PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Scott Langford  "Story Mode - Poor.
Entrances - Generally Pretty Good, Especially Triple H. Some Of The Guys Walk Funny Though.
Graphics - Generally Good, But There Are Too Many Sharp Edges. Stephanie Actually Looks Like Stephanie This Time.
Commentary - Given The Option Of Listening To This Crap Or Being Castrated Without Painkillers With A Rusty Spoon, I Would Choose The Spoon.
Playability - Too Easy."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Andrew Parkin  "When This Ps2 Game Came Out Before Christmas,it Was Destined To Be One Of The Best Wwf Games To Date.and I Guess It Is.the First Couple Of Things Which Impressed Me Was The The Likeness Of The Wrestlers Entrances (if You Watch Wwf You Will Agree And If You Dont You Wont Know What The Hell I Am Going On About)entrances Like Hhh And Kurt Angle (the Baldass) Were Great.and The Second Was The Choice Of Matches You Could You Have.(i Like The Ladder Matches And Tlc)other Good Points Were That You Had The Chance Go All Around The Wwf Building So You Could Go Into Offices And Parking Lots Ect.the Last 2 Good Points Was The Amount Of Wrestlers You Could Pick From And The Likeness Of Finishing Moves (the Rock Bottom Is Ace)the Bad Points Are Like Everybody Who I Have Talked To Have Said The Commentry Is Poo Poo.the Fact That Thq Had Got Michael Cole And Tazz Was Good But Some Of The Things Which They Say?!the Commentry Is Always Delayed By Atleast 3 Seconds So If You Do A Finishing Move On Your Oppenent And Then Pin Him.michael Cole Just Shouts "the Rock Bottom!!" But By That Time The Match Is Over!!the Other Bad Points Were The Story Mode.it Is Way To Short And You Have To Read What They Are Saying (i Dont Mind That But Thq Think That Only 3 Year Olds Must Play This Game Because You Could Of Read Your Local Newpaper By The Time It Takes Vince To Start On His Second Sentence!!)the Last Bad Point Was The 2d Crowd They Have.if You Go Into The Crowd The Cardboard People Quickly Move Aside Which Is Quite Funny!so Thats My First Reveiw And My Final Statement Is This-get This Game Until Smackdown Shut Your Mouth Comes Out In November But This Game Is Worth Buying So Do It!!until Next Time Bye!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Tom Paolucci  "I Was So Excited To Get This Game When I Got My Ps2 That I Borrowed It From A Friend To Check It Out, And I Am Glad I Did.

The Story Mode Is Very Short, There Are Too Many Glitches In Create Mode And All The "hidden" Items Are Way Too Easy To Unlock.

But There Are Some Improvements That I Did Like:
More Than 4 Wrestlers On The Screen At One Time Is Nice, And Being Able To Change The Existing Wrestlers Moves Was A Ncie Touch. I Personally Like The "slobber Knocker" Challenge The Best.

I Really Love The Smackdown Games, But I Will Wait To Get "shut Your Mouth" When It Comes Out Rather Than Buy This One, This Could Have Been Slightly Better."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Amandeep Singh Kang  "I Was Really Excited When I Got This Game, It Was Soooooooo Hyped Up After All. I Saw The Smackdown: Just Bring It Advert On Tv. You Know, The One Which Shows Chris Jericho Dropkicking A Ladder Onto Chris Benoit And Y2j Slingshotting A Ladder Onto Benoit, By Using The Ropes. I Was Ecstatic That You Could Do All Of These Things And The Wrestlers In The Game Looked Really Realistic. But I Was Way Off! The Only Things That You Could Do That Was Shown In The Movie Was The Boston Crab On The Ladder. Why, In Blue Hell, Did Thq Make A Fake Movie To Show What Smackdown: Just Bring It Was Supposed To Be Able To Do! Man I Was Way Off. This Is One Of The Worst Wwf Games Around. Thq Inc. Seems To Think That They Can Just Make Any Half-assed Game And Then They Expect It To Sell Like Wild Fire. Sure It`s Got Some Good Features, But The Problems And The Bugs (there Are Loads Of Them) Out Weigh The Good Things. This Game Shows Many Signs Of Being Totally Rushed By Thq And So Has Some Bugs. Some Are Small, But There Is A Bug That Can Destroy The 4,500 Kb Wwf Smackdown: Just Bring It Data File On Your Memory Card. That`s A Big Problem If You Have Created Loads Of Wrestlers And Have Just Clocked The Whole Game. Clocking The Game Only Takes A Couple Of Days Anyway, So That Not That Big A Loss. But Creating Wrestlers Takes Hours Upon Hours."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Alex Cook  "I Am A Massive Wwf Fan, So Any Version Of The Smackdown Games Pleases Me. However, This Game Raises The Standard By A Considerable Margin. The Graphics Are Extremely Good, If Not Mind Blowing. The Roster Of Wrestlers Is Reasonable, Though Noticably Short Of Any Of The New Former Wcw Stars. Some Annoyances Include The Commentary, Which Is Stilted And Repetitive, And The Career Mode, Which Is Far Too Short, And Lacking In Action (and Includes Short And Pointless First Person Elements, Where You Simply Walk Across A Hall To Find Michael Cole Or Earl Hebner). However, The Main Fun Of Fighting Games Has Always Been The Multiplayer Element, And This Game Is No Exception To The Rule. The Variety Of Matches Is Huge, And Very Varied, With 'tlc', 'last Man Standing' And 'hell In A Cell' Being A Few Of The Choices Open To You. This, On Top Of The Graphical Improvement And Fluid And Fast Paced Gameplay, Makes This Game Not Only A Worthy Addition To The Smackdown Series, But Also The Jewel In The Ps2's Fighting Games Crown."

It Took Me 50 Minutes To Complete The Whole Season Mode Which Was Short, While In Smackdown 2 I Still Haven't Finished It. The Entrance Music And The Matches Are Pretty Good. Hopefully The Next Wwf Game Will Be Better."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Brian Brackenbury  "I've Always Been A Fan Of The Series, And I Played Smackdown 3 To Death. Doing So Really Did'nt Take That Long. The Story Mode Was Entertaining For About Oh 3 Or 4 Matches, And Any Descent Gamer Won The Wwf Title In The First Few Days Of Having The Game! Then All The Title Defenses Are One On One Singles Matches, With No Run Ins Or Special Refs. This Wouldn't Be So Bad If You Could Defend Your Title In Exibition Mode, But You Can't...
So All They Need To Do Is Combine The Multi- Player Career Mode From Smackdown2 And The Graphics & Interaction From Just Bring It. Don't Forget Exibition Title Matches! And Smackdown 4 Would Be One Bad Ass, Top Of The Charts For Months, Never Ending Struggle, Kick Your Kids Off The Console, Video Game!
Other Than That The Multi Tap 6 Players At Once Was An Awsome Improvement, Along With The Match Types. The Commentary Could Have Been Worse, I Liked Pulling Of A Finisher And Hearing Them Come Unglued.
And Thats What Brack Thinks...i'll Be Waiting For Sd4"

Lilgoku79  "It A Good Game But The Sound Has Been A Really Big Weakness For The All The Smacdown Versions. Its Getting A Litlle Better But Still Alot Of Room For Improvement. The Graphic Id Give A B- It Not The Best And Not The Worst. My Overall Is That If You Like Wrestling This Game Has To Be Bought. But If You Dont Like Wrestling That Much Then Rent It Before You Buy It. This Game Will Remain Populer For Monts. But Probably Later On After A Year Or More You Will Probably Sell It. Thats What Im Goin Do When Wwf Smackdown 4 Will Come Out. Well That My Review By Lilgoku."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Frank  "Smackdown 3 Is By Far The Best Wwf Game In The Series But It Does Have Some Annoying Drawbacks. First Of All The Story Mode Sucks, No Wait The Story Mode Really Sucks. The Commentary Is Pitiful. Tazz And Michael Cole Sound Like They Are Retarded. Why Even Bother Putting This Feature In The Game If It Is Going To Sound Like This? Did Nobody Test This Game Before It Was Released? I Was Really Looking Forward To The Commentary Feature When I Heard About It And Then I Wished It Wasn't There. Also, The Lack Of Samples Based On Actual Wrestlers Is Disappointing. They Were In The Previous Two Games Why Not This One. More Samples Would Make The Create A Wrestler Much Easier To Use. Faces Are Difficult To Get Right Without Spending Hours Messing With The Settings And The Hair, F Hair, And B Hair Never Quite Match Unless You Give Everyone Black Hair. Despite These Shortcomings This Game Is Pretty Damn Cool. The Entrances Are Great. The Amount Of Moves To Choose From Is Good, Although A Create A Move Feature Would Be A Nice Addition. Multiple Finishers Is A Good Feature As Well. The Graphics Are Pretty Good Especially When Performing A Finishing Move Like The People's Elbow Or The Kane Chokeslam. They Actually Look Like Their Real Life Counterparts. This Is Still One Of My Favorite Games. If You Are A Fan Of Pro Wrestling Then This Game Is A Must Have. Go Buy The Game."

The Matches Are Superb And So Is The Animtion For All The Moves And Entrances. This Game Gets Very Repetative And Becomes Very Boring. Caw Is Good But Thq Said It Would Be Easy To Create Wcw Superstars And Its Not And To Improve They Need To Have Superstars And Original Pre-made Heads."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Anton Borzov  "Smackdown 2 Is Better Than Smackdown 3. In Smackdown 3, Some Dumbass Genius Took Away The Normal Season Mode Which Never Ends Basicly, And Replaced It With A Sack Of $hit Where You Only Get To Walk Around The Building 2 Or 3 Times And You Only Get To Fight In 4 Matches Until You Win A Title Or Loose. Also, If You Stand Infront Of A Car In Smackdown 3, It Doesn't Run You Over Anymore. Then, Theres The Part Where People's Legs, Arms, Heads, Shoulders, Hands, And Feet Go Through Other People Which Really Sucks In My Point Of Veiw And, As Jammy Said, The Comentators Say Exact Same Things Exept They Change 2 Things, Names Of Matches And Names Like,"this...hell In A Cell Match...is A Important Match.""

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Jeremy Schisler  "I Have Always Been Impressed With The Smackdown Series. Just Bring It No Exception As Thq Both Raises And Lowers The Bar In The Same Game. The Graphics Right Out Of The Gate Are Amazing And The Fact There Is Only One Load Time In The Game Is Great. The Amount Of Moves Are Good, Some Of The Reversals Appear Way Too Much. This Isnt A Bad Thing Espically When You Are Playing Another Human. The Overall Entrances Were Good And Plenty Of Them I Feel That Putting Together Your Own Entrance Like Wrestlemania 2000 Would Be Great. The Music Was Good With All The Current Updates. I Would Have Liked To See A Better Selection In The Misc. Music(not Just Background Music)!!! I Found The Create A Wrestler Layering Idea To Be Fantastic And Being Able To Position Them Was A Smart Idea. Creating The Faces Was A Little Difficult And Could Use Little Work. I Was Very Dissapointed In The Limited Season Mode, No Exibition Title Defenses, And No Introduction For Guest Referees. The Match Types Were Good With Plenty Of Variation, And I Also Think They Should Add A Few More Weapons And Backstage Areas. The Commentary Was Horrendous And Should Be Muted If Possible. So Many Broken Phrases And Sentances It Just Wasnt Good Work. But Seeing Thq Always Are Making Improvements I Am Assured That The Next Game Will As The Others Have Done But The Previous Game To Shame."

Eric  "I Think There Are Big Improvements From The Last, But They Left In Some Stuff That Bothered Me. I Think The Targetting System Is Burdensome When You're Facing Multiple Opponents. The Ref Is Bias Against Your Team Whenever You Or Your Teammate Comes Into The Ring. The Worst Thing Is That Everyone Gets Up Too Fast. The Only Way To Win Is Pretty Much Using Your Finisher. They Don't Show Any Signs Of Getting Tired. Well, Besides All That, I Like It."

Dean Gibson (dean)  "WWF And Wrestling Fans In General Will Like This Game. I Would Like To Start Off By Saying That I Love The Game And Many Others Will Like It To.

The Ref In The Ring Is A Good Idea, But The Commentary Needs To Be Worked On, Tazz Fighting And Doing Commentary At The Same Time??? Rhyno...won...the...match. I Would Have Prefered Heyman And Jr Doing The Commentary But We Have Settle For Michael Cole Who Keeps Asking ' Who Is Going To Win The Match?' Good Game, Could Have Been Better, Worth The Money, Get It!"

Hidden Items Are Also A Strong Point. You Can Uncover Many Hidden Wrestlers, Entrance Movies And Music And Moves From Many Superstars Such As Ddp, Scott Steiner, Rvd And Even Hulk Hogan!
Perhaps Some Other "reviewers" Should Play The Game More Indepth Before Making Their Reviews. If A Certain Storyline Is Played Out Correctly, Stephanie Mcmahon Is In Fact Unlocked, Complete With Her Authentic Entrance Video, Moves And Music!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Jammy  "I Believe That This Game Is An Improvement Upon Sd2 In Some Ways, It Also Leads To Some Modes Which Could Call This A Failure.

Improvements:
1. The Game Has Many More Matches To Battle Through. I Believe That The Introduction Of The Ultimate Submission, And The 6 Man Tornado Tag Matches, Are A Real Improvement To The Game.

2. The Abilty To Unlock Hidden Items Increases The Excitement Of The Game, But I Personally Still Believe That The Characteristics Menu On Smackdown 1 Was A Good Way To Help The Lifespan Longer.

3. The Increased Amount Of Moves Adds Many More Posabilities Of The Game. The Good Looking Moves Like The Shinobi, And Oklahoma Street Driver. There Are Secret Wrestlers Move Sets Which Help The Creater Make The Wrestlers Easier To Create.

4. There's No 30 Second Loading Time Before A Match, And The Introduction Of The Referee Makes The Game More Realistic.

5. Music From Limp Bizkit, Motorhead, And Disturbed, Adds A Bit Of Music Class To The Game.

Dissapointments.
1. The Story Mode Is Limited, There Are Only A Certain Number Of Paths To Go Down, With A Maximum Of 4 Matches Per Season.

2. The Referee Always Takes About 3 Seconds To Get Down And Start The Count, Thus Giving The Opponent A Chance To Kick Out.

3. The Create A Ppv Mode Was Taken Out Of The Game, This Means That The Ability To See How Good Of A Match Booker You Are Won't Be Taken To The Limit In This Game.

4. The Only Way A Title Can Be Defended, Is In Story Mode. This Means That You Won't Be Able To Defend A Title In A Cool Tlc Match. This Is A Dissapointing Aspect Of The Game, Which Could Have Easily Be Improved.

5. The Commentary Is Annoying And Leaves A Lot To Be Desired. Michael Cole Always Says Things Which He Would Never Say In Real Life. Eg."anything Can Happen In The Singles Match" And Tazz Would Say Stuff Like "jeff Hardy Is Great In Tlc Match."
A Dialouge Between These Two Would Be Something Like.

Mc: "welcome To Raw Is War"
Mc: "michael Cole At Ringside"
Ta: "hey, Don't Forget Me"
Mc: "this Will Be A Great Match"
Mc: "anything Can Happen In The Singles Match"
Ta: "suplex"
Mc: "do You Ever Shut Up?"

There Is Thankfully An Option Which Lets You Turn This Off

Overall: I Believe That This Game Could Have Been Improved In Many Ways And Really Lacks Lastability."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Ethan Thomas  "I Have Played ( And Owned ) The Previous Two Smackdowns And I Must Give Them A Little Credit For The Matches And Wrestlers But Everyone Who's Played Them Must Admitt That They Werent The Best Around, Oh Yea, The Matches Were Great An The Wrestlers Were Cool Looking And All But Still The Same Blocky Character Designs And Sore Graphics Haunted Them, And When The First Ps2 Smackdown Was Announced Everyone Had Their Douts, Even Me, But When I Saw The First Screenshot For The Game I Must Say I Was Impressed. The First Improvement I Noticed Were The Entrances, In The Old Ps1 Smackdowns, The Wrestlers Theme Movie Would Cover Your Tv And Then The Wrestlers Would Walk Out In Front Of Them, Almost Like Somebody Standing In Font Of The Screen At The Movies, But In Smackdown Jbi It Shows The Full Stage And The Wrestlers Walk Out Of The Curtains, Almost Like On The Tv Show. The Second Improvement Is The Commentators, In The 2nd Ps1 Smackdown The Commentators Were 2d And You Coud Barely Even Tell They Were There, But In Smackdwn Jbi Their 3d, And They Even Talk, And You Can Also Interact With Them ( Kick Them, Punch Them Etc. ) I Mean Its All There, Theres Even An All The Time Every Match Referee, That You Can Beat Up Just Like Another Wrestler, And Theres Over 70 Matches To Choose From. The Final Improvement I Saw Was The Backstage Area, This Is Were Most Of The Fun Starts, There Are All Sorts Of Tasks And Other Things You Can Do Here, You Can Fight Here Hang Out Here And Even Hunt A Tag Partner Here, I Mean Everything That You Would Expect From The Tv Show Is All Here, And If You Are A Serious Wrestling Fan This Game Is For You, So Wrestling Fans, Ps2 Or No Ps2 Read My Words Buy This Game Now!!!!!!!!!! You'll Thank Me :)"

Red  "Great Simulation. Graphics Aren't Much Better Than 2, But The Reactions And Interactions Between The Wrestlers Is Much Cleaner. Story Mode Sucks, I Much Prefered The Smackdown 2 Version.
Create A Wrestler Is Great, Much More Options Than 2, Still Not Perfect Though. Need To Include More Sample Wrestlers Based On Previous Superstars.
The 6-man Tag Is A Great Addition, And The 8-player Battle Royals Are Fantastic. If You Find The Screen To Crowded Stop Playing On A 20" Set.
To Bad It Doesn't Support 5 Players On The Multi-tap (would Be Even Better With 10 On 2 Multi-taps!!).
Definitly One To Own."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Rick Hidalgo  "While Jbi Missed The Mark On A Few Features Of The Game, It Greatly Improved Upon And Even Surpassed Many Features Of Its Past "sports Entertainment" Simulations.

The Graphics Are Good, But Nothing Breathtaking For The Ps2. The Entrance Moves Are Some Of The Best This Gamer Has Ever Seen.

Hidden Items Are Also A Strong Point. You Can Uncover Many Hidden Wrestlers, Entrance Movies And Music And Moves From Many Superstars Such As Ddp, Scott Steiner, Rvd And Even Hulk Hogan!
Perhaps Some Other "reviewers" Should Play The Game More Indepth Before Making Their Reviews. If A Certain Storyline Is Played Out Correctly, Stephanie Mcmahon Is In Fact Unlocked, Complete With Her Authentic Entrance Video, Moves And Music!

The Story Mode Is A Weak Point In The Game, Other Than Unlocking Hidden Items, It Doesn't Serve Any Purpose. Although It Is Worth Mentioning That Many Of The "unknown Move Sets" Are Actually Move Sets For Well Known Superstars! For Instance, Unknown 11 Xpc Is Actually The Move Set For Wwf Superstar X-pac. You Can Use This Along With The Create Mode To Build An Almost Carbon Copy Of X-pac And Many Other Superstars, Among Them; Booker T, Sting, Rob Van Dam, Scott Steiner And Many More.

Once All 52 Cards Are Unlocked, Its Only Use Is For You To Choose A Champion To Defend His/her Title(s).

The Music And Sound Effects Are Fantastic, As Would Be Expected Because The Sounds Were Great On The Ps1 Versions Of This Game. The Commentary Leaves A Lot To Be Desired Fortunately, You Can Choose To Turn This Feature Off, Beware Though, If You Disable Commentary, You Will Also Lose The Ability To Hear Your Wrestlers Stats As They Make Their Way To The Ring.

The Best Overall Feature Of This Game Is The Choices Of Matches. Everything From The Hell In The Cell To Tlc (tables, Ladders And Tables Oh My!) Matches Are Here. The Royal Rumble Is A Special Match That Pits 30 Wwf Superstars (up To 8 In The Ring At A Time) In A Battle Royal Style Match...every 2 Minutes Or So Another Superstar Enters The Ring Until 1 Remains. When You Choose Your Wrestler, You Can Choose At Which Time You'll Enter (by Choosing A Number Between 1-30. You Can Also Choose Not To Enter A Wrestler In The Royal Rumble And Watch The 30 Combatants Fight It Out.

For Those Times When You Don't Feel Like Wrestling, You Can Choose To Be A Wrestler's Manager. Escort Your Chosen Wrestler To The Ring And Assist Him/her To Victory!

You May Find Yourself Wanting To Officiate Rather Than Participate In A Match. Place Yourself In The Ring As A Special Referee (a Wrestler Of Your Choice) And Sit Back And Watch The Computer Controlled Wrestlers Go At It! You Can Call The Match Cleanly, Or You Can Attack Any Wrestler Of Your Choosing; Let Me Warn You Though, These Guys Don't Take Kindly To Being Slapped Around By The Ref!

Overall, Jbi Will Appeal Mostly To Wrestling And Fighting Game Fans, But Even The Occasional Fighting Fan Will Find Something To Keep Themselves Entertained Long After All The Hidden Items Have Been Unlocked. If In Doubt, Rent It First, Then I Guarantee You Will Run To The Nearest Store And "just Bring It" Home!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Lewis Sutton  "The Story Mode Is Cool But A Tad Repetitive Although I Think They Are On The Right Track And Smackdown 4 Should Be An Improvement. The Game Play Is Great But The Only Thing I Really Don't Like Is The Royal Rumble Where You Have To Many People In The Ring At The Same Time It Makes It Hard To See What Is Going On. I Think You Should Limit The Amount Of Players In The Ring To 4. But All In All I Can See Myself Playing This Game Untill Smackdown 4."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
John L. Zacoi, Jr.  "If You Enjoy Wrestling This Is Your Game. Great Graphics, Smooth Gameplay, And Excellent Animations. Don't Expect Much Of A Leap From Smackdown 2, Aside From The Elements Listed Above. The Story Mode Is A Bit Broken, Meaning That It Is Not Very, "deep." You Only Go Through 4-5 Matches, Before It Is Over, And You Begin Again. Several Modes To Choose From, If You Enjoy Re-creating Matches, You Will Have A Good Time."

GRAPHICS:
Very Poor - an embarrassment to the console
Nothing spectacular, but still functional
Quality visuals that clearly show the power of this machine
Graphical masterpiece that is amongst the best currently available
Pushing the visual capability to it's absolute limit
This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

SOUND:
Makes little use of the CD capacity and audio hardware
Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action
Quality atmospheric sounds that are highly effective
Music and effects that greatly enhance the overall enjoyment
Sounds like this were never thought possible on this console

PLAY-ABILITY (The way the game actually plays)
No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect
Top-notch title with nearly flawless gameplay
Little room for improvement and the best game of its type
Introduces new gameplay aspects not thought possible for this console

LAST-ABILITY
Wouldn't even buy for your worst enemy
Life-span would be a short rental period
Recommended purchase which should offer a weeks enjoyment
Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
