How are your grappling skills? Time to put them to the test with WWE '12 on PlayStation 3, where you'll be battling it out against "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry, Triple H the Cerebral Assassin and dozens of other World Wrestling Entertainment Superstars, Divas and Legends.
Don't feel too intimidated by these massive athletes - WWE '12 puts them entirely under your control. An in-game manual teaches you the basics as well as offering definitions of the skills and special abilities you'll encounter in the ring. And with the option to jump straight into an exhibition bout or take on a lengthier campaign you'll be slamming the opposition and performing a Finisher in no time.
You feel every strike and submission in the fast moving matchups, thanks to intuitive controls which allow you to slap, tackle and sling your opponent around. Get into a grapple, throw them into an Irish Whip and then roll them out the ring. As each battle can take you anywhere from backstage to the locker room, it pays to keep on your toes and learn the reversal system to counter the blows aimed at you.
Make sure you're methodical in your attacks too, as button bashing won't get you very far in WWE '12. Making full use of the targeting system to aim for your foe's weaker body parts can be the swiftest way to victory - after all, damaged legs can't run and battered arms can't grapple.
It's not just the wrestling you'll enjoy, either. All the soap opera theatrics of sports entertainment are here, from the outrageous storylines where you have to fulfil objectives to progress, to watching ambushes unfold during a promo interview. Managers can be ejected from a bout by the referee if he or she interferes too much, while vendettas between wrestlers add an element of the unexpected, as rivals rush into your matchups without warning.
Do you have the stamina to survive a Royal Rumble? Or the talent to succeed on the epic Road to Wrestlemania? Take your best shot at fame and glory in WWE '12.
