(A warning, this post was to come out Monday the 22nd but didn’t cause human error. Huzzah!)
Hello Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Grab A Buddy Monday. Some of you may know that tonight is the 25th Anniversary of Monday Night Raw. Me personally, I’m excited to see some of my favorite old school wrestlers tonight. So who are you hoping to see tonight? Is it Steve Austin? Maybe it’s Bret Hart. Better yet, maybe you want to see the dead man himself, The Undertaker, to see if he will have one more match at Wrestlemania. Well whoever it is, hopefully that person willbe there tonight. In the meantime, grab your buddy, hook up your PS1, and let’s play some WWF War Zone.
This game is one of the best wrestling games of its time. It’s very easy to pick up and play. The rosters is very stacked. With guys like Taker and Austin, Triple H and Shawn Michaels representing DX, Faarooq and the Rock representingthe Nation, and Bret Hart you have plenty of choices. Odd thing, this game came out in the Summer of 1998, the Montreal Screw job happened in November of 1997, so it is odd to see Bret Hart and the British Bulldog in the game.(if you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it!)
There are a good amount of match types to play though. Tornado tags, hardcore, and cage matches along with the roster size, will give you and your buddy hours of fun. There is commentary in the game. Once again Vince McMahon gives us some shitty commentary, luckily it’s short, and Jim Ross is there to cover his ass. There is also some voice over from all the wrestlers in the game, so you will hear them grunt, scream out in pain, and drop a few phrases. Even if tonight wasn’t the 25th anniversary of Raw, this game is good to pick up and play anytime.
