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. All of the moves are performed by swinging the Wii remote a nunchuck in different directions, giving you a more interactive experience than frantically bashing buttons faster than the other player. This also means that you don't have to spend ages learning moves for each wrestler, as generally pulling a move off correctly is down to luck.
GRAPHICS - 3/5
The character models of the wrestlers (and the refs) are very realistic, both in the ring and during their entrances, but the crowd looks like they are made of cardboard and are not that much better than the crowds from the days of the N64 and the Playstation.
SOUND - 5/5
All the wrestlers have their original theme tunes when entering the ring. There's also loads of commentry from the Raw, Smackdown and ECW commentators and they seem to be in time and accurate with the action that is happening in the ring.
LIFESPAN - 3/5
Unfortunately this is where this game falls majorly. I've played the PS3 version of this game and there are over 100 different match types to choose from - Royal Rumble, Hell in a Cell, ladder and the 24/7 mode. Not here. On the Wii there's only 1-on-1, tag team, hardcore (where chairs are the only weapon) andTriple Threat.Read more ›
The game itself is lacking deptch but never the less it is fun. Matches generally only last a few minutes max, which in some ways are good as in previous games you can get bogged down in one game for 20-30minutes. The controls are simple to pick up, and i personally do enjoy the interactive way you do the moves, even if they are limited at moment. The intros are good, DX one is worth a look, and the way you do taunts is new and takes full control of the wii controller (for example for the DX chop u hold C and do a chop motion with the wii num-chuck and controller) Their is a large roster on the game containing RAW, Smack down, ECW and legends on it so you get a good choice on character selection.
The downsides is their is limited match choices, expected really as its the first ever one on wii and to expect everything on the first installment would be pushing it. Your opponents seem to get up quickly if you try to the top rope, their is no stamina gauge, and for me the game play needs to be slightly speeded up <as a Day of reckoning fan the game speed was always quicker than the smack down series).
Overall tho for a first try its decent, probably not worth £40 but if you have a few games lying around u dont want its worth trading in and getting this on the cheap (i got it for £7 after trading in mario football and dragon ball Z). Hopefully tho the TNA game which will be released spring time next year will be better and provide some good competition for WWE games.
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...with only 5 possible matchtypes and no WWE favourates like ladder matches, hell in a cell and elimination chamber the exhibition mode quickly gets dull, matches last around 3 minutes at he most and dont offer any real excitement of a good long match. There is also a great lack of moves in the game, with all the charcters each having a similar set moves set which you will see all of in the first 20 mins of play.
Overall the game is fun, for a while, but the lack of modes and features makes you feel robbed as the ps2 version has the all.
there is much improvement to made for 2009, which I look forward to.
I cannot believe THQ consistently rip off Nintendo WWE fans. This is by far the worst yet. Really small roster, no options of matches apart from single, tag, triple threat and hardcore. No weapons apart from chairs.
Worst of all the controls just don't work. It's total random what move you do, climbing the ropes, executing a slam, submission move; the controls for all of these appear to be hold 'a' and wiggle the remote. To get up, guess what you have to do? Wiggle the remote!
Avoid, avoid, avoid!

Not a bad game, could definelty do with a few more match types (which I think are on the 09 game). a lot of the actions are quite repetitive but still worth a play!!Published on 2 Feb. 2009 by Mr. D. Brunton

Very good but not an amazing wrestling game. I have played on it for 5 hours in the last 2 days, but it gets less interesting after a while.Published on 23 Feb. 2008 by Carol Evans
