WWE SuperCard review
Finding a collectible card game that you can actually enjoy without feeling too much pressure is quite the rarity. WWE SuperCard introduces all your favorite WWE superstars (both past and present) in the form of battle cards which you can collect without too much pressure, making this an excellent card game for passing the time.
The basis of the game depends on which game mode you are playing. Basically, you have to collect cards of varying stats and match them against your opponents. The most famous of these modes is the Wild mode, which provides exhibition matches in the WWE NXT arena. Here you build decks with four Superstar cards, two Diva cards, and an additional two support cards. The Superstar and Diva cards each have stats tracking of Charisma, Power, Speed, and Toughness. Each round favors a certain stat more than others, therefore you have to be strategic about which card you deploy in certain rounds. You can use your support cards as boosters depending on what purpose you modify them for.
The matches simulate real WWE matches, except, well, cards are fighting each other here in a seemingly animated fashion.
If you were expecting any form of real WWE combat here, you’re in for a disappointment. SuperCard has great art, and the cards are all tastefully designed. The game has vibrant color, and the backdrops are well designed in the bold fashion of both RAW and Smackdown Live. The in-ring action is the closest thing to an actual WWE event that you’ll get, as your cards simulate fighting in short bursts, with an adrenaline-laced soundtrack in the background for effect.
Most of the game is played through interacting with on-screen prompts. You can tap on your cards to draw them and then customize them as you see fit. Since there is no actual fighting, you don’t have to master any button mashups. The menus are well done, and you can move through them easily and intuitively with a little experience. Overall the controls are effective for a digital tabletop game.
