IRB Gamer: "Alright, it’s time to discuss yet again the one true title you’ll find me pouring more hours into than Call of Duty. Yep, It's WWE. And now with the title in the hands of 2K Sports, my heart can only wonder where will we go from here."
Its doubtful since Yukes is still the developer
I only got WWE13 because of the old school wrestlers, I don't follow WWE anymore, only between 90-2001. I don't expect 14 to sell as well. I might look into a PS4 WWE game in the future tho.
if only they could make it as good as the n64 wrestling games then maybe they would have a winner.
You'd think after reading your comment that developers would understand how correct you are. What you have stated is the number 1 reason the WWE games don't live up no matter how real it looks, a wrestling game is about gameplay first, where the heck is AKI anyway and are they that expensive for a publisher to hire??
No Mercy N64, was so good.
the wcw vs nwo games where great also. even the royal rumble game on dreamcast was closer to n64 the they have been in years. and why can I still not have a royal rumble that includes all 30 men in the ring at once?
Day of Reckoning was chaotically fun
You're right. Graphics aren't EVERYTHING these days. I mean I think visually, WWE games look pretty decent but I'd take No Mercy with an updated roster ANY day over any current WWE game. The gameplay was about as solid as you can get. They try so hard for simulation now but in doing so they lose focus on what makes wrestling games truly fun and enjoyable.
I loved wwe 13 so im excited to see wwe2k14. you people whine too much, there was little wrong with 13 other than no backstage still. if they put more effort into the arenas then the would be gold
Its because the N64 WWF/WCW games were much better gameplay wise
they did nothing that the new ones dont other than no mercy which had the backstage arenas. customization is way better, the gameplay is just as fluid now as it was then, still have weapons, all sorts of match types, etc. i played them all and i still play the new ones today. backstage arenas is the biggest difference
They where better story and content wise as well. The restrictions current wrestling games impose on you is just stupid. So what if I want to beat the game as a Diva. It's not like anyone thinks a Diva can actually beat the Undertaker. The modern wrestling games are more concerned about image and a lot less about fun. The same thing is true about modern day wrestling. I still like wrestling somewhat, but it is a shame when the best matches are by wrestlers like the Undertaker. The WWE has all this young talent and they just let it rot. I like the Rock, but he isn't going to be around long-term.
The gameplay may be fluid but not technically easy to pick up and play as the AKI games. It was easy for a beginner and was superb to try to master, they never got old and the presentation was fluid and so damn cool at the time
@Captain I respectfully disagree. The reason the AKI n64 games were so good was because of consistency. There was a fighting engine that rivaled the balance of any fighting game. The new games have sloppy controls and even worse physics. The N64 AKI grapplers had tight controls and the game worked as it was supposed to EVERY TIME.
People do complain alot and just like last year i said if people sat in the seat of the developers they would pribably understand why there is certain things missing in the games i mean every year people ask for more but the developers can only do so much. All i wamt is an up to date roster and maybe a few old heads from wwe 13 haha. Stop having us in the dark 2k we wanna know what your working on?
Personally, the only thing I am concerned about these yearly wwe releases are the old rosters and you have to pay for lame dlc wrestlers. By having 2k take the license, they should have free updated rosters every few months like they have with the NBA games
