    WWE 2K22 will surprise you with its speed, quality, strong presentation and more arcade gameplay.The game offers a lot of content, although it is still a long way from perfection.

    WWE 2K22 was worth the wait. Form a visual standpoint, the franchise has taken an enormous leap, it looks nothing like it did before. The realism is really there, and it manages to give you the feeling that it is an actual WWE show. Even if the new game modes still need some work, the franchise is moving in the right direction. Also, it does not matter whether you are a WWE fan or not; this game will give you tons of hours with a lot of fun.

    WWE 2K22 looks good, feels good, and most importantly, it manages to create a solid foundation for the franchise. After being absent for one year, Visual Concepts has managed to deliver one of the best entries in the wrestling franchise, although it also feels like a product that has much more to fulfill.

    After the last few installments, WWE 2K22 succeeds in bringing the zest back into this long-running franchise. Each match is intense and exciting, and I couldn’t stop myself from exploring different play styles and re-enacting some of my favorite encounters. Even if the whole WWE circus only exists to present a cheap power fantasy, games like this one triumph in highlighting the best side of the affair.

    WWE 2K22 isn’t a good fighting game, despite the multiplayer being a bit of knock-around fun. The woolly controls, messy inputs, and numerous glitches lead to an underwhelming video game experience, while the lacklustre Showcase and MyRise game modes don't manage to replicate the bombast of professional wrestling, WWE 2K22 isn’t a particularly good wrestling game either. It’s a decent laugh in multiplayer, but with the notably hefty price tag I would expect a lot more than that.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The Progress in development of WWE 2k Games is absolutely minimal. The only real Changes are the Controls, like in every WWE 2k Game, they change the Controly every Year because they can say somethingy new. But the Controls of this Year are the biggest Problems, you are not able to Counter certain Moves, which means Online Matches are complete cancer. They just spam the same few Moves until you are stuned and you cant do anything about that. Its an instant Loss if this happens, which we know some cool Buddys who think their awesome gonna abuse those Technics.

    Only positive Thing at the End is, that the game has less Bugs. It has some but not as many as 2k20 had.

    same game new slogan not a fan of the new camera angle it was nothing wrong with what it was before and speaking of unnecessary changes to thesame game new slogan not a fan of the new camera angle it was nothing wrong with what it was before and speaking of unnecessary changes to the controls are just as awful and learning crave as 2k20 if it ain't broke don't fix it well in 2k's case if its broke then let's recolor and reskin. this entire series is like selling a rusty car but since the car was added new coats of paint and shiny and looks new fans of the model will do anything in their power defend it and after 10 years the dealer/seller had pretend that it new features and a new car with a great experience but when u open it up and try it, the first thing you'll see is how rotten it is and that u know that ur getting con like we're still stuck on p[s2 hair textures and the character models still isn't accurate to the wrestlers likenesses and still looks like they was dump and made out of plastic the story mode is still cringeworthy the hit detection is still off and it crashes when u download from community creations and 90% of its roster is no longer with this company but made it to this game, somehow. the dlc's are trash and its just feels like no creativity went into this game all they've been doing is slapped a coat of paint and called it a day the edition packs are still overpriced like nwo edition costed more then the standard game with zero replay revalue gm mode is extremely short and not worth coming back to the roster is a year outdated game is still glitchy buggy and unpolished gameplay its obvious that 2k and take two should've never gotten the license after thq inc.
    i think 2k has been overrated for years bcuz of their pasted glory days like nfl 2k5 and nba 2k11 those days are well behind them if u expect them to making any good games ur sadly mistaken. all they've done is introduced microtransactions and milk the fans with smackdown anniversary editions john cena edition nwo edition and every other edition packs that they can think of. now in this game its literally fifa in a wrestling game but instead of my team its called my faction so expect to gamble a 5/50 chance of u actually winning anything. lol and ppl say ea is bad and somehow youtubers advertises that they've like microtransactions by playing my faction also the game play has always been sluggish realistic style of gameplay and is trash. i rather see one else to get the wwe license at this point wwe games under taketwo/2k has been mediocre at best. and haven't done anything new with it besides removing features that was already in the game before they gotten the license from thq its been downhill ever since.
