"The WWE's SmackDown vs. Raw series has been extremely successful as a simulation series. The series thrives on precise gameplay and strategic moves in the ring, and has delighted fans over the years with its realistic portrait of sports entertainment. WWE All-Stars is not like that at all. If the SvR series is the wholesome Raisin Bran of the WWE game world, then WWE All-Stars is the Fruity Pebbles. It doesn't have any of the substance or nutritional value of the former, but it tastes awesome, and has a whole lot of color."
