Description official descriptions

WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game merges the personalities and action of the WWF TV show characters with a Mortal Kombat-style fighting game. This title features digitized graphics of 8 WWF superstars: Doink, Razor Ramon, Bret "Hit Man" Hart, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Yokozuna, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Lex Luger.

Although presented as a wrestling title, this game is structured like a one-on-one fighter, features over-the-top special moves characteristic of WWF. Each match is divided into a series of rounds, much like a fighting game. Instead of each round ending in a KO, it simply ends when the player forces the other wrestler(s) to fall by reducing their energy meter. Game modes include single player arcade mode, tournament mode, and versus mode for one-on-one multiplayer.

Lets get ready to rumble.

The Good
Its original. As opposed to normal wrestling games, this has been combined with a Mortal Kombat style game. So you see moves you'd never see the wrestling ring, its all been taken to the extreme.Also the first WWF game to feature commentary, by Vince McMahon, which is a nice touch.

The Bad
The fact you can only be six wrestlers. It really restricts the options available to you, on top of that, other ports of the arcade game had 8, so its a shame there couldnt have been more.

The Bottom Line
A fun wrestle-fest with an edge

Trivia

Cover art

Since the SNES version of the game lacks wrestlers Bam Bam Bigelow and Yokozuna, the line "Means This Is THE REAL YOKOZUNA!" that was under "DIGITIZED GRAPHICS" in the other versions' covers had to be changed to "Means Wrestlers Look Real!".
