ECW Hardcore Revolution is a professional wrestling video game released by Acclaim Entertainment, based on the professional wrestling promotion Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). The game was released for the Nintendo 64, Sony PlayStation, Sega Dreamcast, and Game Boy Color. It was the first wrestling game to be based on ECW, as well as the first professional wrestling game to receive a Mature rating from the ESRB, although the Game Boy Color version was rated Everyone. Acclaim followed this title with the release of a sequel, ECW Anarchy Rulz, six months after this game was released.

Gameplay

Gameplay to ECW Hardcore Revolution is identical to WWF Attitude. Much of the content was the same, but elements were changed to replace WWE owned material with Extreme Championship Wrestling material. The similarities are so strong that match rules from WWF Attitude are retained. Some matches could be won or lost via a ring-out count or disqualification, which does not happen in ECW.

All of the characters were performers and staff members involved with ECW during the game's production. Some personalities who left the company during production were left in as unlockable characters. Some of the "jobber" characters are based on Acclaim staff, or are completely fictional creations.

In Season mode, a fictional Acclaim Championship becomes the first title that the player's character competes for. This is due to ECW only having 3 championships, where as 4 were available in WWE Attitude.

The game does feature a few unique moves, but many are actually duplicates of moves that are also available in the game. For example, Danny Doring's finisher "Whambam Thankyou Mam" is identical to "Double Arm DDT".

One of the game's unique features is match commentary by Joey Styles. This is one of the very few wrestling based video games to use just one commentator.

Match Types

With the exception of the Barbed Wire Match, all of the matches in the game featured in WWF Attitude mostly under different names. For example, a Triple Threat match would become a 3 Way Dance. Matches which involve elimination are denoted with an asterisk (*).

The Barbed Wire Match replaces the ring ropes with barbed wire. Similar to cage matches, certain moves are unusable and damage is inflicted if a player runs into them. However, the ability to climb the turnbuckles in the corner and to leave the ring is retained. Players bleed automatically from the torso or back if they run into the barbed wire.

Reception

The game was met with very mixed to negative reception. GameRankings gave it a score of 56.91% for the Nintendo 64 version; 54.50% for the PlayStation version; 43.79% for the Dreamcast version; and 38.33% for the Game Boy Color version.

Critics praised Joey Styles's commentary, and the use of weapons during the game. However, many reviews criticized Revolution for being a near copy of its predecessors, WWF Attitude and War Zone, and not reflecting ECW's unique style, just covering over everything with ECW wrestlers and themes.
