Sur­passed in re­cent times by 2K’s cur­rent series, Raw2 none­the­less jus­ti­fies a Hall of Fame spot as the last ex­clu­sive-to-Xbox WWE game. There was a time when each con­sole would get its own spe­cific grap sim, and this stood out for in­no­va­tive el­e­ments which have been lost in time – such as walk­ing us­ing the D-pad but seam­lessly break­ing into a run via the left stick.

Also cu­ri­ous upon re­flec­tion is the abil­ity to com­plete for heavy­weight men’s ti­tles, such as the WWE Cham­pi­onship, with fe­male char­ac­ters – a nod to Stephanie McMa­hon and Chyna’s in­ter-gen­der matches of the time. From a ros­ter stand­point, it re­mains the only WWE game to fea­ture Nidia, Jamie Noble, and Chris Nowin­ski.
