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. Wrestling fans probably already have this one. Other people may want to give this game a look.
  • 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

WWE SmackDown! VS. RAW 2009

  • Excerpt: THQ’s Smackdown series has been laying it down ever since the days of Blasto, but lately the franchise has gone through some hard knocks. Uninspired yearly releases glittered with marginal improvements haven’t exactly been kind to the brand, and neither has the engine, which has aged about as well as Hulk Hogan. Attempting to prove the series isn’t down for the count just yet, Smackdown vs Raw 2009 enters the ring with a toned-up list of features.

  • Excerpt: The WWE SmackDown franchise has become a staple for THQ ever since they've gained the WWE license from the, now defunct, Acclaim. From the start, the series has been a smash hit and a financial success for THQ. So it's no surprise that nearly every single year following the first release has been a new SmackDown game (the first two SmackDowns both came out in 2000, in fact). So now, we're at the tenth game, a follow-up to last year's absurdly flawed and poor effort.

  • Excerpt: WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw returns to the console world with this review focusing on both the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 versions. THQ once again allow gamers across the world to enjoy one of the most entertaining "sports" as they wrestle their way to victory with new maneuvers, gameplay modes and the biggest change to the franchise, in-depth story modes.

  • Excerpt: Another year, another visit to the Smackdown Hotel. Indeed, THQ’s series is the number one fighting game franchise in the world, and with the 2009 edition, the development team have clearly been doing their research into what the fans actually want to see. Outside of the ring. The quite awesomely presented “Road to Wrestlemania” feature puts you in control of one of six (or seven, technically) WWE Superstars as they battle to get to sports entertainment’s biggest show.

  • Summary: WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2009 is a solid title in the series. It's still not perfect - none of the games have been - but wrestling fans will enjoy this despite some flaws.
