I have been playing Smackdown games since they were on PS1. The game has lost a lot of what made it cool to me. When I got Smackdown, I was amazed at how fun the game was. The never ending season mode that would allow you to plug in any of your created wrestlers and have them in the story of the game was one of the best times I have had playing a wrestling game. While the stories were a little lacking back then, the game play was awesome.... Fast forward 8 years and I have to say while the graphics have greatly improved, the entertainment value of the game has been destroyed. The wrestlers look great, the movement is smooth and the story lines are more involved and that allows me to say that the game is good and worth a play/rent.

This game would have a much higher level of enjoyment if there were more options with a season mode / story mode.

All in all, I would tell the average fan of the series or of wrestling in general to give this game a shot, but if you are anything like me, you may want to search for the old version of the game on e-bay.
