Ever since HCTP I have always been somehow dissapointed by a feature/disfeature in the games. The SvR series was full of new achievements, dissapointments, and new beggings. But this game is a game that has defied the laws of creativity! Something I hope rub's off on future games such as WWE 13 which comes out next November I think. I remember when I was a kid I thought sitting around playing WM for the Super Nintendo thinking that that was the best passtime ever. That's because it was back then. Now stuff like that is old school and today I have played it all day! I recommend this game to any hardcore gamer or WWE fan. For both you must get it! You will not be able to survive without this game!
It’s always fun to go into the ring to beat the heck out of somebody else – and not worry about the lost lasting ramifications of the fight. Besides, there’s a lot of fans out there who want to imitate their favorite wrestler (or create a new one).
Up to four players can go into the ring with WWE 12 in several different types of matches – from the straight forward single player match to the steel cage match to the “I Quit” match.
But the one thing I really wanted in this game is a tutorial that shows me how to do the moves – instead of a tutorial that lists a whole bunch of moves. Fighting against the AI isn’t fun because the learning curve is far too steep for me to undertake.
It’s too bad, really. This game looks great, the wrestlers perform their signature moves smoothly, and there’s some great commentary from the two guys doing the play by play calling.
And it would be a whole lot of fun to unleash a whole lot of wrestlers in the ring in a four player Royal Rumble.
The WWE 12 is one game you should try before you buy. RENT IT.
