Now there arent as many modes or matches as the other systems, which might turn you guys off but the gameplay is simply amazing, While there are some repetive moves like when ur in a tag match and your pinning some1 2 things can and will happen, 1 is that your partner hits the guy b4 he can breakup the tag(usually number 2 is what happens) 2 is that u pin the count gets to 2 and then the opponent hits you and stops the pin, then your partner knocks him outta the ring. BUT OVERALL I HAVE TO SAY ITS A GOOD GAME AND I LIKE IT ITS REALLY ADDICTING I TOOK A dAY OF SCHOOL JUST TO PLAY!

-Controls (6 out of 10):
WWE Smackdown V.S. Raw 2008 (SVR08) for the Wii is a game that had alot of pontential in being different and being a better game because of it. The controls actually feel a bit weird and gimmicky. One is that you only punch with your Wiimote only and shake it like crazy you will pull of combos. You shake the nunchuck to throw people to the ropes and it feels weird when doing it. There is no button to run so it feels your stuck just walking (no the case when outside the ring). Where the controls really shine is when acting out the taunts. But, another flaw, is doing the grab moves themselves. They are unresponsive at times and some times don't make sense doing them (except choke slams).

-Single Player (8 out of 10):
Wii has a special "career mode" than the other consoles. SVR08 has Main Event, in where you choose a wrestler and approve fights or ask for them and gain popularity for it. The more popular you are the more stuff you can unlock like wrestlers and arenas.

-Multiplayer: (6 out of 10)
Supports up to 4 players but I couldn't find a mode like Fatal Four Way, in where all players are against each other. The only way they can is in a Tag Team match. Other than that its a fun time to go crazy with friends. Lack of modes does hurt it though.

-Modes (6 out of 10):
Right when the game is loaded you will see Play Now, Main Event, Tournament, Create Modes and Options. Play Now is used to play multiplayer and there is only about 5 different match types, and all are about the same (no cage matches). Main Event is for single player, Tournament for King of the Ring games.

-Graphics (6 out of 10): Players look great but the crowd is horrible.

-Sound (8 out of 10):
Everyones songs are there. Commentary can get very repetitive.

Conclusion: [Avg. of scores](6 out of 10)
Hopefully THQ learns from the mistakes and fixes them and look for a better SVR next year.
