WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009

Video Game Generation
24 April 2009
  • Summary: Smackdown v. Raw 2009 is actually pretty fun. I haven’t picked up a wrestling title in years, yet this one managed to sneak its way into heavy gaming rotation. The Road to Wrestlemania mode is great, although I wish they had more storylines to play through. Career Mode is boring and feels wasted.
  • Pros: Fun multiplayer, Good variety of matches, Road to Wrestlemania mode
  • Cons: No old-timers, Control scheme isn't explained well and turns into button mashing, Career Mode is boring and bland, especially when compared to the Road to Wrestlemania mode
