Loot Ninja: "WWE Smackdown vs RAW is finding itself on familiar ground with the great sports franchises of EA. The series tries to make leaps and bounds every year because the game will sell millions and people need a reason to buy the latest release. Unlike sports, WWE rosters/factions are so fluid, they can change multiple times in a year. More importantly, the action is entirely scripted and for the most part predictable. The ratings of most of the Superstars does not change from year to year that drastically. THQ was able to revamp the single player modes for 2011 making this installment well worth picking up."
