No mercy can't touch 2000 story mode

>> No.4717679


2000 doesn't even have a story mode, "Road to Wrestlemania" is just random matches thrown at you with no context until you eventually win a title, the same as WCW/NWO Revenge. You can't be thinking of an AKI game as No Mercy was the first time a story mode appeared at all.

>> No.4717690

can i play this on an american n64?

also, no mercy is objectively the best wrestling game of all time. it's still fun as fuck to play today. the create a player mode is actually very robust. i've gone back and made aj styles, nakamura, daniel bryan, cm punk and a host of other "newer" wrestlers.

all of the n64 wrestling games are great. hell, it's pretty hard to make a bad wrestling game.

You can, NTSC/Jap N64's are basically identical. There's a translation patch for it online too if you go the emulation/flashcart route, it's a must play if you like the other games.

>> No.4718247

No Mercy is the best because each AKI wrestling game was an improvement over the previous one.

Now if you prefer WCW wrestlers or the cast of Wrestlemania 2k then yeah you might prefer a different AKI wrestling game since the improvements might not be enough than playing with your favorite wrestler but No Mercy is king.

Smackdown sucked, I only liked it because it had the actual titantron entrances and hell in a cell matches but besides those bells and whistles it was inferior.

>> No.4718257

a perfect emulation also emulates the slow down of any particular program. emulator coders just don't make shit faster for the fuck of it. the emulation must be close to spec as possible. if the original game slows down on real hardware, the emulation should do the same.

I'm not defending N64 emulation as a whole but the game really doesn't have any notable issues configured correctly, especially with Glide64.

>No, you dumb nigger, thats not the case. You play a full calendar year, all the way to your title bout at mania, if your good enough. Sounds like you just suck at these games while i demolish.

LOL, okay buddy. What's so great about that then? Like I said, it's got so little of consequence going on it can hardly be called a story mode at all. Even Smackdown 2's shits all over it for at least trying to have the occasional story thread.

>a perfect emulation also emulates the slow down of any particular program. emulator coders just don't make shit faster for the fuck of it. the emulation must be close to spec as possible. if the original game slows down on real hardware, the emulation should do the same.

Jesus Christ, how did we get on to this? I was replying to a guy who listed slowdown as a problem. If you'd personally rather it be there, that's fine, but most people who actually want to play the game don't give a shit. I can't believe you just wrote a paragraph trying to convince me slowdown is somehow good, I know what accuracy is, jackass.

I like that you can choose some heavy more counter-able attacks on weak grapple in 2000 which was taken out of No Mercy, allowing for full customization of a character. However I dislike that one can only attack from a running state, whereas in No Mercy you can choose attack or grapple (or roll away) from a running state. No Mercy also has more options for different positions on a grounded opponent depending on direction/side. However, the game with all the strengths of both 2000 and No Mercy and has more striking and submission options is Virtual Pro Wrestling 2.

Don't know, never had one, but I guess Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 is the best on the system.
I don't know if Shin Nihon Pro-Wrestling: Toukon Honoo Dou BRAVE SPIRITS and Shin Nihon Pro-Wrestling: Toukon Honoo Dou 2 - The Next Generation are any good, since these are just Yuke's games who are also responsible for those garbage WWE wrestling games of today and that Smackdown and SD vs. Raw trash.

SNES: Fire Pro Wresting XP Premium

Sega Saturn: Fire Pro Wrestling 6 Men Scramble

PS1: AJPW King's Soul and maybe Fire Pro Wrestling G, but the AJPW game is by far the best on the system. Best looking PS1 wrestling game and also best (timing based) fighting system, but sadly this was Human's last game.

Dreamcast: Fire Pro Wrestling D, Giant Gram 2000 (and to some extent Giant Gram 2)

(Not Retro, but...
PS2: King of Colosseum II, All Star Pro Wrestling III)

In the 80's and 90's, All Japan had the better video games than New Japan. New Japan though had the better Junior Heavyweights and Midcards. More puro fans can tell you about Kazuo Yamazaki and Shiro Koshinaka than they can about Tamon Honda or Masao Inoue.

Yuke's only had one good puro game, and that was Wrestle Kingdom 2.

The 2000's were a mixed bag for puro wrestling games. There were some great ones, but because of how poor the wrestling scene in Japan was, they had to be collaborative instead of how in the 90's you could have just one company promoting the game, which All Japan had the most success.

Hopefully New Japan will want to try to have another wrestling game. It just relies on Fire Pro Wrestling World's success with the New Japan DLC.

> Yuke's only had one good puro game, and that was Wrestle Kingdom 2

I don't know. After quitting the line of WWE games from Yuke's after SD vs. Raw for good (even before they started with the annual games) I wanted to give them another chance and ordered Wrestle Kingdom I

But I didn't find it that impressive. Yeah, it's using the Day of Reckoning engine that some compared to the AKI games, but I didn't like it at all. I didn't even like Day of Reckoning in the first place. Horrendous loading times (I'm talking about WK1), really awful edit and career mode

The roster of Wrestle Kingdom 2 looks awesome with so many true legends and current japanese stars, but the game mechanic was just so off putting with WK1 that I didn't bothered buying another Yuke's game and I haven't touched a single one of their games since

But I liked their Toukon Retsuden games on the PS1, at least until TR3. TR4 on the Dreamcast was meh. Bad roster and really bad GFX and animation for a DC game.

That's cool, I'm not a wrestling fan but I do love the games. Wrestling fits videogames well for me. The picture I made has almost all of my wrestling games. The only ones I forgot that I had were the NES Pro Wrestling & Tecmo Wrestling, the two GBA Fire Pro games, the 360 Rumble Roses XX, and 360's WWE All Stars most of which were not /vr/. I know there are so many other quality wrestling games I have missed out on, since I remembered enjoying one for the Saturn and a couple on the Dreamcast already mentioned in this thread. I am still trying to find the sequel to the Shin Nihon Pro-resu for the Super Famicom on the upper left.

Funny enough, with all the Saturn games I have, the hardest game for me to find was the Japanese release of WWF In Your House. I am most proud to have that one, as I spent a long time trying to find it, and I found it buried in a used bookstore. It was super cheap, but I swear the hardest commercially released game for me to find on the console.
