Although not that much of a fan of wrestling anymore I still do enjoy this game, it is simply a lot of fun to play. The graphics on the Gamecube are pretty good and much improved over the previous game.
New to this game is the story mode where you create a character and take him from the start of his career right up until he becomes WWE Champion. The story mode is quite varied and depending on how you do in certain matches will determine your route to the WWE title. The game keeps all of the match types from before as well as adding in a few new ones.
Gameplay wise it is basically the same as the older game but with the addition of a submission system where you have to tap the A button quickly to either escape or apply more pressure. With this feature comes more focus on the region specific damage and it certainly adds to the game.
I feel however that the game is best played in multi-player though and it can be a lot of fun when you have three friends over all fighting each other for the win.
Overall a very fun experience and all wrestling fans should pick up a copy!
