All Stars is an awesome title. Just as a wrestling game should be, over the top & ridiculous. It would be awesome if they made a sequel & they should do one.

Fact is though, UFC has taken over now, & there UFC games are one of the best sports series going around in videogames.
The SvR is really old & stale now, & has not evolved in gameplay since the 1st few PS2 releases.
There very much like the Tony Hawk series that just failed to evolve & got left for dead by Skate.

I think they should make a sequel or at the very least let another developer make it. I liked the arcade style of all stars and there is definite room for improvement...too bad that this generation of gamers has been funneled down to simulation type gaming...

Arcade style games are turning up in digital download format where they tend to get lost in the shuffle. Nba jam, or nfl blitz anyone??

All-Stars was the only great wrestling game this gen, and the only great WWE game in even longer.

All the game needed were more game modes - more options, variety. It felt bare-bones.

What he says is a lame excuse. Criterion hammered out Burnout games year by year on PS2 & they went well.
To say you can't build upon an arcade brawler, or wrestling game is ridiclous.....I mean, they could add in totally O.T.T. moves akin to the 1st couple of Def Jams on PS2, as well as add in Mortal Kombat finishers where necks are snapped & blood flys around.
There's more you can do with arcade type games, than simulation style wrestlers & fighters, as sims have to stick to being realistic & are governed in move sets & such for certain fighters, as well as enviroments.

I would love a heavily arcade influenced boxing game to be made. Something highly arcade stylized, but at the same time with some depth to the gameplay, as I do love me some Fight Night, but it would be nice to have a contrasting game that allows for anyone to be able to pick it up & play it.
A boxing game foremost, but also a high quality MMA arcade type game would be great.

All the game needed was trademark character taunts and it would have been over the top! And some WCW to make a wwf vs wcw battle
