Sure, it feels like a suped-up version of last year's title here and there, but there's nothing wrong with that when the game is this much fun.
Smackdown vs. Raw is showing its age, but there's plenty of fight left in this old superstar.
I appreciate the attempt to flesh out Road to Wrestlemania, even if it's a bit inconsistent in this early stage. WWE Universe mode is my favorite addition this year, and it could easily be the new marquee mode if they improve it in future titles. [Dec 2010, p.111]
This is yet another good installment of the series after it found the right way years ago. It has not many new features and seems to be focused in improving some things, but it lacks some freshness, despite the new WWE Universe mode.
It's unquestionably fun. But that doesn't excuse the many, many problems, most of which should have been ironed out when the series was a PS2 exclusive over five years ago.
