One of the most incredible wrestling games to date.

The Good
WCW/NWO Revenge for the Nintendo 64 possesses what few other wrestling games do. Its easily playable. Each wrestler has a large selection of moves which are easy to figure out with a short amount of play. The playability of the game makes the matches flow smoothly. Wrestlers hit who you tell them to hit and its the player's mistake if it doesn't happen right and not the game's which is not the case in many wrestling games. Each wrestling superstar has enough variation in moves to make matches fun and interesting. With 50+ wrestlers to choose from, this gives this game a long play life. In the hardest difficulty setting, the player will often find himself/herself in 5 star matches which makes it really fun for hardcore wrestling fans.

The Bad
The music is lacking. No wrestlers have unique wrestling themes. They all come out to generic music which has no resemblance to any real WCW theme music. Although having music for 50+ stars would've been a major undertaking and a lot of WCW stars did not have their own theme music, the major stars such as Hollywood Hogan, Kevin Nash, Sting, Goldberg, DDP, and others did. Also there's no real create a superstar mode. There is only the ability to edit existing wrestlers.

The Bottom Line
WCW/NWO Revenge stands as one of my favorite and most played video games of all time. It features a time when professional wrestling was booming which makes the game even more fun. It also preceded the Nintendo 64's other great THQ wrestling game WWF No Mercy.
