    This game will get your arm tired in less than 30mins. The contorls are worst then before. They improved the graphics but don't waste your time downloading this garbage.

    Has anyone here actually tested THIS game? No-one should really care about previous games... it's THIS game we want to know about.

    So how is it?

    Yeah, it's pretty bad. The EBA-like controls from 08 are gone. Instead, they give you a game that could be compared to the original Smackdown for the PS1. And even then, it's pretty watered down.

    Reversals are pretty much gone, and the game goes to whoever uses the quicker strikes. Basically, someone like Jeff, who uses quick jabs, can easily dominate the bigger guys, who use slower, more powerful attacks.

    Yes, it has more of everything, but it's more annoying that rewarding.

    Now, don't get me wrong. 08 wasn't some sort of masterpiece. However, it had a certain charm in its Paper-Scissor-Rock EBA styled gameplay that could've been built upon into a more fun experience. In this game, there''s only a few things you use the stylus for.

    - Click on screen for attacks.
    - Do a circle for grapples
    - Scratch insanely to get up after being knocked out.

    The PIN system is actually the most ridiculous thing in a game I've seen. To break from a pin, all you gotta do is tap the countdown number that shows on-screen. The more tired you get, the faster the count is. But if you have ever played an Ouendan/EBA game, you shouldn't have any trouble not getting pinned, even when you're all red.

    In the end, I like 08 a lot more than 09, although neither are much of a game anyways. I'm sure if you enjoy the SD games, you may get a kick out of this. It just doesn't have enough to justify even a download.

    It would be nice if someone could make a button hack, at least for the grappling part. I keep getting punched and/or grabbed before I can draw two circles.

    Didn't think it was possible. The last one just didn't feel like much of a game. I'm not sure what they were going for with that thing. And this is worse? [​IMG]

    Ah well, I'm not a wrestling fan, so it's no big whoop to me.

    This is so disappointing. The other problems are okay, but eliminating the counter system is bullshit. >_< This so horrible. It got everything I wanted but it was executed poorly [​IMG]

    This proves PSP > DS in the hardware capability department.

    I suppose. Not sure which is worse. Sony's horribly inept US marketing of a great system, or Nintendo fanboys who DC its positive elements. [​IMG]

    Truly i don't think it's very good to have such a game to use touch screens at all except choosing items on the menu or selecting options etc
    When will they learn?
