    Overall, WWE 2K19 is an evolutionary step forward for the series – but a big one. The return of the showcase mode offers up a lot to enjoy for fans of Daniel Bryan while the MyCareer mode brings things back that worked before – but tells a far better narrative than most. The debuting 2K Towers offer an ever-present challenge and are sure to make even seasoned players wince a time or two, and the revamped gameplay for things like striking and cage-related modes allows for more realistic matches than prior entries across the board.

    WWE 2K19 it’s the best WWE game since 2K takes the franchise in 2013. Although need changes in the playability side, but it has a lots of content, game modes and the biggest constellation of WWE Superstars ever.

    WWE 2K19 suffers from the same problems the WWE product does as a whole: a failure to move forward. The game is great and makes some very notable improvements, especially in MyPlayer and Showcase modes, but it also refuses to move beyond the dated engine that limits actual gameplay innovation.

    It definitely has its issues, but WWE 2K19 is the best game in the 2K series so far. Packed with content to work through and enjoyable MyCareer and Showcase modes, you’d be remiss not to give it a crack if you’re a wrestling fan.

    WWE 2K19 is a rebound in the right direction, but it is held back by many long-standing issues.

    WWE 2K19 struggles to meet expectations. It’s a mid-card talent with potential, but is too set in its ways to leave any lasting impact.

Множество режимов, хорошаяЕсли вы фанат рестлинга, коем являюсь я, то несомненно wwe 2k19 лучший способ развлечь себя на долгое время. Множество режимов, хорошая графическая и анимационная часть игры, понравится однозначно. Есть конечно и ложка дёгтя, wwe 2k19 не сделала прорыва в своей серии, зато смогла убрать множество недочетов и огрехов прошлой части. На вопрос стоит ли брать wwe 2k19 если ранее преобретал 18 часть, ответ будет скорее такой, придётся. Стоит ли брать игру если последний раз играл в 15, однозначно стоит. Стоит ли покупать если я играю в первые, и я не являюсь фанатом? В этом случае нет, покупать не нужно, иначе испортите рейтинг игре и поставете негативную оценку. Любите игры господа, и не нужно относится к ним настолько критично, как сейчас делают практически все, особенно когда игра единственная в своём жанре, намёк думаю понятен. Expand

    I've been playing WWE games since 2008 and honestly, this is one of the best that 2K has made. I'm so glad that Showcase returned, MyCareerI've been playing WWE games since 2008 and honestly, this is one of the best that 2K has made. I'm so glad that Showcase returned, MyCareer got some well-needed improvements and universe mode is finally worth playing. I haven't tried towers mode yet, but I presume it's gonna be great. My only issue is playing online. There is very noticeable lag (mainly on PS4), but I don't plan on playing online too often anyway Expand

    I want to give this a lower score, because it doesn't take nearly as many steps forward with the formula as it should given its upgrade inI want to give this a lower score, because it doesn't take nearly as many steps forward with the formula as it should given its upgrade in budget, but what actually is done with the formula highlights it as the very thing that post-2K15 WWE 2K could - and should - have been years ago. One major core gripe I do have is that the difficulty does feel incredibly toned down in comparison to past entries, although part of that has to do with the fact that AI opponents don't mash out counters nearly as often as they used to, and that counter regeneration has been buffed significantly, so you can counter far more often, and AIs counter marginally less often

    Early on, the RPG-styled MyPlayer progression system seems very promising, but potentially very grindy, very clearly wanting to make sure it feels like the 20 bonus points from the Deluxe Edition carry more weight than they did in a straightforward attribute system, as this time around, min-maxing one of the three branches (attack, body, and defense) gets you through one entire tier after your first career match with the added KickStart bonus. As for the career mode, the addition of voice acting and complex character animations do add layers to the story mode, but the story itself feels like a less successful attempt at the narrative-heavy story modes of games like Madden 18/19 and NBA 2K16, and it feels more like the latter than the former, warts and all. But for better or worse, it's also the most feature-complete WWE story mode in many years, by far.

    Now, might as well get to the positives. Firstly, I know it may be a hollow praise, but the visuals are VASTLY improved from previous iterations, and the character models look fantastic, although the character creator models still don't have quite the same polish. 2K's attempt at NetherRealm-esque living towers is also more hit than miss and gives a very arcade feel to things. WWE Universe is generally unchanged from 2K18, but there is more customkzation with the match potential of auto-generated matches: it still gives you the option to change up show matches on the fly, but if you like being surprised from show to show, it lets you customize what matches can actually show up on the match card, and with what frequency. Also, yes, this does extend to rivalry matches, which can make for even more interesting variation.

    Overall, WWE 2K19 doesn't evolve everywhere it needs to evolve, but it also evolves more than any WWE 2K before it

    WWE2K19 ressemble trait pour trait à ses cinq prédécesseurs.

    Parmi les quelques ajouts anecdotiques de l'opus se cache un mode Showcase pénible à jouer et un mode carrière malheureusement très mal pensé et raté.

    Difficile, donc, de prendre du plaisir sur ce qui semble être un DLC de 2K18.
    Aucune saveur, peu de volonté de bien faire.

    Ajoutez à cela un rendu daté, laid, peu soigné, et vous obtenez un jeu que vous regretterez d'acheter.
    Alors j'imagine que ça conviendra aux moins exigeants qui souhaitent simplement contrôler les lutteurs qu'ils apprécient, et c'est peut être finalement tout ce qui compte, ici...

    Iron Shiek: "WWE 2K F'n BullS*** (then spits) hark toooo" Vast majority get bored of this game within a month, I'm burnt out after playingIron Shiek: "WWE 2K F'n BullS*** (then spits) hark toooo" Vast majority get bored of this game within a month, I'm burnt out after playing this in only a week, its shocking on how horrendous it is too play against the AI. Stomp, Stomp, Stomp, Stomp that's how you beat the Ai in Legend or Hard, YouTubers cheese the game to be the best, FUN isn't it! , commentator responds "Oh Man!, Oh Man!, Oh Man!, Oh Man!, Oh Man!" every time you stomp. When you attack, you constantly miss or fail to grab the other wrestler, and PayBack is a **** I dominated a match with most of my health, then I wasn't able to reverse as the game glitched AGAIN!!! as Lesner with about max damage massacred me as I couldn't reverse for 3 mins so I quit knowing it glitched. 2K Towers is a pointless exercise, as Mysterio after the 1st match, the games animation goes into fast forward for some reason? if you find this mode fun, then you need a woman, loser! same with Career, Universe..
