I could make some funny comments on most of those screens, but I think i'll just let it go since it would be way to easy.

hmmm lol lots of these images are very suggestive, im not quite sure who buys these games, everyone I know thinks there pretty crap lol. Kids will love it I suppose.

I skipped the 07 version on purpose because:

1) It wasn't on PS3 and I had more important games to play.
2) It didn't sound like that much improvement.
3) I wanted to skip 07 so the jump from 06 - 08 will feel better.

BUT now I realise I skipped 07 for no reason as this looks to be the same.
All the gameplay elements they are showing in these screens were in 07 (i rented a few times).
Facial expressions, interactive staircase banging etc.

But it's the early days and as more gets shown, I hope more new and exciting stuff come around but I can't help but to feel they ran out of ideas.

Sell the license please :)

This game is very difficult to play.
Button Mashing events are extremely difficult.
I'am pressing the buttons like mad but still losing.

I'm 18 so no kid and I buy the game so whats your point? :-)

People who like wrestling buy this game, I know lot of people online who play it and are 20/25+ so :-)

Can't wait for this game! But please THQ fix the animation glitches, make them move smoother, put more storylines in this one especially for RAW, fix the commentary so that if you play with Triple H they don't say Batista and when you deliver the Pedigree that they shout BATISTA BOMB!

Wow, such effort from THQ as usual.

Apparently they are redoing all the animations this time, which I think they have said every time.

If your 18 and still watch wrestling I feel sorry for you. I mean come on you can't possibly be watching the actual wrestling cause it couldn't be more staged. Maybe you like the cornball soap opera of it all, but thats even worse. Atleast its not staged in a video game, so playing the games isn't as pathetic.
Commented on 2007-04-02 22:52:16
chrs are well modeled but, yeah, its wrestling, so meh.
Commented on 2007-04-02 23:27:02
Please... you couldn't be more wrong most_hated. All wrestling fans that aren't kids know the damn thing is staged, we enjoy the wrestling and storyline. Oh and I guess everyone that goes to a movie or watches stuff like 24 are pathetic too. If anyone's pathetic it's you, good day...
Commented on 2007-04-02 23:27:41
Those are extremely nice models, almost CG quality. But wrestling....:P
Commented on 2007-04-02 23:36:53
Everyone knows wrestling is fake, but I still enjoy watching it. It's suppose to be a form of Entertainment, like a TV show, or Movie. I admire the amount of time and effort all of them put into their acts. I sure as hell know I couldn't go out there week after week, LIVE, and do what they do w/o making mistakes in front of all those people, and viewers at home.
Commented on 2007-04-02 23:37:27
Ahahaha.. best laughs today. Just look at pic 10 with the rope :D

i don't mind watching wersling sometimes, & i am no fan of the sport, but i do enjoy the game more then watching it.
SmackDown was a great wersling game on ps2, i did skip the latest version on 360, but i may be interested on this one, if they improve the animations, story mode, & the online play

How could this look worse the S vs R 2007?????
Commented on 2007-04-03 01:03:47
How the hell is THQ getting away with making a gay sex game? Madness!
Commented on 2007-04-03 01:33:32
it seems like a really big american thing. Not many people in the uk seem to watch it passed the early teens. Not too say its a bad thing of course. Just a culture difference. But yeah I see what people mean about how its sort of a play of sorts. But im more into mind bendin storylines where you leave them thinking what the hell just happened, then you relize the genius of it. I hate mindless action movies so im hardly going to enjoy wrestling.

Looks very detailed but the facial animations aren't convincing at all. That's what I hate about games that try to look realistic. They always get something way wrong and weird.

That's the problem with anything 3d trying to look photorealistic, if there's anything that's off about it, no matter how small, it stands out like a sore thumb.

nice models and textures, shame the lighting and shadowing looks like playstation 2

I think it's funny that someone who likes anime (glares at avatar) will have anything funny to say about wrestling. Don't throw rocks when inside your glass house.

Wasn't trying to bridge the two just saying both are things that can be easily criticized, sorry my post was kind of vague.
Commented on 2007-04-03 14:45:44
Wow...look at the all the wrestling bashers in here, people have their own preferences, their own tastes, if someone wants to watch wrestling then let them.

I don't watch wrestling myself but i do enjoy these games, they're a great laugh with a few friends around, think i'm gonna pass on this one though until THQ come out with a next gen version.
