Finally picked WWE 12 up today, after having an argument with the shop assistant because I'm under 21. The game has a 12 rating. Wtf.
Anyway, I've played a couple of matches and I'm finding the new controls really difficult to get used to. I lost to Santino when I was Kane... I'm not sure how I feel about the game in general so far, how does it compare to the previous ones? And is it easy to get used to?
What you don't want to do is get into the mentality that 'the game sucks' just because you can't get used to the controls, I acted that way at first, but as I put more and more time into the game I got used to them.
The game is great in my opinion, better than SVR 2011, added some new additions, but not without it's flaws, for example the online servers being really crap and Road To WrestleMania (which I haven't even touched, but heard it was awful).
Universe mode, is the biggest selling point to the majority who play it, and it's really addicting and adds a lot of lifespan to the game. I got the game on release date and guess what? I'm still playing it, daily, to this day.
Some people claim that Universe mode is boring and too repetitive, but I say it's for the hardcore WWE fan - and I don't know if you're that, but if you are you should enjoy this game.
