This commercial for WWF WrestleMania for the Nintendo NES is far more entertaining and fun than the lousy game it’s promoting.
Don’t believe me? Just check out Joe Gagne’s fantastic review of the game right here.
Remember that back then there was no Internet for us to find out if a game was bad or good. We were lucky if a video game magazine review was honest. So we were spending anywhere from $40 to $70 (depending on the game and where you bought it) to buy the game “blind” without any knowledge of if it was good or bad. It was a total gamble.
Don’t bother with this game. Play Pro Wrestling instead. In my opinion, it’s the best wrestling game on the NES.
Still, WrestleMania has music that I feel like I’ve heard somewhere else. Hmm…
Notice the guy at the end I call “Not The Macho Man”? They make it a point not to show his face. I bet you anything that they put some random guy in Randy’s sequenced robe and just had him dub his voice in later.
