Still searching for the perfect Christmas present for those hard to buy people in your life? I certainly am, after all there’s only so many time I want to purchase socks and PJ bottoms for Mr Glam & Geeky. My son Chase though is one of the hardest to buy for. Given his physical disabilities regular toys can be frustrating for him so we’re always on the look out for games that he would love to play with his accessible games set up.
We were lucky enough to be sent a copy of both WWE 2K18 and NBA 2K18 Games from the lovely people over at 2K games. Read on to see what we loved about the games and find out how you can win a copy of both games for yourself!
The latest addition in the WWE games franchise WWE 2K18 is a huge amount of fun to play! With the ability to play a huge number of modes from your regular single player where you make your own WWE superstar, and fight your way through WWE events to get to the main event at Wrestlemania to playing online. Online modes allow playing against your friends or matchmaking against other online players, in several versions of gameplay. There’s upgraded graphics, the ability to play 8-man matches, loads of new animations and quite possibly the most customisable WWE playing experience using the creation suite.
My husband enjoyed playing WWE 2K18 and my son found it hilarious to watch. Chase found it exciting to watch the wrestlers picking each other up and throwing them around the ring. It’s worth noting that WWE 2K18 has a PEGI rating of 16 due to the nature of wrestling. We allowed Chase to watch a match (he watches real life WWE) and then let him help create his own wrestler. Check out Chase’s wrestler below!
Seeing his own character play through the main career mode made Chase feel more involved in the game. The ability to create not just characters but also design rings means that even when you’ve had enough of wrestling there’s plenty of other avenues of gameplay that really make WWE 2K18’s playability stand out. You will need quick reflexes to master the ring, so if someone if your family thrives on fast paced games, then this would make a great game for them.
NBA 2K18 is a basketball simulation game based on the very well-known NBA. You can play in My Player career mode and make your way through NBA games whilst upgrading your player and getting endorsements or opt for ‘My Team’ mode. In My Team mode you collect and compete with legends of NBA both from previous and current player pools. As expected there’s an online mode for playing head to head with other real life players instead of the AI. A nice touch to the online experience means you’re no longer selecting modes of a menu. Instead you’re player is placed in an open environment that allows you to freely explore, find matches or even compete in trivia questions.
My son enjoyed playing alongisde my husband play, you can play it at a basic level but for the best gameplay experience we found this game was suited to a more experienced gamer such as older children – or in this case my husband! The authenticity of this game was quite simply amazing. Small details such the various players handling differently made gameplay feel incredibly realistic. My husband really enjoyed sitting down of an evening and being able to play a couple of games. Micro transactions do exist within the game however my husband found he had an exciting and enjoyable game play without feeling he had to make purchases to further his enjoyment of the game. For full on basketball NBA fans this feature opens up a very cool opportunity to create your dream team.
