BEST WRESTLING GAME ON GAMECUBE.       Product Reviews
by: Anonymous       on: 02-Feb 2006

It is also better than WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW on the PlayStation 2,i did have WWE SVR but i have unlocked everything,beat it and enjoyed it it was a little disappointing so i gave it to my friend Ashley(10 years old) who plays it a lot on multi-player mode against his little brother Daniel who is 5.But WWE Day Of Reckoning 2 is better than SVR in everyway except sometimes the actual fighting.This maybe not better than WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2006 though.I have played this 3 times on my cousins GameCube.WWE DOR2 is better than the N64 hit "WWF No Mercy!" and the PS1 hit "WWF SmackDown! 2:Know Your Role!" but they are old news now anyway,there is no WWF anymore it was disbanded by WWE in some case gainst World Wildlife Fund(also WWF) and so the name has changed as well as away to change stuff around i.e. Stories,arenas,RAW is WAR broke down the name to RAW etc.
WWF/WWE games are impressive on PS2 and GameCube but they lack on XBox(WWF RAW,WWE RAW 2 and WWE WrestleMania 21).the WWF/WWE "WrestleMania" titles also lack the only decent one was N64`s WWF WrestleMania 2000 which is the second best WWF game on N64.sorry i couldn`t explain WWE DOR2 but other reviewers can-Here i will just list out some WWF/WWE games on all 5th and 6th gen consoles(i might miss one)

Get Ready to Rumble!       Product Reviews

Prior to purchasing this game, I was using Wrestlemania 19. I must say, what a major difference between the two. Nearly every aspect about this game has improved from its predecessors. Anything from Gameplay to Story Mode, Create-A-Wrestler, fighting system, you name it. There are some changes that are remarkable and yet challenging in some parts.

Lets begin with the GAMEPLAY. The wrestling moves are a lot more realistic. For example, my finished is the pedigree. This move is unbelievably cool. Your wrestler jumps in the air about 6' with your opponent and comes crashing down onto the mat. Phenomenal. The games features TONS of new moves which are crazy. Two, as opposed to the traditional one spirit meter for your wrestler, there is now Stamina and Spirit meters. Be careful. This is where the game become very realistic. You must preserve your wrestlers stamina because you can't just keep pounding away like in previous games. Everytime you run or attack your opponent, he loses more and more stamina. And when the meter gets to near the bottom "RED ZONE", your wrestler will just stand still in the ring with his head down and his hands at his legs resting until the meter begins to go up again. Also the spirit system you must be careful with. If your spirit gets to blue or at "Danger", chances are you will lose the match. The submission system has been completely reworked. When you put your opponent into submission mode, using the C-stick, you have four options. You can select, "Submit" which will give you the submission meter where you must tap "A" repeatedly to bring the arrow in the meter to the submit "blue" area. Or you can select "Drain" which drains your opponents stamina. Three is "Rest Hold" which drains your opponents physical strength. Fourth is "Taunt", which lowers your opponents spirit. Be careful though, when your first perform a submission move, your opponent can choose one of the four options too, and if you both choose the same thing, he'll kick right out of it. The matches are much more realistic, with the new AI Sytem. The computer has its own mind and strategies to make the fights more tough instead of one-sided.

The Create-A-Wrestler mode is much more enhanced with more apparel, more moves (though you have to work your way through story mode to unlock the rest of the moves), better entrance effects. The Story mode is very diverse. As you go through, occasionally, the computer will give you two options. For example: 1. Go after Edge and shut him up or 2. Go after the Intercontinental Title. I thought that was good for a change, choose your wrestler's path. It doesn't alter it much, but a couple matches may change.

Overall, this game is really utterly phenomenal. I enjoy this game very much and think it is one of the best wrestling games I have ever owned. The graphics are nearly 100% accurate to real-life faces and body outlines. Everything about this game makes you feel like you are in the ring with the real WWE Superstars.


Quite Good Overall Really       Product Reviews
by: Anonymous       on: 06-Dec 2005

In a somewhat overly bitter manner, I will list the cons of this game and then pepper in the good. There are plenty of match types, but the AI on fatal 4-way and triple threat matches is very aggrivating. They quickly degenerate into 3-on-1 or 2-on-1 matches. This is increasingly mind-numbing when in season mode you have to fight a fatal 4-way steel cage match. I do have a bit of a short fuse but that match (even on easy) was far far too difficult and aggrivating.
Season mode, while cool in that it takes off from the last DoR, and isn't just a rehashing of a story line the WWE has already used, does lack. You don't get to choose Raw or Smackdown, you are "dating" that crank Stacy Kiebler through the whole thing. You don't get to choose any other diva or even create a chick (or, dare I say, a dude) to "date." You do get to make choices, but in the end they have very little effect on the path of your superstar.
Create-a-Wrestler is rather nice. Although, the body base is the exact same. The superstar's physiques are very different from Ric Flair to John Cena, but your Created Superstar is stuck with just one physique. One, may I add, that appears to be from some strung out junkie. Too bad if you want to make an ultra muscled superstar, it will just look like a poorly drawn comic book brute.
The Create-an-Entrance is still lacking. Anyone who has played Raw 2 for the X-Box knows how extremely well done this feature can be done. Especially on the titantron, you are stuck with a real superstar's video or the boring WWE symbol. I won't go into it too much, but if you ever get the chance to fiddle with the X-Box games, do. You will see.
Another thing X-Box has over Gamecube in CAW is that the pants don't look like highwaters. The pants blend onto the shoes like a normal human being's clothes. As I write, I realize how good the X-Box's CAW is and it would take too long to go into all the reasons why.

Well, other than that the game is really good. It is definitely better than the last DoR so the series is definitely getting better. The new submission features and legends like Bret Hart are great.

This game is nice. I really love legands so if it's ok I wanna talk about them. First off, Austin, all you have to do is play 5 1-1s vs the computer and try to win by pin or submit. Any way, he has the second greatest stats I've seen (after Angel ughhh) he is at 93 stats and can whoop a** & give da finga (sorry for that screwed up language).

Next up we have my persnal favorite MANKIND. The hardcore legand (and first ever hardcore champion) is here and after ten MORE matches (not 5 more, a full 10 more) but it's worth it. He is at 59 and is missing everything but mr.socko(cnat take it out which stinks) and Barbie (remember, that 2 by 4 wrapped in barb-wire). He has the MANKIND music, the scarry type one which WOULD be OK but they only have the entrance and not the totally diffrent win music. Still(actually they don't even have the "The time has come..." thing where he talks) they DO have very detaled looks even that hair missing on his head.

Next we have Bret Hart (20 more matches).Well the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be probley is cool but I can't get him! I did 20, I don't know if you can not knock some one out to do it or if you can't hit rematch but I did both alot.I'll keep trying though!!!

4th is the Rock the peoples champ and, oh you know the rest. If you get to show #20 in story, you getim. He can be hard to get but not as hard as...

The Hulkster, Oh Brother, oho. He has the yellow balding look and can be won by finishing story mode. He is very detaled, look on the back to see a picture.

OTHER STUFF
sorry one more thing. WHY WAS ~WAYAH! (ultimate Warrior) TAKEN OUT, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AWSOME.

It's fun but I can't win a last man standing matches cause day take forever.

Go get it really....now...GO.....REALLY!...NOWWW!!!!
