WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game for the SEGA Genesis developed by Midway and published by Sculptured Software.

As the title suggests, WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game was originally released to arcades. And unlike virtually every other WWF release at the time, it is more of a fighter than a wrestling game. In fact, WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game has more in common with Mortal Kombat. It’s a combo-based fighter where players have a simple and decidedly un-wrestling objective—drain your opponent’s health down to zero to win. No need for pins or submission moves. Just fight. The game also features over-the-top moves that showcase the wrestlers’ character and gimmicks. Lex Luger’s arm turns into steel, bats soar from the Undertaker’s strikes—Doink even loses some whoopee cushions from time to time. WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game is a single-player and local multiplayer game.

This video review features video gameplay footage of WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game for the SEGA Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

    “I’d love to see a new WWE game with this kind of gameplay” Isn’t that more
    or less WWE All-Stars?

    Daniel bryan will probably win to make up for last years rumble. Fans were
    pissed he wasn’t in it.

    Bryan has to win because he never lost his title. Roman Reigns just doesn’t
    have it yet. I mean he’s in a feud with the Big Slow.

    One of my favorite WWF Games. The saturn version is fantastic though. But
    the arcade is awesome because it has The Fink.

    Unlike other wrestling games of its era, this WWF fighter is more like
    Mortal Kombat than WrestleMania.
