WWE All Stars is a professional wrestling video game published by THQ and developed by THQ San Diego for the PlayStation 3 andXbox 360 systems and Subdued Software for the PlayStation Portable, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 2 systems. The game features current and former WWE wrestlers competing in fast-paced wrestling matches. It was released on March 29, 2011 inNorth America and April 1, 2011 in Europe.
In contrast to the simulation-based WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series, WWE All Stars features arcade-style gameplay along with over-the-top animation and wrestlers bearing a more exaggerated look. The game is a combination of a fighting game and a wrestling game, with combos playing a major factor in gameplay, both on the ground and mid-air. Characters perform exaggerated moves, such as John Cena's Attitude Adjustment, in which he leaps high into the air and Triple H's Pedigree with shock waves running across the ring. The game features contemporary WWE wrestlers such as Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, Triple H, The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio,Big Show, Sheamus and John Cena and past wrestlers such as The Ultimate Warrior, André the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Jake the Snake, Eddie Guerrero and the "Macho Man" Randy Savage, as well as commentary from Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler, who is also a playable character.
It also features a Path Of Champions mode where players choose a WWE Legend or Superstar to either become the WWE Champion (Randy Orton's Path), the World Heavyweight Champion (Undertaker's Path) or the WWE Tag Team Champions (D-Generation-X's Path) The game also has options for using alternate attires for the WWE superstars from the past and present.
