Summary: Compared to some of the new SmackDown games that are out- "Here Comes The Pain" or "SmackDown VS Raw" .... this game is just plain boring. The selection of wrestlers is awesome, but it doesn't take long for the novelty to wear off...and you're left playing a slow paced, repetitve game.
Summary: I've been playing wrestling games since 1988's WWF Wrestlemania for NES and I've played damn near every game since then for all consoles. I know my wrestling games and this one sucks. Although this game has some improvments over the former legends of wrestling games, it's still way short on moves.
Summary: You would think that after nearly twenty years of making wrestling games Acclaim would have learned how to do it better than this by now. Sadly, this isn't the case. "Showdown" takes a very interesting concept and ruins it so much that it quickly reminds you why these legends are just that: Legends...
Summary: I bought this game drooling at the idea that I could have The Ravishing One vs. Mr. Wonderful in a first blood match but the slow responsiveness of the controls and lack of replayability ruins this game.
Summary: I got the game a few days ago, and I was wondering if the empty boxes on the character select screen were for hidden characters. If it is for hidden people can somebody tell me how to get them thanks
Summary: This game was made strictly for the 80's wrestling. I got to admit I'm one, but this game just doesn't do it for me. The controls are not good. When you press a button and two seconds later, they do the move, it's not really good.
Summary: Showdown does have a great variety of legends in this game but don't be fooled. The controls are still very hard to learn and seem to get stuck during game play. In addition, there are some glitches that need to be worked out in this game.
Summary: This game is full of some of the greatest wrestlers of all time. I was looking forward to its realease for some time. It of course is missing a few of the biggest names(like Ric Flair) but that is the least of this games problems.
Summary: If you are a wrestling fan, this game is a big disappointment. Sure the wrestlers they have chosen for the game are some of the biggest names in the business, but that is the only good thing about the game.
