Gameplay in this game is a bit hard to learn but once you get that hang of it you will be able to go toe to toe with Andre himself. Doing moves and finishing moves are simple in this game and that is a very good thing for the most part. You can pick up weapons and bash other players down with weapons such as a chair and crutch. One of the best things about the gameplay is how there are 4 different character classes in the game. Big Men class is the funnest because those guys have awesome power but the Acrobat class of characters are very fast moving people who can be on one end of the ring one second and the other side the next.
This game has a lot of fun modes and to me these modes are much more fun than the modes in the SVR series.
1. Fantasy Matchups is a mode that puts a Legend in a match with a current Superstar and before you play the match you pick who you want to be, and before the match you get to watch a very cool video that hypes the match between the two wrestlers.
2. Path of Champions is a mode where you fight through 10 matches to earn a title. There are 3 paths you can take one being the World heavyweight Title path, two being the WWE Championship Path, and last but not least the WWE Tag Team Championship Path. Call me old school but I like these story modes better than the ones that show up in the SVR series.
There is a lot of content in this game from several hidden outfits to several wrestlers. With a total of 30 wrestlers in this game and each one having at least one hidden outfit this game will last a while. There are hidden characters, arenas, and Fantasy Matchups.
This game is a blast for any old school WWF fan and it feels so fresh compared to the SVR series. The roster in this game is amazing and it will be so much fun to take Hulk Hogan and Macho Man (The Mega Powers) to the Tag Team Championships Brother! So if your a WWF fan of the past or a WWE fan of now buy this game and feel the Power of Hulkamania like never before Brother!
- Realism. The Wii graphics aren't usually the best, but the graphics are pretty nice for this game. It is actually about as fun to watch as it is to play.
- Commentary. The commentary is fun. Hearing Lawler and Ross commentating together again was worth the price of the game alone. And it's nowhere near as repetitive as it could be, but rather is very enjoyable to listen to!
- Slow-mo. When you do a great move, you get to see some slow-mo action. Our 10 year old son loved watching the slow-mo, but not as much as the "big" kid in the house. The big kid was made even more excited by simply watching the slow-mo than he was playing the game!
- It took a little while to figure things out, but the controls aren't too bad. And it feels almost more lifelike because you're shaking both hands and really pummeling someone.
- Controls. It took a little while to figure things out, and even though we've played for a few hours, we still have some learning to do. I'd suggest going career mode first to really get a handle on everything.
- Can't get all players right off. I wish you could, because that would be even more fun. But we'll get all of the people unlocked eventually!!
Basically, this is a very solid and decent game. The first match our family did was The Rock VS Stone Cold - and how awesome is that? If you're a fan of wrestling, then this is definitely a game to pick up!
You hit a simple punch, and your opponent goes flying. You try a finisher, and you both leap into the air, spin around and land in slow motion. You literally bounce your opponent around, juggling them with punches and kicks while they bounce around the ring.
It's got some of your typical aspects of SVD: the career mode, the unlockables, and different types of matches, though there are far less choices here simply due to the size of the ring; a ladder wouldn't fit nicely in there with the two giant characters, so you get no TLC, ladder matches, or things like that. What is glaringly absent from this game is a regular tag team match, as the only kind of tag team action you get allows all four people to be in the ring together. It works, but it is limiting.
The choice of characters is well done. One thing that I particularly liked was the fact that you have different styles of characters now. One thing I never liked about SVD was that Rey Mysterio and Big Show were basically very similar in terms of the speed at which they moved and the strategy you could use to win with them. In All Stars, the Big Men are slow and powerful, while the other smaller wrestlers can literally fly across the ring, though they do significantly less damage.
It does suffer from some convoluted controls, where shaking the wiimote does any one of five different things depending on where you are, but for most gamers, it's nothing compared to trying to hit specific moves in SVD. The sound and the announcing is also very simplistic and repetitive.
Overall, this is a great game, and one that you should seriously consider if you're a wrestling fan.
The game has Exhibition matches plus two main single-player modes: Path of Champions and Fantasy Warfare. The Path of Champions mode has three stories: World Heavyweight Champion path which ends in a showdown with The Undertaker, WWE Champion path in which you'll prove yourself against Randy Orton, and the WWE Tag-Team Champions path in which you'll work your way up to a battle with HBK and HHH as D-Generation X. Fantasy Warfare has a variety matches between wrestling legends and current superstars with a fictional title on the line, for example: Hulk Hogan vs John Cena for "Biggest Superstar", Steve Austin vs CM Punk for "Superior Lifestyle", Mr. Perfect vs The Miz for "Perfectly Awesome", and The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels for "Mr. Wrestlemania". These Fantasy Warfare matches could be quite boring, and no better than regular exhibition matches, but the developers have managed to avoid this. Each fight has a cleverly edited promo using a selection of real clips of both wrestlers in action. By the time each match began, after watching the entertaining promo, I was actually quite excited for the battle ahead.
As well as regular strikes and slams there are powerful signature moves at your disposal which can see your wrestler leaping into the air with an opponent before slamming them into the mat with great style. Successful strikes and grapples fill a momentum bar which is split into three sections. When each section of the bar is filled you're able to attempt a signature move. There is also a Finisher Meter and when this is filled, and the opponent's energy is low, you'll be able to pull off an explosive finishing move - but not right away. You must first activate a taunt and it's only when the buttons are pressed a second time, as long as the opponent is in range and doesn't break up the move with an attack of their own, that the finisher is activated. The opponents rarely stay on the mat very long which makes it difficult to taunt them and prepare yourself to perform the finisher move by the time they get back to their feet. This can be frustrating; attacking at the wrong moment may result in losing momentum and it can be difficult to pull things back in your favour when the opponent has the upper hand but the frustration is balanced by the excitement at stopping an opponent from doing the same to you.
The graphics are adequate for a Wii title and the cartoon wrestlers, with their exaggerated muscles and overall size, fits more easily with Nintendo's console than the PS3 or Xbox 360. Having said that the animations are much jerkier on the Wii and the movement of wrestlers, which already feels more sluggish than the Xbox 360 version, can suffer from slow-down and this can be frustrating. Sound is also a problem with the crowd feeling eerily lifeless, strikes and slams sounding flat, and some audio, such as the referee giving a three-count, sometimes not working at all. Also, the commentary from Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler, which is fine for the most part, can sometimes jump between audio tracks and this makes it seem as though the pair are stuttering.
When it comes to multiplayer; Wii owners have once again been short-changed with only local multiplayer available to them. I find the omission of an online multiplayer mode baffling. Wii owners understand this game can't compete with the version on Xbox 360 and PS3 when it comes to graphics and sound, given the obvious hardware differences, but not having the option to play with friends who aren't sitting next to them seems like a slap in the face.
