Excerpt: By Kevin "Berserker" Hall Player(s): 1-4 Extra Features: Online Multiplayer (2-4 players), Leaderboards, Add-On Content If you've ever been a fan of wrestling then surely you'll have your own favorite wrestler along with the larger than life persona that they had or still have in their career. WWE All Stars brings a player back to the glory days of wrestling and matches up older wrestlers against the wrestlers of today.
Summary: " WWE All Stars " is a return to the roots of wrestling games and a return to form for THQ. If you have fond memories of the N64 generation or are a fighting game fan with a hankering for the squared circle, WWE All Stars has plenty to offer.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I remember watching wrestling matches on TV and how I would sit glued to the screen as soon as I popped the VHS in (remember VHS?). The magic of the ringside action, the cheering fans, and the flamboyant wrestler entrances made the entire event a worthy spectacle to watch. Of course wrestling has undergone a number of changes since then, but it’s still a lot of fun to watch these incredible athletes in action.
Excerpt: WWE All-Stars strives to offer a light-hearted take on wrestling to differentiate itself from the more sim-styled SvR games, and succeeds wonderfully. While initial play and especially online video viewing may paint the game as lacking depth, it actually has quite a bit thanks to its inclusion of light and strong strikes and grapples like in the Aki engine games as well as being able to attack at any time during a move ala the Day of Reckoning series.
Excerpt: Two years ago, Legends of WrestleMania hit the scene with a dream roster and unrivaled authenticity with its retro presentation, but didn’t really succeed much as an actual game due to its awkward engine. Now, the idea of past vs. present has been revisited with far better results. Ironically, a reworked, and thankfully polished, version of the TNA Impact game engine is what gives this game many of its bright spots.
Conclusion: WWE All Stars bietet ein umfangreiches Spielvergnügen und jeder der einfach mal loslegen wollte mit Wrestling kann hier seine helle Freude erleben. Durch das schnelle und unterhaltsame Spielerlebnis wird man regelrecht mit in den Ring gezogen und staunt nicht schlecht wenn ein Finisher Move vollführt wird. Einlegen, loslegen und Spaß haben wird hier praktiziert!
