According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence 

Parents should be aware that this is a WWF licensed product and for parents who have been living in a cave and think WWF stands for World Wildlife Fund rather than World Wrestling Federation, you can expect the same level of gratuitous low-brow violence, sexism, exploitation that enters into millions of homes on a weekly basis. The content in the videogame isn't as raw as in live-venues, but it still similar.

For long-time fans of the Smackdown series, I can't wholeheartedly recommend Just Bring It. The Create-A-Wrestler feature has an unbelievable amount of depth, but without an engaging single-player story mode, it all feels wasted. There just isnt enough good stuff here.

For pro-wrestling fans that are new to the series and must add a wrestling title to their PlayStation 2 collection, there isn't much competition out there and you can't really go wrong with Just Bring It since its game engine is a proven one.

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.

Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
