Bidness Gaming: WWE wrestling games went through several transitions, but in the end we saw it all end in a count-out!
Thq and AKI stopped making the games. The N64 games were the best
couldn't agree more, think it was No Mercy which i liked the best, although I remember the WCW NWO game being very good also. In its current carnation it will never top the N64 games
WWE 12 was the last good wrestling game.
I'll tell you where they went right. WWE All-Stars freakin' rules.
You can obviously tell they got lazy.
IMO the story aspects became the worst. the universe mode isn't as good as the GM mode(imo) commentary is really bad enemy ai isn't good neither is hit detection instead of putting effort into single player story all we have gotten are past glory moments. i mean we are basically watching replays of old matches i am surprised we didn't get a true wwe vs wcw game the one wwe game few years ago with wcw story line was good(i had fun with story mode atleast) here comes the pain shut your mouth day of reckoning no mercy are some of the best wwe wrestling games
all these years and no real ragdoll physics to make selling moves look different either. 2k15 and 16 have like halfassed ragdoll.
It's funny how you mentioned modern games problem being story related. But then mentioned here comes the pain shut your mouth day of reckoning no mercy HCTP, SYM and No Mercy was cherished by its gameplay. Its seems alot of people these days are more interested in stories in videogames then the actual game. Gameplay should be number 1.
wwe 2k14 was the last great release gameplay wise. wwe 2k16 still has the annoying chain grappling.
nevin1 they could have a bad story but still a original story. these past wwe games have moments from past like 30 years of wrestlemania and attitude era i rather just get original stories and that's just my personal opinion
