Guacamelee! Review | GameRevolution

Working out as a luchador includes a lot of full-body motions.

You've gotta lift things up over your head, remain extremely flexible, and generally jump around in skimpy underpants. It's not an easy thing to do. Luchador wrestlers train for years and the sport has certainly influenced other styles of wrestling around the world. Thankfully, Drinkbox Studios have prepared a simulation for aspiring luchadores to see if they would enjoy that lifestyle.

Guacamelee! is all about Juan, a regular joe who's pretty down on himself. Joe sulks around the town running errands until suddenly, El Presidente's daughter is kidnapped! When Juan gives pursuit, the big bad Skeleton guy uses his magic powers to kill Juan. In death, Juan puts on a magical luchador mask, where he gains the ability to flip back and forth between the land of the living and the land of the dead. And as silly as that premise sounds, it's actually an excellent game. (Guacamelee, PS Vita, PS3) 4.5/5

The game is much more a Castlevania/Metroidvania game than Mirror of Fate will ever be. Despite its peculiar name Guacamelee is a fantastic albeit short romp. Perfect for handhelds like the Vita!

This game rocks, if you don't have it, get it. Looks great on the Vita. Was surprised at the amount of enemies sometimes, fun.

Suplex those god damn chickens! lol

VIVA LA VITA! LIVE THE LIFE!
