Players have more than thirty players representing the World Wrestling Federation at their disposal. Among them were the most famous ring, such as Kane, The Rock, Triple H, Stone Cold, Mankind or Big Show. Each player is equipped with his own ticket, as well as characteristic taunts or special attacks. Console owners can stand up to fight in several types of matches, in which two to even four wrestlers participate at the same time. Battles differ in rules and goals to be achieved. Some assume the use of objects for fighting, while others take place in a cage.

Developed by Yuke's combat mechanics studio is relatively easy to master, but at the same time difficult to learn perfectly. Players can attack with traditional blows as well as throws and tricks, depending on the situation in the ring and the player's key combination. At any time, the console owner can also use the key responsible for the counter or rush his character and, for example, use the ropes to carry out a different type of attack.

Game modes

WWF SmackDown! offers several fun modes and allows up to four players to fight at once. The basic module is the Season, in which the selected player tries to reach the first place in the ranking and win all the belts, participating and winning subsequent events. In this mode it is possible to develop the skills of the selected wrestler and discover further special attacks for him. The game also has an extensive character creation editor, where everyone can create their own alter ego or dream wrestler - a new WWF star.

Technical issues

Prepared by Japanese studio Yuke's game is strongly based on WWF license. Fully three-dimensional game can boast of well reproduced players, as well as the use of their real tickets or comments.
