    the game is really fun though it lacks game modes and some major game modes were taken out aka gm mode and 24.7 mode/ season mode but the gamne is still great becuz of the super duper fun road to wrestlemania mode ( very short though 1.5- 2 hrs per wrestler) 5 or 6 to pick from much betetr graphics than 08 and u can put coustom music and the online is good get it even if u hav 08 becuse its exhibiton is better alongside graphics tag team and rwt is a blast Expand

  1. A clear improvement over "SvR 2008" but a lot of it's still very familiar. [Dec 2008, p.54]
  2. 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.
