Game: WWF Smackdown (PlayStation)

The advent of the McMahon-Helmsley era, The Rock 'N' Sock Connection, and a complete revamp of The Undertaker. Then along comes Smackdown!.

Game: WWF War Zone (Nintendo 64)
Posted: March 28, 2011 (03:05 PM)
The World Wrestling Federation was undergoing a major facelift as the late 1990's came around. Ridding itself of the stale, 'family friendly' legacy from the decade before, it stood up to growing competition from both WCW and ECW and began offering a far more cut-throat, near-the-knuckle product. The Federation's last video game release, In Your House in 1996, couldn't have been further removed from this. It was time for developer Acclaim to redeem itself...

Game: WWE Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth (PlayStation 2)
Posted: September 10, 2010 (05:08 PM)
The early 2000ís were a time of change for the mainstream professional wrestling business, with the World Wrestling Federation dissolving its main competition, and then getting into a tussle of a legal mould with the World Wildlife Fund, in which the sports entertainment mega power would come out on the losing side.

As if 1995's WrestleMania: The Arcade Game wasn't enough Mortal Kombat style 'fun' in the guise of the World Wrestling Federation superstars, Acclaim came back the following year!

Game: WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game (Sega 32X)
Posted: August 13, 2010 (11:42 AM)
For wrestling fans, WrestleMania defines the sport. It is the single biggest event in the calendar, and, for more than a quarter of a century, has promised big matches, big celebrities, and a few hours of quality sports entertainment.

The 1989 Batman movie completely refreshed the image of 'The Dark Knight'. If anything, the character had slowly begun to fade into obscurity (in visual form, at least) throughout the 70's and 80's, thanks to the awfully cheesy and twee 60's Adam West TV carnation.

Game: Showdown: Legends of Wrestling (PlayStation 2)
Posted: August 09, 2010 (04:15 PM)
When most of them were lacing up their boots, there was never the prospect of them being immortalised in a video game. So it felt only right to go back in time and revitalise some of the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling, showcasing them to a whole new audience for, perhaps, the first time.

Game: WWF Raw (Genesis)
Posted: August 09, 2010 (12:38 PM)
The wrestling genre, as portrayed on home consoles, always lacked depth at this point. Games featured few characters, few modes, and few moves. They offered little satisfaction other than beating your friend by mashing and maiming your controller quicker than they did.
