` ``We are very excited to be continuing the strong tradition of World Wrestling Federation games on Nintendo systems with `WWF WrestleMania X8.'''

```WWF WrestleMania X8' for Gamecube will allow World Wrestling Federation gamers to re-create the action-packed matches from this year's highly anticipated WrestleMania X8 event to be held in March 2002 in Toronto, Canada,'' stated Nelo Lucich, Director of Interactive, JAKKS Pacific Inc. ``We are very confident that Gamecube owners and World Wrestling Federation fans everywhere will appreciate the realism and detail that `WWF WrestleMania X8' delivers.''

Players can also choose from a variety of settings including appearance, costumes and special moves to create the ultimate grappler in the game's in-depth Create-a-Superstar mode.

New features exclusive to ``WWF WrestleMania X8'' include Championship Road, where players have the opportunity to take their rookie Superstar up through the ranks pursuing the championship. For the first time on any game system, ``WWF WrestleMania X8'' is slated to include the complete roster of top Superstars including Booker T, Rob Van Dam and The Hurricane(TM). Each character is personalized with their own unique style and repertoire of finishing moves.

I can understand Ure wanting to spend alot of money for wrestling related stuff. I've got two friends who go nutz for wrestling. I couldn't believe some of the expenses they were incurring to attend some of the events, but I guess if u're having fun that's all that matters.:cool:

Seriously folks, this game is the better of the two, and this game is only half-done!!! Looks definately promising for the rest of 2k2 for GameCube....

*drools over Metroid, Rune, PSO ver. 2, Skies of Arcadia, Mario Sunshine, Star Fox Adventures, Kameo, and Eternal Darkness*

*looks at Morrowind, Malice, Brute Force, Enclave, and Project Ego launch dates*:confused:

Looks definately promising for the rest of 2k2 for Xbox, yep...;)
