The God of Wrestling Games. Hands down the best. I remember being so amazed the first time I played this. I still learn new things about the game today. I know it's 2014 already but no game has topped this yet. WWE 2K14 is really good and I love it it's my favorite WWE game but it's not as good as FPR. I'm telling you go buy this. It's on the PSN Store for $10 and it's worth $100.
If I was stranded on a desert island, and could only choose one game to keep with me, this would be it. If you're a wrestling fan, you'll completely appreciate how setting up feuds and leagues and tournaments never gets old. The level of creation and customization is staggering. Just about every move you've ever seen on TV is represented or has a close equivalent in the master list. Plenty of match types and you can create your own championships. Easy to play and learn, moves are based on precise timing, not button mashing or anything the current WWE games are forcing us to do, like stopping a fast moving icon in a specific part of a bar to escape a move. There is a basic reversal system, and the big moves are easy to pull off. One of the neatest features is the CRITICAL! system where certain moves can cause an immediate injury or knockout at complete random. They are semi-rare, and will always surprise you when it happens. Older style graphics may seem lame to some, but it allows for more sprites on the screen (8-man tag match, anyone?) and fast loading.

BTW, there are over 500 slots for your created characters, so you can create just about anyone you want, and have room to keep them!
There's an amazing amount of depth in Fire Pro Wrestling Returns but if you can't get by the way the game mechanics work, the way it looks or its archaic menu system then you should just keep walking because there's nothing to see here.
The fact that you can create your own shows, rings, belts, logos, superstars and more means that if you dig the game's style of grappling, there are literally thousands of things for you to do. However, this game is far from being for everyone.
This is by far one of the greatest wrestling games of all time. Great default roster (300+), great gameplay that utilizes timed button pressing, and beyond phenomenal customization with the ability to create wrestlers, rings, and referees.
Unlike other games like smackdown, the TNA's and others during it's time and after, this game contains a huge roster, tons of moves and customization. Unfortunately it is 2D and takes some getting used to when it comes to the moves you can do.
Your patience and time practicing will pay off as it is an addicting game.
Right now this is one of my favorites, up there with the No Mercy's and Wrestlemania 2000's.
SummaryThe popular Fire Pro Wrestling series is famous for its unparalleled gameplay depth and unmatched customization options, and Fire Pro Wrestling Returns is the biggest and best title yet.
