Recently I discovered a wrestling game that came out a while back and I was fairly surprised. Before I begin if you’re looking to read a great review of how great this game is like WWE 12 you have come to the wrong place. However, if you are smart, intelligent, and passionate wrestling fan keep on reading.
The Lucha Libre style goes back many years and has even been brought to the United States. This game features 30 of the best Lucha Libre stars that currently wrestle for AAA down in Mexico. Like the style of Lucha Libre, you have to be very quick on the remote and not miss a beat.
It has has a couple of spots where it could be a little bit of an arcade game but overall I would say its pretty authentic to how the Lucha Libre’s wrestle. The game is simple and doesn’t have a lot of modes to it. You can create a luchador, have tournaments or be in story mode. It features an eight sided ring with about 10 different venues and features a variety of commentary and moves. Some of the moves in this game make it hard to put the remote down.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate it a 6.5. It’s different, unique and fun to play but it doesn’t have a lot of depth. If you’re a wrestling fan of the luchador style then you should buy this game. If you’re strictly a WWE fan buy the game anyways and learn about a whole different style of pro wrestling. Lucha Libre is great and tons of fun. So all I got to say now is Yo, yo, yo, lemme speak on this…. Orale! Arriba la raza!
