Fans of the WWE tune in every week to watch all their favorite superstars in shows that are part choreographed stunt show, part soap opera, and part gladiatorial games. WWE Mayhem brings that same feeling to mobile devices with an over-the-top fighting game that's heavy on action and character, but also buried under a business model that forces players to tap out to a choke hold of microtransactions. The result is a game that's fun to play, but expensive to maintain.

On the positive side, WWE Mayhem does a fantastic job of leaning into the larger than life personas of the WWE superstars. The characters are cartoonishly exaggerated, leaving behind any sense of realism in favor of a style that makes them superhuman. Character soar through the air to ridiculous heights before slamming opponents down with seismic force. And yet, the game's controls make all of this action feel smooth and fluid. Unfortunately, it's not long before players hit a plateau, unable to make much progress or to add better characters to their rosters unless they're willing to spend extra money. Worse still, these purchases usually take the shape of package deals that never feel like they're actual "deals." While you can earn some necessary resources and characters through grinding the gameplay, it takes way too long and leaves players way too underpowered to make any actual progress. As a result, unless you're a huge WWE fan, you may tap out before fully diving into the chaos of WWE Mayhem.
