It seemed very much like a game worth waiting for. If they couldn't wait to put out a game worth 60 dollars, then I'll wait until the 30 dollar game they made to get down to the right price.
If you're in a big hurry, plenty of people are disappointed in the game. You can get it within a week at a local gamestop. It'll be 11 bucks lower if you have a power up pro card.
I'm not in a hurry though. I'll rent it to check it out and then buy it on Live when it goes on sale with the DLC being discounted too.
I'm excited about the improvements in game play I've heard about and like the modern roster. Edit a Superstar is a wish come true for moat of us. Created characters will finally not be compromised by the crotch blur. The fact they embraced the idea of importing logos is kind of mind blowing.
So yeah, they crushed it on some long needed/wanted improvements and that excites me for the future of the series.
But losing so much like entrance animations, tons of created options from Divas to moves, 75 created character slots and so much more is a big universal negative.
And as a matter of opinion I'd really enjoyed the story modes the last few years. These showcases have potential to be great but none of the DLC really interests me so it's very limited at 2 story's to follow. Then you have what's said to be a shoddy career mode, and the single play non exhibition experience doesn't justify the price tag.
So yeah, when I weigh it with the entertainment I'll get against the money I'll spend? Not happening at full retail.
