November 14, 2006 - Good - WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2007 for the PSP might be considered weak in light of the online and offline features in the hulking Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 versions. By itself, it's a thoroughly entertaining wrestling game.
November 6, 2006 - Good - As a PSP title, WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2007 is very impressive - it is, after all, a portable version of a great PS2 game with some of the usual compromises developers make when porting to the PSP.
December 5, 2006 - Good - Think of SmackDown 2007 as the Ric Flair of videogames -- a wrestling great with enough titles and fond memories to keep its forward momentum for another year, but aged to a point where we're questioning how much longer it can go.
December 4, 2006 - Mediocre - The improvements made to the 2007 PSP edition of SmackDown are indeed commendable, but the exclusion of its focal selling point is a huge blow to the overall worth. In its current state, it's a crippled -- yet still decent -- wrestling title.
