"A winner is you!"
3 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Before there were the "next gen" wrestling titles such as WCW/nWo Revenge and WWF titles SmackDown! and WrestleMania 2000, there was the greatly entertaining game "Pro Wrestling"! This NES game, which is a generic wrestling title {it has no "pro" license, such as WCW, WWF, or ECW}, features the typical 1980's wrestling fare; a masked Mexican wrestler, a self-loving narcessist, and a half-man/half-piranna grappler known only as "The Amazon". The game is highly entertaining, and features a surprisingly large move-set, with each wrestler having his own style. Starman, for instance, has a Cruiserweight, lucha-libre type moveset, while The Amazon has mainly "brawler" type moves. The producers of the game made it a point to give the game nice little details, such as the in-ring ref, the announcers in the background {who don't actually say anything}, and even a camara man on the outside of the ring that moves to keep up with the wrestlers.

In the game, you wrestle your way through the ranks of VWA {or something}, until you win the World title. You then get to contend for the World title of another federation.

The controls are very nice. The game runs on a "grapple" control system {i.e. you initiate a grapple, then push a button or two to do a move}, and is relatively easy to learn.

The game basically has 2 features: 1 player and 2 players. There are only singles matches, no tag team or anything like that. Still, the game has great replay value, and is best when played with a friend {or enemy} on 2 player mode.

Overall, Pro Wrestling provides a very nostalgic look at wrestling games and video games in general. It's poor translation also provided for the absolute best line ever in a video game: "A winner is you!" Buy this game if you can, it's a real gem as far as Old Skool NES games are concerned.
