  1. Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 is the definitive wrestling title of this generation, so far. This is what WWE fans have wanted for near a decade now, and THQ and Yukes have delivered far beyond the usual yearly updates. A must have for anyone with even a passing interest in the world of WWE.
  2. WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 is a massive package. While the absence of online is unfortunate, the game is still as deep as the ocean, with so many modes and so many permutations on those modes that it could take weeks for a player just to experience every mode once.
  3. Compares well with the high-def versions. Wii owners aren't missing out on much. [Dec 2009, p.68]
  4. There's a ridiculous amount of content here for those who fancy it. [Winter 2009, p.84]
  5. The best wrestling game on a Nintendo console since the N64 glory days. Impressive.
  6. 80
    Sure, the graphics could be better and the fact that you can’t share your created stories online or square off against opponents over the Internet is disappointing, but this is still better than last year’s game.
  7. There's a lot of good stuff in SmackDown vs. Raw 2010, but more attention to detail could have made it great. [Dec 2009, p.85]
  8. 75
    Despite its flaws, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 is still a very good game and a lot of fun to play.
  9. SDvR2010 improves on its previous edition in a number of ways especially with the new Story Designer mode yet still managing to not reach its full potential. If you have 2009, unless you really need an updated roaster I see little incentive to update.
  10. Widespread refinements and fun new creation tools make it another good year for Smackdown vs. RAW, but the lack of online play and lingering issues keep the series from flying high.
  11. WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 isn't a revolution for the series, but it is a hefty package comprised of solid parts.

    even though i think its one of the worst in the series (just my opinion) i think its pretty good it is the last game before universe mode came out and the last game where career mode existed also the only game of the series ive played without tournament mode but the graphics are amazing the storyline is awesome and you have got to love the fact that this is the last game with Jeff Hardy im a big fan of him even though its not the best game ever its definitely worth the time to play it.

    My first wrestling game on the wii and it's a great one. Tons of modes and options a worthy purchase for any wrestling who owns a wii.
