All in all, despite all of this games quirks and faults, you won't find a better WWE wrestling game. What puts this title ahead is the attention to details and the sheer amount of replay value with the absolutely huge roster, the outstanding Road to WrestleMania mode and the possibility of expanding your game play experience with future DLC. THQ and Yukes should be commended for not only stepping up their game but exceeding expectations and finally making a wrestling game that overshadows every other wrestling game in the past. SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 has set the bar and raised the standard when it comes to Wrestling games and fighting games. As a long time fan of Wrestling and Wrestling games I look forward to what is in store for the future. For years, gamers have wanted a true WWF No Mercy Killer, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 is that game. For $60 you wont find a better value for your dollar when it comes down to it.
