Based on presentation alone, I would really be unhappy if this turned out to have the worst control system ever. I'm knocking on wood that it's at least better than Raw 2. The boards at Gamefaqs say that the countering is just like Smackdown! HCTP and Smackdown! vs. Raw, but in all honesty, I'm not sure how reliable they are.
Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.
It looks good, but I'm still holding out for a remake of Nintendo 64's WWF No Mercy. It's still me and my friends wrestling game of choice. Since the Nintendo DS is practically a portable N64 I've got my fingers crossed.

Tony Hawk 3 and 4 both had free online play. I haven't played THUG online yet, but I did use the "download your face" feature and that was free, so I would assume the rest of the game is still free as well.
