is, to a lesser extent, the No Mercy/Wrestlemania 2000
of today. There are 30 Superstars plus whatever DLC comes out. You can't forget about the create a wrestler mode either (which, I believe, you can have up to 15 of). While the match types are slim, the ones they have are plenty to keep us entertained for hours. The game is over the top and I think that is what makes it so enjoyable. It doesn't take itself seriously and the moves you can pull off are just ridiculous.
I actually consider this a fighting game more than anything. You CAN pin opponents, but typically you will get your opponent's health flashing red, hit your finisher, and K.O. them. You can also pull off combos of different types (air juggles?!). It all depends on what wrestler you choose.
There are four types of wrestlers:
can fling off the ropes and also boost off the opponents chest to the turnbuckle.
(Eddie Guerrero, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Rey Mysterio, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, and Shawn Michaels)
is hard to take down and can bounce the opponent in the air and knock them out of the ring with ease.
(Andre the Giant, Big Show, and Kane)
have charged up strikes and inflict more damage with their strong attacks.
(CM Punk, Drew McIntyre, Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Randy Orton, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Sgt. Slaughter, Sheamus, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Ultimate Warrior, and Undertaker)
can chain together grapples and have chargable grapples.
(Bret "Hit Man" Hart, Edge, Jack Swagger, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Mr. Perfect, The Miz, and Triple H)
