chaingangsoldier's WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 (Xbox 360) review

WWE SVR is back...and featuring ECW!

Pros
  • Still fun to play as a WWE fan as all other WWE games are
  • Huge amount of match types as their always has been

Cons

  • Bad story, isn't nearly as good as previous games
  • Still bad clipping and animation issues

Presentation


Menus are done very well, aswell as the entrances for most characters. Cut scenes before matches get VERY repetitive.

3.5/5

Graphics


An improvement, although they could have been much better. Improving at a snails pace from previous games.

3/5

Gameplay

Very fun to play as a WWE fan. If you're not a WWE fan it would probably still be fun to play. Controls are getting better. Huge amount of matchtypes. Creating characters and what not is fun. GM Mode gets boring after a half an hour.

4/5

Sound


WWE superstars are done very well. The announcers (JR, The King, etc) voices can get very annoying and repetitive.

2.5/5

Online


Fun and adds to the replay value. Can use characters you've created in the game which is nice. Usually no serious lag problems.

3.5/5

Lasting Appeal

Unless you're a WWE fan, a month or two tops.

3.5/5

Overall

If you're a WWE fan, pick it up. If not it's only worth a rent.

3/5

    It's rather upsetting that yet again, were forced to swallow yet another rehashed game not worthy of our gaming machines.  I mean, the same animations have been used for awhile now.  Even dating back to the Ps2 and the first Xbox, the animations for some of the superstars finishers have been the same.  That's quite possibly the most frustrating thing about this game.The brand new addition to this game is the ECW no rules match(i.e. Hardcore Match), and the only new addition to that actual match ...

    Amazing High-Octane Wrestling Game 0

    Well, there are a lot of ignorant people towards this game for no reason. I can honestly say it's one of the funnest wrestling games I have ever played and there is just so much to do. Let's start off with campaign, you pick your favourite superstar from any brand and you go along with a storyline of facing other wrestlers in all types of matches and it shows fun clips to watch. At the beginning of this game when you're learning how to play with the new controls and all the features it's kind o...
