It's the best game because I played it was fun I felt the exitement. I felt like I was there. My favorite characters were THE UNDERTAKER, JOHN CENA, and JOHN MORRISON. It's very entertaning. My favorite Battle is a tag team with my friend because meanwhile I am fighting my friend starts to play and win by my side. My tag team with her is LOST MERCY it's very catchy. This was the very first wwe game this is when barely started liking SMACKDOWN! This was a fun start with liking wwe games, SMACKDOWN,RAW, or ECW. I hope this helped you as much as it helped spread my feelings fo this game.

Deeper than 08, but way to much waggle

So I had really high hopes for this game and it just didn't pan out. I hate to say this but on other systems the game might be a little better. The main reason is that shaking the remote is about 50% (if not more) of the game.

I will say this. It is a big improvement over the 2008 model. You have more match types, good graphics, more superstars, a great create a superstar mode, and more options in general. The controls for the most part are easy to pick up, but sometimes it just feels tacked on. This is definitely a game that could have benefited from the motion controls. When you get on screen prompts that tell you to move one way or another, you can really just shake the remote and that will be it. Or you are trying to match the on screen prompts and it doesn't read what you are doing, which is just really frustrating.

Overall this is a definite improvement over last years model but I think it will take one more year to really nail it down. To me, it is just too much waggling for my liking. I do like the fact that they worked it in there, but just not as much of it. Use it selectively and make sure when you use it that it works. If they just came up with an alternate control scheme then this game would be much, much better.

This is by far the best wrestling game we have played. I originally had it listed in our Que, though my husband couldn't wait for the game to arrive and had read so many great reviews, he received it for Christmas.
For the wrestling fans out there looking for a fun game to play, pick up this game, you will not be disappointed.
