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.
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.
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: 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.
Conclusion: I completly agree that they need to recall the game, but it didn't completly suck, it defently needs it improvents. But for the most part, it was a step-up from Raw 2, and maybe even Smackdown Vs. Raw (I have a PS2 too) , But the glitches in this game I think are what makes this suck so much! My Xbox froze to point where I had to turn it off 5 Times in the two days I had it! that was only maybe 6 hrs. total of gameplay.
Conclusion: Well finally WWE WM21 for X Box is out. And I have patiently waited these long monthes for "the best wrestling game for the X Box". Well I believe I have been lied too. WWE Raw 2 was alot better then this game. Graphicly it was outstanding, but gameplay sucked, Career mode sucked, CAW sucked. I am very disappointed in this game. Here Comes The Pain was a much better game and that game out like two years ago.
Conclusion: My hope is that THQ & Studio G. admit they released a flop. The glitches are unacceptable and for it to be as bad as it is, my hope is, like everyone who has played it thus far, the game makers of this slap in the face work on it, make it right and do a huge recall. Shame on THQ and shame on me for buying the George W. Bush of wrestling games. I feel cheated like I'm driving a Hummer with a Ford Escort engine.
Summary: If you're reading reviews for xbox games at this point..you're probably after a cheap bargain wwe game to while away these cold winter nights..and as mania 21 is the most recent with the better graphics, and only costs a fiver odd, it MUST be a bargain, right? WRONG! Yes..it does have better graphics than Raw 2, but that's really all it has going for it. the commentary is utterly irrelevant to what's going on in real time in the ring (you'd think J.R.
Summary: To be honest I was a bit put out with the reviews of Wrestlemania 21 when I first saw them,considering it got alot of good reviews in the preview codes. It was when I first played the game that I saw what the quibbles were all about,the countering system is a good idea but you need ninja reflexes to get them to work properly,also there is a few cases of glitching when moves off turnbuckles etc dont connect when they clearly should.
Summary: I found wm21 a disappointment, i found all the legend games way better however i thought wm21 had really good graphics and was a lot better than raw & raw 2.Wrestle mania 21 on career mode is just to easy if you lose a match they don't let you carry on with your career so you just keep on having to have a rematch till you win that match to be able to move on with your career.After you have completed the career mode once all you can do is either play on exhibition mode...
