I own this game and will give this 4 stars but that doesn't mean the game is flawless. The gimmick matches (Hell in a Cell, Elimination Chamber, Ladder Matches etc) are pretty much the same as previous years but now seem in desperate need of a overhaul.
GM mode is quite good but only if you turn injuries off - I had a roster of 15 and 9 were all out injured in the first month!! Unfortunately the season mode (24/7 mode) is probably the worst yet as you play the same story lines over and over and view the same cut scenes over and over and it gets very boring, but you can sim the entire season to unlock wrestlers etc.
The roster is a little thin (less charcters than last years game) but some of the playable characters are listed below:
(Batista, Hardy Boys, Undertaker, Kane, DX, Cena, Rey Mysterio, Chris Masters, Randy Orton, Carlito, Vince McMahon, Stone Cold, Bret Hart, Shane McMahon, The Rock, Mick Foley, JBL, Ric Flair, Mr. Kennedy)
Unfortunately there are lots of wrestlers missing that should have been included in the game (London, Kendrick, Balls, Cade, Murdoch, Hardcore Holly, Boogeyman, Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas, Highlanders, Kevin Thorn to name a few)THQ have no excuses because some of these were in last years game!
New to this years game is the new fighting style system (brawler, hardcore, powerhouse etc) and you can now put people through flaming tables as well as having all 3 announce teams!!
The matches are as fun as ever but you will feel a little disappointed by the game's lack of depth (the ECW presence that is promised consits of Tommy Dreamer, CM Punk, Sabu, Terry Funk, Lashley, Sandman, Elijah Burke, Snitsky). Beat the Clock and King of the Ring modes are good additions though.
