The peak of simulation-style wrestling games. No other wrestling game features such a large variety of wrestlers, modes, moves, or sheer gameplay variety. Fire Pro Returns boasts an intimidating level of wrestler-creation options, gameplay focused around skill and timing rather than button-mashing, and an even goes far enough to include a very respectable mixed martial arts gameplay engine. While the gameplay and feature set may be daunting to all but the most hardcore of wrestling game fans, for those gamers there is not a finer wrestling experience. On ANY system.
A Japanese-only title the makers of Fire Pro Wrestling Returns, King of Colosseum II enters the world of three-dimensional graphics while fully embracing the world of Japanese professional wrestling, or "Puroresu." In another departure from the Fire Pro series, KoC II features actual professional wrestlers from promotions all over Japan. An extensive feature set, and a character-creation system with as much depth as Fire Pro Returns, make King of Colosseum II a great choice for gamers looking for more after diving into the Fire Pro Wrestling series.
Honorable Mention. More fighting game than wrestling game.
