    As a quaint button masher there's a superplex of fun to be had. [Christmas 2012, p.87]

    Basic wrestling action made all the better by deep customisation and accessible grappling. [Issue#91, p.86]

    You still get a decent value for your $10, though, including fun (if simple) combat, a several-hour career mode, engaging character customization, and serviceable online matches. Plus, minor hiccups are easy to overlook when you're Marcus Fenix flying off the top rope.

    The flaws, which range from small to stupefying, are exhaustive.

Idea to bring this game to Xbox 360 was interesting... but Microsoft, of course, shove us an Avatars and we have to use them. No creation of your own character, bad gameplay, not so great sound effects and most importantly, this is one of the worst Wrestling games since this with Hulk Hogan and those created by LJN for NES and SNES. 2/10.

    As a huge fan of the Fire Pro series I wasn't just disappointed but also insulted by the idea of Microsoft taking the name of one a belovedAs a huge fan of the Fire Pro series I wasn't just disappointed but also insulted by the idea of Microsoft taking the name of one a beloved gaming franchise and slapping it on to a terrible Avatar game. The only comparison i can make that even comes close to describing the reality of what's been done here is that It's like A company buying the rights to the Batman Arkham franchise and relabeling all the old copies of Superman64 just to make a quick nauseating buck at the expense of poor unsuspecting Fans.This is a terrible game please don't waste any of your hard earned money on it. If you really enjoy Fire Pro games or wrestling games in general You can pick up a GameBoy Advance or PS2 dirt cheap and get a copy of the Real Fire Pro games on them. There are also a ton of Fire Pro Roms out there (even a few with English translations patched in) to keep you busy till we get a Real Follow up to the best 2D Pro Wrestling game series ever made.

    Huge Spoilers Below!!!!!!!

    --This game sucks don't buy it.
