A soundtrack that covers several types of rock and a bit of hip-hop, yet somehow manages to be enormously repetitive, the same few tunes seemingly on a loop. Commentary is decent enough, but during drawn out matches, some lines can start to repeat.
While the physics can sometimes be a mite wonky, WWE 2K22 has clearly benefitted from the extra development time, its rebuilt engine resulting in a game that looks about as near as damn it to the real thing. Presentation is polished, too, with decent character models and arenas that recreate the atmosphere of a main event.
A marked improvement over WWE 2K20, and the best the series has been in quite some time. And while there are minor annoyances (the mini-game for grabbing the Money in the Bank briefcase is silly), overall, WWE 2K22 manages to be intuitive without compromising anything.
Every mode you could care to think of crammed into one generous package, and none of it feels at all redundant. What's here is well presented, too, especially the 2K Showcase, MyFaction, and MyGM modes, all of which provide genuinely entertaining and engaging experiences. Granted, a lot of Superstars in 2K22 have now left the WWE, rendering the roster out of date, which is a bit of a shame.
Not the most inspired list, nonetheless it does serve to encourage you to give everything that WWE 2K22 has to offer a go, whether it's completing objectives in MyFaction, milestones in MyRise, or challenges in 2K Showcase. A decent list with a good spread.
