Wrestling Encore Review
By Jesse Alley |
The 2006 edition of MDickie's landmark wrestling series. Following the cult success of 2004's Wrestling MPire, the world's biggest and most innovative wrestling simulator returns for a Wrestling Encore. It takes the same revolutionary contract-driven career mode and fulfills its potential with improved graphics, animation, sound, and gameplay. Create your own wrestling wannabe from scratch, and then immerse them in a gigantic universe of over 200 wrestlers spread across 6 major promotions. Negotiate the big-money deals that will make you rich, win the high-profile matches that will make your name, and develop the backstage relationships that will determine your fate - as you play through an endless schedule of possibilities. Or simply blow off steam with the wildest in-ring action that a PC can handle - featuring up to 30 characters on screen, and up to 100 fully interactive items and weapons.
Everything so far has been a warm-up act ... get ready for the main event! Having returned from a Tour Of Duty, this updated version of the wrestling simulator features thousands of polygons of improved graphics, thousands of frames of improved animation, thousands of waves of improved sound - and thousands of lines of improved code, which keep the concept working better than ever before.
