Critic Reviews for Wrestling Empire
The love of the sport permeates throughout the entirety of Wrestling Empire. Even with the issues inside the ring, the promise of greatness awaits in the gorilla position. With continued support from MDickie and a remarkable level of customization, this is the best wrestling game available on the Switch; although, it does need some refinement to keep hold of that title.
Wrestling Empire is the video game equivalent of Paul Heyman-era ECW. It's low-budget, it's extremely rough and it's often difficult to watch, but there's a clear passion for pro wrestling underneath it and we're sure it'll develop a hardcore following of fans who love it in spite of its many, many flaws.
However, Wrestling Empire isn't quite "so bad it's good" territory, nor is it the worst. It's basically the small indie wrestling company bringing in a guy with TV exposure to sell tickets. And with more competition coming in the short and hopefully longer terms for Switch wrestling games, it'll be one of those "Oh yeah, that happened" games in short order.
When is a Wrestling Game Not a Wrestling Game? The answer is when you’re playing Wrestling Empire. This game is unlike anything I have ever played before. Created by a single developer MDickie, this game is a strange testament to what can be achieved, while at the same time being an absolutely bizarre and unpredictable experience.
This game aims to deliver a fun, unique experience and it delivers that in spades. While the career mode feels kind of limited in what can happen, it is still an addictive and enjoyable experience. There’s a vast game world to explore and I can’t wait to dive into it more.
