Cage Match

As you might have guessed, I have a new word. Lame. Meaning anything naff or generally useless. This game fits it perfectly.

Billed as a 'future sports simulation', you play one of seven 'wrestlers' stuck inside a huge cage. You have to punch, kick, slap and jump on your opponents to batter their energy to a minus state. I can only say that this game reminds me of nothing so much as that other lame experience, Rock and Wrestle. The controls are pretty ineffective, having little real effect on what is going on. The graphics are poor and the animation is slow and jerky. The sound is pretty limited too. Is there anything good I can say about this game, I ask myself? Well, it does have a two player feature, but are there two people who want to play it?

Overall Summary

A lame game with lame graphics and the lamest playability seen since the last really lame game.
