"According to Fox, the project will center on a military hero who encounters a troubled return to the U.S., compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil."
I am a big fan of 24 from the very beginning. Season 1 and 2 are still the best for me (meaning lesser plot holes and suspension of disbelief). From there the show kept repeating itself and became quite generic, even so generic that you can effortlessly predict the twists coming. And yet I continued watching and enjoying - the characters were solid, the pace was good and all in all I got what I wanted and what I enjoyed (just not so much as the the first season which is normal).
24: Legacy is no different - it follows the same formula, it doesn't offer anything new but also it does not take away what we need in 24 - characters and pacing. Which is alright for me - I don't expect anything groundbreaking anyway. Something that is bugging me a little - since this will be aimed at hardcore fans I just would like to see more references towards the old series (so far we got just one for Edgar Stiles and waiting for Tony Almeida to appear).
The new lead is quite alright, also I never thought that 24 should end with Kiefer (don't get me wrong he was born to play this role) so I am not taking out any points for him missing.
To conclude: it is the same old done according to the standards. Nothing more, nothing less.
