Like the real life product, Impact is mostly very solid in terms of in ring action. Also like real life however, is the fact that several major flaws and a general lack of polish keep it from competing on the same level as WWE's product. Sure, diehard wrestling fans will enjoy the fluid gameplay and the chance to play as some of their favorite TNA stars, however more casual fans will become quickly dissatisfied with the lack of variety. Assuming they can work on a substantial addition in the content department, the groundwork has been laid for a very solid game next time out. As it stands however, Impact is an enjoyable, but disappointing grappler.
+ Mostly solid in-ring gameplay
+ Great character models and animation
- Disappointing lack of content
- Some graphical issues
- Linear story mode
