Re: Is Here Comes the Pain still the best WWE video game?

I fucking loved Here Comes the Pain. I used to get baked and play that game for hours. I was soo pissed when my disc finally gave out because it'd been played so much.

The roster was awesome and it gave you a ton of fun things to do. Who doesn't remember loving people fall off the cell?

If you enjoy the game it doesn't matter what the internet tells you.
What does that even mean, of course a 10 year old game would be scrutinized if it were released today. If you look at what HCTP did with its technology in 2003 and how it built upon the previous game and then compare it to what WWE 13 did with its technology in 2012 and how it built upon the previous game, it pretty much makes WWE 13 the worst wrestling game in existence. Obviously HCTP will be less feature-rich than WWE '13, but for every step forward WWE '13 took, it also took about 40 back. HCTP's faults are outweighed by it's positives, WWE 13's positives are outweighed by it's faults. The amount of resources available to a video game company (nevertheless a multi-million dollar one) in 2012 (and now 2013) should pretty much guarantee that it would make a better game than the year before (and especially one from 2003), but in WWE 13's case, they didn't.

And IMO, SYM is better than HCTP, but by a slim margin.

Day Of Reckoning 2 was better. Vertical Exploder was the best move in that game. But best WWE game of all time, Here Comes The Pain

Re: Is Here Comes the Pain still the best WWE video game?

Here Comes The Pain was good, Smackdown 2 was good as well. Its a toss up for me, Obviously Here comes the pain had better gameplay, but smackdown 2 had a great yet really long season mode, and i love the rankings system..both games are amazing, i cant choose just 1

- No Mercy

- Here Comes The Pain

That's my order.

HCTP's season mode is still fun to play through 10 years later.

and yeah HCTP's fast-paced gameplay > today's slow "realistic (lol no)" gameplay.
This sums it all up fairly well

Re: Is Here Comes the Pain still the best WWE video game?

Yup. Here Comes The Pain is indeed the best wrestling game that has yet to be topped. WWF No Mercy, WWF WrestleMania 2000, Smackdown Shut Your Mouth, and RAW vs Smackdown 2006 are also incredible games.
