Default Fire Pro Wrestling released on Xbox Live Arcade.....

...and sadly it's hugely disappointing.

A slightly strange control scheme, quite limited moves. And they've crippled the awesome wrestler customisation the older FPW games had. Now, unless I'm missing something, ALL the created wrestlers are based on your Xbox Live Avatar. You pretty much just give them different outfits.

I was stoked when I saw this, and immediately added MS points and downloaded it. Now I feel kind of ripped off.

Yeah, why didn't you just watch some stuff on YouTube before doing that?

That shit? Avoid at all costs ladies and gentlemen. Truly the Dragonball Evolution of the FRP franchise. Nothing like what we knew and came off as shit.

I actually feel quite pissed that this title has been given the FPW name. They're clearly hoping it will sell on name alone before people realise that all the things that made FPW great have been discarded. The bastards have my money so I don't doubt others will do the same.

This is were the road forks for FPw fans. Do we ignore this and hope MS (and Spike) realize avatars aren't what FPW fans want and give us at least FPR (probably not going to happen)? Or buy it to show support for Spike in a vain hope they'll give us a new Fire Pro?

Even though I don't own an X-Box I ended up watching this video on YouTube:



I honestly feel bad for anybody who purchased this.
