Simon Miller scored WWE 2K17 a favourable 8/10 in his review, describing it as “the best wrestling game in years.”

“WWE 2K17 is the best wrestling game in years and also introduces some new features that should become highlights over time. A complete overhaul at some point in the future wouldn’t go amiss, just to see what 2K is capable of with a fresh slate, but what’s been added here is all very welcome and well executed.”

“Sure, the lack of a showcase mode is disappointing, but the pros far outweigh the cons. 2K17 gets it right in the most important area, and that’s between the ropes.”
