WCW Nitro

WCW Nitro PC CD beat 'em up professional wrestlers pro team wrestling match game 



THQ, Inc. 



WCW Nitro for Windows is a professional wrestling game featuring 18 default WCW/NWO wrestlers and dozens of hidden wrestlers, managers, and game designers. The game features seven play modes: three for single players, three for multiple players, and one for single or multiple players. In the one-player tournament, a single player selects a WCW or NWO superstar and battles against ten other wrestlers on the way to the WCW championship belt. Once a player wins the belt with a wrestler, the game unlocks a hidden character. There is a total of 54 hidden characters in the game, and a different wrestler unlocks each one.

In a one-player exhibition match, a single player selects a wrestler and a wrestling opponent and heads to the ring to battle it out. The exhibition matches do not unlock hidden characters, but they can be a good way to learn a particular wrestler's moves. In the two-player VS match, two players select two wrestlers to mix it up in the ring. This type of match is also an exhibition match and will not unlock any hidden characters.

In a one-player exhibition tag team match, a single player selects two wrestlers and two computer opponents for a two-on-two rumble. When one wrestler becomes tired, he can tag his partner to come in and grapple. In a two-player VS tag team match, two players select two wrestling tag teams and square off against one another. The first team to pin an opponent wins.

In Battle Royal Mode, one or two human players can take on the world in a 16-wrestler battle. The winner is the last wrestler standing, and the losers are the wrestlers who get tossed over the top rope. Whenever an opponent tosses a human player's character, that player takes control of the next wrestler to enter the ring. If the number of remaining wrestlers is four or less, and the human player's character is tossed, then that player's game is finished.

Finally, players with access to a local area network, the Internet, or a direct modem connection can connect to different games of WCW Nitro and play against remote players. Players can choose to create sessions or join sessions created by other players. In all match modes, players can win by pin, by decision at the bell, or by a count out. Players can turn off the match timer for pin-only matches, and they can set the count out timer to "unlimited" so that the referee does not count wrestlers out when they are outside the ring.

Players can also choose to have match interference from other wrestlers. Whenever a character has extremely low energy, a friendly wrestler can run from backstage to interfere with the match. Computer wrestlers can also have friends interfere with the match. Players can save and reload games of WCW Nitro for play in different game sessions.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
