Two worlds collide as the elite superstars square off on
the Playstation 2. WWE comes to life with new additions
to the series including new stare-downs, chop battles, submission
reversals, match tactics, and overhauled Royal Rumble controls.
The Divas are hotter than ever with an enhanced bra and panties
match and to polish off the robust roster, from the halls
of immortality, come a handful of the most celebrated legends
to ever lace up their boots...
Smackdown Vs Raw is, and I'm sorry to state the obvious
here - but I will, only going to really appeal to wrestling
fans. To us Brits in our mid-30s, wrestling conjures up Saturday
afternoons in front of the TV watching Big Daddy and Giant
Haystacks running around in tights and spandex costumes trying
to show how tough they were.
as with most things, American's do things bigger, better and
more theatrical. WWE is a million miles away from UK's
hilariously camp sport. Sure, it's still camp (and hilarious)
but it is far more entertaining - and there are cute women
for the pervy males to dribble over. No longer a sport (?)
watched predominately by little old ladies and young lads,
wrestling is now an event the whole family can enjoy.
game attempts to capture all the excitement of the television
shows. Okay, there are a few minor bugs: odd audio commentary
that relates to two guys in the ring when you are playing
a mixed sex match; and some very dodgy tactics that allow
one player a very unfair advantage in the dirty locker room
fights where you can pick up chairs and beat your opponent
- basically player one is closer to the chair which means
that player 2's energy will be depleted, almost to the point
of defeat, before the game has really started. But, to be
fair, there is very little wrong with this game.
can create your own character - which can take hours if you
want to tweak it so that it looks as close to the real you
as possible - and play any one of a number of different match
styles. There are also characters and arenas to unlock.
the good old bra and panties match is still there. Simply
try and rip your opponents clothes off to leave her in her
underwear. There is also a special "spanking" mode
the most fun is to be had in the two player mode. There's
nothing quite like drop kicking your boss in the face only
to hear him mumbling something about his controller not working
a doubt the best wrestling game on the market - although the
format is getting a little tired and THQ will have to revitalise
the next game in the franchise if they want to keep fans happy.
