What do I do when the Hulkster goes wild on me? Well, in WWE All-Stars, I can try to battle back with my wrestler.
This game is a standard fighting game that features several stars of today’s WWE as well as iconic figures from the past (like Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage and Jake the Snake Roberts).
There are several options for you to consider.
First off is a single match where 1-4 players can pick their wrestler and unleash their fury inside the ring. There are options for a steel match, a tag team match or elimination.
Second is the path to champions where you pick one wrestler and have him compete in a ten round tournament
Third is the Fantasy Warefare where there are up to 14 set matches which you pick one wrestler try to beat the other one.
And last is the Create a Superstar where you name your wrestler, pick a set of moves from one of the iconic wrestlers, pick a finishing move, pick an entrance from a set, change the appearance. You can use this wrestler in any of the other modes.
The gameplay isn’t that tough to figure out; it’s mostly A to punch, B for wrestling moves, Z with A or B for a more powerful attack, and C with A or B for a counter. This can be a lot of fun for four WWE fans to duke it out in the ring with their favorite wrestler.
But this game should’ve gotten an online mode, the commentators repeat lines far too often, and the presentation is a bit on the bland side.
Still, WWE All Stars delivers all of the excitement of your standard professional wrestling match between the biggest stars - past and present - of the WWE. RENT IT.
I had my eye on this game for a while now and just didn't want to spend the $50 on the game, and am glad I waited to rent it. The graphics are poor to fair, everybody looks way too jacked and it has nothing to keep you comming back for more. Save your money and rent it and if you still want to buy go used.

I recently played this game and thought it was alright. It features many of the wrestlers that I grew up watching when I was a child as well as the new ones of today. The graphics are ok the wrestlers dont have much animation and dont really look like their real life counter parts. The arenas are subpar you have raw smackdown and a generic arena. The gameplay modes get boring especially path of a champion where you keep doing single matches and elimination matches. I would not recommend this game to anyone there are definetly better wrestling games out there.
