FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

As an expert WWE Smackdown! to WWE Smackdown! v.s. RAW Series player, I am very disappointed with this year's title. While I admire the very intense co-op features added to the game, and the uniquely in-depth Road to WrestleMania storylines, it's just missing that X-Factor. Smackdown!, Smackdown! Know your Role, Smackdown! Just Bring It, Smackdown! ,Here Comes the Pain, Smackdown vs RAW, SVR 06, SVR 07, SVR 08 all had some type of career mode. SVR 2009 has NO Career Mode. It is simply a series of randomly placed exhibition matches will absolutely no story line; leaving the Create-A-Wreslter, or playing with a character that's not available in the Road to WrestleMania feature virtually pointless. Point being this, if you don't only want to play this game as either the Undertaker, Triple H, CM Punk, John Cena or Batista & Rey(Co-Op originally) over and over again, than this game is not worth your money at all. Even I liked the Road to WrestleMania feature, but it is short and the storylines have EXTREMELY few changes; leaving absolutely NO replay-ability to the game. Next year, this franchise better step-up to the plate for those of us players that thrive on an interesting single-player mode.
