2nd Biggest Disappointment of 2018: Fire Pro Wrestling World (PS4)
After my dismay of WWE 2K18, I was looking for an alternative in pro wrestling games, then I was reminded that WWE 2K was the only game in town until a dormant franchise announced their comeback to the states. I was stoked to play this on Playstation 4, while the game was already available for PC, and got good impressions from people looking for something different.
While the game is good, what I didn’t like were the lack of modes, considering the previous games had a lot more modes. The biggest factor of making the disappointment list is how cumbersome it is to download created wrestlers. The fact you have to go on the website, follow the creator, then reboot the game and then your downloaded wrestlers are there. The only good thing about this process is when that person updates their character it will be updated to your game.
Once again, I still like the game, but the lack of modes and a deep learning curve has me wish an upcoming wrestling promotion would give AKI a call to bring back their memorable gameplay fans from the N64 era of wrestling games love and miss dearly.
