Last year saw the downfall of THQ, and with it came uncertainty as to the future of the WWE video game franchise. It wasn’t long before the announcement came that 2K Sports was taking the reigns, but everyone knew that with a yearly release schedule to uphold, a built-from-scratch game was impossible. And so, longtime developer Yuke’s was brought into the fold for one last go-round. Their collaborative effort WWE 2K14 thus feels very similar to past entries, yet still manages to create an impact. While the engine is largely unchanged – bringing with it longstanding AI and commentary issues – its huge roster and stellar story mode manage to keep things interesting.
