#62: WWF Royal Rumble

Released In: 1993
Developers: Sculptured Software, Acclaim
Publisher: LJN

      Classic WWF action featuring Macho Man Randy Savage, Mr. Perfect, The Undertaker, Bret Hart, Tatanka, Crush, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, Yokozuna, Ted Dibiase, and Lex Luger.

Syd Lexia: WWF Royal Rumble has a great roster, too bad it's split between the Super Nintendo and Genesis versions. I would have cut Tatanka, Yokozuna, and Luger from this game, because they suck, and put in Rick Martel, Hulk Hogan, and IRS - all of whom appear in the Genesis version. You'd think they would have put Ted and Irwin in the same game, so that you could tag as Money Inc., but apparently the developers were fucking retards. Oh wait, the game was made by Acclaim and Sculptured Software... so the developers actually *were* mentally retarded. Now I feel kinda bad.

Valdronius: The best part about this game was the fact that new entrants to the Rumble always entered from alternating sides of the ring, and if you were the only wrestler in the ring, another would come in right away. That means it was really easy to grab a wrestler entering the ring, irish whip him into the ropes, then toss his ass right back out of the ring on the return trip. It sort of sucked the fun out of the game, but who else can say they won the Royal Rumble in under five minutes?

Douche McCallister: Ah, Razor Ramon, the single greatest wrestler of all time. ALL TIME! Basically just mash button until you overpower your opponent and put your finisher on ‘em. Beats the pants off WCW SuperBrawl Wrestling.

Knyte: Hey, let's name a game after a match that can have up to 30 wrestlers in the ring at once, even though we can only do six at a time in the game! At least the SNES verson had a better roster than the Genesis counterpart. The SNES got Mr. Perfect, Ric Flair, Ted Dibiase, Tatanka, and Yokozuna while the Genesis got stuck with Hulk Hogan, Jim Duggan, Rick "The Model" Martel, Irwin R. Schyster, and Papa Shango.
