It's hard to believe but you're right. People actually like the thing. It's all because the game is popular now with all the bad ratings. Oh well. Let them have their games, no matter how silly. :)

So have you ever liked any crappy games that everyone else hates? When I was 14, I used to play Dragonball GT Final Bout every day for 3 hours despite most calling it a slow piece of crap. Sure, it had no combos at all and the beams looked like crap, and sure every character was useless except for Goku, which took up 5 character slots and broke the game with two moves that allowed him to get 15 hits with ease, but I still loved the game.

Yup, the original RoboCop on the NES comes to mind. You can't jump in that game, and basically all you do is walk forward and shoot, as the bad guys will head in your direction. Sometimes they'll jump in the air as a way to attack, sometimes they'll ride by in motorcycles and jump in the air, and other times bad guys will come down from the windows in buildings, but you know what? I loved this game, and I probably still would love it if I could get it to work. It only had six levels, had some pretty cool guns, and I believe it could be completed in under 30 minutes, and it offered a fair challenge. Great game there.

I also remember playing WWF Warzone simply because there weren't any other WWF games with Stone Cold, The Rock, and Mankind. Man that game was horrible. Why they felt that you needed to press up, down, left, up, and circle just to preform a bodyslam, I just don't know. I never managed to pull off a Stunner simply due to the poor and unresponsive controls. The only thing that it had going for it was that it was a WWF game at a time where all the other wrestling games were WCW licensed.

Oh my GOD, I HATE WWF Warzone!!!!! I used to have that game, but a long time ago I tried selling it a yard sale. Where I live, there's a bunch of old people, so no one wanted it. Someone actually bought a torn up chair we were selling over some of the better stuff we were selling!

But THAT damn game... I think it was the extremely slow controls I despised. I wrote a review for it somewhere online (not here). Will try to find it and see what I wrote.

Well it wasn't all that bad. It had a great roster and the entrance music and... well it had Stone Cold!

Sorry but I can't stand it. I remember how after playing WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game for a few years and loving the fast speed and the accurate controls (and smooth and colorful animations) how disappointed I was with War Zone... which quickly turned to frustration! Die game, die!!!

I never liked WWF Wrestlemania, simply because I wasn't any good at Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter, which meant that I sucked badly at WM. Also didn't like the fighting game style of it, as it didn't seem much like pro wrestling to me. Way too arcady for my tastes.

I think WWF Wrestlemania: Arcade Game really stands apart today (in a good way) for being just an outrageous game with some of the most unrealistic moves ever in a WWE game.

Funny you compare it to the Mortal Kombat series (well, not funny- I mean interesting). I despite those old MK games just as much as War Zone, but for slightly different reasons. Those old MK games are so unfair and cheap on 1-player mode against the computer I can't stand them. I hate a game that doesn't give me any chance whatsoever to perform a move. Wrestlemania really does allow a lot of time to think, and I think you'd agree if you play the game for a while and get used to how it works. Mortal Kombat though, NEVER gets any easier. A cheap piece of crap!

The Mortal Kombat games were cheap as hell, with the AI pulling off 19 special moves in a row in every fight. It was far worse than Street Fighter in my opinion, which I at least beat a few times. I never got past the second battle in Mortal Kombat. Oh, and MIdway made both Mortal Kombat and WWF Wrestlemania, which is why I compared them. They even look alike, with the digitized characters and over the top moves.
