Legendary: The Box – New Trailer

By John Walker on November 28th, 2007 at 9:26 pm.

There’s a brand new trailer out for the superbly daftly named Legendary: The Box. And it goes a little something like this:


Thanks Gametra… er, GamersHell.

What’s possibly most exciting about Spark Unlimited’s game is that it looks to be just a straight shooter. No rewinding time, no magical suit, no sentient backpack. It’s just a guy with a gun, shooting at stuff. Really cool looking stuff, as art thief Charles Deckard accidentally opens Pandora’s Box, and unleashes all the evils of mythology into the world. Just look at the big twisted metal monster!

    I think I saw a hand that was on fire. You know the type. The “I can shoot fireballs from my hands” type. :(

  2. Duncan says:

    How could “Legendary: The Box” be anything other than a video game?

  3. T-B0N3 says:

    “some boxes should never be opened” that has gotta be the lamest sentence i heard this year. :)

    and did anyone thought aswell this was somekind of portal related joke ? (evil weighted companion cube anyone? :p )

  4. Matt Dovey says:

    That opening tagline undoubtedly has reviewers the world over rubbing their hands in glee at the thought of quoting it in negative reviews. I’m sure that should be the first rule of advertising: never use a line people can use against you.

    That clutched hand did look mightily Bioshock inspired, as well, whilst the rest of the game looked mightily uninspired, oh ho ho ho.

    Apart from concrete Transformer boy at the end. He looked awesome.

  5. Masked Dave says:

    Porno title, clearly.

  6. Brog says:

    spinning sky vortex: half life 2 much?

  7. Brant says:

    Wow, the start-to-crate is zero, and so far I’ve only seen the title.

    Not a big deal. After Pandora got her hands on it, it was empty anyway.

    Randomly, I really hope the disc has ‘LEGENDARY: THE DVD’ written on it.

  9. Mo says:

    Looks awesome! Seriously!

    The trailer totally reminded me of an OTT version of Doom, or Serious Sam. A good thing, IMO.

  10. Son Of Slam says:

    Nice Wilhelm scream in there.

  11. Solario says:

    But I thought Pandora’s Box was actually a jar? And isn’t the point of it, that everything bad, in the box, was released by Pandora except Hope? So wouldn’t the only thing on the bottom of it be Hope?

    Bah humbug.

    Hopefully it’ll be fun at least.

  12. Richard says:

    Nope, she let Hope out too. Probably on the grounds that “what more could go wrong…”

  13. Faust says:

    From what I’ve read about the game your only ‘power’ is that you get health from dead enemies, so don’t be expecting Bioshock in New York.

  14. JakethePirate says:

    I was always taught that the point of the myth was that hope is bad too because it makes people think they have a change when, in reality, life is futile.

    Now that I think about it, my education should have depressed me farm ore than it did.

    Whenever I hear about this kind of game I always wonder how the developers tell their families that the reason they’re working so late that r for Legendary: The Box is nearing release.

    SURREPTITIOUSLY: THE DENTIST
    my new flight sim

  16. Roflgoat says:

    Great premise, looks like it’s not being done too well. Everything just doesn’t look that good. The muzzle flares, what gun textures?, the enemies look bad, not so epic cinematic which should be epic, etc.

  17. endorphine says:

    Spinning vortex on top of a citadel + aliens… Half-Life 2 ?

  18. The_B says:

    Wait, wasn’t Pandora’s Box a puzzle game by Microsoft?

    ¬___¬

    (I’m sorry, I’ll leave now, chasing the tumbleweed)

  19. Flint says:

    For some reason I’m getting the vibe that the red thing the guy absorbs in his hand is the Hope.

    Imagine the corny taglines! “Hope walks in him” etc.

  20. Mike says:

    19 posts and no one said to said: Worst. Title. Ever.

  21. Babs says:

    Seriously, what is the point of of the ‘Legendary:’ bit? Are they planning some sort of container-related saga with sequels like ‘Legendary: The Jar’ and ‘Legendary: The Closet’?

  22. Andrew says:

    I thought “SURREPTITIOUSLY: THE DENTIST” came pretty close to critiquing the title, Mike.

    And I love that title, incidentally. Well done that man.

  23. Bobsy says:

    I especially like how the city’s being torn apart in that trailer. Very fancy. Also kinda puts me in mind of that JJ Abrams film with the as-yet unseen giant monster. That is to say, the bit with the monster reminds me of the film with the monster. I bet that’s what it looks like anyway.

    Also, yes Mr B, there was a puzzle game called Pandora’s Box. It was shit, and made people make that funny growling sound in the back of their throat.

  24. ZymeAddict says:

    Lol. I love how they used the Wilhelm scream when that dude gets thrown off the side of that building.
