WCW Nitro

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

We like a good piledriver as much as the next Saturday-morning TV geek, but we're going to satisfy our wrestling jones elsewhere. Graphically, WCW Nitro would have disappointed players in 1999, when it was published. Today, the chunky background and crude 3D models don t come close to passing muster. The action occasionally stutters, too, even on a fast machine. The biggest problem, however, is the strange unresponsiveness of the controls. The customizable key commands rarely work as you expect, and the all-purpose action key is especially unpredictable. What's more, after each action, your character stops reacting for a few moments. Very frustrating. And if you're fantasizing about subjecting your roommate to a corkscrew moonsault, forget it: the demo only allows you to play the solo version. Considering how little they'll get for their trouble, even WCW fanatics might balk at the 15MB download.
