11. SmackDown vs Raw 2007

Kicking off our list is SmackDown Vs. Raw 2007, a title that marked a significant leap forward for the franchise.

9. WWE 2K19

WWE 2K19 represented a high point for the franchise, offering polished gameplay and an engaging single-player experience. The addition of the 2K Showcase mode, focusing on the career of Daniel Bryan, provided fans with a compelling journey through one of WWE’s most beloved superstars.

8. WWE 2K22

After a hiatus in 2021, WWE 2K22 had big shoes to fill, following the disappointing reception of its predecessor. Thankfully, the game delivered, with improved visuals, enhanced gameplay, and a renewed focus on fan-favorite modes like Universe and GM Mode.

6. SmackDown vs Raw 2011

5. WWE 2k23

The WWE 2k23 is the most recent game in WWE. It’s undeniably the most visually stunning wrestling game ever created, with unmatched attention to detail. There are several methods to counter and reverse moves in this responsive and fluid gaming style.

Although a huge improvement, the AI occasionally behaves strangely with some wrestlers. Furthermore, it still seems as though the AI determines when the human player is done, which makes it nearly hard to escape some pinning situations.

2. WWF No Mercy

Released during the height of the Attitude Era, WWF No Mercy captured the spirit of WWE’s most iconic period with its intense gameplay and diverse game modes.
