'WWE Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth'
(PS2 / ASIN: B00006IJJF / SKN: 637338 / Rated 'Teen' / $49.99)

Features:Layeth the Smacketh Down in this in-depth story mode with multiple character paths. New match types include Elimination Tag and Tornado with thousands of animations, including superstar signature moves. Single- and multi-player modes.

Description:Whether you like rasslin' or not, it certainly is good for one thing: video games, especially the Smackdown series. As embarrassing as it may be to watch large seminaked men pretending to hurt each other in real life, being a virtual large seminaked man and hitting your best friend over the head with a stepladder is always good for a laugh.

Verdict:A really great game. If you like wrestling, then this is the game for you. Better graphics than ever before, great intros, an updated roster including big superstars such as The Rock, The Undertaker, Kane, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam, and "Stone Cold Steve Austin, the brand extension draft lets you choose who you want on RAW or Smackdown, an awesome season mode, and many features to choose from, including: Create-A-Wrestler and Special Matches. A full sized 'Hell In A Cell' lets you destroy your opponent, a TLC match (Tables, Ladders, and Chairs) lets you dive off ladders and break through tables. In this game you can create your own fantasy match. Sure wrestling may be fake, but the game makes it look like it hurts really bad. Now you can interfere in matches, beat your opponents while they're still walking down to the ring, and you can beat them after the match is over as well. I hope this helped some of you. I've been doing research about this game for about a year now and I can guarantee you that you'll be getting your moneys worth. Out of all the wrestling games I've ever seen, this one will be the best of them all!
