bought it on the friday it was released and returned it on the monday.
match types were limited, no hell in a cell, no elimination chamber, no royal rumble, no ladder matches, no table matches, no casket matches, it was one big let down. very basic with minimum moves. the only good thing was the amount of superstars and creating your own player.
real shame, THQ WWE games are usualy quality!

  Not enough game modes

I was really looking forward to buying this game on the wii. Though i must say i am a little disapointed. The general play good but the game modes are poor. No cage match hell in a cell iron man like previous said. No special referee. They could of made this game so much better. It's just seems that they have rushed this out. The entrance i found to be good and the fireworks are great. Hardcore matches are very basic though there is blood. if u like wwe buy this but be ready to be a little disapointed.

Gaz Hope my review helps!

disappointed only a few game types no season or gm mode very basic and poor. the only good point was that u got realistics feeling from the game. i brought it on friday and exchanged it back on sunday. better to get it on ps2

  Good first effort, lacking depth

Many people will be complaining here about lack of match types, but what you really need to focus on is gameplay. It is so awesome to act out every move your character does in the ring, especially taunts.
Graphics wise, its very PS2 but maybe a bit sharper with nice touches.
Overall great first effort but lacking depth.

I Think This Game Is Great! After You've Worked Out The Difficult Controls You Can Really Feel As If You're In The Ring Yourself But Without The Aches And Pains :D

this game is amazing even if it has 5 games single, tag team, tripple threat, fatle fourway and k.o mode. i was dissapointed at first but when playing it a while it justs gets better and better. the game is worth every peny 101% great

  Poor effort

i brought this game yesterday and played with my mate and im already considering returning it. for anyone who hasnt played previous smackdown games you might find this game fun because of the controls, but for me its just really disapointing. i cant believe that you cannot even play a battle royal. big upset

  A different game

The above comment is correct in as much that the match types are limited. BUT this game does something that no other version does and that is really involve you in the matches.

The motion controls work like a dream, the career mode allows you to decide who you want to fight from people who have challenged you and people you want to challege.

You have to bare in mind that this game is not trying to be smackdown its very different. It may have the name but other than that its unique fun and shows what games can really be like. Very good fun with a mate as well on multi.

I do agree that i think they cut back a bit on this version but its an introduction to something else other than the norm & i think what this title really suffers from is using the Smackdown name as it isn't a smackdown title its so much more! shame about the limited match types.

  Not the greatest but a good effort

Not For Everyone. Alot missing in this game most noticeable is weapons and match stipulation's no cage,cell,table or even iron man so what went wrong. Game play good alot of characters to use taunts are good fun i do find the matches to be short thou. the season mode is fun. overall good fun but i feel they havent made this game up to the wii's potential.
