These have slipped out into retail stores early. I found one last night at a Walmart. They were not supposed to hit the streets untill October though, but I'm not complaining.

I've looked online for an official page for it, but all I could find was this on the Target web site. http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=br_1_43/601-1390186-3025751?%5Fencoding=UTF8&frombrowse=1&asin=B00074FYCI

It's got ten characters to start with, but it says you can buy a GAMEKEY to plug into it to unlock others. The ten it starts with are Triple H (Of course!), Batista, Cena, Eddie, Rey, Booker T, JBL, Kurt Angle, Kane, and Undertaker.

It's not shitty! The gameplay was decent enough with the controler being what it is, and the graphics were good enough that you can tell who's who.

Well wirth the $20, but it's still not as cool as the first one of these I bought with DIG-DUG which gets played every where I go. Seriously.

I picked one up today. I haven't been able to play it yet due to a lack of a screwdriver and some AA batteries, but here's a link to some screenshots...

Booker T looks like a SNES Ahmed Johnson.

Is he really billed in the game as "Triple HHH"?

"BOOKERT"? Couldn't they add the space between the Booker and the "T"?

It looks pretty dumb, but I'll wait for El Pescado to tell us how it runs before I conside buying one.

How does it play? It looks like the old SNES Royal Rumble game, which I love love loved.

I have to admit I've never heard of Triple HHH before. Does that stand for "Hunter Hearst Helmsley Hurts Humungous Hedgehogs" or something? (Hey, on short notice, you're lucky to get that, okay?)

Doesn't look half-bad, though. I agree that it reminds me a lot of WWF Royal Rumble on the SNES, but with better graphics.

No, that would be Double HHH.

It's kinda hard to rate this game on any kind of scale seeing how it's one of those plug and play dealies. I'd have to say it's better than the NES wrestling games, but not as good as the SNES ones.

Each wrestler has the same moves. Bodyslam, Suplex, Piledriver, DDT, and their specific finisher. I kinda wish they'd stuck on some midi theme songs, but the whole game has about two or three music tracks. Any match you wrestle is going to consist of punch, punch, suplex, suplex, piledriver, DDT, finisher, pin. The Crossface doesn't even tap out the opponent, you have to pin them afterwards. -_-;

It's great for what it is, but if you have a GameBoy Advance you'd probably be better off buying WWE Survivor Series or Fire Pro Wrestling.
