I got this game as a christmas present when it came out, and having played the majority of wrestling games before this I was pumped, however, it isn't an amazing game.
If you're familiar with the controls of SvR 2007, then this is going to take a while to get used to, the controls have been changed and it is one of the things that has put me off the game.
Gameplay wise, it's almost the same as '07, except it has a better career/season mode and a better CAW.
The problems start with online, this is one of those games where you could easily lose to someone who just stomps you the entire time you're on the floor, even if you know how to reverse moves well this can get very annoying.
Overall, give this game a try if you're a hardcore WWE fan, but otherwise give it a miss if you're more of a casual gamer.
