  "Sweaty, oily, near-naked men. Is that your bag?"

This game is more of the same. It's the exact same game as 'Here Comes the Pain' except it has a roster that is severely lacking. Gone are most of the top tier superstars like Stone Cole Steve Austin, Goldberg, and Brock Lesnar. They have been replaced with scrubs such as Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade. The two new features of significants are the additions to the legends roster and the online mode. Bret 'The Hitman' Hart and Andre the Giant have been added, but it's also filled with wrestlers that already populate the regular roster such as the Undertaker and Kane. We can only hope that THQ will snatch up the Legends of Wrestling license from Acclaim and redo it with the Smackdown engine. The online mode sucks so it's not worth talking about. All you need to know is that it sucks. Still no nudity in the 'Bra n' Panties' match. Overall, it's a fine game, but stick with last years version if you want to play with a better roster.
