Although not epoch-making, this is definitely the best wrestling game money can buy. It's just great, basically.
Game Players
While this has been tailored so it vaguely resembles pro wrestling, the fighting is closer to Street Fighter, with wild, realistic attacks - many of which share the same button combinations as SF moves. The two - and four - player modes Vs. modes have you bouncing off the ropes for hours.
Ein klasse Wrestlinggame! Die Spielbarkeit, die Grafik und die Multiplayeraction sind einfach grandios. Jeder der ein bisschen auf Beat'em'ups steht, sollte mal Probe spielen. Saturday Night Slammaster kam 2 Monate früher heraus als WWF RAW und kann trotzdem den sich gegen RAW behaupten. Die einzigsten Negativpunkte sind hier wirklich nur die wenigen Spielmodis und die leicht nervige Musikuntermalung.

Gemessen am heutigen Videospielmarkt ist dieses Game zwar gut, aber eben nicht sehr gut. Schaut Euch das erste „Street Fighter 2“ oder das „WWF Royal Rumble“ an. Die würden heute nicht mehr so gut im Test abschneiden, dafür sind die Standards in Animation, Grafik, Sound etc. zu sehr gestiegen. Trotzdem, mit „Slammasters“ erhaltet Ihr das z.Z. beste Wrestle-Game, das auf dem Markt ist. Jeder, der auf „Beat 'em Ups“ steht, darf beruhigt in den Ring steigen.

Un bon jeu de catch, surtout à quatre, mais qui reste un peu trop simpliste pour s'affirmer parmi les jeux de combat.
As gamers gear up for the home version of Super Street Fighter 2, Capcom attempts to tide them over with Saturday Night Slam Masters, a wrestling game that, for all practical purposes, should have been titled Street Fighter II & 1/2. Luckily, this game has more going for it than just a famous association; it's a solid grapplefest in its own right.

You may wonder if TV wrestling is for real, but the action here is "for real" enough to chase any other wrestling game out of the ring. If your Street Fighter fightin' is getting too serious, jam with Slam!
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
For wrestling that's fun, you really can't beat Slam Masters. It's a great translation from the arcade and in many ways, like control, it's very much improved. There aren't a whole lot of special moves, but hey, this isn't exactly Street Fighter II here. This game is an absolute riot with four-players! As it stands, this game is fun for parties and gatherings, but it's not one I'd want to sit down and play all day.

Mit Slam Masters hat Capcom nicht unbedingt einen Mega-Hit a la Street Fighter gelandet, dazu fehlt einfach die spielerische Finesse: Was will man von je einem Hüpf- und Angriffsknopf schon erwarten? Trotzdem macht es einen Heidenspaß, sich mit den Fleischbergen im Ring auszutoben, wenngleich die Infight-Moves ein wenig zu zufallsgesteuert sind.
