This game isn't as bad as the reviews purport ladies and gents. The graphics are excellent, and as far as wrasslin games go, its actually solid. Sure it lacks a story and sometimes it feels like the developers just quit developing at some point, but it is an enjoyable hoot of a game. If you like ultra-kitschy Japanese insanity, then this is the game for you. Tongue-in-cheek ultra sexuality infused with a solid wrestling engine. Puritans need not boot this one up. Do they still exist? They might given some of the other skewed reviews you may have read by now.
Like most reviewers have said, if you can get past the 'girls in hardly no clothing' aspect of the game, then you're in for a decent game.
For 2006, the graphics are great! The girls and cut-scenes are really well done. The screen shots do it justice. The sound is just OK. There's not much acting in moans. The game has a great counter system. It's a 50/50 chance of counter if you land the 2 button combo system right. X-Rb is for an attacking combo where Y-Rb is for a grappling combo.
There's 2 negative aspects of this game which leaves it short. First is the lack of story. Second is the ENDLESS grind of trying to unlock stuff. I swear, it's horrid how long it takes to not only get a belt but to even unlock achievements takes forever. It becomes a grind and a lack of story only enhances this grind.
In the end, for a $5 used price on eBay, you might as well get it.
I've always wanted to check this game out. I expected it to be a TnA game with an envelope of wrestling masking it. It is much better than this though. There are many cool moves in this game and they look great. Many of them are even used in the Smackdown vs Raw games (the timing and animations are exact). I am having a blast with this and the TnA part is more of icing on the cake rather than the reason I am playing. You can find several real life wrestler's moves in this game, from Alex Shelley's Shellshock, Victoria's Widowmaker, and more which I cannot think of at this time. I am pleasantly impressed.
