This time around, the path to the Heavyweight Championship
will be even more difficult as the line between friend and
foe is not always clear. Create your own superstar character
and take them on a continuing journey of deception and vindication,
including the highest quality cut scenes offered so far in

to bring a new level of realism to the series. There are also
new WWE Legends for you to play, including Hulk Hogan, Ultimate

wrestling market, but Day of Reckoning 2 is the best
we've seen so far for the Gamecube. If wrestling games are
your thing, then you won't be disappointed by THQ's latest
offering for the Gamecube.
