Review by Tom Allen
3 Stars out of 4

WWF Smackdown offers the most intuitive, jump-in-and-play controls of any wrestling game yet. The game offers the largest interactive backstage arena yet, and finally, female wrestlers are added into the mix along with recent stars The Rock, Triple H, and Chyna. All the game needs is a Dreamcast version.

Not surprisingly, the game has modes galore. (Is it me or do all my wrestling reviews say "modes galore"?) Exhibition, Season, Create Pay Per View, and Create-a-Superstar are the main offerings, along with fighting set-ups such as single match, tag match, handicap, Battle Royal, Royal Rumble, King of the Ring, hardcore match (backstage), Anywhere Fall (backstage), the ubiquitous Cage match, Survival, and Special Referee, whose choices may reflect a bias, since these referees are themselves wrestlers! They will count fast or slow, depending on which wrestler they prefer. If a referee ticks you off, you can slam him into the mat!

The Multi Tap allows four human players to compete in one ring, but I'm still waiting for the technology to allow 20 wrestlers in one ring. Imagine the online multi-player possibilities there!
