If you’re looking for portable Sports Entertainment, there is a lot to enjoy here. Creating your own stories is fun, you’ve got every match type the other games do, the TV-style presentation is great, and Create-A-Superstar is back, but none of it can shake the lackluster feel of the graphics and gameplay.
Overall, SVR on PSP remains a fun time, and it's unfair to expect a handheld offering to measure up to its console counterpart. So, in the context of a portable game, it's a good ol' slobber-knocker. [Holiday 2009, p.72]
