    While the promos, commentary, and female wrestler treatment could use more fine-tuning, the rest of the game does a wonderful job of delivering an experience that’s just a bit more impressive than last year’s entry. For now, all we can keep hoping for in each new game is increased accuracy, larger rosters, better treatment of female wrestlers, and fresher color commentary.

    2K Games has once again managed to top itself by creating an incredibly in-depth wresting experience. WWE 2K17 may not be as accessible as I would have liked, but if you’ve stuck with the series this long, there are plenty of reasons why you should continue to do so.

    The dialogue choices aren’t exactly Mass-Effect-calibre, but it’s a welcome means of disrupting the match-match-match routine. And of finding new ways to insult Reigns every week, should you so desire. [Christmas 2016, p65]

    WWE 2K17 should be marking a new era for WWE video games, but unfortunately it dredges up old problems from the past just as much as it improves with new content. The massive roster, excellent control scheme save for reversals, and extensive creation suite all impressed me, but the little technical nuances just kept annoying me to no end.

    WWE 2K17 deserves the same verdict as its predecessors: it's better than before, but still far from "perfect" or even just "good".

    By acting as a simulation rather than embracing the promotion silliness, WWE 2K17 misses the mark wildly. What chance they had to make MyCareer a marquee game mode and a game changer was wasted by half-baked ideas.

    WWE 2K17 is a poor simulation of the WWE product, often because it seems ashamed of pro wrestling.

    Gameplay
    A base do ano passado esta lá , mas tudo o que me irritava foi corrigido , como o sistema de submissão em que perdia muitas vezes a conta do mesmo , depois temos pequenos acréscimos , como novos ângulos de camara , a minha alteração favorita foi no botão de taunt (insulto) , em que foi alterado , temos as provocações mas outras acções que mexem com a acção , e tudo isso pode ajudar ou piorar a nossa capacidade física , uma boa utilização pode nos dar uma vantagem num combate em que estejamos por baixo.

    Modos de jogo
    Para ser sincero ainda não joguei o my career (sinto me mais um manager lol) mas já detonei umas horas no universe mode, acho que o trabalho feito pela 2k tem que ser elogiado, embora ainda me esteja habituar aos menus e as novidades , mas a verdade é que conseguimos reproduzir um show como na tv , desde abertura , as novelas e aos combates e tudo melhora ainda mais com o seguinte ponto que irei falar ...

    Editor de jogo
    Vou ser muito sincero neste ponto, sempre achei que só se conseguia fazer algo de jeito no editor quem descarregava as imagens e faces etc (achava tudo demasiado genérico), tanto que ia lá brincar um pouco e tudo o resto que precisava ia a comunidade descarregar Caws , tudo isto para dizer que estou viciado no editor do 2k17, são tantas mas tantas opções , conseguimos criar lutadores incríveis e únicos , por exemplo criei ao pormenor The Prince Alexander II , um príncipe egípcio, depois de criado consegui em dois tempos colocar o moveset do undertaker e a sua entrada (deu tempo tambem de colocar os festejos , sim agora podemos alterar como se festeja um titulo) e tinha o meu novo personagem heel , que terá ainda 2 comparsas , tudo isto porque o editor me fez querer ressuscitar a wcw com novos e únicos lutadores :-) , coisa que nas entregas anteriores me limitava a usar o roster e alguns atletas que não estavam no jogo . Já agora referir que os loadings entre criações estão bastante rapidos.

    Community creations
    Só para referir que o menu de pesquisa esta muito mais intuitivo , mas principalmente que já não bloqueia em certos downloads e que esta muito muito rápido , , o ano passado já era difícil entrar na community creations quanto mais fazer downloads, eram demorados os menus e muitas vezes os downloads ficavam parados , foi tudo melhorado a 1000%.

    Considerações gerais

    E pronto basicamente , se são fans de wrestling de verdade (e não só de wwe) comprem o jogo , não liguem as criticas de quem vem aqui escrever, leio certas coisas que fico estupefacto como as pessoas são mentirosas e querem prejudicar a reputação dos jogos sem os terem .
    Já agora uma nota final de que todo o jogo esta bastante mais rapido, o ano passado quando usavamos algo editado no combate acontecia do loading pré combate demorava muito muito tempo, fiz questão de fazer um combate com dois caws e uma arena criada e o tempo de loading foi algo perto ao que tínhamos o ano passado em loadings com cenas base do jogo , e se for só um caw não se sente diferença nenhuma, acredito que a ideia da 2k seja tornar futuramente o jogo cada vez mais editavel , termos este ano os lutadores por exemplo sem imagem real , mas sim a imagem do seu avatar já diz muito do caminho a seguir , para mim ficou 5 estrelas , já não existe aquela diferença entre caws e roster base .

    Nota 98/100 (não dou 100 porque a 2k ainda não desponibilizou o Shinsuke Nakamura para download lool )

    WWE 2k17
    here Comes the Disappointment
    WWE 2k17 is the first wwe game I’ve played in this gaming generation…
    As a former wrestling fan, there were 2 things that mattered most to me in wrestling games...
    Creative modes and story modes…
    Unfortunately here, both of these things are massively shallow…
    The greatest improvement here is that the face sculpting…the greatest tool I’ve seen in a create your own character mode in a game period… it allows so much freedom, and feels more like you’re molding clay rather than just your typical sliders…
    The rest however.. The attire options... the move sets… the create entrance modes… all of these things have so little options…
    The move sets are so uninspired that every wrestler you create will feel pretty identical… the same with entrances as they went back to the ps2 era with you not being able to add custom music…
    Leaving creation… one of the most important things in a wrestling game, ultimately feeling generic…
    Though I do appreciate being able to mix and match the music available and time them to my characters entrance…
    The story mode offered here is my career mode…
    And it’s the laziest feeling single player experience of any wrestling game in memory…
    Your character starts out in nxt with thankfully Albert being voice acted… and eventually meeting up with Paul heyman as you climb the ladder to a championship and he’s voice acted as well…
    But I’m not joking when I saw WWF smackdown 2 had more voice acted sections than this game does, as beyond the first 10 minutes of the game and that 1 time you meet Paul heyman, you get to read dialog while an npc awkwardly moves their mouth…
    this is understandable for a created superstar… but as for interviewers and other superstars you start rivalries with its unacceptable…
    This is another case of procedural generation garbage… 2k didn’t want to put in the effort of making cutcenes or hiring someone to write their own story line so they give a mode where you create someone and it’s up to you to cut promos and make your own rivalries.. And occasionally trigger a cut scene once every 5 hours
    The promos here are a great idea, but the crowd feels so dead that it’s hard to read the type of crowd in your current city, as you’re told early on each crowd is different and reacts to different things...
    It would be nice to be booed by them, or cheered so you can dish out an awesome promo…
    But none of this happens leaving you to have to guess your way through an always awkward 2 minute promo calling someone out or promoting yourself…
    I of course would call out people ranked higher than me.. yet after defeating these characters over and over, my rank for a title would seemingly only rise randomly and wouldn’t go off of the fact that I kept rising to the occasion against the champion and number one contender…
    Leaving the promos to ultimately feel like a waste of time…like they didn’t matter at all…
    And honestly probably don’t
    There’s nothing here…
    Write this down 2k… WWE is so great because of its story telling…
    How can you leave the best part of this property out of your game?
    We want story… not 1000 matches… I had to make stories up in my mind to keep myself pushing through the calendar… a calendar that made me fight at least twice every single week of course to cheaply prolong everything and felt like a drag..
    Even when the authority disapproved of my because I wouldn’t follow their orders in a match…
    This should trigger me being put on fewer and fewer cards to maybe teach me a lesson…
    but that would take too much effort to make your systems actually mean anything.. So never mind…
    By the way, you also can’t use you’re my career character in other modes...
    so you’re inconvenienced in recreating them again if you want to use them in exhibition mode…
    Gameplay wise though…
    Everything feels great...
    Switching to your target is just a click from the analog stick away and it’s the most responsive feeling targeting system in a fighting game, though it isn’t perfect as occasionally my character would still swing at the air... not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction…
    Reversing feels great...
    The action however feels very slow…
    I find too often that I’d be attacking my opponent on the ground where in past games the action felt much more fast passed and standing…
    wwe 2k17 shines in targeting and hit detection in ways past games didn’t…
    As well as its freedom in creation…
    But the overall shallowness of this game…
    Lack of creation options... lack of variety in character style, and lack of story makes this title highly skippable…
    Other than an updated roster, and added in crowd and backstage fighting, this title offers nothing exciting for wwe fans…
    I give wwe 2k17
    a 6.5/10

In that regard, I probably shouldn't have been soAs my first foray into the world of WWE games post THQ, I really didn't know what to expect. In that regard, I probably shouldn't have been so disappointed about what I actually played. This isn't to say that WWE2K17 is the worst game but I have a feeling that it's at the point where it really doesn't know what kind of game it wants to be. What do I mean by this? Does it want to be an engaging game or does it want to be a pick up game?

    The pick up aspect is there and plain for everyone to see. Its essentially the first thing you'll see once you hit the main menu screen. A bunch of match options and then you're off - playing whatever you fancy with whomever. Don't like Enzo and want to give him a bit of a beating with the Beast Incarnate? Go for it. For short spanned interactions, however they may vary, this game is probably fine for. The characters all look decent, the entrances are authentic and you've got the mix of signature moves and big finishers as you jobber squash your way through time.

    As a fan of the product, my primary interest is career mode. It's the game mode where I spent the vast majority of my time playing and its also where virtually all of my disappointment emanates.

    Career mode, from what I experienced, is quite frankly the most boring attempt at a career mode that I have ever experienced in a pro wrestling game. It is boring and it plays out ridiculously badly to the point where I actually wish I never paid money for this title. Now, it wouldn't be fair to have an opinion like this unless I could point to specific examples. So, without any further ado...

    The Authority! They will give you tasks that you can choose to complete or ignore. Completing them will earn you VC (doing them consecutively applies a small multiplier) and favour which can sometimes aid you with your matches. For example, I did a promo where the Authority came out and changed one of my matches to a handicap match in my favour. I recently hit maximum appeal with the Authority so I should be their golden boy, right? No, nothing. Just kind of flat. Beyond that, some of the tasks are downright ridiculous and unless you have specific things (that a google search turned up), you just won't complete them. Winning by DQ is just a horrific pain.

    The Promos! During the shows when you're not in a 'Rivalry', you'll be able to pick a slot where you can do the almighty promo and work that stick. You can self-promote, attempt to call out a superstar, form a tag team or turn. Before long and by before long I mean the next time you choose 'self promote', you'll see exactly the same options that you saw before. This is scathing but the dialogue choices are worse than what you'd find in Mass Effect - rarely matching what you think they would for the alignment that you choose to be. Attempting to call out a superstar can sometimes, if your relationship is bad enough, lead to a 'Rivalry' - an concept that seemed interesting but just wasn't really that well done which leads to...

    Rivalries! Boom, the name given to 'feuds' between yourself and specific superstars of the WWE. The goal is to score more points than your opponent during the course of the 'rivalry'. How do you score or lose points? Its all a bit confusing and often gets messy when you find yourself locked in matches with your rival. For those matches, you'll also often get the opportunity to perform a 'Run in' on their entrance. Perform the run-in and you'll score points. Decline to do so and you'll not only SKIP your match but lose points. During a rivalry with John Cena, the Authority wanted me to get a 4* match. I didn't 'Run In' because I wanted the VC bonus - match was skipped and I lost rivalry points. Still completed the Authority task though! In another bout where I had to win with Green body health, my rival, Cena was at ringside and during the bout a scene triggered where I was attacked and left with orange condition.

    When you enter a rivalry, you are not able to do any promos outside of the odd call-out that your rival will do. The 'call out' is just a game of pick the least crap option and hope you get more meter to take the points.

    Match Ratings! Probably the most flawed but understandably flawed aspects of career mode. There isn't much to say beyond - In no way, shape or form, should it be possible for me to squash my way to a 5*(Greatest of All-Time) rating. In no way.

    My only other major gripe with Career mode is that you'll often have to play a match on every single show that you're eligible for which just becomes a grind. When it comes to a PPV week, you'll be having at least three matches sometimes four if you get double booked with one title match and one rival match.

    For all of their attempt to give the WWE fan a more realistic experience, they unfortunately end up giving me something that is just pretty drab.
