WCW: Backstage Assault takes the action out of the ring and puts it in a complex of more than a dozen interlinked rooms. The fully interactive environments contain more than 40 objects-as-weapons, for example smash your opponent over the head with a two-by-four, then knock a urinal off the wall onto him. Players can choose from over 50 male and female wrestlers. You can even create your own wrestler by choosing characteristics in 39 different categories. Game modes include tournament, grudge match, first blood and human torch.
