Excerpt: Being a huge wrestling fan and having Played Smackdown on the PSX at the time, I was completely shocked when I walked into my local games shop and seen WWF Royal Rumble on the shelve exclusively for the Dreamcast. Being such an impulsive shopper at the time, I whipped out my Visa and planked down £250 to get the system along with this game and Virtua Tennis. My thinking that the Tennis game would very rarely feature in my DC. How wrong I was though.
Excerpt: I'm not noramlly one for gratuitous violence and there is no way you can call an oiled up testosterone filled idiot in a pair of trunks sexy, but something about this games really gets my adrenaline going. For those of you who are unaware, WWF actually stands for World Wrestling Federation (although this may soon change due to a law suit!) and is an entertainment company that produces wrestling matches for our 'enjoyment'.
Pros: Graphics are great and realistic - 9 MEN IN THE RING AT ONCE ! ! !
Excerpt: I have been a fan of wwf computer games for a number of years now, and have enjoyed playing and reviewing them thorughout my life. WWF royal rumble for the Dreamcast is one of the most realistic wrestling games up to date, there are 13 wrestlers to choose from, and two secret wrestlers that can be unlocked. These are vince mcmahon and his son shane mcmahon.
Excerpt: Finally, a wrestling game for the DC that is fun. Those who are looking for an options filled wrestling sim will be disappointed but for those looking for a fun, fast paced game Royal Rumble is for you. The Royal Rumble mode is hectic but great fun to play. The main problem is that there are only 21 characters so the same characters will show up in the ring more than once. More modes would have been nice, too.
Excerpt: WWF Royal Rumble is one of a trio of new WWF endorsed games brought out this year, this game along with No Mercy and Smack Down 2 (know your role) are all new titles that have a varied degree of anticipation. Royal Rumble contains two main modes, Exhibition and Royal Rumble, while previous wrestling games flaunted Hardcore, Cage, Boiler room etc. matches you are far more limited in RR.
Excerpt: Yes this is the definitive wrestling game out there. You may well be wary of buying any wrestling games on the Dreamcast and I don't blame you; we've had the absolutely apalling WWF Atittude and ECW hardcore Revolution to scare you off but do not worry as royal rumble is probably as good as virtual Wrestling will get for the time being. The first thing you'll notice are the visuals.
Excerpt: This is an alright game for one or more players, to have fun with. However there is little variation, in punches and there is few different boxers to play with. Although the graphics are great the game does become a bit boring after a few weeks. However there are a lot of tournaments and different options to play around with.
Excerpt: WWF Royal Rumble is the latest in a seemingly endless string of wrestling games to hit the console market - but luckily Royal Rumble is one of the best. Wrestling fans will be in heaven will all the extras crammed into this little gem. All of your favourite superstars are available and ready to rumble - Triple H, The Rock, Rikishi - the sheer volume of wrestlers on offer is absolutely amazing.
Excerpt: THQ, famous for bringing the best wresting games to a home console in the form of WCW vs NWO: World Tour, WCW Revenge and WWF Wrestlemania 2000 for N64 have joint Sega and Yukes in a venture to produce an A class wrestling game for the Arcades and Dreamcast. From preview screenshots this game looked very similar to THQ's n64 games, only in high resolution as you would expect.
Excerpt: this is another wrestleing game, but this one is much better than any other, even if it is wrestleing! you get to play as all your favourites like the rock and steve austin, you can fight anywhere and pick stuff up and smash it over your oponents head! and every so often other superstars come in and help you! and in the royal rumble mode, up to 9 characters can be on screen at the same time!
