Top 100 DVD Reviewer

After the fantastic 07 game I had high hopes for 08. I was wrong.
They have made the controls more complicated and the season poorer. The GM mode has also become dull. The reson I give it 2 stars rather then one is because there are more match types and more charters but the fact they don't use ECW much is dissapointing.

 08=very limited. Disappointing.

Not the best wrestling but at least it was an improvement from a very lazy 07. 08 is pretty ok but it's not really long term and it's still has big time flaws like their caw mode, it's still the same crappy one from 07 and making caws is such hard work which I get easily bored of. The new fighting system is ok but it lacks moves for the females, not to mention some new moves would be nice but instead they reanimated the moves which I think they don't need. The 24/7 mode sucks and building up your guys abilities is just hard work as well.

So basically it's a bit mediocre but not as mediocre as 07. I still won't recommend this. Stick to 06, HCTP, SYM and DOR instead

 Nice improvements, but doesn't live up to SvR 07

This game has a few improvements like fighting styles and a more realistic GM mode and also ECW in it as well...

The problem with ECW GM mode is that you cannot fight in Extreme rules matches even though they are "exclusive" to ECW...

Overall, great game but the LEGEND difficulty is extremely easy...

I love this game, i brought smackdown vs raw 2009 brand new and was very dissapoinoted with it, the stories were rubbish and the road to wrestlemania was naf, ive now gone back to this one and cant get enough of it, i think the storlines are great and the career mode is awesome, the graphics are believable and the wrestling is awesome, i think this is one of the best wrestling games made.

This game is great fun improvment on 2007 buttons are different and wierd at first but easy enough to get used to, new things have been added such as flaming tables and new ecw match that is fun, but the creation of charaters is still limited with not good clothing, the comentators say the same things as they did on 2007,would say that is is better than 2007 but not by much. 24/7 mode stories are lame but unlocking and getting your charaters states up is fun but takes a very long time good game overall.
