Game Title: Smackdown! Vs RAW 2008
Date Of Release: Tuesday, November 14th 2007
Console: Nintendo Wii
I purchased my reserved copy of Smackdown Vs RAW 2008 for the Wii console. This game is a great step forward compared to the í07 version released earlier this year. For Wii players, they would enjoy this more because itís a fully interactive game, you must move both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in order to complete certain maneuvers.SMACKDOWN! VS RAW 2008
For wrestling fans, I believe they would enjoy this game the most because mainly of the graphics and the introductions to new wrestlers that were not featured in the í07 version of the game. New wrestlers like CM Punk, Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, Tommy Dreamer, Sabu, And Extreme Expose Member Kelly Kelly From ECW. Also they have updated the entrance themes of certain wrestlers.
They have also brought up a few wrestlers that should have been introduced in the í07 version but were not. If youíre a Hardy Boy fan then youíll be glad to know that the game makers have introduced Jeff Hardy into the game, no more Jeff Hardy CAWs (Create A Wrestler) Anymore people. The one thing most fanís were hoping for was all the Divaís when in fact they only brought 7 into the game.
Mickie James, Maria, Kelly Kelly, Melina, Candice Michelle, Torrie Wilson, And Ashley Massaro.
There is a sour note in the game, every game has bad qualities but I was disappointed in the sour note in this game. Unlike all the other versions, for story mode (Main Event in game) itís a horrible story mode version compared to the other games. If you were looking for story mode cutscenes and voices etc then this isnít the game for you. They excluded that from game play due to the fact they needed more space for the new wrestlers, not to mention all the different arenaís.
Well one thing I liked the most was the new selection of Arenaís to wrestler in. They have everything from RAW to Smackdown! To ECW. They also have EVERY PPV that WWE & ECW have put on the air since New Years Revolution. This includes recent one as well. Like one PPV you might remember known as Cyber Sunday, they added that in. They also have old ones like December To Dismember.
Overall this is a great game if you want to play it for the wrestling and not for story mode. But into order to unlock wrestlers and PPV Arenaís you MUST complete story mode and make it to Main Eventer. The graphics overall deserve a 10-10 rating, they made it so sharp you could literally see the wrestler sweat when they do their entrance.
My Rating Of Smackdown Vs RAW 2008: 10 Stars
