SDvR09 is better than last year's effort, no question, and it's a better game than TNA Impact! on account of it being yet another iteration of a tried and trusted game engine and packed full to bursting with features old and new. So yes, on the whole it has met the challenge. In a way, however, the true test is yet to come. Next year Midway's TNA Impact! follow-up will have had a solid debut under its belt, and, hopefully, will pile even more pressure onto THQ. Fingers crossed Yuke's not only copes with it, but revels in it.
