  • Excerpt: With the Gamecube on its proverbial last legs, we look to be in a similar situation to the one we faced with the Nintendo 64. When that console was losing the race, THQ gave us No Mercy , which is one of the main reasons that many gamers have held on to their N64. The old 45-minute plus multiplayer matches, outstanding AI and supreme levels of control have, for my money, never been bettered. So, I was hoping that WWE Day of Reckoning 2 would change that.

WWE Day of Reckoning 2 (GC) Review

10 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Almost like 'real' sports games, every year WWE slaps another console game onto the market. This year was no exception with the addition of WWE: Day of Reckoning 2 for the Nintendo Gamecube. Now, if you ask anyone, it's a pretty well-known fact that Day of Reckoning 1, despite its shortcomings, was the best Gamecube-based grappler on the market. Did DoR2 expand upon this? Or is it a step back in the progression of a promising franchise? Read on.

  • Excerpt: If you're a wrestling fan, you know that the two things that make the sport special are solid storylines and athletic matches that ride the wave of energy from the crowd. Lame plotlines before a fight, and you might as well be fighting a dark match; don't respond to the crowd or perform, and you're probably not going to be a popular wrestler for long.

Nintendo World Report
18 September 2005
  • Summary: Is THQ's newest wrestling game a jackhammer of a sequel or just a piddling roster update? Get the answer from a true wrestling fanatic.
  • Pros: Good storyline, More detailed Superstars, New gameplay systems: submission, stamina, Momentum Shift, Very deep Create-A-Superstar mode
  • Cons: • AI is stupid and easy to beat, New graphics come with some trade-offs, No importing created characters from the original DOR, Some Superstars not as polished as others

  • Excerpt: Have you ever played one of those games that you both love and hate at the same time, one of those games that while you enjoy it, there are things about it that make you want to throw up? WWE: Day of Reckoning 2 is just such a game. On the one side sit realistic graphics, gameplay that is very close to what usually happens in the WWE, and an excellent, believable story mode.

WWE Day Of Reckoning 2 (GameCube)

  • Conclusion: All in all this is an enjoyable and polished title (the AI could still do with some work) that does everything you could ask from it. This Gamecube franchise still lacks the impact and raw playability of the PS2’s Smackdown series, but if you can’t grapple with that fact then this is an instant must-buy for any Gamecube owning WWE Fans.
  • Pros: Smart graphics, Fluid movement, Loads of options
  • Cons: Still some annoyingly dumb AI, Still purely for WWE fans
