I just saw that the SD vs. Raw demo is on marketplace, and to be honest
this is the only game I've been wanting to buy in the next month or two.
Oh my gosh.
The demo looks unbelivably awesome.
THQ has finally done thing right as far as presentation.
I've always moaned and groaned about the cookie cutter experience when
playing their games. Although some things repeat, they finally have some variation
and more realilstic atmospheres.
1st, the entrances in the demo are insane. Although I am bored by entrances, these
are 'creepily' real looking. The closeup on Kanes face makes me say... "ewwwww....."
Lilian is in the ring announcing wrestlers, and during the 2nd entrance, the opposing wrestler
is at ringside.. instead of magically disappearing.
There seem to be multiple animations used as the grapplers are getting ready at the bell ring.
I've seen 2 different starts to the matches so far.
Gameplay is much faster than I was anticipating. Also, the wrestler that is on a 'streak' can get
fatigued as well... this is brilliant.
The people in the crowd (although you can see some repeats) look like actual individuals
sitting at ringside. This looks brilliant.
I've only played 1 game and watched the cpu play a game, but the controls (although many)
seem to make for fluent gameplay.
I am loving this demo, and it seems to have everything I've been wanting in a wrestling game.
Cant wait for the full version to come out and...
"Mrrrrrrrrrr Kennedy. . . . . . . . . . . . .Kennedayyyyyyyyyyyy"
What do you guys think?
