WWE 2K23 is the latest installment in Visual Concepts' long-running WWE wrestling simulation franchise. Released in November 2022, WWE 2K23 aims to bring franchise veterans and newcomers alike deeper into the world of sports entertainment. We know this franchise has been around for a while and has even changed hands a few times in the past. And just like any other gae franchise that releases yearly versions, you need to change some things every release to keep the game fresh and fun for the players. So, now let’s talk about this latest installment of the game.
About the game
WWE 2K23 features over-the-top wrestling action and high flying acrobatics. Players can deliver forearms, clotheslines, DDTs, andPedigrees with the push of a button. They can also perform signature moves, finishers, and special weapons like steel chairs after filling a signature move gauge. Chokeholds,rest holds, and grinds allow wrestlers to wear down their opponents.
The game also introduces new mechanics like strike chains which create momentum to strengthen strikes, and retaliation systems which penalize players for dodging too many attacks. Users can utilize taunts and rivalries mid-match to gain advantages and further gameplay arcs. They can also lock up and counter each other's moves for mini-reversals and reversals.
WWE 2K23 competes most directly with WWE 2K22, the previous installment in the series. While WWE 2K22 focused more on homenage to past eras, WWE 2K23 brings several modern refinements to gameplay and modes. However, yearly releases and a lack of major franchises innovation beyond updated rosters, graphics, and mechanics have led to feelings of stagnancy. Players may find more appealing the simulation aspects of WWE 2K23's predecessor or competitor WWE Champions.
Tons of content and modes
Create modes remain hugely robust in WWE 2K23. Players can create custom wrestlers, arenas, championships, stories, and more with unmatched depth. They are able to modify all aspects from a wrestler's moveset and appearance to storyline progression, rivalries, allegiances, relationships, and dialogue. Cutscenes can showcase key story beats. The editor has received numerous improvements, making complex creation experiences more streamlined than ever before.
The game also boasts an immersive universe mode, weekly challenges and rewards, online leagues, feud creator tools, and enhanced match types including ladder, elimination, and tornado tag team matches. Online modes allow competitors to face off against others from around the world in ranked matches and tournaments.
Despite some fatigue with the franchise, WWE 2K23 stands as the deepest wrestling simulation on the market. For those looking to lose themselves in the world of sports entertainment, its combination of over the top gameplay, creation tools, authentic presentation, and universe building is unmatched.
Overall, WWE 2K23 is a robust entry in a series that continues refining itself rather than reinventing the wheel.
- Revamped grappling system and new momentum system add depth to the gameplay
- Variety of modes, including story-driven campaigns and online multiplayer
- Ability to create and customize your own wrestler adds personalization to the experience
- Lack of innovation and evolution compared to previous iterations of the franchise
- Technical issues, including glitches and bugs
