Sweat, heart, diligence, and countless hours of misused time!
That perfectly describes what my WWF gaming experience is
like. Us die hard wrestling fans put are heart and souls into every
lockup. Feed off of the electricity of the fans. We even find
humor in senseless violence! And to tell you the truth who would
have it any other way? Well as long as games like Attitude are
around it won't be hard to feed the narcissistic rage you have for no
apparent reason at all. So before you elapse into a comatose state of
biceps, boards, and steel chairs, keep an eye open to my thoughts. If
you smellla what the J-Dogg is cooookin!
Graphics: 6 out of 10
We all agree that Warzone set the standards for all the modern graphical
genius of wrestling games today. But the sad thing is it's processor
didn't. The graphic advancements are almost to subtle for even a
hardcore veteran to decipher. (Almost of course.) Really outside of the
improved realism of the ring ropes, and a few new specific wrestler
intros the game doesn't boast anything ground breaking in this category.
Though I must add that the Rock's face is a real let down. Come on
Acclaim he looks like he was molested by a steam roller!
Music and Sound: 8 out of 10
First let me say the color commentators are right on key. The King
Jerry Lawler and Shane Macmahon are awesomely depicted in this
game. There loud, rude, and udderly hysterical! The way that they
ramble on adds a double dose of the interaction, realism, and humor
that Good Ol' JR and Vinnie Mac brought to Warzone. If the commentation
isn't enough to make your pants go wet then occausinally heed what the
arrogant brawlers say before the opening of the match. You are stronger
willed than I if you can maintain a gentle composure listening to Dr.
Death's opening statements. Ok, so some of the dialogue is a little rough
around the edges, but thats life deal with it.
Game Challenge: 9 out of 10
Some of you out there thought Warzone's career mode (If you can
call it that.) Was too easy for the deeply involved grappler. So look now
what you've done! Attitudes career mode is long, to long if you ask me, but
now at least all the fun of winning the gold isn't meant to be collected in
one sitting. You'll fight your way though three belts. The European first,
then Intercontineintal, and finally the ultimate prized World belt. Plus
defending each one in the middle. Very tedious indeed matey's but
something got to shape men out of us, right? (Or Women?)
Game Play-Fun: 9 out of 10
With so many mode of play how can it not score high! Though it has
a array of single player modes the real numbers score in with multi
player madness. You can have hoards of fun customizing anything from
the wrestlers clothing to the arena he fights in. The possiablities are
endless, and with a few friends so is the fun.
Rumble Pak: 5 out of 10
Make a long story short the Rumble Pak did nothing for me. But I'm a
devote fan so I might be more quick to judge than you. The whole feel
of the game play was destroyed by the RP. Tip, if your looking for long
term play don't use a Rumble Pack!!!
It can get really difficult in the career mode. The AI can play a few
tricks on you. If you want to avoid the frustration all together just
don't play the career. Believe it or not this game is worth purchasing
for the multi player game modes alone.
Replayability: 10 out of 10
You can always pop this baby in on a rainy day! It;s a boredom exterminator,
and like mentioned above the possabilties are endless! And my apologies
for not mentioning the much IMPROVED Create a Wrestler mode, it's sweeeeet!
Game Value: 10 out of 10
It's a older alternative to the new No Mercy, Smackdown franchises.
But come on it's only 19.95 at Wal-Mart, who can beat that!
Overall: 7.5 out of 10
