FnJimmy brought over WWE All Stars the other night and I just watched. Here's my take on what I saw. I guess I should have known better than to let FnJimmy demo a game for me.
The graphics in WWE All Stars is the first this you are going to notice when ever you see this game. They are over the top and extreme. All of the wrestlers look crazy, especially Sheamus. There isn't that many wrestlers to choose from at the beginning, you have to unlock a lot. Jimmy of course hasn't unlocked any. There are no divas in the game sad face. Kofi Kingston?! Really, really? Really?
You can do 4-man tornado tag matches [All four guys in the ring at the same time.] Cage matches. Triple Threats are another option. But that was about it. I didn't get to see much of the actual strategy in the game, because well it was Jimmy. I'm sure there is though, you get rated at the end of every match like Street Fighter. There's gotta be some technique, there's a counter button.
The titantrons are accurate, short and to the point. You don't have to watch the guy walk all the way down to the ring thank god. Howard Finkle is the announcer and that brings back some memories. WWE All Stars also has Create a Wrestler, but it's kept short. This works out fine in the game. I'm not to interested in spending hours creating a wrestler. Move sets are selected so you can pick a Rey Mysterio size guy and then attach Andre The Giant's moves. That's cool.
This CAW below we created in about 5 minutes. Choke is our stand by video game stunt man of course. Totally fucking with some of the settings we maximized the depth of his abdomen and wait until you see this pointy mess. That's what she said.
