Quiche’s Recommendation: Swipe your finger, not your credit card, to get The Rock
Review Guidelines are here.
WWE Immortals has The Rock. And Triple H. And The Undertaker. That’s all you need to know.
But here’s more if you want to know more:
The Android/iOS F2P is a 3v3 brawler with our favorite wrestlers in fantastical outfits doing magic and stuff in cool sci-fi/fantasy worlds. The game itself? Not really why you’d download this game. No, you download and play it for hours and maybe spend real money because you want to buy The Rock. Yes, that’s The Rock. That’s Dwayne Johnson as The Rock as the Stone Watcher all yours for only 46,000 WWE bucks. That’s about $6.50 in real money. Not a bad deal.
Don’t want to scratch plastic? You can earn your WWE bucks the hard way. By fighting. You fight a series of battles in 3v3 tag team action. Pick three characters and go against three others. Currently, there are only 25 characters so you often face characters fighting themselves. Characters can be upgraded, trained or simply improve by fighting.
Fighting is the least enjoyable part of this F2P. You have to move your fingers. Swipe, swipe, tap here, tap there, swipe some more. Eventually, you either win or lose. The chemistry of your team has to jibe or they won’t fight as well.
There’s also strategy in which character to call up depending on the opponent, but it’s really about swiping until your wrist gets sore. Building up adrenaline, which happens just by fighting, gives you special attacks, which vary depending on upgrades and levels. Of course, you can make all of it go faster by spending real money. But if you’re like me without stacks of disposable income, only thing to do is swipe.
The Rock is definitely a carrot, but the game is too repetitive and my wrists too sore for me to keep this F2P on my device.
