The WWF rumbles its way onto the Xbox in the first wrestling game for Microsoft's home console. Players can choose one of the existing stars of the WWF or create their own grappler to compete in one of three modes: Exhibition, Title Match, and King of the Ring. Each mode offers multiple wrestling formats varying in the number of athletes available in the ring. The roster of 60 characters includes managers as well as the women of the WWF.
Exhibition options include a one-on-one Single Match, two-on-two Tag Team Match, two-on-two Tornado Match, three-man Triple-Threat, four-man Fatal 4-Way, four-man Battle Royal, and a Handicap Match, which pits one on two or one on three. Title Match has players battling each wrestler in succession until they win the championship. Six events include the WWF Championship, InterContinental, European, Hardcore, Light Heavyweight, and Women's.
King of the Ring allows players to customize a tournament by selecting wrestlers, rules, and one of four match types: Single, Tag Tournament, Triple-Threat, and Fatal Four-Way. Players can also design their own wrestler from scratch, deciding on a name, nickname, gender, picture, voice, faction, and up to four wrestlers as the character's allies and/or enemies. Appearance options include skin color, hairstyle, face type, body type, and individual arm and leg clothing.
Once they have decided on a created wrestler's look, players can further customize offensive and defensive strengths by assigning 28 points to specific categories. They can also modify a wrestler's entrance into the ring. Among the features players can customize are lights, fog, camera flash, pyrotechnics, TitanTron movies, and theme music. The final aspect of creating a wrestler involves selecting the types of moves he or she can perform in the ring. Players can then save their wrestlers to hard drive. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
