Buy this Jabroni,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WWE: All Stars (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
Didn't know what to expect from this when I bought it, as I enjoy wrestling games (and even though wrestling isn't over realistic) I do still enjoy a bit of realism.
Realistic this is not. The moves are over the top, the body shapes on the wrestlers are cartoonish and overall its all a bit slapstick. (even though the WWE/WWF is renowned for that).
The graphics are good, some details could be better, the crowds and textures for example but all in all it looks nice and plays very smoothly. The 3D is a little lacking, could have used this better, like having wrestlers thrown at the screen, would have been amazing for example. The effects are top notch and the speed is spot on. Overall it looks very good on your little 3D handheld.
There are a good set of game modes, you have exibition, path of champions following your chosen wrestler against certain famous WWE/WWF wrestlers with a running story. The best of these though is the Fantasy Warfare mode. Who is the biggest superstar Hulk Hogan or John Cena? Well choose one and see if you can come out on top. Its a great idea and with a lot of choices, it really adds to the game. With standard one on one, tag team, Threeway, fourway, survival, hurricane tag, cage and hardcore match types there is plenty here.
Also one of my favourite things of wrestling games is back 'Create a wrestler'. If your all time favourite WWF/WWE star isn't present you van make them (to a certain degree). Or if your imagination is running wild, make yourself a new wrestler to take on the WWF/WWEs greatest superstars. Its easy to use with a lot of good options and offers something to do when you get a little bored with he game types.
Sadly multi-player isn't the best. Firstly their is no online multiplayer, which is a bad choice. Also there is only a two player mode, which seems strange as you can have four way bouts.
Two elements that don't make this a perfect portable wrestling experience is the KO rule and no backstage fighting.
Get your opponents health low enough and perform your finishing move and its game over for them. You don't even have to pin them yourself, it just shows you a video of your wrestler doing a showing off pin, which kind of makes the game feel like street fighter meets wrestling. You can pin yourself after a finisher but only if you haven't depleted your opponents health completely.
No back stage fighting means the arenas get a little boring and if it had have been there the game would have that little bit more longevity.
Overall this is a arcade wrestling experience with quite a lot going on. If you enjoy Wrestling/Beat em up games this game will give you hours upon hours of fun filled wrestling action.
Buy this game, because STONE COLD SAYS SO! Well he didn't actually but buy it anyway.
