WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2011 – review (360, PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: It’s pretty fair to say that, publisher, THQ have the fighting genre all sown up apart from boxing. UFC , as a franchise, is huge and they own the wrestling sub genre hands down. Big licenses have allowed them to publish some very impressive games and there is nothing larger than the WWE franchise and what it has produced over the years.
Excerpt: The Pang format has been around for sometime with publishers routinely releasing games based on popping multitudes of balloons, the template remains relatively untouched and it is no different here with RISING STAR GAMES’ version seeing us play as a Magician that has inadvertently released thousands of balloons across the globe, which he now is tasked with getting rid of.
Excerpt: Smackdown vs Raw has been given an easy ride for far too long now. Yes, the 2011 edition will be adored by hardcore WWE fans who love the fact it's got tens of match types, ring variations, customisable rules and all the big events, as well as a large roster of the most popular WWE Superstars, but the fact remains that very little is changing year-on-year.
Excerpt: Eventually, it happens to every WWE superstar. Whether it's The Rock, HHH, Bret “the Hitman” Hart or even Hulk Hogan himself; after years of taking bumps - you start to show your age. Sure, you can still draw tickets, but you're nowhere near the main-eventer you used to be.

The roar of the crowd, the electricity in the air before a highly anticipated match… I’ve always thought it to be one of the coolest experiences imaginable. Regardless of its validity, nothing can beat hearing 20,000 people screaming your name before a big match, I’d bet money on it. WWE video games have always allowed me to live this dream through digital means.
Excerpt: The newest installment of the SmackDown vs. Raw series is upon us, and with it comes the usual mixed bag of good and bad when one compares past games to the most recent. However, this time around, the pure improvements are pretty game-changing, and extend the replay value exponentially. New to the series are two major revisions - the WWE Universe mode that acts as a blend of a career mode and exhibition matches.
Summary: THQ has done a great job upping the ante with the newest edition of
. The controls remain nice and crisp with few flaws. The graphics are the best yet, almost perfectly capturing every superstar from their look to how they move and the cool cinematics for each finisher. There are issues such as the unpredictable AI, some quirky physics and serious lags in the online play. However, they are more than balanced out by the tremendous action and presentation.
