    Overall, WWE 2K19 is an evolutionary step forward for the series – but a big one. The return of the showcase mode offers up a lot to enjoy for fans of Daniel Bryan while the MyCareer mode brings things back that worked before – but tells a far better narrative than most. The debuting 2K Towers offer an ever-present challenge and are sure to make even seasoned players wince a time or two, and the revamped gameplay for things like striking and cage-related modes allows for more realistic matches than prior entries across the board.

    It is a massive improvement for the series, with plenty of great modes to choose from, along with so many great wrestlers past and present to wrestle with. It finally feels like things are looking up for WWE 2K.

    Key improvements across the board result in a significant upgrade over last year's entry. [Issue#336, p.70]

    WWE 2K19 suffers from the same problems the WWE product does as a whole: a failure to move forward. The game is great and makes some very notable improvements, especially in MyPlayer and Showcase modes, but it also refuses to move beyond the dated engine that limits actual gameplay innovation.

    WWE 2K19 is more rich than 2K18 and has a better campaign mode. Gameplay and graphics didn't change too much with all the things we didn't like about it.

    WWE 2K19 is a rebound in the right direction, but it is held back by many long-standing issues.

    WWE 2K19 struggles to meet expectations. It’s a mid-card talent with potential, but is too set in its ways to leave any lasting impact.

    Well...WWE is not a very good show of wrestling, NJPW are better, but we are not talking about wrestling shows, we are talking about aWell...WWE is not a very good show of wrestling, NJPW are better, but we are not talking about wrestling shows, we are talking about a wrestling game. So, with that in mind, i have to say this: there is not one game of wrestling better than WWE 2K19. WWE 2K19 is not a revolution, right, but is a big evolution. Big! Not like WWE 2k17 to WWE 2K18...no...the difference here is much bigger. First of all, the gameplay is much more smoother, have new mechanics that makes the difference, new animations...all of that makes the gameplay better and more fun. The game have new match types and new modes, like Towers. When i heard about Towers, i think: well, is something that we play one or two times, and then we don´t play anymore". Well, i was wrong. There is not a 2 or 3 Towers, there is much more than that and all are different, with rewards. And yes, we have a Showcase, with Daniel Bryan. Is amazing. But the best mode is without a doubt MyCareer. Yes, MyCareer sucked in other WWE games, but in this...well, is very, very good. Yes, it have voices, yes, it have a very good story, yes, is capable to surprising us. My friends, i love wrestling, i know what i am saying when i say this game is a very good one. If you love wrestling, or WWE, this game is for you. No, is not 10/10. The game have some bugs, the series need a new engine, the faces of wrestlers needs a upgrade, there is not a GM Mode again and is necessary something really new that amazing us even more. i give 10 just because is very unfair that the user review is now on 5.2/10, because the game is very good and don´t deserve that. I give the game a 8.5/10. Good job 2K. It was a big step in the right direction. Expand

    Best 2k wrestling game to date. Still missing create a finisher though. Story mode is actually really fun, and the addition of specialistBest 2k wrestling game to date. Still missing create a finisher though. Story mode is actually really fun, and the addition of specialist abilities is okay. Played story mode and won really no issues. It is kind of grindy though. Also really miss the old thq create systems with sliders and more options.som realism is lacking on the lifting etc. Never saw any of the glitches mentioned previously. But like all sports games, wwe doesn't need a yearly release.. just a roster update yearly. Unless something drastic changes won't be buying 2k20 Expand

Gameplay is alot smoother, roster is huge, and amazing. (aside from a few misses). There is alot of attention to detail in this game, and graphics improved as well.

    Happy to see the new and improved career mode. While I've only played a little it doesn't seem like it's that boring NXT match after NXT match to hopefully make it to the main roster. Every match and interaction with other superstars seem to serve a purpose. There are some cheesy moments during it but it's still good. Don't like how you really don't have any control over your characters moveset or entrance at the start. They give you a few but not enough.

    Hope to see a patch to improve the menus. The very white menu screens aren't nice to look at, and in the creation modes it's hard to tell what option you have selected.

    It's worth the pick up. If your not a hardcore WWE fan then wait until the Black Friday sales.
