Rated 0 out of 10 by WWE4LIFE! BACKSTAGE WANTER!
Hey there anxious WWE FANATICS like myself! Once again another WWE Smackdown game is announced for release in Nov. I hope to god there is at least 10 backstage arenas where you can just kick the HELL out of each other with all sorts off weapons ane environmental grapples! Once again, take that stupid KO move out of backstage fighting! once again, when the series: Smackdown vs. Raw debuted back in 2004, it had only one backstage and over the years of purchasing WWE Smackdown vs raw games throughout the last 5 years, backstage just got suckier and suckier! but anyway, if you own a Playstation 3 like myself, you're in luck this year, you will have outstandingly real and super awesome skin-textured graphics, and they said that you will be able to have a custom soundtrack on the Playstation 3(the whole reason I bought the Playstation 3) and basically just enjoy the year and make your countdown to November 12th, 2008 and reserve that special edition ASAP like I’m, going to! HAVE A NICE DAY!
Rated 0 out of 10 by KC Uchiha I love smakcdown vs raw (tna sucks)
The tna video games sucks, not only does it sucks but its hard to defend yourself against grapple and strikes. Not to mention that it can be frustrating to see the same moves over and over again, plus they got no style when it comes to music and they performance on drama sucks. Fighting over stupid things that doesn't even makes sense. However one game such as smackdown vs raw 2009 is very exciting even though it the same people passing to the next generation of gaming for me smackdown has always been exciting. But what i would love most is that they make all the matches in one game. Like the punjabi prison match, the ambulance match, barbed wire match, along with many mores in one game. There hasn't been a single smackdown game with a complete roster with a complete game. But still i like how things are going to be in 2009. I didn't quite like much smackdown 2008 cause the story sucks and the power ups were fake. And i see they improved the story mode which is great.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Tiger06 Top Wrestling game EVER!
I believe SVR 2009 will be the best wrestling game ever. SVR 2008 was just a stepping stone for this year's game. This game will be up for game of the year as long as they get rid of the repetitive storylines in my opinion. SVR 2008's problem was storylines and the absence of superstars in the game. It has been said it will have the biggest roster ever in the SVR or WWF Smackdown Series. The thing that I and a lot of other people are looking forward to is the Create-A-Finisher and New Tag Team setups. Over the past 5-6 years, everyone was asking for create-a-move and now they are going to have create-a-finisher. I heard a while back that maybe in SVR 2010 they will add create-a-move, which then you will be able to create a custom moveset. Think about it, creating moves for your basic grapples. Backbreakers, arm flips, sideslams, etc. If they do add that in 2010, I would say that would be the best game ever, period! I hope 2009 will turn out the way everyone is anticipating. I hope it is not as bad as TNA.
Rated 0 out of 10 by TRiPLE EM suggestions for svr2009...
I hope that they can re-add the hardcore venture mode where you walk around the arena, the best one in my opinion is the one in smackdown! here comes the pain. Many matches should be added like a scaffold match, a decent buried alive match, and maybe even the infamous inferno match. The different styles moves like power house, high flyer, and etc. should not be in 2009 because although it was a very creative way of fighting it seems more like one time thing and should not be re-added. They should maybe focus more on a CAW and make him one with the roster and they should have more names for your CAW. It would be cool if they can get injured during match for example if Triple H keeps getting hurt on a body part that is red then the player can get a sprained muscle or even a broken bone! Lastly i would like to say that the more a cut gets aggravated they should bleed more and you should be able to bleed all over the body that gets cut open. thank you, -Mauricio Medina
Rated 7 out of 10 by cmiller33 alright game
I was disappointed in some aspects of the game and was very pleased in others. I liked the create a finisher nothing like creating your own move. I also liked that you could add your own music to your entrance, to give your wrestler that personal touch. I also enjoyed the tag team option too. The online option is very cool too. The character animation was solid as where the entrance's. I was disappointed with the lack of a story for created wrestler's it made it boring and dull. It lacked that personal touch getting you involved, in the career mode you just went from wining belt to belt and not really getting you involved. I also didn’t like the fact you could get an opponent in the red and they get up like nothing is wrong, it can be very frustrating when you are in a ladder match and your opponent keeps getting up. I didn’t like the fact you couldn’t create 2 superstars and go for title in career mode. In some aspects game they did really good but others they left out a few details that could have made this a great game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by IN-Vasion23 THANK YOU!!
Ok so honestly I HATED SVR 2008! The storyline was terrible and gm mode was way to hard with 3 brands. This game is by far way better than 08. This game the player stats are actually accurate. Unlike that crap cena 97 overall, now he's a 93 and the highest overall superstars are accurate, undertaker and orton! I dont own the game at this moment but I've played it for a good 2 hours at my friends house so I've got the idea. I love how you can use signature moves, it sorta builds up momentum for a finisher. And hot tags are really cool too. They finally gave HBK a good overall. Legend is not as hard as 2008 but the reversals are ridiculous! I've noticed the rig in the 360 version elimination chambers but I dont know about the PS3 version. For some reason you cant use the turnbuckle unless u climb the cage and go down onto the turnbuckle. I just find it odd. Overall this game is very good and extremely better than 2008. Thanks WWE.

I was really looking forward to this game but, I recently found something on gamespot and on wikipedia that I think everybody should see before buying or pre-ordering. Take a look: There are six stories to choose from: five single-player stories and, in keeping with 2009s focus on tag-team wrestling, a cooperative story mode. The wrestlers featured in the mode are Chris Jericho, John Cena, Undertaker, CM Punk, Triple H, and for the co-op story, Batista and Rey Mysterio, Jr. Each of the stories features a unique plot and is told through a mixture of cinematics and gameplay. I can't believe this there are only 5 people to choose from and only HHH and Undertaker will have good story lines. Also, I can't believe they put Batista and Rey Mysterio as the only co-op story characters. I don't know how every body else feels but this might be the worst of the SDVR series. At least they had enough sense to put in The Inferno Match.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Kane fan 101 Fantastic, fantastic and more fantastic
THQ has finally hit the gold. They have every thing they need to make this game great. But every year it lets me down with the roster. It never has the complete roster. Like Hornswoggle, all they had to do is make a shorter version of Finlay. And the weapons let me down, too. What about the shillelagh? One more thing that let me down is the 24/7 mode which will now be Road to Wrestlemania mode. I hope you can use ECW superstars in it. But the two things that THQ hit right on the dot are the tag team finishers and the “create a finishing move. I have been waiting two years for them to add “create a finisher”. I think they should not bring back the superstar fighting type. Also, they should make it so you and your tag partner in 24/7 mode (Road to Wrestlemania mode) can walk around the locker room. All locker rooms. Also, you should make it so that you can request title shots on both co-op and single player mode. And make it so if you are not scheduled in a match, you have a chance to qualify for a match. But all together I think this game will be fantastic.
Rated 0 out of 10 Excited!
I have been playing these games since they first came out and i really look forward to the new features in this game. Especially the major cut downs on the loading screens. I was watching a video of the end of a match and there was no loading screen. It just went right to the after match with the character's music and what they do when they win. I also look forward to the new Road to Wrestlemania game mode. It seems interesting. I think that the new RTW mode will be expanded over the years and will be one of the best modes in the game. I hope that there will be a lot of options in Create A Wrestler mode. The 08 version could have had more, but it's all good. As for the characters moving like robots, I personally don't pay too much attention to it, but I hope they improve on that too in the future. I look forward to this game big time and i'm gonna pre-order this pronto. I can't believe i haven't yet.
Rated 0 out of 10 by gameinformer345 The game is gonna be fine.
The game has some new features. The gameplay is gonna be the same but they got some great new match types like the inferno match which is probably gonna be really fun to play. I've had every wrestling game ever made. Smackdown Vs Raw can get pretty old after overdoing it, but that goes for every game. The TNA video game REALLY SUCKS. I'm telling you guys this game is horrible. They have absolutely no match variety at all. There's about 110 moves in the whole game and that includes all finishers and reversals. Be thankful at least SvR has given us a huge variety of match types and move sets. They offer over 1,500 moves and in SvR 2009 you can actually CREATE YOUR OWN FINISHER. Guys, if you've had all the other WWE games, just get it because you're going to buy it anyway. Anyone who's never had a WWE game before should buy this one because it'd be new for you so you'll have fun.
