  1. This game is horrible. THQ's long line of successful wrestling games has just gone down the drain. This game was just an overall extremely poor attempt at a game, and a laughable attempt at a wrestling game.
  2. There is no way around it, Royal Rumble feels entirely half-assed.
  3. A mediocre effort and use of the license. With only 22 wrestlers and subpar graphics and gameplay, the game should only appeal to desperate Dreamcast owners.
  4. 4
    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. Full Review »
