Is WWE Immortals Worth Downloading?

Mihir Patkar 17-01-2015

World Wrestling Entertainment. Entertainment. That last word is key in what the WWE is all about. And that’s what the new Android and iOS game celebrates. WWE Immortals is pure entertainment.


There have been some great wrestling video games 4 Of The Best Wrestling Video Games You Should Play If you're still riding high on the thrill of April's WrestleMania XXX, it might be time to get your hands on a great pro wrestling video game. The colorful casts, surprising plot twists, and flashy... Read More in the past, but all of them have put the emphasis on realism. Those games focussed on life-like replicas of the wrestlers and put them in the ring, unleashing their signature moves.

WWE Immortals takes the action into a fictional land with mythical, exaggerated personas of the wrestlers and a one-on-one fighting system that is more reminiscent of games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. It all makes sense when you realise who developed the game: NetherRealm Studios, the guys behind Mortal Kombat!

What’s WWE Immortals All About?


In a way, Immortals takes you back to the days of Sega Genesis, when WWF Wrestlemania took the top stars from the wrestling industry and made the game more like a traditional fighting game. WWE Immortals reimagines today’s top wrestlers. Sheamus is dressed up like a celtic warrior, The Big Show is like a giant out of Lord Of The Rings, Trish Stratus is a “White Witch” who fights on the side of the good guys, The Rock has glowing blue eyes and is made out of stone, and so on. The character animations are fantastic, providing an otherworldly quality to the game.

Each match-up has you choosing a team of three, taking on a team of equal opponents. You start with three players, and you can buy more as you progress. Each victory gives you WWE coins to spend in a store, buying players or upgrading your existing ones. You’ll need to buy players because each one has limited stamina—and stamina determines whether a player can be used in the next fight or not.



The in-app purchases come in here. You can buy WWE coins or stamina cards with real-world money, or wait till your player’s stamina replenishes. Honestly, you don’t really need to spend money in this game and you can safely disable in-app purchases on your phone What Are In-App Purchases & How Can I Disable Them? [MakeUseOf Explains] "I can’t believe it!" my cousin said to me the other day, "someone’s just bought a $10 in-app purchase on my mother’s phone, and she doesn’t even know what I’m talking about!". Sounds familiar? How... Read More knowing you won’t need them. With a roster of six players, you can easily be playing regularly with short breaks. Handily, the app sends a notification when the stamina bar is full, so you know when you can start playing again.

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble!


You choose a team of three to face a team of three, but there’s some back story here too. There are natural alliances between good guys and bad guys, which helps decide how you form teams. Pair up a team of three good guys or three bad guys and you’ll boost either their health or damage.


In a fight, you can switch between characters at any time, like a tag-team match. It’s actually a part of the strategy. The controls are the same for each player—tap the screen for attacks, swipe for power attacks, and tap the adrenaline bar for special moves. The adrenaline bar (which fills during the match) is split into three sections for three types of special moves—each requiring on-screen interaction like rapid swiping or a well-timed tap to inflict maximum damage. Each player also has a “super move”, which is an exaggerated version of their famous finishing moves in wrestling. It’s campy fun!

The uncomplicated fight mechanism makes WWE Immortals easy to get into. Before you know it, you’ll have a pavlovian response of picking up your phone every time a notification says that the stamina bar is full.

Classic Gaming Elements Done Right

It refers to the simple cycle of doing things -> earning money -> buying stuff to do more things. That’s just one of the classic gaming elements that WWE Immortals does right. The endless loop keeps you wanting to play more.


Another classic element is the long campaign with boss battles, one of those things we miss about old school video games 3 Things I Miss About Old School Video Games Times change, and I understand that; but does that mean I cannot yearn for the old days? I cannot be the only one who misses some things about the good old days of video games,... Read More . WWE Immortals has a long single-player campaign, although you can hop online at any time for some multiplayer fun (and add characters to your arsenal). Each stage has a series of battles, with a final boss fight that ups the difficulty levels. Any gamer will know the rush of beating a difficult boss, and WWE Immortals perfectly walks the tightrope between “stupidly difficult” and “engagingly challenging.”

If you enjoy fighting games on your mobile, you can’t go wrong with WWE Immortals. Even if you aren’t familiar with the WWE right now, it’s a whole lot of fun.

    Wow thanks for letting me know! Don't you think that kind of really devalues the game? Fighting games are all about being able to read and adapt to new play styles and having npcs just ruins that concept..

    That's weird that they never clarify that in the game description. In the app description it reads "Take on real opponents in online battles and compete against players from around the world in live, in game events..."

    • abhishek
      January 24, 2015 at 10:34 am

      Totally agree with you, there is no fun playing stats- based multiplayer, i never loose a battle, i was also thinking the same as you did 2-3 days ago when, but i realised it when i paused the game,and left an online battle in between and came back after 1hour, still i saw that, that game was still running and i can still resume it

      At that point i realised that why i was winning each and every matches and every time the opponent was using the same moves and same time to react

      So i left the game that day only, and un installed it, only because of that reason

      I would love to install it again in future if a real time online match comes up in the next update!

    • Mihir Patkar
      January 24, 2015 at 10:39 am

      I actually don't think a real-time online matchup for a game like this would be good at this time. You see, it's a game that's heavily dependent on your XP and available stamina. To have a good online matchup, you'd need someone else with similar cards to go up against. Otherwise, it's going to be a mismatch. To find a similarly skilled opponent at the same time as you're going to be online, this early in the game's life? I don't think it would happen too often. A stats-based system works better right now. But eventually, if there is a big enough base of online players, then it makes sense to go for real-time matches!

  27. Jon
    January 23, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    Okay so I have noticed that you get notifications about how you were "attacking" when you weren't even online. The multiplayer option is so seamless, I have never played a game where someone quit. So is this game actually one-to-one combat online? Or do you just play against bots with their stats? I'm starting to think you don't play against real people. I literally never lose even when I'm playing a team that all has more than twice my health and damage per character. I've played for like 5 days and am in top 15%.... Something just doesn't add up. Is this real multiplayer? Anyone know?

    • Mihir Patkar
      January 23, 2015 at 4:07 pm

      Nope, what you said is right, it's not real multiplayer, it's stats-based multiplayer. My "team" uses my card stats and it's submitted to the database. You can start playing against bots with my stats.

Anyone else having these issues?

    • Johnson
      January 20, 2015 at 1:20 pm

      The online mode is where you'll make your coins. Sign in every day and every 2 days you'll get a coin bonus of 2,000 to 6,000. Play online and you'll rise through the tournament ranks and you'll get a decent coin payout (current one I should get 18,000 to 20,000). Do the daily challenges that pay out about 10,000 coins a day in total. Playing offline will get you nowhere sadly.

    • Mihir Patkar
      January 21, 2015 at 9:06 am

      Like Johnson said, the daily quests are the best way to earn coins. You can even try revisiting older campaign challenges you've already completed. Pick the last successful one, that's the one with the most amount of coins on offer.

  36. Wanderlust
    January 17, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    Main problem with it verses Injustice is that Immortals has a TON of bugs. Not mentioning them in this article is a huge oversight.

    AI opponents occassionaly tag in on top of each other and both can attack.

    Opponents tag out but are still doing damage while the one tagged in blocks.

    Opponents tag out in the middle of super moves.

    Presses and swipes are slow and unresponsive, and the AI gets to use super moves immediately on tag in while your character can do nothing.

    I played Injustice back when it first released, and it had none of these issues when it first launched. It was missing multiplayer and gear and champion ranking with multiple copies of a card, but it was still a good base.

    Immortals feels like a cheap chinese knock off along the same vein as Robots versus zombies. Had they simply taken the Injustice base and added new artwork I would be in love with this just as much. Perhaps they will fix these issues and all will be well, but for now color me unimpressed.

    • Mihir Patkar
      January 18, 2015 at 10:12 am

      Apart from a bug where the distance between the two characters is too much while still executing a super move (so it looks like Kane is chokeslamming the other guy with Jedi mind trick), I haven't faced any of the issues you've mentioned here so far. And I'm pretty addicted to the game already :D

    • Johnson
      January 20, 2015 at 11:39 am

      I'm having all the same bugs that Wanderlust has, the double tag I wasn't even sure was a bug because it happens so often. Another one is if you use Paige to knock down the special meter of the opponent, they can still use a special against you even if they have an unfilled bar! This mainly happens in the Online mode rather than offline. Haven't been able to get through a 5 match tournament because by the time I get about 4 fights in, the computer is at a high enough level (say, 2x mine) that the bugs kill any chance I have of winning.

    • Johnson
      January 21, 2015 at 11:05 am

      iOS on an iPhone 6. There even looks to be bugs in the tournament prize list... some of the progressions between the ranks just don't make sense. By going up one of the ranks, you actually earn less Uncommon Gear than the one previous. And some ranks have two listings for Uncommon Gear! It's a fun game but holy crap, it needs some care and attention. I'm sure there'll be bug fixes soon at least.

    • Mihir Patkar
      January 23, 2015 at 4:09 pm

      Chris- You are right! That shows WB's laziness. They could have at least tweaked the gameplay so that the brilliant concept could actually be enjoyable. Instead, they resorted to cheap money minting tactics and the game was spoiled!
