WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008
What's with this game.
First of all why does it have to be touch screen to do just about everything. Whats the whole point of this game if you can't get extreme and you can't even get out of the ring. The wrestle can't move at all so you can only control him with the stylus. What happened to playing with the controls and being able to grab ladders and getting on the top rope to do a high flying move. The characters are bad, the controls are bad, the graphics are bad, and don't get me started on the matches. The matches are one on one and besides who would want to play 10 of the same matches every day. Story mode is so bad the the stylus does all the work and doesn't let your fingers do any of the work. Hardly any characters to play with so eventually you'll get so board that you would rather do nothing than play this. So if your a gamer that likes awesome games don't buy this because later on you will totally regret buying this game.
Best game Ever!!!!!!!!!
I own all the other Smackdiown vs Raw games, and I never stop playing them, and I can't wait for this one. Also i look forward for the DS one, and i thing its going to be Awsome!!!!!.
Another example of touch screen botchery
This was the first installment of "WWE SmackDown vs. RAW" on the Nintendo DS, and when it was announced, the renderings looked pretty good (at first). But the statement in which it would be operated by touch screen probably led to some worries. And, as expected, the game looked horrid. For starters, all the wrestlers, from Rey Mysterio to Kane, were essentially the same size and build, and therfore made things look uneven (add to the generic pre-match intro where you have the snarling guy taking on the jumping guy). Another hassle was that you were severely limited in terms of what you could do. You had to choose an icon, but it was also in real-time, which meant that you had to act quickly, lest you get punched or put in a hold. Instead of just going around the ring to set up something, there was essentially 4 spots in the entire ring the wrestlers were to be set at: the center of the ring, near the ropes, near the turnbuckle, and with one wrestler either placed on the turnbuckle or trapped in the ropes. Then there is the "Road to Wrestlemania" storyline which made no sense. If you chose a SmackDown or RAW wrestler, the idea is that you arrived and immediately get a title shot. However, if you win, you immediately are stripped and shipped over the other brand to wallow around for essentially a year. On ECW (where you had the choice of CM Punk or... Snitsky?), the idea was some sort of an "invasion" storyline that doesn't pan out. During the story, I was playing as "Hardcore" Bob Holly (the gimmick was that he was an exclusive wrestler to this version), and the lines that the wrestlers had said were essentially cookie-cutter (not a complaint given the fact that it was probably needed to do so, but...). Worse yet, there are moments where you might get stuck in a certain objective, but the wrestler wasn't coded to appear at a certain location. Therfore, you were trapped and could not advance at all. The sequals did take some baby steps, and while neither were perfect (2009 was a drastic change, but still had its own hassles), they were lightyears ahead of this version... easily one of the worst games ever on the DS.
benoit is a legend
ok so benoit screwed up...look at his accomplishments over the years. He deserves to be a legend. Look at Eddie, he did steroids. I hate how people like the lakerfan dude underneath me think that steroids tainted the WWE. If you really thought that Benoit was the first to use 'roids, then you must be really stupid. Thats all the WWE is. But strength really has nothing to do with competing. Look at Mysterio and all the other cruiserweights. They could barely pick up a pencil but everyone loves them because of their speed and agility. OK, so what if wrestling isnt real, its about entertainment. What do you think the E stands for?? So look at this, even though benoit wasnt all there, his accomplishments in the ring and his popularity stands out way more than his recent rampage!
i got htis game!!
YEs! i got this game today! it is so fun oh my god the grahics are fantastic. and it has cool songs!
Smackdown vs Raw 2008 DS
WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008 on Nintendo ds is gonna be the best game on ds. I hope they put Chris Benoit on the legend superstar. We will miss Chris Benoit and his family. WWE on ds is the best idea!
This game is going to rock cause of the mode in which you make a superstar to an legend and specially the new moves, Hardys boyz the great khali dominatig wwe roster it will be rocking/
it is a good game but is was boring in a way with only the touch screen and choice of wrestlers and bad story lines it could have been better then it is and im a hardcore WWE fan so... get my pioint
This game will suck
chris benoit as a legend? hmmm.... he a murderer, cheater, and a quit frankly, a monster. wrestling is fake and i have no idea why people watch it. if i wanted to watch bad acting i would watch soap operas.
This game looks alsome. I can't believe they are going to make this game for the Nintendo DS. The games story mode will be revolutionary. I can't wait to see how the game will use the touch screen. I also can't wait to see the graphics of the game. Also the game will feature ECW. Even though ECW is kinda lame to me I will be happy to kick butt with Sabu, Sandman, and CM punk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
