The Ultimate Maniacs continue their push for tag team glory in WWF Wrestlefest. Watch me play the greatest wrestling game ever (I can’t say that enough) while I try to go through all of the 80’s wrestling trivia that I can remember. Is everything I say historically accurate? Probably not. But I bet you won’t Google it.
There was absolutely no way that I could play WWF Wrestlefest for one 10 minute episode and be one with it. The only possible option was to make a run at the tag team championship on Saturday Night’s Main Event. It took a quick restart but I eventually got things going with the Ultimate Maniacs. Join me as I take a walk through wrestling history in part 1 of my quest to achieve tag team glory!
As much as I enjoyed WWF Superstars, it does not hold a candle to WWF Wrestefest. It does everything the first one does times 100. The graphics, the moves, the gameplay. It is a perfect wrestling arcade game in my humble opinion. Watch me try to keep from giggling with joy as I play Royal Rumble mode with one of my favorite 80’s wrestlers, Earthquake! Enjoy!
Main Event Time! The Mega Powers are the new number 1 contenders and are set to face Ted Dibiase and Andre the Giant for the tag titles I didn’t know they had in a rematch of Summerslam ’88. Andre in this game might be the first really tough boss in a video game that I remember (I never got to Mike Tyson in Punch Out!). You definitely need a load of quarters to get through these guys. Luckily I’m home and have unlimited credits. I have a good feeling about this. Enjoy!
If you have read this blog during its first run it wouldn’t take long for you to figure out that I am a wrestling fan. More specifically, I’m an old school wrestling fan. That’s why this game was such a big deal to me. WWF Superstars was the first WWF Arcade game and by 1989’s standards they pretty much nailed it. Watch my climb to the top of the tag team division as I lead the Mega Powers to glory. The final match however was so epic (and honestly so long) that it had to be it’s own video. Come back next week for part 2!
