Smackdown Vs. Raw 09 wouldn't be a hard game to praise...if the 08, 07 and 06 editions had never existed. It's really hard to look at this game, which is almost entirely a rehash, and tell wrestling fans to buy it. The diehard crowd will anyway. But if you're not obsessed with the series, wait for the next true evolution (which will likely occur on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3).
