So, this weekend we decided to play a game called Legend, and I have to say that it is an amazing game. It is as sidescroller beat-em-up game and I love it.
First off, I have to mention the graphics, they’re really good in this game. In my mind, it is one of the best looking games for the SNES. I really love the feeling and the art style. The design and feeling really helps the game to stand out from other games in this genre.
Secondly, I love the music. The music really compliments the game. From the level music to the boss themes. It is also absolutely one of the best soundtracks to SNES.
Gameplay wise, the style is medieval with swords and armors rather than guys on dirty back alleys, for example. It’s a pretty standard beat-em-up game really, with an average difficulty. You got your specials that take out the entire screen, you can pick up items, treasures and you kick some serious ass. You collect the treasures to gain a higher score, which can be fun if your playing co-op for example. Playing this with two characters is really the way to go, in my opinion.
The bosses can get pretty hard at times, but thanks to the boss designs it’s never really frustrating, as it just feels cool to face them. One of the most memorable bosses in this game is one of the last ones, when you’re fighting a huge, furry monster-like thing. The both of you are on a piece of stone that comes crashing down to certain death. That boss fight is intense, especially with two players!
All in all, the game is really rememberable and if you’re looking for a great feel in a beat-em-up for SNES, then look no further. This is as good as it’s gonna get.
