So true. The first 10 minutes were spent watching two AI characters battling each other. Why? Plus, neither Alex nor Ryan appear to be aware of what's going on in WWE these days. If Jeff were in this quick look, he definitely would have  mentioned current Nexus white slavery storyline and given his thoughts on these recent developments.

I wouldn't normally say this but this Video Game, 'Sport' and the people who like it who are older than 7 years old are Retarded. Full on Tard's. Sorry America :D

Wow. A lot of wrestlers now a days have no personality, they're all the same. It's really fallen hasn't it.

LOL Bret Hart at 8:30 ish was like he'd had a heads up about another screwjob and wouldn't play ball.

I'm too European to understand wrestling. 
 
(But who bothers to get upset at Alex for playing a god damn WWE game "wrong"?)

alex's voice makes me want to cleave my face off with a rusty bowie knife and then stick my head in a vat of acid then throw myself off a cliff and upon landing explode in a radiant ball of annoyed fury

As apposed to the people who go out of their way to insult those that like to watch something as "retarded" as wrestling every chance they get? Will never understand why so many idiots feel the need to make fun of something other people like and can't just accept that it's not something they like and be done with it.

@MJHAYLETT: Wow, you're a jerk. I'm not even American and I love pro wrestling. The drama, the action, the technique, the characters. 
Haters gonna hate, I guess.

Is there anyone older than eight who still cares about wrestling? Hell, I thought wrestling was stupid even when I was eight.

lol wrestling

The game looks terrible.

It's been a long road!... to Wrestle-mania.

Posted by animateria

I still love Wrestling... I mean it's a little more ironic nowadays since I find the juvenile storylines hilarious.
 
(Nexus making Cena be their personal slave because he lost a 'dare'. Totally elementary school shit right there!)
 
As someone who hasn't picked up a wrestling game since SvR2006 I'm certain I'm going to enjoy this a lot.
 
Hell, it might be more fun creating stuff than playing the game... But it doesn't change the fact that I'll be wasting countess hours of my time creating characters and storylines. And having an absolute blast.
 
I enjoyed that bit the most in SvR2006 and the new additions since then is totally awesome.

Anyone noticed that guy in the clinic at 12:40 looks like Batista?

Tell me, what's the difference between people like you who piss on wrestling for no reason and the people who piss on video games?  Grow up, troll.

Are you sure they are wrestling fans? Because I'm pretty sure they're in the same boat I am.  That being that they used to be wrestling fans, who wished they were still wrestling fans, but aren't wrestling fans anymore, because wrestling is so shitty now. "
It's not shitty now. You just have a strong nostalgia filter upon you. But it's nothing truly amazing either. There's still good matches going on in the business. Just not as (apparently) awesome as whatever the Attitude era used to stand for.

WE WANT JEFF WE WANT JEFF. by GOD!!! WHAT CARNAGE 

Edited by CL60

The comments on this quicklook make me /facepalm. I'll say again, this QL is NOT a fair representation of the game. This is easily one of the best Smackdown games since HCTP.

Couldn't agree more. His voice is gravely in a very annoying way, as if he has something stuck inside of his throat. Also, his game reviews have been terrible ever since the gamespot days. 
Posted by SilenceUK

am not a fan of the games but its not fair when they make bad comments about the game ( when they said they amde a promo for a match there not in ) and they were wrong because they didnt pay any attention it saddens me a little
Edited by LiK

i haven't watched wrestling in years and Randy Orton's tattoos look insane. 
  
oh yea, the game looks like shit.

Posted by trophyhunter

How can people say such things about  wrestling?
I mean Luchadeer is right over there.

The best train wreck of a match I have seen from these games in a while.

Nice boost of self confidence for Alex, you guys.

Looks like the same old Smackdown, I think the last one I played was 06 to check out the GM mode. Smackdown has all the bells and whistles but from a pure gameplay standpoint Fire Pro Wrestling Returns is still my favorite wrestling game.

What? The Giant Bomb community never ceases to amaze me with stupid comments like this.
Posted by DaveMagic

I don't like it when non-wrestling fans review wrestling games. That's all I have to say.

Posted by adamfedoruk

this game is perfect for its audience. it looks terrible and the people who would be interested are dumbasses. MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

Posted by Krystal_Sackful

In the words of Mike Nelson, "Yes, give me MORE wrestling."

Posted by Sinkwater

Jeff needs to be in all wrasslin' QLs!  Alex and Ryan were hilarious in this, though.

would rather set 60 dollars on fire.

Agreed.
Posted by DannyJ

There used to be a time when wrestling games were amazingly fun, but now all they care about in their CAW system and canned animations and are clunky as all hell.

Posted by Kraznor

That looked terrible from a gameplay perspective. Here's an idea, get as many of the people responsible for making the Blitz: The League games and task them with creating a subversive, "nod and a wink" wrestling game that gets into the real heart of things, that is to say, acknowledge it's fake and make it more about pumping up the crowd and managing an entertainment empire. I would buy that game.

Mr.Tracksuit is Travis Touchdown

more like, ring of honor.

Posted by NocturnusFatalis

To the ones asking "Why would Alex quick look a game he hates?!?!?", the fact of the matter is quick looks are only funny when the ones involved are giving the game in question the business. Quick looks where both dudes love the game are actually a little dull, though I will watch the titles I'm specifically interested in if it's a blockbuster release of something (Uncharted 2, Mass Effect 2, God of War III).  
 
Oh, and it doesn't help them be happy about looking at the game when the game sucks.

That game at least seemed to have some style.

21:00 
You pressed the wrong button, Alex. It's not the game's fault, it's your fault. It clearly said "B LEAN." 
 
22:00 
And then he leaps off of the ladder because he's pressing the wrong button AGAIN. 
 
30:05 
That's Tracksuit swinging at the ladder, because Alex doesn't know you need to hit A to pick it up. 
 
And at the end it's apparent that Alex doesn't even know what the story's about. I guess he skipped all the cutscenes, etc. 
BRING BACK JEFF!

He pressed the wrong button a lot. The game really isn't as bad as Alex made it look. But of course, the comments are full of people calling the people who like the game dumbasses.
