Released in the Spring of 2000, WWF SmackDown! took wrestling games to the next level of arcade fighting previously unseen in such wrestling games as WWF Attitude and WWF War Zone. With its simple controls and it's fast paced gameplay it became an instant hit with Wrestling fans and Playstation owners around the world. It is part of the WWF SmackDown! series based on the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) professional wrestling promotion. This game was succeeded by WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role.

WWF SmackDown! was the first WWF game on the PlayStation to be published by THQ, taking over for the previous publisher Acclaim.

[edit] Season Mode

Playing the season mode allows you to take a WWF Superstar or Created Wrestler through real-life wrestling scenarios. Decisions you make backstage can alter the course of your season, making alliances and enemies. The allegiances and rivalries that are determined in preseason will stick for the remainder of your career.

One to four players can go through a season.

Each event has six matches, represented by a Card. The matches range from Single to Hardcore to Survival. Depending on how popular your wrestler is, you will be billed in different positions and various matches on the Card. During the season, before each match, you will have the opportunity to either play the Match or Skip it on the card screen.

During season mode, most of the events are randomized between House Show, Raw is War and SmackDown! However, each season, there are several marquis (PPV) events that showcase the best talent in the WWF.

[edit] Match Types

Anywhere Fall match from WWF SmackDown!

Singles Match - The most straightforward match, just a simple one-on-one.

Tag Match - Four Wrestlers (two teams of two) are in the match, but only two fight at a time until someone tags in their partner.

Handicap Match - This can either be a One on Two match, or a One on Three match. This match is definatly against all odds.

Battle Royal - Fight against three other wrestlers until only one of them are left standing. Elimination rules.

Royal Rumble - Forget fighting against just a few guys, this match puts you against 29 other men. The only way to be out the match is to go over the top rope and have both feet touch the floor. Two men will start out and after some intervals of time, more will join in the ring,

King of the Ring - An 8 Man Tournament built up of singles matches, until there is only one winner who shall be crowned, king of the ring.

Hardcore Match - Anything goes in this match. The wrestlers will bring thier signature weapon to the ring and hope to completly destroy thier opponent.

Anywhere Fall - Forget the ring, this match can end anywhere.

Steel Cage - The ring is surrounded by a huge steel cage and the only way to win is to escape.

Survival Match - This can be a three or four man dance, commonly known as a triple threat or a fatal four way. Only way to win is by pin or submission, but it's harder than it sounds when there is another person in the equation.

Special Referee - Any wrestler can put on the black and white shirt and take charge in the referee position.

I Quit - Dare you say the words 'I quit' infront of everyone in the arena?
