The game will be released within the next month (early September), and we'll see if the new game is in fact a significant improvement over its predecessor.

The roster of playable wrestlers is:

Triple H
The Rock
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
Hulk Hogan
Rob Van Dam
Chris Jericho
Booker T
Rey Mysterio
Chris Benoit
Shawn Michaels
Big Show
Scott Steiner
Bubba Ray Dudley
D-Von Dudley
Stacy Keibler
Trish Stratus
Eddie Guerrero
Ric Flair
Matt Hardy
Jeff Hardy
Torrie Wilson
John Cena
Randy Orton
Chris Nowinski
Vince McMahon
Stephanie McMahon
Chavo Guerrero
Dawn Marie
Al Snow
William Regal
Lance Storm

Forget all the "what about this guy" comments we'll hear in a month's time... the only thing that will disappoint me is the bad timing. It's inevitable that a few new finishers will not be in the game. Such as the RKO for Randy Orton. Prior to using the RKO, he only had that twisting Fame-Asser and the High Flying Cross Body. I doubt the former will be included.

Most of the others should have up to date finishers. I'm looking forward to this, but we'll see what happens - ex. whether or not we can edit the wrestlers' move sets.

Well, maybe they'll let you alter movesets - I'm sure some variation of the Diamond Cutter is in there.

The last game in this series was absolutely terrible - *but* it seems like THQ intentionally botches the first WWE game on each engine. They know it'll sell anyway, and then they can sell the second on the basis that "they've listened to the fans and made the necessary improvements". Remember the first Smackdown game with the mix-and-match heads and bodies version of CAW? IGN's official preview describes the gameplay as "extremely No Mercy-esque", and from the videos I've seen - it looks to be the case. (The grapple system is definitely there - and I think I even saw weak and strong grapples, although it's hard to tell for sure.)

If it's got No Mercy's controls and the kind of incredible Create A Wrestler they've given us in the Smackdown titles as of late, they've got my money and the storyline can be just as stupid as they want. Hell, it might be fun to have Big Show throw some security gaurds around and blow up a yacht.

"So, we've got Uday and Qusay. Now, how about the eapons-way of ass-may estruction-day?"
