i have been playin s vs. r since they came out even on the ps1. this game has alot of good things but alot of stuff that really heeds work. pros: graphics are good great weapon selection especially in the ecw match i like the fighting system to an extent a very long story mode( good and bad) good wrestling characters, but need more cons: graphics look the same as s vs. r 1, still look good on the ps2 HORRIBLE cutscences same commentary as s.vsr 1, just differant people saying them the story mode is never differant in either brand, cant even use ecw as a brand controls take some time to get use to not enough wrestlers to choose from story mode is very repetitive
overall i gave this game a 7 because i like what they are trying to do. but the horrible commetary, repetitive cutscenes and that you basically only control your guy when hes wrestling. i can only hope they get it right next year. if you like wwe then rent this game to check out the newer payperview arenas and the extreme rules match, but stick with the s vs r from last year. maybe next year guys.
This is the worst smackdown game ever every year they get worser and worser i cant beleve I waisted 55 bucks on this garbage. Instead of improving it went backwards I mean between the god awful 24/7 mode which sucks in more ways than one I mean for starters it has the same storylines on each brand I mean on smackdown and on RAW and you cant even use ECW. Also it dosent matter which choices you make it still does it;s own thing like if you wanna trade opponents or dont if you pick dont it trades them anyways. And dont even get me started on how god awful deformed and ugly the divas look this year. The Same commentary has been used since the very 1st smackdown vs. raw game the same call names and and the CAW alltogether sucks period. I have nothing good to say about this BS.
I know this much I will never ever buy another smackdown game again. And I have been a loyal smackdown fan since day1 but this is the final draw no more and never again.
i have not gotten this game yet, but i have a question. Can you set up the controller in the classic way like the old games? I know you could do it on 2007, just wondering if you can do it on 2008. I don't like playing with the analog sticks unless i have too.
