WWE SmackDown! Vs Raw 2008 Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: WWE SmackDown! Vs Raw features hardly any improvement from last years title and with fault after fault, the game, if anything, is a step backwards in terms of development.
  • Pros: Plethora of match types, Big roster
  • Cons: Horrible collision detection, Too many loading screens, Not proportionately accurate

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008

Strategy Informer
29 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The overwhelming problem with Smackdown! vs. Raw 2008 is that Yuke’s is continuously adding new, largely superfluous content without fixing the game’s many long-standing issues. There is still animation in the 2008 game that dates back to the original title from back in early 2000. The game’s AI is wretched, the 24/7 mode gets dull somewhat quickly, commentary and wrestler voice overs are unnecessary and the developers still have not attempted to take advantage of the...

An Average Smackdown

GIN

  • Excerpt: There was once a time I cared about watching wrestling. It was back during the "Monday Night Wars" between the then-WWF and rival WCW. Between the two organizations, we had memorable storylines such as the New World Order, D-Generation X, Stone Cold vs. Mr. McMahon, Hell in a Cell, and Mick Foley winning his first heavyweight title (and yes, Tony Schiavone, that did put a lot of butts in the seats.

  • Excerpt: For as long as I've been gaming, I've played more than my fair share of wrestling games. There was WWF Wrestlemania and WWF RAW for the SNES, both of which I played the hell out of. Then would come the first monumental wrestling game in the form of WWF War Zone for the PlayStation and Nintendo 64. At the time, it was by far the most realistic wrestling game ever; and the first 3D WWF game too.

  • Conclusion: As I mentioned a tiny bit earlier, the graphics look decent enough, character likenesses are very good and nicely detailed. Animations are well done, all the special moves and the taunts look cool.
  • Pros: -

Review-PS3: SmackDown Vs. RAW 2008

Playstadium
11 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Publikum skriger og stemningen koger i den tætpakkede arena. Gnistrer og farverige lys bliver kastet rundt i det kæmpemæssige lokale, alt imens introvideoen brager over højtalerne. "Simon, Simon, Simon" råber de – i forventningen om en kamp med blod, sved og beskidte tricks, men kan jeg levere mere end det i Smackdown Vs. Raw 2008, eller er det bare mere af samme gamle opskrift?
  • Pros: At THQ tog et kig på deres forrige spil, plukkede det hurtige gameplay ud, og puttede det ned i en ny spilopskrift, for det er virkelig hvad serien mangler.
  • Cons: Over manglen på fornyelse, det langsomme gameplay og det dårlige stemmeskuespil.

  • Conclusion: Amateurs de catchs, Smackdown 2008 est ce qui se fait de mieux sur PSP dans ce domaine. Toutefois, il présente des lourdeurs au niveau de la jouabilité qui empêchent de savourer le titre pleinement. Sans compter les temps de chargement, parfois harassants. Enfin, l'évolution vers le online en infrastructure n'est toujours pas d'actualité. Au final, le meilleur du catch ne plaira vraiment qu'aux fans de la discipline.
  • Pros: Une pléthore de star, Des modes de jeu à foison
  • Cons: Lourd à prendre en main, Pas de mode infrastructure

5 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Karaktärsmodeller (och då tänker jag främst på muskler och liknande, håret är skräp) och publik ser helt okej ut. Resten är inget vidare. Animationerna är stolpiga och hackiga. Brottningen är seg och svår att ta till sig. AI:n bjuder varken på variation eller glädje. Mängden spelalternativ imponerar men det krävs ett wrestlingfan för att uppskatta detaljerna och allt runt omkring.
  • Pros: Mycket innehåll, Snygga muskler
  • Cons: Sega matcher, Krånglig kontroll, Många laddningstider, Ingen variation
