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.

WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2008 review for the XBOX360

 

Solid foundations; ECW superstars

Restrictive superstar types; Complicated submission system; Lack of story flow and purpose; Repetitive commentary

With all this negative talk about WWE Smackdown! vs. Raw 2008, you might be surprised to know that I'm a long-time casual fan of wrestling and wrestling titles. I still treasure WWF No Mercy for the N64, and my childhood is full of eyes-glued-to-TV...

SmackDown! VS. RAW 2008 Review

 

The Xbox 360, PS3 and PS2 versions of this year's WWE games take a few steps forward and a few steps back.

SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PS2 are solid experiences once you look past the many many design transgressions. It's a shame that Yuke's has mucked up what many considered a winning formula with the 2007 edition of the game, but the...

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

Great new character creation mode eliminates the ridiculous, and is now a powerful, subtle tool ; The game will feel most familiar on the 360 to longtime fans, since it has vibration and no motion sensitivity ; One of the deepest versions released so far

ECW stars can't play through 24/7 mode on their own show or with their own storylines ; Graphics have a ways to grow before they'll match true 360 masterpieces like Mass Effect

With the most familiar controls of any version released this year, the Xbox 360 version edges out the PS3 version this season, by a hair.

modern-day studio wrestling

WWE wrestling is fake, and runs off of a script whenever possible

War in your living room

New Superstar Fighting Styles enhance the unpredictability.; Analog controls now include submission situations

Limbs still poke through each other with regularity

How many times can you take a chair to the face and get up?

Not quite a legend, but this year's WWE wrestling game is still that...damn...good.

This system fits in with the mostly accessible gameplay. Various grapples are available, depending on which direction you move the right analog stick. Holding down the right bumper button while moving it gives you power grapples, in case you feel...
