Editors' review

You can dress this game up, but you can hardly get it into the ring to wrestle. While MDickie's Wrestling Mpire offers plenty of character-customization features, poor controls and miserable graphics barely make it a contender. The action of the game is straightforward: you train your wrestler to take part in matches with the goal of winning the cash prize. You can construct your ultimate wrestling machine with the game's ample character options (even choosing his clothes) but given the poor graphics resolution, the athlete resembles a brick wall more than a svelte wrestling star. The game's biggest problem aside from its poorly drawn world is its game controls. There's little guidance to show you how to take down your opponent, and none of the action is intuitive. While we were impressed with the more than 20 camera angles through which you can observe the action (or lack thereof), the angles don't help you move your character any more effectively. As a final blow, the program's hefty download (85MB) is hardly justified given the game's poor graphics. While wrestling fans might be able to overlook all these shortfalls, we weren't. MDickie's Wrestling Empire has plenty of tricks, but it's just not a whole lot of fun to play.

    "Best game MDickie has ever made"

    June 09, 2012   |   By Eyriey

    Version: Wrestling MPire 2004 1.8

    Pros

    Although this is one of his first games, this is one of his best.

    The background makes you feel as if you are really in an arena.

    Better story lines then the latest MPire games.

    Lovely fast graphics and much faster then Encore.

    Smooth simple layout on the menu.

    Cons

    Training screen to complex.

    Making your wrestler can get a bit confusing if you are not used to the detailed layout.

    The move set is pointless due to moves that you don't really use in the game.

    The cheats may give the user a wrong idea of the game. Non of the cheats work on computers like Acer.

    Can't edit your wrestlers stats.

    Not a great range of clothing for the wrestler.

    Summary

    Overall the game would not disappoint but if your more of a platform type of person the game would not at all be for you. This game is good for MD back in 2004 but it would never beat the original game that is 2D. But overall the game layout is very disappointing for a 2004 game but the sounds are very realistic.

    Overall rate: 7/10

    The game may of started the MDickie revolution.

    "Real Games Vs Fake Games"

    August 13, 2010   |   By IoSoS

    Version: MDickie's Wrestling Mpire 1.8

    Pros

    I love it,ON this game you can do whatever you want when you want.Walk to the ring how you want,fight how you want,attack the opponent until he is injured,move to a diffrent organization altogether.game, greatest wrestling game i ever played. period

    Cons

    It lags if you dont have a good computer.

    Summary

    I love this product these are how wrestling games are suppose to be made, itz not about mimicking another wrestler its about creating your own character, i was asked by another organization to be there general manager, that was awesome, no story line, no holds barred, this is the greatest and im not joking the greatest wrestling game ever. I played all the WWE games, all the TNA games, i played the ECW game, none of them compared to this one, If the creator had half the budget these major companies had, then its no way in hell that this game wouldnt see the graphix or quality that the other games have, but the other games dont have character, dont have openess. think about this, all the games that are really good, the grphix arent all that great but the quality of the games are sickning, GTA, the early Final Fantasies, Metal Gear Solids, its plenty more i cnat think of them right now, all im saying is this is a game to have, im about to play it right now again

    "I loved it!!"

    April 07, 2010   |   By jonlawson

    Version: MDickie's Wrestling Mpire 1.8

    Pros

    Everything about the game, injuries, game play, communication with the owners of the feds and other superstars. Everything is great to me!

    Cons

    LOL, honestly, the fact that it's now free :) I have been waiting for a few years to see if Mat would do that.

    Summary

    This is one of the best games ever made in my honest opinion. I think everyone should at least try it and understand what Mat Dickie was attempting to do with these games. He is amazing.

    "One of the best wrestling games"

    October 21, 2007   |   By ruthatplay

    Version: MDickie's Wrestling Mpire 1.8

    Pros

    It's hard to pinpoint one thing I like the best. It's very playable, can be played over and over with no boredom. Mods can be added to add some real life to it. Mods can also improve the graphics. It's realistic, too.

    Cons

    If you prefer a game with excellent graphics, you may want to look elsewhere. Also, if you have an older computer, it may have problems. Updating your computer, such as your video card, will help.

    "Messed up my computer"

    December 22, 2006   |   By RJWoods

    Version: MDickie's Wrestling Mpire 1.8

    Pros

    It was fun at first - at least during the first 2 or 3 games I played.

    Cons

    After far too short a trial period I made the mistake of registering this turkey. It messed up my computer. It crashed almost every time I played. It is also very repetitive and I got bored playing after a while. It also seems to be a vanity game for the creator as his name is in almost constant use throughout.

    When I complained about the instability of the game I got no response. Buyer beware!
