[CONSOLE] Nintendo 64 Game
WWF War Zone © 1998 Acclaim Entertainment, Incorporated.
DUCK!!! There's a 300 pound wrestler about to pound your head into the living room carpet! In Acclaim's power-packed World Wrestling Federation: War Zone, there's enough flying flesh to make a vegetarian turn green. Eighteen of the league's biggest brawlers show up for the battle, and you're in control! Challenge the Undertaker to a cage match, or smack Steve Austin with a steel chair. Better yet, choose from hundreds of options to create your own custom wrestler. Lace up your boots and tighten those trunks. Slap on the grease, and prepare for War.
Acclaim's staff had the guts to work closely with the tough guys of the World Wrestling Federation, which has resulted in a very realistic Game Pak. Wrestling auteur Vince McMahon and Jim Ross provide the play-by-play, so expect some sarcastic insults if your skills aren't sharpened. The wrestlers themselves stepped into the sound studio to provide grunts, taunts, and groans of agony. It wasn't hard to get the wrestlers to groan, because Acclaim motion-captured more than 300 of the meanest moves in the league. Before the big guys could head home, Acclaim made sure that you would be able to recognize the wrestlers by scanning a photo of each man's face. Now that's realism.
You won't have time to drool over the authentic character graphics, because you'll be more concerned with avoiding Ken Shamrock's flying elbow smash. War Zone gives players many different ways to recreate World Wrestling Federation drama, from tournament action to cage matches. If you see it on "Raw", then you'll see it in this game. Four player capabilities allow you and your friends to take on tag team matches, and if you have the endurance then you can enter the Royal Rumble. Is there a wrestler out there you really dislike? Challenge him to a Weapons match and then smash him with a folding chair, or crash a television over his head. OUCH!!
One of our favorite features of this game is the Create mode, where you can give birth to your very own World Wrestling Federation Superstar. It is obvious that the developers spent a lot of time on this feature, because the possibilities are virtually endless. Every element of the wrestler is adjustable, right down to the amount of hair on the wrestler's back. SICK!!
From skinny purple aliens to mammoth tattooed bullies, anything is possible. You can name the wrestler whatever you like, and customize the wrestler's attributes as well. All of this information is saved onto the Controller Pak, so you can take your wrestler to wage war at a friend's house.
Whether you're piledriving Goldust or pinning Shawn Michaels, World Wrestling Federation: War Zone delivers action-packed wrestling mayhem that will have you leaping off your couch.
