Product Description

Review

It took a couple of months, but the Dreamcast finally has a wrestling game. But before you run out and buy a copy of WWF Attitude, there's really some things you must know about it. This game was produced on a very tight deadline. You see, Acclaim will lose its license to produce and sell WWF games on November 15. That means the company had to pump out this Dreamcast version as quickly as possible, because once 11/15 hits, no more copies can be manufactured. So the Dreamcast version is, essentially, a cleaned-up clone of the PlayStation version. The improvements are mostly limited to graphics (better textures) and sound (higher fidelity). Therefore, if you already own one of the other two versions of Attitude, and you are relatively happy with the version you have, you can pretty much sit this one out.

The roster in WWF Attitude was reasonably current when the game was originally released on the PlayStation and the N64 back in August. Now, the lack of superstars like the Big Show, Chris Jericho, and the Dudley Boys really make the game feel much more dated. However, one plus is that D-Generation X has gotten back together recently, so at least that aspect of the game is correct.

The game is reasonably good for a wrestling game, which is to say it has just about as many weird, quirky collision problems and "which guy am I facing" issues as the next game. The game shies away from much of the rampant button-mashing, which plagues other wrestling games, in favor of a more fighting-game-like approach. This means you'll be doing a lot of "left, right, down, button" type of moves instead of just grappling, hitting a button and a direction, and watching the fireworks. Momentum also comes into play here, which makes it easier to pull off larger, grapple-based moves on your opponents if you soften him up with a few punches and kicks first. The game also has a few reversals here and there, so it's important to vary your method of attack, especially against experienced players.

There are also a whole lot of modes in the game, most of which are slight variations on the same type of match. You can throw down in standard versus matches, two-on-one fights, three-on-one matches, tornado bouts, and tag-team contests, among others. There are also modes based on some of the WWF's more famous Pay-Per-View matches, like the Royal Rumble and the Survivor Series. The Rumble pits you against 29 other wrestlers in an over-the-top-rope brawl. In the real thing, a new wrestler hits the ring one at a time, after a set interval, though here the number of simultaneous wrestlers never gets higher than four. There's a slight pause while a new wrestler enters the ring, but it's nothing too serious. Add to that various match conditions, like hard-core matches or first blood, and you have enough options to keep you creating your own pay-per-views for months.

Graphically, WWF Attitude is a mixed bag. On one hand, it looks much better than the N64 and PlayStation versions of the game. It sports much better textures (though many of the wrestler faces still look pretty bad), a cleaner-looking crowd, and cooler effects. But on the other hand, as a Dreamcast game, it easily could have been better. The wrestler models are still on the blocky side, and the animation looks pretty choppy. The sound has been greatly improved from a fidelity standpoint, but the commentary still manages to sound a little choppy from time to time. Also, the commentary is a little too generic, staying away from calling out specific moves and only occasionally calling the wrestlers by name.

With a few more months, this game could have probably turned out a lot better. But since the game is the very definition of the word "rushed," it's merely a rehash of the older versions of the game. If you didn't buy the PlayStation or N64 version of Attitude in hopes that the DC version would beat them, then you're getting a bittersweet victory. Yes, this is the best version of WWF Attitude, but no, it doesn't live up to the potential of the license or the hardware, and it's really a shame that Acclaim has to end its longtime relationship with the WWF on such a sour note. Rent this one first before making your decision. --Jeff Gerstmann

This is the most horribly game I've seen! Dreamcast is capable of great graphics and this game has the WORST graphics I've seen. The opening sequence is great and gives you great hopes. But once the game starts, you're in for a letdown. All of the graphics are cheezy. This is a very disappointing game. Don't waste your money.

This game was released way to early in my opinion. This is the PSX version with better sound. Acclaim lost it's WWF license on Nov 15th and had to get this game out by then to score the $$$. It shows. The introductions are cool but most moves require a 3 joystick + 2 button combo. C'mon! This isn't Mortal Kombat, it's wrestling. I wish this was more like the WCW/NWO Revenge for the N64.

I'm a big WWF fan, and also a Dreamcast owner. When I popped this into my DC, my only reaction was "Dammit, this sucks!" Before I even get into the graphics (yuck), let me first state that the roster of wrestlers is only accurate as of November 1998. Absent are Y2J, Dudleys, Big Show, Rikishi, and Tazz; present are Goldust and Dr. Death - Enough said. To explain the graphics is a tough one - just picture the PlayStation version with anti-aliased effects and rope texture. Other changes are limited to slightly better sound and a marginally enhanced resolution setting. The control and collison detection are also still terrible. I see no reason anyone would want to pick up this game, as it's a rushed port with an outdated roster and graphics that didn't even do the PSX justice. Even if you're a DC owner in need of a WWF game, don't get it - wait for THQ's forthcoming WWF offering.

This game is probably the biggest disappointment I've ever had with a video game. The game is exactly like the PSX version which was also horrible. The moves are very difficult to get off. You can't sit around with friends who haven't played it and have them enjoy it because its that difficult. Finishing moves are impossible. The graphics for the Dreamcast level are subpar. I'm glad thq is doing the next WWF game. Hopefully they will make one for Dreamcast because this one doesn't cut it. I traded mine in for 20 bucks a week after i bought. Pass on this one.

If your expecting good graphics, then your in for a treat. If your expecting good gameplay, then go play the N64 version. Although the graphics are dreamcast expectable, the gameplay cannot match up to the other versions released for N64 and other systems. If you are a die hard wrestling fan, you will be somewhat pleased, but, since the moves are somewhat complicated, if you are not GungHo wrestling, you will not enjoy this game to much. It is much more complicated then the N64 version.

Horrible game. The roster is so old it looks like a WCW game. The gameplay is impossible, all you do is stand there kicking and punching. The only thing I liked was the intro when they do the entire Raw Is War theme song; But I can watch that on Monday night. Don't even waste your money with this game. If you have PSX or N64, pickup Smackdown and Wrestlemania 2000, they shame this game.

The hit detection is awful, the graphics would be mediocre even if they were on playstaion, and the controls are impossible. It takes like a ten button combo to pull off the simplist moves.The only thing that saves the game from being one star is that the create-a-wrestler option is fun. I found myself making wrestlers and not even wanting to use them. This game is bad. bad, bad, bad.
