Overview

Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007 is a wrestling game developed by Yuke's and published by THQ on November 14th 2006. Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007 is the third game in WWE's Smackdown Vs. Raw franchise. Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007 was the first game in the series to be released on a non-Sony console.

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2007 was originally planned to also be released on the PlayStation 3 platform, but was ultimately cancelled before release.

Gameplay

New Features

Smackdown vs Raw 2007 introduced the analog grappling system to the series, allowing the player to grapple using the right analog stick. Using the stick alone would do a weak grapple, while using RB(R1 for PS2) together with the right stick would cause the player's wrestler to hold the opponent in a grapple hold. Moving the right analog stick again makes the player's wrestler perform a grapple move.

Another new feature brought to Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007 is the fact that a characters move set changes depending on the weight class assigned to them. Also new to Smackdown vs Raw 2007 are environmental grapples. These environment hot spots allow the player to perform moves in a quick time event style control scheme that uses a specific place or item.

Momentum

Momentum Meter

Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007 uses a momentum system for it's finishing maneuvers. The momentum meter will fluctuate back and forth depending on how well the player is doing in the match. If the player can pull off multiple types of moves in succession the momentum meter will rise quickly, however getting hit by the opponents moves will lower the meter. The characters attribute of clean or dirty will make a difference as to which moves will build the momentum meter quickly. Performing the same move repeatedly will make the players momentum meter fall.

Location Specific Damage

In Smackdown Vs. Raw 2007 a player can target individual body parts. There is a graphic on the top of the screen that shows a silhouette of a wrestler for each player. As damage on a specific body part increases it will change color on the silhouette.

Stamina

Stamina Meter

Each player has a stamina meter located near the location damage image. If a player is using moves continuously without a break the stamina meter will drop. If the stamina meter drops all the way down the player will not be able to move for a short period of time. The stamina meter will replenish on it's own over time while not using any attacks.
