Excerpt: It has to be said that in recent years the WWE SmackDown! series has been losing its way, following the strong entry in the franchise that was Here Comes the Pain, it has sadly been mostly downhill since then. Finally, after years alone, THQ’s wrestling series has some competition in the form of TNA iMPACT!. I’ll say this right now; don’t expect to find the vast amount of features that you would in a SmackDown!
Conclusion: Concept: Spike TVs Thursday night hit, which features wrestlers like Christian Cage, Kurt Angle, and Shark Boy, finally makes its way to a console near you
Graphics: Sweaty guys look as good as they are going to, and the animations transition flawlessly between attacks
Sound: Annoying in-game commentary, as the TNA announcers seemingly go out of their way to get under your skin
Playability: The game only boasts 25 pro wrestlers, which wouldn't be such a big deal if they...
Summary: Holding true to the brutal nature of the show, TNA Impact's gameplay dishes out a ton of pain. The laughable AI is deserving of a smack to the forehead, and if your body is flexible, the shoddy clipping and physics demand a knee to one's own face. The gameplay mechanics are sound ? until bodies pass through each other, attacks don't register, and transitional timing has you doing moves you didn't intend.
Conclusion: ACHIEVEMENTS: Ok gamerscore very hard story related as i sayed above the games hella hard so would have to say gamerscore is gonna end up with like 300 to maybe 400 So over all i recommend if you want a wrestling game get a WWE game one of the Smackdown VS Raw games is your best bet an okay game...but poor graphics and gameplay...
Excerpt: If you’ve ever dreamed of being under the bright lights of TNA, taking on all comers inside the famous six-sided ring, this is as close as you can get without a concussion. TNA Impact allows you to step inside the ring and mix it up with some of the most well known professional wrestlers in the world. You can be Kurt Angle, Christian Cage, AJ Styles, or even trade punches with Samoa Joe, the LAX, or countless others.
Summary: As with TNA’s wrestling, this game has a ton of great ideas that are poorly executed, and it feels as if nobody could be bothered focusing on any one aspect of the game for long enough to flesh it out. What we have here feels like a punch of half-built houses. It’s not a bad game, but with a little more time and effort it could have been a very good one.
Conclusion: Midway’s wrestling come back title is a great
one! It’s long overdue but worth the wait. TNA
iMPACT has gone a long way toward making the
“sports entertainment” as unique as possible in
the ring, and Midway captures most of the
experience at the palm of your hand. The game’s
Story Mode is quite a spectacle with its
never-ending twist to the plot that has you
constantly switching allies.
Conclusion: have been so many wrestling videogames released. One of the newest is a first-time wrestling effort from Midway, which brings TNA (Total Nonstop Action) wrestling to the Xbox 360 with TNA iMPACT! (apparently there’s the need for an exclamation point – along with a crazy spelling of “impact” ‑ to really, really make some kind of impression of excitement, or something of the sort).
Conclusion: Overall, TNA iMPACT! does what it set out to do, but some glaring problems keep the game from achieving anything beyond mediocre once you stop and take it all in. Future installments will likely fix some of the issues that plague this release, but there's not much to worry about, because TNA iMPACT! doesn't suck...it just doesn't hit the bar it seemed to be aiming for.
