  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...

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.

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.

  worth a go

Dont get me wrong but i love the game... The game play is awesome but the 24/7 mode is so poooor the story lines are stupid i mean what was with the part where one of the divas turn you into diva its so stupid, the only part i enjoyed was when i became the hardcore champion.. The controls at first where pretty hard but i got used to them and another thing i dont get is that when you totally beatdown a superstars with the weapons and when the body is red there still manage to get up, reverse your moves.... But yeah cant wait for svr 09.. Ive played all the series so far and loved them

  What went wrong?

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.

they really need to rethink this game and go back to the freedom of 07. 07 was a great game and i have traded my 08 in and gone back to 07. Its simple, buy 07 instead of 08 and i hope they dont make the same mistake in 09.

  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
