I’ve played every annual WWE game from ’06-’15, but fell off after that due to some of the changes and series fatigue. Trying to get back into the series with last year’s WWE 2K18 did not give me anything close to what I wanted, so I wasn’t expecting much from this year’s latest cash in. I felt like my old love could never be rekindled, but I adore wrestling and wanted to give these games another shot, remembering how much fun I used to have with them. I was hoping to have my boots blown off by the new and amazing offering, but I’ll settle for my socks instead.
After the download finally finished and I could play more than a basic match, I got a full look at the new aesthetics for the opening visuals and menus. It seems like the development team were big fans of Avengers: Infinity War and the majority of it takes place mid-snapture, but I do have to say it is creative and different enough that it doesn’t feel like a re-skinned interaction menu at first.
