    The graphics and combat glitch a lot, but they've fixed some clipping issues, and the achivements aren't that great, but that's not really going to affect the gameplay. Converting a Highlight reel into an enterance movie is silly because it means that you can only use footage from one match. The actual gameplay feels fine. Combat can feel chuncky at times but that would The graphics and combat glitch a lot, but they've fixed some clipping issues, and the achivements aren't that great, but that's not really going to affect the gameplay. Converting a Highlight reel into an enterance movie is silly because it means that you can only use footage from one match. The actual gameplay feels fine. Combat can feel chuncky at times but that would mainly be due to your character's weight class or something else to keep the game ballanced; I mean this IS a sports game, not a high octane beat-'em-up. Creating entrances other than your titantron is EXTREMELY flexible, although you have to choose a generic enterance if your superstar has a title. The only thing more customizable than your enterance is your create a superstar. It steels the show, and is just as flexible as character creation in Saints Row 2, with hundreds of clothes, paint, and tatoos to choose from to customize him or her to the max. There are also a ton of moves for you to set your move list, and using them with your own superstar comming out with his own enterance feels as rewarding as any missed achivement oppertunity. In short, the Creation Modes are good enough to be the entire game, except for story editor, which I haven't done. The only part about the combat that needs fixing is auto-lock on, which could make you lose in an handicap match, but you fix it by turning on manual lock on in the options menu. Otherwise, the game rules. Collapse

    The best game in the series yet. Eleven games strong and Yuke's and THQ are still doing the damn thing! A must buy for any fan of professional wrestling.

    I have been playing smackdown vs. raw since the first one in 2004. I have been playing wrestling games since Royal Rumble on the SNES in 1993. THIS, is...without a doubt, the BEST wrestling game I have ever played hands down. Besides the match types, the awesome graphics, the phenomonal gameplay and all of the game modes...the customization and options in this game are ENDLESS!!!

    pretty much the bes wwe game i have seen in years. All the new add ons make it great. But it does fall short in some areas. The restriction of created superstars in story designer. and the create a superstar points only letting you have a limited amount of clothing. But overall great game.

  1. Those who are in the market for a new WWE game will delight in the raft of innovations, which dispel the myth that Smackdown is a gaming franchise that stood still. [Nov 2009, p.72]

    Combines last year's excellent gameplay with a collection of features that should last the entire year. [Issue#51, p.72]

    The gameplay tweaks are welcome and make the experience feel fresh, the presentation is straight from TV, the load times are better than ever, the Road to WrestleMania is still great, you can create your own logos, and the ability to share your stories and characters is invaluable...WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 might not be the greatest wrestling game of all time, but it’s definitely the best the world’s seen in years.
