WWE 2K22 Graphics Compared to Old WWF Game: WWE 2K22 has finally come out, and it’s been a huge change for the series since WWE 2K20 came out in 2019. When WWE 2K21 came out, it didn’t do well. So 2K decided to scrap the game and give fans the wrestling game they wanted.
Sports games have always been one of the most popular games. And WWE has been at the top of the list with other popular games like FIFA and Madden. Since 1987, the WWE has been making games.
The first WWE game, called MicroLeague Wrestling, came out in 1987. Wrestling video games had just as much competition as the companies that made them.
The WWE and WCW both made a lot of video games in the 1980s and 1990s until WCW went out of business in 2001.
WWE 2K22 and WWF WrestleMania were released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America and Europe in 1989. An interesting TikTok video shows how the two games have changed over the years. It used two wrestling legends to show how far games have come in the last 33 years.
In the video, the player compares Hulk Hogan and Ted DiBiase. The Hulkster kicked DiBiase to the ground because of the limited moves and mobility in WWF WrestleMania. In WWE 2K22, the player uses Hogan’s iconic Leg Drop finisher before winning the match by pinfall.
WrestleMania only has six Superstars to choose from: Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage are both “Macho Man”. Ted DiBiase and Bam Bam Bigelow are both “Million Dollar Man.”
The Honky Tonk Man is also “Macho Man.” This isn’t very many compared to the huge roster of over 120 Superstars and Legends in WWE 2K22. There will also be five WWE 2K22 DLC Packs in the coming months that will add 28 more Superstars and Legends to the game.
It’s interesting to see games like this compared to each other because it shows how far gaming has come in a short amount of time. In some cases, video games have gone from 8-bit and 16-bit. Mostly 2D games, to fully 3D worlds that are getting close to photorealism.
Over the last 35 years, WWE has licensed more than 60 video games. Most of the games are arcade or simulation-style wrestling games, like the Smackdown vs.
Raw series, WWF No Mercy, and the Mortal Kombat-style In Your House game, but WWE has also had its Superstars appear in a Twisted Metal-style game called Crush Hour, and even a pinball game.
WWE 2K22 is now available on PC through Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. It is also available on Xbox 360.
