WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2008

 

Being tied to the WWE, every game in the series has a gimmick, and a mere glance at the cover will reveal this year's theme. It’s time to prep the stretchers in 2008, as the pain-loving ECW boys are here to join the party. The ECW brand (which in WWE...

Creation mode ; Addition of ECW ; Wrestlers look better than ever

Lingering control issues ; Online play easy to take advantage of ; AI cheating is evident

With some great new additions, an outstanding creation mode, fun offline Achievements and the attempted use of ECW, the game strives to be a Hall of Famer. However, unresolved frustration and performance issues keep this game from getting the title shot.

Pro wrestling is an odd thing to recreate in a videogame because it's the only sport where the videogame version is not only more competitive, but also more realistic, than the ?sport? being simulated. While pro wrestling pretends it's real, the main...

Smackdown vs. RAW is back yet again for the 2008 incarnation featuring a bunch of new icing on an otherwise bland cake; for a wrestling simulator, SvR 2008 takes all of the flashy drive and determination of WWE but never feels authentic just like its...

If at first you don't succeed, try and try and try again.

24/7 Mode is a superior replacement for incomplete Manager and Career modes ; With over 100 match types and a nearly complete roster including ECW, depth is here in spades ; Character creation is now a very refined tool

No True HD mode (1080p) on PS3 ; No motion-sensitive controls on PS3 ; ECW stars appear, but cannot be played on their own show in 24/7 mode

SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 may be the only major pro wrestling title in town, but it's a good one and, unlike Madden with the NFL license, doesn't let its exclusivity lead to a lack of innovation and improvement. A solid upgrade!

It's not the giant leap forward we'd like to see but wrestling fans will enjoy it.

Lots of match types; plenty to create and customize; online matches and trading

Small roster; repetitive and weak storylines; not a big improvement over the last game

Smackdown! Vs RAW will sell regardless of quality, but it's not going to get many newcomers if the series continues to stagnate in what can only be described as last-gen gameplay in new-gen clothes.
