    Not normally a wrestling fan but i'll admit im quite excited by this title. The movies i've seen have been pretty damn sweet and i'm hoping EA dont screw it up. Gamespot have a new movie up and their preview sounds promising.

    It AKI and thats reason enough to be excited. No wrestling game released to this day can compare to the bliss of the N64 wrestling titles (No Mercy and Wrestlemania 2000). The only thing stopping me from buying the game right now is the lack of a create-a-wrestler. That is where most of my replay value is in these games and without that feature it may be relegated to a rental.

    However if the game does end up being great, I'll more than likely buy just to support an eventual sequel (and hopefully the inclusion of some form of a create-a-wrestler mode).

    Looking back i did have fun with the old Fire Pro Wrestling games [​IMG] and even as far back as Championship Wrestling on the Amiga!

    I havent played any of AKI's other games though..

    GamingAge have got their grubby hands on the finished PS2 version...bring it on!!

    "Well, they weren't kidding about the 60 fps being locked in. This game is SPEEDY."

    "Is it fun? Hell yeah. Definitely greater than the sum of its parts - Def Jam Vendetta has done a great job of combining AKI's trademark wrestling gameplay with the world of hip hop and added a roughneck brawling style all of its own. The Gamecube version is nearly completed as well (it's about a week behind the PS2 version) and definitely won't disappoint Nintendo fans. I wish I was still playing right now, and that's the best praise I can offer a game."

    I remember getting Fire Pro import for DC (online [​IMG]).. I thought it was such garbage. No offense, but DJV does look pretty decent, as in the MTV commercial for The Real World Red and Meth are playing some build of it and it looks very crisp..

    The Def Jam demo on last month's OPM disc was pretty good, better than AKI's Kinnukuman effort for the Gamecube. Wasn't interested in this at first but all the good pub will get me too buy it. The lack of a Create-a-wrestler is disappointing, as well as the fact that this was supposed to be a WCW game originally. I'm an old WCW mark. I always thought a killer WCW game could have helped the promotion a lot as they went downhill.

    I still think King of Colosseum is the best current wrestling game. The new Fire Pro should be coming for GC in the spring. There's always Giant Gram 2000 to fall back on.
