    In the end, it's just a forgettable attempt at wrestling.

    This flawed attempt at a game based on lucha libre wrestling is down for the count just moments after entering the ring.

    The gameplay really clicks (for the most part), the presentation is true to the sport, and there are more than enough matches and modes to keep you busy when not detailing your luchador. It has a long way to go to catch WWE Smackdown vs. Raw, but here's hoping that Lucha Libre AAA expands even further with future installments.

    The game may not have what it takes to dethrone WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 2011 as best wrestling title of the year, but there's enough to make people look forward to a new entry in the series. If you're a big wrestling fan, be sure to rent Lucha Libre AAA, but since the online landscape is so desolate, be prepared to have a few friends on standby.

    Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring is game that wrestling fans may want to try, but try with caution. The content is a refreshing take on the world of wrestling given that the Mexican spectacle of Lucha Libre takes center stage. That being said, the control and AI issues do take away from a game that could have been so much more and this is where the cautionary warning is duly noted.

    Lucha Libre isn't going to be crowned the king of the ring anytime soon. This Mexican flavoured grappler has the ambition and look, but in the rings things fail to come together. The in-ring action is just too sluggish with controls that match.

    For a first game ever from Slang and the fact that the wrestling genre is stale as month old bread, Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring is a funFor a first game ever from Slang and the fact that the wrestling genre is stale as month old bread, Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring is a fun game and a much needed addition to the genre. It does have some flaws, but with really cool features like Creating your own mask (there are a million options), the story player mode where I learned a ton about the sport and it has cool vids, and the online mode of Mask vs. Hair (when you play and win, you rip the mask off your opponent and get to keep it in your trophies), this game is fun and easy to pick-up and enjoy. I highly recommend turning off the English and sticking with Spanish commentary....I don't speak Spanish but loved it. Full Review »

    Face it, many critics downrated this game simply because it isn't palatable to Americans. They can make it palatable to Americans, butFace it, many critics downrated this game simply because it isn't palatable to Americans. They can make it palatable to Americans, but something else will result, and it will not be a lucha libre video game anymore. You cannot Americanize Lucha Libre, because then it looses it's cultural value, the largest obstacle in this game being the language barrier, some things just don't translate form Spanish very well...so it would have been better to just adapt it to English and had English commentators do the talking just like they do for WWE. I would imagine subtitles don't help much either, nevertheless I can say native Spanish speakers do not have as much trouble understanding the game. Anyway, if they ever make a second game, it's probably going to be better than this one...but then again every single video game out there is meant for Americans. Full Review »
