Since I don't actually watch wrestling anymore, the only way I'm going to get any enjoyment out of it now is through video games.
I posted a WWF Raw for Xbox review several months back on the main site... I found the game disappointing.
I just picked up Legends of Wrestling 2 (gave the first one a miss, thanks muchly) and it's better than I thought it would be.
Nothing I've played touches the THQ games for N64 (WCW/nWo Revenge, WWF No Mercy, etc.) but this one is a lot of fun so far.
The gameplay takes some getting used to, but it is decent. And since LOW2 allows you to access music you load into the Xbox, you can enjoy your favourite tunes while matching Roddy Piper vs. Sabu or one dead guy vs. another dead guy.
Rented it, played it for about 5 minutes, then went back to SmackDown: Shut Your Mouth :)
Utilizing the belief system and work ethic (Mattributes) of THE Matt Hardy to create a better life for yourself by fulfilling your goals and dreams. Mattitude is a quality that can help anyone -- regardless of background or past -- to achieve success. You just have to make it a lifestyle, a mindset, a religion. Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives me an advantage over everyone else.
Has anyone played this for Gamecube? I had the first one for the PS2 and I really didn't like it that much. Is this a case of If you liked the first one get it, or ..? Do you think it's different enough that I should rent it and give it another shot?
Your analogy is similar to:
"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?" "I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?" "They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"
I have to warn you, the gamecube version is the worst. I've heard that the blood doesn't stay on the face, and the extra wrestler interviews (very well done btw) aren't included. But yes, I would suggest a rental, just to try it out. I loved the first one so I picked this one up first.
Well, maybe they'll let you alter movesets - I'm sure some variation of the Diamond Cutter is in there. The last game in this series was absolutely terrible - *but* it seems like THQ intentionally botches the first WWE game on each engine.
