A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

All conflicts between wrestlers are solved with matches inside (and sometimes outside) the ring.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Just like real pro wrestling, the game features "good guys" and "heels," or villains.

Ease of Play

Compared to other wrestling titles, this game is much simpler to control. Players have light and heavy punches/kicks and light and heavy grapples. As players build up a blue meter, they can hit two buttons simultaneously to perform a signature move. Once an opponent is weakened, players can then tap and hold the shoulder buttons to execute a finishing move.

Violence

Players perform the standard punches, kicks, and other wrestling moves such as body slams. In some matches, players can also use weapons, such as chairs or baseball bats. There are finishing moves. However, players won't see any blood or gore.

Sex
Language

The only questionable words heard in the game were "damn" and "ass."

Consumerism

This is a game that provides more exposure to the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and as such, can be viewed as a marketing tool.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

When wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin appears, players may hear some references to beer.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that WWE All Stars is a simple, arcade wrestling title based on World Wrestling Entertainment. It features past and present wrestlers competing in matches, with the goal of becoming a world champion. As with any wrestling game, players punch, kick, and grapple their way to victory. They can sometimes use weapons such as chairs. The game is playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.

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.
