Summary: First off, it should be stated that one really cannot compare this to the WWE Smackdown vs. Raw games by THQ. The TNA brand tries to differ itself from the WWE; and the same can be said about this game. Most of the negative reviews for this game are probably based on that comparison. Now with that being said, TNA iMPACT! is a wrestling game that can be enjoyed; IF you can forgive some of the flaws.
Summary: You create your own guy to story mode and unlock achievements and characters. The first few matches are easy. Then you get a tag team partner. Later matches take several rematches to beat, at least for me, but the story continues forward regardless of how many rematches on the same guy until you eventually win the match. It froze twice on two stints in Japan and then near the end- a la Nintento- blow on it, etc and some dirt just needed to be cleaned.
Summary: tna impact needs improvement to the game by updating their roster with more female characters and needs work on how your tag team partener reacts on your behalf. The roster in svr 2010 and 2011 are more update than any tna game out their games.Don't get this game it's to weak
