Ok folks time for another review for this one I'm going Modern so with that I present WWE 2k17 which is out for the Xbox One,PS4 Xbox 360 PS3 and Windows. I will be reviewing the Xbox One Version here

Image


I will skip my normal intro and get right to the review


Graphics-This is the absolute most beautiful wrestling game ever made. Everything is created in great and beautiful detail the wrestlers,the arenas,All beautiful

Image


Sound-The sound of this game is good for the most part the only bad part is the in match commentary it's so repetitive and boring but that's par for the course with every wrestling game ever that has this feature.


Gameplay-The Gameplay is pretty good here though there is a learning curb if you haven't played any of the games for Xbox one or PS4. But overall it plays really good. The guys move more realistically than ever before. Your standard WWE 2k game modes are all here including WWE Universe mode which is completely revamped forthe first time ever you can have 3 different Universe Saves going which means 3 seperate Universes to have fun with.In Universe Mode you create your roster of wrestlers your weekly TV shows and Monthly PPV's You set rivalries and now you can even do Promos in your TV shows unfortunately the Promos aren't very good at all they are all generic as heck which sucks the fun out of it. But the overall WWE universe experience is Fantastic and can really suck you in. The Create a Wrestler is the greatest it's ever been and that is really saying something. The amount of Detail you can use is even greater this time around thanks to a website for Community Creations that allows you to upload pics from your computer to use in the game for things like Logos , Ring Attires even wrestlers faces,You can even use this for Creating Championships so your created titles look like the real thing.The only bad thing is no custom soundtracks which is the fault of Microsoft not 2kgames. There is also MYCAREER where you use a created wrestler and play through the career of a WWE Suerstar. It's a nice idea but it's execution just sucks,It's so tedious and boring at times it takes so much playing just to make a little headway.Another few gripes I have with Gameplay is that you can't do time limits on matches,They took out the Mixed Tag Team matches and took out the 3 on 3 elimination matches in the Elimination Chamber.


Roster-The roster of this game is pretty good a mix of current WWE wrestlers including several from NXT and a mix of WWE Legends and Hall of Famers I'm not going to list all of them because it would take too long lol so I'll mention some of the standouts like Sting making his 3rd appearance in a WWE Game, The Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes,Buddy Roberts and Jimmy Garvin) Kevin and Kerry Von Erich,Earthquake and Typhoon,The New Age Outlaws,Razor Ramon and Diesel as well as their WCW Personas,Jim Neidhart,Bret Hart(both WWE and WCW Versions) British Bulldog,Brian Pillman,Steve Austin(Both Stone Cold and Stunning Steve versions)Psycho Sid,Tatanka,Papa Shango,The Godfather,Brutus Beefcake,and Greg The Hammer Valentine.


The Final Piece of this review is the Online portion-This absolutely 100 percent SUCKS. The Gameplay is so laggy and bogged down it's pretty much unplayable. Reversals are so hard to do because of the lag.The sad thing is it's been this way for YEARS and they have made no attempt to make it better.


Well there you have it folks WWE 2k17 here is the final breakdown


Graphics-A+

Sound-B

Gameplay-A

Roster-A

Online-F++++++++

for a final grade of A.


I'm not sure what game to do next but I'm open for suggestions :)

Could you do a review for Tecmo World Wrestling for the NES some day? I've always liked that one, and I feel that it's by far the best of all the 8 bit era wrestling games.

How does 2K17 stack up with 2K16? I just returned 2K16 for All Stars because I just could not grasp the controls, and I felt like I lost for cheap reasons.

Angry Nerd just made a video of all the NES and SNES wrestling games. Basically he trashed all the games with the LJN label and praised one on SNES made by Midway. Once I saw the title of his video I instantly thought about this thread.
