SVR06's core gameplay is much like you have come to expect from the series.  It 
is for the most part pretty solid.  Only slight selling issues from the enemy 
AI really detract from the fun.  In layman's terms, your adversaries don't stay 
down long enough.  This is particularly noticeable when using a character with 
a top rope finisher like Rob Van Dam or the late Eddie Guerrero.  You have to 
beat your foe to a pulp to even have a shot at nailing a Frog Splash, but 
luckily there are some in-game sliders to counter this.

Now that I've gotten that minor gripe out of the way, we can begin.

                           O================O

HUD stands for Heads Up Display.  The HUD is located in the corners of the 
screens, there is one for each superstar competing in the match.


      0      John Cena
     /|\  
     / \  [\\\\\(W)/////]
     1P

     STAMINA
   (---------)

That is generally what the in-game HUD looks like.

BREAKING DOWN THE HUD

 			0  <-------- This horrible excuse for ASCII is the
                       /|\           limb damage meter.  This meter keeps 
                       / \           track of damage sustained in four 
                                     sections of the superstars body: 
                                     Head, Body, Arms, and Legs.

         As the match goes on and you recieve more and more damage,
         each of the four sections will change colors depending on 
         how much damage you have recieved.  To break it down, the 
         colors and their respective amounts of damage are:

         Blue - No Damage
         Yellow - Minimal Damage
         Orange - Moderate Damage
         Red - Heavy Damage

                 [\\\\\(W)/////] <----- This is the Momentum Meter (it is,
                                        trust me :)).  This is the amount 
                                        of momentum your superstar currently
                                        holds.  When it is full, you can tap 
                                        L1 to unleash your finisher or L1 + L2 
                                        to store it for later.  There are many 
                                        different ways to build up your 
                                        momentum, depending on whether you are
                                        fighting clean or dirty.

         If you are fighting clean:
 
                  To build momentum
                  -----------------
                     - Perform signature moves
                     - Perform moves from the top turnbuckle (most effective)
                     - Perform a taunt
                     - Perform a move through the announcer's table
                     - Refuse to tap out with red limb damage
                     - Kick out after a 2 count

                  To lose momentum
                  -----------------
                     - Perform a dirty move
                     - Use a weapon 
                     - Attack your teammate
                     - Attack/argue with the ref
                     - Remove turnbuckle pad

          If you are fighting dirty:
 
                   To build momentum
                   -----------------
                     - Perform a dirty move
                     - Use a weapon 
                     - Attack your teammate
                     - Attack/argue with the ref
                     - Remove turnbuckle pad
                     - Break up your own pin after two count

                    To lose momentum
                    ----------------
                     - Perform a diving attack
                      
                      
                       STAMINA  <---------- This part of the HUD only appears
                     (---------)            when you press and hold the select
                                            button.  Doing so will refill your 
                                            stamina meter, which you need to 
                                            do to continue wrestling.

                           O================O

                           O================O

Here are a few more gameplay topics in SVR06.

/PLAYING POSSUM\

Playing possum is a new addition to the Smackdown! franchise.  Basically, 
playing possum is pretending to be injured to gain the upper hand on your 
opponent and lure him into a small package.  You may see Kurt Angle do it a bit 
to apply his Angle Lock. 

TO PERFORM A POSSUM PIN hold the Circle button while down on the mat with a 
stored finisher.  Then, when the opponent approaches, tap L2 to counter a 
strike or R2 to counter a grapple.  If you guess correctly, you will perform 
the possum pin.  If you guess wrong, you will lose your stored finisher.


/PRE MATCH MINI GAMES\

In one-on-one matches you will get the option to have a pre-match mini game. 
If it is your choice, use the analog stick to select a game.

Stare Down - Be the first to hit X when it appears on the screen.  If you hit 
             it too early, the opponent will deflect your blow and knock you 
             down.

Test of Strength - Be the first to hit the button that appears on screen in a 
                   2 out of 3 format.

Lock Up - Stop the meter at a higher point than your opponent.

None - No mini game.  Duh.

/WEIGHT CLASSES\

Weight classes are an important part of SVR06.  Here's a list of the different 
weight classes:

Ultra Heavyweight (Andre the Giant)
Super Heavyweight (Big Show, The Undertaker)
Heavyweight (Triple H, Kurt Angle)
Light Heavyweight (Chris Jericho, Booker T)
Cruiserweight (Rey Mysterio, Rob Van Dam)
Diva (Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson)

These weight classes are important because they effect in game grapples.  
While Andre, as the the games only Ultra Heavyweight, and the other Super 
Heavyweights can lift anyone, the other weight classes recieve restrictions.

Heavyweights CAN'T LIFT Ultra Heavyweights
Light Heavyweights CAN'T LIFT Ultra Heavyweights, Super Heavyweights
Divas CAN'T LIFT Ultra Heavyweights, Super Heavyweights, Heavyweights

Ultra and Super Heavyweights also possess the ability to lift Heavyweights and 
under and throw them out of the ring to bypass the Royal Rumble meter.

                              O================O

The wrestlers in this game are scored in 8 categories.  They are:

Strength - How much damage the wrestler deals out

Submission - How long a wrestler can apply a submission hold

Durability - How much damage the wrestler can withstand

Technique - How well the wrestler counters attacks

Speed - How fast the wrestler moves

Charisma - How fast the wrestler's momentum builds

Hardcore - How good the wrestler is with weapons

Stamina - How slow the wrestler's stamina gauge depletes

The categories are rated out of 10.

The wrestlers are also given an overall rating.  The rating IS NOT the sum of 
the 8 category ratings.

| Is there any way to unlock Jake "The Snake" Roberts without using the |

| What characters have specific season mode storylines?                 |
|                                                                       | 
| None really have specific storylines.  THQ just used the term to      |
| glorify certain storylines like ECW, which is specifically a          |
| storyline of Rob Van Dam, not what you and I thought they meant.      |
