As usual, WWE Smackdown Vs Raw, like its predecessor provides an enjoyable experience when it comes to playing a wrestling video game. Graphics are detailed and real life wrestling characters are well recognisable while playing matches. Cut scenes provide surprises during gameplay as well. It is the last release in the WWE series to feature Shawn Michaels, Matt Hardy and Batista as playable characters.
The physics system of the game has been revamped as well as objects no longer react in the same way to damage. For example, a table can break in multiple ways depending on a character falling on it. Chairs, for the first time are throw-able objects as well.
Characters can be created in WWE Smackdown Vs Raw with their own unique styles, attributes and costumes depending on the player’s choice. They can participate in competitions with original characters and are subjected to varied reactions depending on the player’s in-game behind-the-scenes actions.
Finishing moves are customisable as well and winning is no longer guaranteed by memorising a bunch of moves and using them helter-skelter without any planning during a match. Opponents have to be carefully positioned as well as timing has to be spot on for a shot to have the desired effect. Attribute points can be earned as well to improve fighting styles, speed and damage.
- WWE Universe: – It is a new game mode, which has been incorporated for the first time in the WWE series. It is a combination of the normal Career Mode and real time WWE events meaning a player can virtually create a whole new storyline while playing with their character (original/created). They can participate in real time events, which are introduced in the WWE calendar as well as create their own matches, which are automatically combined with their official fighting schedule. Reputation, ranking, rivalries, etc are determined by their actions, performance and career objective. It is basically an infinite universe with immense scope for customization and exploration.
- Road to Wrestlemania: – This game mode involves 5 individual storylines, each of which is packed with action and drama as well as filled with choices which a player has to take in order to progress and depending on these choices multiple outcomes are possible. Players can interact with other AI controlled characters as well in between matches, the results of which also affect gameplay and progression.
