WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2011
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 is a wrestling game based on the professional wrestling promotion World Wrestling Entertainment, is the twelfth in the WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series, and the last to fall under the SmackDown vs. Raw name before future titles were simply named WWE. Changes include a new physics system that improves the realism of objects used such as tables and chairs, a revamp of the Hell in a Cell match, and the WWE Universe which builds storylines that are placed randomly throughout the match in the form of cutscenes.
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw received generally positive reviews with an average score of 74%, praised by some for its added WWE Universe feature, creation tools, and animations, though criticized for its online lag, glitches, and graphics.
This is a high 2-star rating, only because the age of the game makes it difficult to find online players to unlock two of the online trophies. With a boosting partner however, this could be brought down to a low 2-star rating. The game is not particularly difficult, especially if you have experience with other games in the series, and is more time-consuming than challenging.
Expect roughly 20-30 hours depending on your skills, and ability to find online players.
There are some quick trophies you can unlock in Create mode. After creating something in Paint Tool, create yourself a Superstar and assign your paint tool created sign for the Sign Of The Times trophy. Then select this image as your logo under the section Brand for the Original Brand Logo trophy. Next, create one of each of the three finisher types for the Create With The Moves trophy. Finally, upload an item from each of the categories online to get the Way To Contribute trophy.
Now it's time to actually do some wrestling. It should first be noted however, that you can adjust the game difficult to Easy if you're in a rush for that trophy, and keep in mind that all offline trophies must be earned when fighting against the AI.
Head into Practice Arena, where you will not only learn the controls and gameplay, but unlock both the A Student Of The Game and Magna Cum Laude trophies by completing all the tips.
Next, play through the Road to WrestleMania, where you will unlock several trophies naturally along the way. There are a few other trophies you can earn during this playthrough if you wish to get them out of the way, such as the Magic Number and Pinnings Not the Only Way, so check out the WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2011 trophy guide links under our Links tab.
With that done, you can head into WWE Unviere, where you will play your created superstar and work towards becoming the #1 Contendor for the One Step Closer To The Gold trophy. In this mode, you can also unlock the Intercontinental Champ, the US Champ, the Champion of Champions, the Unified Tag Champs, as well as the Mr Money In The Bank and A Successful Cash In trophies.
Then, simply mop-up any offline trophies you may still be missing. Again, be sure to check out the trophy guides under our Links tab to see what you need and what their requirements are.
At any point, you can work on unlocking the two remaining online trophies. This includes playing an online Royal Rumble all the way through for the Win Or Lose At Least You Tried trophy, and win the match for The Last Man Standing trophy. If you're having trouble finding players, check out the boosting forums under our Links tab.
