Re: Why does WWE games suck for you

After SVR 2008 the games changed a whole lot for the worse and are actually not fun to play.
The reason why the later games like SvR 2007, HCTP, SvR 1, and even WWE crush hour where so great is because they captured the excitement of pro wrestling but also kept in mind that they were making a game, now they try to make the game too realistic. The moves aren't as devastating, the gameplay is much slower, there is no good soundtracks for the games, you can't go back stage then go to madison square or the parking lot etc. Also keep in mind that it's a PG product and there is a whole bunch of new wrestlers that will never be 'over' with me, except Dolph Ziggler

---------------------------------------

In 2008 WWE lost it's soul by going PG. Thank god for TNA, That's all I have to Say.

The gameplay is just too poor. Totally unrealistic. Halfway through a finishing move, someone just runs into you and both guys fall wildly. It's not fun. Will someone use the smooth and realistic AKI engine for fuck sake!?!?

09 isn't really a bad game, but WWE 13 is a much better game. The controls in 2009 along with the gameplay speed, are the two biggest problems I have with the game. Gameplay speed was something I had a problem with from SVR 2008-2011 because it was too slow, but at least they finally changed it in WWE 12.

Re: Why does WWE games suck for you

Smackdown vs RAW 2009 may not be as bad as Smackdown vs RAW 2008 but it's still a boring game. I have no idea why they didn't put GM Mode in the game. A GM Mode in Smackdown vs RAW 2009 would have owned since it had a great roster that year. But yeah, the game is pretty boring once you finish the Road to WrestleMania mode.

The last story mode I played was 07 the last in my opinion of the decent games . The rtwm are just terrible as I can't be anyone I want and universe is rather pointless.

I'll be interested to see if Tna puts another game out and how it compares. If it even close to being fun then WWE look out.

Agreed, especially when the new Career Mode they put in 09 turned out to be one of the worst and most pointless game modes of the entire WWE games series. At least today we have Universe Mode, but they should take some mechanics from GM Mode, and incorporate them into Universe Mode, like giving certain wrestlers storylines.

Re: Why does WWE games suck for you

I enjoy(ed) WWE 13, although I think in retrospect there's not enough depth in it. I'm an offline player (For fighting games) and there really isn't much after 'Attitude Mode' to do. Universe Mode seems cool but you quickly understand the formula and realise it's not exactly organic or dynamic.

I genuinely couldn't tell you how happy I'd be if they put in a season mode again, not a fucking RTWM because you can only really get fun out of it once and also scrap having a 'theme' for the game. Just give me a game with today's full roster, much much MUCH more diverse move-set options, Season Mode, not to rely on nostalgia, also the weapon physics of SVR2010 felt really good.

1 more thing, I feel like because online is now a key feature they're removing stuff that used to be in the game to make it 'fair' which is bollocks if you're used to it offline, like certain 'cheap' moves or whatever.

Re: Why does WWE games suck for you

Well, online is garbage and will always be. Instead of actually wrestling you find your opponents stomping you at perfect intervals so you can't get up and taunting over and over again to get a finisher.

IMO they need to stop putting so much emphasis into a story mode, or any kind of special mode.

If they would just give me a Universe mode that carried realistic, long lasting storylines I think I could play the game all year.

In order to actually get cutscenes that make sense in WWE 13, you need to do hours of setup for Universe mode, and then you just get the same cutscenes over and over. Also, stop trying to break tag teams up. The Road Warriors aren't meant to fight with eachother and break up.
