    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 )

    I like the game, but I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to enjoy it.

    Previous games have had showcase most or something, but this has nothing. The single player just consists of the same boring grindy career mode it's been for years, and the WWE Universe mode which I assume is aimed at young children, it's just full of long loading times, and matches I don't care about.

    And don't even bother trying to get a game online, I've not managed to find one in the series in about 9 years.

    If you've got friends who are into wrestling games then i imagine it's pretty fun competitively, and the backstage segments are fun, but otherwise I wouldn't waste your time.

    Maybe next year they'll give us something to do rather than just keep working on a toybox was infinite loading times

Not just your character, they gave none of the other superstars or even the interviewer voices. The character customisation is still limited, and I've also discovered that from the 1.01 patch, all of my matches ran in slow motion.

    Using VC to buy every. single. thing is a pain, WWE Universe is the same old boring stuff.

    From a fan of Wrestling and a guy who has bought every WWE game since 2004, very disappointed in this game

    I'd like to start off by saying that if you are NOT a wrestling fan you most likely will not like this game. The matches can be fun but mostI'd like to start off by saying that if you are NOT a wrestling fan you most likely will not like this game. The matches can be fun but most of the time they are boring. The A.I is very bad and once you get used to the controls the game will feel as easy as a kids game, even on the hardest difficulty. The roster is definitely a good one for the average WWE fan. There's many superstars from the past and present to choose from. The MyCareer mode is laughably bad and is VERY repetitive to the point where you will sometimes face the same opponent over and over again without any story-lines or cut-scenes happening. Universe Mode is very much the same as the previous installments and the newly implemented promos are horrendous and riddled with countless grammatical errors. In fact most of the promos make little to no since. Here's an example, in some of the promos you will call out another wrestler and when they come out your superstar will insist that they interrupted them. Does that make sense to you? Of course not. The only redeemable part of this game is the creation suite, which is basically the same as WWE 2K16 but has improved a bit. Oh, I forgot one thing, THE BUGS. So many bugs in every single game mode, especially in the matches. Even some bugs that have been in the game for YEARS. In short, WWE 2K17 is basically the same as WWE 2K16 with some minor changes that over all don't really effect your experience. If you're a hardcore wrestling fan you'll get some enjoyment out of this game, but not much unless you're very interested in the creative aspect of wrestling games or you have someone else to play against.
