"THQ has changed my mind after making this game."
WWF SMACKDOWN is a great game. When I first heard that THQ were making this game I was mad because I did not like Thunder or Nitro. Now I have changed my mind completely about them.
The gameplay too this game is excellent. Exhibition mode, is where you can choose different matches like one on one, handy cap matches, battel roils, roil rumbles, king of the ring, any where false count, hardcore, cage, surviver series, special referee mode, and finally I quit matches. Out of all of them I like the most it is special referee because you can be a referee and choose who you want to help and beat up. There also is create your own paper view that is cool but I don't do it much. Then comes the best of all season where you have story lines and everything. The only thing about the season is it never ends I wished after a while your guy would come out and retire or something like that. The season is still fun even though of that feature.
The graphics for this game are great. The wrestlers look detailed and realistic. The crowd looks better in this game because they actually look like people instead of flat people. You can read the words on the signs. The back stage areas look excellent and better than MAYHEM'S. The music intrance videos is a great feature because it makes the game more realistic to real life.
sound effects 10
The sound is the best thing on this game. The ring sounds perfect. The wrestlers music sounds exactly like it should. There is only one thing that bothers me about this game and that is it needs talking. You might like this but you never turn on Smackdown on Upn and here just the wrestlers hitting the ring you here the announcers as well. It just makes it more like life.
replay value 9
The game like I said offers a lot of things you can do so that makes the replay better. The season is fun to do because there is story lines that the game makes for you. There also is special guest referee which is fun to play because you can take sides and help who ever you want. There is just so much you can do on this game so it is fun to play over and over again.
Do you buy this game please it is the best wrestling game so far. Personally my thoughts on this game is to buy it and I hope the next game is even better.
final score 9.6 round to gamefaqs score 10
