         Don't bother

        Bought this game because I love wrestlin. BIGGEST FAN lol. But this gmae lacks everythin, takes 4 hrs to complete, too short. Limited match types, no ladders, tables, cages, hell in a cell, not even a royal rumble. literally single, tag, hardcore (which i must add is only 2 chairs... *yawn*. absolute waste of money

         A step backwards

        This game is way behind other formats as it loses so many features in the quest for a new fun control system for wii. Its not a complete waste of time as it can be fun to play for short periods but has no long term one player appeal at all.

         Should have been good

        We can all imagine what a wwe game should be like on the wii.With punching and lifting up the remote to lift up the oponents,BUT NO!They are wanting you to swing the wii remote about like a baby and it will get frustrating when it dosent respond to the mindlessly waving you will do.I gave it 2*'s because despite all the abuse its fun to get a mate round(like all wii games)and wrestle each other because you will both have a good time!Instead of buying this go buy zelda or mario and sonic.

         Poor Show

        Well, this game was bought and returned with a matter of a day. Played this on the Xbox 360 at my friend's house, and loved every minute of the game. But the Wii version simply stinks, and here's why:

        - No match variation
        - Poor controls
        - Graphically inadequate for a 7th generation console.

        So, let's address each negativity in a bit of detail.

        Some of the WWE's main match types, such as Hell in a Cell and Royal Rumble are completely missing. I'm sure if the ECW brand wasn't included then the Hardcore match would also be missing.

        Apparently you have to move the Wiimote as if you were actually performing a wrestling move, however every single move you want to make can instead be represented by shaking the Wiimote. As you can guess, fun does not ensue, but confusion and the regular "I didn't want him to do that!".

        The graphics are seriously terrible. It's like they've been watered down and the animations are just terrible.

        If anyone can actually justify buying and enjoying this hopeless piece of trash of a game then please do, but at the time of writing I fail to understand how this is the 7th best selling Wii game.

        There's so much that needs to be fixed:
        - Maybe add more moves as downloads to an SD card via WiiConnect24?
        - How about abandon the Wii controls altogether as it obviously didn't pay off.
        - Bring this up to standard with the Xbox and PS3 versions. The Wii is the top selling console, treat its users with respect.

        I actually think that this game is rather patronising, and represents a dumbed down version of the game, because the developers assume that people who buy Wiis only want to play mini games and cannot be bothered with career modes, so they just do without.

        This game needs to be seriously reconsidered for its next Wii iteration. Nintendo should actually test 3rd party games before they liscence them for use on their consoles.

        Please remove the Seal of Quality from this game until the developers get their act together. They need a Stone Cold Stunner.

         A work in progress

        Can't help but feeling this game isn't the finished article, I'd expect more from the next installment in the Wii series. If your thinking of buying it I'll give a quick rundown of the game:

        There are 5 match modes (thats about 5% of the number of modes you'll find in this game in every other console format):
        * single
        *hardcore (the only weapon i've been able to use in this match so far is a chair ?)
        *triple threat
        *K.O. Match. (Seriously don't see what purpose this match type serves whatsoever, would it have killed them to put in a fatal 4 way instead?)

        The only thing in this game I'll give credit to is the watered down career mode known as "Main Event" mode, unlike on the 360 version which I have also played, it's just plain & simple: work your way up the ladder, challenge opponents, get title shots (although for some daft reason if you win a title every defence for that title is at the same PPV arena, i.e. if you win the tag titles at backlash every title defence will be at the backlash arena), build your character's stats (you can also play as the ECW roster on this version which for some reason you can't do on the 360) and it goes on as on for as long as you want. I can honestly say the career mode is far more playable on this than on the 360, no need to worry about making pointless public appearances coupled with chronic injuries, its just what gaming should be: Fun.

        There is the obvious create a superstar mode which, like everything else in this game, is a watered down version of the 360/PS3 versions, but is good enough for what you need it for.

        The game also has all the same unlockable arenas & characters as the other versions of SD! vs RAW '08.

        All in all I'd say this game is good for what it is: a work in progress. I reckon it lays down a good foundation for what will no doubt be a good title to own on the Wii in years to come, I'm sure performing taunts with the WiiMote is more enough to keep younger wrestling fans entertained for months(it kept me entertained for a couple of hours at least and I turn 21 in 2 weeks lol) but seasoned gamers will be put off by the lack of game modes.

        I know I'll probably be trading it in with TNA IMPACT hits the shelves early next year but if you want to play a pro wrestling game on the Wii this year, this is your only option.
