I just saw previews and am impressed with this game. It is a wrestling game featuring top rappers beating each other up. I saw suplexes and spinning hurricanrannas in adddition to ball punches.

Pros:

Developed by Aki, the same people who did the N64 WWE games. The games engine was originally going to be used for the next WCW game that never came out.

Produced by EA Big Sports – same makers of NBA Street and SSX.

Music.

Gameplay looks good to me

Cons:

No big name wrestlers – Can’t somebody get a license for NWA-TNA wrestlers?

Doesn’t have any women as playable characters

May be watered down from the M to a T rating. It needs the cursing and ultra-violence to stand out.

I also had high hopes for the Wu-Tang game and the Simpsons wrestling game and was disappointed.

I played Pride:FC and was very disappointed. It takes longer to load than to play.

Any thoughts?

Aki wrestling system was always infinetly superior to the Smackdown systems for one simple reason. Psychology. You beat on a guy's legs, he starts to limp, slap on the figure four, he taps. Smackdown's graphics were better and they finally got a good storyling mode going, but Aki's psychology was the best damn thing I've ever seen in a wrestling game. If Vendetta's got that, I'm there.

Played the demo on last months OPM disc, layed down some major beatdown with the M-E-T-H-O-D Man, reserved it within a week afterwards. There's also an interview with Meth in the most recent OPM, where he was quoted as saying the PS1 Wu-Tang game was "wack". The only major problem I have with it is the lack of CAW, but hopefully they'll put that in the inevitable sequal. And as far as no wrestlers go, tell me this isn't Scotty 2 Hotty. :P

THIS NEEDS TO BE MATURE!!! As a HUGE rap fan, when Luda comes down I need to here all the F-bombs, N-bombs, and everyother swear word! Hell with Teen, I'd imagine that would take out the "N-word" and I sure as hell don't want any censored Ludacris or DMX songs in it. While WWE entrance music for some guys is great, hopefully in this game I can run out to the ring with Rockwilder or Southern Hospitality blaring.

nope not him bc Drake dude is on my NBA STREET game and he acts and sounds more like a wannabee Eminem to me. and theres no way STREET would bother copying Scotty

I forget. Is "wack" good or bad?

Whack is bad (Kriss Kross wore their clothes backwards because "Inside out is wikkity wikkity wikkity whack.")

The game wasn't great compared to the best fighters of the day, but the CONCEPT of unlocking the whole Wu-Tang crew as fighters was AWESOME. The animations for winning a match were fun and no one can touch the Ol' Dirty Bastard's drunken boxing.

Slang footnote, Sham means bad as in negative not bad as in bad to the bone.

All white rappers hate each other (ICP/Everlast/Limp Bizkit/Vanilla Ice VS Eminem, ICP VS Korn) so I fully expect the follow up to be Wigger Fight:Word To Yo Moms

Some part of me deep down wishes and hopes that Vanilla Ice is the secret End Boss or some unlockable character in this game. I'll buy it either way, but that would just be icing on the cake.

Believe it or not, he's down with the Dark Carnival. Check the Amazing Jekkel Bros. linear notes. He's one of their "ninjas"
