SmackDown vs. Raw may be the dominating series of professional wreslting games, but it still has plenty of flaws to go around. Here are the top five elements of the series that need to be fixed.
The last game I played was 2008. I'd add dumb ass AI. How bout a counter system that isn't so easy? Animation was mentioned, but seriously get rid of the ones that transitioned from Smackdown 1 and re-do them. And why can't the commentators call the match move for move, instead of talking about how important wrestiling is to a superstar. They could learn something from WWE All Stars
WWE All Stars, is the first wrestling game I'm interested in since Exciting hour. Look it up. Yes, I'm old.
LMAO! The one with superman and darth vader in the crowd?
Ha, and Stay Puff and ZZ Top. Nice work. Have a bubble, and sweep the leg.
Thanks! Man we're old!
This series will never be as good as WWF No Mercy.
Remember... who was on the cover of that game? Think about it... and many wonder why it wasn't as good anymore the passion goes with the TV product being so lacklustre. What can one expect with the joke that is the WWE minus the Rock and Austin? Seriously, those 2 again will single handidly make the whole company better by entertaining and putting rudy poo jabronis over. I will watch wrestlemania this year because of those 2. Sorry for the rant but it could not be helped.
I haven't watched wrestling sense The Rock left. I too will watch WM27 on PPV.
I think Here Comes The Pain is better.
They should revisit the Here Comes Pain formula and build upon that.
The last fun game I enjoyed was wcw vs nwo Tried last years smackdown vs raw and really dissapointed hell it even erased your saves. I platinum that game and returned it >.>
My two favorites will always be Here Comes the Pain and Day of Reckoning. The fast pace and intuitive controls of those games made them really easy to get into, especially when I played with friends. It's a shame the series has gone downhill like it has. Back then, the teenage to adult demographic was mostly watching wrestling, so THQ made the games for those fans. These days, THQ has admitted to streamlining the games for the younger fans. Obviously, this is due to the young demographic that watches wrestling these days.
I for one actually agree with all 5 points, especially #2 and #1
