In Hulk Hogan’s Main Event
, players train with wrestling superstar and icon Hulk Hogan
in the sport of professional wrestling. As an in-game mentor, Hulk Hogan helps players build their own wrestling personality and schools them in the art of showmanship to win over the crowd. The game has a cartoon-like graphical style and requires the Kinect peripheral in order to play. The game is shown from a behind-shoulder camera and various moves need to be performed by moving arms and legs to have the character on the screen reenact them. Played as a regular fighting game with health bars, players perform combos, stunts, pins, hard hits and attempt to knock opponents to the mat. The game modes include campaign, quick stunt, hardcore, tutorial, and replay.
