: : : : : WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain


[edit] Background

The latest installment of the best-selling wrestling series will place a greater focus on the actual gameplay and fighting system, with submissions playing a much more significant role - lending a more strategic element to the game.

[edit] Gameplay

This installment of the game plays very similarly to it's predecessors, it uses the same basic player controls, but a significant addition was made in the grapple department, as the 0 button is now a grapple in itself, adding to the other four makes possible about 20 moves, excluding the regular grapples, adding more. This game's basic gameplay premise is to beat your opponent and pin him, and you must do this by wearing him or her down.
