Legendary from Spark Unlimited is very far from legendary in any way. It has a badly written and very foreseeable plot, linear game-play and terrible terrible level design. Yet, when it all comes together, it becomes a quit fun and enjoyable game. It's like watching a Judge Dredd movie. It's so bad it's good. If you have seen "The Disaster Artist", then you know exactly what makes this game fun to play.

*Note for Windows 10 "Creators update" users:
The Windows 10 Creators update introduced a wide variety of problems for games, especially when using custom renders like ENB or ReShade. Fortunately this can be fixed in two simple steps (LINK)
*See number 4: Fixing the Creators "update"
If this doesn't work on your OS, try downloading the ReShade core files from here (LINK)
After installation, delete everything but the dll file, then copy everything but the dll file from HDR ReShade, so you get the right settings, but keep the dll from the official ReShade installation.
If this doesn't work either, then there is still something in the Windows 10 Creators Update that blocks the custom dll. If you are unable to fix it, you will have to uninstall the ReShade and play without.

That's it. Legendary is ready for launch

Legendary Game Info

Legendary (also known as "Legendary: The Box") is a first-person shooter from 2008, developed by Spark Unlimited and published by Gamecock Media Group in the US, and by Atari Europe in Europe. The game takes place in New York and later on London. The player is a professional thief named Charles, who is hired by an organization known as "The Black Order" to steal an artifact from a museum in New York City. The artifact is in fact nothing less but the Pandora's Box. Charles opens the box, which then unleashes a variety of mythological creatures, that starts attacking everything and everyone. The Box however also gives the player a strange energy that can be used in different ways. It is now up to the player and "the Council of 98" to clean up the mess, and make sure that the Black Order is stopped. The Black order seeks to control the creatures, and thereby conquer the world. The game is very similar to Area 51: Black Site. It has the same hopeless storyline, extremely bad level design and very poor scripting with lots of errors. It's one of those games that are so bad, it's good. The developer focus was clearly on atmosphere and a Hollywood-like story.
The game works as standard first-person games, and it uses the Unreal engine. You have several firearms that you collect throughout the game, and a fire axe as a melee which can't be unequipped. Aside from the axe, two other weapons can be carried at the same time, plus either grenades or molotovs. The player also has a PDA/Phone where he receives MMS messages with info or orders.

The game also has a multiplayer mode, which can be player with others online, and in private LAN. The multiplayer game is divided so "the Council of 98" is playing against "the Black Order". The game is about collecting as much of the strange energy as possible, and be the first team to successfully fuel a machine with the energy.
