    Ahh very tempted, but I finally just 1k'ed 2K16 a few days ago and I heard 2K17 is much worse with the grinding especially online, even if this game becomes GwG in a few months I don't know if I want to do it this time.

    Any opinions?

    I'm with you. I still have 174 career matches to grind and just don't want to bother. Until they make these games better, I'm no longer buying them. If anything just get the 360 version for the easy 1k

    Was wondering why it said I owned the game. Still not worth grinding through the shitty online.

    As much as I love watching wrestling I don't know if I want to commit to that grind. Although some of the high ratio achievements look quite straightforward?

    I had this & traded it as I got most of the Achievements out of it.

    I downloaded it last night as it'll be fun to play again in between other games.

    If you haven't played it yet, then it's not a massive step up from 2K16, but there are some differences & it's enjoyable. The new Ladder Matches are fun & you actually have to unclip the Belt, plus the Ladder Finisher on one outside the ring is good. There's an Achievement too for it, so pick Kevin Owens as your Character to get it.

    Career Mode is a slog again, and having no Showcase set 2K17 back a little bit, as does the Online again, but it's Free, and there's quite a few easy Achievements to get before Monday.

    There are guys like me who are completionists though who just don't want to leave a game hanging for too long.

    Guess I may pick this up if it becomes GwG later this year, even that discounted Kickstarter right now looks tempting too.

    I advise you do not start it as a completionist. You just did 2k16, which is a mental challenge, this is the same but with a larger online grind as well as the mycareer again!

    Mycareer is more straightforward, just make sure you do not pick a cruiserweight as you are locked out of one of the high ratio achievements! I used a downloaded CM Punk thinking he was heavyweight, and someone made him and uploaded him as a cruiserweight!!

    Yeah took me like 200-300 matches with a partner to finish the online in 2K16, heard it may take up to 800(!!!) in 2K17, hope its not true otherwise I will be skipping this one entirely.

    I grinded that 2k main event. As long as I hit a finisher, got hit by a finisher and kicked out I got nearly 1k xp every match. Horrible online experience. Just horrible. Never want to go through a grind like that again. And this game is made for kids? Lol i didn't have that attention span when I was a kid.

    For it to be even the remotest bit enjoyable it needs to be a massive step up from 2K16.

    you actually have to unclip the Belt, plus the Ladder Finisher on one outside the ring is good. There's an Achievement too for it, so pick Kevin Owens as your Character to get it.
    None of that makes the game any good

    and having no Showcase set 2K17 back a little bit
    A lot, as it's the only good mode in the current gen games.

    This game, like it's current gen predecessors, is embarrassingly bad(don't be fooled by it not being on this account), especially when the previous gen versions of the games are much, much better than this slow boring crap.

    It's a rip-off even though it's free.

    I suppose it depends on time zones.

    Nice! I haven't gotten this game yet, but I did have WWE 2K16.

    I really like the Free Play Weekend events. They really do help me decide whether or not I should buy a game.

    I used to 100% all the WWE games but after doing MP 2k15 and hearing what the grind for 2k16 was like I might just retire and not even look at 2k17

    Do all WWE games have such a shitty annoying control?
