Game review: Showdown

Smooth character animations and great looking signature moves highlight this fun, old school assembly of pro wrestling's larger-than-life icons. There's nothing like throwing a big Hogan leg drop on Andre the Giant in the Classic Match Mode which recreates some of the best matches in history. Legends is an improvement on the wrestling titles of the past - but still not perfect and some minor glitches do abound.

Overall, unless you're a hardcore fan of the '70s and '80s ring scene, I'd opt to rent this one before shelling out the 50 bucks.
