WWE’s latest video game offering is finally completed. WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 will be released in the US on November 13th for PS3, XBOX 360, Nintendo Wii and PS2. The game has been reviewed by IGN writer Greg Miller and got a 7.5 (“Good”) overall rating. Here is Greg’s overall impression of the game: Here’s the thing, this is some of the most fun I’ve had on the mat in a wrestling game in a long time and after three and a half months of playing it, I still look forward to putting it through the paces each morning. The controls are great and make the act of wrestling shine. However, I can’t score this game as high as last year’s PS2/360 title or pervious installments of the franchise. Single-player 24/7 Mode is a step backward for the series, the Create-A-Superstar and GM 24/7 are basically rehashes of last year’s product, and the same complaints we’ve had for years — awful AI, lame commentary, poor collision detection — are still rampant. Plus, the lack of online voice chat saps some of the fun of multiplayer. Is WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2008 a fun game? Hell yeah, but it’s the same fun you’ve been having for the better part of a decade.
