This came out about 5 months before WCW closed. I remember everyone hating it, but most didn't even play it because WCW was so unpopular and No Mercy had just come out as well.

I never played it.

It looks terrible. Worse than the ECW games.

Russo looks like Dr Death.

Cool covers, but Rey being on the cover is weird since he definitely isn't getting a push now. You'd think it would be Lashley since I don't think he's had a cover before and he's on top.

If the gameplay is actually good this time (lol) I might buy it used in the future. But it just looks like every other WWE 2K game for Xbox One/PS4.
