TK: Being a long-time wrestling fan, I was super excited to play ‘WWE 2K15’ on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, I was so upset with the half-assed job done on the latest edition, considering it is the first from the franchise on the PS4.
I felt the same. Really bummed out with all the stuff they took out. It looks great but thats all there is to it. All style but no substance :(
It's a clunky game. One worser controlled games I've ever played. You about 75% slower than the wrestlers on TV.
"One *worser* controlled games"... Come on. "Worser"? Smh....
With the reviews and stuff they took out I decided not to buy it and it was on my list. The3 dlc 's have better characters so it feels like a ripoff
Path of the Warrior seems to be the best of the showcase dlc, still dont see why the season pass isnt a full one as it was in previous years.
My son preordered it, and we both tried it and were very disappointed with it. He sold it back to best buy as used and got just about full price back. Still...worst game you've ever played? Gotta love hyperbole.
have to agree, also the career mode is terrible, once you win the belt it ends, you don't get to defend it.
It's definitely a poor game, but to say it's the worst game ever is ridiculous hyperbole.I can think of dozens of games which make 2k15 look like a masterpiece.
You sir have not played nearly enough games. Here's a short list of games that are worse: Hour of Victory Turning Point Vampire Rain Bullet Witch Legendary Ride to Hell: Retribution Superman 64 Greys Anatomy: The Video Game Hulk Hogan's Main Event WCW Backstage Assault Walking Dead Survival Instinct Etc...etc...etc
Oh please. Because they take things out it's suddenly the worst ever? So you'd rather have WWE 2K14 all over again play the PS3 version then. It's the same damn game as always with all of the crappy create modes you want still in. This game is an overhaul of gameplay and creation tools and it is brilliant in that regard. I swear it feels like people haven't even touched the game, just read the reviews and assume it sucks because of things they took out. How about we judge the game, not on what they took out, but with what's available instead? The gameplay is phenomenal, it makes you feel like you're actually having a real match. The pacing is on point and it just feels bad ass and awesome to feel like you're actually recreating a WWE match in the game. No other wrestling game comes close to it.
the pacing would be fine if they didnt overhaul the controls too much..thats the problem..they fixed something that wasnt broken. i am a huge fan of the series, but still its a major let down. the things missing added to the overall experience. all that stuff was reasons I would shell out 60 bucks for each year and even eventually the season pass. but its not worth it this time. its a decent rental at most. Poor effort considering its on the current-gen consoles. in comparison FIFA 14 and 15 were remarkable improvements on the PS4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately WWE 2K15 doesnt even come close to 2K14 either.
I agree. People need to stop comparing it to previous titles because all everyone would complain about is how the games were the same year after year. Some sacrifices were made in this version because of the transistion but the game plays so much better on next gen consoles that it makes up for it. In the future when they stop having to support last gen I'm certain the games will get all those modes and do it better.
I completely agree Ken85. They are going to add those modes back in, or even better modes in place of those, and it'll be all the better for it. They are making these games for the future as well, not just for 2K15 and that's it. People always want everything in one sitting, that's not how this works. They didn't buy the game license for one year only, so why would they just stuff everything into one game when they have time to branch out and do it with care and time?
They didn't overhaul the controls too much. It's still the same. What about it changed drastically? You have to hold down the grapple button this time? That's about it. The things missing were broken and needs an overhaul, that's not hard to understand. You can't compare a FIFA game to a wrestling game, it's not remotely the same. Look at the transition of NBA 2K14 to PS4 from the PS3 version, things were missing and it was more bare bones. NBA 2K15 was a drastic improvement over 2K14 on PS4. This will be the same way, this was a transition from all of the broken shitty gameplay and create modes that were in the game piling up for years and years with glitches galore. If you had fun with all of that, that's fine. But it's hard to say that this game is a bad game when there's so much fun to be had with the actual gameplay itself. You know, the MAIN reason we buy games in the first place? All of the bells and whistles are great, but if you don't have a great game at your base, it's going to suck no matter what. They had to make a decision and get rid of things that didn't work. They didn't have a whole lot of time to give you the exact same experience you had before. But the changes and overhauls they are doing is going to make the series a lot better moving forward. That's what this is all about, after all. People seem to want the exact same game over and over again and complain when they get it. Then they complain when they get something new too because...lo and behold, it doesn't have the same old garbage from the older games. That's the problem here, people aren't wanting to be patient and realize that they are doing things to help the series going forward, people just want what they want and want it now.
so what was wrong with create a arena and create a storyline to be taken out? The creations suites is one of the big reasons I always went back to the games for repeat plays. I dont see your point what was removed was actually broken. the gameplay while realistic is dumbed down by the chain move mechanics which frankly are annoying.
You don't have to use the chain moves, you know? You can disable them in the options menu. What was wrong with Create An Arena and Storyline? Well, firstly, they were still in their basic form after 3 years and 4 years, respectively. They never grew much more from inception. Furthermore, they had a lot of glitches that needed to be handled, I'm not one of the ones that used those modes, you are, so you tell me which glitches did you see? This is coming from the feedback that they asked us about last summer, by the way.
