Can you smell what THQ is cookin’? Like it or not, WWE is one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the United States, and video games simulating the fictional shenanigans of wrestlers like Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, The Rock and John Cena have been a staple of the business for decades. So is this year’s WWE installment worth buying?

THQ’s WWE 12, which replaces the popular Smackdown vs. Raw series, debuted this week to mostly positive reviews, according to our friends at metacritic.com. But, as always, views differ among our favorite gaming sites, so we’ve compiled another STACK Roundup from our buddies to help you decide if this game belongs on your holiday wish list.
