No energy meter! huh? Why?
Because that was very annoying to play with. Very annoying. Thank God it's gone. I'm going to be playing it this weekend so I'll give my own little review if I remember.

Don't get me wrong, the limb damage idea is neat. it is just...

....not sure the best solution is to scrap some sort of health/energy altogether.
I like some health meter or indicator or something. Without one, I feel like it is incomplete as a fighter. that's just me though.

The game is horrible, it's been on my shelf gathering dust for about a month now, when at first I was playing it all the time, it's just so boring.

It seemed like everyone was in agreement about SvR 2008 failing to meet expectations, so I posted some images of past and current games.

i miss my dreamcast.

SVR08 is a pretty damn good game. My only cons:

- Wrestlers run/move a bit too slow
- Fatigue factors in too early. People holding limbs 3 minutes into the match
- After a few matches, it gets a bit boring
- Almost impossible to pull off strong grapple moves on Legend difficulty

Other than that, damn good game. B+.

Oh wait, one more MAJOR con, the worst of them all.

PLAYER TARGETTING IS A B*TCH. They need to bring back a button to change your focus. I'm not kidding, it's terrible. Atrocious. You accidently grapple your partner way too many times, even if you're not even locked onto them.

Yes! I don't have my 360 right now, so that's all I've been playing for the last few days. That game is the best football game i've ever played besides Madden 05.

About SVR 2008, Should i buy this or rent it first?
