Mar 14, 2022While still partly a money-making machine for its MyFaction multiplayer, WWE 2K22 is back in style with a beautiful game that's clunky at times but shines with a huge amount of personality. The co-op with friends is incredibly fun and the customization within the game itself blows our imaginations to unimaginable levels. Welcome to your childhood.
Mar 28, 2022We can't help but admit that 2K managed to create perhaps the most complete title of the series. Despite any hiccups, WWE 2K22 entertains enough to be recommended to people with little involvement with the genre or even an interest in sports martial arts.
Mar 10, 2022WWE 2K22 is a beacon on the road: the sports simulation of wrestling returns with that essence that allows us big kids to go out and play again, with flaws to correct, but with a goal that can return the illusion to the fans of the saga.
Mar 10, 2022The fighting alone is much improved and enjoyable to work with, and the graphics look quite nice, even though some flourishes are missing and the PC version isn't up to expectations. The modes are pretty hit-and-miss, and the legacy issues and hilariously outdated roster show that this isn't quite the comeback many people were hoping for. There's enough fun to be had here, despite the issues to warrant a look for those craving a "good enough" wrestling game, especially from those who were heavily burned by WWE 2K20.
Apr 11, 2022WWE 2K22 is many things, but one thing most of us can probably agree on is that it is not, as retired WWE wrestler Bret Hart would say: "The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be". While WWE 2K22 might have made considerable strides forward in the area of general stability, compared with its infamously terrible launch, it’s doubtful that the studio will bother continuing to support it for much longer. One doesn’t have to be The Rock to know that 2K is probably already cooking up a new annual instalment. Here's hoping that in-between now and then, the publisher learns from both the successes and failures of WWE 2K22 and use that as a guide to give players a true WWE experience worthy of the license.
Mar 11, 2022WWE 2K22 is a lot of fun because the gameplay is faster, better and more fluent than in its predecessors. On the other hand it still has some technical flaws and some of the game modes – especially the extremely boring MyRise story mode – are rather disappointing.
Mar 16, 2022WWE 2K22 is the definition of a mixed bag. There are clearly areas where the team at Visual Concepts made positive progress with the franchise, particularly in wrestler AI and animations. Many of the marquee talents look fantastic and there is a lot to do within the game. Sadly, most of the modes are half-baked and the series is still suffering from bugs or problems it has carried for far too long. With WWE 2K22 seemingly refusing to make use of the power afforded to it by the new consoles or PCs, what do the fans who buy the game every year have to look forward to? Visual Concepts achieved its goal of surpassing WWE 2K20. The problem is that being better than awful isn’t gonna cut the mustard any longer.

Mar 25, 2022Rating the game negative for the reasons below:
- How can a game in 2022 not have borderless full screen as an option? - CharactersRating the game negative for the reasons below:
- How can a game in 2022 not have borderless full screen as an option?
- Characters locked behind insane amounts of playtime, a paywall or DLCs which come out months later is just a no-go to me. Not to speak of the price for every edition after the standard one. You can't even buy the nWo pack as a standalone pack (which should be included in the season pass as well as the pre-order bonus too)
- Enemy AI / any player can just lock you in moves/attacks loop since you can't reversal every attack like it used to in older games.
- My faction is just like ultimate team in FIFA games.... If you could just simply have the objective to win it would be somewhat fun, but I ain't going to bother with dumb requirements.
Getting forced fighting legendary AI which reversals 99% of the time and camps you in move/attack loops whenever they get the chance to do so just to get 3 medals.. Even the 1 star AI tryhards like nobodies business. 126 medals? 500 wins? Shady overpriced rigged packs?
WTF? Where are cool objectives as I remember from smackdown vs raw 2007? It definitely should replace the dumb idea of the current requirement system of the games.
Just straight up win matches, no stupid requirements like “win but atleast have 2million match rating" – whoever came up with this – please quit your job.
I'm out this bish. Going to scratch this mode from my game entirely. Same with boring ass MyGM
- What's the point of MyGM, Universe and MyRise which basically are all 3 the same.
The only option is "MyRise" since it's one actual “story mode”.
Universe and MyGM make no sense to me if they don't hold any reward (unlockable). Due to my season pass I have all purchasable goods unlocked, so what's the point in playing these then?
- Moves very often don't connect, you jump past / above or next to enemies. Even with regular standing/ground moves. Haven't played any WWE game that was this bad to just not make the game look dumb. In THQ games it just worked..
- Getting body damage from missing any move should be possible to turn off
- Stamina system in general is just garbage. I turned it always off in SvR games (in most of them it was off by default)
- Takes ages to get up if you miss a simple running skill – not as fluent as I'm used to WWE games
- Controls are more complicated than it should be. Who needs blocking? Are we in tekken?
Controls from SvR 2011 were the best to me.
Game seems not too bad compared to all WWE games 2k released before. Yet, it successfully earned itself a mega negative review with the points above. I expected them to learn in over 1 decade to create a proper game and not still look dumb next to old THQ WWE games.
THQ was the real deal on wrestling games.
Smackdown vs RAW 2005-2011 were all more or less good. 2k12 and after were jack crap.… Expand
Mar 13, 2022I'm not enjoying it that much.
Reversals don't work in the vast majority of cases (Y for short) and there is no option to set a limit.I'm not enjoying it that much.
Reversals don't work in the vast majority of cases (Y for short) and there is no option to set a limit.
Rolling and blocking moves, to me, is a big no.
There is no more fatigue, health recharges (I can't find the reason).
When you go to do the special/final moves after the third time, maybe, work.
Combos are made easier(like they were hard in the old games) but now they are more awkward.
Stiff gameplay and really uncomfortable and 'ugly'.
GM mode is a mockery, pre-set and without the possibility of real decisions.
Online not found lol.… Expand
Mar 18, 2022While the game was fun, there's bugs that can crash the game or worse, make 2K20 like child's play. Can't download too many created superstarsWhile the game was fun, there's bugs that can crash the game or worse, make 2K20 like child's play. Can't download too many created superstars or you'll softlock, or crash the game when using them, movement is broken like 2K20, and control scheme couldn't switch to Playstation controls, if you use a Playstation controller...yes, I tried switching to DS4 to no avail. I have to rely that my PS4 controller is an XBox controller. I get they took two years to try and freshen this up, but it lost my interest when I see bugs that echo 2K20 or worse. 2K19 was the peak 2K game they had before Yuke's left, and it just went downhill from there. Once again, 2K made an incomplete game...I hope WWE ends the contract and finds a better developer, cause this 2K22 isn't a step forward if VC makes several steps back.… Expand
Jul 23, 20222K is the worst company ever!!! This game you can't play because of servers going down. So we have to wait over a month for more people after2K is the worst company ever!!! This game you can't play because of servers going down. So we have to wait over a month for more people after 2 years. Each game has had people like Bruno Sammartino, Ricky Steamboat, Bam Bam Bigelow, Greg Valentine, Lex Luger and more. Than we are missing others like Paige, The Bellas, Zelina Vega, Kurt Angle, Lita, Brutus Beefcake, Sycho Sid, Dusty Rhodes, Molly Holly, Reggie. This was supposed to be the biggest roster and it isn't and definitely doesn't hit different at all. How can you have a rey mysterio showcase and not have the best matches with legends in it. Legends made WWE and for them not being in is ridiculous since 2K has had 2 years to do it. I know for sure they won't be happy with this! Than we need a new moves pack because hardly no new moves are in the game after 2 years!… Expand
