    Face 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 translateFace it, many critics downrated this game simply because it isn't palatable to Americans.

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. Expand

    Lucha Libre AAA Heroes del Ring its a total new experience for mexican gamers, because its not only the game its the tradition that involves la lucha libre mexicana, and you see it because its not the only punching - kicking and super mortal finishers ( like wwe ) its working the crowd, raising the popularity of the character.

    like the game say`s no es wrestling es lucha libre! att. mr - leo

    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 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 theFor 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.

I highly recommend turning off the English and sticking with Spanish commentary....I don't speak Spanish but loved it. Expand

    Fans of Lucha Libre might enjoy seeing their favorite fighters in action, but even the most dedicated aficionado will find the turgid gameplay disappointing.

    This game means well -- It really does. It's just not any good.

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