This is the FINAL CONFIRMED roster. All of the legends have been added, and the roster has been confirmed by THQ themselves.
Bubba Ray Dudley
Rob Van Dam
Scotty 2 Hotty
Yes, that is the final, complete roster. I can confirm that Eugene, Billy Kidman, Paul London and La Resistance will NOT be in. You will just have to settle with CAW.
When you look at the roster, it does seem quite impressive. Rikishi was removed due to his firing, though Sable has remained.Read more ›
The graphics are amazing. THQ continues to raise the bar on PS2 game graphics. The mapping of the faces is superb.
The create modes - wrestler, PPV, and belt - are all great. Though there could be a better option for facial features for the wrestlers.
The sound is great. Most wrestlers come out to their themes and gestures. There are a few themes that they just didn't have the rights to. Ah well.
The season mode is once again a great way to play the game with some continuity.
The specialty matches are well done.
The "clean" and "dirty" meters and the resulting power bump.
The greater endurance of the wrestlers. No more knocking someone out with an elbow. No more jumping back up immediately after being hit with a chair.
Many, many options for game play, etc...
Legends! The return of the Hitman and Andre.
--- The not so good...
The storylines are redundant. Once you've played a season, you've pretty much seen the stories. Plus, the initial stories don't portray the WWE Divas in the best light. Making different choices only means a slight alteration in the story.
Talk about redundant. The announce teams have about ten phrases that they rotate through several times per match.
The superstar voiceovers are a bit annoying. Only Vince McMahon sounds like he's putting anything behind them. The rest sound as though they were half asleep in the studio while recording.
A very good game by THQ that seems to be limited by all of the cool things they tried to pack into it.
First off, the new modes: One of the most wanted features that have been included this time around is online play! If you have an online adapter with a DSL or Cable connection, you can play your friends across North America. All of the matches from the previous game, Here Comes the Pain, are intact, but a new match has been added: Parking Lot Brawl. Yes, like the one Eddie Guerrero and John Cena were in in October 2003. It comes complete with interactive weapons, such as the cars you are encircled in. Also, in this games season mode comes with complete voiceovers for every, yes you read right, EVERY character in the game. The season mode is anticipated to be the same quality, if not better, as last years. At the beginning of the match, you can choose whether you are a "clean" or "dirty" fighter, which can give you special rewards in the match. Also, at the beginning of the match is a clever "test of strength" mini-game.
The create-a features have been expanded this year. Obviously, create-a-wrestler is still in, but two more create-a's have been instated. From SmackDown! Know Your Role, the Create-a-Pay-Per-View mode has been resurrected, and a new Create-a-Belt feature has been included. These two modes are going to be one of the ones that makes this game great. Don't expect the high-quality entrance creater that was in Day of Reckoning, however. It appears to still be GameCube exclusive. Other than that, SvR looks to bring a lot to the table in it's Create-a-Wrestler mode, like it does every year.Read more ›
