Posted on October 16, 2007, Chris Wrasslin’ Fans, Check Out Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 Demo on Xbox 360
I haven’t followed wrestling in many many years, but last year I had to play Smackdown vs. Raw 2007 and actually found to be a fairly fun game. Sure, I didn’t recognize half the faces, but I still had fun, which was a testament to the game. Today the demo for the annual series was released on the Xbox Live Marketplace (1.2 GB) for Smackdown vs. Raw 2008, which is releasing on November 13.
New features this year include Superstar Fighting Styles and the new struggle/submission system. I’m particularly interested to see the latter, since the submission system in every wrestling game I’ve ever played has been too focused on things on your HUD, and not on the on-screen action.
