NintendoWorldReport has posted their impressions of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008.
"The gameplay has been simplified from previous versions of the series. Strike attacks are performed with a directional Wii remote flick. Light grapples (A Button) and heavy grapples (B Trigger) in conjunction with a Wii remote motion are very easy to pull off. There are no stamina meters to recharge after pulling off big moves, which keeps the flow of a match moving quickly. Any attack performed from a distance will automatically turn into a running attack, as there is no run button in the Wii version. A lot of people may not like this, since running around is a common tactic, but when you consider all of the other cool stuff that has been added in because of the Wii remote and nunchuk's motion controls, it may be a trade-off worth tolerating."
