Smackdown vs. Raw 2011- Video Game Review

WWE’s latest edition of the Smackdown vs. Raw series surpasses the games of years passed. With new superstars, finishers, and game modes the possibilities are endless to the amount of fun you can have while playing this game.

The game features many different modes of play, such as Road to WrestleMania, WWE Universe and WWE Storyline Designer. All three modes are unique in there own way; in
The Road to WrestleMania Mode you choose the WrestleMania paths of Christian, Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio, John Cena and you challenge the Undertaker as Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, or John Morrison in some very TV quality storylines. New to the game is the live WWE locker room, where you roam around interacting with superstars and divas unlocking the secret characters and legends of the game on your way to the grandest stage of the all.

In The WWE Universe Mode every action affects the results and angles of every superstar. For instance, if Edge defeats John Cena, they start a feud and interfere in each others matches bringing reasoning to the matches that you have, as opposed to winning several matches to gain a championship.

In the Storyline Designer Mode, you can create you own shows and matchups creating dream matches and feuds, or you can play pre-created storylines including Batista, Straight Edge Society and ECW.

Some of the Specialty matches have changed for better and for worse. In the Hell in a Cell match you must now perform a finisher at specific places around the cage to exit it. In Money in The Bank/Ladder/TLC matches it is easier to take done the contract/briefcase/belt no longer impossible or lengthy to acquire, and they’ve added more finishers off the ladder, including an Attitude Adjustment, RKO which is a plus. Finally all weapons are now interactive in the game, for instance if you perform a move beside a weapon, the opponent will sell the move as if he also hit the weapon. The producers did not put a lot of effort into the backstage areas, as the goal is to utilize your surroundings, yet some are impossible to use.

The game play is very similar to the past games, but changes have been to grappling move sets, with a standard arsenal as well as a groggy one change the way you play the game. In the corner you can now prop up you opponent on the top rope or put him in a tree of woe, as you could not before and the ring apron moves have slightly improved, but for the remainder of your in ring actions it’s status quo.

The only real problem with the game is that it’s dated; the game is missing a lot of current champions and members of the WWE roster. With no Nexus, Daniel Bryan, Kaval, Alberto Del Rio the game feels empty. Many other the superstars in the game are no longer on the active roster and were released by the company months before the game hit stores. I understand that superstars like Shad, MVP, Vance Archer and Luke Gallows were recently released, but Batista, Hurricane, and Finlay, are unnecessary.

Other than that the game is top notch and is highly recommended to any fan of the series.

WWE: Night of Champions 2010 DVD review

Four championships changed hands on a night where every World Wrestling Entertainment belt was on the line, resulting in a historic Night of Champions pay-per-view extravaganza last September.

The WWE Championship belt, the WWE Tag Team belts, the United States belt and for the first time ever the WWE Women’s Championship belt and the WWE Diva’s Championship belt were unified. There is now no longer a WWE Women’s belt after that match, as WWE is now calling it the WWE Unified Diva’s Championship.

Night of Champions started off with a solid contest, as Dolph Ziggler, accompanied by his girlfriend Vickie Guerrero and NXT rookie Kaitlyn, defended his WWE Intercontinental Championship belt against former champion Kofi Kingston. This match was the end of a long feud between the two competitors, and there was an extra stipulation that if Ziggler lost by disqualification he would lose his belt.

The second match was the first ever non-title match ever in the history of Night of Champions, hometown hero CM Punk battled against the Big Show. Punk addressed his love and hate for Chicago before taking a pounding from the seven foot giant. Short, but enjoyable for what it was.

The Miz against Daniel Bryan has been a long student-versus-protégé war. Bryan finally got his chance to prove to the world on a big stage that he is superior to The Miz when it comes to wrestling. Also known as Bryan Danielson, fans of Bryan who have complained about the way he has been used in WWE should be more than satisfied with the outcome of this match.

For the second straight year in a row at Night of Champions, Melina squared off with Michelle McCool. This time it was a Lumberjills match and this time it was a unification match. With a major assist from Layla, McCool won the new championship belt and is now co-holder of the belt with Layla. Both of them must defend the belt on RAW and Smackdown.

Undertaker against Kane in a No Holds Barred match for the World Heavyweight Championship belt was a long awaited battle as Taker was coming back from being in a vegetative state at the hands of Kane. The match is mainly a brawl, but for the most part a one-side brawl. Kane is now taking advantage of the fact that Taker’s match at WrestleMania 26 took something out of Taker. Kane is finally stepping up and becoming the dominate force he was always groomed to be.

The WWE Tag Team Championship belts were defended in a five-team tag team turmoil match. This match showed the limited teams currently in WWE and the slow fall of the Hart Dynasty as a team. The match did help showcase a variety of talent in a short period of time.

The Six-Pack Challenge for the WWE Championship belt closed the show with a shocking outcome, but if you look at the cover you can tell that Randy Orton walked away with the belt. Regardless, the match is a unique contest that saw the top stars on RAW gang up on, and betray each other in order to become the main champion on RAW. Chris Jericho’s last PPV appearance for quite a while is shockingly brief.
