WWE All Stars: 5 Reasons You Need to Get This Video Game
WWE and THQ will be releasing their latest video game endeavor, WWE All Stars, on March 29. The new arcade-style game will be available for PlayStations 2 and 3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360 and is available for pre-order now.
In this slideshow we'll take a look at five reasons you absolutely have to get this game and how it's so different from WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011, a game you may have just gotten.
So here we go—five reasons you absolutely have to get WWE All Stars.
Think Mortal Kombat, but in HD, and with WWE Superstars and Legends. The characters are larger-than-life powerhouses who throw opponents high into the air, have super-powered finishers and can jump higher than Rey Mysterio on a trampoline.
It's what most would classify as "arcade-style," which is a very fun and energetic change of pace from the super-realism of SmackDown vs. Raw.
This is, hands down, the greatest roster ever in a WWE video game. You've got The Undertaker, Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Ricky Steamboat, The Rock, John Cena and many other stars of yesterday and today in this game.
The roster gets a 10 out of 10, and we may never see a roster this extensive and made up of all these greats ever in another WWE game. That is, unless there is a sequel to this game.
This ties right in with having such an amazing roster. You can put the stars of yesterday in matches with the superstars of today.
Any dream match you have featuring WWE legends and current superstars, you can play it out on this game—from John Cena vs. the Ultimate Warrior to the Big Show vs. Andre the Giant.
SmackDown vs. Raw is great, but you can't have those matches.
It's a Challenge
This game isn't an easy win. This is no SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 for the Wii, where you'll win your match in 30 seconds after three punches and your finisher.
Each match is different, and none are squashes. Each match is its own event in itself, and you won't just steamroll through the entire game in one night.
Even experienced gamers can find a challenge in this game. After all, The Undertaker vs. Andre the Giant shouldn't be a quick match.
You Won't Get Bored
This ties into the game being a challenge. You're paying $50 for a game, so you probably want some bang for your buck.
If you play a game for a half hour and feel like, "Well, that's that," then the game did not do its job.
Between the endless match possibilities and the fact that the matches themselves are not easy wins, you won't get bored with this game anytime soon. As a matter of fact, it's pretty addicting.
