This game is way better than Smackdown vs RAW 08. It doesn't have a super long story mode nor does it have a creat character mode, but it will keep you captivated. For TNA's first game and what I believe is Midway's first wrestling game, this game has gone beyond my expectations. I would have liked to see more Bass on LAX's entrance music, and I would like to see the wrestlers go all the way to the ring and it wouldn't hurt to have characters do their own taunts instead of everyone doing Daniels. All he moves are phenomenal and its just so much fun. One more thing, don't try to focus on blocking to much... it'll just get you beat up! Only grappling reversals work on key.
This game wasn't bad, but it also wasn't the best. It does have good graphics which is always a downfall with the wii, but i found it to be short and the gameplay at times exceedingly difficult and unresponsive. Another place that this game falls down is in it's selection of wrestlers and lack of ability to create your own. In the story mode you are unable to choose which wrestler you want to use or take any of the stable into the story mode. In the future, I'm likely to stick with Raw vs Smackdown.
