What's it about?
WWE All Stars is an arcade wrestling title featuring stars from the past and present of World Wrestling Entertainment, such as John Cena, Randy Orton, Hulk Hogan, and \"Macho Man\" Randy Savage. The game's main mode is Path of Champions, where players can battle for the World Heavyweight Championship or World Tag Team titles. There's also Fantasy Warfare, which pairs a past and present star in a match to determine who's best. There are also Exhibition matches for a quick jump into the ring.
Is it any good?
WWE All Stars is a simple, fun wrestling title. Unlike the Smackdown vs. Raw series, it features controls that are easier to grasp and highly-stylized characters. Attacks such as body slams look more outrageous thanks to slow-motion effects and exaggerated motions. The roster of characters features great balance between the present-day stars and wrestling legends such as Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant. Although the game modes are thin, which limits replayability, All Stars is great alternative for players seeking a simpler wrestling experience.
Online interaction: The game features online matches with open chat.
