As the title implies, 09 was way better than this installment IMO. The only reason I play SvR is for Road to Wrestlemania mode. And, in this installment, it was utterly DESTROYED.
I sat a day prior going into career mode and building my CAW from the ground up, getting his overall rating to 93 before deciding "Ok it's time to hit Road to Wrestlemania". I switch over, and the first couple of matches were pretty cool, until suddenly the 2hrs of thought I put into my CAW's attire was shot and thrown out the window.
I wrestled through the first match thinking "Ok, this is just temporary I'll get to switch back soon..." Then the next match, same thing....Next match...nope...STILL look like a Macho Man Randy Savage reject...Finally, due to both this and this years installment of SEVERELY over using the Handi-cap match feature I said F this and put the game back in it's envelope and sent it on it's way back to the GF facility where if they have any sense, will burn every copy of SvR 2010 they have and only stock 09.
It may seem petty to some folks but to me, If I am going to put the 2-3 hours into a wrestling attire (which I do and usually another 2-3 on the moveset as well which the story ALSO screws with btw.) I expect to be IN...THAT...ATTIRE...Unless I MYSELF actively change it. It was like I was being punished for using my CAW in RTWM mode instead of the already existing superstars.
As a whole, I wont say DONT play this game because it has some great features and the CAWs actually look decent this time around that are worth looking into. I AM saying dont play it though if you are like me and play it solely for RTWM because in that regard you will be extremely disappointed and find yourself longing for 09 as I have.

wwe games used to be fun when the svr series came out but this new addition is quiet frankly sad. the road to wrestlemainia is nothing but a disappointment. during them all i found was frustration. and the new create your own season mode is a disgrace compared to the old general manager mode. that used to be fun i used to be abale to play that allday but this new mode makes me want to throw the controller threw the tv. by far the worst wwe game yet to come. anyone who is reading this dont bother renting the game.your better off renting one of the previous smackdown vs raw games.
