Video Game Ad of the Day: WCW Nitro

WCW Nitro
I dare say that WCW Nitro is the worst video game licensed by a professional wrestling organisation. WCW Nitro is damn near uncontrollable, looks ugly by the standards of the day and animates awfully. It does feature a few amusing FMV clips of wrestler promos, but WCW Nitro should be avoided at all costs.

Video Game Ad of the Day: The Rugrats Movie

Rugrats the Movie UK
Rugrats was one of the great animated shows of the 1990s. The Rugrats Movie, on the other hand, is part of the show’s second run, with the pointless addition of Tommy’s baby brother Dil and other assorted characters, and a distinct loss of charm. The video games are terrible, as one would expect.

Video Game Ad of the Day: WCW/nWo Revenge


WCW/nWo Revenge is one of the best multiplayer games on the Nintendo 64, even though it was superceded by two sequels. It has the dubious honour of being the last good product to bear the WCW name, as everything else WCW touched after 1998 was complete shit.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Alter Echo

Alter Echo
Alter Echo is one of those utterly abysmal action/adventure games that nobody makes anymore. Probably the only good thing to happen as a result of astronomical increases in video game budgets.

Video Game Ad of the Day: A Bug’s Life


Pixar’s worst film, A Bug’s Life, also happens to be a subpar video game. What a surprise!

Video Game Ad of the Day: Sabre Wulf


The Game Boy Advance release of Sabre Wulf was a reimagining of the classic ZX Spectrum game, published by THQ following Microsoft’s purchase of Rare. The game is a platformer that draws reasonable influence from Donkey Kong Country, but each stage involves players stealing loot from under the nose of the titular wolf and running back to the start without getting caught.
