So, I got Legendary a while ago in a Steam sale for I think around $2AU.
It looked interesting, a bit of puzzle solving mixed with first person action? YES THANKS.
So, I embark on my adventure and am dropped into this scene with a golden box in a museum. For some reason, I’m the kind of idiot that touches priceless artifacts (I didn’t want to be that guy, no body likes that guy…whatever) and get stabs in the palm for my troubles.
Apparently, stabbing me in the palm was a good thing…I think? and the action imbues me with some type of magical power.
So far so good. Long story short, you run into the streets when DOOF, everyone is floating in the air like amateur super men and the city is attacked by a bunch of over-zealous chickens.
It was around about now that it started getting really dull.
The game is very ‘locked into this exact path and no where else’, the action is boring, predictable and in-engaging.
The arrival of the first ‘you need to kill these’ creatures…
…was needless to say, a strange fo. As given that this was still the introduction – had no obvious method to avoid it’s attacks while just being expected to randomly shoot at it from a confined space in the rubble.
I was far more interesting in what Gordon ‘The Destroyer’ Ramsay was saying in ‘Kitchen Nightmares‘ to be entirely honest.
Or at least, watching the show playing on my second monitor was actually more engaging?
I’ll give the game a proper go I swear – but so far, it’s definitely a $2 game.
