GamingTrend: "One of the best video gaming memories I have is of staying up late with my brother and playing Nintendo's Pro Wrestling on the NES. Even though the graphics were crude by today's standards, the thrill of pulling off a special move against your opponent or smacking them to the mat with a perfectly-timed clothesline was still a rush. Technology has come a long way since those days, so I was eager to jump into the modern world of wrestling with WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 2009. The game promises several improvements over last year's version, so is it worth the upgrade? Fight your way through the crowds to a ringside seat for this review. The match is about to begin.
