Well...actually there are a feww things that i would like to point out.
Some of the superstars don't have certain moves, so they just randomly assign a move that another superstar has, giving it superstar originality. The commentators whomever they are depending on the brand you're on, will always cut mid-sentance when you hit someone with a chair, or use your finisher or something ridiculous like that. It's not something i like.

Aside from all this The rest is exceptionally well.
I like the exhibition matches.
and i LOVE RTWM and Career mode where you can build your created wrestler.

Don't get me wrong i love to play Smackdown vs Raw 2009, but it was missing alot of the real life game play for example: like the in crowrd fighting thats what makes wrestling wrestling i like the in crowd fighting, another problem was the story mode for your created player, thats the best part, i was kind of disapointed that you took that out and for once can you please make the story board longer try fiiting in king of the ring and beat the clock in the gameplay, and the last thing is lets make more realisctic by having injuriers i mean i get tired of fighting and beating the cumputer till there red and they come back like nothing happend. If you fall of the top of the Cell COME ON!!!! the computer get right up lets try to make Smackdown vs Raw 2010 the beat wrestling game evey this year. But other than that i liked playing the game.

This game had all of the elements of a solid wrestling game, but one... the lack of an optioned story path.

The road to Wrestlemania mode is fun, the voice over work is good and the announcers talk about the overall story arc, which is nice considering how repetitive those get in any other mode.

The addition of the inferno match is a nice touch, though the ladder match is still tragic at best. I'm not certain that this series will ever be able to get the feel of the ladder match correctly, too much to program.

The Career path lacks the storyline feel that I personally enjoy, and would like to see a true free formed path of options for a story mode, but again it's probably too much to program with everything else they have.

Give me some options to develop my character and this game would be a 10.

Compared to the other wrestling game that's released lately (which name I shall not utter ever again) this game is the winner of the genre. At least until Legends of Wrestlemania releases.
