People who play any wrestling games might contend that the last great games made for this genre were made on the Nintendo 64 when the WWF was still separate from ECW and WCW. Since that time, the WWF has changed to WWE, ECW is gone as well as the WCW. Outside of the 'other' wrestling on cable television, the WWE is mainly all there is. With that said, it is probably one of the most entertaining venues around. Also, they have successfully put out subpar material since the emersion of the Gamecube. Every year the games seem to sell well, but the overall sentiment of the gaming experience is generally low. People have to buy this game because there really isn't anything better. That's a terrible situation to have to run into.
