WWE 2K22 takes the recommendation for 7 points out of 10. The series has taken a new breath, but there are still some shortcomings and mistakes remain. Other parts will hopefully be a little better.

WWE 2K22 is a fantastic return to form for the series, and probably the best wrestling game I’ve played in several years. Admittedly there are some rough edges here and there, but the MyRise mode in particular was incredibly enjoyable and most importantly: the game was just fun to hit. WWE 2K22 does in fact hit different.

Efforts were made to keep 2020 as a road accident, and this time they came up with a game like it should have. With plenty of game mode and plenty of content, a fun WWE experience awaits you.

‎While there are certainly still things to note about the game, WWE 2K22 is a decent improvement over its predecessor. The gameplay runs much smoother which makes the battles feel more realistic and also look more natural. Unfortunately, this has come at the expense of extensive customizations in both characters and entrances. Despite the few bugs and crashes, WWE 2K22 is a big step in the right direction.‎

The notorious wrestling franchise that has needed a soft reboot for a near decade has now arrived, undoubtedly welcomed by fans. A familiar formula that doesn't fracture the flow intended for its initial fanbase, yet promulgates all pre-existing and polished mechanics, with Visual Concepts own added twist.

WWE 2K22 fixes many of the serious bugs of the previous game and builds a solid foundation to build on with great gameplay and interesting game modes. Although minor, there are issues that need to be fixed, but there is a lot of fun to be had here.

My problem with this year's title, is that it was presented for the big change of the franchise and what I saw is a big step in the right direction, but everything somewhere was reminiscent of his old bad self.

WWE 2K22 is a massive step up in quality for the troubled wrestling franchise. The gameplay engine is in great shape, and the mode quality is mostly solid. While there are improvements to be made going forward, I'm no longer totally hopeless about the future of the series.

WWE 2K22 is the step forward that the saga needed after a year of more than necessary rest. Wrestling reclaims its throne and comes ready to give war to anyone who gets in front of it.

2K and Visual Concepts have been able to get the WWE 2K series back on track with WWE 2K22, and in time we'll probably get the wrestling game that can be described as the best wrestling game ever.

WWE 2K22 is jam-packed with content, and it represents a significant step forward in terms of graphics and quality when compared to its predecessors. However, there are also significant flaws in the game especially when it comes to multiplayer matches, but a solid groundwork has surely been laid for the future WWE games of this series.

Overall WWE 2K22 on my Series X seemed like a breath of fresh air, and it is well down the path to its former glory. My experience overall was a positive one even though we did experience some minor issues. I would prefer the roster to be correct and up-to-date. The bad thing is though if the outdated roster does get updated, the selection of superstars will go down. The Showcase by far was the absolute best part, especially with the documentary feel that Rey Mysterios’ narration provides. Even though some of the modes feel a bit stripped down over what they could be, they filled out the package enough to make it feel substantial. This game is welcoming to all players new and old alike and will provide hours of great gameplay. WWE 2K22 seems to have a partial roadmap already and has even already announced some of its upcoming DLC. It will have many different people from Rob Van Dam, Ronda Rousey, Yokozuna, Stacy Keibler, to even Mr. T, Machine Gun Kelly, and some others. Even with the issues experienced here, I can say overall the game was good. The future for the 2K series after this release seems bright, and I am excited to see how they continue to redeem themselves.

WWE 2K22 manages to polish a lot of issues from the previous game, but it's still not quite there yet. The good thing though is that it seems they put the first stone right, and the future of the series could be bright.
