Smackdown Vs Raw 2009: Reviewed (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Wrestling. A sport that divides people more than political debates and has as much drama as prime time television. When I was a bit younger I used to follow the WWE quite a bit, staying up with friends to watch pay per views til about 4 in the morning. Those times have past though and it’s never really crossed my mind to look towards the Lycra, the Popeye style muscles and testosterone by the crate load.

Hittin' The Road With WWE

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: The king of the ring returns, ditching 24/7 in favor of a stronger story mode Graphics: The in-ring action looks good and some of the animation and hit detection problems from last year are fixed Sound: Same as it ever was, a solid rock soundtrack backs up the annoyingly repetitive commentary Playability: SvR's controls have a learning curve, but you'll be dominating the ring in no time Entertainment: THQ will offer further support for the game with future...

Inside Hotwire 3D
11 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The Smackdown vs. RAW franchise still packs plenty of heat behind its wrestling package. This year’s version just proved there is more to the gameplay than anyone else has anticipated. The latest effort to expand the tag team concept turned out to be a good investment, yielding twice the return on entertainment.

9 April 2009
  • Summary: In what seems to be a pretty reliable occurrence, THQ has put together another solid wrestling title. I really dug the depth of the career mode and as always, the creation system rivals most titles in the industry. Getting in the ring, the slow but sure improvements throughout the series becomes apparent in things like animation, crowds, and learning curve.

The Review Busters
23 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Another year and another WWE game. This year’s game is a big improvement over last years. There really wasn’t a huge improvement over the online play and the same clipping problems are still on the disc. Next year might be better but for now pick this game up if you are a wrestling fan.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Like every other sport game, for better or worse, we also have a yearly WWE game to play. Not that we are complaining, after all the series has been really solid for a few years now. The problem with nearly every wrestling game out there however is that we cannot recall the last time we were blown away by one.

WWE Smackdown! vs. Raw 2009

Operation Sports
26 November 2008
  • Excerpt: The SmackDown series has been around for about as long as WWE Superstar Edge. In that time, he has been on the bottom as a member of the Brood; he has won the tag-team titles multiple times; dropped Christian and worked himself up to Intercontinental Champion; and now he is the current WWE Champion. Can you say the SmackDown series has been as successful? Well, read the review to find out if SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 is the current title holder.
  • Pros: In-ring action as good as ever., Road to Wrestlemania mode is worth the time., Significantly decreased loading times.
  • Cons: Same tired gameplay., Exhibition match commentary., Career mode is a throwaway.

  • Excerpt: After fan complaints of stagnation, Yuke’s responded by trying to make SvR ’09 the freshest entry in the series to date by adding in things that fans have requested for years, like downloadable content, a create-a-finisher mode and the Inferno match, while also bringing back backstage matches and overhauling traditional tag team matches in order to deliver the best series entry to date.
