Nacho Libre

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The WMG thought long and hard trying to find one video game that was based off a comedy movie that was successful. None came to mind, which was not a very good sign for Nacho Libre on the Nintendo DS. This game is based on a priest who becomes a professional wrestler (secretly) to earn money for the orphanage. He wants to earn them enough money to buy a bus so they go on field trips together.

Nacho Libre Review

1 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Making a wrestling game based on Nacho Libre , the goofball Jack Black comedy about a Mexican monk turned luchador (wrestler), is insane. Making it exclusively for the Nintendo DS is even more insane. Throwing in a bunch of Monty Python-inspired cut-and-paste cutscenes using scenes from the film, as well as ridiculous minigames involving bee swatting, salad formation, and bull dodging, among other activities, is howling-at-the-moon insane.
  • Pros: Completely bizarre cutscene work, full-motion video clips from the movie, a surprising amount of moves available...
  • Cons: ...except you don't actually have to use any of those moves since the grapple button takes priority over everything, extremely shallow minigames, wrestling-match graphics aren't attractive at all, story mode takes less than an hour to complete, computer wrestlers are insanely easy to beat
