Now I haven't watched wrestling in YEARS, have probably seen maybe 1 match with new superstars like John Cena, and that was by accident. I've never heard of Kahli or any of that group, and the last time I can remember seeing Batista he was Ric Flairs body guard or somethin.
So, now that you know I'm not a guy that is just going to blindly love a game cause I'm a wrestling fan let me move along to the game.
The first day it came out I picked it up and my poor Gears of War hasn't been picked back up since, and poor ol Call of Duty 3 will be shelved for a while when Gamefly gets it to me (hey I couldn't buy them ALL). This game to me has anything and everything I could want with an online wrestling game. I played wrestling games on the Nintendo 64 til my thumbs wanted to bleed, but I haven't played any since hardly. I swore when one came out with online play I would buy it. Then some titles came out, and the online selection was just a complete joke.. This year, things are very very different.
Online there are more options for matches than I will be able to remember to list, but just a few online options (max 4 players). TLC, Burried Alive, Steel Cage (climb out or pin and submit), Heck in a Cell, Tables, Hardcore, Battle Royal (over the rope or pin and submit), Submission and super submission, and classic 15 minute iron man. Almost all of these matches can be fought in either single, single with 1 or 2 managers, Triple threats, Normal tag, Tornado tag and fatal 4-ways.
The create screens are awesome, any kind, create a character is sweet (i'm working on maxing out a 2nd char). Create a title is fun to defend online (rematches are nice if you lose your belt and have a nice opponet lol)
I don't like that when you go into ranked title matches on live you have to load all your belts, if game freezes while they loaded on xbox, by by belts. I've lost a lot of belts, some with several wins, it hurts, but it's still fun.
I can't say any thing bad about the game. But i can't say anything good either. let's just say i was looking for something alot different and this wasn't it. the 360 has the speed and the power to really push the games but this game didn't make the cut. i'm looking for a real fighting game. one that is fast and looks good and makes every one that come over drop there jaws when that see it. and smack down 07 is not that game.. unless your really into wrestling don't by this game
Okay i agree with everything that everyone else is saying about this game game the graphics are amazing, a little glitch like u see there hands going through there bodies but that's not a big deal also I don't like that u cant add your own music into the game. It has a good sound track of songs but i don't want to hear the same songs every time i play. The create modes are awesome the ring entrances are great Also i have noticed when ever you do a season there are always people that want to screw u out of your chances of getting the title or keeping it but that is how it is in real life. 1 more bad thing about this game is that u can have full momentum and they will have like none and all it takes is 1 reversal move and they strike u down to the ground and just beet every inch of your body out and u sit there just hitting the buttons trying to get up but when u do get up they just drop u back down LOL. Another thing if some one could tell me about the downloadable content are we going to be able to download new superstars and attire? In closing i do believe that this is the best wrestling game out ever and i cant wait for 2007 so if you love the wwe and own a 360 or ps2 go buy or rent this game u will not be disappointed!!!!!
