Does not live up to its predecessors

Having played the last 2 installments of WWESVR 06 and 07, I must say that this version on the wii takes a huge step backwards. Three major issues warrant a score of 3. #1. The controls are modified for the wii which does not allow for precise control of your character. #2. Only 5 match modes? #3. I can appreciate an open story line but SVR08 storyline is just a compilation of play now, unlike SVR07 where there are cut scenes.

In conclusion this game would have warranted a 5 however when THQ set the bar high on SVR07 only to disappoint with SVR08. With SVR08 THQ didn't even take the time to rehash the title. Come on even Madden is better every year.

It wears ur ARM out !!!!!!!

The game is OKAY and the game play is very tiring. The level of controller action is very limited. Basically you are required to move the controller in a constant (Right to Left) motion. To get the characters to do the moves to beat your opponent. All the while hitting the A or B buttons to do certain moves. Now with that constant motion it tends to wear your arm out. I was usually able to play 2 or 3 times. Then I would have to take a break. Well that's my take on it and I hope this helps anyone considering the game.

dont waste your time or your money on this game the move selection is limited to 5 moves per wrestler with no back grapples. The create mode is very bad cant listen to music or preview entrances. What happend to custom entrance mood? No interactive season just text a wrestler with no voices, going back to N64 how retro NOT!!!!I could go on for hours bottom line this game sucks
