WWF Super WrestleMania (SNES) – Free and unblocked game (NO ROM) to play online
WWF Super WrestleMania (AKA WWFスーパーレッスルマニア in Japan) for the SNES (1992) is among the earliest wrestling titles. With that, you shouldn’t expect it to be like its modern counterparts that try to recreate every aspect of the sports entertainment industry.
Still, there’s enough in it to make it a true wrestling game. There are pin-based mechanics, attacks and grapples, and multiple match types. There are even pre-match intros.
Despite the SNES’ limited graphical capabilities, you won’t have trouble recognizing who’s on the screen. The character selection menu, for example, has these fairly detailed portraits of wrestlers.
While the roster is rather small (which is again to be expected, given the console’s limitations), it does feature some of the most iconic wrestlers—such as Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, and Randy Savage.
Even during in-ring action, you won’t have any problem knowing who’s who. Every character is detailed, especially in terms of attire. There’s no denying that the game’s visuals is far superior to those of its NES counterpart.
Unlike other wrestling titles from the same era, WWF Super WrestleMania feels rather slow. Attacks don’t feel like they’re executed at the right moment. Holds don’t transition smoothly into grapples.
It’s possible that they were trying to add a sense of realism to the game, but it only affected things negatively. Saturday Night Slam Masters, for example, features a faster pace and is considered by many as a better choice.
Still, if you’re a wrestling fan, you’ll definitely have fun trying your favorite matchups. And the pace might be less of an issue if you aren’t that into fighting games.
Those control issues are somewhat offset by the game’s excellent sounds. Every action you do creates an appropriate sound, and the entrance themes were accurately recreated.
If the game had grunts or commentary, it would have been so much better—but these things are probably impossible to carry out even on the then-cutting-edge SNES console.
Of course, it isn’t fair to skip over the game’s impressive match variety. You’ll have the chance to choose from one-on-one, tag team, and Survivor Series. The last one is clearly an achievement for the game’s developers.
If you’re a wrestling fan (or at least interested in it), don’t hesitate to try WWF Super WrestleMania. Though not the best in its genre, it’s still impressive in some ways—and definitely has that nostalgic charm.
WWF Super WrestleMania game has been ported to Arcade, Mega Drive / Genesis, SNES (this version), Sony PlayStation, Sega Saturn, Ms DOS, Sega 32X.
