Smackdown Vs RAW 2007 has to be the most highly anticipated wrestling game for the XBox 360. The 360 finally had the chance to get away from the weakest genre for XBox; wrestling games. So how does it stack up?
The graphics can be summed up in one word...amazing. Most of the wrestlers look like their real life counterpart, the crowd looks realistic, and the arena/videos look...crisp. The CAWs even blend in with the actual roster.
The controls have been totally revamped, and while awkward at first, they become second nature. The overall gameplay hasn't been changed all that much, with exception to new environmental "hotspots" and Ultimate Control Moves, which allow you to add some variety to your matches. And the season mode is improved.
But the most improved game mode is GM mode. Making it's first appearance last year, Yuke's added even more to it. Storyline writers, news on a mocked up WWE site, and the Power25 will play a huge part in your quest to become GM of the year. This mode seems simple, but looks can be deceiving
But no game is without their faults, and SDvR 2007 is no different. The commentary is a copy and paste job from 06, and there are also some ring announcing glitches (which I have yet to come across, so it may be an isolated problem). Perhaps the major problem is the CAW mode. If you are a big online person, then you may want to refrain from a CAW. For some reason, Yuke's decided that any CAW with a logo, text, design, or flag on them will NOT be eligible for online play, possibly to prevent obscene words and designs.
All in all, this is definitely worth checking out. With the updated roster, improved GM mode, and close to 40 different storylines, this will keep you busy for a few weeks. And that doesn't take into account exhibition matches, which can add months to the game's life.
yet another Great WWE Game from THQ there is no other Wrestling Game out there that even comes close to this Game this series just keeps coming out with Great Features for every Title each Year the Graphics are way Sharper the AI is alot Smarter and even the Audio and Visual of the Audience and and Backgrounds sound and look more Real yes this Game will not let any Wrestling Fans down and i don't know about you but i can't wait to review the Next ...in 2008

WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2007 is overall a fantastic game for wrestling fans of all genders and all ages... The Graphics are sensational and the wide variety of game controls and functionality is just brilliant. It is by far the best wrestling game ever made, Season and GM mode allows real-life events and extraordinary access where you can choose what path your WWE wrestler or Custom-Made wrestler goes down...The Sound is Excellent with loud and clear voices of real WWE wrestlers and the gameplay 10/10, put your opponent through tables, throw them off ladders, into the crowd, grab weapons and signs off the crowd, and much more, an absolutely unbelievable game that i recommend to every WWE FAN in the world!!!
