5 Star Wrestling




5 Star Wrestling 


If you are a long time professional wrestling fan then you are most likely disappointed that WWE is mainly the only game in town. Sure there is TNA. Things get even worse when we talk about wrestling video games. Anything without the Vince McMahon seal of approval is few and far between. Which is a shame because there are plenty of different ideas in the industry that could be made into a great wrestling video game.

This is where 5 Star Wrestling on the Playstation 3 enters the arena. This is a core wrestling experience. Casual gamers can enjoy a local multiplayer which is generally easier than many of the challenges in this downloadable only home console video game. Thankfully there are none of those lame, and identity theft prone online modes in 5 Star Wrestling.

The wrestlers look good and animate well in 5 Star Wrestling. I waited for the most current update and bug fix. Some of the glitches were definitely fixed in 5 Star Wrestling. I did notice some graphical oddities while playing 5 Star Wrestling on the Playstation 3. I moved around the other wrestler just to glitch right in front of him to take a punch to the face. Weird but definitely forgivable.

The wrestlers in 5 Star Wrestling are parodies of some well known wrestlers in real life. The roster is a bit on the limited side unfortunately. The counting in 5 Star Wrestling is so slow. You almost have to stay down or out of the ring. I wish there were some fans in the stands of 5 Star Wrestling. Announcers are only found at the beginning to tell players the names of the wrestlers. Which really helps if you can not read their names on the screen.

There are numerous challenges in 5 Star Wrestling with multiple objectives. As well as a variety of ways to play 5 Star Wrestling. Some of the matches in 5 Star Wrestling are more violent than others. A first blood match will ensure blood is shown on the screen at some point. There are numerous punches, kicks, submissions and wrestling moves in 5 Star Wrestling. Some look very painful.

I love how Serious Parody did finisher moves in 5 Star Wrestling. A bar builds and when it gets full, the player gets five stars on the screen. Then you get close and press the triangle button to pull of a finishing move. These will not always ensure a pin though. I had to hit that finisher five times or more before certain characters would finally lay down for the three second tan. Which felt more like a ten second tan thanks to the slow count.
