Description Edit | History

"WWE SmackDown vs. Raw (formerly trademarked as WWF SmackDown!, WWE SmackDown!, and WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW) is a series of professional wrestling video games developed by Yuke's and published by THQ. The first game released was on the PlayStation console in 2000, which prompted the releases of sequels on the PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Mobile, Nintendo DS, and the Wii. The original series, produced from 2000 until 2003, was titled under the SmackDown! name, while the present series, which has been produced since 2004, is titled SmackDown vs. Raw (the Raw brand of games was originally licensed to Nintendo)[citation needed]. In Japan, the series was published by Yuke's and was known as Exciting Pro Wrestling until 2005. Following SmackDown vs. Raw 2006, THQ took over as the Japanese publisher and the series adopted the western name.

Each game is based on World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), a professional wrestling promotion, is playable in different professional wrestling match types, and features a roster based on WWE. A season mode has also been included since the series introduction, which is an arcade-like feature in which the player chooses a superstar to work with through a series of storylines that involve challenging for championships and choosing options that affect the superstar's career.

The WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series reception has been positive, and WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 was rated 31st and 28th (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, respectively) in IGN's "Top 100 Games" list. The series has been criticized for its unappealing season mode, poor audio quality, and small modifications to the features in each game, although it has been praised for presenting an engaging representation of the WWE franchise. Due to the series' popularity and reception, it is among the best-selling video game franchises, with 47 million copies shipped as of 2009."
