Unless the mention of names like "Stone Cold Steve Austin" and "The Rock" makes your eyes light up and your pulse rise, it's unlikely that WWF Wrestlemania 2000
will appeal to you. This officially licensed title features 15 World Wrestling Federation superstars and five modes of play, including WWF staples like the team-based survivor series and the tournament-style gauntlet mode. (Two-player mode is available via link cable.) Wrestlers can grapple in and out of the wrestling ring, as well as within the confines of the infamous chain-linked cage. Emcee Vince McMahon is around for added authenticity, although his and the wrestlers' trash-talk has been sanitized.
Making effective use of the Game Boy Color's graphics and sounds, THQ has done an admirable job of capturing the sensationalistic feel of the WWF, right down to the wrestlers' grandiose stage entrances. Unfortunately, WWF Wrestlemania 2000 is marred by poor gameplay--the controls aren't very responsive, and mindless button-mashing gets you farther than it should. --Joe Hon
