    I've just played this game - it sucks!
    There is no wrestling, it's just klicking some stuff on the screen. I can't even decide to run or to jump from the turnbuckle, there is just pointing on punch/grapple .... oh my [​IMG]




    hey Yuke's please bring TOUKON RETSUDEN for DS, a Toukon Retsuden 3 (PSX) port should be possible

    It looks very nice for a DS game but i was mega bored playing it just played two bouts and turned it off Yawnorama. just tapping and selecting stuff takes the fun out of it i wanna feel like im beating the shit outta someone not just selecting it to do so

    You've got it all wrong: it's a Tactical Wrestling RPG!

    out of nowhere....
    Graphice are real nice for a DS game, animation is very smooth, but OH MY, the control method... who thought that would be a good idea. Choice of three moves and mostly counters. Not really in the players hands as to how to attack, and selecting moves from a choice of three really breaks up the flow of a match, wrestling games are about chaining moves together really smoothly from a multitude of of moves the like not found in any other fighting game. As playerbility goes this is bad, unless im missing something, from a graphics standpoint is impressive for a DS. A missed chance..... missed by a mile.. [​IMG]

    Yes, this is a really bad game on the gameplay side, and as soon as Gamespot allows it, I'm writing up a review to try to prevent people from buying this game.

    I've not even played it yet and I knew when it was announced that it would be bad. Console games do not port well to the DS. To play this on a handheld you'd after play it on a PSP.

    they should've ported the controls from the PSX version.

    Damn, was hoping this wouldn't suck as much as it does. Also, The Undertaker has aged quite a bit. No more Phenom, more like Fossil...

    This is the first-ever licensed pro wrestling game for DS released anywhere in the world, just under 3 years after launch.

    PSP is far better for these kinds of games. Keep in mind the ISOs for Smackdown games are nearly or over 1GB. You will need quite large memory stick to "acquire" those much better PSP versions. Still best on Xbox 360 though.

    I disagree, the game engine is fine, the chosen control method sucks. else it would be a great game. Its not the platform that count so much, its all in the game design, this game had the potential, it was just chucked away on a bad control system....

    What a crappy game [​IMG] I was expecting something like the wrestling games on N64 that I had heaps of fun with. It's like a semi-interactive wrestling match I wouldn't even call it a game.

    Knowing some of the DS games, you should be glad it isn't a card game [​IMG]

    This game was just terrible, which saddens me.
