WCW/NWO Revenge is probably the best wrestling game on any console to date. Revenge builds on WCW World Tour filled the few gaps and adding more features.
Revenge has just about every wrestler on WCWs roster. Although a few wrestlers are missing (ie. Ric Flair), but this is because professional wrestling rosters are always changing. It also separates the wrestlers into the NWO Hollywood, NWO Wolfpack, Raven's Flock, and regular WCW representatives. Of course any wrestling fan now knows that as of last week there is only one NWO again, but that doesn't take away from the game.
Revenge has all of the WCW/NWO Championship Belts in it. After you win the belt with a wrestler that wrestler keeps the belt until you defeat him with a different wrestler.
The several different pay per view arenas and ability to fight on the ramp add to the fun. It is also neat that you can grab a weapon out of the crowd at anytime while you are outside the ring.
I also like the handicap and Battle Royal modes in Revenge. The costume edit feature is also pretty cool, but it would be better if you could create your own wrestler instead of just changing existing wrestlers outfits.
To sum it up WCW/NWO Revenge; this is a "must-have" game for any WCW fan and even WWF fans like myself would be entertained by this game. I hope that this games pushes Acclaim to make WWF: Attitude an even better game than Revenge, but until Attitude is released WCW/NWO Revenge has the Hoov Wreslting Video Game World Championship Belt!
