Eduardo Gory Guerrero Llanes (October 9, 1967 - November 13, 2005), better
known by his ring name, Eddie Guerrero, was a Mexican American professional
wrestler. Born into a legendary Mexican wrestling family, Guerrero managed to
maintain the storied Guerrero family legacy. Through the 1990s, he had a
distinguished career, working for every major professional wrestling promotion
in the United States during that period: Extreme Championship Wrestling, World
Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment.

Guerrero's in-ring character was that of a crafty, resourceful wrestler who
would do anything to win a match. His famous mantra became "Cheat to Win."
Despite being a heel for much of his career, he became popular because of his
charisma and the fact that his character seemed to largely be a reflection of
himself.

Throughout his career, Guerrero encountered various substance abuse problems
outside of wrestling, including alcoholism and an addiction to pain killers.
His problems outside of the ring were sometimes integrated into his storylines.
Notwithstanding these issues, Guerrero won numerous titles during his career,
including the WWE Championship. He became a born again Christian in 2002.

Guerrero came from a legendary wrestling family. His father, Gory Guerrero, was
a founding father of Lucha Libre, a prominent wrestling trainer and an
influential figure in Mexican professional wrestling. His three brothers Chavo
Guerrero, Hector Guerrero and Mando Guerrero all followed in their father's
footsteps and became professional wrestlers. Guerrero's nephew, Chavo Guerrero,
Jr. also became a wrestler, while his uncle Enrique Llanes and cousin Javier
Llanes wrestle in Mexico. As a boy, Guerrero's father allowed he and Chavo, Jr.
to wrestle one another during intermissions in the wrestling arena that Gory
owned.

Guerrero was raised in El Paso, Texas and attended the University of New Mexico
as well as New Mexico Highlands University on an athletic scholarship, where he
wrestled collegiately, before returning to El Paso to train as a professional
wrestler. He debuted in 1987 in the Mexican Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre
promotion. He became a star in Mexico long before he main evented in the United
States. In the late 1980s, Guerrero debuted in the National Wrestling Alliance
affiliate World Championship Wrestling (formerly known as Jim Crockett
Promotions) as a jobber.

In 1993, Guerrero began wrestling in Japan for New Japan Pro Wrestling, where
he was known as Black Tiger II. In Mexico, he wrestled mainly for Asistencia
Asesoria y Administracion, teaming with El Hijo del Santo as the new version
of La Pareja Atómica (The Atomic Pair), the legendary tag team of Gory
Guerrero and El Santo. After Guerrero turned on Santo and allied with Art Barr
as La Pareja del Terror (The Pair of Terror), the duo became arguably the most
hated tag team in lucha libre history. Along with Barr, Konnan, Chicano Power
and Madonna's Boyfriend, Guerrero formed Los Gringos Locos (The Crazy
Americans), a heel stable. Guerrero later said that no matter how many people
joined Los Gringos Locos, the stable was all about Art. Los Gringos Locos
feuded mostly with El Hijo del Santo and his partner Octagón, eventually
ending in a Hair vs. Mask match at the first lucha pay-per-view in America,
When Worlds Collide, which they lost.

Guerrero and Barr's first break would come when they were noticed in late 1994
by the owner of Extreme Championship Wrestling, Paul Heyman, and were
approached about wrestling for him in 1995. However, Barr died before he could
join ECW with Guerrero. As an homage to his fallen friend, Guerrero adopted
his friend's finishing move, the Frog Splash.

Guerrero won the ECW World Television Championship on his debut and went on to
have a series of acclaimed matches with Dean Malenko before they both signed
with World Championship Wrestling later that year. After their last match at
the ECW arena, the locker room emptied and the two were carried around the ring
by their fellow wrestlers while the crowd chanted "Please don't go."

In WCW, Guerrero found considerable singles success, winning the WCW United
States Heavyweight Championship in late 1996 and the WCW World Cruiserweight
Championship twice in 1997. One such title match was against Rey Misterio, Jr.
at Halloween Havoc. He lost the match, but called it his favorite match in the
February 2004 edition of SmackDown! magazine and his autobiography (published
posthumously).

Despite Guerrero's success and popularity, he was one of many wrestlers who
were frustrated at never being given a chance to be main event stars in WCW.
These frustrations came to a head when Guerrero requested that WCW President
Eric Bischoff either push his character or give him a raise for family reasons.
Bischoff responded by throwing coffee at Guerrero (In his autobiography,
Guerrero states that Bischoff accidentally knocked his coffee off the table,
and that it was a complete accident that he was hit). The wrestler, furious,
demanded Bischoff release him from his WCW contract on a live episode of WCW
Monday Nitro. Guerrero then left the company for a period of months, angry at
Bischoff for what he had done. However, Guerrero later returned to WCW, leading
to the belief that maybe Guerrero's angry speeches against Bischoff were
actually a work (Guerrero later confirmed it to be a worked shoot). Guerrero
would later rebut this on WWE's DVD Monday Night War claiming that he tried to
put personal differences aside for the good of the company, yet found himself
angry and outraged once more because of Bischoff's continued refusal to elevate
Guerrero and other similar wrestlers.

Guerrero responded to Bischoff's actions by forming the Latino World Order (or
LWo), which was understood by the fans to be a mockery of Bischoff's New World
Order. The group was an answer to Bischoff's refusal to push Latino wrestlers
in ways they deserved. The group eventually grew to encompass almost all the
Mexican wrestlers working for WCW at the time. However, Guerrero was involved
in a serious car accident in 1999 that cut short the LWo storyline. Guerrero
survived the accident and returned to wrestling in a matter of months.

After his return, he continued to be displeased with WCW management and signed
with the WWF in 2000 along with top WCW stars Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, and
Perry Saturn.
 
Eddie Guerrero as WWF European Champion with his valet, Chyna.Guerrero and the
other WCW wrestlers debuted in the WWF on January 31, 2000 as The Radicalz,
appearing on RAW and interfering in a match including the New Age Outlaws. In
March 2000, Guerrero began pursuing the affections of Chyna, who he referred
to as his "Mamacita." Chyna initially rejected his advances, but allied with
him following WrestleMania 2000, declaring that she couldn't resist his "Latino
Heat".

Guerrero won his first WWF title by defeating another former WCW wrestler, Chris
Jericho, for the WWF European Championship with help from Chyna. He and Chyna
began a feud with Essa Rios and Lita, which culminated in a European title
defense at Backlash 2000, which was also billed as the night of Guerrero's prom
(he was said to have just earned a GED). Guerrero defeated Rios after arriving
at ringside in a 1957 Chevrolet, even wrestling in his tuxedo pants and a bow
tie. Guerrero successfully retained the title in matches against Saturn and
Malenko before finally losing the title to Saturn on July 23 at WWE Fully
Loaded.

Over the next few months, friction began to build between Guerrero and Chyna.
Chyna was upset when Guerrero pinned her to advance in the King of the Ring
tournament. On August 27, Chyna won the WWF Intercontinental Championship.
Guerrero claimed to not mind and then begged Commissioner Mick Foley to let
him take part in a title defense between Chyna and Kurt Angle, claiming he was
afraid that Angle would injure Chyna. After Angle knocked Chyna down with the
title belt, Guerrero "accidentally" pinned her while trying to revive her.

Chyna became visibly uncomfortable as Guerrero began to cheat in order to
retain his title, while Guerrero was upset that Chyna was posing for Playboy
magazine, even trying to invade the Playboy Mansion to stop the photoshoot.
Just when it appeared that Chyna would leave Guerrero, he proposed to her and
she accepted. The engagement was called off when Guerrero was caught showering
with two of The Godfather's hos claiming that "Two Mamacitas are better than
one!" Guerrero turned heel once again as a result of the incident and was later
defeated for the Intercontinental Championship by Chyna's friend Billy Gunn.

The Radicalz reunited in late 2000, assisting Triple H in his match with "Stone
Cold" Steve Austin at Survivor Series. In early 2001, Guerrero feuded with
Test, winning the European Championship for a second time at WrestleMania
X-Seven with help from Saturn and Malenko. Guerrero eventually left the
Radicalz, siding with The Hardy Boyz and Lita. At this point, Guerrero
developed an addiction to pain medication stemming from his 1999 car accident
and in May 2001 was sent to rehabilitation. On November 9, 2001 he was arrested
for drunk driving and was subsequently released by the WWF three days later.

After overcoming his addictions, Guerrero appeared with numerous independent
promotions, including World Wrestling All-Stars, IWA Mid-South, IWA Puerto
Rico, and Ring of Honor. Following a number of highly acclaimed matches, such
as his bout with Doug Williams during Frontier Wrestling Alliance's King Of
England tournament and his series of matches with CM Punk, Guerrero was
rehired by the WWF (renamed "WWE") in March 2002. When he signed, he was
committed to appearing on one more ROH and IWA Mid-South show. WWE permitted
him to fulfill the obligations, and on April 19, 2002, he wrestled CM Punk and
Colt Cabana in Dayton, Ohio. Just over a week later on April 27, Guerrero
teamed with The Amazing Red to defeat The S.A.T. at A Night of Appreciation,
an ROH show dedicated to him.

While wrestling on the independent circuit, Guerrero won the IWA Mid-South
Heavyweight Championship on March 1, 2002 in Indianapolis, Indiana, defeating
CM Punk and Rey Misterio, Jr. in a three way dance. He lost the title to Punk
on the following day in Morris, Illinois. He also held the WWA International
Cruiserweight Championship from December 8, 2001 to April 2002, when he
vacated the title.

Guerrero returned to RAW on April 1, 2002, attacking Rob Van Dam and reuniting
with Chris Benoit. On April 21 at Backlash 2002 he defeated Van Dam for the
Intercontinental Championship. He lost the belt to RVD a month later in a
ladder match on Raw. Guerrero then started a feud with Stone Cold Steve Austin,
but Austin left WWE before a match could take place. Guerrero then went on to
feud briefly with The Rock, challenging him for the Undisputed Championship
after The Rock sang a version of "La Bamba" with the words changed to insult
Guerrero.
 
Eddie and Chavo Guerrero as WWE Tag Team Champions.On August 1, 2002, Guerrero
and Benoit began to wrestle exclusively for WWE's SmackDown! brand. With Benoit
starting to focus on Kurt Angle, Guerrero aligned himself with his nephew
Chavo, forming the tag team Los Guerreros. In contrast to a previous WCW
storyline with his nephew, Chavo fully adopted his uncle's policy of "Lie,
Cheat and Steal" to win matches, and to push the new tag team vignettes were
produced, which included things such as the two finagling their way into a rich
lady's house and throwing a pool party. The duo entered the eight-team
tournament for the new WWE Tag Team Championships and began a feud with the
newly formed tag team of Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit. In one of the team's
definitive moments, Chavo told Benoit that his former friend Guerrero was
assaulted by his tag team partner Kurt Angle. Benoit ran to make the save, only
to have himself locked inside a room. Guerrero then appeared in the room and
assaulted Benoit with a steel chair. Benoit and Angle managed to overcome their
differences and eventually defeated Los Guerreros in the tournament
semi-finals. Later on, Benoit and Angle won the WWE Tag Team Championships.
Benoit and Angle then fought for a trophy for being the first WWE Tag Team
Champion. Much to Benoit's surprise, Los Guerreros helped him win the match.

Los Guerreros would then be given another shot at the WWE Tag Team titles and
the new champions, Edge and Rey Mysterio. At Survivor Series 2002, Guerrero
made Mysterio submit to The Lasso From El Paso. With this victory, Los
Guerreros began their reign as the WWE Tag Team Champions, a reign that lasted
until they were defeated by Team Angle. Los Guerreros participated at
WrestleMania XIX as contenders for the Tag Titles, along with the team of Chris
Benoit and Rhyno. Prior to Judgment Day, Chavo tore his biceps. This forced
Guerrero to look for another partner. He chose Tajiri. They won the Tag Titles
at Judgment Day in a ladder match. The following week, Guerrero and Tajiri
managed to retain their titles by cheating. In addition, they also defeated
Roddy Piper and his protegè Sean O'Haire. After Guerrero and Tajiri lost the
titles to Team Angle on July 3, 2003, Guerrero turned on Tajiri, slamming his
partner through the windshield of his low-rider truck.

In July 2003, Guerrero competed in a tournament for the WWE United States
Championship. He managed to advance to the final round, defeating Ultimo
Dragon in the process, where he would meet Chris Benoit. In this match,
Guerrero turned to his cheating tactics, hitting Benoit with the belt at one
point in the match. Guerrero tried to get Benoit in trouble by placing the
title belt on top of the unconscious Benoit. It did not work, however, since he
knocked out the ref earlier with a belt shot to the kidneys. The match ended
with interference and a Gore from Rhyno, Benoit's own partner, who was furious
at the team's failure. Guerrero himself said that this was a major point in the
character of Latino Heat, since he himself realized that the fans wanted to see
him lie, cheat and steal. Guerrero pinned Benoit and won the United States
Championship.

At SummerSlam, Guerrero retained his title by defeating Rhyno, Benoit and Tajiri
in a four way match. He turned face again by engaging in a rivalry with John
Cena. Guerrero challenged Cena to a "Latino Heat" Parking Lot Brawl Match for
the WWE United States Championship, which Guerrero won. Chavo made his return
in this match, assisting Guerrero in executing his Frog Splash on Cena. On
September 18, 2003, Los Guerreros defeated The World's Greatest Tag Team to
regain the WWE Tag Team Championships. Eddie Guerrero thus held the United
States Championship and one-half of the Tag Team Championships concurrently.

Guerrero lost the United States Championship to Big Show at No Mercy 2003 in
October after a feud which involved Guerrero poisoning the Big Show with some
laxative laced burritos and then later spraying the Big Show with a sewage
truck. Four days later, Los Guerreros would lose the WWE Tag Team Championship
to the Basham Brothers. As Los Guerreros attempted to regain the tag team
titles, things began to go downhill between Chavo and Eddie and animositybegan
to build. The two fought one another at the 2004 Royal Rumble, where
Eddie came out the winner.

As Guerrero's popularity grew, he began seeking the WWE Championship. In a
storyline, Guerrero's singles success made Chavo jealous and Chavo broke from
the team.

During the summer of 2003, Guerrero had begun driving a customized lowrider to
ringside as part of his ring entrance. Guerrero would also capitalize on his
"Lie, Cheat, and Steal" anti-hero image by brazenly using illegal tactics
behind the referee's back to win matches on occasion. He was well known for
hitting someone with a steel chair (or handing the opponent the steel chair and
then pretending to be knocked out himself, just as the referee turned around),
or using illegal weapons during the match. Despite (or possibly because of) his
immoral tactics, Guerrero continued to increase in popularity.
 
Chris Benoit and Guerrero celebrate their wins at WrestleMania XX. On February
15, 2004 Guerrero won the WWE Championship at No Way Out 2004, defeating Brock
Lesnar following interference from Goldberg. The victory made him only the
second-ever Latino WWE Champion in history (following Pedro Morales). He would
enjoy many months of success as champion, which included a win against Kurt
Angle at WrestleMania XX as well as victories over the Big Show and Rey
Mysterio. He would later lose the title to John "Bradshaw" Layfield in a Texas
Bullrope Match after Angle (who was General Manager of Smackdown at the time)
reversed the decision after Eddie Guerrero appeared to have retained the title.
At SummerSlam, Angle made Guerrero submit to the ankle lock. Guerrero then
allied himself with the Big Show, who also despised Kurt Angle for firing him
while Angle was still SmackDown! general manager.

Each week Angle and his new allies Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak began
targeting Guerrero and the Big Show. General Manager Theodore Long booked a
Survivor Series Elimination Match between a team led by Guerrero and a team led
by Kurt Angle. Guerrero's team consisted of himself, Big Show, Rey Mysterio and
Rob Van Dam. The following week, Guerrero was forced to find another member for
his team because Rey Mysterio had just been given an opportunity to regain the
WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Guerrero selected John Cena, who was feuding
with Carlito, a member of Angle's Survivor Series team. At Survivor Series,
Guerrero landed the Frog Splash on Kurt Angle for the victory.

Guerrero, along with Booker T and The Undertaker, then challenged John
"Bradshaw" Layfield for a WWE Championship rematch. Along the way, Guerrero
found a partner in Booker T. Despite losing two matches in a row as a tag team,
Guerrero and Booker managed to get along. At Armageddon, Guerrero and Booker
worked as a unit, taking down both Bradshaw and Undertaker. However, during the
match, the two broke away from the team and made it clear that it was every man
for themselves. Guerrero would then be taken out by The Undertaker while
Bradshaw pinned Booker following the Clothesline From Hell. Afterwards,
Guerrero and Booker briefly and unsuccessfully attempted to win the WWE Tag
Team Championships.

On February 20, 2005, Guerrero once again became a tag team champion, this time
with long time friend and sometimes rival Rey Mysterio when they defeated the
Basham Brothers at No Way Out 2005 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Many expected the new champions to defend their titles at WrestleMania 21, but
after encouragement from Chavo, instead Guerrero challenged Rey to a one-on-one
match so they could "bring the house down." The two wrestled a match at
WrestleMania with Mysterio getting the win. Although visibly frustrated,
Guerrero congratulated his partner. After several mishaps in the weeks
following WrestleMania, the growing tension between Guerrero and Mysterio
finally erupted when they lost their tag titles to new team MNM on the April 21
episode of SmackDown! Although they received a match to regain the titles,
Guerrero turned heel once again by abandoning his partner, whom he had dubbed
"his family" earlier in the show.

 
Eddie Guerrero in 2005.Guerrero then adopted a new, somewhat sociopathic
gimmick. During this time, he also stopped driving his low-riders down the ring
and walked to the ring with a frown on his face, and reverted to using the Lasso
from El Paso as his finishing move. At the end of one episode of SmackDown!, he
viciously and emotionlessly beat up his former tag team partner, Rey Mysterio,
leaving him bruised and bloody after suplexing him onto a set of steel steps.
At Judgment Day 2005 on May 22, Guerrero lost to Mysterio by disqualification
after hitting Mysterio with a chair.

Several weeks after the match at Judgment Day, Guerrero threatened to reveal a
secret about Rey and his son Dominik. The storyline grew to involve the
families of both men, with both sides pleading for Guerrero not to reveal the
secret. Rey defeated Guerrero again at The Great American Bash 2005, a match
with a stipulation that if Guerrero lost, he would not tell the secret. Yet
Guerrero revealed the secret anyway on the following episode of SmackDown!
telling Dominik §and the audience that Guerrero was his real father. The
following weeks had Guerrero revealing the details of the secret in a series of
what he called "Eddie's Bedtime Stories". He claimed that he had a child out of
wedlock (Dominik) while his marriage was going through hard times. He claimed
he then allowed Mysterio and his wife, who were "having trouble conceiving", to
adopt the child as their own.

At SummerSlam 2005, Guerrero lost a ladder match over Dominik's custody to
Mysterio. Their emotional feud ended at the premiere of Friday Night
SmackDown!, where Guerrero finally gained a victory over Mysterio in a steel
cage match.

Following his feud with Rey Mysterio, Guerrero was named number one contender
to the World Heavyweight Championship and given a title match with Batista at
No Mercy 2005 on October 9, 2005. Despite this, Guerrero quickly proclaimed
himself to be Batista's friend. However, Batista was wary of Guerrero and a
series of matches with MNM only supported his suspicions, as Guerrero appeared
to have reverted to his cheating ways. In response to Batista's suspicions,
Guerrero helped Batista win a match against his tag team partners, John 
"Bradshaw" Layfield and Christian.

Batista defeated Guerrero at No Mercy to retain the World Heavyweight
Championship. During the match, Guerrero struggled with a decision about
whether or not to use a steel chair to secure the victory, eventually opting
not to use it and losing as a result. Though the two demonstrated mutual
respect after the match, Guerrero seemed displeased by the loss. Guerrero would
tell Batista that he realized how low he had sunk since being WWE Champion in
2004, having attacked his best friend Rey Mysterio. Guerrero told him that
Batista shaking his hand at No Mercy had returned his respect to him.

On the November 11, 2005 edition of Friday Night SmackDown!, Eddie Guerrero
wrestled what turned out to be the final match of his life, a victory by
disqualification using his trademark cheating tactics over Ken Kennedy. This
was a Survivor Series qualifying match which would have put Guerrero on the
SmackDown! team of a brand-war Survivor Series match.

On November 13, 2005, Guerrero was found dead in his hotel room in
Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the Marriott City Center Hotel by his nephew, Chavo.
He was 38 years old. Several hours later, WWE.com released the following 
nnouncement:

"WWE is deeply saddened by the news that Eddie Guerrero has passed away. He was
found dead this morning in his hotel room in Minneapolis. Eddie is survived by
his wife Vickie and daughters Shaul, 14, Sherilyn, 9, and Kaylie Marie, 3." 
The same day, WWE held a press conference with a speech from his nephew Chavo,
who spoke of Guerrero's four years of sobriety that would have come on November
15, 2005. Chavo adamantly defended his uncle, saying he had defeated his
"personal demons." WWE Chairman Vince McMahon declined to speculate on the
causes of Guerrero's death, and both men said that Guerrero would have "wanted
the show to go on."

An autopsy revealed that Guerrero died as a result of acute heart failure,
caused by undiagnosed arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease and enlargement
of the heart as a result of prior anabolic steroid abuse. Although Guerrero
had not taken alcohol or illicit drugs for nearly four years, his past excesses
contributed to his heart failure. At the time of his death, he had recently
used narcotic painkillers.

Guerrero's wife Vickie said that he had been lethargic and unwell in the week
preceding his death, but that this had been attributed to the stress of
continuously traveling and performing. She added that the doctors had told her
that Guerrero's blood vessels had shriveled and weakened owing to undiagnosed
heart disease, and that he had simply dropped into a deep sleep.

On the November 30, 2005 edition of WWE Byte This!, Chavo Guerrero, Jr. said
that Guerrero had been working very hard and was at peak physical fitness as a
result, doing cardiovascular and weight training exercises every day. There had
been no symptoms or cause for concern. Guerrero, Jr. noted that, while many
people abuse drugs for over ten years with no ill effects, Guerrero, despite
having ceased to abuse drugs four years earlier, had suffered heart
complications that were not detected in time to prevent his death.
 
On the day of his death, Guerrero was set to face Batista and Randy Orton in a
triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship on the November 13
taping of Friday Night SmackDown! (which would have aired on November 18).
Stephanie McMahon hinted, and other sources confirmed, that Guerrero had been
scheduled to defeat Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship, which would
have begun Guerrero's first reign as World Heavyweight Champion.

The episodes of RAW on November 14, 2005, and Friday Night SmackDown! on
November 18, 2005, each aired as a tribute to Eddie Guerrero. No WWE employees
were compelled to perform, although several matches took place, including one
featuring Chavo. RAW started off with all the superstars and several personnel
on stage, as Vince McMahon addressed the live crowd. A video was then shown
featuring many clips of Guerrero in and out of the ring to "Hurt" as performed
by Johnny Cash. A similar video was shown on Friday Night SmackDown to "Here
Without You" by 3 Doors Down. These shows were similar in format to the RAW is
Owen special edition of RAW, which paid tribute to the late Owen Hart, and the
SmackDown! special in Houston, Texas two days after the September 11, 2001
attacks. In addition to the RAW and SmackDown! tribute shows, Total Nonstop
Action Wrestling dedicated the pay-per-view TNA Genesis (which aired the
evening of his passing) to Guerrero, while Ring of Honor named their next show
"Night of Tribute".

Eddie Guerrero's funeral took place on November 17, 2005 in Phoenix, Arizona
at Green Acres Cemetery. The private service was performed by retired wrestler
"Superstar" Billy Graham. Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, John
"Bradshaw" Layfield, Vince McMahon, Tom Prichard, all of Guerrero's brothers,
one of his sisters, Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and Valerie Coleman Graham all spoke
at the funeral. Dozens of wrestlers and wrestling personalities were also in
attendance.

As a direct response to Guerrero's death, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon announced
the implementation of drug testing for WWE wrestlers, which began in March
2006. Guerrero was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 1, 2006 by Chris
Benoit, Rey Mysterio, and his nephew Chavo Guerrero in Chicago, Illinois on the
night before WrestleMania 22. His widow, Vickie, accepted the honor.

6.0 Game review
---------------

This is mi personal review for this game. I hope it can help you to decide if
to buy it or not. You can find this review on Gamefaqs.com, the first free
source of faqs all over the web.

Time to walk the ring one more time!

Here I am, to talk about another game about the WWE universe. But is that a
good game? On a first look this game can be taken as an update of his
predecessor, Smackdown! vs RAW, but it offers more on every aspect, like
gameplay and value that you will like it. Keep reading, if you want to know
more.

Graphics: 9/10

Every game they improve the graphic. Smackdown! vs RAW 2006 is no exception,
they scan the wrestler faces, and you can see the results with your own eyes.
The only thing I don't like, it's a problem I see every WWE game. I am talking
about the "create a wrestler" section.

I know that a Playstation 2 has some power limits, but I hate when I see my
creation almost perfect, and when it goes to ring is graphically downgraded to
spare console power. It's simply frustrating (if you have a lot of created
wrestlers like me.)

But the arenas, detailed, well done... but they looks exactly like the last
year arenas.

Another good addition to the graphic side are the entrances, this year they are
very well detailed, and almost all of them are marvellous reproductions of real
WWE superstars entrances. With some exceptions, of course (Batista and others).

The create an entrance section this year gives you more tools to prepare a
better entrance, allowing you to choose lights, pyros and moves for every
section of the stadium. That is a very good thing, but when I prepared my first
entrance, it took almost one hour to check every single camera position!

Sound: 10/10

This time you will hear a lot of voices from your favourite wrestlers, music
are very good, and entrance music are reproduced very well, in an almost
perfect way. This time is a professional work that won't disappoint you in any
way.

Unfortunately the commentary can't be described as above. It will give you a
bad feeling of repetition, hearing all the times you do a finishing move the
same words and phrases over and over again.

Controls: 9/10

Controls are well distributed on the gamepad, and they work fast. The only
thing I never liked is the targeting system. Almost every time I try to target
a different opponent I target my own partner, or the referee or even the wrong
enemy.

In a single match it's not a real problem, but on multi-opponent matches, like
the Royal Rumble, it's a real pain.

Gameplay: 8/10

No doubt that Smackdown! vs RAW 2006 is a really great game. So, why I gave
only 8 points on gameplay? It's sad to say that, but... if you play that game
alone, it's not too fun. The core of the entire game, the season, it's made by
only a few episodes. You will play two episodes (not chosen randomly), the
Royal Rumble episode, and then the Wrestlemania Episode (and not for all
wrestlers, some of them won't be available for season play.)

No more, no less. There are no plots like title defence or parties, like Here
Comes the Pain (the best season of all WWE games). When I played the game for
the first time I was really disappointed of that, and I think it will be the
same for you.

The roster is pretty good, a huge selection of WWE superstars and divas like
Trish Stratus, the Undertaker, Batista and John Cena.

There is also a legend selection that includes Andre the Giant, three (yes,
three) almost identical version of the legendary Hulk Hogan, and the usual
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin and the Rock.

I was disappointed to have three different version of the same wrestler, I
think it's a waste of space than can be used for other wrestlers and legends.

Another bad thing it's the idea to put Jake "the Snake" Roberts in the game,
but you have to connect your PS2 with a PSP with him unlocked in that, then
transfer it to your PS2.

Sincerely, I find all this stuff nothing more than a marketing manoeuvre to
promote the PSP. 

Of course, if you have the old PS2 (not the slim version), you can't connect
with a PSP, and it's very difficult you will ever see Jake Roberts on your
machine.

If you play this game with at least a friend... this changes a lot. I have
played with a multi-tap, and four friends, and I can assure you that I had the
time of my life! We shouted, insulted each other... we really enjoyed that.

Regarding the multiplayer option, I have the old PS2, and I can't play online,
so I don't know how is this game online, but a lot of people said me that is
slowed down. The online play is hosted on a Gamespy server, and it seems that 
it's not doing a very good job. 

Sometimes after a match the game will freeze up. Another problem is that
sometimes your wins or losses won't even count for some reason or bugs.

I am sorry, but I don't play online, so I don't have more details for you.
The challenges are back in this game again, and add something more to the
length of the game, giving you something more to do in this game. They will
also allow you to unlock special bonus, like furniture for your room, and
increase the durability of the game quite a lot.

There is also a new season type, called General mode. In that season you can
arrange your brand by yourself, creating a roster, deciding all the matches
every week. You decide your marketing strategies, creating feuds and
interfering with the other show.

The only thing I don't like is that you can't decide the match results by
yourself, so, after all you don't have all the control on the brand you will
have as a real General Manager.

This mode has potential, and a lot of it, but it's not really entertaining as
it sound, but, after all, it's the first year that this new game mode is
implemented, I am sure it will be in future WWE games, and will became more and
more fun than now.

Conclusions: 9/10

If you want to play this game alone, I suggest you Here Comes the Pain or
Smackdown! vs RAW. 

But, if you will play this game with some friends, it will give you one of the
most entertaining experience of your life, for you and all your friends. If you
are a fan of the WWE games then you should absolutely try give game, it
absolutely worth the effort.
