  1. Unfortunately, the simplicity went a notch too far, and instead of a fun, arcade-like romp through memories of wrestling yesteryear, we're left with a wrestling game that has the best roster in 10 years, but some of the least challenging and least fun gameplay.

    I liked all the trophies, legends and and game modes and all but the cheat codes and they only gave you 4 managers to choose from!

    Ok this game wasn't great @ all, however the content of videos and old theme music were really cool and makes this game a worthy Ok this game wasn't great @ all, however the content of videos and old theme music were really cool and makes this game a worthy (DISCOUNTED) purchase 4 all throwback wrestling fans in their mid 2 late 20's like me and all those that are older & still play video games. The ability 2 import all of the wrestlers from SvR 2010 and even my created wrestlers was pretty sweet but I wish it also included the downloaded wrestlers that I paid an extra $10 for on PSN, now that would've been really cool. Unfortunately the fighting mechanic was entirely 2 simplistic but thank God it wasn't as awful as tna impacts controls (ugh). I honestly didn't play the game online due 2 the fact that SvR 2010's online lagging discouraged me & once I easily obtained every bit of content and every trophy I just didn't care 2 play it any further. The presentation of the Retro theme was awesome but the overall gameplay was a friggin mess, and hopefully if there's another LOW it'll be significantly better. Full Review »
