Legendary Release Date Finally Nailed Down

Spark Unlimited's on again, off again mythological shooter is finally, definitely coming out next week.

If you've been wondering what's going on with the wily release date for Legendary, the Pandora's Box-fueled mythological shooter made by Spark Unlimited and published by Gamecock, you're not alone. We've been watching Legendary's ship date slide back week by week since September, and it wasn't clear if development problems or perhaps Gamecock's acquisition by SouthPeak Interactive were at fault.

Wonder no longer: PR reps say Legendary will be out on the 360 and PS3 next Tuesday, Nov. 4th, with a PC version following on the 18th. So if you absolutely can't wait till Friday for Gears of War 2, here's another shooting option that will be available a little sooner.

Could NOT care less for this game!

Please prove me wrong Gamecock!

This title looks promising, but releasing the same week as GoW2 is retail suicide.  It looks like Gamecock is trying to sabotage this launch.  It's too bad too.  It was looking pretty promising.  Oh well.  i guess I'll wait for the review...

I'm really looking forward to reading the reviews on this one. Spark Unlimited has an awful track record  and as much as I'd like to believe otherwise, all signs point to this being par with their other recent efforts. After the massive disappointment of Call of Duty: Finest Hour, I went back and tried to play Medal of Honor: Frontline again and found it to be every bit as dismal. I don't think I can handle trying to play through Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Underground to see if they've aged any better; call it a hunch, but I bet the last decade hasn't been kind to them.

But hey, I'd absolutely love to be proven wrong. I get a kick out of seeing surprisingly good games come from studios with less-than-stellar track records.

I really like the idea of the game. The second I head the plot i thought "Now that sounds cool". But (I'm sure developers hate that word but here we go anyway) from what I've seen from the game play, It looks kinda plain. It doesn't look bad it just the game play equvilent of creamcrackers. You can eat them and be satisfied but with a little more time and a little more effort, you could tuck into a great big sandwich instead.

The premise is great but the actual gameplay looks mediocre and plain. Expected Rating: **.

This game seems really boring to me. Unless they make those mythical creatures body parts fly all over with gore n feathers n shit, it will prolly be silly PG style fps combat.

Same day as Resistance 2, so NOTHANKYOUSIR!

snoooz

What a horrible time frame for this to be released! Day-and-date with Resistance 2 for PS3 and a couple days before Gears 2 on 360. *shakes head*

Is there really any hype for this game?

Posted by Milkman

I'm going to give this one a big fat PASS. Gamecock has severely let me down with how many crappy games they have managed to release since they were formed.

Posted by Destroyeron

Only heard vague reports about this, but honestly I'd definitely look heavily into buying any game with a publisher called gamecock...

Posted by JoelTGM

This game is mediocre.

Edited by pause422

Looks completely mediocre, to downright bad. Also its developed by the same people who bought us "Turning point:Fall of Liberty" so.....no.

@Anders:  Ouch, that's a pretty scathing review.  Enough to make me drop this from my wish list. 

Posted by Anviltongue

@Anders:  Damn, the concept behind the whole game sounded interesting, too.  I jumped over to Metacritic after reading your link, and while not quite as brutal, the other reviewers seem to confirm the blahness.  A crying shame...

This one has no chance with so many awesome games that's already been released and with the ones that are coming up soon.

No thank you.

Posted by GioVANNI

Two stars.  Calling it here.

this game never even looked good from the start. Just looked bland. Reviews seems like my guess was correct
