    This game is like a medicine it needs to be taken in small amounts. Otherwise if you did what I did (sat there and played for 5 hours) It will be boring as hell afterward.

Otherwise if you did what I did (sat there and played for 5 hours) It will be boring as hell afterward. There are 2 modes there is story mode where they all lead you to wrestlemania. You can play 3 different story's, the undertaker story (and in all of these you have to pick a wrestler to go against that person in the story) the DX story and the Randy Ortan story and when you done with that you can do a mode where you can play matches in 2 different generation picking which generation character to go against the other generation (confusing I know) But this dose complete its goal of being over the top crazy but it has limited replay value.

    Of all of the wrestling games I have played, this is by far the best. It's over the top fun that you can play with your children and friends. It's not complex and easy to pick up and learn. The different modes give it some life and replayability. Well done.

    A Shallow Arcade
    WWE all stars is an arade wrestling game featuring a5 different superstars and 15 different legends
    However there isn’t much here to do
    In my opinion wrestling games are the best when theyre at their most ridiculous, it’s the reason here comes the pain and shut your mouth are some of my favorite wrestling games of all time so I had a lot of hopes with the one..
    The models look crazy.. the finishers are insane…
    But theres no ooprtunity to have fun here beyond an hr or 2
    The best part of the game is the path of champions mode…
    There are 3 different story lines with 10 matches each, for the undertaker, randy orton, and dx,
    Complete with fully animated and fulyl voice acted cutscenes…
    Why are these not part of every wwe game?
    they were hilarious at times and saved this game from being just a mediocre arcade wrestling game…
    They gave the game some personality…
    and theres also a fantasy warfare mode that pits legend vs superstar in a dream match..
    Such as the mz and mr perfect…
    sure they stretched a little for these dream matches.. but this mode uses every last character in the roster.. so ill let it slide…
    It’s a pretty cool mode with a well edited promo before each match…
    You pick a side and play it out…
    But the good of this game ends there….
    Match modes are limited….
    the only specialty matches here are exture rules and a steel cage…
    and neither of the 2 are interesting or fun…
    and this game features hands down the least intuitive control scheme in a wrestling game period…
    I get they wanted it to feel like a different game than the smackdown series.. the now 2k series…
    But that’s no excuse for THQ to not just straight up copy themselves or at the very least put the option there to use that perfect scheme they’ve had since the 90s
    I felt like I was bashing the shoulder pads more than the face buttons…
    the button to pin and run are right next to eachother… you can imagine how many annoying moments that creates.. as well as the button for checking under the mat and climbing back in the ring are the same….
    Running and irish whip are the same button…
    I never got an irish whip.. the most common move for me in any other game other than by accident…
    It really ruined the gameplay experience as I felt I was button mashing rather than picking and choosing my attacks…
    Which brings me to the matches themselves..
    This game is more about the ko than it is the pinfal… and you can only ko with a finisher…
    You can pin but the computer kciks out 90% of the time no matter how hurt you have them…
    And that’s if you can even get them to stay down… again this is more of an arcade fighter inside of a ring than it is your typical wrestling game… everything is fast paced and the match can turn on a dime…
    I like the concept of WWE Allstars, all the craziest superstars with over the top ridiculous moves… make them look crazy… make them fly through the air from the simplest things like punches….
    It sounds like the perfect party game…
    But the unnecessary over complication of commands and lack of any fun modes hurt the game the most…
    Its an arcade game.. if there was any time to experiment with crazy match ideas.. this was it.. and you missed your opportuniuty…
    I give WWE All Stars
    A 6.5/10

    This game is precisely what I had hoped they would deliver - simple, fun game play with mass appeal. It may not be overwhelmingly deep, but rather than feel "lacking", it seems as though they executed on a single idea: a polished fighter, based on wrestlers.

    I hope this is the direction that games in this genre start to migrate. It's over the top, hilarious, exciting. There are certainly

    I hope this is the direction that games in this genre start to migrate. It's over the top, hilarious, exciting. There are certainly things I'd like to see in the next game, but this is a beyond solid first effort. See you in the squared circle.

    Digitized world of wrestling gets even closer of the beat'em'up genre. Simplified mechanics and exaggerated graphics highlight this transition from Smackdown series. Wrestling is fun with a friend, solo wrestling is only for Monty Python. [May 2011]

    Even with its easily addressable faults, WWE All-Stars manages to brightly shine because it got the basics absolutely right.

    Still, the game is a load of fun and arguably the best professional wrestling game to come out in many years. I know that wrestling purists would say that the arcade style slam-and-jam nature of All Stars is not an accurate representation of their beloved sport - but put the controller in their hands for ten minutes, and even the hardest of the diehards will be won over.
