WWE 2K18 is here! In fact, it’s been out a couple of weeks now, which means we’ve all had plenty of time to create our CAWs and win some championships because, let’s face it, none of us have lives. I could have reviewed this game as soon as it came out, but due to the sheer amount of different content and features in the latest yearly instalment from 2K Games, I wanted to put plenty of playtime into the new release before I critiqued it, to make sure my review was as thorough and detailed as possible. So, is 2K18 worth your hard-earned cash, or will you have to make 2K17 last for another year? Let’s find out.
I’ve spent a significant portion of my life playing wrestling video games, and it’s probably one of the main reasons why my social and romantic lives are both in the state they are. The majority of the many, many hours I have sunk into these grappling games were spent playing story modes – career modes, roads to Wrestlemanias, season modes, whatever name they were under, I was obsessed with them. Over the years, I’ve played plenty of fantastic story modes (click here for a list on those), but I’ve also wasted plenty of hours on some absolute stinkers that left me feeling bored, and at times, angry.

Here are my Top 10 Worst Story Modes in Wrestling Video Games.
Every single year, without fail, I buy the annual instalment in the WWE video game franchise.

With around a dozen WWE games in my current collection, it’s rare that a day goes by where I don’t indulge is some virtual grappling. Despite my love for these games though, I will be the first to admit that they’re not perfect. While most of the games are Wrestlemania X-7 levels of good, some of their features are Wrestlemania 9 levels of bad. So today, I’m looking at the virtual atrocities in otherwise great graps games. Here are the Top 10 Worst Things in WWE Video Games.
I’ve spent a significant portion of my life playing wrestling video games, and it’s probably one of the main reasons why my social and romantic lives are both in the state they are (I’ll give you a clue as to how they’re going, I run a wrestling blog and a poetry blog, work it out for yourself). The majority of the many, many hours I have sunk into these grappling games were spent playing story modes – career modes, roads to Wrestlemanias, season modes, whatever name they were under, I was obsessed with them.
