Summary: This is an ok game, the roster has got four versions of Mick Foley: Cactus Jack, Dude love, Mankind, and Mick Foley himself. It`s even got Hulk Hogan. The controls are horrible though, you have to press the Y button to run and once you`re running, you cant change your direction and if your using a small person like Rey Mysterio, if you try to get somebody off there feet, u can`t move them at all.
Summary: The music and sound is well done, but there aren't enough options. 5 voice options and a dozen base songs. The music and voices just repeat way too much. The graphics are average at best, even considering this title is 5 years old. All the wrestler bodies look the same, and everything is either blurry or boxy.
Conclusion: Seems dull, and the controls seem to not make much sense at first... BUT give it 10 minutes and a bit of patience and there's a great game there. Once you've mastered the controls, and put a bit of time into playing around with the hundreds of options, you'll get hooked on trying to get everything just right... Not for button mashers. Wouldn't buy it, but its worth renting for sure.
Conclusion: This is the first Smackdown game I have played for a long time. Overall I am very impressed with it. The graphics are great, and there are plenty of game modes to play. Where the game really comes into its own is when playing with a mate (No not in the way you was just thinking! Be honest!) as there are plenty of match types to be getting on with. If you play this through an HD LCD TV or PC monitor you can see how much details has gone into modelling the fighters.
