From the article:
"EA Sports have announced that they're going to announce a new game in January, but won't tell us what just yet. Rumor has it that this new ventures. will be professional wrestling once again. More specifically they could be taking on the WWE brand when THQ's license runs out at the end of 2009."

If this happens, Dark Sniper prays to the gaming gods above that EA licenses AKI to develop the game. Only they were able to capture a fun and true gameplay experience inside the squared circle.

May also be the new TNA game as they are looking for someone to publish their next game. I do hope its for the new WWE game as long as they handle it right. And i'm not really a fan of TNA, longtime WWE fan.

GM Mode is one feature that definitely needs to return to the current WWE wrestling games especially given the brand split between Raw and Smackdown. 2K has plenty of other classic wrestling games to look to for ideas but the question of whether or not they will make changes still remains unanswered.

SwiffEpics1947d ago

I really miss GM mode. Smackdown 1 and 2 are my all time favourites though. Probably because of nostalgia of the wrestlers in those games.

sagesurge1947d ago

Man, the awesomeness that is No Mercy needs to grace our remastered presence

ZeekQuattro1947d ago

Big fan of World Tour and Revenge. Day of Reckoning was also another stellar one as it played a lot like the N64 games and had a great CAW mode. I made some wild creations in that game.

N64 had the most legendary wrestling games.

Thq and AKI stopped making the games. The N64 games were the best

fad6322797d ago

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

3-4-52796d ago

WWE 12 was the last good wrestling game.

WeAreLegion2797d ago

I'll tell you where they went right. WWE All-Stars freakin' rules.

Ruggadagod2797d ago

You can obviously tell they got lazy.

showtimefolks2797d ago (Edited 2797d ago )

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

vanity292797d ago

all these years and no real ragdoll physics to make selling moves look different either. 2k15 and 16 have like halfassed ragdoll.

nevin12797d ago

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.

roxette922796d ago

wwe 2k14 was the last great release gameplay wise. wwe 2k16 still has the annoying chain grappling.

showtimefolks2796d ago


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

Good comparison, they've got worse with age.

Thrillho3237d ago

Many of the old animations look better than the new ones especially the Sweet Chin Music and Goldberg's spear. The 2K14 Clothesline from Hell looks awesome though.
