SvR 2010 is a fantastic game, wrestling or otherwise. It's fun, polished, and loaded down with extras and the little details that make sim games great.

First, the game play. It's pretty much your standard SvR control scheme with a few exceptions. Grapple moves are no longer on separate tiers. You now chain weaker grapples into stronger ones. I, personally, have enjoyed the change so far. It is very intuitive and easy to get the hang of. I also have not had a huge problem with my moves being reversed too often. I see just as many counters as I have in the past games. But ti will be an acquired taste for many, i'm sure.

The presentation is, again, top notch. Easy to navigate menu screens. Detailed info windows for every mode and, honestly, I find it to be the best front end they have put in. The entrances are awesomely accurate as always, the backstage shenanigans are handled in the offbeat WWE way and are either funny or ridiculously funny, but the commentary STILL needs improvement. I love the expanded backstage and it reminds me of the old Smackdown games on PS2.

Road to Wrestlemania is again a treat as you get 5 tailored scenarios, layered with the drama and comedy you can expect from a WWE program. With the expanded backstage it really feels like you're in a WWE show each week. You can interact backstage but you don't have to. It's just there for you to enjoy or you can focus on pushing the story forward. There are still many scripted moments backstage and they are, for the most part, enjoyable. I do agree with some reviews that a few backstage encounters went on a bit too long but it didn't ruin anything.

The real star this year is the WWE Universe. A combo of exhibition mode and career mode. It is the WWE for you to control week in and week out. You are basically Vince McMahon. You can play matches or just sim out a week, a month, or a whole year at a time.

Everything feeds into the online as well to make the experiences even better. Just a great game.
