Summary: As many others have pointed out, good roster, strange choice in control scheme. It's not that it's difficult. It's actually too simplified, like the game came out of the eras during which these matches took place. I agree they should've stuck with SDvR controls, and yes, the pre-match taunts, the attacks, and the holds are pretty much identical across the roster. There also doesn't seem to be a set result as to what will happen when you hit those controls.
I would only recommend this game to people who miss yesterdays wrestlers.

Summary: The game is alright. The controls are completely different from the regular Raw vs Smackdown games. If the controls were the same this would be the crown jewel. I love all the old characters since I grew up watching them and even forgot about a couple of them. Though I don't like it as much as the others, I still beat everything so it's not horrible enough that you can't play it.
Summary: Really enjoying all the great legends this game has to offer but disappointed in the lack of moves. I am heart broken to NOT see Razor Ramon & "Big Daddy Cool" Diesel!.. I checked to see if there might be a roster update or maybe Downloadable Content, but nothing =/ Also, no Macho Man?! When are they going to make a WWE game with Razor & Diesel..? P.S.
Summary: As someone who grew up in the heyday of WWF/WWE, the 80s and the early 90s, I can say this game has some nostalgia but is far from being a total classic wrestling game. Some of the wrestlers in the game, is a big HUH? Plus wasted attire, signs, etc with SVR 09! Seriously, The Rock, Steve Austin, Hunter Hearst Helmsley?? It is like THQ thought, this will help be appealing to the younger crowd, HELLO, it is a LEGENDS GAME!
Summary: This game is a is a decent game giving around 6-10 hours of play and a couple more in online.The best part are the rare wrestlemania highlights reels of match rivilary and match footage.The controls are ok at best but can get unresponsive since you only use the 4 face buttons and the lefty anolog stick.The gameplay gets very repetative very kind of fun.It took me 3 days to beat everything since me and my friend had nothing to do.Down to the point the story-there is...
Summary: Overall, it's cool to see the old legendary superstars in the ring but the gameplay itself isn't the best I've seen... I wish they had kept the same controls from SVR 2009.... that would of been a lot better, but still cool to see the classic superstars with the Wrestlemania arena.
