TNA Impact has a detailed character models and an impressive animation system. The moves and grapples are combined so that the player can go to an arm bar pass from suplex then to a few stomps with no need to wait for the reaction animation to be activated. In addition, there is actually a breath of crisp air that is present in the reversal system. The game will only make use of a single button to get out of moves.

There are basically 9 matches in the game and there is only a match formula that every player is very familiar about and that is the Ultimate X matches. Big red X is hanged on top of the center of the ring using two ropes which are connected to 4 posts. The opponent who will be able to up and remove the tie will win. The point is that since there are no ladders to climb to, one will have to climb through a turnbuckle which has a post behind. The player will grab the suspended rope and then try to untie the X.

There is fun with the controls and the Ultimate X but after several matches, impressions will certainly wear off. Though, it may be simple to use the move system, there are actually few moves to make. In TNA Impact you can also create your own wrestler through the Create-A-Wrestler mode. The creation process will start with the player making up his mind whether the wrestler will be a brawler or grappler. After that you will start selecting the skin color and the kind of tone that is appropriate while fixing the universal height and weight of the original wrestler.

Once you are done with your generic player, there will be a lot of computer generated wrestlers that will come your way. But the encounters will be easy since the moves will be the same. When done, you will be thrown in the singles competition. After you are done with the X Division as well as the main events, you will come to realize that you have not uncovered loads of moves. The online mode of the game is not that fun because it only supports the one in one match version and you will only be allowed to play as part of the TNA roster.

Overall, Impact is sharper and more specific in Xbox 360 than in any other consoles. Fewer issues are also present with Xbox. The basic problem of the game is that it does not feel like authentic wrestling since the opponents do not stay down longer, no wrestling belts to earn or defend and each match is no count out. In the end, TNA Impact fails to deliver, I would not recommend this game.
