Worthplaying has posted their preview of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009.

"The controls are simple and fairly elegant. For the most part, they've changed little from the controls available in previous games. Left analog moves, right analog grapples, and then your face buttons control strikes and the moves you can perform, contextually depending on the location of your opponent. The shoulder buttons appear to control finishers, while the triggers allow for defensive options. There are a lot of nice little graphical and other touches that make matches feel very authentic. Entrances are more detailed than they've ever been before, with long TV-style walks down to the ring, authentic entrance music, and little moments where wrestlers try to interact with the "crowd." The crowd puts up the correct types of signs to encourage the wrestlers in the ring, and the announcing voice clips say very specific things about the wrestlers. The character models look better than ever, authentic down to the last tattoo, and the props and various locals are also recreated meticulously."

Yeah unfortunately the guy playing the preview build looks like he hasn't played Smackdown since it was good.

The preview and the videos ive seen overall sounds disappointing

I'm still giving it a chance though because I really just want to hope for a good wrestling game

Im just hoping this years version will finally feature a roster of 60+ playable superstars not including legends. The past few games that were released featured a watered down roster and its getting ridiculous that they can't incorporate more than 40-50 active wrestlers for the 360 and PS3 versions.
