  1. A top-notch wrestling title on the GC. The characters all have tons of personality, the gameplay is great, and there are enough modes to keep players pummeling till the end.
  2. If you are a fan of the whacked out cartoon series, then you are definitely going to be tickled beet red with a kick to the solar plexus.
  3. A great game. While the AI can be extremely tough and playing the Story mode through so many times gets a bit old, these shortcomings are more than made up for with the intensity, presentation, and clean fun that it has to offer.

    While the gameplay is super tight, the depth is a bit lacking and the single-player modes could definitely use more variety. But for a lot of gamers, the killer personality, fast pace, and handsome looks of Ultimate Muscle will highlight the best trait the game has, it's simply fun to play.
  5. You won't be disappointed with this game's high octane pace, simple arcade controls, and flamboyant finishers. [July 2003, p.112]
  6. What I really enjoy is buying painted Muscle figures from the in-game vending machines. [July 2003, p.110]
  7. The moves are so disappointing and ineffective, you’re down for the count before the festivities begin. On the list of failed comebacks, file this one below ALF.

    This is one of the best wrestling games I have ever played. Now I am not a fan of the series so I was a little shaky buying it. However it was great. It has relatively easy controls for younger people it has an interesting array of characters and the stories, despite being short are great. Also there are plenty of modes to keep it from ever becoming boring. There are also a couple of secret characters and toys to unlock. Expand

    This game is better than the show because you are your favourite wrestler. You control what he does. The only thing that is bad is the graphics they can be better but overall its awesome. Collapse
