Product Description

Product Description

WCW vs. the World takes on the wrestling genre, but with an interesting twist. The game is less about official licenses, and more about the large numbers of wrestlers, moves, and options. Only nine actual WCW (World Championship Wrestling) wrestlers are in the game, with the emphasis drawing from six wrestling federations from around the world.

Amazon.com

Like their real-life counterpart, wrestling video games have vaulted off the top ropes of the ring and right into our living rooms. You can't channel surf for too long without running into a wrestling show, just as you won't leave a video game retailer's site without seeing a few wrestling titles.

WCW vs. the World takes on the wrestling genre, but with an interesting twist. The game is less about official licenses, and more about the large numbers of wrestlers, moves, and options. Only nine actual WCW (World Championship Wrestling) wrestlers are in the game, with the emphasis drawing from six wrestling federations from around the world.

The gameplay is rewarding, but requires effort. Individual matches last rather long, so you won't see many 30-second bouts. It's not the best wrestling game available, but the many options (including the cool "create a belt" feature) and sheer number of wrestlers make up for its shortcomings. --Sajed Ahmed

Pros:

  • Dozens of moves, many different wrestlers
  • Above average graphics and better animation than most wrestling games
  • Variety of options will occupy you for some time
Cons:
  • Bland soundtrack
  • Lacks the quirky fun factor of hidden weapons, special matches, etc.
  • A lot of wrestlers, but who are these guys?

WCW vs. the World is one heck of a fun wrestling game, unlike the other WCW games this one has different moves for all the wrestlers, which is good! If ya like WCW you'll purchase this game no questions asked, it's a great party game play 8 players, or even create your own WCW Belts and defend them against friends !!!

WCW vs. The World rocks. Sure you can't go backstage but you can go outside the ring. One thing I really liked about WCW vs. The World is that Reversals are easy to do. I once the CPU reversted and than I reversed his move and than he reversated my move again. I'd buy it right away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst WCW Game Ever Made June 10, 2014
I don't get why so many people rate this a high game. There's nothing special about it at all. I got this game awhile back and thought it was pretty lame so the game went into retirement, until I decided to pull it out for the first time in many many years and play it and my thoughts remain the same.

For WCW's first video game made during the Monday Night Wars, this was pretty terrible. For starters, this is more of an arcade type of video game then a game you'd expect. The game came out in 1997, yet looks and feels like it was made in 1990, transferred to Playstation discs and called a video game.

WCW vs The World was developed and published by Japanese companies, Asmik Ace Entertainment and The Man Breeze, which would probably explain why there are only 13 WCW wrestlers in the game, while the rest of the roster is fictional Japanese wrestlers. That's right folks. Only 13 WCW wrestlers, while the rest are made-up Japanese wrestlers that have never even remotely been heard of. It's kind of a waste of a game if you're not going to include all of the WCW roster and have a bunch of created wrestlers take up space.

The only arenas you can play in are house show like arenas. There's a WCW house show like arena and the rest are Japanese arenas. To add on to the Japanese theme in this game, there's cheesy music that loops throughout the matches that sounds like it would've been acceptable in a 1980s Japanese action movie. There are 7 different modes you can play in this game that are: League Challenge, Best of Seven, Exhibition Match, Elimination Match, Tournament, League Match, and Double Title Match.

It goes without saying that the move-sets in this game are also very limited.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better ones out there April 25, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
You wouldnt expect it, but this game is good for all the wrong reasons. If you were to buy this, you wouldnt think the best wrestlers would be the the guys you never heard of right? By far the best finishing move in the game is called "The Alcapulco" by some guy whos name I cant remember. Its the most devastating move ive ever seen in wrestling, if he does this in real life to other people, I would suspect these people often become paralyzed.
I will attempt to describe the move, it starts off as a regular suplex, but once he has the guy verticle in the air, he releases him and comes down into a piledriver. So basicaly your being dropped directly on your head from 6+ ft in the air. A regular piledriver is like 2 ft and you have almost no momentum. Same with a tombstone piledriver. This tops both by alot.
Besides this one move, the game is average overall, not great, not bad. But this one thing made it better than average for me, worth a look in my opinion.

If World Tour is the infant form of Wrestlemania 2000 then this is the fetal form. I view this is a simplified version of World Tour. Great moves in this game that haven't been seen in any wrestling game since! Control is a bit tricky......because back then the engine(GOD BLESS THE ENGINE! ) was just taking its first itty bitty baby steps and was not yet perfected(it still isn't but it's trying!). Aaah memories.....when I first pulled off the Scorpion Death drop I almost wet my pants....I instantly fell in love with this engine.....I wish I could get my hands on that japanese game that first used the engine. I don't know the name of it but it must be the "zygote form" of Wrestlemania 2000. The so called "Beta version" of the engine...... anyway you can see I love this engine LOL. I hope it stays around forever and keeps getting better!
