I didn't wanted to buy WWE12 because I already had a bad feeling about it after Corys (one of the worst game designers ever in my opinion) "lets blame it to the fans" and "lets play the damsel in distress" behaviour prior to WWE12 release.

Had also cancelled my preorder but then a friend of mine (I could literally kill him after that -.- ) kept bugging me to buy so "we can play together online" (which happened like once due to the crappy servers and since we are living in different countries a "come over so we can play" option wasn't feasible).

So I bought it, got extra frustrated through all the glitches and bugs from which most are still in the game and I definately know they will never fix them and after creating a few caws for the community and playing a bit universe, I put the game on the self and never moved it from there again.

With other words my experience was:

- throwed my money out for a beta version of a game
- got several broken promises from THQs about fixing stuff which they didn't and never will (as usual so nothing new there)
- got frustrated of having a beta version of a game that could had been actually good if enough effort would had been put into its development (they were too busy hyping it or talking about Randy Boredoms beard I guess)
- faced freezes, glitches, kelly kelly being everyones shadow being it a male or female caws in the match card
- got frustrated by wasting my time trying to enter a server I barely ever were able to connect to
- got castrated of being able to ever play with my friends online since it never works in a game that were supposed to have a working online environment that seriously the previous versions was "excellent" compared to wwe12s one
- got lied to the face about features that yukes isn't able to "accomplish" because of this and that (lies, lies, lies)
among other things.

I admit I will check on the forums to see how WW13 goes and does also because I'm curious if it will be indeed a upgraded or finished WWE12 version with one extra feature or two so they can call it a new game they put "effort" in it (yeah right).

Most of all so I can be amazed once again how everyone will be falling for their hype, empty promises and broken games so they can complain allover again after.

Should WWE 13 really turn out to actually work like a game is supposed to and be bugfree (who am I fooling here with my wishful thinking? :P ), I might consider to get it a year after its release when it will be thrown out for like 10 or 20€ but I highly doubt it.

So I voted No and it will be a No. Enough is enough.

See I agree with most of this, but I voted that I don't know. There is always the chance that things get fixed and upgraded properly, but from a history standpoint, not a good chance. If they change the way that they develope the game organizationally, then it could be better just from that standpoint alone. They really need to clean up their programming and testing of details, which there are a lot of them just due to the nature of the game. They've had a problem with including things in the game that just don't work.

Also, when you think about it......think about some of the best games you've played recently and whatever issues they had. When I think about that, some of the best games may have problems, but they don't seem to get in the way of the fun of the game the same way that they do in WWE 12. Maybe there's just a higher frustration factor for me with the WWE games because of all the genres that exist, wrestling is the one I'm most familiar with and can more easily find cracks in. See I can play a game like Skyrim and see most people complain about presentational things like well...people trying to talk to you even after you've been killed at their feet. Maybe some problems with jumping and temporary menu hangups. Thing is though....none of that really bothers me for some reason nearly as much as the issues that THQ left in WWE 12, and I think it is in large part because the SAME KIND of problems show up in the games every year. Sometimes the same exact problems even. Almost as if solving one problem brings up two more for them. Anyway....long rant, but I think there is a strong case for not believing that they'll bring us a solid game next year just due to the history of the problems in the series.

Nope, every year they prmoise bigger and better thing and all we get is a minor roster update, poor choices for DLC and fun things and move removed that were in previous games.

And after the joke that was the technical support on WWE '12 and THQ lack of respect for their loyal customers and fabase over the years, I've had enough of their constant lies and B.S people.

I've bought WWE Games since WWF Attitude, so Yes I will be getting WWE '13. I'm debating whether or not to pre-order it or just get it on release day. If I do pre-order it, i'm going to wait and see who has the best Pre-Order bonus(es) offered whether it's gamestop, bestbuy or amazon.com.

Since the only Major Complaints besides the Fixable issues from WWE12 that I've talked about, I've heard are dealing with Server issues, if you'd pay attention to the question I asked today about What WWF No Mercy, Wrestlemania 2000, Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain & Smackdown Vs Raw 2006 had in common. You'd believe I think they should remove Online Feature from WWE13 because THQ needs to focus on the Core of the game, not the Extra Online feature. What I mean by Removing Online features is the ability to have matches online, leave Community Creation in obviously though. It would Lighten up the Server anyways, so it would work better.

Edited by SKPTymMisery, 20 March 2012 - 09:57 AM


I would like perhaps instead of getting rid of online perhaps setting if possible Community Creations on a seperate set of servers than the rest of the online features. That way it would cut down the lag and other problems that we are seeing in WWE12.

I personally will not be buying WWE13 as soon as it hits shelves but perhaps a few months down the road.

Multiple factors depending.


firstly, they have to have a damn good roster, including DDP.

Second, they have to have at least attempted to test the game before release so we can avoid another bugfest.

Third, limits need to be lightened.

Finally, some of the people on this site need to have given it a good review.

I am probably going to buy it but I still can change my mind.

What disappoints me the most with WWE 12 is the 'Story' mode that they have. I really miss the story mode from games like HCTP and even the TNA Impact game which wasn't bad for a wrestling game.

I'm also not a huge fan of the WWE Universe mode. If they could combine Universe with a kick ass Story Mode, I would be first in line to get it. I'm an old school wrestling fan and still enjoy playing the games... :)

Yeah...I'm one of those that enjoy universe mode and its additions (when they work properly) to this year. If they don't do anything to drastically improve upon that mode then I have no real reason to buy the game. Roster doesn't matter so much because they'll never have a roster that I would want so there's no reason to let that make my decision.

I don't think they need to revamp the game... they need to add more stuff, more options, correct the issues that are going on right now and they should be good.

It's hard though when they design a game and by the time it releases, the storylines are useless... *shrugs*

Don't expect much from Cory Ledesma he is the Dixie Carter of Thq which means he doesn't know what the hell he is doing.

Hah...I see what you did there. Thankfully she has not much to do with actual wrestling operations. Cory on the other hand is lead design for the game....little more involved.

Probably not. Didn't get 12, and probably won't till it hits the $20/Greatest Hits mark.

Now if they did an All Stars 2, that'd be a different story.

I got every one from 2008 to 2010 (later traded them all in), but skipped SvR 2011 because of the negative feelings towards Universe mode. However, I got lured in to buying WWE '12 because of Lesnar being in (Vader also being in was a bonus). If Road Dogg makes the cut for WWE '13 as rumored, I'll pick it up. If he's not in, I'll pass.
