  • Excerpt: THQ stated that WrestleMania X8 would be a mixture of Smackdown and No Mercy. This is true but if you are expecting a No Mercy remake from the Smackdown team, you won't find it here. The grappling and strike system do give a nod toward No Mercy but in the end, it feels more like the Smackdown series. This is due to the speed the moves are executed and the ability to earn multiple finishers in SD fashion.

WWE WrestleMania X8

Nintendo World Report
28 August 2002
  • Summary: Does Wrestlemania X8 reach the pinnacle of excellence akin to Shawn Michaels’ Summerslam performance, or does it fall on its face, clutching it’s leg in pain not unlike one Kevin ‘Big Lazy’ Nash? Click to find out.
  • Pros: A very polished visual experience, especially for a first generation title, Numerous play modes like Hell in a Cell and TLC matches increase replay value, The most updated roster currently available
  • Cons: A handful of entrance themes are missing for no reason, Create a Wrestler leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to appearance, Shoddy wrestling engine and questionable collision detection, Very few number of grapples available while playing

  • Excerpt: We're back! And we've brought you a big, steaming helping of some extreme reviews. The newly dubbed "WWE" makes its debut on your Gamecube, and wrestling fans should be amped. Wrestlemania X8 is a beauty to behold, and the combination of some old-school game concepts with new controls could be just the thing. Click here.

WWE Wrestlemania X8

Into Liquid Sky
27 December 2000
  • Excerpt: WWE Wrestlemania X8 is another in the long line of wrestling games based on the popular entertainment series. This time around, Yuke's ( Smackdown 3 ) has promised a mix between Smackdown and No Mercy (still popular from the N64 days). Unfortunately, this game has very little in common with No Mercy and is mostly an improved Smackdown .
  • Pros: Lots of Wrestling Modes, Easy to pick up, Good multiplayer
  • Cons: Not all of the wrestler models look good, Poor sound effects/music, Shallow CAW mode

  • Conclusion: <break>Bislang wurden Besitzer des Game Cube lediglich mit einem Wrestling Spiel bedacht. <i>THQ</i> schafft nun Abhilfe und bringt ein weiteres Wrestling Spiel für den Game Cube auf den Markt. Damit sind nun alle drei High-End Konsolen mit WWE Spielen von diesem Entwickler versorgt worden und man merkt <h2>Wrestlemania X8</h2> deutlich an das es sehr stark von "WWE Smackdown" inspiriert wurde.
