    WWE 2K15 makes its debut in the next gen with a notable game. Controls have been fully redesigned in order to offer the best gameplay mechanics, and its visuals are mainly what you would expect.

    WWE 2K15 is a good debut in this new generation, with accessible and fun gameplay, some interesting modes and improved visuals, but it is still below 2K14 in roster, creation options and modes.

    WWE 2K15 on new-gen consoles is like a Raw talent with an already high definition who needs a harder workout to increase his muscle mass, wrestler roster and MyCareer contents.

    WWE 2K15 gains a good graphical improvement cutting many interesting modes from the previous chapters of the franchise. The slow gameplay, long loading times and unresponsive controls are big issues which ruin a potentially good gameplay.

    WWE 2K15 shows great wrestling sports with awesome looking wrestling stars. But it is such a pity there are not many wrestlers to choose from and the gameplay feels very slow because of the addition of endurance. WWE is all about spectacle and those things sure keep this game away from being spectacular.

    Graphically assured as it is, almost every other element of the 15-year-old series has been cut back, tampered with pointlessly or outright ruined. The series hasn't been good for a long time now, but this year is the first it's been actively bad. The wait for a great new WWE game continues.

    This is a new game that they built on a new engine from the ground up. I expected that a lot of things would be cut out. Think of this game asThis is a new game that they built on a new engine from the ground up. I expected that a lot of things would be cut out. Think of this game as the foundation of WWE games on the new consoles. The game play itself in this game is miles ahead of 2K14 and 2K15 on last gen consoles. You can feel the heavier hits, the more realistic pace, and watch the stamina system really take control of a match. Matches closer represent what you would see on Monday Night Raw due to the stamina and slow, not arcade like, pace. The showcase mode gets the job done, it focuses on two of the best rivalries in WWE history, and is objective based so I can unlock things, great. My career is pretty good now, but it will only receive more work and polish as this is the foundation for the future. This came accomplished way more than I wanted it to... remember SVR 2008: At least it's not that bad. Expect that now that the engine is done, for them to do a slight graphical update for 2K16, but really focus on creation, universe, and my career. Now that WWE 2K15 has made an awesome foundation, expect 2K16 to be the game of the ages. Expand

    with "here comes the pain" this is my absolute wwe game of all time. i can not understand all the bad reviews. everyone who loves wrestlingwith "here comes the pain" this is my absolute wwe game of all time. i can not understand all the bad reviews. everyone who loves wrestling will love this game! i have never experienced a more authentic wrestling game. i would give this game a nine out of ten because they cut of a lot of creation content wich i enjoyed in the past releases. but as much as i loved creation, the presentation and gameplay of this years game makes me forget about it. i have been waiting for major changes to gameplay and graphics like this for years and finaly it is here, definetly a big step in de wright direction! i am giving this game a ten because of all the bad reviews it got. people, if you want to play a beat em up, play tekken or street fighter. this is a sports game and yes it is slow paced at the end of matches and yes they prioritised the graphics over content, but still they created a awesome expirience! another point other reviewers made was that the roster is small. first the roster is still big and second they included a lot of old stars like flair, booker t and nash. why dp people espect that they put every freaking legend in this game? its like putting every fighter in in the ufc game who ever had success in the sport! its ridicolous! i could write more and more about how much attention to detail 2k put in this game, nearly every time i play am match it puts a smile on my face because the wrestlers climb the ropes exhausted or they roll onto position when when i want to do a diving move.
    AWESOME WORk 2K! please keep evolving the game on this new foundation despite the bad reviews! and this is coming from a both a fan and active wrestler!

Sure the graphics may be great, but that doesn't stop this game from being such a mess. The reduced game modes, matches, and wrestlers makes this game feel like nothing more than average. The MyCareer was too repetitive and didn't feel like the career you'd hope you'd experience. At least the new animations and realism adds some positive thought to this game. Still waiting for that great next-gen wrestling game. Expand

An example of this is the stunning and beautiful graphics, the fun and enjoyable showcase mode or its most realistic wrestling to date. While these are steps forward for the WWE games it also has many disappointing areas to them, these include the weak customisation, same old bad commentary that has been present for years, lack of match types, TERRIBLE online play and its biggest offence MyCareer. This was the mode everyone was really excited and hyped for and it turned out to be a huge disappointment with boring easy matches with no story behind them, and pointless match after pointless match (very similar to current dat WWE) with no payoff at the end with an out of nowhere and terrible ending to a big disappointment of a mode, that leaves a sour taste in your mouth after you get through the 15 hour plus boring grind feast that is this mode.

    In conclusion this game looks and feels great, but with a lack of content around this, it doesn't do enough and will leave you wanting a more fleshed out and better game. Overall it lays the foundation for a great WWE game, but still has a way to go before that is a reality.

    I cannot name my character.
    That is how this review needs to start, because the spit's worth of options 2K gave the players is that utterly pathetic.

    Great graphics, horrid options.

    CAW:
    The load times are unforgiveable.
    The lack of options is supremely unforgiveable.
    And, to top it off, I cannot name my character. I. Cannot. Name. My. Character. What the ---- is that?

    Where are my editing and camera controls?! I can no longer create a dynamic match experience to share? Instead, it's plop the Share button and find static footage that isn't worth watching?

    The MyCareer starts with a storyline loss, after the computer ignores my settings? Fail harder, 2K. Fail harder. Oh wait, they did. Choppy controls a dozen minigames interfering in my gameplay is not what I expect in a wrestling title.

    I'm ashamed I wistfully bought into this, and it only gets a 3 because they finally did some great work on the actual roster. Shame about my CAW being a lumpy, undefined git, much like the game itself.

    Is this the best you can do 2K, seriously? The amount of problems this game has are too numerous to count, so I'll just highlight a fewIs this the best you can do 2K, seriously? The amount of problems this game has are too numerous to count, so I'll just highlight a few problems.

    Firstly, why do ALL the women in this game look utterly stupid? What's going on with the hair? Why does Summer Rae look like a deformed mannequin, for instance? Not only that, why do half the wrestlers look absolutely nothing like they are supposed to - CM Punk looks like some random Italian guy, for example? This is next gen? Really?

    Secondly, career mode. How quick did it take you to shat out that garbage 2K? It makes zero sense. You can have a four and a half star match, lose narrowly, then have Vickie Guerrero say that that match was dreadful. That's just one contradiction - the whole thing is full of them. Do it bloody properly or don't do it at all.

    Third - it's now 2015, and we have to manually change title holders, as far as I can tell? WHY?! Why on earth isn't an option to regularly patch the game up to the current roster, heel/face changes, title holders, theme musics and more? In fact, this is such a glaring omission I'm not sure if I'm just outright missing where it is?

    Fourth, why is this game an utterly stripped down version of 2k13 and 2k14? Why have you taken multiple steps backwards in presentation, gameplay and options? Why am I stuck with crap generic pop songs as the background music instead of the theme songs? Why do rope breaks happen at random? Why is the tag team mode utterly broken if you play single player, to the point where the AI will NEVER tag you in? Finally, WHY ARE YOU CHARGING MONEY FOR THIS GAME!

    FFS 2k, get a damn grip of yourselves. This is a joke of a title, and it disrespects wrestling fans at every turn by treating them like absolute idiots. Give up the licence you clowns.
