Summary: I purchased this game from amazon and just received it today. The game is the game I can't truthfully report on gameplay yet, but I will give a word of caution on the packaging. It's in Spanish along with the instruction manual. Don't know if this was an error or not. If u speak Spanish no problem for you. If u don't it makes the manual useless. And as I don't I'll be looking a guide up online. The game however is the same I guess as all the voice and text is in English.
Summary: This game wasn't all that great. The characters look decent and the manual does a good job of telling you all the controls. However, moving the characters and trying to do grapple with the analog is just doesn't work well to me. Not as many superstars as I thought there would be either and the story mode only has 5 playable guys...
Summary: The only drawback i had was Road to Wrestlemania, if you don't know what you are doing and just play thru you'll miss alot of stuff and most of the stuff you overlook you end up regret cause it took me a good little minute to unlock Austin and The Rock. But overall the game is great, table, ladders and other weapon variations look almost to real at times.
Changes made, additions included, but the same game as 2010

Summary: I actually didn't think SVR2010 was that bad of a game, and much like last year, I pre-ordered this. But now I think I'm on to THQ's little game: introduce an unfinished concept and then instead of patching the game, just fix it a year later and call it SvR20**. **The Good** Create-A-Wrestler: My favorite mode. Last year THQ introduced the idea of uploading your own wrestlers and letting other people download them.
Summary: UPDATED on 11/5/2010 after much more time with the game. While this is a much better game than 2010, it is once again a glaring hole of issues that Yukes and THQ never disappoint on. You will have the regular amount of kids and adults who turn a blind eye to these things, claiming the game is perfect, but you will be SORELY DISAPPOINTED if you listen to these people.
Summary: If you are a fan buy this! why? you will love this. If you are a casual player then buy another fighting game! Why? because its the same thing as previous smackdown games, just updated... and 2 new extras. Overall its ok...

Summary: My point of view is that of an inactive wrestling fan. I was a kid for Hulkmania in the 80's and the peak of my wrestling fandom came during the retroactively titled Attitude era. As that era came to a close the product grew stale for me. My affection for wrestling never diminished, but my interest in the then WWF did. As a result, I don't know who every wrestler in this game is and the active roster is of little interest to me.
