    To the point: pain has rarely been so pleasureable. Rumble on, spandex warriors. [Dec. 2006, p.74]
  2. 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.

    New ways to play, sure, but SmackDown isn't a true champion -- the terribly long load times (it has to load each and every entrance) gave me a bad case of PSP fever.
  4. It's another great entry in the SmackDown! lineage that suffers only because what it fixes and improves isn't necessarily what is wrong with this aging game engine. Fans will undoubtedly enjoy it for what it is, but they'll also certainly be wondering if a true overhaul of the series is on the horizon.

    It doesn't rise leaps and bounds above its PS2 predecessor, but it adds enough in the way of new controls to keep the gameplay fun.
  6. Be wary of the insanely long load times.
  7. 55
    It's a passable wrestling game that never gives any impression of credibility. Going through the motions of making a game without any unique concept or vision is fine - if it hasn't been done many times before.

    Great Graphics, AWESOME Soundtrack, great entrances, awsome create modes. Some buggy spots, the brain chop for sure. Also I HATE how the Great Graphics, AWESOME Soundtrack, great entrances, awsome create modes. Some buggy spots, the brain chop for sure. Also I HATE how the audience has like 3 cloned people and they're 2D! So You never see the backs of them, they always face the cam with there reapeatd taunts, great sign selection, and good Ultimate control grapples. 9.7/10 Expand

Also, you had Create an Championship, GM Mode, Exhibition Mode, Create an PPV. I feel like this a Great Smackdown vs Raw Game on the Xbox 360. Expand

    It's good. But, the graphics have numerous problems which shouldn't be there considering the kind of power the system is offering.

    A bad PS2 port with all the minor graphical updates and enless loading screens to go with it! For every new thing they added to the core A bad PS2 port with all the minor graphical updates and enless loading screens to go with it! For every new thing they added to the core gameplay mechanic, they took away with equal measure such as the fewer clothing and body/face sculpting options in create a wrestler mode to the alaming amount of "Tap any button" once youve hit the canvass...not even a semi-automatic rapid fire capable control pad can rise you to your feet before your opponent grabs you for more crunchin' THQ/Jakks/Yukes need to do far better and STOP making the PS2 version first then just porting it across to the others...I know its the biggest user base and biggest return on your work quickly but we...as gamers...are starting to notice more and more!

The series seriously needs some completion (TNA we are looking at you) as to stop the lazy ports of Smackdown v Raw That we are currently having to play through. Could be so much better. Expand

In reality this franchise failed to evolve in any way. I used to see wrestling games as the ultimate beat 'em ups during the PlayStation era but during the last two generations I believe the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise has evolved just enough to take that away from wrestling games. Overall a game that needed to be enjoyed on release by wrestling fans, otherwise a sack of **** entry in a dead gaming franchise. Expand
