Unlike other recent sports titles, WWE 2K18 doesn't show the significant evolution one expects from such a popular franchise, and still feels dated and a little clunky.
PROS
Plentiful roster of superstars; Great intros before fights
CONS
Dated menu layout; Clunky mechanics; Lacks polish
VERDICT
All in all, as the only truly licensed WWE experience available at the moment, it's hard to look past WWE 2K18. But the game doesn't feel as polished as we were hoping for, or indeed as it needs to be. With a game engine that still yields clunky looking fights that are better placed in a title from a few years ago, this latest offering has not moved with the times. The only real saving grace is the chock-a-block roster of superstars to choose from, which adds enough nostalgia to blind gamers from WWE 2K18's
