WWE 2K17 : A Review

WWE 2K17 released this past week by the WWE and 2K is the game that could have been great.   It’s an entertaining game and the moves and the likeness of the characters are flawless , its just the lack of innovation from the previous 2K16 is major. Here are the pro’s and con’s of WWE 2K17. 

The Pro’s : 

  1. The characters moves, the moves on the wrestlers are flawless it feels like you are in a real WWE ring. The characters seem faster in the ring than in previous versions. This is one thing I do really like about the game.
  2. They did away with the quest to Wrestlemania and they have incorporated it into the WWE Universe for the game. This has streamlined the game and made it fun to play, as you guide through the months with Raw  and Smackdown on your way to Wrestlemania. 

The Con’s : 

  1. Same old same old story lines in the game in the Universe mode.  The characters turn on each other but all the stories and moves of these are just from 2K16. There is no innovation as they just copy 2K16 down to the same commentators of Cole and Lawler and Lawler hasn’t worked RAW or Smackdown in at least a year. What happened to the new WWE announcers , also would have been great to have some backstage interviews with the wrestlers before the matches started, or just some backstage drama. 
  2. The game needs to feel like you are a part of the WWE and they need to incorporate all the things that I described up above. Backstage segments or have during Raw a highlight reel with Jericho or something to make it more exciting for the player, instead of the same old thing. 

There you have it WWE 2k17 a good game but they could have made it great with just some more . Hopefully WWE 2k18 has more interaction for the home player, I just hope so .

#CancelWWENetwork

After a real bad ending to the Royal Rumble PPV, the WWE superfans had enough of the bad bookings of WWE and took to Twitter to show their anger.  #CancelWWENetwork was trending all last night and this morning on Twitter, and many people canceled their WWE Network subscription, to show their anger for bad booking of having Daniel Bryan a favorite to win the Rumble eliminated fast and early from the event. Also fans do not want Roman Reigns in the main event at Wrestlemania 31.  I think Reigns is a good wrestler, but the WWE is pushing him to hard and they need to build him up more. I’d rather have Dean Ambrose get the push than Reigns. I wonder if WWE will hear the superfans and start doing some smart booking in the future.  I think its time for the chairman to step down…….
