Sound - 5.0 The sound is very good before you start wrestling with the FMV and entertaining sound effects, but when you start wrestling it just plain sucks.
Graphics - 6.0 If frame rate weren't included in this rating than it would be much higher, but they really bring the mark down. Good wrestler drawings but the rings are way too dark.
Gameplay - 2.0 This is where every game is supposed to shine, but nitro falls far short. And that is an understatement. I found myself halfway through a match saying what the hell am I doing playing this game. I am bored as fuck. The only thing that kept me going was trying to unlock Jericho and some other secret characters.
Overall - 4.5 Well this game just plain stunk. Ut has no lasting apeal, the gameplay is horid, and there is no reason to play this game once you have unlocked to secret characters. I would give this game a rent if you are a fan of the arcade grappling system, but don't buy it. And if you only own a Playstation, then my advice is to wait untill Thunder comes out. But that will probably suck ass too. Oh well at least I have my World Tour and soon my Revenge.
