Digital conversions of traditional desktop gaming experiences have a tendency to be hit or miss. Legends, with its great storytelling but generally discouraging dice-rolling mechanics in particular, effectively straddles the line with its implementation. You can get glimpses of the classic experience in certain elements of play, the game’s text describing your adventure, in particular, is consistently compelling and well-written. The problem tends to be most everything else, from the pretty minimal use of artwork that may have helped add some flesh to the game’s bones to the dice rolls that feel like they favor your demise more often than not. For role playing fans this still may be a bit of fun, but for everyone else I’d take a hard look at video and the impressions of others before taking the plunge.
