Review from a casual fan!
5 December 2019 | by markovd111See all my reviews

This was fun! Matches were interesting and there were some risky stunts which got me rewinding to see how they pulled it off. There wasn't too much stalling and it was an overall enjoyable experience, so that's why I give it 7.5/10, and as always, watch it for relaxing your nerves and brain. Enjoy! :D ;)
