  1. I love the variety of choice in the matches, but I hated the grapple-controls.
  2. 85
    The game's strongest point is its graphics and audio presentation, which captures the vibe of a WWE telecast very nicely.
  3. The characters look just like their onscreen counterparts.
  4. The game may not do a great job in vertical movement, and you may have a time finding the right line that your opponent is on, but the game does a solid job of emulating WWE wrestling.
  5. 70
    There are some really, really good ideas in this wrestling game... The problem is in its challenges, and its computer AI.
  6. Game Informer
    Simplistic and primitive, but for the most part it works. [Mar 2003, p.92]
  7. Nintendo Power
    Players can go hand-to-hand or pick up weapons for the ultimate bruising battle. [Nov 2002, p.228]
  8. 64
    Chances are you’ll play this game for a maximum of 10 hours, unless you have a mate with the game as well, which could increase the gameplay value if you can put up with a slowed-down battle.
  9. The gameplay itself is shallow and boring.
  10. Pocket Games
    Sure to satisfy hardcore WWF fans, but it can't beat the GBA's real wrestling champ, Fire Pro Wrestling. [Spring 2002, p.39]

    Pretty good game ...But if compared to WWE Survivor Series they're about the same but all in all i think Road to Wrestlemania x8 is better.
