Introduction


Backstage Assault features over 50 WCW superstars including Goldberg, Mona, Sting, and Jeff Jarrett sporting their signature moves. You can also construct your own wrestler in the Create-a-Superstar mode. Gamers will pick fights in seven backstage areas (truck arena, media center, bathrooms, locker rooms, loading bay, the block, and parking garage) that are filled with weapons galore. In the career Hardcore Challenge mode, gamers will unlock a new backstage area with each victory until they get all seven arenas. Initially, you'll thrill with every crate, mirror, or iron pipe that smashes over your opponent's head. But after you unlock all the areas, the action will start to feel repetitive-you can enjoy someone getting smashed with a urinal only so many times.

The controls are simple to use: kick, punch, grab to do a move, or pick up a weapon. The graphics do a good job of rendering the superstars, though they could use more detail. The bright spot is the commentary of Tony Schiavone, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, and "Mean" Gene Okerlund, whose sly remarks really flow with the action. If you're a WCW fan, Backstage Assault is a good addition to your collection. Others should just rent it for a weekend.
