Legends of Wrestling is a professional wrestling video game based on the greatest wrestlers of all time, from WWF/WWE, NWA, WCW, ECW and various independent promotions. It was developed and produced by Acclaim. It was released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2, then in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube and Xbox.


Production and advertising

Hulk Hogan was the spokesperson for the game.


The game was met with average to very mixed reception. GameRankings and Metacritic gave it a score of 65.93% and 65 out of 100 for the Xbox version; 58.53% and 55 out of 100 for the PlayStation 2 version; and 52.84% and 50 out of 100 for the GameCube version.

The Cincinnati Enquirer gave the PS2 version a score of four stars out of five and said that its characters "have an exaggerated action-figure look, but they move smoothly and have a robust collection of moves." However, Playboy gave the same version a score of 60% and said, "Unless you're desperate to see Captain Lou Albano in action again (and who isn't?), scant reason for a purchase presents itself. Casual wrestling fans can pass." BBC Sport gave said version a score of 56%, stating: "When you press a button to pull off a move there's far too long a wait for any action, and the game actually builds up a queue which can mean you are waiting for moves to happen before you can continue."
