wwe svr 2010 i must say i am thoroughly impressed with, to me its the first SOLID wwe game for the ps3 it really is great. i like the challenge factor levels, haven't tried the storyline mode, but the create a wrestler is very well put together,i like the wwe days of yester year from the 1980's and such so i can create alot of the old wrestlers, graphics are good but could be a little better, but as long as the game is over all solid, i'm ok with that enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

The Smackdown vs Raw series has always been a popular series. And Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 is no exception. Is it worth a buy or a rent? Let's take a look.
The Graphics are excellent for the superstars. Everyone looks the way they should. Where it falls flat on it's face is with the crowd. The crowd still looks like paper cutouts, as they did it previous SVR games. Clipping is still an issue in SVR 2010, as you'll see some very weird glitches occur when wrestling.
The sound is excellent for the superstars. Their music is reproduced here just as their themes in WWE are. However where this falls short, is not being able to listen to custom sound tracks when your having online matches. For example, if you make a Hulk Hogan CAW (create a wrestler) and use "Real American" as your theme song, when you play in any online matches, only you will hear the theme song. Nobody else in the match will hear it. This completely negates the entire reason for even having custom sound tracks to begin with.
Controllers are slightly different from SVR 2009, as this years version you have a single reversal system instead of using both L2 and R2 to reverse. However it's based on timing. If you miss the chance to reverse once, that's it your done. No second chances are given.
Game play 6/10
If you enjoy creating CAWS, or your own story lines, you'll enjoy SVR2010. Being able to share your creations with others is great. Game play is fast and fun with friends off line.
Online Play 1/10
Online play is horrendous, there is no other way to describe it. You'll be constantly lagging in matches, the one button reversal system based on timing will have you cursing at the screen constantly as you'll not be able to counter for jack due to lag in every match. People will spam the same moves on you over and over and over again, and constantly try to pin you over and over again due to the lag.
The More things change the less they stay the same

I have been a fan of this user friendly series for years, and for some reason it has either been watered down even more......or with the roster I just don't care anymore. I do like the new features such as the training facility as soon as the game starts up. This way you can learn the new moves but doesn't help how to counter, or use the specaility matches such as inferno or cage matches. There are tutorials now and then during faster load times.....And yet I wanted some of the old matches such as casket and buried alive than inferno and why is there only 6 man elimanitaion matches not 4 on 4 or 5 on 5? Another nice feature was road to wrestlemania but you only get to chose five superstars to play you can't pick your own. Santanio Marella and Kane deserve RTW stories. Another new features is pick your own story mode. It is user feature if you have the patience and you can upload it online where other online players can play. With this you pick the dialogue, matches, ect. Also the Classic WCW, WWF, European and Hardcore Belts are back to put on the line in the story mode feature. Career is not bad, it repliactes the general manager mode that was used in SVR 2005 and 2006. Here you pick your brand superstars and then you start off for the I-C belt to the WWE championship. Problem are the controls, easy less but for some reason a little clunky at times. I found myself hittiing the referee too many times that I almost got a DQ. Also the AI agasint the computer is still horrible. I played a six man tag only to have the AI break the pin too many times even after my opponent started bleeding. There is some realism espically when they bleed or holding themselves in pain. I have mixed feelings, but I think we could do W/O the divas and bring back the old school legends. Multiplayer is the most fun, as well as create modes as I stated earlier, just have a lot of patience and you'll be presentally surprised.
