    im gutted there is no macho man, the mountie, warlord, papa shango, the smoking guns, farooq, adam bomb, nailz, sid justice, marty jannetty!...surely there will be some good DLC though?

    also in the videos some of the wrestlers dont have proper music or entrances?? they just come down on a mini ring?? why is that?

    I'm sure they'll add some more to the roster via DLC. They did it with Smackdown vs Raw 2009.

    I think the lack of entrance music is that some of them didn't have music in those days. Also may be down to licensing

    Hi, work firewall means I can't read the story - I take it this is for PS3 as well (as the title only mentions EggBox360)?

    but even if they just used ANY suitable music and gave them a bit of an entrance that would be better than just wheeling them down to the ring in silence on a weird pedastool?

    If this has the warriors entrance music it will be worth £30 just for that!!

    You are not that old are you!?

    The 'mini-ring' was used for one Wrestlemania (either 3 or 4 I think) and like has been said before, some wrestlers didnt have theme music (usually heels). Some had their own and some even had generic WWF music.

    Another nostalgic element and I hope they keep it in - adds to the atmosphere...

    I'm soooo excited about the demo tomorrow.

    I stopped watching wrestling about 6 years ago because it really was going down hill but recently i have an addiction to watching matches from the 90's on youtube.

    I would have liked a few extras like Doink the Clown

    Few more names for the list, I have been freeze-framing the IGN vids :D

    Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
    Animal
    Arn Anderson
    Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart
    Big Boss Man
    Hawk
    Honky Tonk Man
    Hunter Hearst-Hemsley

    Nice to see BBM and Honky Tonk, heres hoping that Macho Man Randy Savage (Owwww Yeah!), IRS and The Mountie made it too.

    Couple of things I'm wishing for to make this game truely "Legendary" :

    Cheesy but, classic pre-match ramblings; think Paul Bearer addressing "The Ultimate Warrior" on behalf of The Undertaker.

    and some classic tag-teams, think Legion of Doom, Natural Disasters, Bushwhackers, now that would be sweet.

    Lots of scope regards the DLC too, as long as its reasonably priced, maybe 99p per extra character?

    Full list has been given and Macho Man didn't make it. :(

    I'm surprised Mick Foley didn't make it either

    Maybe but there's also a chance that wwe doesn't have the rights to some superstars and that may be why they're not included

    Hmmm maybe, be a shame if thats the case.

    Well at least Ravashing Rick Rude made the cut, I remember playing as him on the NES (How long ago was that!)

    Rude awakening here we come.

    Awesome. Will be downloading the demo tonight. Hogan - Andre with a different outcome maybe. I heard there is a mode where you can be The Rock or Stone Cold on the demo too. Is the game out on the 20th or 27th March?
    Some missing legends would have been added if I had my way - maybe they'll do some DLC or add-ons at a later date??

    Bob Backlund, The Bushwhackers, The Quebecers (or Mountie), Adrian Adonis, Hillbilly Jim, Marty Jannetty (to make up The Rockers anyway). On a sadder note, gutted Owen Hart or Eddie Guerrero are not there.

    They are from older wrestlemania's. They used to come to the ring on little carts that looked like mini-rings. Have a look at Wrestlemania 6 to see Andre dwarf his cart. Good stuff. Hope the entrance music is good as the entrances look really authentic.

    Had a bash and it's pretty good. Controls are really hard to start with especially as i don't play the smackdown games.

    Entrances are cool but i hope there's an option to turn off the carts in the full game.

    I need to learn to run and do turnbucke moves as i am very repetitive ATM:D

    Manager interference is cool as are the old clips which build up to a match.

    I'll keep playing and if i really get used to the controls then this is a must buy for me :smashin:

    Just played the demo and I thought it was pretty good, bit tricky to get used to the controls etc but I reckon that will come together. With the list of playable characters this is a deffo purchase for me:D

    just had a play myself and the controls arent as fluid as the other wwe games. they are a tad slow and cumbersome in comparison and building up momentum takes time.

    its cool to see the cut scenes and charactors but it looks like it is gonna be a bit of a let down gameplay wise :thumbsdow

    After a few more plays I think it all works quite well. Haven't really played a wrestling game since royal rumble on the SNES tho so cant really compare it to the more recent games. Just having all the legends in is probably enough to make it a deffo purchase for me.

    I quite like the fact it's not another Smackdown clone. Smackdown was great 5 years ago (think Here Comes The Pain) but has grown stale over the last couple of years.

    Legends feels old-school, arcadey and fun and with a great roster confirmed I'm really looking forward to it :thumbsup:

    Online functionality:
    Challenge players from around the world to matches on the biggest stages in WWE history.........from the official site.

    Couldn't find much more info about the online tho. Online Royal Rumble would probably be the best thing in the world........ever

    It is a good demo.

    Just a shame all I can do is punch - punch - punch - knockdown. Repeat ad infinitum.

    Definitely interested though.

    I think the carts entrance on the demo is because you are playing Wrestlemania 3 and that was how they originally entered. I suppose if you are playing Rock v Austin it will mimic the entrances from that particular Wrestlemania.

    Im looking forward to seeing the warriors entrance and of course L.O.D - Aaarrrrrrrhhhhhh wwwhhhhhaaaaaatttt aaaaaa rrruuusssshshhhhhhhhhh

    Gutted there is no Demolition or Macho Man :thumbsdow

    Hopefully more will be added as DLC. Would happily pay for extra legends
