I ended up picking this up yesterday. I haven't played a WWE game since I got kind of bored with Here Come the Pain on PS2. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm actually having fun with this so far. I like the reversal system, and the AI seems decent enough to be fun. I always thought recent WWE games made it look like it was hard to control the movement of your character, and while it can be bit all over the place sometimes, the controls generally feel good after a bit of time with the game. I'm really enjoying the 30 Years of Wrestlemania mode and I'm looking forward to messing around with the creation tools. Hopefully this will be able to keep my interest for awhile.

Will all the pre-order stuff be available for purchase in the future? I hate knowing there's something out there that I can't have, even if it is a bikinis for virtual boobs.
I'm deep into my first career mode and I'm still really enjoying it. I think I may have picked too low of a difficulty. I usually plow through 5 or 6 fights and then I'll get destroyed. It took me a couple tries to finally be competitive in title matches. The best fights happened once I was able to hold my own in the really tough fights. I think next time I'll try a career on the next difficulty level and see if it's too challenging.
The submission system can be a bit frustrating, but overall I think it's really good. There's definitely a lot going on when you start a submission that isn't shown on the minigame. It's taking into account stamina and position and submission ratings and probably some other things as well. It's not perfect, but it feels like a good representation of how difficult it must be to tap a fresh opponent as opposed to a tired one.
Great game, online is fun even though the servers have sucked, and im getting trashed. Leg kicks feel awesome, same with the punches, lots of fun/
Is everybody having trouble with online? I haven't even touched it yet.
The game has been out for a little bit now. What do people think about it so far?
I've only played a few hours so far, all offline, and I'm enjoying it for the most part. The standup game is pretty solid now that I've gotten used to swaying and actually being smart about blocking low. There's a lot of nuance to the ground game that I'm still learning, but even knowing just the basics I'm having fun with it.
