So I've been revisiting past wrestling games a lot recently, generally my favorites on the PS2, and I've noticed that my favorite in terms of just.. well, wrestling, is the original SmackDown Vs RAW game, or SmackDown Vs RAW 2005. The movements of the models, animation on moves and reversals all just seem so fluid to me, and I feel like I can legitimately tell a story with wrestlers in the ring in this game. I've been playing the PPV Mode a lot recently and fantasy booking past events from the 2004/2005 era. The only thing that turns me off is how frustrating the A.I. is sometimes, sometimes they'll pin after a regular move and it'll actually end a match which is so annoying, and when they have me KO'd after a finisher on the mat next to the ropes instead of pulling me away, they just don't know what to do and continue to attack.
