WWE Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain

This year's SD! is a lot more challenging than any of the past games. Even at "Normal," the A.I. can be brutal, countering nearly all of your moves, but not enough to frustrate the gamer. The A.I. is just good enough to irritate the player, but in a...

As GAF's resident wrestling game aficionado (despite what Wade may think of this ;-?), it is my pleasure to bring to you-- the readers of GAF-- my review of THQ's and Yukes/Jakks Pacific's latest PlayStation 2 World Wide Entertainment wrestling game:...

Fans of WWE Wrestling looking for a great WWE game on their PS2 need to look no further than WWE SmackDown: Here Comes the Pain. Its single and mutiplayer modes are great, and can and will keep you entertained for hours up on hours... at least until...

WWE Smackdown! Here Comes the Pain - ps2


I had not played a “Smackdown!” game since “Smackdown!” for the PS1. Stepping into the ring with WWW Smackdown! Here Comes the Pain was a severe, albeit pleasant, shock to system. The game has grabbed me in a way that only “No Mercy” has ever topped....

WWE Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain


Let's be honest: it's just about as hard to simulate modern pro wrestling as it is to simulate a stand-up comic routine.

Four words: Bra and panties match ; Rosters are relatively up-to-date and storyline mode sufficiently detailed, despite being limited to one season of play ; The largest roster of any SmackDown title to date ; Improvements to the grappling system help...

Some favorite WWE legends, such as Hulk Hogan, are missing this time out ; Still no color commentary or play-by-play; how is it Madden and Sega/ESPN can get this some so easily year-in and year-out in football and basketball, but after five seasons,...

Following two PSone and two PS2 outings, THQ finally delivers a playable WWE game on PS2. While not without its faults, WWE SmackDown: HCTP is what wrestling fans deserved from the moment THQ got the license. A solid, if not exactly stellar, wrestling...

WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain


This tried-and-true WWE series returns with an innovative grappling system and new match types. Is Here Comes the Pain a pleasure to play?

New grappling system deepens the gameplay considerably; fantastic graphics and customizability

Load times slow the proceedings down a bit, season mode occasionally has odd logic issues

WWE Smackdown! Here Comes The Pain


No Mercy killer? Not yet.

Season mode is huge. I mean, gobsmackingly big. While some of the storylines are recycled from last year's, and some of the "new" ones are familiar to anyone who watched WWE Raw in the late 90's, the presentation and number of options available as your...
