Hidden Dragon: Legend
Top Critic Average
Great game all around. The combat is satisfying, the upgrades are cool, and the wuxia elements that make the genre fun are all present. Definitely recommended for fans of platforming beat ’em up games.
Hidden Dragon isn't terrible, but it's sorely stuck not one, but two generations in the past. The sidescroller is by no means dead, yet those working in this shrinking subgenre are either emulating its most celebrated champions or pushing the boundaries with something new and inventive. Hidden Dragon does neither, nor does it have the visual oomph that can often help overlook a game's shortcomings.
The storytelling is lackluster and it manages to make combat, what should be the core of an action game, into something that toes the line between tedious and unfair.
Irritation, frustration, and maybe boredom will begin to seep in after the initial fun, making this platforming adventure less than legendary.
Hidden Dragon: Legend has a lot of technical and perfomance issues. Combined with its bad writing, it is going to be a bad experience for any player. The game needs a lot of fixes that could come with an update patch. So, with that in mind, you have been warned.

Hidden Dragon Legend tries to do more than it can truly do. The combat system is deep but with too many problems, many game sections are frustrating and the game has overall bad animations.

There's an alright game somewhere here as the setting is well done just like the enemy designs, but it isn't presented in a way that showcases its potential.
There are way worse games out there, though, and while I'd never personally recommend Hidden Dragon Legend to anyone, if you like the setting, style and the sound of it and you've got money to burn, you might as well give it a go, I guess.
In general it's a mediocre game, with a gameplay that only has some good moments. Although the combat system can hook a little, the inconsequential phases of platforms and repetitive clashes will cause you to lose patience before exceeding half of their levels.
