WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2009

Auracore MediaWorks
2 July 2009
  • Summary: The year of redemption for this long-serving franchise.
  • Pros: More wrestlers, modes, and options than the competition; solid new single-player career modes; tag-team mechanics are a respectable addition to standard gameplay; Improved load-times and actually useful loading-screens; nice incorporation of unlockable content.
  • Cons: Create-a-Finisher is more like a "modify a finisher"; AI is still largely inconsistent; inferno match is an unspectacular new match type; Create-A-Character is in need of a genuine overhaul; still plagued with a bevy of loading screens to sit through.

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2009

Auracore MediaWorks
31 March 2009
  • Summary: THQ's sophomore effort on the DS is solid, if you can look past the sluggish controls.
  • Pros: Remarkable graphics, especially with the wrestlers; decent number of matches and grapplers to choose from; some options make excellent use of the DS's capabilities; excellent Create-A-Character option that puts the next-gen titles to shame; satisfying multi-player experience
  • Cons: Gameplay is both sluggish and unresponsive due to stylus control; career mode is not really all that innovative; AI is largely inconsistent; provides no alternative control-scheme outside of the default stylus option; only one save slot for Career mode and two slots for created characters

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 (DS)

Crispy Gamer
18 November 2008
  • Excerpt: On the debut of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 , I was thinking that the history of wrestling is steeped in so many stories that suck you in and don't let go. If you love soap opera-like narrative, you can move through a cooperative story mode in SVR 2009 that's full of twists and turns. But in the latest SmackDown commercial, the graphics showed realistic wrestling in the ring with human-like bodies and faces scrunching up in pain.

WWE: Smackdown VS Raw 2009 Review (DS)

Yet Another Review Site
3 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Take the Ring on the Road World Wrestling Entertainment brings us their latest edition of its popular video game, Smackdown Vs Raw 2009. Being a massive WWE fan ever since the late 80’s, I got a surge of excitement when I was given the opportunity to write a review of it for the Nintendo DS. Having not tried a wrestling game on this format I was unsure what to expect in regards to visuals, gameplay and sound in comparison to my normal Xbox360 December purchase.
  • Pros: Over 25 WWE Superstars to Choose From, Plenty of Match Modes, Clever New Control System, Improved New Season Mode, Authentic Entrance Sequences and Music, A Must Have For Any True WWE Fans
  • Cons: Repetitive Game play but plenty of superstars to explore, New control method requires some practice and patience, Graphics Not As Good As Other Systems, Rated 15 Which Could Hinder the Younger Fans

Look but don't touch

12 November 2008
  • Conclusion: A step in the right direction after the previous entry, but THQ really needs to shelve the touchscreen control for the inevitable 2010 version
