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.
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...
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.
Excerpt: Gamers in the UK may not be familiar with the WWE’s newest competitor, but they should probably read up if that’s the case. TNA is Total Nonstop Action wrestling, and the promotion has not only nabbed some of Vince McMahon’s biggest stars (Kurt Angle, Christian), but has also revolutionised the sports entertainment business with a new hexagonally shaped wrestling ring. Midway’s TNA IMPACT! Engine is pretty impressive.
Excerpt: After years of hype and development time, TNA Impact delivers a poor experience that neither does justice to TNA’s extremely talented roster or to pro wrestling. The end product features gameplay that is broken, archaic and also suffers from some puzzling glitches while offering up very little new and not executing anything particularly well.
Excerpt: Since this is a first effort, I wasn’t realistically expecting state-of-the-art gameplay across the board, but Impact’s gameplay is simply too outdated. Basic gameplay elements are missing, the mode selection is sparse, and the create-a-wrestler mode is overly limited compared to anything released in the past half-decade.
Conclusion: Midway has put together an okay first attempt here with TNA iMPACT!. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time, and it's not as good as I hoped it would be, but it also surprised me in good ways I wasn't expecting. The potential is really there, but this first entry is rough around the edges.
