i love the smackdown vs raw franchice but in this and all other smackdown games since bring the pain have felt unrealistic what ever happened to fighting in the stands,why cant you do ground create a finishers why is road to wrestlemania basically the same everytime.i feel like a child playing with smackdown toys,why is all the matches almost the same and yeah you might have dubbed up the create a player but its still lacking the reality i mean look at the wrestlers that were placed on the game they look real and sum may get by with help but most of the create a players look cartoonish.why cant you do finishers off the stage?this game was a disapointment to me.
There were a lot of things that I was impressed with when it came to SDvRaw 2011. The new Road to WrestleMania was very exciting, with the free roaming option now available. WWE Universe is another great game mode since the in-game engine kinda switches everything up on you while you're playing (random cutscenes, having to face another opponent right after your scheduled match, etc.) The only drawback I found while playing is that the grapple system was changed, which in my opinion is for the worse. I was used to being to initiate a strong grapple at any time during the match, and now everything is based on your opponent's damage. I understand that they're trying to make this series more lifelike and close to the real thing, but why do that at the cost of making the controls harder to get accustomed to? Besides that, it looked amazing, played great, and is definetly worth spending the money on if you're a WWE fan and you enjoy the games.
It has some much added features like the WWE Universe were you can play matches without going into a career mode by going to PLAY in the main menu. NEW online features like; new Kelly Kelly Devi's attire and you can play online verses other players in Royal Rumble and others, but I'm not sure. There a lot of new moves to create a move-set or finisher for your player. Now you can add a show brand by making a new logo for your show and adding superstars to it to be like RAW and SMACKDOWN! The graphics are great (if you have a HD TV)! They finally made the practice area a lot easier to accomplish then before with new moves. I was disappointed that they didn't add GM Mode or 24/7 mode but the Story Mode is about the same with new features. This is only my review on it for only 2 days but I'm guessing there would be a lot more to this if I waited.
