“Actual PS2 Graphics!” - Playstation Magazine #33 [May 2000]
God, I love covers like this especially when the amazing thing that’s being touted was nothing more than a bold-faced lie. The WCW 2000 game that’s being mentioned here ended up being WCW: Backstage Assault, a title that had one of the worst receptions for a wrestling video game.
WCW as a company might have been cooling down at this time, but EA’s decision to make a wrestling game that didn’t even have a wrestling ring probably had a lot to do with the poor sales. Also, the game was never released for the Playstation 2, only the Nintendo 64 and Playstation AND it looked nothing like the “amazing graphics” you see above.
