TNA Impact! This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

In the past, if you wanted to bring the bone-crushing moves of professional wrestling to your console of choice, there was just one game on the market: “Smackdown vs. Raw.” However, “TNA ­Impact!” is here to ­officially end the WWE’s lock on professional wrestling video games.

This new creation from Midway Games is available for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 platforms. Based on the hit TV show, “TNA Impact!” incorporates 25 fan favorite superstars, including Sting, Rhino, Christian Cage, Jeff Jarett, and more ­(additional characters require cheat codes). “TNA Impact!” has fighting like you’ve seen in “Smackdown vs. Raw.”

When choosing a superstar, be prepared to face brand-new challenges as each goes through his own adventure. And for fans who want to see a new face, this game has some characters you’ve never seen before.

Players take the easy-to-use controls into seven arenas and nine match types that are all “no count out,” along with “no disqualification” for 29 TNA superstars.
The game has voice commentary from TNA announcers Don West and Mike Tenay, ­realistic entrance themes, and crystal-clear fighting. Players see a three-part display on the screen: a profile to manage limb damage, an “impact” ­meter, and a stun meter.

If you like pummeling your friends in fighting games, “TNA Impact!” is for you.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw is still the better game WWE has games comming out every year while TNA only has one game. and the entrance are messed up tna has only half of an entrance while WWE shows the whole entrance. TNA is good for the fighting part but WWE is better because it has more to it and cuz they have more games out every year.

I applaud you Roland Z. for speaking the truth about this bone crushing, spine tingling Hardcore thriller. WWE and ECW needs to find another network, because TNA impact is here to stay. This game not only has multiplayer action but also a rough and rithless solo campaign. If you were a fan of the WWE games, then you need to jump on the TNA bandwagon. so Thank You Roland for writing this wonderful review on this intense game.
