    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]

    So I figured I would give this game a try since the main concern I have seen from other people in the gaming community. And I have to say ISo I figured I would give this game a try since the main concern I have seen from other people in the gaming community. And I have to say I was very disappointed between the frame rate drops and every item in game being locked behind a bad loot crate system it just destroys my image of a good WWE game. When a company releases a game at full price I expect a challenge and not everything to be unlocked immediately however Loot Crates are the worst possible idea of "Safe Gambling" out there, we shouldn't have to spend any type of currency (Virtual or Physical) to unlock something that was intended to be in the product in the first place.. If anything all items should be listed in a virtual store which then can be bought with in game currency which could be earned through playing the game itself.

    Also learn to optimize your game 2k... It is one thing if I bought the game and didn't meet the System Requirements then sure I would be at fault.. However when your recommended requirements are less then what I have and the game still runs so poor that in a "One v One match" I am experiencing frame drops... come on... That itself is embarrassing. I played just under 2 hours in game maxing out my refund warrantee and I gave it a complete fair chance to impress me, which it didn't... My best advice to 2k is to listen to your fans.
