  1. This is still the best grappling game that money can buy, but having said that there isn't really a lot of competition.
  2. You can spend dozens of hours playing through the game’s various modes and match types, and that’s even before you start playing multiplayer.
  3. All of the changes and new features were all for the better, and any wrestling fan will be happy with this game.
  4. The new controls merely paper over the same old flaws - but, ultimately, it's still compulsive fun. [Christmas 2006, p.84]

    Think of SmackDown 2007 as the Ric Flair of videogames -- a wrestling great with enough titles and fond memories to keep its forward momentum for yet another, but aged to a point where we're questioning how much longer it can go.
  6. But, for as fresh as it seems, it also feels horrendously outdated in terms of story and characters. [Dec. 2006, p.128]
  7. The new control scheme makes SvR 2007 much less of a button-masher as much of the grappling is now mapped to the right analog stick, although sometimes a combo button is needed for certain grapple follow-ups.

    Arguably the best of the WWE bunch. Pros: Fantastic graphics; great gameplay and controls; variety of superstars and matches; humorous story mode; addictive General Manager Mode. Cons: The online play has a few bugs; cruiserweights are practically useless against heavyweight superstars, making fan-favorite Rey Mysterio difficult to play. Expand

    Its like most sports games where the next game is similar to the last. While it is different in its own way it feels like SvR 2006 just with a few updates. Expand

    I honestly think that this is one the best SD!vR games in history, but not better than 08 or the original SD!vR, but still a really good game entirely
