WWE SmackDown 08 - Extreme Rules match

Sept 13, 2007

If you've played a fair bit of the earlier WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW games, you'd know that nothing's more satisfying than clocking your opponent over the head with a chair,pounding his face in with a sledgehammeror chucking his lifeless ass through a table. Sure, you could fight a (*yawn*) fair fight, but usingitems from a hardware store to get the win appealsto your inner extremist.

Recognizing how awesome hardcorewrestling is,WWE SmackDown 08 features the brand-new ECW Extreme Rules Match - the new screens of which can befound here (opens in new tab). For the first time ever,you can compete in the violent, no holds barred environment that put ECW on the map (and under the WWE's acquisition). Under Extreme Rules, absolutely anything goes, asyou cannow choose which weapons to take into battle right from the Vs. Screen, something the previous games lacked in the olderWeapons match mode.

Virtually every weapon in the game is available for selection so that players can customize each match to fulfill even their most sadistic needs. Perennial favorites like the Steel Chair, Crutch and Sledgehammer are represented, not to mention several ECW-exclusive weapons being thrown into the mix, such as the Singapore Cane or Acoustic Guitar.
