Another instalment of the camp theatrical wrestling series

While sweaty men in Lycra shorts aren't everyone's idea of fun, WWE spin-offs have been amongst the best brawlers in console history and perfect for a bout of post-pub button bashing. Sadly, though, this latest instalment is a step backwards for the sinewy series, featuring dozens of dozy computer-controlled fighters who couldn't punch their way out of a wet paper bag.

Even worse, while there are hundreds of moves you can learn to lay the smack down, it's often impossible to pull-off ambitious grapples or pummel rivals as they writhe on the canvas, leaving you clutching thin air as your opponent lumbers in to kick your face off.
