The time was right for TNA to have their own game. Having secured a television contract with Spike TV, a network that previously ran WWE Raw and ECW, and having the game made by Midway, TNA was poised to take on the world. Then the game was released, and shortly after, Midway folded. TNA iMPACT! was horrible in execution, it's wrestler creator (present in only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions) was severely lacking, and the story mode had to have been written by Uwe Boll! What should have been a promising game was doomed from the start. Southpeak would rerelease this game on the PSP and DS, changing things in the game, one such change was replacing Christian Cage with Hulk Hogan, but TNA's hope for a new game contract is dashed. Just as well, as you can easily create the arenas and wrestlers in the WWE games now.
