Reviews were fairly poor from what I can tell.

Replace "fairly" with "almost unbelievably" and you'd have it right. This game got some of the lowest scores all year.

2gb eats up my bandwidth for ....keyboard drivers. I'm all for not trusting reviews completely but when the game gets 30%s across numerous sites I think it's time to call it a stinker.

30-ish is pretty low, but most of the complaints were based around "just another standard FPS." The last game I know of that got bashed hard for that same reason was Quake 4, and I loved Quake 4.

That said, their last game was Turning Point, and that game SUCKED. A lot.

Fairly standard game play. Looks good though. The Black order is very weak, werewolves not too bad. just felt like very standard "Hey! here's a monster, shoot it!" LOL

1680x1050 All maxed, I'll have to play with the ATI ccc for best AA.

Looks like a decent generic shooter. Reminds me of Jericho.

Thanks for the actual screens grey!! :thumbsup: (instead of some people's whining about how the game is just bad without any supporting details or screenshots).
anyway it looks UE3'ish .. i'll try it once i have some free time.

And as such, I'll be waiting for a GoGamer madness sale or an appearance in the Target clearance bin before buying it.

What is it with all UE3.0 engine games and having this wierd vaseline wash all over everything. I can't pinpoint what it actually is exactly, but every game has the exact same look...

Kind of blur filter to cover the poor LOD, but AFAIK this game is not UE3 based. but from these screens it its looks SO much like it.

It deserves the low ratings it got. Pretty bad game. Poor weapon sounds, poor graphics, bad voice acting and so-so gameplay. Seems it could get very repetitive, very quick.

I just wanted the demo to end...lol.

Might pick this up when it hits the $20 bin but will probably wait till it hits the $6 bargain bin.

My $.02

I actually liked it... not $50 worth, that's crazy, but I did like it and must say a rating of 3 or 4 for the game is ridiculous.

Those screens don't do it justice either, at times I think it's actually very, very good looking at max "very high" settings.

I'll buy it for sub-$30... maybe $20.

Save yourself some time, this crap ain't even worth D/L
Total POS, thats what it is!

It has that same oddly ugly, murky look to the graphics as Unreal Engine 3 games like Gears of War do, but the gameplay reminds me more of TimeShift. I thought the monsters weren't bad but there's nothing in this demo that would make me want to buy the full game.

No, they really don't. If graphics were the only thing that sold games, I'd have this in a heartbeat.

adv1 - Yep, this does feel very similar to Timeshift.

Please people, comparing the gameplay in Legendary with Timeshift is an insult to gaming!

Legendary reminds me more of Blacksite in terms of gameplay and graphics. Judging from the demo, Blacksite is the better game.

Finally, the look of the Unreal Engine doesnīt appeal to me.

Although i havent played Blacksite, i agree Legendary looks so much like it.

Legendary is a lot better than Blacksite. I bought Blacksite for $20 and regret it, never played past the first level... Legendary, based on the demo, is a lot more fun, looks a LOT better, and is much smoother to play, as well as having no technical glitches and issues, which Blacksite was full of.

I agree Timeshift is a better game than both, though. Very underrated, Timeshift is.

I have to disagree with you here sir. I also bought Blacksite and the first level was awful, agreed. But you should have continued because the game gets pretty good after that. I donīt judge Legendary yet, but based on the demo itīs not something i would pay full price for. Maybe a bargain bin game for me.

Timeshift is way above both these titles imo. AAA if you ask me :)
