Enhanced Tag-Team Matches and Other New Match Types
Tag Team matches are emphasized in Smackdown vs. Raw 2009, and there are many new additions to make the game more realistic and fun. Players can now perform double teams on opponents, such as having one player hold an opponent against the ropes while on the apron, or pulling down on ropes while an opponent is running to send them out of the ring. And there are now different ways of tagging in, such as the forced blind tag and reversible hot tag. Teams also get team-specific finishing moves that are incredibly satisfying to perform.

In addition to tag matches, there are 14 one-on-one match types including the Inferno, Gauntlet, Falls Count Anywhere, Steel Cage and Ladder matches, and even a Backstage Brawl.

Road to Wrestlemania Mode
The single player Road to Wrestlemania mode offers a deep and diverse story line that is filled with brand defections, team building, and strategic alliances. You can choose from Triple H, CM Punk, The Undertaker, John Cena, and Chris Jericho to play in this single-player mode. There is also a story line for co-operative play, in which players control Batista and Rey Mysterio. The story lines are so custom tailored and well done that you might find them more compelling than what you see on television.

Play Online and Download New Content
You can play against friends online in different matches, and this time, voice support has been added so you can trash talk to your heart's content. Additionally, you can also download new content to keep the game fresh.

WWE fans and fighting game fans alike will both love this latest game, giving them a chance to grapple as their favorite superstars.

The Smackdown game series since about Here Comes the Pain has been on a downward spiral. Many loyal fans of the series abandoning it because they felt like THQ were putting the minimal effort into the game, simply because they knew it would sell. In many ways they were justified for turning their back on the series as it gave THQ the wake up call they needed. This game seems like one of the very first games in the series that a hell of a lot of effort was put into it. With a massive roster, an easy to use yet detailed controlling system and a beefed up tag system this game was bound to be a success. First off THQ needs to reassure the abandoning fans that this is a very different game from the originals. One way in doing that is giving them one thing the fans have always wanted, a "create a finisher" mode. The very notion that you can now create your own finisher is something that the fans think will make a massive difference to such a game. Anyway, the modes are going to be discussed in a minute but in a nutshell this game is really good.

The Roster: This contains over 60 wrestlers, none of them legends but the sheer size of the roster itself is enough to allow you to effectively use the newly updated tag team system. The real gem for this particular installment is the announcement that in order to keep the rosters from becoming out dated, THQ are going to finally utilise the Playstation Network by allowing downloadable content. This will not only feature wrestlers but will allow other additions such as possible new storylines or looks for current superstars to match what is going on in TV land. The first announcement of the DLC is although there is not yet a date, superstars Evan Bourne and Ted DiBiase Jr. are confirmed to be a part of it along with a few other little things.

The main thing about this game that is better are the controls. Anybody can grab the controller and perform suplexes or superstar finishers. WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 is around the corner so I expect that game to be awesome as well. If you want to get this game for the lower price at this time I highly recommend. You will be amazed by the various match types, numerous superstar selection to choose from, the realistic graphics and great overall gameplay.

This is an entertaining and fairly easy to learn game on the PS3. The graphics are pretty good although some of the characters (especially the Divas) still could appear a little closer to their real life counter parts. I enjoy the fact that there are several sub games (Roads to Wrestlemania) and many different superstars you can play as, as well as a plethora of types of matches you can have in "exhibition mode". I am most familiar with 1st person shooters, but this is a fun fighting game that I will be playing for quite some time.

There hasn't truly been a great Smackdown game since HCTP, a great story, great superstar selection, etc. But since we have been plagued with mediocre games. SVR 2007 was a disaster and 08 wasn't much better, but 09 gives you a huge cut down on load times which should be a fresh breath to any SVR follower, because god have there been some LOAD TIMES. 09's best feature besides the reduced load times has to be create a finisher, which is a bit rough on the edges but still good. Career mode which is practically WWE 24/7, but with no story, just strict fighting and going for titles, with no logic to it. Road to wrestlemania is the story mode, while still great fun, is a HUGE dissapointment, only 6 superstars to choose from? thats just plain limiting this games potential. Especially If you like doing the story driven, RPG career that many of us used to with your own superstar in the drivers seat. Not that I Really care, but SVR also still hasn't given girls their own unique paths to championships either, you can make a diva, like usual, but with no Diva-Friendly story mode, that's gotta be a sales killer towards the female crowd. If your one of those Story Driven SVR players, this game dissapoints. If your just a strict game play person, it succeeds and is better than the garbage we've seen in the past. Also, they say there are roster updates, you can call them that, but I call them an add-on, updates are usually free. You have to pay 5 bucks to update rosters and get Evan Bourne, Ted Dibiase Jr. and a bunch of alternate costumes. Also the online isn't much better still a bit laggy. I'd say this game is much more for the younger audiences more than ever.

I was a bit disappointed with Smackdown vs Raw 2008, but THQ out did themselves with Smackdown vs Raw 2009! I love this game!!! I prefer my own CAWS and they delivered big time!! Create your own finishers, highlight reel, and the AI has really improved! If you can only buy one game this is the one!

After playing for a few hours, you may realize that this game is just more of the same. The game just doesn't feel new.

Good points: Really interesting story mode. This time, it's wrestler specific, so the story mode is much more fleshed out. You will probably get most enjoyment out of this mode.

But that is about it in terms of good points.

There is create a finisher mode, which I previously thought had a lot of potential. But after playing with it for a few hours, I realized that the mode is really limited. Based upon what moves you pick in the first few steps, the rest of the steps become more and more limited in terms of what moves you can add. So you can't really create that many amazing looking finishers. If this mode had received more attention, I definitely would have given one more star to the game.

Then there is a new match type, inferno. Yup.

Everything else about the game just feels stale. The game looks same, feels same, and moves the same way. This is my biggest disappointment about the game. The game suffers from this yearly development cycle. How much new stuff can the developers add in about 9 - 10 months before they release next game. Not much. And it shows. But the problem is that every year, people keep buying it, and they keep making money off these games.

Go and download the demo on psn. If you like it, then you will probably enjoy the rest of the game as well. But if you didn't get any enjoyment out of the demo, then skip over this iteration. There is always going to be another one next year.
