The last couple of weeks, I've really gotten into N64 for some reason. I figure it's time I try some of the wrestling games out. Aside from a couple of days playing Legends of Wrestling on PS2, I haven't really played any wrestling games since Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium (I think I got that right) for SNES. I briefly played some WWF game on PS1 years ago that I didn't like but don't remember which one it was, now.

I've seen a lot of comments around here about various N64 wrestling games, so I'm wondering which ones I should try. I don't care if it's WWF or WCW, just interested in trying out a game that's fun to play. Do any of the games have any sense of a storyline or are they all pretty much straight combat? Any of them have any particularly neat special features that others don't have?

I'm about to start playing Paper Mario (was playing Conker's Bad Fur Day but stopped when I learned about the impending X-Box version) but once I finish that, I'll probably turn my focus to a wrestling game, if I can find one I like. So, what does everyone suggest?

Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 from Japan is the best. It has over 100 guys, hundreds of things to unlock, and a really good shootfighting mode. Besides that one, I'd go with Wrestlemania 2000. It doesn't have as much as No Mercy, but will be cheaper, and I just enjoy it more for some reason.

No Mercy won't be that much more expensive than WrestleMania 2000. I think No Mercy is the second best wrestling game ever (right behind HCTP), and is a must have for any N64 library.

Well, price isn't exactly an issue. Nor is availability, since I can easily get any of the games at any time. But you didn't hear that from me!

WCW/nWo Revenge is a classic if you want a WCW game. Probably my favorite game of the era (it made for great parties). Plus, looking on Amazon, you can get it for under $2.00, so...hey. Why not?



Wisconsin Badgers: 6-3 (A Bye Week means you can't lose.)


Minnesota Vikings: 6-2 (Unless your other team is playing piss poor this week.)

You can't really go wrong with any of the AKI games. (I actually prefer Wrestlemania 2000 to No Mercy, and the roster's gonna be dated on either version...)

And the cool thing about WCW/nWo Revenge - the roster reads like a current WWE game. Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Eddy Guerrero, Booker T, Scott Steiner, Rey Mysterio Jr, Chavo Guerrero Jr, Goldberg, Kevin Nash, The Giant/Big Show, Eric Bischoff, Kanyon, Ultimo Dragon, etc.

VPW2 is by far the best. It's an import, so you'll probably have to look for it on eBay. Mask editor, a ton of hidden legends (Dory & Terry Funk, Andre, Brody, Tsuruta, etc.), voiced introductions. Just an awesome game.

As for US games, WCW/nWo Revenge is great, and both WM2000 and No Mercy are awesome, too. I wouldn't get any games earlier than Revenge, though.

i'd have to pick nwo/wcw revenge as my favorite. sure it didn't have a lot of the nifty entrances or CAW features of the subsequent wwf games, but i always found the (wcw) wrestlers had more variety and flashier move sets. which is always a good thing in a video game. that and both the main event level and (at the time) midcard guys are pretty awesome. revenge had guys like raven and reyrey for midcard, wm2000 had like albert and road dogg. just my thoughts though.



it says so right here in the wcw handbook!

I own both No Mercy and WM2000. I really didn't like the WCW games, the engine is the same, but they tweaked it a lot before moving onto the WWF. The game is very simple and easy to get into, but actually pretty deep. Its all about blocking, or moving backwards to avoid a grapple, and then it all depends on timing and guesswork. Laddermatches are the best(No Mercy), with two good players, they can last up to a half hour. Add a third person, and you are looking at an hour(if you can even finish).
Triple Threat matches are also a lot of fun with good players. First pin wins(you have to play a "Rumble" to play last man standing). You can break up other people's pins or submissions, so you always gotta knock both people out. Playing the computer, no matter how good he is, is nothing like playing good friends(not that that is different from any other game).
The one player mode in No Mercy is really really long, and the 1 player mode in WM2002 is simple and boring. Oh well.

Is Abdullah the Butcher in VPW2, per chance? If so, I'll definitely have to try it.

I just picked up No Mercy used a couple of months ago and really enjoy it. One nitpick, it's too damn hard in story mode! I've been working on the cruiserweight title and do pretty good until I get to the final match in the story, then I get my head handed to me. Is there something I'm missing?



Are you ready for Mahkan-mania to run wild all over you?

Just finished playing No Mercy for the first time and I think I'm going to like it. The fact that I was able to pull off several moves without having to read the instructions puts it high above a lot of other wrestling games I've played. It did take me a little while to figure out how to go for a pin, but that's because I always forget about the damn L & R triggers. But hey, Crash Holly beat Stephanie McMahon, so I have a warm fuzzy feeling about the game now. So I guess it's time to read the instructions and jump head on into Story Mode. Thanks for all the input.

The N64 games are incredibly easy to control, at least the ones by THQ. Don't ever get any Akklaim game, though; the system is pure crap. Who in the hell goes uses

That post makes much more sense now that I'm reading it in the edit box.

I'm still bitter towards the WCW game for NES that I could never land a single freakin' move on. Random fact, that game wasn't a WCW game in Japan, it had made up cartoony characters and was called Superstar Pro Wrestling.

I have a soft spot for WCW Backstage Assault, even though it was a crappy game; I liked unlocking characters, and having both Lance Storm and Shane Helms in there isn't a bad thing; it's a good thing.

It's a really crappy game, even worse than the Akklaim (or is that Acclaim?) WWF games for the N64, but it can be a lot of fun if you can get over the horrible detection and graphics, etc. etc. etc.
