5.0 out of 5 stars The interesting life of the great mind of Vince McMahon, 15 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Mcmahon [DVD] (DVD)
McMahon the DVD is interesting and is one worth owning for any WWE fan myself i love getting to know the life of WWE superstars. Vince McMahon tells you about his life and how he got WWE and also tells you the real Vince McMahon.
This DVD also comes with some of Vince McMahons best WWE matches and the one that is worth the best is the one with Stone Cold in a steel cage from Valentines Day Massacre. The match would be the debut of The Big Show during the match Vince McMahon injures his lower back after he loses balance after Stone Cold smashing McMahon's head in the steel leading McMahon to fall and hit the commentary table.

The DVD is worth looking at even for the other matches included it has some interesting and some boring. The documentary is about 2 hours long and worth watching

2.0 out of 5 stars Armageddon 2005 a low event from Smackdown to finish WWE PPV of 2005, 15 Dec. 2007
This review is from: WWE - Armageddon 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
Smackdown were known for their bad PPV'S and this one is bad all other i found that the best part is the Boogeyman putting worms in Nunzio and Vito's mouth the best its funny. Hell in a Cell was alright Randy Orton and Undertaker pull of some good moves but this is not a classic Hell in a Cell at all. The rest of the matches are rather boring the Tim White segment at the Friendly Tap was silly his fake death scene. All those things were Tim faking he wanted to die was wrong and Eddie Guerrero died that year near that time it was like they were making fun of deaths making it a joke. The DVD has 1 extra yes only one friendly tap moments all from APA oh and one with Stone Cold.

2.0 out of 5 stars This event was boring i felt like sleeping, 15 Dec. 2007
This review is from: WWF: Rebellion 2001 [DVD] (DVD)
WWF - Rebellion 2001 is not that great of a PPV i bought the DVD way back and still have it. This features matches such as

Edge vs Christian in a Steel cage match for the WWF Intercontinental Championship
This match was not bad as Edge and Christian do work well together the cage looks boring it ends to edge getting Christian's shoe lace to the cage leaving Edge to get out and score for the win

Scotty 2 Hotty vs The Hurricane
This is a match that is worth skipping Scotty 2 Hotty is boring and The Hurricane gimmick is pathetic

The Big Show vs Diamond Dallas Page
A match that was not worth taking notice

The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von) vs The APA (Faarooq and Bradshaw) vs The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff) in a Triangle match for WCW World Tag Team Championship
A pretty good match The Dudley Boys and The Hardy Boyz you know you will get a good match with them in it and APA

William Regal vs Tajiri
William Regal boring wrestler Tajiri is amazing its a shame that Regal wins but Tajiri gets payback as he sprays the green mist at Regal and kicks him in the head

Chris Jericho vs Kurt Angle for the WCW Championship
We knew the title was never going to change hands and it didn't but it doesn't mean that both of these men don't give a great match they do simple as that.

Torrie Wilson and Lita vs Stacy Keibler and Mighty Molly (w/Trish Stratus as Special Guest Referee)
It was an alright diva match Stacy and Molly pull some dirty tactics to get the win but failed as Torrie and Lita pick up the win

Steve Austin vs The Rock for the WWE Championship
This match was spoiled by Chris Jericho and Kurt Angle if they didnt come in the match this would of been far better. But thanks to this interferance The Rock loses and Stone Cold is still WWE or i should say WWF Champion at that time.

DVD Extras
Have footage already featured on the event and matches worth missing.

people say this is the best UK PPV by far your wrong Capital Carnage was way better then this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rob Van Dam is a legend of Extreme, 15 Dec. 2007
Rob Van Dam is one of the true wrestlers to ever step foot in the ring he has all the moves the style and charisma. The DVD mainly shows his matches at his very best starting with WCW which are not so great then his ECW years which made him a huge star. Then a match from WWE Raw in 1997 against a young Jeff Hardy RVD as he says smokes Jeff Hardy quick match. Then were back on the ECW lines with Tommy Dreamer and Jerry Lynn. Disc 2 has about 4 of his WWE matches the best on this disc is without of a doubt is his match from Invasion against Jeff Hardy for the hardcore title. The extras show 2 of ECW matches a little of his story from Before they were Superstars DVD and other bits and pieces.

Rob Van Dam is one of the best in wrestling he proves it with the matches that are shown in this DVD. You will never see anyone pull of the moves he does as exciting as he does. The only problem with it i would of loved to have known Rob Van Dam's life story and Bill Alfonso with his whistle is annoying couldn't RVD give him a five star frog splash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survivor Series 2005 classic, 8 Dec. 2007
US Title Best out of 7 Match (Match 1)
Booker T vs Chris Benoit 4/10
I found this match ok just a problem it gets boring watching Booker T and Chris Benoit fighting i mean it was all the time for 7 matches that happend during weeks of ahead. This match is ok

SmackDown vs RAW Match
Women's Title Match
Trish Stratus w/ Mickie James vs Melina 9/10
The diva matches are never to good but I enjoyed this match Melina put up a good fight and this is one of her best. Trish Stratus she is way better the whole story of Trish and Mickie James was great which made this an interesting match. If Trish was not wrestling this match then it would of failed

RAW Match
Last Man Standing Match
Triple H vs Ric Flair 10/10
One of my favorites to Survivor Series Triple H and Ric Flair what makes me laugh is when Ric Flair is getting beat up by Triple H he makes this funny wounded animal sound. Triple H takes it right to Flair screwdriver to the head gives him the pedigree about 3 times i think it was. The match finished off with a sledgehammer right to Ric Flair

WWE Title Match
John Cena vs Kurt Angle: Special Guest Referee Daivari 3/10
This match was boring John Cena is overrated Kurt Angle is a better wrestler all you got to do is look at his past WWE career. WWE makes a joke out of Kurt and makes him lose to Cena.

SmackDown vs RAW Match
General Managers Match
Teddy Long vs Eric Bischoff 1/10
This match is more like 2 girls fighting Eric does his karate while Teddy is scared. The match ends with the Boogeyman Eric a pump handle slam causing Teddy to get the win. Why WWE put this on the survivor series event i don't know.

SmackDown vs RAW Match
Classic Surivor Series Elimination Match
Team SmackDown (Batista, JBL, Rey Mysterio, Lashley and Randy Orton) vs Team RAW (Shawn Michaels, Chris Masters, Carlito, Kane and Big Show) 10/10
The story between this was great and i was there a week before Survivor Series was aired i was at Smackdown in Sheffield England when Raw invaded the show. It had a great build up to the match and this offers some of the best wrestlers WWE have or had now. Lashley i believe is the first wrestler to go out of this match after Kane and Big Show. The overall win is Randy Orton picking up his 3rd win in The Survivor Series tournament he won 2003, 2004 and 2005. Undertaker appears at the end during Randy Orton's celebrating in the ring.

This was a great PPV for all WWE fans it has featured a lot of action it is a lot better then previous Survivor Series. This features a few boring matches but it always happens.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst of the Intercontinetal Championship 1993 with Shawn Michaels, 8 Dec. 2007
This DVD is boring full of matches from 1993 4 of with Shawn Michaels and 1 featuring Bret Hart instead of WWE making a new one they just re-release this. It looks like WWE could not be bothered with making a new DVD. The DVD is presented by Gorilla Monsoon which you will know its an old WWE DVD which i would save your money for a much better WWE DVD.

WWE should have pull out the classic moments with the title from 1997 and up instead of 1993 with 5 matches that no one will like.


SmackDown Vs Raw 2008 (Wii)
SmackDown Vs Raw 2008 (Wii)
Offered by trguk
Price: £6.78

2.0 out of 5 stars Once you have played this you feel like you have been ripped off not, 3 Dec. 2007
WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008 finally comes on to the Wii but did it play well and what is the game like. Before i went to college i went and bought the game for a price of £34.99 cheapest price in stores to buy this game.
This game only has 5 modes and this is what it is Single, Tag Team, Hardcore, KO Mode and Triple Threat. So i'm going to tell you about them.

Single well you already know what that is but very short.
Tag Team this was so easy to win all that happens you lay your finisher on your opponent the tag team partner will break up the pin throw them out of the ring you pin your opponent 1,2,3 you have win or the computer has.
Hardcore what is so hardcore on this all it has is steel chairs and its just boring i can't even say its hardcore.
KO Mode - all you have to do is KO your opponent simple
Triple Threat - fight three wrestlers in the ring

This game also features King of Ring and Beat The Clock Match will also smackdown vs tournament and road to wrestlemaina.

The game controls lack their just is not much on them but mainly lifts like power bombs it really just feels like your fighting the same match over and over. I found at least one wrestler i enjoyed playing as and that was Rey Mysterio is finisher the is good with the Wii controls. The taunt system is also a good idea to have in this.

But what i do like in a wrestling game is the modes the fighting i like having a pretty long match but with this every match. But with the wii version of this the matches usually lasts under 5 and 3 minutes, the entrance's last longer then the time your wrestling you can tell that this was mostly made for multiplayer.

Main Event mode is the main game 24/7 mode has been removed and Main Event mode sees you fighting on Raw or Smackdown you even fight on ECW. Now the crazy thing on this game is the Pay Per Views you will end up fighting at No Mercy on here weekly but in the real WWE this event only happens once a year This happens on countless times. Willam Regal you will fight over and over as he sends you messages to fight him this gets boring as it happens all the time which makes you think GOD I WISH I COULD BLOCK HIS NUMBER. This gets boring and brings the game down to shame.

This is another problem i have suffered with playing this making a wrestler and creating the entrance you can not preview them. Take this right you looking in the entrance section and it says entrance 1, entrance 2 so ok i can not preview them i dont know if the player is going to come out looking like an idiot. The only way to actually see the entrance is to leave the creat a entrance mode and start playing a match just to see it that would take ages. It makes it look that this was rushed.

It just feels like this game wasn't worked on as good as it could of been made this is no where as good as Day Of Reckoning. What should been used on this game is the classic controller we would of got a better game out of it but no we get the Wii controls which does not even suit the game.

Overall

Good Points
- Graphics
- Arena's (they do look good)
- Taunts
- Joey Style's gives some exciting commentary

Bad Points
- Controls are limited
- Main Event Mode is nothing like WWE should be
- Matches are to short
- Cannot watch your entrance during in create a character mode
- Commentary gets annoying after you played it a few times its the same
thing Jim Ross and Jerry The King Lawler's commentary sounds the same as last years
- Matches feel the same no matter what
- Lack of moves
- no hardcore only has steel chairs

The price should be lowed down because £39.99, £34.99, £29.99 is way to much for this and it should of been worked on a lot more this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Master of Deal Or No Deal Noel Edmonds gives it to you how it should be givin, 27 Nov. 2007
Deal or No Deal is an ok PC game it features Noel Edmonds of course glad to hear his voice. The game looks a little cheap as the contestants opening the boxes look stupid. With them standing there they dont open the boxes not a major problem. The thing i found silly was i knocked out the huge amount i had left by the way i never done a deal and Noel says yes and the crowd cheer, why would you cheer when you have lost the highest amount you can win.

Overall it is a good look of the show and the game has a good try of it just my computer is not that great to play it runs a little slow on mine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Midway have really gone low on this game, 27 Nov. 2007
Midway Arcade Treasures i own the PS2 versions of this game so i thought i must check this one out. First thing is when you boot this game you get big issues with the controls the screen starts selecting down on its own, Sometimes this happens and can cause you to lose a game.

The game features Midways all time classic game Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3 which was the main reason i bought the game and the psp version of it is not at it's best.
Another game i do enjoy is paperboy all good fun Arch Rivals which is a basketball game was fun to play for a while.

Midway could of done better it is worth a look at but it is not something your going to playing on a whole lot.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Great Boring Bash, 16 Nov. 2007
Great American Bash 2005 was a bad PPV i always though Smackdown having their own events was always a bad idea.

Heidenreich and Road Warrior Animal vs MNM (Joey Mercury and Johnny Nitro) (w/Melina) - WWE Tag Team Championship
I never thought Heidenreich and Animal were a good team they were boring just this match was never exciting.

Booker T (w/Sharmell) vs Christian
This was one of those matches you had to skip it just did not offer much

Orlando Jordan vs Chris Benoit - WWE United States Championship
It was ok match Benoit did some good moves but overall Orlando takes the win

The Undertaker vs Muhammad Hassan (w/Daivari)
If you ask me Muhammad Hassan was screwed out of WWE making him all racist which that was the story writers fault. I liked Hassan he was a good wrestler who i really would of liked to see more of. This was Hassan's final WWE match and he got disrespected if you ask me. The match ends out with Undertaker giving Hassan a chokeslam then giving Hassan a last ride through the stage.

The Mexicools vs The bWo
This match was bad i didnt even know who the bwo were they looked like idiots coming out on those kiddie bikes and mexicools werent even that popular. The bwo i only ever saw on this event and this match sucked

Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero
This was the match over Rey's son well i think it was. Making Rey win all the time was a big no because Eddie should of won a whole lot more this match was not a classic.

Melina vs Torrie Wilson (w/Candice Michelle as Special Guest Referee) Bra and Panties Match
Another low match had to be the worst on the show the diva matches are ever good only trish and lita make good matches. Melina at this time couldnt wrestle good even still she sucks. Torrie is mainly eyecandy so if your some idiot who cant get a girlfriend then you will enjoy it but really i find it boring.

John Bradshaw Layfield (w/Orlando Jordan) vs World Heavyweight Champion Batista
I hate Batista kind of like John Cena there both annoying and stupid JBL is alright this match just was low not got me to turn it off about half way hardly no action.
