WCW vs. nWo – World Tour (USA) (Rev 1)

WCW vs. nWo – World Tour is a professional wrestling video game released in 1997 for the Nintendo 64 game console. Released at the peak of World Championship Wrestling‘s (WCW) dominance in the Monday Night WarsWorld Tour was THQ‘s first foray into the N64 wrestling scene and is a semi-sequel to the lesser known WCW vs. the World for the PlayStation. It is the second best-selling wrestling game for the N64 console.[3]

Asmik Ace Entertainment and AKI approached the title by producing a wrestling game similar to Puroresu and fighting games. The resulting game was well received for its tight construction and ease of play, especially compared to Acclaim’s comparatively more difficult and convoluted game, WWF War Zone. In fact, the playing style of World Tour, namely its revolutionary “grappling system”, set a standard for pro wrestling video games to be expanded in future THQ titles for many years following.[4]

Its sequel, WCW/nWo Revenge, would build upon the engine by introducing ring entrances, improved graphics, more arenas, more signature moves, actual WCW championships, attire modification, and other improvements.

Reviews for the game upon release ranged from mixed to moderately positive. Critics almost unanimously liked the large number of licensed wrestlers,[9][11][5][15][17] wide range of gameplay modes,[9][5][15][17] and large move set,[9][11][5][15][17] but some found problems with how the game actually played. Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) and GameSpot both criticized the controls as inaccurate and questioned the lack of analog control.[9][11] GameSpot commented, “A sense of timing is required not only to find holes in your opponent’s defenses, but also to find the points at which the Nintendo 64 will allow you to perform moves at all.”[11] However, IGN defended the game’s control: “Everything works quite well, despite some instinctive button mashing and slow-moving wrestlers at times.”[5] EGM and GameSpot both also said the single-player is fairly slow and boring,[9][11] though like the overwhelming majority of reviewers, they found the multiplayer modes much more enjoyable, particularly battle royal.[9][11][5][15] GameSpot explained, “Maybe it’s the license, or maybe it’s the capacity to grab foreign objects from outside the ring, or throw opponents from it, but this game brings out the best and worst in human competitors.”[11] Nintendo Power remarked, “The great thing about this game is that you can do a lot without knowing a lot, which makes it perfect for multiplayer matches when one or more players may be new to the game.”[15]
