Closing comments by IGN's Matt Casamassina:
"Nintendo fans may find it hard to go from Soulcalibur II complete with a playable version of Link to a re-imagined sequel that is neither a fighter nor a visual stunner. Namco has been adamant that Legends was designed from the ground up for Wii, but if that's the case, the developer really wasn't very inventive about the best ways to use Nintendo's console - it merely replaced buttons with waggle. The end result is not a bad one, but it's not particularly good either. It's Soulcalibur if it were a repetitive hack-and-slash endeavor without many of the fighters that fans adore. Die-hards may be compelled to play for the unlockables, but if you've never played Soulcalibur before, don't start now."
Overall score: 6/10
