Impulse Gamer writes: "WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw returns to the console world with this review focusing on both the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 versions. THQ once again allow gamers across the world to enjoy one of the most entertaining "sports" as they wrestle their way to victory with new maneuvers, gameplay modes and the biggest change to the franchise, in-depth story modes.
With mixed reviews of the previous incarnation of WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw, THQ have addressed some of the inconsistencies of the gameplay and load times, making the tenth game of the franchise, a truly entertaining experience. Without dwelling on past errors, it's time to focus on WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2009, the latest and perhaps greatest wrestling game!"
