    You can clearly tell the age of this wrestling giant, but real WWE fans will certainly have fun.

    Under the better-than-ever graphics and great-as-ever core wrestling gameplay, WWE 2K18 is a largely disappointing iteration. It wastes too much of its ambition on the poorly written and dull MyCareer RPG mode, leaving its other promising modes to languish for another year. What few enhancements we get to the carry mechanics and eight-person matches are welcome, but not as much of a year-over-year refresh as would be needed to keep the excitement level as high as it’s been in past years.

    So the sport hasn’t changed apart from an increased roster, but if you have a previous installment of the series, you may as well stick to it, unless having the latest crop of pro wrestling stars is of utmost importance to you. But, if you’re looking to get into some wrestling for the PC, then the monopoly 2K Sports holds on licensed wrestling games means that even though WWE 2K18 has a heap of issues, it is unfortunately still the best available.

    WWE 2K18's in-ring combat is fundamentally flawed, and will be as divisive as it often is. Yet there's no denying the inherent joy derived from performing your favorite Superstar's signature moves.

    WWE 2K18’s price gives you the right to expect a triple AAA product, but instead you get a shabby game that looks like it was thrown together hastily and as cheaply as possible. [13/2017, p.61]

    The game would be great if it was actually playable. Right now there are literally bugs and crashes everywhere. I had 2 Universe modes goingThe game would be great if it was actually playable. Right now there are literally bugs and crashes everywhere. I had 2 Universe modes going well til the game crashed and locked me out of both. I'm on my 3rd now solely due to the crashes. 2K should be ashamed of themselves for letting a game ship in this state. I imagine it'll need a couple of patches to get everything fixed. I may raise my rating later but as this game is right now, I'll give it a 5 out of 10. Expand

    This game is another wwe2k failure of a game ,feels like you play a cheap rushed pasionless game with lack of everything and bad choices,justThis game is another wwe2k failure of a game ,feels like you play a cheap rushed pasionless game with lack of everything and bad choices,just a moneygrab 2k does every year,gaming community is already tired and sickened of greedy bastards that use and treats gaming and gamers like an easy money grab,you people are no real game developers but a sad joke for real gaming developers and real gamers,this game is not even worth 1$ not to mention 60,a failure and I wont be surprised if every wwe 2k from now on will be a mediocre failute that will never score over 80 overall,over 90 just makes me laugh thinking about it.

    DO NOT BUY -LOOT BOXIFICATION OF PREVIOUSLY BASELINE CONTENT-

    If you buy these games for the single player RPG mode, you will be extremely angry. You can no longer import CAWs into career mode. You must create your character for that mode with a wizard that offers limited options. Even with the Accelerator, everything in that mode is still gated behind a loot box mechanic. It's pretty clear that the microtransactions were removed last second after the blowback against NBA 2k18. Until they fix this and allow CAWs to be imported into career, avoid this game.

    On the actual game side, it looks a little better, the roster is large, gameplay is improved and the move list goes on for miles. There is a game worth owning under this nonsense, but until they fix this, unless you are getting it for universe mode or to do exhibitions, it's basically a broken game when compared to previous years.
