    Boasting a polished presentation, enjoyable gameplay that more closely resembles modern pro wrestling and two brilliantly executed modes in Showcase and MyRISE, WWE 2K22 is genuinely delightful and a defining chapter in its franchise’s legacy.

    Superbly playable console wrestling, that is suffering from severely outdated technology.

    WWE 2K22 is a tremendous leap forward compared to 2K20. The action is faster, more pick-up-and-play friendly, the roster of 160+ wrestlers has never looked better, and the addition of MyGM mode rounds out a well rounded offering of modes for just about every type of wrestling fan.

    After a bad game two years back, we now have another good sequel in the series. Visual Concepts has taken its time and it works out well. Modi such as MyRISE and MyGM are very cool, the audiovisual is well done and the gameplay is very refined yet accessible, making it appeal to a wide audience. WWE 2K22 does have some sloppiness here and there, but that's okay.

    This is a re-establishment year for the WWE 2K series. Let’s face it, WWE 2K20 was rough and while it took more than 2 years to develop, 2K has re-emerged with a strong and not only playable wrestling game, but a fun one. The engine is better and the basics are tighter, but we’re looking forward to more layers in the future.

    WWE is back with a fun game that serves as the promising foundation for all the good things that, we hope, will come with the future entries.

    WWE 2K22 is 2K Sports’ first mainline WWE game since 2019. Following the abysmal reception to 2K20 that year, 2K took an extra year to make sure bugs were squashed and character models looked the part while preserving the fun factor. The team behind the latest release has addressed most of these issues this time around, and while 2K22 is significantly better than its predecessor, the bar was absurdly low. The extra year has certainly helped, but ultimately, the final product still feels undercooked.

Stability-wise the game is a significant improvement over 2k20, as I've only encountered a couple of non-game breaking bugs so far.
    My biggest gripes are with seemingly no additions to the Create-a-wrestler system, and a lot of features and wrestlers being pointlessly locked away behind a micro-transactions heavy part of the game.

    This game is pure trash, after playing 60 hours. Filled with bugs, an absolute trash game. The game has tons of bugs and alot of crashes.
