When G4 needs someone to play a wrestling game, we turn to wrestling expert Mike "Suplex" D'alonzo, a longtime fan of the genre. He caught WWE '12 in a figure-four leglock and found the game to be excellent. Surprisingly, WWE '12 stands out for more than than the excellent wrasslin' gameplay. The story is impressive too, specifically, the Road to Wrestlemania mode. From the review:
"First of all, by making the Road to Wrestlemania objective based, instead of predicating it on a never-ending string of matches, WWE '12 assures that you'll remain connected to, and interested in, the storylines. And what storylines they are, indeed. Without getting too deep into spoiler territory, the Road to Wrestlemania focuses on three stories, in particular, that of The Villain, The Outsider, and The Hero, each of which is a very rich, very deep story that, quite frankly, is better than anything the actual WWE have come up with in a long, long time."
