THQ has reached a crossroads with its premiere pro-wrestling franchise. After last year's fetid effort, WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2011, the producers behind the series famously proclaimed that this was the year everything changed. From the name on down, everything was to be overhauled. Finally, we were told, this would be the year that the gameplay morphed into something other than another meaningless retooling of the same engine we've been enduring since the middle years of the PlayStation 2 era. Finally, wrestling games were going to cease to suck.
