Hardcore Gamer: "Guacamelee! is the game that dares to ask the question — What would happen if you replaced Samus with a luchador? The answer, of course, is pure awesome. Guacamelee! is an unremittingly entertaining romp through a Mexican-themed fantasy world, where the evil death-skeleton Calaca has decided to merge the Land of the Dead with that of the living. Worse, he’s kidnapped El Presidente’s daughter, and you’d better believe Juan is a bad enough dude to rescue her."
