    I don't know what game the Reviews where playing but it was not S VS RAW 09! this game is just bad, first they take out GM mode thats one strike 2nd they make all the controls wired thats two three you have to unlock some characters that should be in the game, and last any game mode stinks! I thought TNA was bad but compared to this that game is a 10! they worked harder on this game I don't know what game the Reviews where playing but it was not S VS RAW 09! this game is just bad, first they take out GM mode thats one strike 2nd they make all the controls wired thats two three you have to unlock some characters that should be in the game, and last any game mode stinks! I thought TNA was bad but compared to this that game is a 10! they worked harder on this game aka longer, and it still stinks stop working on that Tag crap and work on making the game more fun to play! I can not belive I wasted $5 just to rent this pice of junk! if I was you I would just stay to the 08 version! Expand

    A clear improvement over "SvR 2008" but a lot of it's still very familiar. [Dec 2008, p.54]

    It's a huge return to form. [Dec 2008, p.114]

    In the end, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 is a good game but one that falls short of its potential. The Roster Editor is a welcome addition, Create-A-Finisher could be deeper but is a great first effort, the Inferno Match is over-the-top but fun, and Road to WrestleMania is one of the best story modes I've seen in a wrestling game in years. However, I can't shake the feeling that I'm playing last year's game when we get down to the nitty gritty match mechanics.
