Let us know your favorite wrestling games below.
Last video game I played was from ECW Anarchy Rulz and it was ok. I don't play that many games if they had a death match wrestling video game I would be playing every day.
I think the best video game would be SmackDown vs. RAW 2006.
It had a lot of realism, and the graphics were miles better than anything else produced during or before that period. But it didn't sacrifice the arcade style.
Most recent 2K games have sacrificed the ability to "pick up and play" in favor of simulation. It makes the game more technical, but kinds ruins the fun sprees of mayhem that were so prevalent in the earlier games.
Also, my first wrestling video game was probably WWF War Zone. At the time, I thought it was cool as fuck but seeing reviews and gameplays makes the game seem like a clunky mess. I also loved WCW Revenge. The roster was packed, the game was technical but fun, the battle royal was the greatest mode ever.
So yeah, too many to choose. lol.
I am not a huge gamer but when I do play I like realism. I like for the game to feel like I was one of the characters. I grew up with Atari and Commodore 64 so I love the old school games like fire pro wrestling and anything around 2001 invasion angle.
I like realism too, but keeping it simple is good. When you have to play for a couple of hours before getting the slightest hang of what you're doing, then it's harder to try and pick up and play again.
Smackdown Shut Your Mouth and HCTP are always the go to, imo. Had the RAW games on the original Xbox but they weren’t the same.
WrestleMania 21 was pretty good too, even though that’s the game that broke my Xbox.
SVR08 was the last great one I’d say, with WWE’13 being pretty close to good.
For years I would have said SVR06 was the best but I really would have to say WrestleMania 2000 for the N64 was the most fun and entertaining. It had a stacked roster and a really fun soundtrack.
Check that, I'd prob have to say WCW/neo Revenge. I had soooooo many good memories playing that game and I'm not even really a WCW fan over WWF. It just can't be beat in my mind.
