    Feels old gen and not next gen, and their lies it's major problem. A must for only the most seasonal WWE fan. 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.

    The roster update is nice, and the graphics pretty solid. But there are still some serious gameplay issues lingering around from last time, and some new ones added. First it is entirely to easy to climb out of a steel cage, those matches should be at least 15-20 minute battles. Basically the first guy to nail his finisher wins. 2nd, why the hell did they make it so damn hard to recvoer The roster update is nice, and the graphics pretty solid.

Playing with my kid, I got a little tired of just getting owned after falling to the mat from a punch. Also I would have liked to have seen some NEW match modes, and why aren't the ECW guys in there? Its a 360 game, we should have complete rosters. It is nice to see some new legends available, and season mode is a lot better than last year. This is a must for WWE fans, but the casual fan might lose interest. Expand

    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 A bad PS2 port with all the minor graphical updates and enless loading screens to go with it!

    WWE Smackdown! vs. RAW 2007 has its moments, but the 4 player gameplay turns out to be a free for all mash fest. Confusion ensues when also playing six player matches. If you're into the WWE games, buy it; if you're unsure, rent it first.

    If you love wrestling, it'll make you squeal - if you don't, you'll think it's broken. [Dec 2006, p.68]
  2. Tag matches still feel like handicap matches, mainly owing to the fact that your AI-controlled partner doesn't actually do all that much, even when you call for help.

    But, for as fresh as it seems, it also feels horrendously outdated in terms of story and characters. [Dec. 2006, p.128]
