FINALLY ... the WWE experience you've been demanding has arrived! THQ's flagship franchise in the WWE video game portfolio is reborn, delivering a completely rebuilt evolution of every aspect of the wrestling superstar experience. With new Predator Technology, an overhauled gameplay experience and new broadcast TV presentation that promises the most fluid, dynamic, authentic and action-packed WWE simulation experience to date, WWE '12 gives you more control over WWE than ever before.The Smackdown Vs. Raw series has become a yearly purchase for many wrestling fans out there, resulting in hours upon hours spent creating various superstars/divas and playing online in matches and tournaments. Throw in a compelling storyline that is included with the Road To Wrestlemania mode and you have yourself an a game that is any wrestling fan's dream. This year looks to be no different, as THQ has completely overhauled the game itself, even going so far as to rebrand it simply as WWE '12 this year. The game boasts the slogan of "Bigger, Badder, Better", and it is time to see if it lives up to this bold statement.
The roster is massive – over 60 wrestlers are available to choose from, ranging from divas to current stars. The game has several "old school wrestlers" that many will appreciate being included in the game. These include such stars like Vader and my personal favorite Brock Lesnar (who is now with UFC). This is hands down one of the best rosters available in a wrestling game, ever. THQ really went the extra mile here, and it shows. The total number of wrestlers will be expanded upon with future DLC, so there is no telling what else THQ has up their sleeves for wrestling fans with WWE '12. A few have already been revealed including Batista and Mick Foley.
Road To Wrestlemania has had a huge overhaul. It now features a much longer, more in-depth story centering around the three wrestlers Sheamus, Triple H, and custom character Jacob Cass. Each of these stories are all connected to one another in some way, and should be played accordingly for the total experience.
