3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother - Wait For 2009. 29 Oct 2008
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was a massive let-down, with a few uplifting positive points, but overall disappointing. I'll stick to the cold, hard facts - what you will need to know before even considering purchasing the game. Please note - this review is based on my personal experience - an experience that can happen to any ordinary person who buys the game.

To start with, I'll list all the problems I found with the "24/7" mode - the story mode:

- It's repetitive, nothing you wouldn't see in previous versions. On all three shows (SD, Raw, ECW) you play the same 5/6 people throughout the whole year depending on the show you're drafted to and this, consequently, makes the story-lines rubbish.

- Your "friends" in the story quickly turn on you and vice versa. For instance, just when you think you've had a hard enough time from your enemies - they become nice and friendly. Also, your opponents are often the same week after week and you very rarely see title opportunities until you are given the chance to fight for it.

- They have improved the story mode by applying injuries in a more realistic way - if you become injured (which is far too easy really), it stays until you do something about - get healing, massages backstage etc. Great, right? No. Your injuries don't go away, not for me anyway. I used Triple H in story mode. He instantly became injured and I did everything the medical staff advised me - nothing major changed. For most battles I went in with yellow-to-red damage already. It was frustrating.

- Having held the WWE Championship for approximately 8 months, the GM (at the time) Stephanie McMahon, gave me the option to stop the punishment I was receiving by giving up the title, or to ignore her and carry on getting my nipples twisted.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Step Back In The Series 10 Nov 2007
By Caleb Williams VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to say that with this years installment of the WWE Smackdown series I am kind of disappointed as it displays a true step back in the progression of the overall series. Here are a few pro's and con's about the game that I think anyone should consider before buying the game.

Pro: They have overhauled the control system and fighting styles, for example if you're a high flyer like Rey Mysterio you can pull off some of his very spectacular moves with just a one button push simplifying it so anyone can play it like a pro. The hardcore fighting style also gives you an extensive controlling system when pulling off weapon offense, for example if you are a hardcore wrestler you can have a chair and do the classic pillmanizing move of placing an opponents ankle within the chair and stomping on it in an attempt to break your opponents ankle. Flaming tables have also made their debut and this is truly the best looking thing about it as when you're playing an ECW extreme rules match you can recreate some classic moments.

Con: The roster is very very disappointing this year with the exclusion of the former tag team champs London and Kendrick or Kevin Thorn to make room for lackluster diva's that let's be honest nobody will play as. This is always a major criticism I have every year with the WWE games as there are always big stars that you would naturally expect to be in but aren't. If you don't include DX which aren't playable from the very start you only actually have 1 tag team in Cryme Tyme which as I'm sure you can imagine if pretty stupid when you have 2 separate tag team championships.

Pro: The Legends roster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a good Game 13 May 2013
By Timmy
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Brought this game for PS3 as I had it for PS2 back in 2008. It was my favorite wrestling game overall

PRO's
Fighting styles make each individual wrestler different, unlike other wrestling games where they feel very similar

Strong Legend Roster

GM mode, quite possibly the best feature of this game

CON's

24/7 mode is useless and has only one play-through.

Overall roster is too small.

More in depth hall of fame feature

Regardless of the faults I can play this game for weeks and not get bored. Its cheap and cheerful and controls are al ot easier then the current versions

3.0 out of 5 stars Good intentions 31 Jan 2008
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
So I'm going to use the "Stewie Griffin" compliment sandwhich format, a compliment followed by criticism and then another compliment

Compliment: The addition of ECW was huge and adds a fun dimension to general manager mode. The game does a good job of rendering the facial features of the bigger superstars and the ECW extreme rules match is alot of fun.

Criticism: (ger ready for an earful)
- The game retains the unfuriatingly amateurish glitches from most of the previous games of the series (i.e you can't use the whole roster in season mode, reversals happen way too often on any level over easy, and the reversals are often for moves that you didn't actually attempt
- The Season modes are ridden with little things that make the game almost unplayable. The ability to determine what your superstar(s) do on days off sounds like an intersting thing on papaer but doing EVERY day all year (especially in GM mode) gets repetitive. What really bugged me was the fact that at certain points throughout the game in season mode (as a superstar) you will be prompted to make various decisions and almost inevitably your "choice" will be ignored and the game will simply procede down one story path or another without reference to what you wanted
- The create features again fall flat on their face. Created superstars look much more like cartoons than the real WWE roster, created titles are in the same boat, and when you bother to create an advanced entrance for a superstar the game essentially ignores it.

Compliment: DOn't worry boys you'll get'em next year
