The past few WWE titles have suffered from the Madden syndrome in that you could only really consider each year's version an incremental increase. All the signs leading up to Impact's release pointed to the fact that we were indeed going to see a fresh take on the wrestling genre. After some play time however, it appears as if that initial impression was incorrect. Mirroring the TNA Impact television show, this game has a lot of potential, however, ultimately fails."
