  1. You won't even believe how nearly identical the game is to it's PS2 counterpart. If ever there was the "perfect port", this is very close to what you'll get.
  2. It's arguably the best fighter/wrestling title out for any portable console, is the best ever in the long history of the title for PS2, and has a great gameplay experience that it's hard to imagine any wrestling fan not immediately falling in love with this game.
  3. The complete package. There is so much content here that you won’t believe you are playing it on the PSP.
  4. This is one of the best wrestling games created to date. [Mar 2006, p.93]
  5. If you don't already own the PS2 gmae, this is a must-have. If you do, then it's not quite so essential, but a quality grappler nontheless. [Jan 2006, p.102]

    What we have here is about as close to a perfect-port of such a massive title that we're going to get.
  7. The gameplay and modes are identical to the PS2 version in every way I can think to evaluate them. The minigames are completely worthless, but they don’t really get in the way of the actual game so I’m going to pretend like they don’t exist and treat the game as if it was an exact PS2 port.
