Tecmo World Wrestling
The latest wrestling game to hit the market is Tecmo's World Wrestling. World Wrestling doesn't have the endorsement of an association, but there are several different fighters to choose from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The action unfolds both inside and outside of the ring, with few rules and a number of specialty moves expanding the scope of the game. A commentator describes the action as it takes place within the scrolling ring.
Tecmo World Wrestling is another straightforward wrestling simulation. The ring announcer takes up a lot of space and "talks" so quickly you can't read half of what's said. The game is well executed, however, with a number of animation and moves that are easily performed.
An unusually well done wrestling game. Offering a large selection of moves, this game could have been another me-too wrestler. Throw in smooth animation, detailed cinema close-ups and top it off with a commentator and you end up with a wrestling game to buy even if you already own one.
Another good wrestling game for the NES. Tecmo has graphics that are above-average, but the wrestlers could have had a bit more detail. Training screens are a nice touch. It is difficult to perform some special moves, but all in all it's not a bad wrestling game.
Tecmo Wrestling is probably the best I've seen so far. It doesn't have an organization endorsement, but what it lacks in name it makes up for in game. Tecmo has beefed this normal sports game up with cinema displays and multiple options. The commentator doesn't work, but it's a fun game.
