WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2009

Game Focus writes: "There is no doubt that professional wrestling reached it's heyday in the late 90's/early 2000s. You couldn't swing a steel folding chair without hitting someone wearing an Austin 3:16 t-shirt. You could also argue (and I would be one of them) that wrestling games peaked in 2000 with WWF No Mercy for the Nintendo 64. THQ seemed hit their stride with their Smackdown series, especially around Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain for the Playstation 2. However, the last few incarnations have been treading water by not offering any revolutionary. Does Smackdown vs Raw 2009 (SVR09) reinvigorate the series? Put your tights on and let's find out."

Pros

+ Great graphics
+ Road to Wrestlemania mode has good storylines
+ TV style presentation
+ Deep Create A Superstar Mode
+ Highlight Reel is a nice new addition

Cons

- Poor targeting system
- New matches aren't that interesting
- Create a finisher mode is limited
- Commentary robotic and stilted
- Game offers nothing substantially new
