WWF Wrestlemania - The name says it all. The official license has both its advantages and disadvantages for the game designers. Much room for creativity concerning character design and playing modes does not remain, but these are of course advantages, either. Because well-known fighter "personalities" already exist to whom the followers of this "sport" connect different cliché attributes, the typically ridiculous plot of an average fighting game can fortunately not be found. Another point is that potential weaknesses of the playability will be easier looked over by the players because of the disciples' emotional link to their idols. The designers could therefore put all their efforts in a conversion as "real" as possible.

Amazing game, spent many hours playing it, and every time it was a great pleasure. Although, it may seem that it's a little too easy, even on the hardest difficulty (i would beat the game in every way), but something tells me if that were removed it wouldn't be as enjoyable. Dynamic, flexible, and quite relieving in times of fury ;)

Also, i don't think it really deserves the mark 4 of the rating. I give it a solid 5. I would definitely give it 6 if there were just a few more characters in the game, such as Hulk Hogan, Macho Man and The Warrior. For some reason these dudes weren't included, and Hulk alone was the legend of Wrestlemania, and he can't be missing here. Oh well, perhaps there was a good reason for it.

Tough decision for me as well. What really prevents it from a better rating for me is the unoriginal game modes, in the end. It's always just you against an increasing number of opponents. Give me a real tag team mode, a Royal Rumble… something!

If I'm not mistaken (and I'm certainly no expert), those guys had all left the WWF at that time, and they were signed up with the competition (the WCW). I think this lineup is actually not half bad. All of these guys are still fondly remembered, no complete duds which were on a failed hype streak.

Actually, this very thought had crossed my mind too a few times, however.. i don't think that should've been the reason to deprive the game of good characters. Why does it have to go hand in hand with the current to that time cast of WWF?.. I think that's a flaw.. they should've made a universal and independent WWF game... and spared the unneccessary precision.

I'm afraid all those names and characters are trademarked. Making an "all star – all times" game would be impossible without buying licences of all those rights owners :(

Oh right, right... sure, i forgot about that. Besides, those guys are in fact REAL GUYS captured on video and made into sprites for the game, and not simply drawn.. they all personally participated in this project i guess. I forgot that bit.
