  • Summary: Immerse yourself in the chaos of a "Royal Rumble" match with up to 9 Superstars in the ring at one time. Better watch your back, because in this type of match there are no allegiances or friendships.

  1. The most impressive thing about the "Royal Rumble" is that thanks to the power of the Dreamcast, Yukes threw NINE guys in the ring at once, and with no slowdown or issues.
  2. Wrestling fans who long for the deep simulation value of games like "Wrestlemania 2000" or "WWF Smackdown!" should either approach this game with an open mind or stay away from it altogether.
  3. With the small roster and lack of modes, this one is probably best as a rental and not a purchase, but it is a good way to waste away a weekend.
  4. The sound effects -- while a little drab -- get the job done, but the buzzer that signifies a new wrestler entering the ring in the royal rumble mode will drive you absolutely insane with its frequency.
  5. With a lack of a 'create-a-wrestler' mode and many aspects of the WWF world missing, wrestling fanatics may want to rent this title first.
  6. With the small roster and lack of modes, this one is probably best as a rental and not a purchase, but it is a good way to waste away a weekend.

    If you've played other wrestling games -- especially "Smackdown" -- you'll find it hard to believe the developers thought they could get away with this.

    Not bad for what it is. AN ARCADE PORT! Take it for that and not a No Mercy or Wrestlemania 2000, and you can find some pretty good fun and enjoyment out of it. Expand

    This game sucks. If I were you I'd save my money and buy a different game.
