    Spending 800 Microsoft Points on Lucha Fury will definitely not be a mistake. Its humor, adequate comic-style graphics, unlockable content and especially its amazing offline co-op are the reasons why Lucha Fury successfully manages to take the player on a trip to a Mexican world of brawls full of fun.

    Okay, so the AI is dumb and the gameplay largely repetitive, but to quibble on these points would be to miss the point of this simple, fun arcade fighter. [Oct 2011, p.85]

    Lucha Fury is a beat-'em-up with a polished artistic direction, colorful visuals and poor gameplay.

    It's sloppy, boring, and inauthentic.

    A good idea in terms of graphics and concept doesn't always determine a good game, and Lucha Fury stands as an example of this. Charming and interesting to see, this game is simply and sadly not entertaining to play.

    A relatively pretty update of the classic formula, but one that lacks the soul or spirit to make it even vaguely interesting.

    We genuinely can't help but feel sorry for the art team, who've done a fantastic job of bringing the world and characters to life. These guys have clearly poured a lot of love into Lucha Fury, and it's a great shame to see amateur game design decisions kick this bucket of charm so ruthlessly down the gutter.

    Lucha Fury could be a decent brawler, but the fun in its gameplay is brought down greatly by its bad controls.

    Generally speaking, Lucha Fury is a complete waste of time and Microsoft Points. [Issue#75, p.101]

    Lucha Fury is hardly recommendable, even for diehard beat'em up fans.

    Lucha Fury is a beat-'em-up that proves that beauty is only screen deep.

    Very inspired by the Lucha Libre comic, Lucha Fury offers a really polished artistic direction, colorful visuals, and a fun mexican wrestling take on the atmosphere. But once you get your hands on the controller, it feels like you've been suplexed hard : the gameplay clearly lacks smoothness, the characters feel like they're ice skating all the time, collision bugs are legion, and there's latency in the execution of the combat moves... The special moves seem dull and there aren't any enemy really fun to battle. Levels are repetitive, poorly paced, musics can make you crazy... it's the typical example of a beat'em all with a world and atmosphere that would have been perfect for the genre, if only the gameplay wasn't a real mess.

    You don't get many brawlers these days, but even the biggest fan of the genre should consider it a personal debasement to buy this one.

    I went and played Final Fight again, and was reassured that no, old beat-'em-ups are fine. It's just Lucha Fury that's miserable garbage.

    Lucha Fury is a prime example of video game design gone wrong… very wrong. From the opening 'tutorial' to the repetitive, lacklustre levels that make up the rest of the game, there's almost nothing endearing, charming or enjoyable about this experience.

    I wish I just saw the screen shots, as once you download and press start, the game falls apart like a cheap suit. Oh and if for some reason you defend this game and think I'm way off base, I have some garbage that needs to be put out that you can sift through that may look interesting to you. While some of my trash may look useful, in the end, like Lucha Fury, it's just trash.
