Whats the deal with the reversal system? I know if you not in hit stun you can block/parry and dodge/tech as long as it time your block or dodge. But what about being in hit stun? I've done it before but it seems like the timing is stricter.

Some blowhard I know has offered me a bet. We'll play a single 1v1 match and it's his $100 against my $1. I've never played this game before but I played a lot of casual Revenge back in the day and I'll get at least 1 match to warm up/practice. He says he's great at the game, but really he thinks he's the best at everything ever and I guarantee he's never played a competitive match against anybody decent.
I'm pretty sure I have a chance, right? Assuming I get some good advice, that is.
Who should I pick and how should I fight?

No Mercy stands as one of my favorite 64 games. Not to mention favorite wrestling game. I used to make CAW's focused on arm damage and have 8 seconds magic (or w/e that standing arm submission special was called) as the finisher. Great times. I pissed some friends off with submissions though

The APA match wasn't so bad. Just make sure they didn't get you to the back and keep throwing them out of the ring. Is was a total grind though

Actually I prefer to get them to the back. Throwing them into the wall does a lot of damage, and keeps them down for longer than throwing them out of the ring does early on in the match. First time they offered protection I agreed. Didn't know it would cost me the money I was saving for the Cobra Clutch....

For Survival mode, pick someone with a powerful and cheap strike. Bradshaw's my pick. Just keep Hammering away, don't forget to irish whip your opponents and hit them as they rebound off the ropes to get them on the apron -> easy elimination. My personal record in that mode is about 100. Easy way to unlock Mae Young, Jerry Lawler, Ken Shamrock and such...but you're better off going through Championship mode to get HBK, Andre and Vince unless you've got your technique down absolutely pat.

Was No Mercy the wrestling game that had a combination of famous Japanese wrestlers in additional to the WWF superstars?

Just wanted to give a huge thanks to everyone in this thread!
I just came back from Maffew's No Mercy tournament at Magfest, which had a full 32-man bracket and was bigger than SF4 there. Despite not having played the game in like 10 years, I came in 2nd with X-Pac! I somehow managed to beat someone (an Undertaker) who was 10x better than me at the fundamentals, but lost in the finals to an Austin who just kept countering all my offense on reaction. Still did better than I expected, and it was well worth the day spent there!
I feel like X-Pac doesn't necessarily belong in a tier of his own - his crappy strikes make it hard for me to get anything going on people who counter well. Austin does much better in that regard and also has the sleeper, so that matchup seems like it could be fairly even. X-Pac's matchups vs. superheavyweights are what keep him at #1, I think. X-Pac/Austin/Andre for top 3 imo.

I used to code hack these games with game shark. There was a pretty cool community back then, the collective knowledge of which could answer any technical question you could conceive of.
I never played it competitively though because I hated how the end result looked nothing like a wrestling match.

I have a question, how exactly does Benoit rank in this game. I used to watch playthroughs with people doing speed runs with Benoit because he had the highest stats of any wrestler in the game....
Red Lotus, post: 7941587, member: 5634 wrote:
Stats aren't as important as the moves themselves. Benoit has pretty good high flying moves and grapples, but his basic strikes are about average, which puts him at a disadvantage against someone like Jericho or Bradshaw who have really good strikes.
Honestly, if I remember correctly Bradshaw has pretty shitty stamina. I am not sure how much of a advantage his strikes would put him at over someone like Benoit.
Any videos of high level play for this game?

I have a few questions. First, what exactly are Irish Whip combos? I probably know the answer to that but I'll ask anyway. Secondly, what went into making this list? I'm intrigued by some of your choices. Lastly, what is this No Mercy "competitive scene"? I seriously would want to go to one of those things with my Chris Jericho.
