    The most remarkable change may be this year's Season mode, which sets a new standard for wrestling games. [Jan 2003, p.48]

    Forget what the magazines say about Smackdown, because I can guarantee you not one of those brainwashers dissected this game the way I did just now.
  3. Well, knock me across the head with a sledgehammer and call me Koko B. Ware...Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth is a great title!
  4. You can pick it up and play with barely any learning curve, and the multiplayer of the game gives it nearly infinite replay value.
  5. While SmackDown is still quite a long way from matching the visual peaks reached by other highly popular fighting series (Tekken, DOA, Soul Blade…), there have been massive strides in the right direction with this fourth instalment from the THQ/Yule team.

    It has its faults, and they’re similar to last year’s, but there’s no better game for getting the feel of being a WWE superstar.

    The controls bug me, too. Where's the innovation? [Jan 2003, p.136]

I played it for like half an hour and was like playing SD1 for the first time! It feels different and is harder than the previous installments. But I'm sure I'll get used to it. I'm just glad I picked this game up! If you are a Smackdown fan go get this game now! Expand

I remember this having one of the better storyline combinations than its predecessors and the gameplay was funny and entertaining. Loved playing outside of the arena and Hell In A Cell matches. Okay, graphics wise it wasn't awesome but it was made ages ago so you need to take that into account. Great game. Expand
