Latest WWF SmackDown!: Just Bring It Forum Posts

In November 2001 the SmackDown! series made it's long awaited debut on the Playstation 2 with WWF SmackDown!: Just Bring It. The 3rd game in the series had a hard job trying to match it's predecessor WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role, a game many fans still consider the best in the series. The upgrade in graphics allowed us to see full animated ring entrances and the introduction of Story Mode allowed the player more control over the destiny of their chosen wrestler as they progressed through the season.


Added Features

This was the first game in the series to feature commentary, with Michael Cole and Tazz featured as the announcers. One improvement in this game is the appearance of six-man tag team matches, as well as six-man and eight-man battle royals (elimination matches the latter appearing only in this game). Additionally, this was the first game of the series to give each wrestler two finishing moves, as well as the first to allow editing of the in-game wrestlers' move sets. Just Bring It was also the first game in the series to feature authentic, complete ring entrances. The game features several arenas that WWE held events at in 2000 and 2001. There is also arenas based on each WWE television show.




Season Mode

Rather than the Season Modes presented in the previous SmackDown! games, Just Bring It has a Story Mode. The player is given more control over their wrestler's activities in Just Bring It's Story Mode, such as having the ability to chose which WWF title to go after and having choices to respond to key WWF Personal when asked a question by them. Throughout Story Mode, the player is able to attain unlock-ables, including additional superstars.

Just Bring It Season Mode Guide


Chris Jericho in a Ladder match from Just Bring It.

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, A One on Tag match or a One on Three match. This match is against all odds.

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

Hardcore Match - Anything goes in this match. The wrestlers will bring their signature weapon to the ring and hope to completely destroy their opponent. You can have Singles, Tornado Tag matches, or just any of the more basic matches. You can even have a Time Limit Title match where you have to try and keep your belt throughout the time limit. If someone pins you, there still may be time to pin them back!

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.

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.

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

Casket Match- Get thrown in a casket and the match is over. Simple.

Hell in a Cell - Like a Cage Match, only you can be thrown through it!

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

Ironman - In 15, 20 or 30 Minutes, see who can get most falls and submissions between you and your opponent.

Ladder Match - Climb the ladder, grab the belt, and have your arm raised in victory.

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

Table - First person to go through the wooden table looses the match.

Slobberknocker - This is only for single players, as you must see how many different people you can beat within the time limit.

TLC - Tables, and Ladders, and Chairs? Oh my!


On the Platinum cover, the WWF logo was changed to WWE and the new Smackdown logo replaced the old one
