I honestly liked this game as a long-time Wrestling fan. Compared to WWE 2k20, this game actually brought a lot of improvements to the table. What I liked about this game is the controls, it feels solid and fluid this time. It also even felt like an arcade-type control. The character models also improved graphically since it is considered one of those Next-generation games. Although the character movements seem off at times which I do understand from a point of view of an animator and game developer. The showcase mode where you will re-experience Rey Mysterio's notable career matches is actually one of my favorite features of this game. I was impressed by how seamless the transitions from the game up to the real match happened in between. I hope they could have added more stuff like that, say, for example, the Undertaker's story and other superstars. overall, I love how this game entertained me compared to the previous 2K. I played this game with my friends and we got endless fun. Lastly, I want to point out that the number of rosters presented in this game is somewhat small. There are lots of superstars missing from the roster. I hate the fact that they converted a superstar's costume into a separate character. It is redundant for me. Expand the rosters and this game will be a perfect 10 for me.
