    I'm not a fan of SvR series but it's the worst one, the wrestling styles is cool but remains the same deep problems (a system based in reflex and smash buttons over ability and strategy) and the worst of all is the 24/07 mode, which sadly killed the GM mode.

    Everything else is pretty much the same as the PS3 version, though, sadly, the online play has been stripped out. [Dec 2007, p.73]

    As solid as ever but lacks next-gen dazzle and is inevitably weaker online. [Dec 2007, p.44]

    The graphics are stale, single-player 24/7 Mode is a step backward for the series, the Create-A-Superstar and GM 24/7 are basically rehashes of last year's product, and the same complaints we've had for years -- awful AI, lame commentary, poor collision detection -- are still rampant.
