The audience of over-the-top, head-pounding, spine-smacking WWE Wrestling is a bit older than it used to be. Since 1985, kids have been growing up watching oiled up, musclebound men throw each other around the rings of Wrestlemania and feel a bit of a pang when they look back on the classic brawls of old. Gamers have grown up a little, too. So... maybe there's an opportunity for a game there. THQ certainly thinks so, and so we get WWE Legends of WrestleMania.

The game brings back legendary wrestlers of yore, including the likes of Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant and Brett 'The Hitman' Hart to once again get their muscles all shiny and knock seven bells out of each other. Defining moments of the 80s and 90s can be relived, recreated or rewritten in all their glory, with more than 40 larger than life legends to play as. Not only that, but Legendary Managers (remember those guys?) are back and waiting to be controlled. If you're Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan has you on the ropes, don't be surprised to see Bobby "The Brain" Heenan turn up to distract him for you.

The control system has been simplified from more recent wrestling games to make it more accessible to lapsed players, while the style factor's been cranked up to ten, complete with accurately recreated past WWE telecasts!

Players should also expect a WrestleMania Tour Mode to enable them to relive classic matches from different WrestleManias, a Create-a-Legend mode to build the legends of tomorrow, and online functionality to ensure you can share your experience.
