What was the best WWE SVR/2K title in the series?

We know everybody thinks N64's No Mercy and Smackdown's HCTP stand the test of time in WWE game history but what about the secondary titles specifically in the SVR and 2K series?

I'd have 2K14 for the current crop and 2006/2010 for the classic SVR releases.

Thoughts?

SVR07 is the best of the SVR series. The 2K series just flat out sucks. If I had to pick, I would say 2k14, but back then it was pretty much the same game as from when THQ was making it with just 2k slapped on the title.

SVR 07 for me, the GM mode was the best thing Ive played in the whole series tbh plus the graphics, gameplay and soundtrack was memorable. I loved that aspect of booking shows, competing for ratings.

the roster got abit too thin on SVR 08 to make the GM work as well.

wouldnt it be incredible if they created a monday night wars mode that was essentially GM mode but with WWF vs WCW? would never happen due to the roster requirements and the fact that wwe wouldnt want you picking WCW to beat them. Would be a whole game in itself though. Id buy it.

I really need to go and have a nostalgia trip on the soundtrack for SVR 07, some great songs on there.

SD Vs Raw 06 was the last genuinely great wwe game imo.

Re: What was the best WWE SVR/2K title in the series?

For the SVR series, I have to go with SVR 06 easily. The roster, unlockables, gameplay, stamina system, momentum system, mini-games, double-KO in matches, GM Mode, Season Mode, and the graphics were amazing for the time and a huge step up from the previous year. Also the included Buried Alive match was just awesome at the time and one of the most played match types of mine. I also really liked the black and white slow-mo effect that would happen before you hit a finisher, it was really cool.

The second pick would be 2K14, now that was a damn good game. Everyone knows why it was so good so I don't even need to explain its credentials here.

Honestly for the 2K series, they have yet to make an amazing game that comes close to the old days for me. A 'instant classic' wrestling game just doesn't seem possible for them.

I put the most hours into 2007 so that gets my vote

There actually is no "best" 2k game because they are all poorly made and mediocre.

SvR 2007 was the last great wrestling game, SvR 2008 was pretty good as well but after that it pretty much went downhill as far as gameplay goes.
