Wrestling is a popular sport today, but was even more popular in the 90s. This is a sequel to WWF Royal Rumble, another interesting game featuring real-life characters from WWE. I fought from one-on-one to one-on-six and sometimes the game was really challenging. Fighting in teams was even more interesting, with the smart AI controlling my opponents, but also my team mates. The game was ported on many platforms and sequels of it are still developed today, which says a lot about how popular this sport is.
GET READY TO RUMBLE WITH THE STARS OF THE WWF
Wrestling fans get ready to take it to the ring once again with an all-new, ringrocking adventure.
Let's take a trip inside the ring to find out what new features are included in this massive 24-Meg power cart. All of your favorite characters who haven't jumped ship and gone to the WCW, are waiting to perform their signature moves on you. Choose from any one of 12 of the finest grapplers in wrestling, with their own realistic performance attributes built into the artificial intelligence of the game. Speed, strength, stamina, weight, aggression, and style--all of these things are factored in, making this game very realistic, both inside and outside of the ring.
This game has everything wrestling fans will need, including special, super-human mega-moves that can be accessed with secret button combinations. Cannon balls off of the turnbuckles, and field goal kicks out of the ring can be I performed.
For those of you who enjoy tag-teaming action with your pals, WWF RAW is the first four-player wrestling game. Gamers can use the Sega four-person adapter and climb into the ring to slam it out. It's also the first time that a female wrestler has been included in a game.
The dreaded Luna Vachon is ready to launch her attacks against any one of the other 11 wrestlers in the game, including the 1-2-3 Kid, Bret Hart, Diesel, Doink, Lex Luger, Yokozuna, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, Owen Hart, and Lex Luger.
Gamers will be glad to know that the wrestlers can climb any of the four turn-buckles and take to the air in this solid WWF game.
This game was for 1 to 4 players. You did have a good roster of wrestlers. You had some new modes as well like survivor series elimination match Royal rumble, tagteam and singles. The wrestlers did have different moves and some had the same. Everyone did have a different finishing move.
Like previous games in the series, the basic moves include a punch and kick, which turn into kneedrops or elbowdrops when your opponent is on the mat. Aerial moves like hip-tosses, dropkicks and clotheslines can be performed while your opponent is running toward you. Moreover, you can use flying elbowdrops, climb turnbuckles, leave the ring at any time (even grab a chair), and perform illegal moves such as eye gouges and chokes. If the referee is bothering you, go ahead and knock him out with a well timed punch or kick!
The wrestlers look very much like their real-life counterparts, with detailed outfits and recognizable hair styles. While the game's appearance is similar to WWF Royal Rumble, the characters move very fast and fluid.
The speed is almost too fast! An adjustable speed and a better grappling system are needed to improve the game's score in this area. Playing with three other friends in the ring is very fun!
