The scoop on IGN's early review of Raw.

I really detest all wrestling games, but I'm sure many of you XBox owners/ WWF fans are wondering if you want to shell out $50 for the game. So here is my brief synopsis of the review.

The Good:
  • Best Presentations in any wrestling game, hands down.
  • Superb Graphical detail, excellent animations, and great camera work.
  • Music is of the highest quality.
  • Gameplay is phenominal. A.I. very challenging.
  • Create-a-Wrestler has more options than any other wrestling game.
The Bad:
  • No custom soundtracks. (but promised for next year's version.)
  • No career mode. (very disapointing)
  • No crowd fighting, but you can go around the ring and onto the stage.

All in all, they gave the game a 9.1. In my opinion, this looks like the ultimate multiplayer wrestling game to date.

Thanks For the review, I've had this game preordered since last fall. Multiplayer is all I really care about anyway, so it looks like I can finally put away WWF No Mercy once I get this one.

I really haven't liked a Wrestling game since WCW&NWO: Revenge.

The XBox has a hard drive which, among saving games and speeding up load times, allows you to rip songs from your favorite cd to the hard drive.

Certain games such as Tony Hawk 2x, Amped, and Project Gotham Racing allow you to incorperate the ripped songs into the game. For instance in PGR, you can race down the track to your favorite tunes instead of listening to the default game music. Upcoming games in March that are known to be using this feature are Tony Hawk 3 and Rallisport Challenge.

It's really a cool way to give XBox owners unlimited options when it comes to music during gameplay.

I forgot to mention the sound effects are also nicely done.
