Crispy Gamer Preview: WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009

Crispy Gamer writes: "I grew up in the old-school wrestling era. Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Macho Man, Jesse the Body -- when I think wrestling, those are the grapplers that come to mind. In videogames, THQ and Yuke's have been at the helm of the WWE franchise for years, so when a build of their latest effort -- SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 -- came across my desk, I invited a friend over, grabbed a six-pack, and fired up the game to see if the current wrestling stable would pique my interest. Saving the classic wrestlers for next year's Legends of WrestleMania, it was time to take to the ring with The Undertaker, Triple H, John Cena and more. Although we had a good time, there are still a lot of things about the game that need serious cleaning up."
