Past legends grapple with modern superstars in WWE All Stars, an arcade-style take on professional wrestling. Playable in glasses-free 3D, the 3DS game follows the high-flying, ground-pounding format of earlier versions of the title. With a selection of more than forty superstars from decades of WWE competition, fans battle through fantasy matches involving Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H, John Cena, or their own custom star. Characters are more stylized than realistic, with exaggerated physiques and over-the-top moves.
Wrestlers are categorized in four classes: brawler, acrobat, grappler, and "big man." Class influences attributes, such as speed and power, and determines the moves available to players. Attacking and taunting a rival in the ring fills an energy meter, enabling wrestler-specific "extreme" moves. In a departure from traditional wrestling games, each grappler in WWE All Stars has a simple health bar. As in a one-on-one fighting game, the goal is to deplete the opponent's health and then finish him off in dramatic fashion. ~ All Game Guide
