THQ steps into the wrestling arena once again, showing off a few new gimmicks in Smackdown vs. Raw 2009. While many sore spots from the previous installments have been fixed or reworked, SvR 2009 feels more like an "it's about time" update than a fresh experience. Still, wrestling fans should definitely get this game -- especially if they've been out of the ring for a while.
The Bottom Line: Although it still has some flaws, Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 is a solid helping of great wrestling action.
