Mitchell Saltzman

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.

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

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.

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
