SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 easily represents the biggest leap forward for the series. While previous entries certainly piled on the match types and character rosters, the new creation aspects of SvR 2010 make it the best and most immersive WWE video game experience to date. Between creating your own WWE storylines, playing other community-created stories, taking on one of the six new Road to Wrestlemania modes, or being challenged in multiplayer versus matches (online or off), there are plenty of ways to get into SmackDown vs. Raw 2010. So get in there, get creative, and above all, make sure to lay the SmackDown!
Overall then Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 is the best wrestling game to have been released in years. The gameplay is as solid as ever and with a roster of 67 wrestlers, plus secret characters to be unlocked, you won't get bored of the variety. But the real revelation is the use of user-generated content - this really is a revelation in the wrestling universe and with a few tweaks, namely unlimited CAW use, it could make the likes of E-Feds completely pointless. Buy this game just for this feature alone if you have ever enjoyed wrestling. It is just that good.
Recently, wrestling fans have had plenty of reason to be cynical. Asked to pay more money, more frequently, and for a product generally considered to be of a lower quality than a decade ago, there’s a distinct weariness to following the sport felt by enthusiasts far and wide. It’s nothing short of joyous, then, that Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 is so much more than a lazily thrown together update of last year’s game. Plenty expected such an offering and, indeed, would have handed over their money religiously just to keep up, but the high production values and quality of content showcased here could well have heralded a golden era for WWE videogames.
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 pour la plus grande joie des fans.
Another strong entry in the series, but one that does not bring enough fresh ideas to the table to truly make it stand out. Sure you can make your own story, but the controls and plots are fiddly to manage. For wrestling fans this is a sure fire purchase, but for the rest of us, it is a fun fighting game at best.
Smackdown vs. RAW 2010 offers a lot of subtle improvements over last year's game and includes a lot of new, diverse content. The story designer allows anyone to script their own road to Wrestlemania and could conceivably provide new storylines for as long as players embrace it. The game is still plagued by some lingering problems, however, and one has to wonder how much mileage this series can continue to get out of its current model before there isn't enough new stuff to entice players to make another purchase. Whether or not next year brings a significant overhaul remains to be seen, but until then, wrestling fans are sure to enjoy this well-rounded and entertaining product.
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 is an impressive new direction for the franchise, as it features a way for players to become directly involved with the other side of professional wrestling: the storylines. Sadly, I've been unable to find a playable match online, thanks to severe latency issues. So I can see myself downloading funny content online and playing it locally, but I just don't see the incentive in trying to find good ranked matches online when the network code is so poor. Still, if you're the creative type, then WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 is a great way for you to try your hand at creating interactive entertainment for your fellow wrestling fans. If you've dreamed of breathing life into the tales of grappling adventure that have until now only lived in your head... well, now you can.
