"WWF WrestleMania X8 features more than 35 Superstars in multiple match types including hardcore, tornado tag and triple threat matches. A TV-style presentation complete with dynamic lighting effects, pyrotechnics, camera flashes and multiple camera angles brings the action to life as Superstars enter the arena accompanied by signature TitanTron videos and music. 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. Each character is personalized with their own unique style and repertoire of finishing moves. These new Superstars, in addition to World Wrestling Federation veterans such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H, give WWF WrestleMania X8 the finest collection of talent ever assembled in a video game (note from Samurai N: kyahahahaha !)."
