WCW Backstage Assault

WCW Backstage Assault


Backstage Assault was the last in a long line of WCW games made. this edition featured new wrestlers like David Flair, Crowbar, Medusa Miceli, and even some favorites like Billy Kidman, Ric Flair, and Goldberg.

Graphics: 5/5
The graphics have been improved since the days of WCW Mayhem. Now they actually look like their real life counterpart, and torching them is funny to watch.

Sound: 5/5
No announcers as usual, meaning we don't have to listen to Tony Schiavone talking about random stuff. The sounds made to show being hit by an object are accurate.

Replay Value: 5/5
It's well worth replaying so you can unlocking wrestlers like Lance Storm, 3 Count, or even Mike Awesome. You have to have a Controller Pak (or memory card, whichever version you play), but it's well worth it.

Challenge: 5/5
The move sets have gotten a lot more difficult since WCW/NWO World Tour and Revenge.





Final Thoughts:
This game is the one you should get thanks to the amount of wrestlers and areas you can unlock

This is why Nintendo made the Gamecube. It was trying to make the graphics better.

Yeah seriously. I love the N64 but I doubt I'd ever wanna play it again. Those graphics just don't age well. Back in the day this was awesome though!

Re: WCW Backstage Assault

Day of Reckoning games on Gamecube are the best wresting, or even fighting games. Kind of short review, but to the point.

Day of Reckoning Cam? I liked it but I wouldn't go so far as saying it's the best, I mean I relly enjoyed Day of Reckonings 1 & 2 but imho Smackdown Shut Your Mouth was the best wrestling game out of all on the 3 systems.

As for this review, I enjoyed it... the game however, not so much as I was never really a WCW fan, I was more ECW and WWF...you know back when they were entertaining and not stupid like it is nowadays.

Re: WCW Backstage Assault

Never played that one, it was from the SVR series, which. I prefer the arcade style fighting in Day of reckoning over the awkward control in the SVR series, yeah I know it was before SVR, but it's still from the same series. Only thing I likead about SVR was the GM mode. Another plus, I watched wrestling in 04/05 & 07/08 but it got repetitive, and my favourite guys were always hated and lost (Edge). Anyways, I enjoyed 04/05 the most, and that is where the DOR games take place.

Nope, none of them are even close to the N64 games.

Best fighting game? O~K

Re: WCW Backstage Assault

I'm not too big on the regular fighting genre other than KI & Dragon Ball Z: Budokai, I haven't played many. Guess that was a stupid comparison, I never liked the N64 wrestling games either...

Re: WCW Backstage Assault

I'm glad you admit how bad the fighting game comparison is.

I loved the N64 wrestling games but all the ones after them just seemed to focus too much on graphics and/or "options" and skimped on actual gameplay.

I have three of the wrestling games right now. I'm trying to get backstage assault back from my eldest sister.
