" Here's how I see it: If Alex (who likes wrestling and wrestling games) can't figure out the controls, then that's a bad sign.
Yes, that is a bad sign. It's a bad sign of Alex's inability to play the game right. "
So you agree that it's a poor indication of Alex's ability to play the game, and more of a fundamental issue with the game itself? I don't actually care enough about the game to argue with you, and I have no idea why you would bump this thread. Just thought I'd make a smartass response. "
I don't know if it's really a bump with only a few threads here. But really, there is tutorial immediately after you bypass the start screen, which teaches you everything you need to know. All the ladder stuff and so on is explained by prompts. It's about as bad as pulling the LT instead of RT in an FPS and blaming it on the game.
I don't really know, why the GB crew give the Smackdown games no chance at all, lately. Jeff even had fun in his Quick Look of last year's game which was a worse game than this year's.
