It looks like WWE's next video game will have an improved game engine as announced on a status update on Facebook.
I've always wondered what a WWE game could be if they truly put time and effort into it with decent tech. Most of the games these days are either really over the top like the most current one or are held back by bad tech causing horrible things like the characters clipping through the ropes and what not. A game that really put current tech to use could be really good. The wrestling games of the PS1 and N64 era did this and they were far and away the best ones but as the consoles got more powerful the games didn't adopt the tech and just stayed in the category of cheap cash ins instead of really fun games they used to be.
I agree man i loved Smackdown 1 and 2 on the ps1 but these newer ones have not caught my attention.
About freaking time!
All it took was for people to not buy it as much. Now they are announcing new tech..... lmao. Greedy jerks.
The COD of Wrestling games I'm hopeful that they bring us back the PS2 days
I had some really good times with HCTP :(
You have to watch their words though. They say improved. Not new.
What this means is that they will add one or two graphical features using the same engine, in the meantime they'll be counting the money...
the only thing can save the smackdown series is if they completely overhaul the whole thing and start from scratch
I hope they get rid of the name Smackdown vs. Raw altogether. At this point the title reminds me of a stale franchise.
something tells me that WWE wont actually LET the fans pic the cover star but they will choose whos on the cover and say the fans picked it.
That's a good point. Much like how Cyber Sunday was set up.
I purchase the game every year and i dont have complains about any of them except 2008, but an improve engine will be welcome. Smackdown vs Raw name cannot be change it will ruin the series
You are part of the problem. You are why games like Cod and this crap doesn't evolve. If u wanna keep playing the same thing every year then don't buy the new 1, keep your old one. Then maybe more publishers would actually try to innovate.
first of all i don't play COD and i buy the wrestling games, because am a Wrestling Fan and not having the game is like not watching wrestling every week. The Smackdown vs Raw games improve every year am not sure what your talking about being the same for all years, get your facts straight before talking. If you are not a wresting fan you will not enjoy playing a game like this. people like you putting negative bubbles on someones else opinion is what took my 5 bubbles i had away. Your probably going to bubble this comment down as well THANKS. cya Improvements from 2010 to 2011 *New Object Physics (if you dont know what it is, then you should not be replying to me in the first place) *New Muscle Flexibility *New Hell in a Cell Match *New TLC match *New Tables Match *New Ladder Match *Graphics look better than 2010 *New Road To Wrestlemania Free Roaming *Improve Community Creations *More DLC Characters *New Create-a-Top Rope Finisher *Improve Create-a-Finisher *Improve Paint Tool The biggest update of them all OVER 70 PLAYABLE WRESTLERS AND DIVAS
2011 yes was a good game I believe. I was actually very tempted to buy it when it launched. They just kinda slowed it all down for awhile. 2008, 2009 I know where great games, but without online mode for me. I had nothing to do with them. As they were not the most enjoyable replayable games.
so it will be the same lame gameplay on a new engine
not a NEW engine, basicallt an IMPROVED engine, big difference
