WCW Backstage Assault (USA)

WCW Backstage Assault is a professional wrestling video game by Electronic Arts (EA). It was the final World Championship Wrestling (WCW) game released before the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) purchased the company’s assets three months later. Backstage Assault features commentary by Tony Schiavone and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. The game is distinguished by the fact that all gameplay takes place outside of a standard wrestling ring. This approach was poorly received, and the game sold only 200,000 copies.

Gameplay

Backstage Assault is vastly different from other games of its genre. Previous wrestling games such as WWF SmackDown! and WCW Mayhem featured backstage areas as auxiliary fighting locations. In Backstage Assault, all of the gameplay takes place in backstage locations. There is no ring, and it is not possible to go into the main arena in front of the crowd.

All of the matches are conducted under “Hardcore Rules”. As in traditional wrestling, one person can win by pinfall (holding the back of the opponent’s shoulders to the ground while the referee counts to three), submission, or knock out. But these win conditions may be met anywhere, and the use of objects as weapons is encouraged. It is not possible to end a match by disqualification or count out. As gameplay is limited to only two characters, all matches are one-vs-one with no possibility of outside interference or teamwork.
