PSX Extreme writes: "The WWE franchise has been in good hands with THQ over the past nine years, now. Unlike Acclaim, who quickly let their WWF games go to the crapper, THQ's consistency and quality with the SmackDown franchise has been surprisingly good (with the exception of last year's broken WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2008). Now, THQ looks to be borrowing a page from the, now defunct, book of Acclaim, by releasing a Legends game. Except, unlike Acclaim's Legend of Wrestling, this WWE branded game is actually brimming with potential.
For starters, you have a game backed by a proper license, allowing THQ to utilize every bit of WWE's assets with ease. In total, 40 of the WWE's greatest superstars and managers have been virtually cast for this Legends game, including Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Yokozuna, The Undertaker, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Jerry Lawler, Ted Dibiase, Mr. Perfect, and many more."
