The controls are different they where better the old way all the had to do is in prove the graphics that's its just a button masher and You can sit there and try to counter all day long hitting the buttons at the correct time but it still will not counter. Even on the easy setting it is still very difficult to play. Why put that on there when it doesn't work? Was looking forward to playing this title due to the enjoyment from the past games. Played it twice and it is already back in the mailbox. Very disappointed in this game. Would not even recommend renting, just don't waste your time.
I didn't like it. haven't played a wrestling game since Smack down vs Raw so I'm not that good at it. I have to say for new users the game is hard, when playing the Road to Wrestle Mania. I had a hard time so I said forget it and send it back.
