Legends of Wrestling II for Game Boy Advance offers a choice of 40 wrestlers from yesteryear, including Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Sid Vicious, and Roddy Piper, who each possess the trademark moves that made them stars inside the ring. Exhibition, Career, and Tournament represent the three modes of play, with three difficulty settings available for players of varying skill levels. No matter which mode is selected, players will be able to compete in one-on-one bouts, tag team matches, and both three- and four-way "dances" until only one wrestler remains standing.
Exhibition offers a choice of wrestlers and four match types, while Career involves progressing through a series of matches determined by the computer until the character wins the coveted World Championship Belt. A manager provides optional tips between matches, while players choose their next venue using a map of the United States. Winning bouts earns the selected character popularity, represented by a percentage on the map screen, with title matches for each region opening up once popularity reaches 100 percent.
Tournament offers Versus or Tag Team competition with randomly generated brackets. Players must defeat each assigned wrestler, in order, to emerge victorious. In addition to the three modes of play, Legends of Wrestling II features a series of trading cards accessible from the menu screen. Players can view each wrestler's statistics and portrait, with locked profiles becoming available after completing Career mode. Battery backup automatically saves progress and unlocked wrestlers. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
