The bottom line is that there is a ton of content in Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 when compared with other sports titles and fighter games. Casual players will only skim the surface of what the game has to offer, while enthusiasts will spend hour up on hour making new characters, creating their own custom finishers and move sets, and playing against their friends both offline and over Xbox Live.
Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 may not be perfect, but in terms of the fighting genre it's about as good as it gets in terms of fun, value, longevity and content.
