Lackluster entry in a franchise that was on the right path with the solid succession from 2K18 to 2K19. The game was drastically improved through updates since it's day one mess, but the damage had been done. In-ring gameplay is solid, new elements added in comparison to the previous installment. Recurrent crashes, freezes and menu bugs make the game unbearable on PC.
I honestly don't know why this is even in my library. I enjoying repeating a certain timeline in the universe every now and then but that's about it. The port is broken as hell and the developers spare any concern for such tabulating issues. I perhaps won't buy another 2K or, WWE game for that matter on PC ever again. It's only as enjoyable as it gets on console and, I think almost everyone can chime in their 2 cents on how much they care about producing an efficient port for the PC.
That ends my complaint about the port; as for the game, I don't I've seen a game as depressingly sabotaged as this in years - cough, cough, WWE All Stars - not to mention Battleground. I'm not a big wrestling fan but, I did own every SVR game on PS2 and own WWE 2K19 on Xbox. I can't say I love those games but they do provide me with enough enjoyment to keep kicking the bucket again. I can't seem to express any interest in the design philosophy of this game, it's intrinsically dead and hollow. There is barely any change to the system and where there is, it's worse. For god's sake, add multi-championship title options to Universe mode already: what's so wrong with having an undisputed title system ?
VC, please stick to one set of controls, don't keep changing them every other year. I literally had to train my muscle memory to react to the reversal cues between 2K19 and 2K20: they leave me in utter confusion every now and then. While I admit that this is a thing every developer or console industry does, it's more of a generational thing rather than frequent. Remember when inverted controls were the 'norm' ? Yeah, me too. I didn't like it at all. They filled me with the most devastating nightmares- even worse than the likes of any Lovecraftian or Shelley novel.
To sum it up, Visual Concepts needs to know that its audience isn't expecting another SVR or WWE 'XX game. It wants all the fluidity and freedom those games offered, along with some innovation that doesn't have to interfere or get in the way of our enjoyment. At this point, 2K games are nothing more than mid-ranged EA excuse notes.
