Okay now i have played every single WWE game out there and i have to say this one SUCKS!!!!! I hope to god that WW13 is much better. My main issue with this is the fact that on Road To Wrestlemania you used to be able to Play as any superstar, or even your own superstar that you created..But Oh no you cant here, you have to play as fricken Sheamus.......I mean really, really?? How about bringing back the ability to play Road to Wrestlemania as anyone that you wish?
WWE 12 bring to us a new way to see WWE games , with all new characters and Road To Wrestlemania Mode , the game itself its fun to play with a simple gameplay and cool matches with superstars like John Cena , Randy Orton , Triple H , Cm Punk , Sheamus , Sin Cara , Stone Cold and more , the roster is big and includes actual superstars and legends , the online mode have a creation space where you can send your creations and download other creations , the matches online are pretty laggy , that really sucks , but the game have a lot of features without using internet to play , is fun , simple , but still being a great wrestling game on everything including the errors on this one , if you are a WWE fan , be sure to pick this up , if you are just an wrestling fan is a game then you dont want to miss
I know what the trailers and gameplay make it seem like. AWESOME! But no. The games graphics are great,but the gameplay and sound is bad. First, it is very boring. The RTWM seems good, but is long and there is too many backstage brawls. Also, it seems repetitive. Then goes gameplay. In SVR 11, the physics were great!The tables broke great and you could throw them on ladders and stuff. But in WWE 12, the tables actually have a glitch the it goes in the air. If you throw someone on a ladder, they just bounce off it. If you smack them with a chair, throw them off the HIAC, and bust them open, they get up in 7 seconds.There also too much "Go threw stuff glitches". Next, online. In CC, it always freezes and you can never download or upload anything. The matches lag often and it almost impossible to win with the pin and submission system. Last, we go to sound. The commentary is boring and predictable. The crowd sound is also very plain.
So if you want a WWE game from Gamestop, get WWE13
WWE '12 Review
I got this game back on Christmas Eve, and once I started playing WWE '12, I was like: Man, I miss playing wrestling games, and finally I have WWE '12. The game looks really fun to play, great WWE Superstars, attires, and all that. What I did like about WWE '12 was that you get to create your own arena and wrestle in it. They're are just a few problems with the game. The reversal button is hard to control in the game, long Road to WrestleMania, and that's it. I only played WWE '12 for a couple of days, and it's already getting boring to play. I still have yet to beat WWE '12. My final words, WWE '12 is an amazing game where there's a big roster of WWE Superstars and Divas, great match options, and amazing Create an Arena mode. For this Gamestop review I give it a 9 out of 10. I really hope I could do better if I get WWE '13.
You'd think this would be better than SvR 2011, but instead I found more fun playing previous SvR games.
-X button for grapple (Whenever opponent stuns you, you have to tap X, but immediately after regaining control, your wrestler performs a grapple).
-Unbalanced gameplay (Some wrestlers are overpowered, and overall is ignored after a finisher).
-Opponents won't stay down (You knock them down with countless finishers and weapon attacks, yet they still get up, and only stay down for 2 grapple moves).
-A broken online ("WWE'12 server unavable at this time. Please try again" is not the kind of thing that you want in this game, especially if you plan on using the community creations a lot).
-Crashing/Freezing (Yet another thing that ruins this game, and this was not the first release that showed these problems).
-Ability to change belts in WWE Universe (Very helpful if you're planning on making a dream show).
-Roster manager/Arena Creator/Custom Titantron (Adds on to the previous point).
-Little or no Difficulty in Gameplay (Which is great for kids who wants to play this, but not for hardcore gamers looking for a challenge)
Overall, its not worth paying tons of cash for this game, wait for WWE'13 which atleast has Attitude Era stars in it, buy a PS2 and SmackDown! HCTP, or hit up No Mercy for Nintendo 64. But this is not a game which will force you to break a sweat playing.
This game is great i dont know why nobody likes it
I got this game on christmas 2011 and it is awesome i was sooooooooooooooo shocked that gameinformer rated it a 4.5 that sucked im just glad a few people think the same the only problem is the commentary sometimes its WAY OFF other than that its really great ! :)
i thought this would be good they totaly switched old controls making it much harder to do moves the reversal buttons are sh1t i hate this game please stick with 10 or 09 i broke my dam controller this game is so aggravting if i couldnt get my my $ back i would have used this game for skeet fuc this game it sucks
I cannot believe how bad this game actually is. You hit the correct prompt when notified and still nothing happens. I can't believe that the Games from the PS1 are still better than this overpriced piece of absolute GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!
realistic as can be!!
this game has great graphics and is very realistic its controls are a little different but the finishers can happen at any time and is pretty cool. i bought this game on gamestop's 60% off sports games sale and got it at a low price of 18 dollars. go buy this game but get a online pass and dont buy fan axxess you can download the superstars free on community creations.
This is by far the worst wwe game out so far. This game is a disgrace it shoudn't have WWE in its title. Heres why the game is bad. Auto aim or aim assist is bad, Reversal System is broken because its easy for the AI and difficult for you, Road to Wrestlemania stories are lame this year since they dont give you the free roam ability like in SvR 2011, Hard to even get into a match online because of THQ's atrocious servers. WWE 12 was an EPIC FAIL and I swear if WWE 13 is that bad of a game then i'm never buying a WWE THQ game ever again.
