This game was the first in the triphecta of Amazing wrestling games for the N64. Along with Wrestlemania 2000 & No Mercy. Yes, WCW/nWo World Tour came before it, but Revenge is where it Really refined and took off.

I thought these games still held out better then the Smackdown games for Playstation. I liked the controls better for the N64 games.

Wrestlemania 2000 and No Mercy definitely improved upon what Revenge brought, but damn, I've lost hours (probably collective years) playing all three over the years.

I think the Smackdown license has been a bit watered down and lost some of its impact in the last few years. But I can't speak TOO much, I haven't touched one since '08, I think? It's been a while, but even by then I was getting tired of the same ideas being reused every year.
