(Review of Game Boy version)
WCW Mayhem for Game Boy Color offers many of the same basic features as other wrestling
games. Each wrestler has a unique set of moves (performed by the same commands, though),
and backstage fights in the locker room or alleyways are also included.
With two Mayhem cartridges and a Game Link cable, two-player wrestling is also available, but
there is one fatal flaw that cripples the whole game as either a single or multi-player experience.
Almost any attempt to pull off a move results in a grapple, which is automatically executed if
you press B and A when near the opponent. As a result, you spend most of the time hugging
your opponent unintentionally. Pass on this 8-bit weenie of a game.
