Smackdown vs. Raw '06 is a must have forany wrestling enthusiast! Every since I picked up the first Smackdown, THQ has contiued to outdo themselves! Which leaves the question, "what more can they do?" And that I have yet to figure out.
I've been playing this franchise, loyally for 7 years, so once u figure that what I say is true, "come see me and I'll make u famous!"

I don't want any to think that this is a bad game because it isn't, but I do think it can be better. Know before I go to the bad lets start at the good.
1.Gameplay I believe the gameplay is different and it is trying to make the game a little funner but I do think the WWE and THQ can allow there games a little bit more freedom for example a hardcore match I don't want to be getting the same weapons from under the ring I want to be able to get trash cans and thumbtacks or go different places. These are the things that make the gameplay somewhat okay but it could be better.
2.Controls I believe that THQ have gotten the controls just right in this game its so easy to execute different moves and to counter them the controls are perfect.
3.Sound/Music I think this is where the game got bad at through the game you here the same songs and the same noises throughout the game I don't want to here one song over and over and over, but the voice acting is great the wrestlers did a very good job.
4.Graphics I think the graphics are great they really do a good job on the graphics the really bring out how big the wrestler look in real life. I think the pyros were poor and could have been a lot better(I'm thinking day of reckoning) the pyros did not live up to there gamecube or xbox coutner parts.
5.Story They say that the season mode allows different endings and more than the other WWE games I think that they can do better with the story. I mean lets just be honest there are only 4 different stories in the game unlike in Here comes the Pain or Shut your mouth, but nonetheless they all are good stories.
6.Overall I think that THQ can learn and fix there mistakes in this game and that they really did a very good job with this one it has its ups and downs but it still could be better than what it is although it is great already, why make a game great when you can make it excellent. I think you should rent it first then if you like it buy it. I bought it. LOL

Waht Can I say? The THQ WWE games are great and I do think they are getting better and better. I think the season mode is lacking but even then you cannot put it down. The online gaming is great, the only drawback are all of the cheaters out there. But, nothing feels better than beating somebody who you know is really, really good. A must have for anybody and if you don't want to buy it you will probably rent it for a month or two so you should have decided to keep it anyways.
