Stay Away!

In the game, there is Chris Benoit, the former wrestler who did a double Murder suicide. Bad overtones.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (10):

The graphics are amazing, and the game excels at offering many modes of play. The downside? The controls are complicated, and casual players may especially be frustrated during matches.

Overall, parents should wrestle with their feelings about TV wrestling before investing in this game. OK with it? Then, you -- and your teen -- will find plenty to enjoy in this well-produced title.
