued with cheap, innovation-less attempts to cash-in on the success of the genre, so it could stand to reason that once these types of games again resurface then the genre will truly be back.

"Tournament of Legends may just be the sign of that revival."

Mechanically it sounds interesting, but those one-liners may be a bit too much for me.

Just sold my Wii, but considering how much I'm enjoying Swords & Shields on the PlayStation Move, I don't think I'm missing out on much.

Never been a fighting game fan, but this seems worth a look.

I honestly miss a lot of those cheesy fighters from the 16-32bit era. Eternal Champions stands out as one that didn't get the love it deserved. And soooo many terribad fighting games on PS1... ahhh memories. :)

This reminds me of them. I might consider picking it up once it hits the clearance bin.
