    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]

    Loaded with content, WWE 2K19 still bears some of the previous games’ flaws, such as its out-dated visual and irritating micro-transactions. But there’s too much to do, too much to enjoy for all wrestling fans.

    It is not an indispensable addition to any wresting fan’s library, but it does give hope that next year we will get not just an adequate game, not even a good one, but one truly great. [13/2018, p.47]

    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.

    WWE 2K19 is the best installment in the main WWE series to date!

    WWE 2K19 is the best installment in the main WWE series to date!

    This game features an extremely large, high quality Creation Suite allowing you to create Superstars, Arenas, Championships, Money in the Bank briefcases and more better than ever. The Creation Suite works flawlessly which is important to note as the next game in the series unfortunately has many problems in it's Creation Suite.

    The Gameplay is also better than ever, having a lot of Match Types & Options/Sliders to edit, the best controls and mini-games, the smartest and most entertaining A.I we've seen to date in the series and introducing the Payback mechanic. The speed of the game isn't slow, and it's not comically fast either, it's the perfect pace (the framerate is also great, a big step up from 2K18). The Gameplay department is another area in which 2K20 failed to improve on and is filled with bugs/bad A.I, further making 2K19 the greatest to date.

    Despite the room for error in a game as complex as a Wrestling video game, this game barely had any major glitches, and most of them were ironed out and fixed during the patch period. (Once again something that can't be said for 2K20). The biggest glitch left in the game is the fact interference seemingly no longer works in Steel Cage matches.

    Other notable features present are the robust large Roster, the revamped story-driven MyCareer mode, added customization features in Universe Mode such as the new MITB system and the Match Table editor, and the return of 2K Showcase Mode featuring Daniel Bryan's greatest matches.

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.

    WWE2K19 ressemble trait pour trait à ses cinq prédécesseurs.

    Parmi les quelques ajouts anecdotiques de l'opus se cache un mode Showcase pénible à jouer et un mode carrière malheureusement très mal pensé et raté.

    Difficile, donc, de prendre du plaisir sur ce qui semble être un DLC de 2K18.
    Aucune saveur, peu de volonté de bien faire.

    Ajoutez à cela un rendu daté, laid, peu soigné, et vous obtenez un jeu que vous regretterez d'acheter.
    Alors j'imagine que ça conviendra aux moins exigeants qui souhaitent simplement contrôler les lutteurs qu'ils apprécient, et c'est peut être finalement tout ce qui compte, ici...

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. In reality the game was build for the 4k machines not 2k consoles. Graphics looks terrible. Where is real laser scanning? Arenas and crowds look blurry and unrealistic. Build a new wrestling game from scratch. Gameplay is a disaster. Wwe 12 is the overall winner here. Graphics is beaten by wwe 17. Some superstars are better. Where is realistic entrances. Even the smoke needs to improve and lighting . Scan real arenas. Commentary is better out of all. We want a real wrestling game. Build new engine. Take a one year break and build new game then you will win back your regular fans Expand
