      Best wrestling game yet...BY FAR

      Posted
      Jacob11291

      WWE 2K18 is by far the best wrestling game on the market at this time. It has amazing graphics with some character models that will truly astonish you. They have greatly improved the backstage area allowing for a true brawl anywhere. The career mode is amazing, very immersive. The create-a-suite for this years game is immense with many options that have never been seen before such as removing teeth, moveable scars, wrap around tattoos and much much more. The universe mode has been improved as well and makes it much less repetative. There are a few things that 2K will need to work on such as; the new carry system, limited entrance music in create-an-entrance, certain character models, and especially COMMENTARY. The new carry system is an awesome addition which allows you to pull off new moves that have never been seen before in WWE games . However the controls while in the carry system are a bit touchy and make for a difficult time to line up your moves. There are very few new entrance themes for the create-an-entrance. The commentary is TERRIBLE, constantly using the wrong name, the incoharent babble, and the fact that what they are talking about has NOTHING to do with the match. It doesn't really effect the match. however it is extremely annoying that games such as NBA or UFC can have such amazing commentary and WWE is still so far behind.

      This game is so much better than WWE 2k17. They've added a ton of reversals, has a huge roster size, improved player models, the caws look closer to the in game characters, extended the backstage brawling by 3x, and have added 4 on 4 & create a match. Now don't get me wrong.. this still isn't on "Smackdown Here Comes the Pain" level when it comes to fluidity. I dont ever think there will be another game like Here Comes the Pain. That was 1 of a kind. However, this game is at least 2 levels above the previous year. Because they have added more reversals, it makes the game much smoother. Cruiserweights feel like cruiserweights. People like Neville or Finn Balor or Johnny Gargano actually feel faster and have cruiserweight like reversals. The new reversals really make some great sequences in the game. Now, dont get me wrong it is the same gameplay engine as 2k17. That's the one thing I wish they'd completely overdue. I'd like the franchise to step away from "trying to make the most realistic wrestling game possible"; and start trying to make the funnest wrestling game possible. I wish they'd go back to that "smackdown here comes the pain arcade style". But for now, this game is great.

      Huge Roster/Great graphics, but at a price

      I seem to be in the minority here, but I actually preferred 2K17 in many ways to 2k18. I was so excited for Kurt Angle/Hardy Boyz/etc to be in this one though, so I made sure to get the deluxe edition. The match rating system has been tweaked a little, making it more difficult to reach a high star rating for a match, but I did get used to it after a week or 2 of playing. I do like the addition of more wrestlers as well as new game mode (8 person matches), but on the PS4 the framerate dips HORIBLY for 6-man and up matches. Have yet to test on a PS4 pro. This game also introduced loot boxes for unlockable career mode stuff, which is frustrating given the element of chance to get things you want when you should be able to just get them. They also made it super difficult to actually level up to a decent Superstar rating in MyCareer. I'm currently at about 65 rating or so while in NXT, whereas in 2K17 I was already about a 77 when I had hit the main roster. I still recommend the game, as I'm a fan of the WWE2K games, but don't expect a massive overhaul.

      WWE games are what they are... Don't get me wrong, I love classic WWE but I never asked to play as The Bushwhackers... I may be being a little hypocritical because I love the inclusion of RVD and Batista but at least they are closer to performing let alone the prime of their career. I think there has been a general lack of improvement in areas of the game that I use frequently, namely WWE Universe mode... I want to see real changes or at least bring back GM Mode... I cannot believe that if you take graphics away this game is worse in practically every category as games that release in the early to mid 2000's along with games for the N64 that are almost as old as The Bushwhackers... I am not mad at the game as much as I am disappointed... This game could be great but they continue to leave it mediocre to ok... I hope to see real improvement in 2k19, if Universe mode remains untouched without the addition of GM Mode or something similar the I will be avoiding the next copy.

      This game and series has the potential to be GREAT, although currently it’s just a step above average. I think 2K sports is in such a big hurry to put this franchise out every year that they cut corners. Those are VERY apparent in this edition of the franchise. The graphics are a step above 2K17 however there are times when the characters on the screen develop a “Stretch Armstrong” characteristic rendering the rest of the match obsolete. The commentary is a step above however Saxton and Cole pretty much repeat the same phrases no matter who is in the actual match. Load times are definitely longer than previous editions. Hopefully the glitches are addressed in future patches which have been rather frequent since the release. I won’t hold my breath though. Overall it’s a time killer for a true WWE fan and is what it is. I don’t HATE it, just can’t be an impatient person or HARDCORE complainer with this one. You’ll go insane.

      Every year I purchase the wwe title because a group of friends and I create custom wrestlers and just pour over the smallest details.. That's where this game is great. The creation suite builds strongly upon last year's release. While still missing some options, it still manages to have a little of something for everyone. Gameplay remains mostly unchanged, and issues with glitches / collision / targeting and AI still occur semi frequently, but less often overall. The single player mode is the issue. Like the gameplay, it too remains mostly the same beast (But with some really big bug/crash issues to be addressed with future patches.. hopefully) which is hardly a positive. As a hardcore fan of the games because of the people I play with, I don't regret the purchase at all. If you lack the company and are looking for a single player experience, I'd recommend a rental first.

      I have taken a step back from this game series after the last several attempts left me with the sense that something was missing. I remember back in the 1990's and early 2000's on basing my console purchases on the wrestling video games that were coming out. Though as I have aged I have found these recent games to be lacking in the general fun aspect. The built towards simulation, for better or worse, has changed the mechanics to be an easy pick up and play affair to having to execute everything specifically with specific presses. I feel the genuine fun aspect has taken a backseat. Even though I do not completely dislike the game as there is still some fun to be had, but something is just missing to fully pull me into experience and make it my go to game to play.

      Not a great game, but the foundation is solid.

      There's bugs, there's glitches, some are infuriating, others amusing. A lackluster season mode, and career mode that involves loot boxes. Even with all of those negatives, this is the best wrestling has ever been in terms of match presentation and gameplay. The basic in-ring action is solid and looks amazing with all of the transitional animations and reversals. It has a solid foundation, 2K just needs to figure out a way to improve all other aspects of the game despite being restricted to a yearly release model forced upon them by the WWE as there's potentially something great here and once was with this series. Hopefully things turn around for next year's edition.
