    Showdown is just as bad as its two predecessors in almost every way. [Aug 2004, p.93]
  2. The two places where this game really fails to deliver are in the pacing and the controls.
  3. I like having the option of pairing up thirty years of blood and sweatsocks, and there’s nothing really at fault with anything, it’s just unfortunate that their very accurate rendition of Seventies wrestling compares unfavourably with what Kurt Angle and colleagues are doing now on t.v and in the THQ games.
