Best and worst WWE games

For me, the best is the original Smackdown! vs RAW, which had a fun challenge mode, decent season mode (great for speedrunning), good controls, relatively few glitches and a nice soundtrack.

The worst that I've played was WWE '12 which had horrible graphics, was almost impossible to play a full match on the PS3 version without it glitching or crashing, a very weak story and stupid gameplay.

Honorable mention which is simultaneously the best AND worst is Just Bring It for its hilariously bad commentary. "i wanna see ... THE UNDERTAKER do a .... THE LAST RIDE!"

Re: Best and worst WWE games

The best is Here Comes The Pain of course. It's incredible and still holds up to this day.
SD 1
SD 2
SD Shut Your Mouth
SD vs RAW 2006
and the most recent good one is WWE 2K16

The worst:
WWF Attitude. It's fucking terrible but I thought is was the best shit ever as a kid.
SD vs RAW 2009 and 2010
WWE 2K15
Dishonorable mentions: WWE '13, 2K14, 2K16, 2K17 just for the terrible character models not the games as a whole.

Holy Shit

All Time
Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, Mankind, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Batista, Cm Punk, The Rock, Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero

Everyone is buried.

Re: Best and worst WWE games

Some of my favourites that stood out;
WWF Smackdown 2 (LOVE THIS!)
WWE Raw 2 (Much improved version of RAW, see below, and it had a great roster.)
Wrestlemania 21 (The gameplay is so-so, but it had a really good story mode, and I still listen to songs from the soundtrack today. I recall it having good unlockables too.)
Smackdown vs Raw 2007 (I played the story mode and GM mode for hours and hours. As above, it had good unlockables and I wish they still had "the room" which you could decoratre. All in all, probably my favourite WWE game.)

WWE Raw (This is somewhat as a guilty pleasure as it was the first wrestling game on XBOX. Looking back, it was just bizzare. Everything was really slow, and there were these crates near the ramp you could break and there would be really random things in you could use as weapons.)
WWF Attitude/WWF Warzone (To be totally honest I think I am getting these mixed but the one I played was absoloute garbage)
WWE All stars (What was this? I somewhat enjoyed the Legends game, but this took the cartoon element too far)
