Horrible! Graphics were better for 360 on the 2007 version. Its impossible to play a co-op carrer (example tag team titles) with a freind or relative, so your basically stuck playing against each other instead of together.

Smackdown Vs Raw 2008 was a good game" i like the graphics better when Mr Kennedy was introducing himself in the ring. The worst things i don't like about the gameplay are using the right analog stick to grapple, pressing the buttons rapidly just to make the WWE superstar to get up when they are down, and the CPU is so Predictable. I don't like the storyline especially when it's repeated after Wrestlemania. The game has limited features in the Create a superstar mode" For example They have limited clothes to choose from. I don't like the loading time in the game because it's slow. I am disappointed about the limited roster that the game has.

The music in the game was pretty good except for the rap music. In my opinion the best fighting style in the game is the Showman Style because when i choose that style for my superstar that i edit i could steal my opponent's finishing move" I also like when you could edit the WWE superstar's moves, and Entrances" for example i Changed John Cena's finishing move into the Stone Cold Stunner and i made the Undertaker have Kane's ring pyro move" it's pretty cool that players can make funny entrances and moves for the WWE superstars. I like when the game allows me to use WWE Diva's like Melina to lift up a bigger superstars like The Great Khali. Lastly i hope they add Melina's brand new finishing move in the next WWE Smackdown vs Raw game.

I haven't' played a smack down game since here comes the pain. While this is definitely an improvement, it is a far cry from what wrestling really is. Making the actual gameplay into a 3d fighter was good, but too bad it is too loopsided for some characters/styles like brawler and powerhouse.
What they need to do is actually make a good single player mode since wrestling , now is all about the storyline and when you play the game, you are part of the company. Behind the stage things like how much the company likes you and political games you gotta play should be in the game. It's not all just popularity and how much you train. Because in real life, it's all about how much Vince machman likes you and how much the other wrestlers like you. they should even have a mini game of how to cut a promo.

But no, it's all not there because this series is put out every year with a new gimmick and marginal improvements. I'm glad i rented this, definiately not a buy. But it does pass as a game.

Still things like downloading new charatcers should be in now so that the roster is never out of date. Sure charge money for it, its inevitable, but to have that option would actually make the game's life longer.
