WRESTLING VIDEO GAMES
by Acclaim (for PlayStation)
Description: Features are Career mode- wrestle your way up from house shows to Wrestlemania. All-new Create-a-Wrestler options--customize move sets and costumes. Over 40 WWF superstars like The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and The Undertaker. Over 20 game modes including Survivor Series, Triple Threat and King of the Ring.
Rating: If you want to get a true classic and original game that is both easy to use and with magnificent features, don't get this. Get Smackdown 1 or 2. I give this game 4 out of 10 for crappy features, annoying controls and being just plain boring.

Oh, where to begin...This was the absolute cornerstone for what games are today, This is one of my Favorite Wrestling games. This game was the Third Wrestling game released for PSX ( 1 was WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game, 2 was WWF Warzone) This game, is amazing, I still play it a whole lot.
The First thing I noticed was that you can pick what moves you want for your wrestler (Not being able to in Warzone) It had a much larger create a wrestler mode, with more costumes, faces, hair, Pants, Etc. I like how your entire move set can just be other wrestlers Finishers.
Another thing which is great is the sheer amount of wrestlers that you start off with, plus they talk, when they taunt, which is just cool. It's pretty classy, Though the voices aren't great, and the taunts are limited. It's still pretty impressive.
Incredibly slow loading times, but I don't mind it, this game was the first to actually have theme music for wrestlers, and Moves, and Pyro, I mean...Pyro!! That's awesome, and you get to actually unlock wrestlers, and more costumes. You get all the movesets at the start, which is a plus.
This game is a must have for any collector. I love it.

Description: WWF Attitude was dedicated to the late Owen Hart who had passed away during the making of this game. The modes that are in this game are pretty cool. There is a Career Mode where you start from a no name to one of the biggest stars in the game. You can also create wrestlers customizing completely from their appearance, to their entrance, and even to their own move list. There are also voice overs which are pretty funny and make the game's replay value pretty high.
Rating: There were better games out at the time this game came out. (Like Smackdown!) But it is still a pretty decent game. There weren't many "specialty" matches that you could choose from and made the game pretty repetitive. Also the controls are difficult, but aren't worth losing control and becoming a button masher. I give this game a 7 out of 10 for my reasons above. Still the Positives out weigh the negatives, so it's still a good game in my book.
