WWE Smackdown! Here Comes the Pain (or HCTP) is the fifth installment of the Smackdown! series of video games and the sequel to WWE Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth. It is considered by many to be the best game of the SmackDown vs. Raw series. It was succeeded by WWE Smackdown vs. Raw.

Features Edit

HCTP is considered a favorite by many (whether it is for improved graphics/sound/gameplay/presentation). Secondly, this game is the only game in the series not to include commentary. Thirdly, it is the only game in the series to have won a Player's Choice Award. Fourth, HCTP boasts one of the largest wrestler roster of any Smackdown game released to date, featuring 65 Superstars and Divas from around the 2002-2003 season (if one includes the 11 WWE/F Legends that debuted in the game), with an additional 32 Create A Wrestler slots that would boost the available roster of characters to about 97 total wrestlers for players to utilize. Moreover, the game included 21 different match setups.

Another bonus is that all of the Create A Wrestler parts were available from the word "go" (in Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth, players prgressed through Season Mode to unlock CAW parts). Furthermore, as mentioned above, HCTP included (for the first time in the series) eleven Legends from the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

Other Notables Edit

  • Revamped grapple system (pressing grapple button+directional button to initiate, then grapple+directional button to do actual move)
  • New body damage meter, which measure damge done to different parts of wrestler's body
  • Last appearance of Create An Animation/Taunt mode.
