I haven't bought a wwe game since 2008, and that ain't stopping now. I want a game like AKI or Smackdown series, especially one with a booker mode. I'm really craving a booker mode.

The graphics are really good in the first 40 seconds, but then they started showing the PS2 version for some reason.

Looks like the exact same game as last year, and the year before and the year before.

That Smackdown mode will be the only thing I'll mark out for.

Other than that, when's the AKI AEW game?

Crazy how i can be satisfied with the graphics of the ps2/gamecube era wrestling. I think they should shoot for that as the graphics and add more lighting and worry about the resolution and animation. 2k wrasslin just doesnt look good to me.

googled Visual Concepts and was surprised to learn they have 5 studios—including one in LA working on these games—and another one of them is making a racing game?

I would take another legends game( with better gameplay) over one of these games. The formula to me just seems tired and I'm not into the current crop of wrestlers.

If that special edition is true, Chyna finally appearing in a game is bittersweet. They've finally acknowledged her but after she died. Pricks.

I'm probably going to pass unless they do some major changes. I liked 19 but it was still an incremental jump from the last one.

2K19 was really good 🤷🏻‍♂️. Best version of the game in years—I’ve been playing it year round, rather than dropping off after a month or two. Fun career mode, decent showcase, Towers mode is super fun.

The worst part is the sound design. If they can finally get the crowd and the commentary sounding good, it’ll be a really solid wrestling game. I have more faith in 2K than I do in WWE fixing their awful shows, honestly.

Same, but only because I've heard chatter that Yuke's will be gone after this contract in a few years. Hell, even Yuke's themselves think these games are bad and they're making another wrestling game to show what they could do with some time and budget.

2k will probably make it a well playing game deep in microtransaction hell

That was a period of like 6 years. From the time WCW/NWO came out on n64 until the Shane buying WCW storyline in WWE. It's been trash ever since. A few blips of good here and there (Becky WM main event, NXT start) but American wrestling has been garbage for 2 decades now.
I agree, except I can't stand Becky or Roman Reigns and as they're both the top stars I don't watch.

I'm always interested, but the fact is, they have'nt changed much at all since 2k13/4 tbh, we've only just been able to get 8 Characters on screen again (since 2001 I should add which was the first time they did that) wheres my massive Royal rumble mode or at least a proper 5v5 Survivor series match, go all out!

The thing is, yukes have seemed to forget that in making these as sim like as possible, they've forgotten that they're supposed to be fun games as well, hence why No Mercy is still held in high regard

Adds Chyna but not intergender matches. Feels bad.

Least I could mod it. Doesn't seem like they've added much more, towers do not interest me at all, neither does showcase.

The grind was one of the main reasons why I turned away from the series. Took forever to unlock all the legends and don't even get me started on the story mode grind.

My friends and I still reminisce about the Federation we had in No Mercy. The gameplay was just so tight there.

I can't believe it has been almost 20 years since a great Wrestling sim was on the market. All Stars was a nice reprieve, too bd it sold like shit.

Interesting... in the press release that 2K just put out, they say the game is being developed solely by Visual Concepts. Doesn't mention Yuke's anywhere in the release.

I wonder if Yuke's is off the series now? Could they have licensed the engine over to VC?

Edit: Just checked, previous press releases all said "Developed collaboratively by Yuke’s and Visual Concepts."
