It Came From YouTube: WWF Super WrestleMania is Super Mediocre.

You’d think that the first 16-bit Super Nintendo WWF game would have all kinds of great new features.

And you’d be wrong, as Joe Gagne explains in his review of WWF Super WrestleMania.

    A great special feature would be Quit-a-Sid mode for when softball season was approaching. You could choose “A” to quit your high paying job to play softball or push “B” to quit your high paying job to play softball.

    I think Super Wrestlemania was actually quite good for it’s time. Yes after all the NES games ranged from dreadful to mediocre, I may have given the SNES game more credit than it deserved but the Survivor Series mode was really fun and was my favourite part of the game. Considering they haven’t really been able to replicate this in many of the WWF/E games that followed, that’s pretty telling.

    It had great graphics and control that was certainly much better than anything the NES WWF games offered.

    Royal Rumble dropped the Survivor Series and naturally had the Royal Rumble feature and Raw was easily the best of the SNES WWF games. WWF: The Arcade Game was butchered on the SNES but the Arcade/PS and even the Genesis ports were still solid.

    The sequels were the same thing only better so there’s no reason to bother with this one. RAW had better features, but Royal Rumble had the overall superior (though less WrestleCrappy) roster.

    RR was the middle ground in this game.

    I remember that my friends and I invented our own finishing move on the SNES version. We’d run from rope to rope before delivering an elbow drop to a prone opponent. That would never really catch in on in a real wrestling ring though.
