WWE 2K20 is out now, and that means that we finally get the perverse pleasure of watching a whole bunch of ridiculous glitch videos showcasing all the possible ways that a wrestler can get mangled. 2K20 is no disappointment in that regard – but, uh, it seems to be disappointing in basically every other respect.
We’ve already looked at story mode, with its flat visuals and ridiculous dialogue, but the troubles don’t end there. A big Reddit post has collected a lot of the issues, but some of the lowlights are pretty astounding. Online in particular seems to be a mess – there are no custom match options, no entrances, no custom arenas, and the matches tend to open with a lengthy bout of intense lag.
Then there’s the just plain weird stuff. Some options are mislabeled so, for example, Evolution’s entrance theme is replaced by Jeff Hardy’s music. If you stick a logo on your career mode wrestler, career mode won’t load. If you taunt a ref at the wrong time, they’ll ignore pinfalls.
