    The fact that Smackdown! Vs RAW manages to both encapsulate the essence of the WWE while also delivering a highly skill-based and technical beat-'em-up means that even those without a taste for wrestling will be able to enjoy at least most of what the game has to offer.
  2. The best wrestling game on the market, period, exclamation point.
  3. If you’re a wrestling or a Smackdown fan, you’ll go nuts over this year’s Smackdown! vs. RAW. However, if you’re looking for an in-depth, stat-tracking online wrestling title, you’ll want to hold off for future installments and simply rent this one.
  4. 80
    There aren't as many improvements as we thought there would be, and with games such as "Wrestlemania 21" on the way for the Xbox, one would have expected that THQ would have released a much higher quality game than this one.
  5. 80
    The first wrestling game to offer online matches, but sadly this feature just isn’t up to snuff. You can select either a standard match or a bra-and-panties match, and then after venting your frustrations on a silent, nameless opponent, you’re done.
  6. The story mode is still quite impressive and has plenty of length to it.
  7. Some intuitive additions to the gameplay save this title from being decidedly average, but on the whole it feels like a missed opportunity much like the Angle/Puder affair.
