Final Breakdown


Repetitive punch-kick gameplay in a fighting game masquerading as a wrestling title: boring.


Graphically, the game's improved, which is about all the improvement the game has. 

Sound and music:

The one-liners from characters are okay, but the music is well done. It's a shame that most of the tracks aren't attached to a better game.

AI and Difficulty:

The AI is boring and permanently set on "cheese", repeating the same few moves over and over rather than making the matches interesting.

Controls and Interface:

The controls are still incredibly simple, such that in 2 or 3 matches you'll have mastered the title. Which says something about the game's difficulty and the depth of the engine; it has neither.


It's not worth it.
