Before we had the opportunity to check out Smackdown vs. Raw 2011, Max and I decided that we needed to do our homework. We sat down at Dtoid HQ the night before to get some quality time with Smackdown vs. Raw 2010. It was immediately apparent to me that these games are no joke, they really do strive to be a true wrestling simulation. This was definitely a huge leap from the Smackdown! that I was previously familiar with.

We played with some of the different match types, including the popular Hell in a Cell, and I spent a good chunk of time creating my own Superstar with the character creator. I wanted to ensure that we had a solid basis for comparison when checking out the new game. We took mental notes on everything, from the visuals and sound to gameplay and feel of the controls.

I was definitely a huge wrestling fan when I was younger, always keeping up with the latest happenings on TV and in the older games. Sadly, I managed to fall out of it in more recent years. Fortunately, I have been eager to get back into the swing of things and SvR 2011 was the perfect icebreaker!

WWE Superstars are constantly upping the ante in and out of the ring. Whether it’s with equipment such as tables, ladders, and chairs, stipulations like Hell in a Cell, or backstage hijinks like car accidents, wrestlers do their best to entertain and please their fans. But the spontaneity and variety of the WWE is difficult to recreate in a videogame; it’s tough for THQ to keep up with new Superstars and matches.

This year, THQ is raising the bar for itself. WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 brings a host of improvements and additions that fans have been clamoring for -- and one major new mode that wasn’t a request, but looks to transform the way people play the game.

On Assignment: WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010

THQ officially announced WWE: SmackDown! vs. Raw 2010 and Destructoid was there to capture every moment of the amazing press event.  Watch as Ted DiBiase almost tosses me out the window, my tender momemt with Cody Rhodes, and Matt Hardy makes me his little borther. Don't worry, this isn't the first time I've crossed paths with WWE Superstars. Co-Starring in Brooke Knows Best has thought me the ancient art of taking a chair to the face from the Hulkster himself. 

After your're done watching our "On Assignment" feature, make sure to hit the jump for my full hands-on preview of SvsR 2010. There's plenty of pictures and tons of video (and writing too!), which highlight all the neat new features and upgrades to Create-A-Wrestler, Create-A-Finisher, and the all new Story mode.
