Detailed Review: New Smackdown vs Raw 2010 Video Game

Hey I just wanted to send you guys an update for the new Smackdown vs Raw series. I got lucky and got the new SD vs Raw 2010 a few days ago, and just wanted to see if you can post this for all the readers, that are wanting to see how this game is. From playing it the last 2 days, I have to tell everyone, it’s veryy addicting. The character models are done very well, and the arenas are all unlocked, so no one has to win at the PPv’s anymore to unlock them. There are a good 10 or 11 wrestlers that have to be unlocked (including Jesse whom I unlocked in the Road to Wrestlemania…..kind of funny that Jesse is a locked character in the game, but whatever).

Moving on to the gameplay, its a much more TV presentation quality to the game. Theres no more name bars on the tops of the screen, theres a momentum bar at the bottom of their feet, which gives it a more realistic TV event quality. The commentary is not that great however, but it does not affect the quality of the game. The new royal rumble system is awesome!! You can have 2 or 3 on 1 eliminations, under the rope eliminations, under the ropes eliminations, and corner eliminations. And the best thing about the rumbles is the finisher eliminations. One example I seen in the rumble when i was playing, is when R-truth was on the ropes and Triple H took him to the middle of the ring, and pedigreed him. He got up and stumbled acroos to the ropes and triple h clotheslined him, right over. Thats just one example of the finisher eliminations.
