      After showing my disappointment for WWE 2K14, I figured it would be a good idea to show why I feel WWE ‘13 is the better game of the two. It was the title that got me back into playing wrestling video games, with the exception of the amazing Fire Pro Wrestling Returns. Everything about WWE ‘13 struck me as fun and engaging, feelings I didn’t get from playing 2K14. Allow me to go into greater detail.

      Before THQ folded as a video game publisher, they released Yuke’s WWE ‘13. The game had a decent sized roster with the likes of Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, and John Cena. But, what really sold me on the game was the inclusion of Attitude Era

      talent like all three faces of Mick Foley (Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack), Road Dogg, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Godfather, and The Legion of Doom.

      The match options for the game are nearly endless. You have singles and tag team. There are also ladder, table, 6-man, and battle royal. It wouldn’t be right not to include classic gimmick matches like The Royal Rumble, Hell in a Cell, and Elimination Chamber. One match type that became a favorite of mine was Championship Scramble.

      The Attitude Era mode allows fans to relive classic moments of the late 1990’s. The mode has half a dozen sections dedicated to select superstars like Mankind, De-Generation X, The Rock, and the duo of Kane and the Undertaker. This section also features commentary by Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross.

      The Universe Mode essentially puts the player in the role of the booker, the person who sets up the matches. You can play the matches or let the game’s AI play for you. You can make your own story lines and set title matches. If you feel like you can do better than WWE Creative, then this is your chance.

      Unlike other title, especially Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, there is a lot of content to unlock in this game. Costumes, wrestlers, and arenas are unlocked by playing The Attitude Era mode. The modestly priced downloadable content is a nice touch and featuring solid talent. Val Venis, AJ Lee, Chainsaw Charlie, Brian Pillman, Gangrel, and Damien Sandow ...

      are some of the wrestlers you can purchase.

      The creation options is unbelievable in this game. There is so much to do. You can create belts, arenas, wrestlers, entrances, and so much more. You can import music tracks into your hard drive and use it for entrance themes. There is also the option to download creations from the game’s online community and there are a lot of good creations to sift through from other users.

      Since I was rusty with wrestling games, it took a while for me to understand the control scheme. After a few hours, I got the hang of them pretty quickly. Soon, I got the grapple and reversals down easy. Its not as challenging as the controls for Fire Pro

      Wrestling Returns, but there is a noticeable learning curve.

      If there were any flaws, it was limited to some freeze spots and the game stalled while loading. This became a problem during multiplayer sessions. But, they were far and few between that they became a minor inconvenience. These don’t break the game nor do they sway my interest in playing it.

      WWE ‘13 is a great wrestling game that overshadows other entries in the series, not since 2002’s Here Comes the Pain. Whether you’re a new fan of wrestling or have been watching for a long time, this game deserves a spot in your collection. The game is very easy to find at any retailer and for a nice, low price in the neighborhood of $25.
