WWF No Mercy (N64): Would you like to play another game Monsieur? No Merci!
23 March 2011
Summary: No Mercy was a huge hit when it came out in 2000. The graphics are pretty sharp for the time, and the gameplay is good - easy to control, but hard to master, as there are moves like block, or reverse which may take a bit of time to master. You can play the game for hours and hours since there are so many things to complete on it. The wrestlers' faces are briliantly made, with each looking like the real guy! There arms are a bit blocky though...
Pros: The best wrestling game ever made - so much to do, hours of fun ahead of you!
Summary: The best wrestling game to hit the N64 since Wrestlemania, No Mercy is huge. There are over 65 wrestlers including the ate Andre The Giant and Shawn Michaels, with a fabulous Create-a-wrestler mode. More options than ever before! More than 10 Arenas, from No mercy to Armageddon to wrestlemania, with backstage areas such as a bar and changing room. Many game modes such as Ladder, TLC, Tag etc. and an excellant story career mode.
Summary: Up until the Smackdown games really started getting their momentum, the N64's No Mercy game was regarded as the best wrestling game ever made. Looking back, it's not so hot, but it's still a great game with many outstanding visuals. One of them is not the graphics, though; the arenas look great and some of the objects do too, but the actual wrestler models are diabolical.
WWF No Mercy (N64): The Greatest Wrestling Game Of All Time?
9 September 2009
Summary: It's been a while since there was a really good wrestling game, but lets not forget the time when there was some great games in the genre. For those than can remember the early THQ published wrestling games on the N64 they will be able to remember a time when wrestling games we're fun to play, limited but fun. Starting with the original WCW game (WCW v NWO: World Tour) based on the then huge World Champion Wrestling and it's major faction of the time the New World Order.
Pros: Playability, Story Mode, Backstage, Characters
Excerpt: "I have a collection of over 30 wrestling games! The PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, PS1, N64, Super Nintendo and others! Yet even though there have been many games out after the N64, No Mercy is the best game that was EVER brought out! To some they may not like it because the graphics are ppo to the standards of the Xbox or PS2 now. But any true wrestling fan would have to admit that this game Kicks any wrestling games ASS hands down! there are lots ...
Summary: When THQ developed their engine for WCW/n.W.o. World Tour, we knew they were on to something. A wrestling game without an energy bar…like it should be. Finally, a game where the player couldn’t be whittled down to unconsciousness and pinfall by moves that should never pin a wrestler. Like in Wrestlefest, when a backdrop would take a quarter of your energy. Instead, we run on spirit.
Pros: Great Season feature, Encourages you to finish the game completely, Great Fun
WWF No Mercy (N64): No Mercy continues AKI's dominance in the wrestling game ...
29 January 2002
Summary: It's obvious, even before No Mercy was released, that AKI dominates the wrestling computer games market, not only in terms of sales but in terms of quality. Acclaim and others have tried and failed, WWF Attitude was appalling, and nothing on the excellent WWF Wrestlemania 2000. Therefore, even though this is a new game and some fans might like to see a total change from the prequels (WCW/NWO World Tour, WCW/NWO Revenge, WWF Wrestlemania), it's actually much to my glee...
Pros: Keeps the old control system with a few tweaks, all of which improve the game, Lots of options, nice new credits/money idea, The 3D (double grapple off the ropes) looks fantastic!
Cons: Backstage area brawls a big disappointment, Billy Gunn is in it, but Raven and Regal aren't....???, Some moves have unrealistic damage ratings
Excerpt: "...let me tell you about WWF No Mercy, one of the more popular wrestling titles for the slowly fading Nintendo 64 game console. The idea is simple: Take the World Wrestling Federation's stars, put them into a game, and let one or two players fight - versus each other or the computer. There is a storyline (albeit a rather dull and lame one involving mild profanity and little variation from character to character), which changes depending on whether ...
Pros: This game is a lot of fun if you're in the mood to bash somebody .
Cons: This game is weak where content is concerned .
Summary: Wrestling there isn’t really much to say about it , a bunch of sweaty Americans having a play fight, not really my sort of entertainment. So you can understand that at first I was quite sceptical about getting No Mercy, but I wanted a fighting game and let’s face it the only other kinds of beat em ups available for the N64 are either cartoon button bashers or Xena the Warrior Princess.
