Jan 7, 2013WWE All-Stars is a Arcade Wrestling game for the Nintendo 3DS. The character roster is a whopping 43 professional wrestlers from the past and present with all Downloadable Content characters from the console version already on the 3DS game card when you buy it. Audio for music and voice work is simply amazing in quality while sound effects are dynamic. Each professional wrestler has a specific class that identifies their strong and weak points. Brawlers are good at striking attacks but weak at grapple moves and submissions, Grapplers are good at grapple moves and submissions but weak at striking, Acrobats are fast and good at aerial attacks but low endurance, Big Men are Strong but lack speed and aerial talent. You can create your own wrestler if you wish but the editing options are rather limited overall. The game consists of five main game modes: Exhibition where you set up a match and its rules and play it (Standard, Tag, Cage, Extreme, Elimination, Score), Path of Champions where there are three short Story mode campaigns for the WWE Title (Randy Orton), World Heavyweight Title (Undertaker) and Tag Team Titles (Triple H and Shawn Micheals: Degeneration X), Fantasy Warfare where you can watch promo video packages and then pick sides and participate in a fantasy past versus present match, Local Play mutiplayer and finally Gauntlet where you run through 42 other superstars using one of your choice. There are some rare glitches such as enemy wrestlers getting stuck on corners, cage walls or a downed opponent until you hit them or the thing blocking their movement moves away in the case of a downed opponent, getting under the ring after falling off a cage or some visual errors in some intro and victory scenes for example. None of these glitches overly break the game in any way even though they usually give you an edge in matches if they occur and they only seem to occur to Artificial Intelligence controlled opponents as these have never happened to me when playing. Overall, if you are a fan of over the top arcade-like wrestling action, pick up this game, if you want something more like a wrestling simulation game with more emphasis on custom content and realistic gameplay, look up the yearly Smackdown Vs Raw Series / WWE Series of games. If wrestling games are not your forte, you should probably avoid this game. Collapse… Expand
Dec 19, 2011I realy like wrestling, it's all about over the top fun, and that's what this game brings to the 3DS.
There is a ton of fighters to choose from, many of them is classic legendary warriors like Hulk Hogan, Sargent Slaughter and Andre the Giant.
The gameplay is fluid and changes a lot from each of the 4 classes of fighters (Brawler, Big Man, Grappler and Acrobat) and each character is different on his own way.
The downside is the bugs that usually occurs, like in the last match of the Undertaker campaign, after you beat him the game freezes, and you have to restart the 3DS and play the last match again (winning this time don't causes the freeze). The other problem is the lack of a online mode. For me, in a world that almost every place has a wi-fi connection, a portable game without wi-fi multiplayer is loosing a lot of potential, and that occurs with this game.
The game is good, fun. For me worth his price, i hope to see more efforts on 3DS of the WWE franchise, but this time with a wi-fi mode.… Expand
