11 July 2009
Summary: WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 unleashes a new tag team experience, allowing players to build momentum and attributes, eliminate opponents with high impact double teams and finishers, as well as get the "hot tag" for the win.
Excerpt: This March will be my 6th year as a pro wrestling spectator and as a former yarder and someone who did pro training, I feel very attached to pro wrestling. I love ROH, Chikara Pro, NOAH and all of the good wrestling alternatives.
Summary: In this review you learned that there are tons of characters, all sorts of cool matches, a few different story modes and solid graphics. Oh, and you also learned that I don't like wrestling and get bored by wrestling games. If this is your type of game, then have a great time, everybody else should probably get their kicks elsewhere.

Excerpt: Wrestling wasn't always SmackDown vs. Raw. In fact, it's been a sport since the 9th century B.C., since the mid-Iron Age, when the massive, 74,000-verse "Mahabharata" was written in India. As one gruesome tale from that ancient tome goes, the strong, wrathful Bhima was more powerful than 10,000 elephants. He was pitted against angry king Jarasandha in a throw-down so ugly, so nasty, it certainly didn't last a mere 10 minutes like some of the WrestleMania bouts.
