Reception[change | change source]

IGN rated the game a 8.9 out of 10 and said "Smackdown 2, if it's the last wrestling game on the PlayStation (which is likely), is a fine high note to go out on - no WWF fan is liable to be disappointed by what they get when they pick it up, as they undoubtedly will.”[3]

GameSpot gave the game a 8.9 out of 10 and stated "While it isn't that much different from the last SmackDown!, SmackDown! 2 makes enough incremental changes and upgrades to be significant in its own right."[4]
