Overall this game is a great laugh. Whether you’re a fan of WWF or not, you will be impressed by this, one of the nicest made Gameboy colour games I have ever played. I didn’t try it out in two-player mode only because I was too engrossed in playing it in one player mode, but I’m sure if two players is anything to go by, it’s probably just as good as the one player version. The sound isn’t bad, the gameplay is first rate, and it will go the distance. This one is a must.
Power Unlimited (Jan, 2000)
Al zijn de moves soms lastig te maken, het is en blijft een geinig spelletje.
Wrestlemania 2000 unterscheidet sich allerdings dennoch kaum von anderen Wrestling-Spielen für den Game Boy. Aber als WWF-Fanatiker kannst du a mal die Daumen des Volkes an deinen GB legen und es Probe spielen...
Total! (Germany) (Jan, 2000)
Die Animationen der diversen Moves, wie auch das Aussehen der Fighter und deren Steuerung sind gut gelungen. Einzig die etwas zu langsame Grundgeschwindigkeit gibt Anlass zur Kritik. Beim Einmarsch ertönt leider nicht die Originalmusik der einzelnen Wrestler. Obwohl nur 16 Kämpfer in diesem Spiel vertreten sind, bekommen WWF-Freunde mit Wrestlemania 2000 einen soliden, gut spielbaren Titel mit vielen erlernbaren Moves geboten.

Though much of this game could have been done better, and it seems repetitive at times, I can't deny that I had some fun with it. Most of the WWF attitude has been left on the cutting room floor (see Stone Cold taunt in audio section), but WWF fans who are looking to add their favorite wrestlers to their Game Boy library will probably want to pick this one up. For anyone else, I recommend a rental.

Von der technischen Seite gibt es nichts zu bemängeln. Die Ringe sind zwar nicht sonderlich abwechslungsreich, überzeugen jedoch durch ihre Übersichtlichkeit. Ebenso sauber ist die Steuerung geworden, die schnell und präzise reagiert.
Gaming Target (Jan 22, 2000)
In the end, WWF Wrestlemania 2000 exudes some fine ideas, but lacks a solid gameplay engine and enough technical prowess. Nevertheless, for its time and technical restraints, the game suffices as a satiable experience.
Video Games (Feb, 2000)
Auf dem N64 ein tolles Game, doch was hat THQ bloß mit der GameBoy Version angerichtet? Ok, man quetschte 16 (sich viel zu ähnlich sehende) WWF Superstars aufs Modul, integrierte einen Trainingsmodus, fünf Hauptspielmodi, eine nicht unbedeutende Biorhythmusanzeige und optisch gelungene Einmarschsequenzen. All dies schon und gut, jammerschade nur, dass der eigentliche Kampf fast immer gleich verläuft - die Zahl der ausfahrbaren Moves ist zu limitiert, nicht mal auf die Seile klettern dürft ihr. Der Zwei-Spielermodus rettet diesen lieblosen Abklatsch um Haaresbreite in die Drei-Sterne-Konföderation.
Wrestling for Game Boy so far has been a disappointing endeavor to say the least. A crop of hastily cranked out attempts to cash in on the recent popularity of the TV shows have severely lacked innovation. WrestleMania 2000 for Game Boy is the newest addition to this trend with banal gameplay, unrecognizable characters (The Rock looks like an Irish high school jock with a crewcut) and a completely forgettable grappling engine. It seems a shame that a system that could easily handle a port of NES' Pro Wrestling and has boasted the most impressive handheld games ever (Zelda, Metroid 2) has yet to have a quality, deep wrestling title developed for it. We'll keep waiting.
If your thumbs are itching for a portable flogging, you could eke out a decent time for an afternoon or two with WrestleMania 2000. Keep in mind there are better wrestling games out there that offer more features, so shop around before you decide to grapple with this one.
For those desperate to take their favorite wrestlers on the road, check out some of the earlier WWF titles like WWF Superstars. It may not be a classic, but it's better than this. The fact that this game is in color doesn't make it worth the price of admission. The astonishing lack of now standard features and shameful gameplay barely push this game over the "tolerable" level.
