Great wrestling title, although filled with flaws!

if you're like me then you have played WWE '12 and Smackdown VS. RAW 2011 and so on and so fourth...
I was excited to see this title featured the Attitude era of WWE, being a hardcore wrestling fan they did a great job with the mode, although it is short.
some other minor things have been added as well, including OMG moments and as well as a upgraded Universe.
That being said... this suffers from numerous glitches including no sound in story designer mode. The crowd goes completely dead during you're matches and there is no pyro sound or effects at all. This was the huge reason I gave it a 8 instead of 9 or 10. Because overall it's a better game than WWE '12. Universe mode also will not let you change the attire of your superstars. So frustrations do take a course. Especially if you like story designer mode.
All that being said, with one of the most impressive rosters and DLC to date, WWE '13 does manage a great experience. THQ's last wrestling game will surely not be forgotten.

In terms of gameplay it's really a copy of WWE 12' [exluding new moves]. Creation Modes mostly the same. What makes this game different is the Attitude Era mode which i thought was a great substitute for RTRM which i wasn't a big fan of. Alot of classic Attitude Era superstars , arenas , belts etc. to unlock. It really appeals to the older demographic of fans compared to previous WWE/SvR titles .. although most older fans probably disagreed with the decision to make John Cena the highest rated superstar. Attitude Era Mode was great & I enjoyed it. Aside from the Attitude Era mode I thought WWE 13' was pretty mediocre , much like it's predecessors. I Was once again disappointed with the laggy online gameplay whenever theres more than 4 people in a session... still alot of bugs , glitches & freezes to help online cheaters. Community Creations was a complete disaster , taking to long to load and even freezing at times. But aside from the online negatives i enjoyed WWE 13' & it's always fun exibition gameplay and alot of characters to choose from. DLC's were alright & overall WWE 13' was a great game [although online improvements must be made in future titles] I gave it a 7/10.
Good game but the replays make no sense at all. Whenever I play the game and win a match. The match highlights are of some of the worst points in the match. UFC 2013 has good match highlights. This game just does not. Maybe the new one will improve that.
