    This year's chapter has failed to be placed as the best installment of the saga. It meets what we can expect from wrestling matches, but simply said, it complies. Too much emphasis on the show and little emphasis on gameplay and bug fixes.

    The game is flat-out broken right now and unlike Matt Hardy, I don’t think the lake of reincarnation can help it. It needs some time to be fixed up and lots of it. Fortunately, 2K through their WWEGames Twitter account maintains that patches are coming in the next few weeks – so if those come out and fix things up, grab the game then. Until then, you can safely skip 2K20 and it’s a shame because conceptually, it’s got a lot of improvements – but the final product just doesn’t live up to its potential.

    Ugly, unplayable, and filled with glitches, not even the biggest wrestling fan should pick up WWE 2K20 in its current state.

    WWE 2K20 is flat out worst entry in the series, period. The game is obviously unfinished and is full of bugs and glitches, and there is almost no way that even the die hard fans of WWE can enjoy it. WWE 2K series seems to be done for this generation, and we can only hope that the new developers will have something to offer on next generation of consoles.

    WWE 2K20 has its issues, and maybe they could have been overlooked if all the game modes worked. Sadly, that is not the case, and it feels like a broken game from the get-go.

    Patches may rescue this to some degree. For now, it’s an unfinished game which should remain unpurchased by your wallet. [Issue#170, p.86]

    WWE 2K's annual release schedule has felt superfluous for a number of years now. This has never been more apparent than with WWE 2K20, a game that's not only riddled with frequent technical issues, but one that's notably worse than its predecessor in almost every area--whether it's the dull and unenjoyable combat, the fact half the roster look like terrifying goblin facsimiles of themselves, or MyCareer's obnoxious and tedious story. This is the moment the WWE 2K series hit Rock Bottom.

    F the haters. This game is still fun. And it’s gonna be patched. Yukes left them high and dry. I feel bad for the developers at 2k. NextF the haters. This game is still fun. And it’s gonna be patched. Yukes left them high and dry. I feel bad for the developers at 2k. Next years will be better with a year under their belt and a long lead time, but this game is still fun as well! You can’t help but chuckle at some of the glitches Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It’s utter trash same copy paste game every year just worse. The character models are horrible specially the rock, the Entrances are not accurate like the rock for example looks like another person pretending to be the rock. And what was the point in putting the 5milion dollar shirt rock in without his wrestling attire we asked for Hollywood rock, 2001 rock, 2002 rock and 1990’s rock and they still couldn’t even do that let alone give the accurate entrances in. Most importantly the Gameplay is stale and move animations look bland.game still have glitches like no tomorrow. And my God are the graphics horrible looks worse than 2k19. The devs are just going lazy, 2k needs to let go of the rights to this embarrassment of a wrestling game. The wwe games hasn’t been good since the Smack down vs Raw games. WWE 14 was the last decent one though. 2k15 and up are all trash. Don’t buy them nor 2k21. I look foward to what Yukes will do now that they are free. I hate to see their next gen WWE game it’s going to be. They need to redo the whole entrance and go back to watching older wwe matches from attitude era and ruthless aggression era to take notes of the move sets animations and entrance accuracy desperately. Scrap what they have. This game is bad not worth the money and I feel sorry for anyone who bought the collectors edition. Expand
