Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 is the definitive wrestling title of this generation, so far. This is what WWE fans have wanted for near a decade now, and THQ and Yukes have delivered far beyond the usual yearly updates. A must have for anyone with even a passing interest in the world of WWE.
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 is a massive package. While the absence of online is unfortunate, the game is still as deep as the ocean, with so many modes and so many permutations on those modes that it could take weeks for a player just to experience every mode once. And with so many different superstars and divas available, to say nothing of unlockable extra characters, the game brings to the table just about everything a fan of sports entertainment could hope to have. WWE devotees looking for their wrestling fix won’t go wrong with this version, especially if online is not a consideration.

The best wrestling game on a Nintendo console since the N64 glory days. Impressive.
It’s weird, right? Here’s a game that’s literally an exact port of the PS2 title – even to the point where they didn’t remove the “new” logos on some of the matches even though technically everything here should be marked “new” since this version of the game has never been on the Wii before – and it’s hands down the best SVR game on the console. You get all the matches people know and love from the PS2 versions gone by, all the new stuff for this year, and the amazing addition of Story Designer.
Une fois de plus, THQ a préféré ne pas bousculer le gameplay éprouvé de sa célèbre simulation de catch afin de se concentrer sur son contenu. En dépit de quelques faiblesses techniques, le résultat est vraiment impressionnant. Sans doute le meilleur épisode de la série paru à ce jour sur Wii pour la plus grande joie des fans.
Cheat Code Central
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 isn't a revolution for the series, but it is a hefty package comprised of solid parts. Issues with the lock-on system and collision detection are fundamental faults that, at this point in the series, should have been rectified pre-release. The game also does precious little to instruct players on the basics, and wrestling fans new to the franchise might throw up their arms in frustration. For those who can get beyond the game's shortcomings, however, there's some real value to be enjoyed here.
Sur consoles comme dans la vraie vie, la WWE règne sur le monde du divertissement sportif. Chaque année Smackdown Vs. Raw nous promet la meilleure simulation de catch sur console et, une fois de plus, le contrat est rempli avec cette édition 2010. Un millésime de choix, complet, blindé de modes de jeu, de paramétrages et d'options de personnalisation, avec en plus un nouveau système de commandes débarrassé des vieux secouages de Wiimote tellement épuisants dans les précédents opus. Bref c'est du tout bon, même si les versions PS3 et Xbox 360 sont avantagées, en raison de l'apport non-négligeable du jeu en réseau et de la communauté en ligne, absents sur Wii.
Smackdown vs. RAW 2010 offers a lot of subtle improvements over last year's game and includes a lot of new, diverse content. The new creation tools are robust, though with no online sharing, much of the potential will go unrealized. The lack of online play is a strange and isolating omission, but those who have a friend to play with will appreciate the refined action, bigger move sets, and numerous match types. While this year's entry is an overall improvement over last year's, the game is still plagued by some lingering problems, and one has to wonder how much mileage this series can continue to get out of its current model. As it is, the refined action and new creation tools may not be enough to entice series veterans to make another purchase. Smackdown vs. RAW 2010 is a well-rounded and entertaining product, but its limitations keep it from earning a title shot.
Video Game Generation
WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 has added a few new features over its predecessor, many of which represent actual improvements compared to last year’s version. Sadly, a few other, equally desirable options and functions were removed in order to make room for them. Further, the Wii version, strangely enough, given that it is by far the most popular of the 3 systems on the market today, appears to be missing some functions present in both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. While the game being more or less prêt a porter is nice, and some of the storylines are fun, some of the conditions imposed to complete those storylines are not. If proper instructions were given, and someone other than the “top sellers” were used for these storylines instead, it would have eliminated a lot of wasted time, and left a better taste in this reviewer’s mouth.
