        i got this game on saturday and i won my forst match as jeff hardy, and i toughed it out instead of watching the video's.

        a few things that are a major dissapointment
        - season mode is now 24/7 mode and is more complicated
        - automatically regaining stamina
        - butttons are very awquard
        - same commentry as wwe smackdown vs raw 2007

        still a must buy and if there is a next one they should change the commentry

        excellent cast of charactors but a little on the short side

        still a must but for any wwe fan


         A little ring rusty

        Although not a disaster, there are too many things wrong with this game for me to give it anything more than 3 stars. I won't bore you by listing all of them, I will outline the major problem with the latest WWE title.

        The new 24/7 season mode is a backward step from last year's PS2 release, which basically aims to combine last year's pointless GM mode with the career mode. As a Superstar, you are basically dragged through storylines which you have no impact on irrespective of your actions. There is no freedom to explore the backstage areas and carve out your own destiny and you feel as though you are going through the motions. Further to this there are instances where you receive voicemails and emails which mention your current feud, but get the name wrong of the wrestler you're feuding with! Furthermore, I am sick of being put into meaningless tag matches in wrestling games. I know this is a personal complaint and others may enjoy this aspect, and also it's not a problem specific to this game as it has happened in the last few WWE titles, but I would think that you would be given the choice of whether to be in a tag team or not.

        Despite this major flaw (and many others), the gameplay is still good and multi-player modes will still provide you with hours of fun.

        Overall, a little disappointing for the first WWE title on the PS3, but still worth a look for WWE fans. Hopefully the problems will be ironed out for next year.

         Good game, bad storylines

        This game has some good features compared to last 2007, the out of ring features are cool. but the storylines in the career mode are poor and repetitve, this could have been a great game but as i ound with the last 2 editions, the story line is poor.

         Good attempt but its more of the same.

        i am not gonna beat around the bush if you played the smackdown series before then this is a great game however if your like me and have ever smackdown game then it unfortunatly is not the best version.

        GAME PLAY 3/5
        points that let this down is the fact that they boast new features that are the same as precious years with a name change and a slight gameplay tweak. for example. EXTREME RULES is just a hardcore match with a tweak of gameplay its nothing new although it is a kool feature. the 1 thing thats new which is part of the tweaking is crowd handing out the weapons. i hate the new submission feature, the theory is sound but you shouldnt be penalised for applying the grip too hard, it should be up to your opponent to break the grip not because you have applied a hold too hard. another gameplay decision is the decision to make wrestlers stick to some resemblance to there character. for example certain moves with a chair are only avalible to use if your characters gimmik lets him. which is not how wrestling works i understand limiting the undertaker doing any sitting sentons with a chair because in the real wwe you wouldnt see him do that BUT the guidlines are too harsh, and why cant everyone steal finishing moves now you have to be a particuler type to do that now. overall the game play is dissapointing, it can be fun and im not saying that what you get isnt good but for game play thats a let down.

        Graphics 4/5 loses 1 mark for pretty much being supped up versions of the same, stunning but the same errors such as collision detection with the hair is still prominant.

        Sound 3/5 this is dissapointing aswell. the commentry is exactly the same as last year, its dull, repetative, and sounds nothing like how they react to a TV match. i was watching a making TNA Impact game video and Don west along with Mike tenay were realy going for it. commenty has so much potential but this game disspoints in that department as it has done for years.
        this would have been 4/5 if not for a feature that was not included in this release. the xbox 360 players get a nice and long overdue feature which is to add there own music collection to the in ring theme musics that allows them to create wrestlers of Past and in other companys with there current theme music or there WWE music which is readaly avalible on CD's on Play.com this feature should have been included and its just a slap in the face that THQ gave x-box a better extra.

        Online Play 4/5 lacks voice chat ATM but i hope that is more of a PSN fix than anything.

        FUN FACTOR 5/5 as with all SvR games these are damm fun and you soon couldnt care less about the flaws in the game when you get going. i feel ever since they started releasing this game yearley they have been rushed to adapt new things into the engine and that in turn leaves allot of problems lerking however no one can deny in a year with the regig and graphical improvements that this is a good game. i would hope with the PSN avalible that new content will be addable to the game such as move sets and the song ripping feature. i would say for SVR 2009 make that the last in the series with lots of dedicated network features and downloads including wrestler updates and work on a new game. this Engine is still fun but for how long.

        Overall 4/5 with my general thoughts that its the same game tweaked slightly but well worth the purchase for you first HD wrestling game. if your rich enough to have a 360 aswell get the 360 version. and everyone should give the Wii version a go.
