WWE Raw is a video game released on the Microsoft Xbox (titled WWF Raw) and Microsoft Windows by THQ in 2002. It is based on the television series of the same name. The game succeeded on the Xbox by WWE Raw 2 in 2003. It was the first WWE game released on the Xbox.
Raw lacks the season modes and special matches that were in many other wrestling games released before it. It features only a few match types with Exhibition mode where the player can play normal matches, a Title Mode and a King of the Ring mode. It also has a “Create a Wrestler” mode where you can create custom players. Another feature is the presence of WWF Museum mode where the players can review superstars and items they have gotten in the game both unlocked and normal.
The Xbox Version has been criticized due to the lack of gameplay modes, however the PC version has received positive ratings for its ability to allow Separate Mods. On release, Famitsu magazine scored the Xbox version of the game a 10 out of 40.
