Summary: This game was a BIG part of my childhood and I would play this game for hours. It contains superstars from the attitude era which was the GREATEST. They gave it a bad review because it is old. This was the best back in 2002-2003. I loved it, if you are a die-hard WWE fan, purchase NOW!!!
Excerpt: I will start by basically saying do not waste your money on this rubbish. Some people have rated this game as the thinking mans wrestling game where tactics come into it over button bashing. These people are either blind or have obviously never played the game before. Firstly, when you attempt to perform a certain wrestling move such as the suplex you will find your wrestler pulling off a body slam, then when you go to perform a body slam you will pull off a piledriver.
Pros: good points . . . . . . ok stop Joking now .
Cons: A way Out Of Date Wrestlers what have not been in the WWE Ring since the year 2001 .
Excerpt: To be honest this game is a let down for the capabilities of the xbox, the graphics aren’t that brill but better then psx, and the game play is very sluggish. Personally i think they’ve rushed this game to try and get it released at the same time as wwe smackdown 3 or was it 4 i cant really remember. The match types are more or less the same as any other wrestling game, but there isn’t really a career mode.
Excerpt: Well now lets see WWE Raw Is War to me looked great so I went ahead and bought it hoping it could match my original thoughts, but guess what? it sucks...Very hard just like a hoover. For a start theres not enough match types,not enough wrestlers,no season mode,you can't take your grappler backstage and you can't even go in the damn crowd like they promised UNFAIR!!!!!!
Excerpt: THQ, who made this game, have made wrestling games since the Nintendo 64 days. I remember becoming heavily addicted to those old N64 games, 'RAW' however, has yet to reach that, 'I can't stop playing' level, and sits comfortably with 'play it once in a while.' The game does boast several fun features though. Creating a wrestler is a very detailed process here, you are able to change almost every part of the wrestlers body, manufactoring your perfect looking warrior.
Excerpt: WWE raw is the first WWE wrestling game on the XBOX it has a fairly large selection of characters ranging form the undertaker to william Regal and stone cold steve austin,raw has Superior graphics to the smackdown games and the best entance sequences ever seen.the game controls are not the most responsive but the graphics do make up for that.there are tables and ladders in the game (only accessable in hardcore matches)but there are no table or ladder matches ,no hell in...
