The 2009 edition of World Wrestling Entertainment's reigning interactive entertainment title has players entering the sold-out arenas with a partner. More than before, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 is about teamwork -- tag-teamwork, to be precise. Two players can work together toward a Wrestlemania victory in an expanded co-op campaign. Working together, a good team can build momentum and become stronger as it progresses, gaining powerful moves. The game allows for team tactics, such as matching strengths and weaknesses and budgeting stamina, and players can perform the classic babyface beat-down turnaround: a hot tag to a raw and rested teammate who ready to smack both unready opponents down to the canvas. The 2009 edition's "Create-a-Finisher" feature allows players to create not only the look and attributes of their custom WWE superstars, but their finishing moves as well.
