$40 seems like a lot to pay for it at this point.

So because community creations doesn't work properly, the rest of the game isn't worth playing?
The actual story mode is such a pain to get through that the community creation feature is the one standout feature that makes the game. It's one thing to download current WWE superstars that didn't make the cut, but it's something else entirely when you can download characters that would NEVER be in a WWE game -- current TNA stars, former WCW and ECW wrestlers, your favorite indie guys from ROH, comic book characters, video game people, movie stars; take all of that plus the custom ring downloadable feature and that's what makes the game interesting.
THQ has given wrestling fans a fun little sandbox to play in but having terrible servers really destroys the fun out of this one. The normal gameplay is fine, but cheaters, glitchers, and hackers run rampant online (as is the way it's been for several years now). The only way that this would be worth the price is if you're obsessive over the current WWE product, if you have someone to play against in real life, or if you're a slave to buying these games every year.
I have no signature. :(

That said, the fundamentals are pretty good.
It was a smooth ride.

I say pass unless you are a hardcore fan.

I bought it day one for $45 and enjoyed it while the servers worked somewhat, but once they started going wonky, I got rid of the game. Picked it back up on the cheap, but by that point the servers didn't work at all, so I got rid of it. My buddy owns it and I get my fix every now and then, but yeah.....
TL, DR: wait for wwe 13 or get it for $10-15
