SUMMARY: I never liked wrestling until i started playing this game. Then i started watching it but this games is fun. I struggled at first but when u practice u'll definetly improve. the intermediate stage was too hard for me so if ur a beginner i suggest u put it on 1. The characters in this game were unique but some of the moves reminded u of professional wrestlers which was cool. Another great thing is u can change the wrestlers name and edit their style and u can choose the places where u can wrestle. The music was cool too. The bad thing was there was no commentating. This makes the games get boring quickly so u won't get very addicted to it. Also in tournaments, u sometimes have to watch the computer wrestle against another computer wrestler which sucks. Most of the time u have to reduce the time to get over with it quickly. I don't think u can unlock anymore wrestlers which i think is stupid but never the less it's an enjoyable game ...
THE GOOD: Excellant Graphics Good Variety of Tricks & Obstacles
THE BAD: Can be difficult at times to complete challenges.
SUMMARY: Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 offers a solid game from start to finish. It's graphics are very detailed with rich, sharp, colorful textures, smooth scrolling and good bike animations. Sound is sub-par with a mix of techno tracks to add to the games fast pace. The game offers a good variety of challenges and obstacles to add lasting appeal. Tricks can take an hour or so to become comfortable with, but after playing around in Freestyle mode for a while the game begans to become more appealing as the contols become more fluid to the user. The challenges make the game more addictive giving the game more depth and the added incentive to unlock more tracks. At times certain challenges can be a little too difficult to master presenting more frustration than excitement. Overall I give this game a solid 5 out of 5 because of the fantastic graphics, smooth operation...
THE GOOD: -depth of moves -create a character -cpu vs. cpu are very realistic
THE BAD: -graphics don't Wow you
SUMMARY: Fire Pro wrestling for GBA is quite simply the greatest wrestling game ever made for the home system. -okay all overeaching statements aside, FPW delivers i so many ways. it's create a character feature is the best in the business, and puts The THQ/no mercy options to shame. the amount of moves is staggering, moves from mexico, usa, japan, canada, they are all there -the graphics may not be as highly detailed as other games (rayman on GBA is beautiful!) but FPW isn't about flash, it's about substance. with the HUGE number of wresters to choose from, the create option, and even an exploding ring cage match to chose to play, FPW is awesome, i even like watching the cpu control both wrestlers. -77 save slts for your created warroirs and corrected WWF 'knockoffs' make this a keeper.
THE GOOD: Good graphics .Many moves .Great edit modes .Many match types .Alot of space for created wrestlers .Real wrestlers are in it it only under fake names .
THE BAD: Sometimes difficult .Takes a while to get use to the controls .No quit option .
SUMMARY: This game holds it's own against No Mercy,the Smackdown games, and all the other wrestling games for large consoles .FPA is suprisingly fun and addicting for a GBA game .
If your a fan of only WWF wrestling games then don't worry because wrestlers like Austin and The Rock are in it under fake names(for obvious reasons) .It also has wrestlers from ECW,WCW, and the japanese wrestling organazations under fake names .
The control is a bit hard to get used to but once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy .There is no in game quit option which can be annoying at times .
The game has a number of match modes .If you have time you can play a tourniment,audience match, or a couple of other modes .The matches them selves are also great .The mo...
Despite being quite successful in Japan, the Fire Pro Wrestling series has never really made it out of the country in which it earned its fame. And that is surprising considering the quality of the games that are produced in this series. Fire Pro Wrestling games are packed with wrestlers from a variety of organisations – there are over 150 in this game – and different modes from many different types of wrestling – types that the average fan probably never thought existed. The series has had games on the SNES, Dreamcast and PlayStation but are only now releasing a title in America with this GameBoy Advance version and although the gameplay is great it is still a bold move by the publishers. A bold move because of the oncoming wrestling game from the WWF, a single federation that has managed to keep this title confined in Japan.
For the draw of the official WWF licensed games means that most other wrestling games perform badly unless brandished with an official license in some way. An...
SUMMARY: Great game, play for hours cause it's so addictive. With many characters (some from the WWF but with different names suchs as MAJORs, who is Stone Cold Steve Austin.) Excellent graphics and you can even make more than 50 custom characters. Be great if a Royal Rumble was in it!
THE GOOD: Create-a-Character!!!, Modes , Everything else
THE BAD: Nothing at all
SUMMARY: Well when i heard this game was coming to US i went jumpin for joy. First of all the gameplay is awsome remember people this is not smackdown, not a button smasher game its a timing game. Press the button when they are about to grapple, too late or too soon and your on the other side of the mat. Create-a-character ( CAW ) is the best feature of the game. Make and design a character from there faces to the soles of there shoes. everything is there. Even feds of WWF WCW UFC, PRIDE ECT... are there too but of course there names are changed due to the lisences but with the help of the CAW you can change it all. So if you love wrestling and want a chalenging game of skill not button smashing playing then this game is for you.
THE GOOD: great detailed well animated characters, LOADS of variety and options (except one to quit the game)
THE BAD: No quit game option in the middle of a bout strangely enough - erm... that's about it
SUMMARY: When I first had this game I was amazed at the size of the instructions and was quite daunted by them. When I first started playing I was getting a little frustrated as I couldn't get the hang of the controls - partly due to the big list of controls in the instructions. However, I persevered - and boy was it worth it. After a few goes, the controls somehow didn't seem so complicated, and I actually started winning - the key was to start with the weaker moves on your opponent first so he is less likely to counter-attack, and to get the timing spot-on when grappling. Then the game got so much better - In fact, out of the three games I have so far (the other two being Mario and GT Championship (or Top Gear in US), I would say this is now the most fun and addictive one. The gr...
