5.0 out of 5 stars Probably Four and a Half Stars........
I'd been waiting for a game like this to come to Vita, this is right up my street. To be honest my review is similar to some of those for the big consoles.

I'd been waiting for a game like this to come to Vita, this is right up my street. To be honest my review is similar to some of those for the big consoles. You either like this type of game or not, it's turn based war, set on the charge to Berlin. You pick individual soldiers or units for each mission, then you move them in short bounds and fire, The distance covered and range of the weapons depend on the unit. As you complete missions you earn prestige points, which can be used to heal units or buy bigger and better troops, vehicles or support units like artillery or planes. Your troops earn medals and gain experience as the missions go by and as result they become better. You can even bring in Allied soldiers etc, the "UK paras" are tough as.

The missions are varied, some involve stealth, some sabotage, some you have to protect individuals and some you just have to stay alive! You can play the missions on different levels of difficulty and replay them as you see fit. You learn to vary the troops you take with you to suit the mission and you soon get favourites. A balanced approach works well, some troops like paras are good as shock troops, but you can have snipers, bazooka troops, first aiders etc. Some units are virtually ineffectual on some missions. Skill points mean you can change the fighting characteristics of your units. You can make them better at attacking, defending or improve logistics/supplies so your units can fight for longer.

Some reviewers say the game is unrealistic, they may have a point, but it is fun as a result. I'd knock half a star for the game controls. They are not fully explained, fiddly and take some getting used to. I spent most of the first mission wondering how to fire back at the angry German lads. I'm glad i persevered though, the game is really good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Game, 31 Aug. 2013

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: History Legends of War (Playstation Vita) (Video Game)
Firstly I would like to say this is a very good game. Basically in this game, you control a variety of American and Allied units against German units. This includes a range of tanks, armored cars, infantry units, artillery and aircraft. The game used turn based strategy similar to End War. You move your units, and make any attacks you wish then the AI makes its move.

Length Of Game: This is quite a long game and took me about a week to play (1-2 hours a day). There are 21 missions each taking at least half an hour to play. Plus you will loose on some on some missions the first time you try making it take longer.
Graphics: This game had good graphics. The detail of both the battlefield and the units was very good.
Difficulty: This game was hard enough that it wasn't "too easy" however easy enough that it wasn't stressful.

My only criticism was what I thought was a little bit of a disappointing ending. You play the whole game fighting your way towards Germany but then when you finally get near that is the end of the game. I would of liked to control my units in the final battles to take the city. However thats a minor thing, and overall this is a really good game. If you like war games or strategy then this really is for you. Worth a try, I think.

Overall 4/5 stars for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legends??, 27 Jun. 2013

I really love strategy games, but as the Vita goes there aren't that many. I stumbled across this game on Amazon and purchased it. Amazing game. Very intense gaming experience. A lot of planning and trial and error is required to figure the game mechanics out, but loads of fun. It's a big game as well with plenty of re playability. Having a different mix of soldier types for different missions. You are graded on your performance as well. Your soldiers actually gain experience as well, and the game keeps a record of how they have performed across the missions. The sound and graphics are surprisingly good. The price is a bit too high for me, but still; five stars.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, 29 Jan. 2014

Not a bad game but i feel it didn't warrant the price paid, I think a version of GTA for the Psvita would be a move in the right direction.
