The sound effects -- while a little drab -- get the job done, but the buzzer that signifies a new wrestler entering the ring in the royal rumble mode will drive you absolutely insane with its frequency.
If only there was a more balanced approach to the punch-grapple system, and more characters, and a better way to handle the "partner" feature, and let's face it... an improvement on everything else, then "fun" might have actually found a way to sneak itself in here.
This game is horrible. THQ's long line of successful wrestling games has just gone down the drain. This game was just an overall extremely poor attempt at a game, and a laughable attempt at a wrestling game.
