Conclusion: As you can probably tell, I was most disappointed by this year’s effort, and anyone considering a wrestling game (maybe for that nice slim PSTwo) would be much better off picking up the year-old Here Comes the Pain for less than half the price.
Pros: Still has great, mode and loads of options., It’s not as bad as Backyard Wrestling Two.
Summary: The devil, as they say, is in the details and it's this area that the latest instalment in the Smackdown! franchise focuses its efforts. For the first time we have the actual wrestlers adding their voices, grunts and growls to the storyline theatrics, which is welcome, and the return of match commentators provides some amusing (if repetitive) banter to liven up the bouts.
