Very Good

Good, but not great

I've played this series since the first on the original PlayStation. Though I'm not too big on their programming these times, I guess I can say buying WWE games is like a tradition of sorts. The game looks very similar to last year's version, which isn't too surprising. The controls take a bit of getting used to, especially after being the same for the last few iterations, but I'm willing to re-learn. The hit detection is somewhat questionable (at times), which is disappointing, especially after it seems like it was fixed. The limb-targeting system is actually pretty cool, and, provided you're willing to utilize it, it gives matches depth, something we haven't really seen since No Mercy on the N64 or even Here Comes The Pain. Overall, I'd say it's good, but not great. Being an old school fan, I'd say the lackluster roster is probably the only thing that kills my motivation to play it a bit, but I'm sure the extra content will make it worthwhile. Definitely try before you buy.

Great, but not the best

I'm a huge WWE game fan and this game has it all from, the graphics, features, new items, better rosters, but the controls are the worst. WWE '12 controls are so weird from last years, that I can't seem to do grapples on the opponent and the way the "Breaking Point" is for submissions is frustrating. Other than the controls of the game, this is a great game. They don't have the training area anymore, which could've been better to learn the controls. The new features include: Create-An-Arena, Create a custom movie, plus the new shows and even more rosters. Overall, I'd give this game a B+.
