I just remembered Mafia III. Beautiful game, great story, stunning setting... completely let down my repetitive gameplay. I completed it purely because I was so invested in the story but it was such a slog.
All of the WWE2K games, to me, are flawed. I've played two of them and they both look nice and very WWE-y but it just feels like random block/counter button smashes and set pieces. There is no flow to the matches at all.
