Smackdown Vs. Raw 2009 is a lightweight in the field of Wrestling games, but it can stand toe to toe with the heavyweights if you can overlook some flaws. THQ took a few high-risk maneuvers, but most of them pay off. Just be ready to ice down your arm muscles after swinging the Wiimote through some Iron Man matches. Some of the design choices really put the game in a chokehold, but the fun factor lets it kick free. The character creation options will stun you, and the amount of detail in the existing WWE Superstars shows that this game has a fine pedigree. Just don't get too wrapped up if you lose a few rounds-some of the fights can be real backbreakers.
