- "hyper-extreme character design fits perfectly with the arcade-style over-the-top action"
- "Create A Superstar mode could definitely use a little more beefing up"
- "some fun arcade-style play and great mix of Legends and modern-day Superstars"
Giant Bomb: 4/5 http://www.giantbomb.com/wwe-all-stars/61-31641/reviews

- "feels like the developers set out to make a wrestling game that was, above all, exciting to play"
- "entertaining in a way that no wrestling game has been for a generation or more"

IGN: 7/10 http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/115/1158141p1.html
- "I enjoy the cartoony colors, crazy moves and ability to just jump in and play"
- "some annoyances keep it from being a main eventer"
- "There's no tutorial to teach you the ins and outs... goes a bit too far into hardcore expert town"
IncGamers: 6.2/10 http://ps3.incgamers.com/Reviews/1167/wwe-all-stars-review
- "falls flat thanks to a lack of depth"
- "What seems promising at first soon devolves into a monotonous chore"
- "you've experienced everything there is to experience in about an hour"
Nintendo World Report: 8/10 http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/review/25891
- "plays as a 'lite' version of THQ's flagship wrestling title, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw"
- "Each match comes with a slick 1-2 minute video explaining who these wrestlers are and why they go well together"
- "should appeal to most fans who have a nostalgic fondness for wrestling"
