WCW vs NWO: World Tour
Reviewed by Will Shaw
Let me start out by saying that this game ROCKS!!! I'm a big wrestling
fan and I just love this game. All N64 players love it too. It's a fantastic
game, with good graphics, excellent control, and unbelievable realism.
Graphics 95 out of 100
This game has fantastic graphics. Each character has his own taunts,
own attributes, and the best of all, they have their own faces and body
graphics like their real-life counterpart. These graphics are very realistic
looking. You can even see their fingers clench and open at times. They all
have their same heights like in real life. You can even see their muscles!
The only downside to it is that the crowd looks like flat, people made
Music and Sound 99 out of 100
Though this game doesn't have the theme music for every wrestler, it
does have excellent music during gameplay. It's just perfect for the
fighting. And the sound is really good. Each person has their own grunts,
reactions, and noises when they taunt. When you run on the ring, you can
hear the feat moving. When you get slammed onto the mat, you hear a cool
thump. Even the crowd has good boo's and cheers.
Game Challenge 90 out of 100
I'd say that this game was simple. You have 3 settings, easy, normal,
and hard. Both easy and normal are fairly simple. Hard is very cheap,
they always reverse everything, and you get defeated easily. Normal
is very fun to play on. The whole game is fairly simple. A bad part about
this is that when you beat everything and get to WWW, you have to fight
all the characters in the game, thus taking a long time. Otherwise it's an
easy, almost too easy game.
Game Play-Fun 100 out of 100
WCW vs NWO has one of the best replay values of all the games out.
Multi-player matches are really fun. There are so many characters,
lots of rules that you can change, and moves to find out. It's very
entertaining to see a new, cool move. All the characters have the
real taunts, and trademark moves. Grabbing chairs, jumping from top
ropes, and blooding someone is so cool. It's game is so fun.
Rumble Pak 98 out of 100
The Rumble Pak works great with this game. It rumbles every time
you get plumed to the ground, run into someone, or anything. It adds
a great touch to the game, to make you feel like your actually fighting someone.
Like I have said, the most frustrating thing about this game is on hard
mode. Every move you do is either blocked or reversed. Then they beat
you down and you lose. It is possible, but very frustrating to beat the
whole game on hard.
Replayability 100 out of 100
The replay value is very good. Invite some friends over and you can start
a little tournament or something. It's a great game for parties or something.
It hardly ever gets boring because different things happen all the time.
Game Value 100 out of 100
If I had to, I'd pay for this game all over again. All my friends have bought
it, and it's defiantly worth the price.
Overall 98 out of 100
My conclusion is that this game is one of the best. It's a lot better than
the Playstation version. It has it all, and I'm not just saying that. I really
suggest that you buy this game. Keep your fingers crossed for WCW: Nitro
coming out for the N64. Until then, have fun with this one!!
