  1. This game touts one of the most expansive “create a superstar” modes I’ve seen yet. You can easily spend hours just making a character exactly what you want him, her or it to be.
  2. This is such an improvement over "WWE Raw" it's not funny.
  3. By far the biggest problem with Raw 2 is the audio. The menu music is solid, but everything else is horrendous.
  4. Anchor did the wrong thing in slightly refining the already crappy gameplay instead of either totally refining it or totally rebuilding from scratch. Another big mistake was leaving the AI kick/pin cycle in the game. It gets aggrivatingly annoying.
  5. 60
    While significant improvements are obvious in most aspects of the game, the ghost of the original title's schizophrenic gameplay still haunts Anchor's latest.

    All the characters have a cartoony look to them, and few of the faces look like the people they're supposed to represent. [Nov 2003, p.107]

    The title makes no bones about the unfinished state of the wrasslin' found within. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.95]

    Incredible create-a-wrestler, decent play scheme, TERRIBLE A.I. Best played with four people, and if so, you're better off buying the Incredible create-a-wrestler, decent play scheme, TERRIBLE A.I. Best played with four people, and if so, you're better off buying the PS2's Smackdown Shut Your Mouth game, which supports SIX players. Expand
