There is no Create-a-finisher mode on this. And while it might take some time to get used to the controls for every match, this isn't a bad game. A step up from last year but they've still got a long way to go until the Wii version can battle it out against the other Next Gen consoles. If you have a choice between this system and a different system go for the other one, but if you want a fun time with friends and maybe 20 hours of fun for yourself then get this game.
Smackdown Vs. Raw 2009 is the best wwe game ever!!

Deeper than 08, but way to much waggle

I will say this. It is a big improvement over the 2008 model. You have more match types, good graphics, more superstars, a great create a superstar mode, and more options in general. The controls for the most part are easy to pick up, but sometimes it just feels tacked on. This is definitely a game that could have benefited from the motion controls. When you get on screen prompts that tell you to move one way or another, you can really just shake the remote and that will be it. Or you are trying to match the on screen prompts and it doesn't read what you are doing, which is just really frustrating.
Overall this is a definite improvement over last years model but I think it will take one more year to really nail it down. To me, it is just too much waggling for my liking. I do like the fact that they worked it in there, but just not as much of it. Use it selectively and make sure when you use it that it works. If they just came up with an alternate control scheme then this game would be much, much better.

If they had a training mode, I could not find it. It would have been nice to get to practice moves, like one can in Star Wars The Force Unleashed.
