WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008

  • Summary: Game is total crap. Graphics are sub-par. Reminds me of something that I would have played back when N64 was cool. Im just glad I got it on eBay for $6 and not at retail.

...This is WWE?

  • Summary: First let me say that I have played every version of the Smackdown series on the Playstation systems. The first 2 games on the PSOne, all the rest on PS2 and now this on the PS3. And let me say, out of all those games... this is the first one that has ever truly disappointed me (Though the game following "Here Comes The Pain" was pretty poor too). With this being the first version to release on Sony's new console, I expected more of a punch... what did I get...

Backtracking?

  • Summary: As far as the Smackdown series does, I've seen it improve each release. 2008 was a disappointment of sorts. While graphically superior, the PS3 version seems to be merely a port of the PS2 version, lacking the capability to play music stored on the hard drive (which all PS3's have) unlike the XBox 360 version (which may or may not have a hard drive), has less create-a-superstar items and less moves that 2007's release, and an absolutely horribly written story mode that...

An Insult to Fans of the Series

  • Summary: As someone who has purchased every THQ wrestling game for years, I had been eagerly anticipating this latest release. Unfortunately, after playing the game I was left with a feeling of disgust instead. The game is full of bugs. In the 24/7 Mode which represents the game's season mode, more often than not the choices you make will be ignored. For example, at one point I was asked if I wished to relinquish the WWE title. I refused.

I was expecting better from THQ.

  • Excerpt: I have been a fan of the Smackdown Vs Raw series since it was first released, however i think this product is a huge let down for THQ - it really represents a step backwards in the overall series. A good point of this game is that they have developed the specific fighting styles for different wrestlers, so, if your playing as a high flyer like Matt Hardy, it is very easy to pull of some of his spectacular moves.

Avoid

  • Excerpt: I purchased this for £10 the other week second hand, having not played a wrestling game since No Mercy on the N64. Here are my observations - and if you like the game, be prepared, it's brutal! 1. The gameplay is pretty horrendous. It is impossible to pull off a move half the time because apparently the computer learnt from Kurt Angle and can reverse every move you make.

Another year, another boring smackdown

  • Conclusion: After the initial 20 minutes you will realise this is just another boring smackdown which hasn't differed from smackdown 1 or 2 on psx/1!

  • Excerpt: This is quite simply the worst WWE smack down game ever to be made the controls are stiff and the moves for each wrestler are too repetitive.
