WWE '12 is a game that theoretically should have been awesome. Between throwing someone through a table or a totally sweet cage match, this should be a great party/fighting game. Unfortunately, the controls keep amateurs out of the ring and given the way WWE '12 is designed, you will be explaining what every button does each time you play with someone new.
It is worth mentioning that the game is less confusing then past titles from this generation, with the exception of WWE All Stars. It does have a fair share of good qualities. The presentation in WWE '12 is really strong and I enjoyed how each match feels like you're watching it on TV.
Here is the game's starting roster if you're curious.
