Die Sprites der WWF Helden sind winzig, dafür gehen die detaillierten Animationen ohne Flackerei über die grellbeleuchtete Bühne. Jeder Star trumpft mit seinen persönlichen Hieben und Tricks auf (...) Wer neben Matches zwischen den Ringseilen auch hinter Gittern toben möchte, wird mit WWF Steel Cage Challenge gut bedient.

None of the wrestlers have their signature finishing moves (though they do have their own musical themes, tra la la), and their movesets are all basically the same. Still, Steel Cage‘s solid controls and generous play options for one and two player alike, lessen the game’s negative aspects.
Presentation is very inadequate, as there is no music during the matches (although it exists during the wrestler selection), sound effects are limited to ho-hum crowd noises and grunts, and the sloppy character graphics are so undefined that wrestlers can barely be distinguished by their clothing. And the titular “Steel Cage Challenge”? That simply is underwhelming as well – it amounts to slowly climbing to the top of the cage by pressing UP repeatedly when the opponent is down. However, if the wrestler cannot reach the top before fallen foe stands back up, the wrestler on the cage will fall down to the apron for no reason. It’s weak, which fits right in with the rest of the game.
Retro Game Reviews (Aug 13, 2015)
In reality, WWF WrestleMania: Steel Cage Challenge is a simple brawler that's been disguised as a wrestling game. It has little depth and the action is so flawed and repetitive that it's impossible to play for too long without developing carpal tunnel syndrome!
