It was one of my favourite games to play on the N64 as a child. Wrestlemania 2000 was one of my favourite games. A lot of people still think it’s one of the best wrestling games ever. There were other great wrestling games on that console, but this one was the best one.
As it turns out, there were a lot of great grappling games on the N64. Here are the top N64 wrestling games.
WWF War Zone
Perhaps because it was the first wrestling game for the Nintendo 64, War Zone is in the top 5. At the time, the game was great, and there’s no way around that. This is the first ever 3D pro wrestling game. It has a unique grappling system with button combination movies, and some pretty cool entrances.
There were a lot of different match types in War Zone, too. Hardcore matches could make things a lot more complicated. You could keep things simple with standard singles and tag team matches, or you could enter the chaos of a Royal Rumble, which was a game mode that only worked on the Nintendo 64.
Overall, there were 18 wrestlers to choose from, including big names like Kane, The Undertaker, The Rock, Triple H, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. There were a lot of wrestlers to choose from. Several big names are also on the roster, making War Zone one of the best N64 wrestling games. It also had a good successor in the form of WWF Attitude.
Virtual Pro Wrestling 2
Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 is one of the less-known wrestling games for the N64. It was made in Japan. What a game, too. Japanese pro wrestling fans will love this game for sure, but even people who don’t know much about it will enjoy it.
Its main attraction is the gameplay, which has a lot of different move-sets and ways to fight. There are a lot of wrestlers to choose from in VPW2. There are about 80 wrestlers in total, and each wrestler has a lot of different outfits to choose from. The Great Sasuke, Kenta Kobashi, and Hayabusa are some of the more well-known names in the game.
If you don’t know much about Japanese pro wrestling, you may not recognise most of the characters on the roster. That shouldn’t detract from the game, though. An all-around great grappling experience. This game is one of the best wrestling games for the N64.
As someone who was more into WCW back then, you might think that this is the best N64 wrestling game. You wouldn’t be wrong, either. It is the sequel to WCW vs. NWO: World Tour, which came out in 1997. In many ways, it was better than the original.
Revenge for the Nintendo 64 had a lot of new features, like ring entrances, ringside managers, a bigger roster, and better graphics. All of these things helped Revenge become one of the best selling games for the Nintendo 64.
In a good grappling game, you can play as Goldberg, Kevin Nash, and Chris Jericho. Also, there were a lot of fictional characters, and there was a pretty good tool for customising characters as well. Revenge is one of the most important wrestling games ever made. It’s also one of the best N64 wrestling games.
WWF WrestleMania 2000
There were some problems with Wrestlemania 2000, but by gosh (in the voice of Jim Ross), that was a lot of fun. It was the first WWF game made by THQ and made by AKI and Asmik Ace, who had worked on a WCW game before this one.
Part of what made WrestleMania 2000 so fun was how many different things you could do with the game. When you play “Create a Wrestler,” you can choose to make your own character, or you can choose to make a character like Hulk Hogan or Taka Michinoku that wasn’t in the game.
Cage and first blood games were added, as well as a system that made Stunners and Tombstone moves more fun to do than they had ever been before.
There is a story mode called “Road to Wrestlemania.” It’s hard, but it’s also rewarding and the only way to get some of the hidden characters like Dude Love, Shawn Michaels, and Paul Bearer, like Dude Love.
Try this game if you haven’t already. It’s a classic and one of the best wrestling games for the N64.
WCW Vs. World
When WCW vs. the World was made by AKI, it was made for PlayStation in the US in 1997. It was first released in Japan a year ago as Virtual Pro Wrestling, which had a lot of New Japan Pro Wrestling stars and a few WCW stars.
However, when the game came out in the West, all of the Japanese wrestlers’ names had to be changed because of copyright laws, even though they kept their looks. So even though it was sold as a WCW game, it was mostly a Japanese game. Japanese wrestling game WCW vs. The World was all about the gameplay and being as close to a 3D wrestling game on the PS1 as it could be, unlike later WWE Smackdown! games on it. The game’s engine would get better and more popular with AKI’s Nintendo 64 wrestling games, like WWF No Mercy.
WWE Day Of Reckoning 2
It came out on the Nintendo GameCube in 2005. In this game, it was the last WWE game that didn’t come from a PlayStation or Xbox game and wasn’t just a smaller version of the game. The game was made by Yukes, but some of the people who worked on Day of Reckoning used to work for AKI.
Day of Reckoning 2 has a grappling system like the AKI-made Nintendo 64 games mixed with Yukes’ wrestling engine. Only this time, the experience is better and more refined than the last time. Left shoulder button: To counterattack, press the left shoulder button. Right shoulder button: To back away from a grappling hook, press the right shoulder button. In addition, there are four types of submissions that each have different effects on stamina, momentum, and body part submissions.
