''Guacamelee goes a long way in proving that while it’s important to be respectful for that which came before you should by no way be constrained to a the original box when designing something of similar origin and draws heavily from the 2D classics such as Super Metroid and Castlevania.
You start Guacamelee impoverished Mexican farmer named Juan whose simplistic life is flipped upside down when el Presidente’s daughter, who happens to be Juan’s true love, is kidnapped by the demon-skeleton Carlos Calaca. After a ham-fisted rescue attempt Juan is killed and resurrected as a Luchador in a realm of the dead filled with numerous creatures and enemies that stand between your vengeance and reunion. Juan develops his skills as a luchador throughout his journey in temples, deserts and forests; honing his wrestling ability to take on the deadly Calaca in one final showdown.'' 9.2/10
