THE LATEST UPDATES WILL ALWAYS BE FOUND AT GAMEFAQS.COM ========================= 2. Introduction ========================= Everybody knows what WWE is. When you heard of WWE Crush Hour, you might think that they are just making another wrestling game. But no, this is not a wrestling game. This is a car combat game, like Twisted Metal. Many people thought that this game will be terrible, but they are so wrong. WWE Crush Hour is very fun with different types of game matches like Lumberjack and Hardcore, all enhanced for car combat style. It's also very cheap and definitely worth the price. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 3. The Story ========================= Vince McMahon now has complete ownership of WWE, and he's going too far. Now you can see the Superstars in all kinds of different shows like Cooking Shows and even Survivor. One of his most exciting show is Crush Hour. Now this is why the Superstars battle in their cars. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 4. The Controls ========================= D-Pad/Left Analog Stick - Used to steer Right Analog Stick/the X button - Accelerate Square button - Brake and reverse Circle button - Turbo Triangle button - Use special move when the meter is full R1 - Shoot R2 - Shoot grabbed/equipped weapon L1 - Power slide L2 - Change equipped weapon with other grabbed weapon ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WARNING!

Tips, Strategies and Secrets ================================= ~ Use your special wisely. If the opponent has the invulnerability power-up, wait until it's over before shooting your special. If your special has multiple shots, shoot when there are multiple enemies nearby to take them all out. ~ I know it's cheap, but always target enemies that have low health left. ~ Leave the weak weapons and grab the powerful one. ~ Even though they are weak, the mines comes in about 4 a pack. Put them at a place where enemies always go and it's almost a sure KO. ~ If you can't pass a match in Season mode, quit and come back. The players will be different and you might get weaker enemies. ~ You never know where there are fake walls.If you shoot them, they'll brake. Almost all of the time, there's something good inside. ~ If opponents are at the edge of a platform with no fences, push them off. They'll lose a score. ~ In the character select screen, press L2, Square, R2, Circle to unlock Kevin Nash. This code was taken from the GameFAQs Codes & Secrets page. Thanks to testerx for finding the code! ~ To unlock Demolition Derby mode, beat a match without firing a single weapon. I did it in Season mode, but you can do it in Exhibition (see credits). To beat a match easily, try Lumberjack or Hardcore. You can play Demolition Derby in any one of the arenas. To select DD, select it at the rules page.(where you select match type, score to win, Handicap, AI Computer etc.) In DD, there's no weapons. You deal damage by ramming opponents. No health pickups either. Only turbo. - I received a long email from David Gray The background color in the character select screen is important. Red means they start in Raw and advances to Smackdown. Blue means they start in Smackdown and advances to Raw. LOCKED CHARACTERS HAVE AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT SEASON!! Same as above characters, but all levels are set for "Hard" AI difficulty and some levels have more K/Os required. In final battle, when you lower Vince's 1st health bar, he will explode and a tinier car will replace him. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 7. Weapons and Powerups ========================= In Crush Hour, there are plenty of weapons and pick ups. Unfortunately, it's like impossible to know what a specific pick up is until you pick it up except the health and turbo, unless you memorise the location of that item. Health pick-up - Restores a bit of health. The pickup looks like a "plus sign" Turbo - Makes you zoom ahead. The pickup looks like an arrow Twisty Rockets - A lot of missiles will zoom and home towards the opponent. Always have 1 ammo per pick up. Very useful. Laser-Guided Rockets - Homes towards opponents. Comes in 3 ammo per pick up. Annihlator - The most powerful weapon ever, but comes in 1 ammo per pick up. The range is medium and it does not home. Powerful but hard to hit somebody with. Mines - Not too powerful, but comes in about 4 ammo per pack. Lay it on somewhere where opponents always go to like near a weapon. If not careful, you'll step on your own mine and damage yourself. Grenade Launcher - About 8 ammo per pack, this can be a powerful weapon. The only problem is it's hard to hit an enemy with it unless they are driving towards you or they are aginst a wall. Atomic Drop - Quite a powerful one, but very hard to hit somebody with. 1 ammo per pack. When you shoot, it flies far away then drops to the ground, dealing a lot of damage to any nearby cars. Looks like a blue cannon. VRF Gun - Comes in about 2 ammo per pack, this gun is quite useful. Medium range. Ramming Power - This is one of my favorite weapon. Ram somebody with this on and you'll deal MAJOR damage to the vehicle you rammed. Double Damage - Looks like a remote control. Makes your car glows red and you'll do double damage Armor - Makes your car pure black (or is it silver?) and you'll suffer less damage. Invulnerability - You'll not suffer any damage for a short period. Looks like the WWE icon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 8.

Note: Sometimes, the order of Smackdown and Raw matches switches with each other. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 9. Exhibition Mode ========================= Here's a list of matches in Exhibition mode: Raw Smackdown Hardcore Hell in the Cell Lumberjack Ironman Cage * Royal Rumble * Running the Gauntlet * Survivor Series * King of the Ring * Battle Royal * Bottom Line * * - unlock in Season mode first And here's the strategy for each match -Raw- Goal : Score a set number of KOs Stage Layout : The whole arena is a circle. In the outer circle, you will find health and turbos. In the inner circle, there are flame jets with the Twisty Rockets, Annihlator, Laser Guided Rockets and Grenade Launcher standing on them, waiting to be picked up. These weapons does not appear in the first time you play Raw in Season. In the innermost circle, there are buzz saws that pop up from the ground , protecting an invulneralbility pick up. Strategy : Definitely a hard stage. There are no walls to block shots from hitting you. If you get destroyed by the hazards, you'll lose a KO score as well. Just grab the powerful weapons and target the weaker enemies. -Smackdown- Goal : Score a set number of KOs Stage Layout : The main area has 4 mini ramps leading up to a Double Damage protected by flame jet. On the flame jet, you can get an armor as well. In the outer areas, you can find health and turbo pickups as well as fake walls. Destroy the fake wall and you could find a Twisty Rocket and even an annihlator. Strategy : It's easier than Raw as there are less hazards and plenty of walls to protect you. Also, the weapons are easier to find. Just shoot anybody and everybody. -Hardcore- Goal : Get the belt and hold on to it for a set time limit. Stage Layout : The starting area has three paths, left, right, and straight. Straight will lead you to the main area with the belt. The main area has a few paths as well. Some leads to the starting area and some leads to a smaller room. Strategy : Use turbo. If you fail to get the belt first, shoot the person that has it until he/she explodes, then grab the belt. When you have it, go to an open area and try not to get cornered. Also, try to pick as many health as you can and use turbo to escape from everybody. -Hell in the Cell- Goal : Score a set number of KOs Stage Layout : It's basically a square. You start out in the innermost square, with an armor in the middle. Then the doors open, allowing you to go to the outer square. There you'll find mines and grenade launchers. After a short while, the pyramid doors open, allowing you into the pyramid, where all the powerful weapons lay. The Annihlator lies in one of the bigger pyramids, on a square platform with pillars surrounding it, near the fire pit. In Demolition Derby, the Annihlator is replaced with an invulneralbility pickup. Strategy : Same strategy as always. Just shoot away and grab those weapons. -Lumberjack- Goal : Get a set number of stars before others. The stars has a beam of light shining on it and an arrow appears on top of the screen, guiding you to the star. Stage Layout : A logging area. The starting area is a big wide circle. The above area has a ramp (sometimes a star appears in the air so you have to use the ramp) and 2 huts. The bigger hut with the buzz saw has an annihlator. Stars often appear behind the hut as well. Strategy : Use turbo often. You can find turbos around the starting area. KO an opponent to lower their score by 1. -Ironman- Goal : Have the highest KO score after the time limit. Stage Layout : The starting area is a square with a VRF gun. Not too useful. The outer areas have the ramming power and a laser guided rocket. Strategy : Just keep shooting away and build up your special meter. -Cage Match- Goal : Battle in a cage. The last person surviving in it gets a contract and you have to deliver the contract to a random place. But it's not that easy. Opponents will try to stop you. Deliver a set number of contracts to win. Stage Layout : Basically, the cage area is a large square with about 4 health pickups. On your way to the bottom area, flame jets will try to torch you.The furthest dock with the crates have an annihlator. Strategy : Shoot and grab the health. Repeat. If you did not get the contract, shoot and kill the person that has it to make him/ her drop it. If you have it, use turbo to deliver it before the opponents destroy you. -Royal Rumble- Goal : Get the crown before the time expires or get eliminated. As more people get eliminated, more people will also join in the fun. Stage Layout : The bottom area isn't that interesting, but the upper area is a large circle and contains a lot of weapons. Two crowns will appear each time. A beam of light shines on the crown. The arrow at top area of the screen points to the nearest crown. If it's red, that means no more free crowns and you'll have to kill an opponent to get a crown. Strategy : When you start, don't bother to use turbo. When you head up the ramp, ignore the arrow pointing right, leading to the crown. Instead, turn left and get the crown there. Then, it's all luck. Kill an opponent to make him/her drop the crown. There's always 2 crowns.(except last part). After you get the first crown, just keep going in circles, avoiding shots and picking up health and weapons. This match is more to luck. If someone else has the crown, fire all your weapons on him/her. If he/she explodes, pick up the crown and run. Don't blame me if the above strategy don't work. It always work for me somehow. -Running the Gauntlet- Goal : Get a set number of stars before others Stage Layout : You're at the rooftops, and it's easy to fall. There are ramps for you to jump to other roofs. There are also flame jets on the ramps. If you fall, you'll lose a star point. Take this opportunity to push high scorers to the bottom. Strategy : Very hard. One of the best strategy is stay in one area and wait for the star. Slow but it works sometimes. Also, push other people off to lower their score but be careful not to fall yourself. -Survivor Series- Goal : Eliminate the opposing team members to score a point. Score a set amount of points first to win. Stage Layout : On the streets. The main area has 2 beams of light to tag. In the middle is a Double Damage pick up. Nearby, there's a breakable window where you will get a grenade launcher. There's an annihlator behind a breakable window in the outer streets. Strategy : Don't hestitate to tag when you're low at health. The opponent will always tag when they're health bar turns red. To avoid that happening, try to bring the fight to somewhere far away from the light. -King of The Ring- Goal : Eliminate all the opponents as they come in 1 by 1. Stage Layout : It's like a coliseum. Around the statue, there's a double damage. The outer area has health pick ups. Around the outer areas, there are some small areas where you can find powerful weapons. Strategy : Just be careful and grab all the weapons. Also, if you need to, rush to the health pick ups before opponents reach it. when somebody comes in, keep shooting. When your health gets low, always rush to the nearest health pickup even if the opponent's health is lower than yours. -Battle Royal- Goal : Eliminate all other opponents before they eliminate you. Stage Layout : The middle area has trains rushing past. Hit the train once and you'll lose instantly. There are paths behind to allow you to go to other areas. Strategy : Avoid the train at all costs. Then just shoot away. When your health is low, avoid enemies and grab the health pick up before enemies eliminate you. -Bottom Line- Goal : Score a set number of KOs before your opponents. Stage Layout : To the left of the starting point is the helipad. There you can find grenade launchers, twisty rockets, health and maybe a turbo. Further along the helipad you'll find an atomic drop. Straight from the starting point is the main area. In it, you can find a ramming power and a few other weapons. Straight from the main area is a ramp leading up, but there's a hole in the middle of the ramp!! The outer, narrow area, has a few handy weapons including an annihlator. Strategy : My favorite area is the helipad mentioned earlier. Grab the twisty rockets and grenade launcher & stay there. When an opponent come near you, shoot the twisty rocket and the grenade launcher continously. If the opponent did not explode, they will most likely get the health pick up at the corner. When they do so, just ram them off the edge to the water, lowering their KO score or continue to shoot until they explode. -Final Battle- (not available in Exhibition mode) Goal : Defeat the all powerful Mr. McMahon Stage Layout : Same as King of the Ring Strategy : Damn hard. Vince has 2 health bars. The best way is to get all the powerful weapons and the double power and fire away. Get all the health before Vince does as well. By the time you destroy Vince's first health bar, you should have already filled your special meter. Shoot special for instant victory! If not, good luck destroying Vince. Or you could try taking the ramming power to the right from where you start, then turbo a few times on Vince. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 10. Other Stuff ========================= --Ads-- While you're progressing in Season mode, you'll view 3 ads. 1. Cooking with Kane - The screen shows Kane wearing a chef's uniform and standing next to a barbeque grill. The announcer will ask Kane what's today's food or something and Kane opens the grill cover. Inside it is.... dynamites! The announcer will get a shock and the dynamites explode. 2. Happy Pee Pee Smile - Edge (thanks to A Link Named Mandube) advertises a shampoo with a star, moon and octopus cartoon character. 3. Survivor - The cameraman shows Stacy Keibler and Trish Stratus trying to make a fire. The cameraman aims at Stacy's backside and Trish's chest. Both of the women get mad and the camera drops. Soon, the cameraman's spectacles drop to the ground. -More to come- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 11. FAQs ========================= Q: Who is the best character in the game? A: It's all based on your skills, but in my opinion, Brock Lesnar. Very powerful, and he shoot his special 3 times, and they home on to the opponents. Q: How do I make quick turns? A: Sometimes, an opponent will fire you without stopping from behind and by the time you turn around, you'll usually explode. To turn around quickly, use Power Slide. Press the reverse button and the powerslide button at the same time to turn around quickly. The powerslide can also be used to make quick turns to avoid enemies. Q: How do I win Demolition Derby mode easily? A: It's already easy as it is, but if you still have problems, try finding and picking up the ramming power. Ramming Power + Turbo= MAJOR damage. Q: I noticed that when you complete Season mode with a character, the character will be wearing a belt in the character select screen. Does this mean that you'll get something when you beat Season with everybody? A: Currently, nobody knows. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ========================= 12.
