Much has already been voiced here about the "complicated" and "frustrating" controls and, I agree, they are. This is mostly why I opted for "Control Type B." This alternate control scheme was far more easier to navigate and, while I still don't prefer using those pesky analog sticks, I actually believe it grants the game more of a nostalgic arcade feel. It only really took me ten minutes to familiarize myself with how everything worked and, now, I'm pulling off suplexes, powerslams, and turnbuckle leaps like a seasoned pro! Anybody still amiss over the controls should therefore give this other set a try. They will all immediately notice a firsthand steady drop in their complaints.
I purchased the game this past weekend and am currently three months into the 24/7 mode with Ric Flair. Talk about a wrestling fan's wet dream! This new gaming experience ingeniously blends the traditional Season and General Manager modes from years past and gives us what is, essentially, a twenty-four hour seven-day-a-week breakdown of a professional wrestler's workaday life. It provides an overflowing plethora of character development options. You get statistical tracking and career goals that all serve to guide you toward the ultimate achievement of becoming a WWE Legend. What I find particularly cool is the whole "realism" aspect. If you're injured in any way during a match, you'll receive a text message encouraging you to pursue treatment. This means, to anybody who may not already know, that you rest up and relax on your "off" days. Rest & relaxation is but one of several options you have when you're not wrestling.Read more ›
remember if there was the I Quit match)(which i loved). The fact that you can play with any character and storylines are always different. I dig the fact that they let you personalize things more to your iwn unique likings making it more personable to you ,as too just letting smackdown dollars add up. The controls are different and took me awhile to get into it,as well as the submission matches are difficult sometimes(as the opponent can dismantle the submission or counter it eadier at times) All in all there are plenty of old and new wrestlers too play with. I forgot too mention RVD,Batista,Tommy Dreamer and Big Show. The rest are debatable but i enjoyed the legends for the most part. I wish TNA made a game this cohesive,but hey it is all good i don't play games much but when i do i like skateboarding,snowboarding wrestling & or fighting. The graphics are neat but 4 stars cuz the game will not play in either of my 2 PS2 machines and i don't play enough to want a new machine(will not buy used) and what happens if it does not play in the new one? So i use my buddies machine when i come over too have a few beers & smoke.
All in all another good SVR game with way better storyline mode.
2008 has a much easier control system, to me anyway, making use of the PS control pads buttons as well as the analog sticks. It is very easy to get used to, and there is no crossing fingers over or a need to press two of the regular buttons (X,O,Sq,Tri) at the same time. Your direction/walking is preformed with the left analog. And moves are preformed depending on which way you toggle the right analog stick. Holding down the shoulder L1 button will make you run, and holding down the right shoulder button will aid you in doing a more powerful move than just using the right analog on its own. Also the buttons aid to pick up and drop weapons, irish whip and various other things depending on what match your are in.
Just about any type of match up you want is in this game. From one on one, being able to customize the rules to whatever you want; one fall, various falls, time limits, rope break on/off, DQ, falls count anywhere etc... to tag, trio, survivor series, various on various, special guest referee etc.. as well as matches like Cage, Chamber, Hell In a Cell, Tables, Ladders, TLC, Extreme Rules etc.. about the only thing not here is a scaffold match or pyramid, which is something WWE has never done anyway.Read more ›
