IGN Cube:

"Looking for the best wrestler available for GameCube? WWE WrestleMania X8 features the most comprehensive wrestler list, a rousing set of match types, and a unique Battle for the Belts mode to heighten its multiplayer replay value. Unfortunately, X8 is not without its problems..."

"Sure, X8 still has all the pyrotechnic hullabaloo and slick presentation of a WWE broadcast, but underneath all that jazz, you'll find a complex system of holds and reversals that would please Greco-Roman grapplers. In fact, X8 has the best gameplay of any recent wrestling title."


Game Spot:
"WrestleMania X8 is an entertaining wrestling game. The gameplay mechanics are straightforward enough, and the reversal system gives an added element of depth. If you're looking for a fun wrestling game for the GameCube, then you'll definitely want to check it out."
