  1. The entire game feels lifeless and old. The presentation fails to capture the excitement of the real thing. The gameplay doesn't match the product it's attempting to emulate. And the layers upon layers of plain-looking menus feel like they were ripped out of a PlayStation 2 launch game.

    Tag team finally plays like it should and Road to Wrestle Mania gives you 5 short story modes. The Career Mode is tedious and the achievements range from tedious to really easy. Full Review »

    An improvement over 2008 but also keeps the positive aspects from the last game. Character models look a little better while the controls still sort of suck, It's still a fun, fast paced game but it's only worth playing if you can't afford WWE 12, achievment whoring or just for the nostaligia of wrestlers that have left the company (Jeff Hardy, Tommy Dreamer).
