Most hardcore WWE fans probably know the backstory behind WWE 2k15. The majority of fans hoped with 2K Sports playing ball, the franchise might undergo a revolutionary overhaul with improved character models, more fluid animation and solid voice acting. Unfortunately, 2K Sports put on deaf ears and blinders as they brought in Visual Concepts to polish up certain aspects and deal the game a nice face lift. That left it with unresolved faults, however. For example, we have a game with graphics that draw gamers in, but all the complaints of WWE 2k14 continue to irritate gamers into 2k15. Fans expected more and WWE 2k15 inevitably dropped the ball on everyone's expectations.
The new installment does get a couple things right with the gameplay. For example, you have twists and turns that could refine future gameplay. The grappling mechanics of the game play like a rock-paper-scissors mini game. It does build the tension to a new level, and it looks great when playing.
Overall, 2K Sports did a lazy job of changing the mechanics. Nothing overly revolutionary has been set forward in this game, and you have the same strike, counter and precise grapple mechanics found in the last game. It demands more patient timing, but the mechanics look professional when facing head-to-head combat against single opponents. You can build momentum and dictate the pace of the match. WWE 2k15 Story Creator mode was cut from this title, and the hands-on approach to creating your own wrestlers will be dearly missed. Hopefully in 2k16, 2K Sports will pay more attention to their wrestling fan base.
