Description official descriptions

WWF Attitude is a follow-up to WWF War Zone. The gameplay is similar to that of its predecessor, including a variety of game modes and specialty matches, such as Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, Tornado matches, and others. The Create-A-Wrestler mode has been slightly enhanced, adding commentary and crowd chants responding to the superstars' nicknames. The Challenge Mode of the previous game is replaced by the Career Mode, allowing the player-controlled wrestler to participate in house shows, winning matches to work his way up to the prestigious Raw show, pay-per-view events, and eventually compete for the title. A few new match types and fall superstar entrances have also been added.

New game modes include Create-A-Stable and a Pay-Per-View mode, which allows the player to set up an own wrestling event. The game includes an option to customize arenas, editing the color of lights, ropes, turnbuckles, logos etc.

Here comes the Pain

The Good
WWF Attitude features some of the better create a wrestler options in wrestling games for its time. You can edit your wrestler to a lot of aspects and can even choose their entrance music. Players can also set up their own Pay-Per-View wrestling event and even edit the arenas, right down to the color of the ring ropes.

The roster for the game is relatively generous and offers some decent selections. Players can choose WWF Favorites like Stone Cold, Mankind, The Rock, and all the other big names from the day.

The Bad
For all its nifty bells and whistles, WWF Attitude is the equivalent of taking a folding chair to the noggin. The game is an absolute nightmare to control, thanks to Acclaim's wacky control scheme that makes the game much harder to play. Though the controls can be reassigned to reflect the THQ WCW wrestling titles, the game is still terrible thanks to a delay between pressing the button and the action happening on screen.

Said delay can be as long as one second, almost an eternity for a game. And when it comes to wrestling games, any delay in control is unacceptable and frustrating. The delayed gameplay and obtuse control scheme make winning effectively impossible.

The Bottom Line
WWF Attitude offers a lethal dosage of pain and misery by combining delayed controls with a truly awful control scheme and some down right ugly graphics. Considering how its predecessor, WWF War Zone, is more fun to play, the game seems like a big step backwards and is nothing short of a pure failure.

On a sadder note, this game serves as a tribute to the late wrestling legend Owen Hart, and after playing this game, most will only shake their head in misery and ask a simple but answerable question, "Why?".

Trivia

German version

In the German version, all blood effects were removed.

License

This was the last WWE (then WWF) game to be produced by Acclaim. Soon after the game was released, Acclaim lost their WWF license to THQ. Shortly thereafter, Acclaim begun producing wrestling games based on the now-defunct ECW (whose assets are, ironically, owned by WWE).

Motion capture

The motion capture actors for the characters in this game were none other than the Hardy Boyz.

Owen Hart

After the death of WWF superstar Owen Hart, it was rumoured that he would be removed from the game ( it was still in development at the time), however he is kept in the game along with a small tribute to him in the game
