Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is just pure fun. You can have twice more fun playing this than WWE12. Yes the create a wrestler might not be as polished graphicly than the legends themselves. But who cares?. Because the graphics are awsome with the legends and the in ring action.

This game is just amazing!. :)

Trust me it is just to fun!

PS-You can play it on your XBOX360 :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Showdown and out! 11 Jan 2009
By Rob
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It is sadly no real surprise that Aklaim lasted only marginally longer than the hype around this game. Other reviews on Amazon some up this game well enough but are very much from one or other point of view.

In reality this is no great game, it is quite buggy (ok very buggy), a bit slow and quite straight forward to master. The initial challenge the game offers quickly disappear leaving you to be able to pretty much beat the hell out of however you want, as whoever you want.

In the last statement lies this games saving grace, if like me you grew up watching what was then WWF and WCW and miss the likes of the British Bulldog, Bret Hart and The Ulimate Warrior and co - then you will love this game because it brings together pretty much everyone you could want on one title. At the time wrestling games on the Mega Drive right through to the Gameboy really offered nothing you could see describe as authentic to the stars of the time. With Showdown you can choose not only your wrestler but also a choice of costumes, often from various times in their career. Finishing moves are all captured here too but are performed by simply pressing one button as your opponent is on the way out and need no practice to master. You've then got a few venues, including Wembley Stadium amongst others which all add to the spectacle.

The match types are a nice feature, ladders, tables and cages are all available but don't change the gameplay much. You can use weapons too but as stated earlier the game is easy enough to win handsomely with or without them.

If you want a good wrestling game then there are plenty better than this, but if it is a rather nostalgic look back at the glory that was the wrestling of the 80's and 90's then this will be the title for you. More on offer than any other 'Legends' title, and with no more Aklaim this will be the last of the series so we sadly can wait for nothing better.

Verified Purchase
Not in the same league as the THQ WWE games but if you watched wrestling in the 80's you will want to play this almost every wrestling star of the 70's and 80,s is here to play Hogan,Savage,Ultimate Warrior and more no WWE game has had as many Legends in one game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game , even today a fine alternative !! 6 Mar 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
when i bought this game on ps2 in 2004 i was so excited about playing it and yes it turned out to be amazing from an old school fans point of view the nostalgia was something speical , the game modes wernt great but the cast of characters where immense and costume selections brilliant along with ability to create others great legends in a super creation mode , presentation is very retro which i love and the game has all the famous stadiums and arenas that played a big part in the glory years from the small settings of memphis wrestling to the big time of the silverdome , the logos from famous wwf events are captured in style but not spelling as eg. it could be showdown in style of wrestlemania , there are a few notable wrestlers missing but can easily be made in create a legend mode, gsmeplay wise the game is a bit slow but that kind of helps capture a bit of reality of that time , its a love or hate game really eg. if your a hardcore gamer but not that big into wrestling just a casual fan you will probably hate this but if you are a old school wrestling fan and love the games youll love this one, i still play it as a nice alternative to wwe legends , wwe all stars and wwe 12 , it does stand the test of time !!
