Gameplay

The gameplay takes place from a ¾ overhead perspective. Each wrestler shares a moveset in the game, with the exception of their signature moves. Every character performs a variety of suplexes, a backbreaker, a tombstone piledriver, an atomic drop, various diving attacks, and a variety of kicks, punches, elbow, and forearm shots. Several finishing moves have a similar appearance to "weak" moves that are done in the beginning of a wrestling match; like Dustin Rhodes' Bulldog and Johnny B. Badd's basic left hook.

Modes of play include singles, tag team, an eight-man singles tournament, a tag team tournament between four teams, and the "Ultimate Challenge," where a player must defeat every other wrestler in the game. Different stipulations can be selected for matches; bouts can either be contested under one fall, first to three falls, or a time limit of differing lengths where the most falls within the time limit wins the match. During the course of a match, boxes pop up showing the referee counting, Tony Schiavone providing minimal commentary, and wrestlers saying a catchphrase after performing their signature move. The wrestlers will also pop out and say their catchphrase on the wrestler select menu.

Reception

GamePro gave the game a generally negative review. They remarked that while the game has a good number of features and excellent licensing tie-ins such as digitized images and sound bites of popular wrestlers, "stiff animation and mediocre game play make the experience strictly second rate." They particularly noted that the stiff animations make it difficult to line a wrestler up in order to execute a move. Allgame gave the game a score of 2 stars out of a possible 5. The Allgame website noted the similarity of WCW SuperBrawl Wrestling to its rival games WWF Raw and WWF Royal Rumble, which featured WCW's main rival, the WWF.
