Summary

WWE 13 is not the thirteenth game in THQ's well-loved wrestling series. In fact, it is the fifteenth! And as you would expect, this latest title is the biggest and the best yet. Taking a retrospective look at the Attitude Era of WWE (back when it was called WWF), the game features 35 classic characters such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and The Undertaker.

Built on the Predator Technology 2 engine, WWE 13 features more fluid animations than previous versions of the game, and buggy collisions and transitions have been fixed. The game engine now provides over 300 new moves. This is the first WWE game to feature "Spectacular Moments". This feature allows you to perform environmental moves such as ring breaks, barricade breaks, and mid-air catching.

Game sound is enhanced to enable both the crowd and commentators to be more responsive to in-game events.

Divas matches return, and have been updated to allow up to six Divas to compete simultaneously!

Previous games' Road to Wrestlemania feature is replaced with the Attitude Era Mode, which enables you to play through a season of classic Wrestling action over a two-year period. The player takes the role of several different characters as they progress through different chapters of the storyline. Video cutscenes help players to understand the stories, rivalries and feuds that defined that period of WWE.

The Creative Suite enables players to manage powerful in-game customisation. Not only can you create and customise your own wrestlers and divas, but you can also build your own arenas in which to battle. To top it off you can then edit your own story mode.

Online action has been beefed up too! Players can now test creations before downloading them into the game, and computer controlled players will fill in during online matches when not enough players are available. All of this will be backed up bey additional downloadable content packs.
