This game looks hot better not be CGI

I have hight hopes for this game because the other wrestling franchise (Smackdown Vs Raw) has become a yearly mediocre series and has left the great roots of the first title in the series along with horrible graphics on PS3 and 360.

TNA looks to have a much better and more realistic gameplay with graphics that are ages better than Smackdown's.
Still, the fact that it's also coming for Wii suggests that the gameplay won't take advantage of next-gen hardware and the only difference between PS3/360 versions and Wii/PS2 ones might be in graphics.

To be honest though, the best wrestling game series ever were the N64 No mercy/wrestlemania games, and this game is supposedly the spiritual successor to those games.

They are however, taking a little poetic liscence with the characters Abyss for example seems to have lost a few pounds in te game and Angle is looking particularly ripped. Anyhoo, I am looking forward to this game for quite sometime and I hope it is on a par with the old N64 wrestling games.

IMO, the WWE games have been on a steady decline since the N64, they are like the Tony Hawk franchise, a yearly series with minimum updates. Don't get me wrong, they are alright, but each one offers nothing more than a fractional improvement from the last and sometimes that's only in the graphics dept.

What always got me was that they could have easily went down the DLC route and release new characters/storylines regularly for a small fee, but then again, WWE wants the larger revenue from the fans every year, which is guaranteed.

So far the visuals destroy Smackdown vs Raw 2008. I want to see this game in motion.

True. The visuals kill SvR though the last shot (Abyss) looks rather CG like.

As for gameplay, here you go:

It starts with live footage but gameplay is shown in the middle and it destroys SvR in terms of animations and physics as well.

I'm guessing the WWE fans were the ones that disagreed.

EDIT: Yep! I was right! =)

Hope the gameplay lives up to the screenshots. Full motion video will definitely reveal more about this game. If it runs smooth with graphics like that, we're in for real treat. I don't usually go for wrestling games, but these visuals are impressive.
