    WWE 2K20 has good ideas as a whole and can amuse the most ardent fans of the saga, but its technical problems and its control do not finish working as previous releases.

    A sorry mess at the time of launch, but worth persisting with if you’re a series fan. [Issue#184, p.73]

    WWE 2K20 is a buggy mess, but its gameplay also feels notably worse than previous years.

    WWE 2K20 lacks anything new,with a poor story mode and bad animations, and the wrestling is plagued with technical issues that ruin any kind of enjoyment you may have.

    The core product still has a good deal to offer. Unfortunately a bevy of technical and gameplay issues give the impression that Visual Concepts needed more time with this title. I imagine that 2K20 will continue to receive patches and support that make it better, but in its current state it is impossible to recommend this over last year's version of the game.

    There is no reason to pick this game up when far better WWE 2K games are out there, and we don't recommend it to anyone, even someone that lives and breathes WWE.

    lets be honest.... this game was hilariously rushed. Glitches everywhere, at least the first days. In my experience with this game I haventlets be honest.... this game was hilariously rushed. Glitches everywhere, at least the first days. In my experience with this game I havent encountered that many glitches the ocasional referee disolving, sticky ropes, or limbs that have rag doll like physics. Nothing that was not present on previous WWE2K games (except dissolving refs).
    Now gameplay wise ive been reading constant bashing to the controls changes. I mean cmon theyre basically the same controls, Reversal with Y took sometime getting used to, but tbh I kinda like it better that way, same with the finishers.
    My Player history i liked. Same as before i've read about the complains of the PS2 graphics. And having played through the career I can say that i really enjoyed it. The story had me hooked and nods to last years career was a nice touch. Halfway through career mode I noticed a slight improvement in graphics, NPCs mouths moved while they talked, animation were more fluent. Guess they did that part first.
    Facials on the wrestlers are weird but the overall presentation I think its better looking. Hopefully today's patch fixes some of the issues to make it a better overall experience.

    I buy the WWE games every year. WWE 2K19 was a genuinely good wrestling game. This game on the other hand is complete garbage and isI buy the WWE games every year. WWE 2K19 was a genuinely good wrestling game. This game on the other hand is complete garbage and is unplayable from Glitches to Bugs to full console crashes this game is clearly not even near finished and that is clear by the graphics downgrade alone! Wrestlers look like monsters in this game. I got a refund and I hope anyone who bought this game does too. Never again 2K. Expand

    Do not buy this game. Do not even think about buying this game. Even if it's on sale 2k do not deserve your money. I bought this game for fullDo not buy this game. Do not even think about buying this game. Even if it's on sale 2k do not deserve your money. I bought this game for full price on launch and to this day I believe I've experienced more crashes than actual matches. Load times are horrific, you'll constantly find yourself stuck in loading screens that never end. I feel genuinely robbed after spending money on this - absolutely everyone who worked on this should be ashamed of themselves. Expand

    What a disaster of a game. This game is not fit to be released. Shocking. Let the fans down big time.

    Lo peor que ha sacado la franquicia en el ultimo tiempo
    Tecnicamente horrible lleno de bugs
    Los controles del asco, preferible los conrroles

    2k origenes, absurdo, aunque se destaxa la idea de hacer algo nuevo, pero siempre horible y aburrido o simplemente mal realizado
