Summary: After Smackdown vs Raw 2008 turned out to be a travesty of video game, I was expecting better results from SVR 2009. Unfortunately, a lot of 2008 followed over into 2009. The gameplay is still the same and there really was no difference in the smoothness/movement of how the gameplay was in SVR 2008.
Summary: The game is a good value at under $20, but with SvR 11 coming out soon, I would honestly save the money. This game is pretty outdated and is just another average entry into the SvR series. I actually think it's a step back from SvR 08. I'd recommend buying 08 before buying 09.
Summary: I liked the old WWE raw 2 format where you could keep going and going on career mode. this game here is the regular storyline where when its done its done period and you have to start the game over and the cut scenes are very basic.
Summary: Still THQ hasn't fixed the major glitches(made a patch)for online like the "Freeze Glitch" and the "Crowd Glitch".The freeze glitch will have a player stuck to the mat for the whole match unless the player quits(which the cheater would win regardless).You would see this happening in ladder,steel...
Summary: It's ashame they took alot of things from 2008, like GM mode so there is no story mode for your CAW, Road to WrestleMania is good but thats the only bright spot to the game. Even the side area where you go into the crowd was removed. All in all great sound a graphics though.
Summary: We used to compare games based on four factors. These factors being graphics, sound, game play, and story. Now, unless the graphics and sound suck, we rarely get excited about them. Since the Nineties, THQ has dominated the wrestling franchise market when it comes to the four factors.
