    A Few Minor Improvements But It Feels Like A Downgrade Of Smackdown 2007

    Smackdown Vs Raw (Featuring ECW) is one of those games that gets released every year and that one expects to be building on its success and improving in critical areas from last years feedback. The problem is they ha... Read Full Review

    i think it was pretty good, but needed just a bit more work. Lots of wrestlers missing for example.

    First off, i think it was pretty good. The counter reversal system is quite fun, and fighting opponents on legend mode can be a bit of a chellenge. The modelling and character animation is very well done, as well as the ... Read Full Review

    The game is great! Create-a-superstar mode is the bomb! Lot's of interactions in and outside the ring!

    Sm v Raw 08 is a mix of the good and the great... and the there's the not-so-good bits. Like having to spend about an hour on creating just one fully detailed superstar. In saying that, The Create-a-superstar mode is pos... Read Full Review

    A big dissapointment with the so called "improvments" only making the game worse.

    I loved SvR 2007, I truly thought they hit the nail on the head with that game, but they of course had to make 2008 different. The first problem I have is with the new special move storing/stamina system, it is just a ba... Read Full Review

    An excellent game

    First of all, this deserves more than a "6.5" GameSpot. This game is by far the best in the series. With an updated roster, including fan-favorites Triple H, Jeff Hardy, Undertaker, Matt Hardy,Shawn Michaels, Batista, an... Read Full Review
