A bigger roster, more finely-tuned gameplay mechanics and a more versatile creation system help make WWE 2K16 the current-gen superstar that it wants to be, even if some inconsistent ideas and bugs do hold it back from time to time.
Due to last years’ visual overhaul, these wrestlers continue to look better than ever. Unfortunately, WWE’s gameplay hasn’t made the same strides as its graphics. Reliving Steve Austin’s career will likely appeal to a lot of wrestling fans, but it’s more fun to watch than to play.
played this game for a few hours (ps4) found the game play very clunky and the submission system very awful, graphics are pretty bad for a new generation game, universe mode is also the worst i've seen in any game so far. only good thing about this game is the big roster otherwise it's just as bad as wwe2k15
When WWE 2K14 came out I was completely stoked. Something new and different from the THQ garbage that we were used to.
Sadly it appears that 2K thinks that it's more important to take things out of the game e.g being able to edit match rules like 2K14; create a finisher. Now on 2K16 the only editing I can do for a match is if I want to be able to turn the entrances on or off. Gee, thanks.
Another thing is that the games are less fun. Remember when you could have a stable entrance where the three of you came crashing down on a shopping trolley? How funny was that?! Or where you could go round the backstage such as the boiler room/parking lot. Why wouldn't this be ever considered? It's fun! There's only so many times that I can watch Tyler Breeze kick out of my finisher time and time again.
Of course people like the "realistic" gameplay but do the majority of people that might play this game? I have a number of friends who scoffed when they saw me on this and said "it's not being good since enter old WWE game here. Surely being able to lure all audiences is more important than just the die-hard fans that buy the game year in year out.
It seems to me like 2K are more bothered about having something to advertise like the Stone Cold showcase mode rather than the actual game-play. Showcase mode is very boring and very linear in my opinion. It tells you what to do and if you don't do it you get bent over.
Hopefully at least someone manages to read this even though it is a bit long winded. But I could've written a lot more!
tl;dr 2K is taking fun things out rather than adding them in and creating a boring game.
