Well you obviously dont hav ea clue what ur talking about if u mentioned WWF Raw and WWE Raw 2 because they were horrible games.
While they were horrible. There were elements that I really liked about them, things like being able to interrupt the ring entrances & the phonetic creation of Ring Announcements were elements that THQ Really could use to help improve the current game.
Can I just say that Rhodes not having the baggers for his entrance and the jacket is horrible. He's someone I plan on using often and that's disappointing.
Am not overly bothered by the baggers not being there. It'd be a nice addition, but there are a lot of things they need to fix before doing something like that. - Like actually having the managers come down to the ring alongside the wrestler for example.
The Jacket however is frustrating - as it is with all other wrestlers who do not have it. Why they cannot have the wrestlers wear clothing that gets removed during the entrance I do not know. As others have said, it's either laziness or incompetent programming.
It's no excuse, but probably the reason why they half ass so many of the entrances is because everybody just skips them anyway. I know I do. When I want to play, I want to PLAY. I don't want to take 3 minutes to watch an identical entrance I've already seen. They SHOULD make them better, because some people do want proper entrances, including myself, who doesn't even watch them very often, but that's probably why they don't.
Most of the time, the only time I keep entrances on is for when I make a guy champion, to see how the belts look on him, and I can assure you, Rhodes will never hold a title on my game.
We should be able to interrupt the entrances by actually attacking the wrestlers. It was in RAW & RAW2, so it's ridiculous that we cannot do it so many years on.
Would also love to be able to do post match beatdowns again too. They keep talking about how they want to make it feel as real & close to the Television product as possible, yet they continue to ignore vital features that other games have had that would allow this to happen.
