Summary: Ok yes they took out quite a bit of the special matches and other options, but it doesnt take away the overall fun of this game. I haven't really played the predecessors too much however (the last Smackdown I owned was Here Comes the Pain) but the overall game play seems very similar.
Summary: 'WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008' is this year's installment from wrestling's leading organisation and is also the first wrestling game to come out for the Nintendo Wii. GAMEPLAY - 4/5 I've not played a wrestling game since WWF Wreslemania 2000 on the N64 (which was brillant for the time) and haven't actually watched wrestling since about 1999, so I don't really know most of the roster, but it doesn't stop it from being a good fun game to play.
Summary: I got the games last Friday and was excited to play the first WWE game on we. Being a WWE fan myself, I had been looking forward to a wrestling game on wii since the consoles launch. After playing the game for an hour or two, i was both impressed and disapointed. The controls were very good and responsive, hittingm someone over the head with a steel chair has never been so satisfying. However the game lacks depth, alot of it..
Summary: Well first of all you have to remember its the first wrestling game, let alone wwe game, on the wii. It was never going to be as good as the ps3 or 360 one but as far as it goes its a good base to start at. I was a big fan of the Day of Reckoning series on gamecube, and thort it was alot better than the WWE SD V R games, so i was disappointed to see Nintendo wouldn't be continuing the DOR series and switching to the other.
Summary: i got this game yesterday, and at first i really was regretting the buy, but i gave it another shot today and set myself a time to play it, it was getting better and better, although is quite repetative. the controls are abit above average but dont really use the full capabilities of the wii controls.
