Run-of-the-mill shooter; lots of blood and gore.

it has a little bit of the brutal content that game was sooooooooooo awsome. but it does have some swearing like an a word p word b word and a d word. if that game would be movie that would be rated pg-13 for intense sequenes of violence and mild language. that game should be rated T for teen for blood and gore and mild language and violence

I can't really say its bad.

Legendary is a pretty bad game, With a bad story and its really bad graphics. To be honest, Its not really that violent. The bad graphics make it look more like the red paint I'd have in my bedroom. There isn't really gore. If you wanna see gore play Dragon Age: Origins. Its a stupid game too and I see more realistic blood in fish and chips....a.k.a ketchup :) Its not really as bad as anyone here says. Its so not cool.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Legendary is average in just about every way a game can be. Its cookie cutter settings and familiar enemies are generally plain and lackluster, but not quite to the point of being ugly. The action, which has players shooting, hacking, and healing all in roughly equal measure, is competent but utterly conventional. And its narrative contains interesting concepts and characters that, unfortunately, are never fully explained or developed.

Then there are all of the little annoyances. Fallen debris creates narrow, utterly contrived paths through each environment. You can jump long and far, but seemingly only a couple of inches from the ground, which means huge gaps can be cleared easily but that you can't hop over, say, a fallen 10-inch wide column. And there are many places in which there is no end to enemies, which can prove enormously frustrating when trying to concentrate and solve one of the game's many environmental puzzles. Simply put, there are enough excellent first-person shooters vying for the dollars of mature gamers that it makes little sense to settle for a inferior experience like Legendary.
