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: i have beaten this entire game.dont get me wrong.i like but... 1-ive played much better wrestling games on the n64 2-the controls are confusing 3-each wrestler has a very limited amount of moves 4-the create a character is a joke 5-if you get pinned,you lose even a minute into it.the only way to avoid this is by franticly and violently jerking the stick all around.ive kicked out once out of about 100 times.
Summary: There was a lot of hype for this game for many wrestling fans. It doesn't quite live up to it. The Bad: -The game still has a few bugs, I mean I was once gored by Rhino but he came no where near me. -The reversal engine needs work. I'm not sure what it is but the player can never reverse a reversal. -The Create a Wrestler is really limited -The wrestling moves are really limited. A lot of the wrestlers have some of the same moves.
Excerpt: "Most of TNA's main event wrestlers are in the game Samoa Joe, Aj Styles, Kurt Angle, Sting, Jeff Jarrett and more. Some of the best things about the game are the controls, You can perform some very fluid wrestling with a combo of moves, that look great on the screem too. The Story of the game in one player mode i really enjoyed, playing as a Former world champion that lost his memory, and had to start his career again to get back to the top. Plus ...
Pros: Good Control System, Good Single Player Story, All the Main Stars are there
Cons: Limited Multiplayer options, Wrestlers basic moves too similar
Conclusion: first off this game isnt wwe its a rival it lacks gamemodes of wwe but its still enjoyable the story mode short but a.i is tuff at tyms but online i havent had any slowdown gameplay takes bit of tym to get use to not bad at this price nice for achievements i have 800 so far
Veel potentie, maar er moet nog veel bijgeschaafd worden

Excerpt: Vanaf eind jaren tachtig ben ik een fan van American wrestling. Amerikaans worstelen, zoals Nederlanders het noemen, is vooral bekend door Hulk Hogan en biedt een mix van gedeeltelijk gescripte (de winnaar staat vast) worstelwedstrijden en een behoorlijke dosis entertainment. Enkele jaren geleden ontdekte ik de worstel spel reeks WWE Smackdown vs Raw. WWE staat voor World Wrestling Entertainment en heette vroeger WWF (World Wrestling Federation).
Pros: Mooie animaties, snel, echt commentaar
Cons: Paar problemen in de bediening, te weinig opties
Excerpt: No se confien mucho con este titulo, yo le doy 3 estrellas porque tiene unas graficas geniales, pero no puedo poner mas si no he jugado el juego. Solo quiero dejar en claro que la edicion del smackdown vs raw 2008 me dejo bastante decepcionado. El mismo tipo de control de hace años y apenas unas miserables mejoras, asi no pues, señores. Tengo entendido que midway en el pasado ha creado exelentes juegos de lucha libre, hay que darles credito.
