An overall great release from 2K
26 August 2018 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

After the amazingness that was WWE 2K16, it was exciting to think what the next game would bring to the table. And while this game unfortunately doesn't add anything that new, the amount of improvements and welcome additions still make this game a worthy upgrade for the most part. The gameplay got a lot better with the inclusion of corner taunts as well as a new taunting system which eliminates the cheating aspect where wrestlers just taunt for extra buffs, as instead, you can either taunt to the crowd to boost the percentage of XP given when you do attacks, or taunt to your opponent to do more damage. This, alone, makes the game more strategic and much more fun than ever. When someone takes a hard blow in a triple threat match, they roll out so the other two can put on a show, and if they wait to recover, they get a buff. I think this a fantastic addition as it makes matches with 3 or more people more fun and realistic. My Career mode, while not necessarily that different from 2K16, is much more user friendly and feels more like you're part of a show, which is awesome. Same can be said for WWE Universe mode, as it's easier to set up shows and make it more life like. The creation suite in this game is fantastic as it adds so much more improvements, like being able to finally move the camera everywhere when making an arena, select even more materials for stage parts and clothes, and even much more creativity when you create a wrestler. It's amazing how much this game improved and I think it's one of the most well made wrestling games out there. However, this game is far from perfect. One example are the visuals, as they look damn near identical to the ones in 2K16. Another example is the complete lack of 2K showcase. This is extremely disappointing, because that takes away a lot of the replay value with this game. But, at least you can get the 2016 Hall of Fame showcase. While that's definitely awesome, there should've been a 2K showcase mode to begin with, and the fact that we have to buy it kind of sucks. Overall, despite these flaws, it can be hard to complain considering how many improvements were made in this game, as it still has a ton to love, especially for wrestling fans, like myself, and I do recommend this game to those said fans. While this game isn't quite on the same level as 2K16, it is still an overall great release from 2K.
