  1. If you don't have the facility to gather at least two other people to your GameCube, then you will not find much fun in Wrestlemania X8.
  2. 40
    It's one of the better wrestling games available on any platform - except for the one unfortunate flaw that it gets sort of old after only a few hours of gametime.
  3. 40
    The gameplay is just devoid of fun.
  4. Lacks any great game modes, the controls are wacky at times, the AI needs some major work and the name just doesn’t fit.

    A very poor wrestling game for the Nintendo Gamecube. At least the games that came after this were massive improvements.

    The graphics were unimpressive. The BGMs did not fit the game at all. The sound was very low quality. The animations were very dodgy. The roster was really disappointing. The create a wrestler was very limited. The AI was awful. The collision detection was terrible.

    The only good things were the decent gameplay, entrances and I kind of liked the persue the belt mode.

    WWE Wrestlemania 18 has good graphics and controls. But the Path of a Champion is short and there is no need to go through it again when youWWE Wrestlemania 18 has good graphics and controls. But the Path of a Champion is short and there is no need to go through it again when you unlock all of the arenas and the superstars. The Royal Rumble in the exhibition mode is hard to beat.
