  1. Backstage Assault is a thumb-tiring, momentum-building excursion, sporting the thrills and skills of WCW action. And because it is a no-holds-barred battle fest, you can use whatever weapons are on hand.
  2. 70
    Great fun for a while, but gets repetitive pretty quickly.
  3. A novel idea, but in the end, it doesn't have enough variation to make it worthwhile. This one is only for the hard-core WCW fan.
  4. Total Video Games
    The wrestlers contain so few polygons, they look like an Origami project gone bad. This might be excusable if this lack of detail made up for fast-paced and smooth action, but sadly this isn't the case either.
  5. CNET Gamecenter
    This game stinks worse than the Nature Boy's jock strap.
  6. 20
    Looks unforgivably awful, recycles the middling control system from WCW Mayhem, and builds itself around a gimmick that defeats the purpose of a wrestling game. It's not good, children. Not good at all.
  7. In attempting to make its mark by trying to be something a bit different, WCW Backstage Assault has instead ended up being the lamest thing since Long John Silver.
