  1. If you're not a fan of wrestling, the flaws will easily overshadow the details, but if you're looking for an easy title to play, fun multiplayer, and above all, authentic WWF experience, Just Bring It will fulfill your needs.

    Grating commentary by announcers Michael Cole and Tazz will have you scouring to find the mute button on your remote.

    Inside the ring the experience is dulled by a horribly unpredictable camera and terribly flat, disjointed commentary. [Jan 2002, p.82]

    Die-hard fans wresting fans will love this game. [Jan 2002, p.142]
  5. The gameplay is alternately fun and frustrating, the graphics are both striking and stilted, and the sound... No, the sound’s laughably bad all the way through.
  6. 70
