Very good... graphics are nice, game play is good, the grapple is a lil hard to get used too, but this game is getting better and better... wish they would leave all the matches from smackdown vs raw 06 in, but its ok... u can finally fight as the champion in the season mode and try to retain the belt which is nice. wish they would update the rosters better... u see the new wrestlers in the intro video to smackdown and raw, but the wrestlers are not in the game itself... worth the money to me, a good pick up for any wrestling fan...
Smackdown "vs" Raw 2007 is an excellent addition to an already succesful franchise. The newly added features in this years edition make the game a must play for any fighting game genre fan, and a must own for any wrestling fan.
This game delivers the Pedigree in style with Graphics that push the playstation 2 to the limits. Wrestlers Don't only the best the ever have, bar the xbox 360 version, but their movements flow seemlisly like their real life counterparts, with all mannerisms in full effect.
The sound effects in the game are really well done. With good new tracks to have for entrance music, or to listen to as you navigate the main menu. In ring sound is wonderful, sometimes so good you can feel yourself cringe as a the mat booms when you hit it.
The new control scheme mixed with added "Hot Spots" to lay the smack down on your opponent are really what makes this title stand out, as the interactive areas are just a pure joy to dish out new forms of punishment in.
Multiplayer is done differently and gets you straight into the action, and is really fun and solid, unless you run into the occasional cheater that can't be pinned, ect.. Also there is the lack of communication with people online. Chatting is rare, and heahphone capability would have been a really nice addition, so you could verbally piledrive your opponant during a match.
Overall, this is a really fun, and satisfing game. The only downsides, are the repeats in the commentary from last year, and some the occasional slow loading screens. That said, Whether you smell what Rock is cooking, or you are taking your vitamins and saying your prayers, There is no doubt you will feel the smackdown from what is the best wrestling game made on any system to date, for months to come.
