Day One DLC? The lines between consoles and phones/tablets blur yet again ...

At first glance, I'm impressed that they seem to be following the "physics" that the original WWF Wrestlefest game had - four punches on a standing opponent will knock them over, when you're in a grapple, the first to land two of three punches "wins" the power struggle and gets to attempt their move, the "diagonal fall" pose when an opponent is weakened so you can start landing your signature grapple / running finishers, even the similar futility of trying to pin early (although in the old days it was because the tag team partner would always break it up given half a chance). Wonder if submission moves will still be the most reliable way to get a victory ...

Depressing that Jake "The Snake" Roberts is the ONLY veteran of the original game to be represented in this one right away (with the Big Boss Man available as DLC). It's just not Wrestlefest without The Million Dollar Man dominating the entire roster like he was never allowed to do in real life ...

These statements are annoying. It is the gaming market. Devs found a model, stupid buyers support it, it gets instated. It would be dumb not to sell everything separatedly if everyone will but it anyways, if anything is the consumers fault and not something about the "consoles" (console games weren't like that either iuno).

What I want to know is, how on earth can this be 167 mb before install? I mean, look at it. Does "Big Publisher" have to equal "Big File Size" just for keeping up appearances or something?

Annoying or not, it's still largely a console gimmick. The iOS marketplace is usually either a paid "full" version, or a freeware version with an option to "unlock" the full game. (Quite often, the first type of game "converts" to the second after a couple months, to make sure they can get sales from the best of both worlds.) The Farmville model of "pay to proceed faster" is also frequently seen.

Charging full price for the full game with pay-to-expand features from the very first day isn't a common sales tactic for phone/tablet gaming yet.


As for pricing on this, it looks like about $5 to start and $1 for the first "DLC Pack," with more content being released every thirty days.

Default Game Impressions

Well I tried the lite version: Woeful presentation, horribly unresponsive controls, pathetic sound. No retina. But it's retro so it's still great. Right?

Why would they leave out major sound effects like punches and slams? Game looks great, but only hearing the crowd roar takes away most of the feel of the game. Game seems bare without ALL the wrestling sounds...
