    Kind of short, but I guess not too much can be said about wrestling games. Are there any digitized voices in these games? How do they compare?

    I never played Royal Rumble having learnt my lesson with Super Wrestlemania.
    One of the images has the "Screen Shot Saved" captured by GENS.

    Royal Rumble did better on Genesis than Super Wrestlemania. The graphical differences are small, but Super Wrestlemania looked like a different game on SNES.
    But I´ll never understand why Acclaim bothered to change the roster from version to version.

    Any game without The Adorable Adrian Adonnis is crap.

    These games were quite looked down upon by reviewers. I suppose wrestling fans liked them at the time. Wrestling games always were poor untill the late 90's when they went to 3D and become somewhat playable, realism improved making things feel a lot better. I believe it was WWF Warzone that set the new standard for wrestling games.

    the megadrive version sounds like ways better it doesnt sound as underwater as snes,plus the megadrive version lets you hear the real suff like it should be in a wrestel game guitar stuff*BTW not the greatest but stil)the lack of guitar in many snes games is just pitty somethimes in some games youlle just need it and not and aquatic kind of symphonic beat.BTW the game sucks anyways.

    I had a lot of fun with Royal Rumble back in ye olde day, but I've really grown tired of the button mash. It's just not a fun way to settle grapples.

    I prefered the SNES versions sound. It sounded less synthetic. Some wrestlers themes like Mr Perfect´s or Randy Savage´s were fully orchestrated in the original, and the MD just couldn´t handle those.
    Maybe I only noticed it because I was a huge wrestling fan back then.

    Both versions sound absolutely horrible in every way (judging by the supplied MP3s).

    I have to disagree! WWF WrestleFest for the arcade would have made an awesome port for a 16 bit system! Additionally, the old NES "pro wrestling" game was quite good.

    Atleast someone realized I was talking about the site and not just acting like I made the word up.

    I still remember when that place first started too.
