WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 is a wrestling game based on the professional wrestling promotion World Wrestling Entertainment, and the eleventh in the WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series. While centering on the brands SmackDown and Raw, the game also includes the former ECW brand. Players can select either an in-game player or customize their own, and compete in various matches. Story Designer has been added for players to create a WWE storyline for their character, as well as Superstar Threads which allows customization of attire colors, a Paint Tool for creating logos for their characters, and an expansion on the Create-a-Finisher mode called Road to Wrestlemania.
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 received mainly positive reviews with an average score of 81%, praised for its character creation mode and improvement in gameplay, while some criticized the loading time.
This is a low 2-star rating. While there may be a few matches that can be tricky, and some missable trophies to watch out for, the platinum is reasonably easy to achieve - and even easier if you have experience playing wrestling titles.
Expect roughly 15-20 hours, depending on your skills and experience.
If you're in a rush for that platinum, then you might want to begin things by modifying the options to make this game even easier. Head into Options, then select Gameplay Options, and Match Options. From here, you can select In-Game Options, and set the difficulty to Easy, the Momentum Bar Charge Speed to Fast, and turn off the Stamina System. Then, under Gameplay Balance Options and A.I. Reversal Balancing, move all the bars to the lowest setting (left). Then under Damage Balancing, move the bars to their highest setting. Finally, under Game Balancing, move all the bars to the easiest setting. This will make an easy game even easier.
After that, it's pretty much up to you which direction you'd like to take. There are a few easy create-related trophies you can unlock from the beginning, such as the New Superstar Initiative trophy, which you'll need at the start of your gameplay career, anyway. Also Story Designer for creating an original story, Finisher Of The Year Candidate for creating a dive finisher, and An Original Design by creating an image with the paint tool.
There are basically two modes which you'll need to play through. The first are the Road to WrestleMania stories. Be warned there are a few missable trophies here, but if you follow one of the WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2010 guide links under our Links tab, you should be safe from missing the Nothing More To Collect trophy.
Then there's also the Career mode, in which you should eventually unlock the Career Growth and 2010 Hall Of Fame Nominee trophies with your created character.
While playing through both the Road to Wrestlemania and Career mode, you'll want to be working towards getting 10 wins by submission, 50 wins by pinfall, and perform 100 reversals successfully for their respective trophies.
After all that, it's just a matter of mopping-up any remaining trophies.
