  1. The controls may drive you nuts at first, but give it some time.
  2. All in all, Smackdown vs RAW 2009 looks great, has more than enough game modes to keep the average wrestling gamer busy, and does in some instances make excellent use of the DS’s technology.

    This game needs button control. The season mode is a great start for a new action RPG-like take on the WWE, there are new modes, added direct control for a sort of No Mercy feel (if we could ditch the "circle to grab a guy, tap to punch" controls that just end up getting in the way), create-a-superstar which is off to a great first year, hell in the cell, ladder matches, hardcore, TLC, and so much more to check out.

It is not very fun to do anything in this game because of that. Full Review »
