GamerSyndrome at E3 2010: WWE All Stars Hands-on

Immediately after testing out WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011, I headed a few paces to my left and checked out the playable demo for the upcoming WWE All Stars.  I got to talking with the demonstrator during my hands-on time with the game, and we discussed all things wrestling.  From the saddening release of Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) to the wrestling games of old.

As I played All Stars, I found that the game had an arcade feel to it.  It was fast-paced and the controls were simple.  The wrestlers featured an exaggerated look, with overly broad shoulders and huge forearms, and they performed their moves in an insane manner.  The Rock leapt high into the air to perform his Rock Bottom, and John Cena dropped his opponent flat on his neck after performing his signature FU—er, excuse me—Attitude Adjustment.

The whole thing felt completely crazy, but it was definitely fun, and the simple control scheme reminded me a lot of the great Day of Reckoning games.  The demonstrator couldn’t go too into detail in regards to roster size and modes, but he did give me—and you, our great GamerSyndrome readers—the following things to look forward to:

  • The game will feature current Superstars and Legends.
  • The launch date will be after SmackDown vs. Raw 2011, most likely during early 2011.
  • A number of arenas from Pay-Per-Views will be included.
  • Match types such as Cage and Hell in a Cell are expected to appear in the game.
