alright I picked this up wednesday for the ps2 (rental) and I plan on buying it for the psp. So far it's ok. they continued their tradition of completely changing the control scheme again so it's takes a while to get used to.

so far I've unlocked everything within reason except for the GM of the year to get vince and bald vince, and creating stables, belts etc needed to get other shit from the hall of fame.

also i can't find any info on how to light the tables on fire as seen in the commercials

there is a cheat menu this time but i'm sure most of them unlock shit you can buy through playing the game, but i've only seen two cheats posted online 1 being shawn michaels d-x costume which i've already unlocked and 2 being an alternate costume for kelly kelly, which i could give a shit about as i never pick any girls for anything, even managers

I head the Wii version only has 4 different match types, and no hell in a cell or elimination chamber. Is THQ trying to bail out on Nintendo because of the unique controls? (Wiimote) It better not suck on the Wii.

I picked up the Wii version yesterday as part of TRU's buy 2 get 1 free promo. Haven't played it yet; I only had time for The Simpsons Game.

You can light the tables on fire by storing a finisher, set up a table, and hit the special by it.
and you have to be in extreme rules match...its doesn't work in a regular table match....You can also like the 2x4 wrapped in barb wire on fire too....

not a whole lot.The roster is pretty small this year...Rick Rude, Terry Funk, Sabu, and then like Stone Cold The Rock Vince and Shane...

I did wind up picking this up for the 360......and I really don't like the control scheme for this game. I don't know if it's different for the PS2/PS3 versions, but it just seems like the number of moves you can do has been greatly reduced.

Overall, when you also factor in the lack of roster depth, I'm pretty disappointed in this game thus far. The new stuff just doesn't make up for what I consider to be the game's flaws.

but to be able to put your own music in the game for entrances FTW, I really need to find Jericho's old WCW rip off of Even Flow theme, its so bad-ass, and Jericho could do 1001 moves back then too

They changed it from last year..Once you get the hang of it its alright...

I agree putting your own music on the CAW is pretty cool. I am also going to put Man in the Box on Dreamer...

(Wow, I'm quoting myself)
I got the Wii version for christmas, and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. It IS missing a lot, though. I really wish you could set tables on fire and shit on the Wii version. And the only weapon you can use is a steel chair. That sucks. Next year, THQ has to put more into the Wii version.
