Conclusion: Possibly the worst wrestling game I’ve ever played. I could well be judging it quite harshly as I bought this and Def Jam: Fight for New York in the same day. Graphics are nice and shiny, however someone at THQ clearly forgot that you can’t have a game with out gameplay. It has a nice selection of wrestlers which are more difficult to control than a rabid dog who doesn’t want to be taken somewhere by its owner.
Conclusion: It's the WORSE wrestling game I ever encountered. That's only one thing that made me buy this game and that's is because of the female wrestlers. They're so SEXY that they look real. When you play BRA and PANTY, choose Trish Stratus because her bra covers half her breast and you can see the upper half of her breast! And her panty looks like going to slip all the time! She wears her panty below the waist! I don't know about yours because I bought this game in Singapore.
Conclusion: When i say that the newest addition to the WWE series is worse then the original WWE Raw game for Xbox, i mean what i am saying. And that is sad considering that Raw was the very first Xbox WWE game to come out... Gameplay: The story in career mode is basically your trying to make your way up to winning against your opponent on Wrestlemania 21. (WWE's main PPV.) On the road, you will battle many opponents and watch many cutscenes.
Summary: Flat out.....This game was horrible. I was very disappointed, concidering all the hype and potential that this game was suppose to pose. Everything, except maybe the graphics, were very upseting, and I couldn't have wasted my money in a worst matter. Hopefully someone will read this and not get bated into the B.S. that they tried to put out about this game and save yourself some time, money, and a lot of frustration and disappointment.
Conclusion: like everyone else, I was perhaps looking forward to WM21 with over anticipated excitement, for so long we in the Xbox community had been conned and denied when it came down to a decent wrestling game and yet our counterparts in the PS2 comunity seemed to have finally been rewarded with Raw vs Smackdown, so there I was expecting pretty much the same for the Xbox, sadly I was greatly disapointed.
Conclusion: The worst wrestling game of 2005, Thank God that I own a ps2 and a Gamecube. Smackdown vs Raw for the PS2 is the best wrestling game, followed by Day of Reckoning on the gamecube. and WM21 is a very poor third, considering the power of the xbox and the very long wait that the brits had to endure this game is the worst Xbox title of 2005. wheres the exclusive match type never seen in a wrestling game?
Summary: this game is pretty well brought out, especially the online play and voice over, but the graphics are not as good as the smackdown games on PS2's, it was fun on that but this game on the XBOX is not completely fun. The graphics i boring, when u actually try go for a move, it won't let u because the camera is not on u, but then the parts are all fun, the season is sucky because u can't us a custom made character like smackdown, win the world heavyweight championship and...
Conclusion: I think that WM21 is better than Raw & Raw 2, but the gameplay could really be improved. The graphics are great, I like the new superstar voiceovers for the career mode, but why the heck can you not use the WWE superstars music in your created superstars entrance? Oh and for the whole xbox live issue, i heard that they made an autoupdate thing so you can play the game online, but if you want to use your created superstar you have to recreate him, considering that is...
Conclusion: this game is better than raw and raw 2 but the thing that pisses me off the most is that when you on the floor your opponent can do a grapple has many times thay want! and the AI is only by millimeter is better than Raw 2. The hell in a cell maches are great. Another thing i dont like about this game is too slow, Raw 2 is slower and Raw 1 is extreamly slow! I dont like it when you cant use a WWE superstar in carrer mode.
Conclusion: After Raw 2, I was really upset. Where is my good XBox wrestler? Will I ever get one? I saw screen shots of Wrestlemania 21, heard the glowing previews, got myself all excited, endured the seemingly endless pushbacks, still excited that they were PERFECTING XBox's first great wrestling title. Or not. There was so much buildup around Wrestlemania 21 - the greatest wrestling game on XBox and whatnot - that it would be hard NOT to be disappointed.
