Critic Reviews for WWE 2K18

Under the better-than-ever graphics and great-as-ever core wrestling gameplay, WWE 2K18 is a largely disappointing iteration. It wastes too much of its ambition on the poorly written and dull MyCareer RPG mode, leaving its other promising modes to languish for another year. What few enhancements we get to the carry mechanics and eight-person matches are welcome, but not as much of a year-over-year refresh as would be needed to keep the excitement level as high as it's been in past years.

More frustrating because of the things it gets right than the blindingly obviously problems with bugs, a dull career mode, and a strange new loot box system.

Exceptional when it all works, but for the third year running launch-day gremlins prohibit an even greater score.

WWE fans might get a kick out of creating their own wrestlers, entrances, and promos, but the basic mechanics won't appeal to a wider crowd

With the glitches piling up and very little in the way of innovation, WWE 2K18 continues the series' floundering output.

Much like being a fan of the real thing, WWE 2K18 is often more of a chore than it is fun. Hilariously, yet tragically, I still find myself hoping it'll be better next time.

2K Games and Yuke's have heard the critics and learned from them. WWE 2K18 improves throughout its predecessor. My Career mode is full of possibilities and Road to Glory gives endless fun. In addition, WWE 2K18 has somes new mechanics that brings variety to the fights and it has the largest roster in the entire series.

Despite some light areas of concern with gameplay and some of the auxiliary modes and features, the core of the WWE 2K franchise has been strengthened. It won't scratch every itch that virtual wrestling fans have, but the game is deep and fun. At the end of the day, that's what we're looking for in video games.
