Great single player, TERRIBLE multi player

Summary: Game is great for little change of pace from the usual madden/call of duty, but if you got this game for the online you are going to be very disappointed. Its flooded with d-bags that think a created player with normal moves of AA, RKO, pedigree, and batista bomb are fair, along with a created finisher that can include 12 different moves. Complete waste of time even playing online. Single player though is different.
Summary: Okay. Usually I buy these games every year and play them, despite their flaws and such. SvR2006 was the greatest in the series and from there, the Smackdown vs RAW series has spiraled into awfulness like the flushing water of a toilet bowl. And speaking of s---, Smackdown vs RAW 2011 is probably one of the lamest games yet. 2007 had glitches and bugs in it, and a flawed new control style.
Summary: I'm not going to go into great depth here...... the game is boring and repetitive, the reversal button dominates the game, it's always better not to attack first and just wait until they attack you and reverse them, over and over and over......I think you get my point. There is only so much fun you can have creating a wrestler and then playing endless mind numbingly repetitive matches to become champ.
Summary: I have always been a fan of Wrestling games and adored the PS2 Smackdown games. Although I'm getting a little fed up with the latest generation games though.. It always seems that for all the good things Yukes & THQ add to the games they ruin 2 or three things. It seems to have been like this since its first appearance on the Xbox 360. Unfortunatly Smackdown Vs Raw 2011 follows the same pattern. Good points:- The WWE Universe mode is a fantastic idea.
Summary: Unfortunately, the smackdown series has been mostly the same since 2008. And unfortunately the bottom line is, its not fun anymore. The graphics are fantastic, and the storylines, and the way they play out in road to wrestlemania are top notch. But a game is nothing without its gameplay, and this is where the game lets everything down. The core gameplay has been the same for years and it just ruins the experience.
Summary: I have always been a big fan of smackdown vs raw games, however this years game has left me seriously dissapointed. it looks like the game has taken 1 step forward and 2billion backwards! The gameplay is slow, the graphics are unimproved from last years and the matches are plain boring because of the lack of ability that is needed when it comes to reversing and countering moves. Really is a total let down!
