3 out of 5 eggsA review by someone who has played the series since its inception

Pros: The good news:

The roster is one of the strongest ever, especially if you purchase the season pass and download the available DLC. Superstars and Divas have (many of them, at least) much more on offer in the way of alternate attires. Characters from different eras as well as the present are on hand. There are a handful of classic managers as well.

Being able to manage rivalries in Universe mode (and have somewhat finer control over what the mode does on its own in terms of creating and breaking up teams and so forth) is a welcome, if superficial addition.

Online feels much smoother and less prone to downtime and lag. I have yet to have a created superstar preview or download hang, which is a vast improvement over previous years.

Being able to specify which themes and music play on menus is a huge relief after years of being forced to repeatedly listen to, "Whoooah! You're only smoke and mirrors!" for hours on end while editing CAWs.

Created titles seem to have more components and options this year, which is nice.

Cons: The bad news:

This sounds like a lot on paper, but in practice feels like a shallow fine tuning of the previous game.

I can create and manage rivalries now, but Universe Mode still makes baffling and inconsistent matches, and rivalries are still boring, repetitive, and superficial. There is no sense of build or drama. Just the same canned moments repeating ad nauseum, often in ways that make no sense within the context of the match that just happened.

Gameplay is still mechanically "floaty," hit or miss in terms of collision, and prone to glitches. Weight detection - which again exists as an option to be turned on or off - still seems to do almost nothing. (CM Punk can still GTS Andre the Giant without any noticeable gameplay or animation difference from GTSing Rey Mysterio.)

Moves and holds still sometimes damage the wrong body parts (Buzzkiller, aka the crossface chickenwing damages the head instead of the arm. What?)

Commentary is even more abysmal than before. (Once while Daniel Bryan held Punk in the Yes Lock for an extended period, Cole kept repeating lines about brilliant reversals while none were happening. "Brilliant reversal by Bryan!" "Bryan with a quick counter!" At least twice now participants not even in the match or at ringside were mentioned.)

Entirely new bugs (such as present day Rock coming out when the match screen and Universe both said "The Rock (Retro)" or wrestlers in the Inactive roster appearing in Universe,) as well as old familiar nuissences (editing Retro Taker's entrance at all makes his hat disappear, never to return unless you use a motion option other than the one he originally came with) drive me mad and are totally inexplicable.

Other Thoughts: As a hardcore fan of these games since the earliest THQ days (before they were even called Smackdown, and AKI was still around) and who has faithfully played them every year, I of course enjoy the game. I always have. It's more of a tradition for me and my pro wrestling fan friends than just a game purchase, so I'm biased.

But if I'm honest, in my opinion the game is merely... alright. Good even, in and of itself. However the improvements over last year's game feel shockingly minor, even for a series where changes are usually more incremental than revolutionary. And the characteristic clunkiness, glitchiness, and inconsistency of the series seems worse than ever to me this time around.

The only substantive feeling additions to the game are 1) the roster, and 2) the 30 years of WrestleMania mode. The latter is, essentially, this series' take on Legends of WrestleMania. Complete with archival video packages and match objectives. It's a lot of fun, and a great trip down memory lane. But it suffers from all of the gameplay inadequacies the rest of the game does at the same time.

At the end of the day, this feels like fine tuning with a roster update thrown in. They might just as well release regular roster updates and only release new games every few years, with more substantive gameplay enhancements each time at this rate.

Ultimately Yukes, remnants of the THQ team, and 2K have a dilemma: keep making games that incrementally improve an aging, buggy base in order to keep the treasure trove of features we all know and love, or start from scratch with a better engine and rebuild tech, but lose many of those features. (They would then presumably be included back into the games as the series moved forward.)

They're between a rock and a hard place, and so are we. As I said, this has become something of a tradition among my friends. I don't want to lose the parts of that tradition that I love, particularly Create-a-Superstar (which I still call CAW.) But I also don't think I can stomach another year of this engine and all its problems.

It's time for a change in my opinion, no matter how painful that might be.

4 out of 5 eggsWWE 2K14 Playstation 3

Pros: The game is great, the little changes from last year are noticeable and lead to a better experience. Can't wait for the next game from 2K.

Cons: Pre ordered game from Newegg so I could play as Ultimate Warrior. When game showed up I did not receive code to unlock the Warrior. contacted customer service to try to resolve the problem. customer service pretended that they didn't know what i was talking about. I told them to go their website and it still says play as the Ultimate Warrior when you pre-order the game. The game I would give a 4 Newegg I would give 0. not happy!

Other Thoughts: Newegg should have known if they were part of the pre-order promotion. feel I was mislead by Newegg.
