Fire Pro Wrestling World brings back everything that was great about Fire Pro R and expands upon it to give fans the definitive Fire Pro experience. Don't let the graphics scare you away, this is one of the most fun and most in depth professional wrestling games around today that any fans of professional wrestling, no matter what promotion you enjoy watching, can enjoy.
Before I begin, this is just a personal preference. But, FPWW is a complete wrestling game. The gameplay logic is where it's at along with the customization! The fact this game doesn't get enough attention is a shame. Especially with how bad WWE 2K has been this past year, the controls do take some time to get used to and the graphics aren't amazing by any means. But if you love customizing your own ring, roster, promotion, etc along with good gameplay I highly suggest checking this out!
Amazing game, great gameplay and interesting visuals. I also enjoy the tie in with NJPW since that one is my favorite wrestling promotion. Costumization is more deep than ever, with several accessories for your created characters. I am really happy that the king of wrestling games is back.
This is a game of pure wrestling which aims to replicate the most technical and psychological aspects of the discipline by offering a rigorous, but very rewarding gameplay. You need an investment in terms of hours and effort to get satisfaction from Fire Pro Wrestling World, but you’ll get a game that can last, literally, decades.
Fire Pro Wrestling World provides players with some of the best pro wrestling gameplay since WWF: No Mercy. The inclusion of the New Japan Pro-Wrestling license is just the cream on top of this yummy cake.
I think most buyers of the game that hate it don't take the time to dig into the deep mechanics. Yes, on the surface it seems simple. If you gloss over the controls but don't bother going into the create a character and looking at the ratings, move-sets and logic, you're missing out. Customization is fantastic, the modding community is bustling with activity, and it constantly surprises me with little details that make this game fun (IE, settings for random guys in your stable-or opponents stable- running into the ring, having a manager ring side, etc.). This is the first fire pro game I've played and I love the flexibility and gameplay. It could be that because I'm older, I dig the graphics and overall style of the game. But it still plays ten times deeper than what I've seen across other wrestling titles. It's not a button masher, it requires timing and true strategy to win in this game. This was definitely worth the 20 bucks or so that I paid. I've spent that on much worse in my lifetime.
The best simulation of professional wrestling ever created. Endless customization, a plethora of match types, and every wrestler is there for the picking/creating. You can even make your own ring.
If you've never played a Fire Pro game it will take time to learn the basics. The gameplay used to be a major hurdle for new players, but there's actually a training mode in FPW called Mission Mode. Stick with it and you'll be having 5-star classics in no time.
This is a bit like marmite. I always wanted to play a Fire Pro game during the last decades, as I had heard they were really something special. As a wrestling fan, I was up for trying any wrestling game. But they always seemed only available via import. So in 2018, we finally got a straight UK release for Fire Pro on the PS4. I must say, I'm a little disappointed. You can make pretty authentic caws but the system is not as user friendly as it could of been. I found the gameplay itself disjointed. I certainly couldn't play it for long sessions. Fire Pro has it's moments, but I wasn't blown away. When it comes to retro wrestling games, you can't beat the N64 classics.
