The graphics are better than the SVR series but the controls ain't.The controls are kinda hard but you'll get used to it when you play it more often
Just picked it up at a bargain price, not bad at all. I don't get why people say either this or SvR are the best wrestling games out there. Ever heard of Kings of Colloseum? Or better yet, Fire Pro Wrestling? I know they're Japanese and a majority of you can't play them due to the region lock, but it's completely worth modding your PS2 to play them. Well Fire Pro Returns which is AMAZING is in U.S stores and very cheap. But KoC is worth modding your PS2 to play, get rid of the region lock, get a copy of KoC off ebay, and be amazed. Games like this and SvR will make you laugh at how terrible they are compared to those. You'd think on 360/PS3, they'd have the technology to make the best wrestling game ever, yet the japanese ones on PS2 are still better, EVEN THE ONE THAT HAS 2D GRAPHICS!! Just goes to show you graphics don't make a game.
played this game before, its just horrible and I figured it would be since midway made it lol but I still gave it a shot anyway
Nice furious analog stick waggling Chris! Been there done that with a game before. This one still looks fun though. Great review keep them coming.
ONLY a NOOB would 'miss' the turnbuckle...and i dont see how a MISSED legdrop a negative thing? u should have known better then to TRY and be gretty by getting an extra 'attack' inthere!! iMPACT is FUN, but the PIN KICKOUT and STUN Recovery need IMPROVEMENT!! but TNA still brings that FUN FACTOR!!
What the reviewer said about the problem where the wrestler thinking the opponent is still on the ground while hes getting up -- its no surprise. Im pretty sure about 90% of WWE games have this same freakin issue (Wrestlemania X8 and XXI are some examples of this annoying problem)
This game would be alot better if they released it at a discount price. Who wants to pay $60 for an untested wrestling game? Even $40 for the PS2 version is expensive.
hmmmm. I dunno. Graphics don't make a game ppl. Hey I know Booker T and Kurt Angle, and Sting. Everyone else... Just a blob of muscle, fat, and lame outfits. Sorry TNA... No Go.
As much as I HATE TNA, this game looks awesome. Hey, it's actually more realistic in game than it is in the actual show! now if WWE and TNA would just fuse...
This game kind of reminds me of the very first wrestling game from WWE on the XBOX. Does anyone out there remember how terrible that game was?
Hopefully they'll bring a demo out soon, at this point to much mix reactions for me to spen $60 for it. Besides I still like the smackdown games and dont think this games grappeling system can compare. Looks o.k. but I think its still got a ways to go, demo would make me more interested.
No wrestling game to date has beaten WWF No Mercy on N64 in terms of balanced gameplay and sheer fun. Those were the days...
Not sure wither to buy it or not do not usually take much interest in fighting games even though I enjoy them but this looks really fun!
nice, im liking it...i dont watch my wrestling this days but this game looks good and come on any game that has sting in it it has to be good. :)
no way dis game can take on any of the WWE games it jus cant an it WONT...WWE jus needs 1 more gg like they did bak with the earlier ps2 games to take out tna gaming franchise
a proper review, where yoy really get the impression he's actually spent time with the game and not just read whats on the back of the box. always good when they give good examples of flaws and show them
