WWE 12

 

 

SCORE: 56

 

WWE 12 

 

Professional wrestling has some of the craziest fans. The WWE made an effort to be more family friendly. What about their video games? I took WWE 12 for a spin around the squared circle to see. As you can see from my score WWE 12 is an abysmal failure. Why though?

WWE 12 is all about the violence. Pummel your opponent into submission. Pin them for the win. There are other matches like you have to throw them into fire, escape a cage, be the last man standing, get them to submit, etc. Men and women wear little clothing in WWE 12. I object to the ESRB’s mild suggestive themes. These are not mild. They are extreme, and over the top.

The excitement over the blood, gore, violence, and heavy enticement to lust issues are amplified by the announcers. By the way why is Jerry the king Lawler an unlockable character? I can think of plenty better personalities to include. The ring entrance music is neat, and some of it can get stuck in your head.

What struck me as odd is there are few interesting characters to play in WWE 12. The most interesting must be unlocked in insane ways, or purchased. Yes PURCHASED! As if THQ did not make enough money on selling the game, they wanted even more by having you pay a dollar per cool wrestling personality. I did not get my moneys worth out of WWE 12 for what they included. Adding more money into the mix is an insult.

The action in WWE 12 is straight forward unless you are in some kind of a speciality match. Then it can take some getting used to. Especially when it comes to winning those matches. I had to quit and give up a couple of them because I could never figure out how to finish it. The announcers will tell you what to do, but no direction on how to do it.

In some matches I did the finisher move four and five times. The repetitive nature of WWE 12 can be extremely boring. The presentation in WWE 12 is high, and it is getting really close to the real thing. Which is actually a fake thing, but you know what I mean. WWE 12 is slightly better than watching wrestling. But there are so many better things we could be doing.
