WWF In Your House (PS1)
Posted: August 12th, 2020, 8:21 am
Time now for a unique wrestling game, not too many people know about today: In Your House. Before this game there was Wrestlemania (an Arcade game), a good idea, but needed some fleshing out. Here you get 10 wrestlers: Ultimate Warrior, Vader, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Undertaker, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, British Bulldog, Shawn Michaels, Goldust, and Ahmed Johnson. This game plays both wrestling and Mortal Kombat style mechanics, meaning you not only do wrestling moves, but some wacky attacks including some projectiles for some. Ultimate Warrior can shoot electricity like Raiden, Bret Hart shoots what look like eye lasers, Undertaker hurls demons, and Goldust blows a smooch. You also get finishing moves called Super Pins which can range from Vader getting his derrière enlarged and squashes the opponent, Ultimate Warrior unleashes some lightning which causes the opponent to break apart (non gory), Undertaker sends his opponent to the grave, Hunter Hearst Helmsley sucking his opponent into a bottle of perfume, and Shawn Michaels causing a Hotel sign to crush the opponent. The arenas add some interest depending on the opponent, such as British Bulldog fighting at Buckingham Palace, Bret Hart's arena in some rustic cabin, Warrior out in the desert, Undertaker gets a medieval dungeon with some creepy things including one guy hanging on a noose. You'll hear Vince McMahon's commentary but occasionally you'll hear the respective wrestler's voices as well. "I'm here to take a bite out of the WWF!" "Feel the power of the Ultimate Warrior!" "I'm the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be!". When you complete it you only get a brief video of your respective wrestler and no story. Fun but not the greatest.
