Rated 6 out of 10 by BoricuaBoi Nothin Special
I was excited when I first got it, but then after you beat all of that stuff like Road to Wrestle Mania it really starts to get boring. Sure there is Wi-Fi after you get good and play with people online but eventually that starts getting old then you don't feel like playin it no more. The Road to Wrestle Mania is okay but then you have to play as all of those people and then that soon goes from fun to a pain in the ass. Even though it's only for the Wii, the graphics could atleast be a little bit better. The graphics kinda sucks it's like PS2 graphics there not that great. Another thing that I don't get at all is that there is no Manager Mode. That used to be so fun until I got it all you can do is Career Mode that's it. Smackdown vs Raw 2009 is one of the biggest let downs ever. If you're reading this right now I'm just going to warn you DON'T BUY THIS!!!! this will be a huge waste of money

I purchased this game in November 2008 when this game came out, Not much had changed because of the fact that most of the wrestlers were the same, but The game is SICK! Mostly I like the part that you can actually do the entrances, the con of that is that it looks to fake when your not doing it(like when the opponent comes out, which is the computer) The graphics are also good, and the variety of wrestlers is huge, but the camera angle is bad. when I try to pick up the steel steps from the side (bottom right of the ring) you can barely see your wrestler. The online matches are also sick, but it takes to long to find someone. I also like the fact that there are funny glitches when you try to powerbomb etc. but there is another con, the game can be more challenging. From my perspective, expert mode is kind of easy once you get used to it, But yea, I recommend this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Vegito Best out of all!!!
I love Smackdown and Raw. last year i was disapointed of the wii version of SvR because of the lack of matches.But this game makes up for it. I love that you can create an entrance for created wrestlers. and also make a finisher. the entrances are amazing. And FINALLY the a Svr game for Wii has the option to pick what match you want. The controls work great nothing wrong with them.This will not disapoint SvR fans at all. The only priblems found were that Road to Wrestlemania only has a few superstars. I would hav liked to be Jeff Hardy but he didnt make it to Wrestlmania 24 and Career mode makes up for that and the second problem is that why is this game 2009 if it has the wrestlemania for 2008? But still i am actully glad of that because 2008 was my favorite year in WWE/WWF/WCW history. So that makes up for it so this game is PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by rcgocubs This Game Rocks!!!
SvR 2009 is a great game, especially for the Wii. THQ left out the inferno match, elimination chamber match, create a finisher mode, and highlight reel in the game, which are available in ps3 and 360. The sound in the game is decent, but the interactive entrances make up for it. Road to Wrestle Mania 24 is really fun, but they should have made more Superstars available to use. The Co-Op storyline for mysterio and Batista is cool, but triple h has the best RtW of all. I did the DX path and it rocked. Undertaker's was pretty easy. The all new tag team improvements are pretty good. Create a Superstar is better than 08. Career Mode is fun but easy. The controls are the best part. You feel like you are actually wrestling while playing. There are no real "legends" except Ric Flair and maybe Tazz. But overall this is the best SvR for wii ever. GET IT!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Pickles21 This is the best version of SvR on any system so far!!!
Of all the Smackdown Vs Raw games, I have to say that this is the best version of any Smackdown vs. Raw Games, or wrestling games, period! I love the interactive and victory scenes. I also love the tag team moves and finishers. You can make just about as many created superstars as you want. The Create-A-Superstar is also very detailed. I still play Smackdown vs. Raw 2006 now, so when I get 2009 again, I imagine I will be playing it for even longer. I had Smackdown Vs. Raw for Playstation 2 and I have to say that I wasn;t as enjoyable experience for me. I didn't feel as into it as I do when I play the Wii Version. I rented this game befote and I loved it. I will buy probably tommorrow or the next day. One last thing I loved on the Wii Version is the Online Capabilities. I will try it out when I buy it. I love this game!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by ZE CRITIC it was better than last time
it was a great contrast to 08' as it had much better controls but it lacked a long story mode and there were NO legends at all which is really disappointing rest was great the superstar entrance is my favorite its great the way u have 2 shake the remote i own the game on my ps2 as well and i like this one better but instead of wasting your money on this i would prefer smack down shut Ur mouth whose story line was LONG. this not too bad nor too good. there is no create a finisher like on other consoles and inferno match which would have been cooler there are not many moves and you cant store a signature move though the controls are a lot easier but i haven't yet figured out how to sprint. the graphics are kind of better than 08 or maybe the same and the commentators say the same stuff all the time. i would give it an eight.
Rated 9 out of 10 by WiiFan PRETTY GOOD GAME!!!
This is a very good game. The graphics are better than i thought it would be.It has more match types but its missing alot of the good ones that the other systems have for example inferno match and elimination chamber. The control was pretty hard to get used to but after a day i pretty much had it down. The gameplay is very fun and online mode makes this game great. I would reccomend this game to everyone.Road To Wrestlemania is great even though i havent finish it yet, you get to unlock many characters and a arena. It has backstage brawl!!!!!! probably the best match for the wii you also get to unlock the Gauntlet Match. The game has a few minor problems haven't seen anything bad about the game so far, all i gotta say is it is way much better than 08 from what i hear. Rent it first if your not so sure about it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by The Viper incredible game
This is a great game but it is missing things like the create a finisher and they are missing a lot of matches including the brand new inferno match which I am dieing to play but they still have great matches to play and the tag team moves are out of this house and they include the road to wrestlemania which has a great story line which includes 6 of the best superstars in the wwe. And each superstar has its own storyline which is great.They made a great roster of wwe superstars with more then 60 wwe superstars.They made the game so cool to swig the wii remote to punch someone and I love the new double team moves like when Matt hardy does the TWIST OF fate then Jeff hardy does the swanton bomb. I say that you should buy this game because it is a very fun game with cool things in it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Action teacher This game is awessome!
I don't even like Smackdown, Raw, or ECW. But this game is sweet and addicting. The graphics are pretty good for the fighters but they spent absolutely no time on the audience. There are so many fighters to choose from and you can made basicaly as many fighters as u want. The camera angles are really good there is just one place that you can't see your character. Love the entrances. You can even make entrances for your created characters. The controls for the moves are pretty straightforward but sometimes you need to work to get them to respond. The interaction between characters backstage is pretty good. It follows a good storyline and it's long 2. The storyline like never ends. There are three story's you can play there's tournament, career, and road to wrestlemania.
Rated 3 out of 10 by hennessyhypnotic Stay away from wii version
Smackdown vs raw 09 on wii is barely playable. It gets tiring having to constantly shake the wii-mote to punch and kick. You also have to run and move by using the analog stick on the nunchuck, which makes a simple thing very tedious and makes you wish you were playing this game on ps3 or xbox. The interactive entrances are not fun and end up being pointless.They also left out a few match types (inferno matches come to mind). The load times are very long for some odd reason. Wrestling games were meant to be played on a normal controller (for now that is). Stick with the ps3,ps2 or xbox 360 version!
