Well, it had to happen didn’t it? A wrestling game for Dreamcast was never far off and was more inevitable than England losing at cricket. However, what wasn’t quite so inevitable was a game as appaling as this actually making an appearance on Sega’s super console. WWF Attitude isn’t just appaling it’s horrific. There’s no two ways about it, it’s so bad it would qualify for the title of worst game ever and probably win. It all starts promisingly enough with an impressive intro movie but then things start to go horribly, horribly awry. There are so many faults with this game that it’s hard to know where to begin, but with so few good features we might as well get them out of the way because the only way is down from there.
Any game with a four player option is at an immediate advantage, but it’s an advantage WWF Attitude discards like a bad smell. The game also has an impressive amount of variations of play to fool around with, including Championship, Tag and Versus modes as well as the evolutionary Create-A-Wrestler feature.
Sadly, that’s where the positives abruptly come to an end and the ride down the slope of awfulness begins. The three most important aspects of a game are its gameplay, graphics and sound, something the makers of WWF must have forgotten as all three aspects are simply dreadful. The game looks hideous, plays horrendously and sounds dire. Don’t be fooled, this game is awful. Nothing more, nothing less. So unless you’re prepared to be tortured, my advice is stay clear.
