Oh, it's true. It's true. No Mercy is everything we expected - a big pile of shit. Just kidding. Kurt Angle would definitely approve of THQ's WarZone-smashing WWF No Mercy.
Everything from the steviekick to the pedigree (two wrestling finishing moves from the WWF) is included in this game.
First off, the ladder match is an outstanding addition to THQ's line-up. From the ladder, you can swanton bomb (diving head butt with a mid-air flip) to the Spanish announcer's table, taking the action outside of the ring, where most of the fun happens thanks to the ringside weapons. Weapons don't magically disappear if you drop them, either.
The championship mode, divided into seven different belt categories, involves earning money for each match you win. The only drawback of this mode is the extreme time commitment required to fully create a character. However, we shouldn't complain, considering that you can create the character right down to the moves, taunts, clothes, sex, and signature music entrance.
Controls are much easier than in Acclaim's games, which require a series combos for some mere basic moves. No Mercy offers the same controls for all characters, but the results of particular button sequences are different for each character.
Fans of wrestling can give themselves a wet dream by getting this game and logging onto these sites:
