WrestleQuest is a fantastic wrestling RPG adventure with fun and satisfying exploration, combat, and character development. The game does have a few wrinkles to iron out, however, whether you're a life-long wrestling fan or just a casual fan like me, WrestleQuest is a must-have. ¡Oh Si!
WrestleQuest does an excellent job at combining pro wrestling legends with a turn-based combat system that takes the best kind of cues from Nintendo's more-interactive Mario RPGs over the years.
With intuitive combat, a mostly endearing story, and enough Easter eggs to fill the Gobbledy Gooker's nest, WrestleQuest is a must-play for fans of this great pseudo-sport. For everyone else, think of this RPG as a fine form of entertainment, much like professional wrestling itself.
As an RPG, WresteQuest takes players on an epic quest filled with danger, action, adventure, and rewards. As a wrestling game, it holds as much character as an 80s wrestling throwback can. Perhaps maybe even more. If you are a wrestling games fan, this will certainly need to make it into your library. If you’re an 80s wrestling fan and love retro games, then WrestleQuest is an absolute must.
WrestleQuest is an easy recommendation to any professional wrestling fan, or RPG fan, and may be the champion of bridges between the two.
A nostalgic pixilated RPG set in a world of retro toys, where wrestling is king. DualShockers was provided with a copy of the game for review purposes.
WrestleQuest is a delightful game that captures the essence of wrestling in RPG form.
WrestleQuest might just be this years’ best wrestling game, certainly it’s most unexpected. With a cast of who’s-who legends, some interesting twists and turns and a sense of humour fans will love, Mega Cat have built something quite brilliant. The mechanics are smart, the environments are full of easter eggs, and the game holds itself up surprisingly well despite a slow start.
WrestleQuest delivered exactly what I was hoping for: a charming adventure mixing the best parts of wrestling with classic RPG exploration and combat.
WrestleQuest has all the right tools to pique a pro-wrestling fan's interest, but it fails to deliver when it matters.
WrestleQuest is a charming, cute and heartfelt game that is laser-targeted at a very specific group. It's not even so much wrestling fans as those who grew up playing with wrestling toys in some fashion. That isn't to say it's inaccessible outside of that demographic, but it's dedicated in its purpose and does it well. It's far too slow for its own good, and a lot of the charm and fun can wear out their welcome after you watch the same lengthy animation for the umpteenth time. If you're a '90s kid or a fan of wrestling or unique RPGs, WrestleQuest is probably worth a look.
The love and passion gone into the creation of WrestleQuest is clear, however, certain design decisions and a repetitive combat system make this a stumble down memory lane. Although the story is full of intrigue and famous wrestlers form part of the adventure, the repeat deviations quickly diminish interest in the narrative. Combat gets repetitive and animations fail to capture the nuances of the sport. Although fans of wrestling will enjoy seeing legends as part of the experience, some design decisions fumble the finish.
WrestleQuest takes the classic idea of a video game based on pro-wrestling and flips it on its head, giving us an RPG instead of the typical fighting game. It also has tons of fan service for those who might be into classic wrestling, and tells a few interesting and heartwarming stories along the way, all wrapped up in a fun aesthetic.
Wrestlequest is a lot of fun, and there is clearly a strong nostalgia for wrestling here, as well as the old-school style of roleplaying games. This is both a blessing and a curse. Wrestlequest does its best to keep the player engaged, and the story is a delight even if you aren't a wrestling fan, but the slow pace of old-school RPGs can quickly wear on modern players. However, if someone is yearning for the old 16-bit Final Fantasy style of gameplay, Wrestlequest will absolutely scratch that itch: ooooh Yeah!
Wrestlequest has some fantastic combat mechanics and a ton of nods to the world of wrestling but gets weighed down by its own substance far too often.
WrestleQuest is a surprising blend of WWE-style wrestling and a JRPG, making for an impressively charming game.
WrestleQuest’s love for wrestling catapults its creative and beautiful landscapes and strong characters into the main event, but isn’t enough to elevate its bloated level design or competent-but-repetitive combat out of the mid card.
WrestleQuest is a fantastic concept for a video game, but slow pacing, annoying voice lines and a ridiculous amount of QTEs spoil it entirely.
WrestleQuest does a good job of taking something that you wouldn't think would fit as an RPG game and makes it work. The world is amazing, the characters, and cameos are really going to invoke the golden era of Professional Wrestling. However, once you rip that nostalgia away you are left with a very bare-bones RPG experience that gets boring very quickly.
Putting wrestling and turn-based RPGs in a can they co-exist tag team style was an excitingly bold move that unfortunately ends in a heel turn and a crowd leaving early to beat the traffic.
