The game has all of the stuff that WWE 07 has, but it also has the new 24/7 mode. it you have played wwe 07, this game is the same as that.

This is a great multiplayer game...like all the other WWE games have always been. However, if you want single player story mode, PLEASE don't waste your time with this game. It is the most tedious (boring) character attribute building I ever been through on a WWE game. Plus, many times the wrestlers you are feuding with, you will be hanging out with and shaking hands backstage in the cutscenes.

I have played all of the WWE games and as much as I like this game I can see where the complaints are coming from.

Positives:
- Load time (While the load time is still longer than on some video games it is a vast improvement over SVR07.
- Online Play (It seems that there is less lag time this year and that each wrestler stands a chance even if they are playing against a CAW thanks to the new fighting styles.)
- Wrestling Game (Let's face it, it is a wrestling game made for the PS3. Hopefully it will tide you over until TNA next year)

Negatives:
- CAWS (This system seems dumbed down and less attractive. Not to mention no tatoos or logos online...not good THQ)
- Season Mode (Very repetitive if you want to use a CAW and again nowhere for female CAWS to go.
- Online Play (Yes, it made both lists. This game desperately needs online chat. They should look at their own library (Stuntman) and take from that as I found it worked really well.)

Overall this is definitely worth owning if you are a wrestling fan who likes to play against people online. I think it is a good start even though I expected more.
