A great damn game that has all of the atmosphere and excitement of the WWF! It's a shame that this is Acclaim studios last WWF game but they are working on others... As for Attitude, don't hesitate to pick this funky number up. Because come November it's going to become hard to track down thanks to the legal harang of licenses! Attitude is a shitload of fun and a barrel of laughs as it takes itself in the same vein as the entertainment it represents!
Game industry News (GiN)
Wrestling fans will think they've died and gone to Heaven (or at least Debra's bedroom) with this game, but I would advise non-wrestling fans against buying it. Fans of regular sports games just won't appreciate the level of detail and will come away with nowhere near as good of a gaming experience.
Attitude was so hyped that when it finally came out we kind of felt a sense of relief and detachment since so much about this game had been covered already. The end result though, is quite a game. The sound of Attitude is going to be hard to beat. Both WCW Mayhem and Wrestlemania 2000 are going to have to work to come up with the same depth and detail of audio that Attitude has. Playing the game is a lot more fun than Warzone because of the better looking characters and audio components. As we said the Create-a-Wrestler is excellent plain and simple. The question is, which wrestling game do you get out of the big three coming out this fall? I'd have to say Attitude is the way to go if you simply can't wait and have been wanting this one all summer. It lives up to the hype. If you're undecided though I'd definitely wait for the final versions of both Wrestlemania and Mayhem since each of these games will have their respective strengths that will appeal to wrestling fans.
Perhaps the best way to view WWF Attitude is to look at it like a sports game. Every year, various companies pump out slightly upgraded versions of the same sports game with new rosters, a handful of new modes, and retouched graphics - and people really don't seem to mind one bit. Attitude succeeds because War Zone was an excellent wrestling game. But if you're fed up with War Zone, Attitude won't be the revolutionary new product you're after. It is, however, an extremely solid wrestling game that captures a lot of the atmosphere of the weekly circus that is the World Wrestling Federation, and Attitude packs a punch in the gameplay department, as well, and as a result, belongs in any wrestling fan's collection.
All Game Guide
Overall, WWF Attitude is a decent game. Wrestling games are tough to pull off because of the sport's mobile nature. The game needs to cover so many different angles, and cramming it all in is hard. WWF Attitude is not the worst wrestling game for N64. Actually, it's one of the best. Unfortunately, that's not very good.
A flawed game, but definitely not terrible. I recommend trying out both WWF Attitude and WWF Wrestlemania 2000 through a friend or rental store and comparing the two to your personal tastes. Both have their good, and both have their bad.

You have to feel sorry for anyone who buys this game looking for an accurate representation of WWF action. Without the license attached to the games box, this one would quickly end up in bargain bins (in a perfect world this would happen anyway). If you're lucky enough and haven't been sucked in yet, wait around for Wrestlemania 2000 by THQ.
