As someone who has purchased every THQ wrestling game for years, I had been eagerly anticipating this latest release. Unfortunately, after playing the game I was left with a feeling of disgust instead.
The game is full of bugs. In the 24/7 Mode which represents the game's season mode, more often than not the choices you make will be ignored. For example, at one point I was asked if I wished to relinquish the WWE title. I refused. However, the game reacted as if I had chosen the opposite - and the story progressed as if I had indeed given up the belt. This glitch happened again and again, at numerous points in the game.

The BAD: Loading, loading and more loading...Every action in the game requires load times. This gets very frustrating. Reduced moveset- with the redesigned controls, although quite a bit easier to use, about 50% of the move choices are gone. In prior games, you had approx 16 strong grapple holds, in 08, a mere 8. Targeting is a big issue as well. A new free-move run style is fun, but quite often leads you standing next to your opponant swigning in the air. There is no way to adjust this. there's a few other minor deletions from previous years- as pointless as it was, I liked customizing the locker room, unlocking toys, statues, posters and memorabilia. All that is gone. The locker room now looks like a back-office store room with poor lighting and no ability to pan around. then there's the roster...
