World Wrestling Entertainment (or WWE) 2015 does not feel like wrestling at all. However, the 2k16 is somewhat better, though it doesn’t improve the game series as a whole. Having a huge roster, lots of selection modes, match types and solid gameplays, though looking awesome, are somewhat disregarded because of the glitch mess (plus more) it contained for at least a decade. Sad to say, most gamers think that unlike Smack Down, this was still far from a wrestling game.
WWE 2K16 contains an appealing roster that features 120 wrestling superstars and divas, including most current stars and bunch of wrestling legends (Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant characters are unlockable, perhaps). However, it’s a sad thing to notice that the ever-famous Trish Stratus, Lita and loads of RVD, WCW and ECW guys are somehow missing. The included legends, as an addition, are somewhat lame.
The Create-A-Wrestler feature, however, is the best feature up-to-date. Not only can you create wrestlers; the Divas (a feature that was foolishly removed last year) are also back. The only difference is that you have to use the new morphing system, instead of the traditional parts and features set, in order for you to create your own desired face. Though somewhat harder, the resulting faces from this new system looks significantly better than the previous CAWs so it’s worth learning. You can also create custom arenas, move sets, entrances and belts that will surely spice-up your WWE 2k16 gaming experience.
The traditional 2K Showcase mode this year focuses on the Texas Rattlesnake, Stone Cold Steve Austin. By playing, you can follow his career from being King of the Ring all throughout his retirement. This also covers his feud with Mr. McMahon and WrestleMania matches with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson himself.
The game, as of this date, is available for online purchase in Sony Playstation store at the price of $44.99 (at a limited time only).
