Still, an undercurrent of critique emerges on aspects like its retrograde visuals and the rather anaemic substance in its character creation suite. To add salt to the wound, it seems the game is dogged by a litany of technical hitches, more pronounced on the older generation machinery.

Twitter, the virtual agora, has been swamped by grievances about AEW Fight Forever buckling under the weight on the PlayStation 4. Such complaints and moans stirred publisher THQ Nordic to jump on its Twitter soapbox, reassuring irate players that they are cognisant of the issues and diligently ironing out AEW Fight Forever’s bugs for PlayStation 4 consoles.

This snag, cropping up in AEW Fight Forever, feels like a punch in the gut for many, given the lengthy three-year gestation of the game. As highlighted earlier, the game has garnered a hearty clap from many for its nod to nostalgic gameplay and fiercer action. But there’s a consensus among critics that Fight Forever’s successor could use a bit of buffing. Even AEW’s own heavyweight, Kenny Omega, who had a finger in the Fight Forever’s creation and promotion pie, recently fired off social media posts to welcome player feedback and assure one and all that the game will enjoy continued support even after its official launch.

One can only keep their fingers crossed that the PS4 crash issue can be squashed promptly, especially considering the already contentious standing of AEW Fight Forever among the mingling fandoms of wrestling and video games. With the game having been on the shelves for less than a week at the time of penning this, there’s ample opportunity for THQ Nordic and Yuke’s to turn the tide on the bugs that plague its performance on yesteryear’s systems.
