    This game is quite good, maybe the graphics have not changed much, but the graphics do not justify the game itself. The Showcase is quiteThis game is quite good, maybe the graphics have not changed much, but the graphics do not justify the game itself. The Showcase is quite entertaining and all possible characters that can create open a world of ideas. The online mode is decent enough for a game of this franchise. The great improvement that occurred since the failure of 2K15 shows. Expand

    I Have bought my final WWE game
    the graphics have not changed since WWE 12
    almost everything promoted is not in the game (GM Mode, My Career Mode, Create a Show Mode)
    all of the creation suite is still the same as WWE 2K15 (even the logos you can add on your characters)
    the only reason I give this game a 3 is because of the large roster and the WrestleMania 31 arena the rest is a bunch of garbage. 3/10

    UPDATE: Still garbage but adding back the custom music wins 2 points in my heart.

    Last-generation console owners have been left behind in a big way. This game is virtually identical to last year's steaming pile of garbage.Last-generation console owners have been left behind in a big way. This game is virtually identical to last year's steaming pile of garbage. The roster, although much larger than last year's offering, features many notable omissions -- such as The Four Horsewomen, The Dudley Boys, Braun Strowman, and the recently reacquired Alberto Del Rio. None of these stars will be available as DLC.

    The control scheme -- which was reworked on current-gen consoles -- remains exactly the same on PS3. No interrupting entrances, same 'Breaking Point' submission mini-game, still able to reverse unlimited moves per match...all of these have been changed in PS4. Also lacking is the MyCareer mode.

    The graphics are the same. The commentary is still boring. The collision detection issues from year's past are still present. If 2K is going to charge $60 for both versions of the game (PS3 vs PS4), then people should expect the same game -- not a watered down version.

    As a stand alone game, it's not terrible. The larger roster is nice. All the usual match types are there. However, for people expecting leaps forward over last year's title -- sorry to say you'll likely be disappointed.

    when I got interested in wwe games I bought wwe12 and then I started to look at wwe2k16 knowing there was mycareer and knew things and betterwhen I got interested in wwe games I bought wwe12 and then I started to look at wwe2k16 knowing there was mycareer and knew things and better graphics. When I bought it I was so excited, when I played it I thought why isn't the graphics better and the new pinning and submission controls different. I thought those things were only on mycareer mode so I looked for mycareer mode and it wasn't there. I did some research and because I had a ps3 not a ps4 or xbox one it was totally changed. I thought that every game was the same on every console but it was a big scam. And the worst thing was that the ps3 version (the awful one) cost $80 while the ps4 and xbox one version (the better one) costed $54. I think it was a big rip off. the only good parts were the roster and the showcase. I rate this a 4. Expand
