Are Wrestling Games As Fun As They Could Be?

Ian Fisher writes: The thing about the overall legacy of wrestling games to date, in particular the WWE titles, is that they essentially dragged things out too much to the point where even the biggest marks were ready to bail out.

Some gamers were still happy with the core product and enjoyed whatever new roster additions that may have been added, but for the most part wrestling games stopped evolving by 2007.

They are ok. But I find is strangely fascinating that games on current generation hardware still can't hold a candle to the classics such as No Mercy.

For NM to be an N64 game it was a blast. WWE 12 is fun but it's missing a lot of features that the older games had. For example, in WWE 12' Rey Mesterio can pick up Mark Henrey and do a Suplex. That should NOT be possible.

WWE All Stars is the "fun" wrestling game. If they make a sequel and make it a bit tougher they can have my money.

WCW/WWF N64 wrestling games were limited by Nintendo using Cartridges. But despite its greatness, Here Comes The Pain had a million flaws that should of been addressed in the Vs Raw series. Instead THQ switch the formula to horrible results.

Day of Reckoning on the GameCube! Had way too much fun with that game. They tried to implement breaking up grapples mid move in WWE 12' but nothing compared to WWE Day of Reckoning
