WWE WrestleMania 21 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: With Xbox gamers having such high hopes for WrestleMania 21, it is truly a shame that it couldn’t live up to its potential. While many of the glaring issues could be considered growing pains for Studio Gigante, it’s of little consolation for gamers that have been waiting for a decent wrestling title on the Xbox.

WWE Wrestlemania XXI Review

VideoGamer.com
11 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Wrestling is a much misunderstood form of entertainment. While many people bemoan its complete fakeness and brand all fans as "idiots" for believing the whole thing to be real, most people who follow it don't do it because they think it's real, but because it's a lot of fun to watch. When watched as an over-the-top soap opera the true genius of WWE shines through.

  • Excerpt: It seems at least once or twice a year we get a new wrestling game, which is great for fans, but what does WWE Wrestlemania 21 have over the countless other wrestling games? Find out if it has what it takes to pin the competition, or if it gets hurled from the top turnbuckle.
  • Pros: ups: motion capture looks great, 45 characters to choose from, multiple match types
  • Cons: downs: sluggish controls, poor graphics, overly-balanced gameplay

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Broken, cumbersome and very hard to enjoy, WWE WrestleMania 21 cannot be saved by its slick appearance and host of celebrity voices. An amusingly badly-scripted, bling-bling series of storyline cutscenes will provide a few laughs, but the game itself is just too frustrating to provide much entertainment. WrestleMania X8 on the Gamecube, despite its age, would serve you much better.

Game Over Online
15 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Wrestling games have always been incredibly popular, thanks to the easy to grasp game action and the colorful, over the top characters that populate the rosters. For years, most wrestling fans had to rely on the PlayStation to get their fix, thanks to the number of games released for that console.

  • Conclusion: The visuals of WWE Wrestlemania 21 are actually the one thing in the game that makes it seem as though the game was headed in the right direction. From all of the videos we got to see of the game before we got to play it, the visuals shown were actually quite stunning, but ultimately let down by the sub par gameplay. The most impressive facet of the visuals is the character models, which are full of beautiful detail along side some great use of color.

  • Conclusion: Lowdown Wrestlemania 21 isn't the wrestling holy grail fans have been waiting for rather a small sampling of what the future might be for wrestling games. THQ's new development team really put the polish on the games visuals and sound, but failed to polish up the final product. WWE fans I suggest renting this one and deciding if it's worth the price of purchase.
