Wrestling's come a long way since the days when ITV stopped showing it on Saturday afternoons, it's very big news at the moment. You can't open your new copy of Look-in without being bombarded by pictures of big men in glitzy outfits. They've all got suntans, teeth, loads of money and (probably) American accents. The recent wrestling game explosion, started with Ocean's WWF licence and is bought up to date with this offering from Zeppelin, Alternative's Popeye 3 and the Codies' imminent wrestling game that'll be part of their Super Sports Challenge compilation.
Despite a few very minor moans Tag Team Wrestling is an enjoyable crush 'em up! It has lots of built in moves and playability and plenty of competition and high brow action. It's not sponsored by any big international wrestling organisations but maybe it should be because it's well worth a not too bone-breaking £3.99.
There's been so many wrestling games that a game needs to be great to make the mark. This one doesn't come close.
And while the general presentation is good the graphics during the bouts are pretty grim. The sprites in particular are hopeless and don't look anything like their mug shots. Played against the computer, Tag Team's pretty grim. But in two-player mode, when you and a mate both have to struggle with the control system, at least the odds are evened up a bit.
Bleurgh! Minimal moves, dire graphics, need I say more... okay then - appalling sound, befuddling collision detection and animation of low quality. It's very bad, It's very bad, It's very bad, very very bad...
A poor man’s WWF Rampage, and we gave that 18 percent. The only good thing you can say is that (while WWF IS marginally better) you would only be wasting eight quid if you bought this one.
