WWE 13 review highlights persistent flaws
Today sees the release of WWE 13, but the timing of this game is not the best it could be because of a certain Assassin’s Creed 3. There seems to be so much hype towards the latter title, but the faithful fans of the WWE series of games will not care and only has one game on their minds – well for the moment anyway. We have said in the past how the latest version of the game has been vastly improved, but one review we read seems to highlight the persistent flaws from the franchise.
You’d think that WWE 12 was a pretty bad installment from the franchise when you read about all the advancements that THQ have made to WWE 13, but you’d be wrong because a number of key factors were changed, and while it didn’t make the game perfect, it was a start. THQ has carried on from where they left off, but IGN notes that there are still a few flaws within the game lingering from previous versions of WWE. We’re being told that some of the issues that persist include not only audio and video but also animation as well. That’s not all, THQ has not gone far enough with improving the Creative and Universe Modes.
However, they’re still impressed with WWE 13 and overall scored the game 8.4 out of 10. The worrying thing here is the fact that last year IGN scored WWE 12 a 9 out of 10 – maybe expectations were much higher this time?
Another review has been a little more in favor of WWE 13, saying that it offers you the best experience to date and even if you’re not that into wrestling games that much it’s worth getting– pretty expensive if you won’t like it though. Overall the review gave WWE 13 a 4.5 out of 5.
It’s clear to see that THQ has raised the bar with WWE 13, but there’s no getting away from the fact that all the fans wish to do is take control of their favorite wrestler from the Attitude Era and take their opponent out.
