WWE 2K15's debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is good but not perfect: the gameplay is a highly fun simulation experience, but the game doesn't have all the feature depth of past games in the series. It is, however, a good template to build upon for future instalments.
Improved character models are WWE 2K15’s biggest selling point, and they’re definitely a major improvement. Using the same face-scanning technology as 2K’s NBA franchise, the new models look much closer to the actual wrestlers they’re supposed to represent. While this is just a cosmetic improvement, it makes goes toward making PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions feel “next gen.” It’s a welcome change.
WWE 2K15 changes that by adding a MyCareer mode. You make your own wrestler and start from the bottom of the WWE at the NXT training center and fight your way up to the main roster. Competing in matches earns you points that you can use to improve your wrestler and learn abilities, and you always have a milestone to work toward (like winning a new championship belt or trying to earn a spot on the roster of a bigger show). It’s a meaty mode that gives fans the chance to play out the dream of becoming a WWE legend.
Well done 2K!
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 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!
As it stands right now its a solid if unspectacular debut on the new generation of consoles. Who knows though, the wrestling industry is full of people who turned unspectacular debuts into international superstardom.
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 literally the most upset a WWE game has ever looked, and not talking about visuals. 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.
This game is so average that it's just not funny with no superstar threads, no Create-An-Arena, no Create-A-Belt, no story designer, and the fact you can't create a diva is just plain stupid. I wouldn't recommend this unless you're an insane fan or you rented this for 2 bucks.
This had so much promise and could of been brilliant but it fell short by a long way 2K needed to go away and rethink things for WWE 2K16 which thankfully they did. Now the gameplay wasn't terrible but the career mode was awful and getting rid of create a diva just killed it for me now we can't play as some of our favourite TNA knockouts or the four horsewomen that people would of created.
I'm not totally into the 2K bandwagon anytime soon because whatever engine they've done (since acquiring WWE from the demise of THQ in Early 2013) must;ve taken a few steps backward. WWE 2K15 is a hot mess. I thought this was going to be the biggest and most hyped wrestling games ever. Turns out the game was slapped with a Sit-down Powerbomb by Kevin Owens and smash the game with his feet. The next-gen versions kinda ****. The game rushed too quickly when it dropped, no customization features, no create-a-wrestler? That pisses me off, period. And what's with all the bugs? Confusing, yes. Playable, I don't think so. Don't spend your time playing another buggy WWE 2K game unless they fixed properly. Once it's time to shine, how bout putting the NXT rosters as the cover athletes of 2K16, that I would love to see. Sasha Banks and Charlotte were two of my favorite (Naomi and Emma ****).
SummaryFor the first time, guide your custom Superstar through an authentic WWE career in the MyCareer Mode. From NXT to RAW, make your way up to the WWE Championship and live the life of an actual WWE Superstar. By using new motion capture technology, 2K15 includes many more new animations than any previous WWE title. The game also includes a...
