Overall, I love this game and – apart from Wargames – I can see myself playing this for hours upon hours without getting bored of it. The days of button-bashing your way through a WWE game are definitely over.
Even better than last year, WWE 2K23 shows the rising return of the series, building on last year's already solid foundation. With an excellent Showcase mode, an even better MyRISE and many additions to MyGM, it is a must-have for wrestling fans and capable of providing players dozens of hours of fun.
WWE 2K23 is the first major work born on the foundations laid last year. Curious to understand what Visual Concepts will offer us next year (the third year is always the most substantial), and and despite the small uncertainties found in the Showcase mode and in the nature of the MyFaction mode, we are enjoying the return of Wrestling towards the top of the sports video games.
After a tumultuous few years of WWE releases, 2K and Visual concepts have finally been able to begin building on the solid foundations of last year’s game. WWE 2K23 isn’t a huge step up from 2K22 with long load times and a surprisingly unpolished Showcase Mode for John Cena, but the series has still shown growth, considering War Games is pure chaos and MyRise is much improved. The future is once again bright for WWE and 2K, and so WWE 2K23 should be celebrated by fans as though they’ve just won their first world championship.
WWE 2K23 mostly succeeds in building up on it´s precedessors strengths, without offering too much that wasn´t available in all those years before. Remaining as an overall enjoyable mix of arcade and simulation elements with WarGames as a good, but not always flawlessly excecuted new addition, the mediocre presentation, ever-present glitches and Pay-2-Win | Pay-2-Shortcut in MyFaction are still a big letdown.
Looks like the best wwe 2k series. As it's a wwe 2k series, there are countless bugs and personally there's only a little difference compared to the 2k22 and the meagre roster was very disappointing, but I still had fun playing. Sounds good for wwe game series initiation!
So this years game is a step in the right direction. The myrise story is actually pretty good . Graphics are pretty nice . The gameplay could be better but that’s expected when your using an outdated game engine. Myfaction is playable to an extent. But the reason for the 4/10 is the horrific online servers . These servers are worse then last years game . So with how bad these servers are with the lobby’s crashing and myfaction just not working online . The single player modes can’t save this game from this review. When after how many patches ur servers continue to be horrible and online being unplayable. Then the price should not be 70$ it should be like 40$ at best . Because once again 2k releases another unfinished game . An I’d go as far as saying this is worse then 2k20’s release. Oh an I forgot to mention all the glitches and hackers that plague this game .
SummaryExpanded features, gorgeous graphics, and the ultimate WWE experience. Hit the ring with a deep roster of WWE Superstars and Legends including Roman Reigns, "American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes, Ronda Rousey, Brock Lesnar, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and more!
