" The quick look was full of misinformation, and Alex struggling with the controls because he was constantly pressing the wrong buttons. Press B to lean the ladder? Nah, I'm gonna try to lean it by pressing a completely different button, throwing it over the ropes. But that was totally the games fault. Struggling to put the ladder back into the ring? I'm just going to stand here proceeding to press the wrong button multiple times even though it clearly doesn't work! Alex consistently tried picking up the ladder by kicking it, which once again is the complete wrong button. Alex sat there for like 30 seconds trying to hit both guys with a ladder even though he was clearly too far away for it to connect. Yet in the QL, he blamed the game for all of this stuff when it was him being stupid. Seriously... I like Alex... but come on. And of course there's the backstage brawl where he just sat there kicking and hitting with a fire extinguisher and said that's how they all go and you can't do anything else, all the while completely forgetting each backstage area has numerous environmental attacks, and numerous different weapon types. Sure it's not the best game in the world, but it sure as hell isn't as bad as Alex made it look, it's actually one of the best Smackdown games since "Here Comes the Pain" and his main point of why he doesn't like it being the gameplay is kind of flawed when he really doesn't even know how to play it, which is clear judging by that quick look. inb4 you're stoopid and wrestling is stoopid too! "this made me burst out into laughter. thank you!
Not nearly as bad as Alex made it seem..

" @StrikerTheLizard said: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." @JJWeatherman said: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. "" 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. "
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.

Or are you saying that that dude is having this thread appear on his list because of the bug and that's why he's replying? Because that could make sense....
