Goldberg to make N64 debut


By JOHN POWELL -- SLAM! Wrestling

  Coming in October Goldberg fans will have their dreams come true. That's when THQ Inc. releases the WCW/nWo Revenge video game for the Nintendo 64 game console.

Revenge, a sequel of sorts to the hugely popular WCW Vs. nWo: World Tour, allows players to wrestle as WCW Champion Bill Goldberg or more than 40 other WCW/nWo superstars complete with their trademark finishing moves and taunts. Some of the grapplers to choose from are Raven and The Flock, Chris Benoit, Booker T, British Bulldog, Diamond Dallas Page, Juventud Guerrera, Bret Hart, Kanyon, Chris Jericho, Psychosis, Saturn, Rowdy Roddy Piper and all the nWo Wolf Pac and nWo Hollywood members in their corresponding colors / outfits. Also available are fictional wrestlers from two alternative federations and secret characters which become active once a player successfully reaches certain levels of competition.

Using WCW Vs. nWo: World Tour as a foundation, THQ has added some exciting features to the game play. The most fascinating addition for hardcore gamers is that the 128 MB cartridge makes it possible to save win / loss records and the titles held for each wrestler. You want to bring Dean Malenko in nWo Wolf Pack or have Diamond Dallas Page turn traitor and join nWo Hollywood? No problem. Gamers can play booker as well switching characters from WCW to nWo status (or vice versa) as they see fit by selecting a special edit feature.

The Battle Royal mode has been altered so 40 grapplers participate and as each is eliminated a fresh superstar takes their place. Sadistic players (like myself..heh..heh.) can cheat their way to victory by battling in the entrance ways and scooping up illegal objects such as briefcases, chairs, tables, bats which unlike World Tour, can now be brought directly into the ring.

Improving upon the already mind-blowing graphics THQ has re-worked the wrestler entrances to display a fireworks show and arena backgrounds to choose from will include Monday Night Nitro and actual WCW pay-per-views such as Bash At The Beach which contain their own specialized scenes and props.

For the PC / Windows 95 gamers, WCW Nitro hits stores later this year and boasts "photo-realistic" graphics as well as the option of multi-player games on the Internet.

THQ Inc. is a premier publisher, marketer and developer of licensed video games for a host of hardware platforms.
