I enjoy this game and encourage people that are debating sitting this one out to get it.
There are a few minor flaws that you can really care less about.
1)Still dont see every superstar on it, im hoping that 09 has more superstars and brings in guys like hornswoggle and more divas
2)you can only have one 24/7 mode at a time. Its the same story over and over but i usually play as a GM.
3)Obviously, they cant make it perfectly fluent which sometimes makes the game really suck. if your getting up and somene uses a move that is used while your down it still works.
I like this game but it can get boring, during which i suggest u create new characters and titles to spicen it up

I have no complaints to this game. It keeps getting better and better. The graphics are amazing and so is the gamplay. ECW and the new wrestler's ability(hardcore,showman,- submission,etc) are a great add!

The WWE titles keep getting better and better. First of all, the graphics are top-notch (as expected). Facial expressions, muscle movements, and pyrotechnics are all improved on this one. Voice overs aren't quite as cheesy as the last game (although ric flair needs some lessons). The create-a-superstar mode is better than ever, plenty of options, but easy to modify however you like. Create-an-entrance mode is awesome, too. Xbox has the option to use any song you have on your hard drive as entrance music for your wrestler, which is great.

The gameplay seems a little slower than before, but is still up to par and seems a little more believable than before as well. Weapons have more fun add-ons as well, such as setting a barb-wire 2x4 on fire :) Some of the maneuvers have been re-animated as well (the RKO, FINALLY!).

My only complaint is that the game has a bad tendency to be cheap. Sometimes it doesnt matter what you do, the opponent can counter every single move you throw at him. And the ladder matches are a pain also. Even if youre not a big wrestling fan, this is an extremely fun game to play around with...pummeling Cena has never been more fun :)
