I was never a big fan of WWF as I am not really an animal lover. Boom-boom - I thank you :) Joking aside, I only really enjoyed the showmanship of Hulk Hogan, Macho Man and Andre the Giant, but the rest of it just seemed to be wasted on me. I was a little gob-smacked when I saw that Ocean released a game based on the WWF wrestling concept; as far as I was concerned, Rock & Wrestle was as good as it was going to get! Anyway, thanks to Gaz for spending the time to play through this to obtain the ending...

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not too sure how Gaz completed this, but I am presuming that he played all the way through without a cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Not much. You win your final bout, and then you are presented with an ending screen displaying a picture of the winner, and a load of flags. There's also an ending message that reads: "CONGRATULATIONS. EUROPEAN RAMPAGE CHAMPION." This is accompanied by a rendition of 'Land of Hope and Glory'.


  • Gaz Spence: All you needed to do with this was biff the bad guy a couple of times then maintain a safe distance while waiting for the clock to run down... A damp squib of a game and the ending failed to get my heart racing, although the music is not so bad. Probably worth 3.5!

  • Vinny: Hmmm... looks like a basic ending to me. The tune is a little flat, and so is the rest of the ending. What happened to all the flair and excitement of WWF?

  • Andrew Fisher: (Ocean released two games based on WWF wrestling at the time - this, and Wrestlemania that was inspired by the arcade game. There was also Microleague Wrestling, which featured digitised graphics).

  • Stadium64: The congratulations screen is at least rather nice to look at. You can choose between 4 players, so the ending has 4 different faces to be displayed. But those faces are exactly the same as the ones from the screen where you chose your player. This ending is little better than Ocean's other wrestling game. The other wrestling game have a worse congratulations screen, and equal ending music.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Was never into wrestling - something about watching men in trunks grappling with each other doesn't appeal to me. I did have both games on the Amiga though and both were terrible. The end leaves much to be desired - standard boring congratulations.

FINAL SAY: A shameful event :(

G.E. RATING: 3.5 / 10
