I'm not even a big fan of wrestling but this looks fuckin great!

Posted by TurboMan

The greatness of that Paul Bearer animation makes me wish they spent a bit longer on this game so it would be great.

Wait, that guy from The Real World is actually a wrestler now? really?

Posted by JohnPaulVann

Andre the Giant is the greatest wrestler in the history of the sport but this horse shit game rapes his legacy to make a cheap buck.

What, No Iron Sheik? For shame.

I was expecting it to be crap but wow it actually looks good, except Cena and Edge they look super weird.

Oh, you. You're the reason why they're still pumping out those shitty Smackdown Vs Raw games. Besides, how many kids know how to perform juggle combos? Or have even heard of the Macho Man? 
 
For people who appreciate good gameplay and good wrestling games, this looks god damn fantastic. I can't wait to buy it.

The biggest thing holding john morrison back is his lack of charisma, he's great in the ring.
So wierd to match him up with "who is the most charismatic".

Posted by Hero_Swe

What the fuck? Is it just me. Or am I hearing Hell March 1 in the background when they were starting a new path?
Posted by HairyMike87

Wait, how the hell is Hulk Hogan in this game? Isn't he in TNA?

Posted by Generiko

I didn't want this quick look to end

Looks fun.  Might have to check it out.

Which one? World Tour or Nitro?

Giant Bomb: The only website left that actually covers shitty wrestling games.

There is no skill required to play the Smackdown vs. Raw games.... so I'm not sure what you're talking about. With that said, Fire Pro Advance and No Mercy (and occasionally Day of Reckoning) still scratch my itch :D 
 
And I'm pretty sure most kids who watch WWE these days know who the older guys are. They can't afford to rely on their own current production to let them forget. Nostalgia-nostalgia-nostalgia... and even then, they re-write where ever it happens to make them the most money, so it matters even less. This is why I stopped watching this stuff years ago :|

Well i don't really support Smackdown vs Raw or think they are shitty games as you say (more in line with there not changing much with each new game).  I was always a fan of the  WWE wrestlemania 2000 or No Mercy games myself. I'm not saying this is a bad game or anything but the style of it is a little over the top for me. I have never liked the so buffed up design of the wrestlers and i don't care for the over the top moves at least not like that. I was cool with in your house style of craziness if you remember that game.
 
Anyway i'm sure this is a fine game and many will enjoy this if they are tired of the SvsR games and i liked the showdown promo videos they do. But this is purely on a matter of taste and not speaking of the merit of the game.

@DanNapolitano:

Yes!  I'd love those with a full roster of all the old and new superstars. 
 
The no-selling here ruins the game for me.  I know it's over the top, but that makes the moves feel even more impotent when Cena pops right back up.  And a finisher should almost always be the end.

Best wrestling game since Here Comes The Pain?

Once again i'm no Smackdown vs raw fan or anything and lack of skill was maybe a bad choice of words. I just want more options in my wrestling game. I have said before that i was more into The No mercy era of games and found them to be the best wrestling game of their times. fire pro was some good stuff too. This game is cool and all just don't like the style of it. 
 
But too your point i don't think younger fans will know the older guys maybe macho man or hulk hogan but the others they won't know. But i feel that is ok because it does a good job of a younger fan can jump in a pick john cena while a older fan can pick stone cold or Brett heart
Posted by HarlequinRiot

Surprisingly good. And Cena's taint will never have enough of any move.

I heart Jared for the Botchamania reference.

Huh - I was under the impression that THQ San Diego was somehow related to Paradox. THANK GOD. Because as the only fighting game developer in the country besides Netherealm (Midway Chicago), they're probably the only guys who care about animation blending. All wrestling/MMA/boxing games are stiff as shit because of lazy, overly mo-capped animations (though the new Fight Night admittedly looks much better in that regards), but the guys who did MK: Shaolin Monks and TNA Impact are some of the best animators in the biz when it comes to snappy, responsive animations and great animation blending. No wonder WWE All Stars is such a blast to play. Awesome for THQ - I hope All Stars does well for 'em. It sure as sh** is more fun to play than Smackdown VS. Raw.
Great Quick Look guys!

@AllanIceman: Same here. I can't believe the hours wasted watching wrestling.

The hilarious crowds are the best part of any wrestling game.

@Hero_Swe: 
Hah, I was reminded of it, too. Kinda uncanny until I realized it wasn't the same song.
Posted by DarkbeatDK

This is how wrestling should be. Not that uncanny valley, 2 different moves, climbing on ladders crap.

Edited by 234r2we232

Where is the Bionic Man sound effect during those special moves?

I'm sorry, slightly above average animation blending doesn't make for a good wrestling. I'm sorry, it just doesn't.

Where my Rick Flair and Sting at. I know Im the only one who cares about Sting but he's a legend to me alright.!
*wipes away tear*

Posted by jakob187

Goddamn.  I'll throw down the $60 just to watch all of the promos in that game.  The Stone Cold vs CM Punk one was pretty goddamn great.  The Undertaker bit on the campaign makes me want to watch some old wrestling videos.  Mankind/Undertaker Boiler Room match sounds good.

Don't quote me on this, but I don't think Sting ever wanted anything to do with WWE.

I wish John Cena was that ripped. This game is possibly the best wrestling simulation to date.

Edited by NegativeCero

But guys, modern wrestling isn't shitty because The Rock is on wrestling again. He's sort of a legend right? 
 
Edit: Hell yeah, Randy Savage.
