Let's be honest here, many of you are going to upgrade every year regardless of what is added or changed. For those of you that look for major changes before jumping on board, I do think this year's changes on PS4/PS3 are well worth the purchase
Overall the improvements to 2K16 cannot be ignored. The gameplay is better than it's ever been, the presentation is fantastic and the expansions to My League and My GM are very welcome. For someone like me however, for whom My Career is consistently the biggest draw, it's hard to not be disappointed. My hope is that next year 2K addresses my concerns in this area and finally delivers what I would consider the perfect hoops game.
Unfortunately, if you want to play those games online you'll inevitably hit a brick wall. If your plan is to play mostly offline you'll find a lot to love here. Hopefully 2K will quickly iron out their issues and give this game the infrastructure its gameplay deserves.
For now, this year's game fits solidly in the upper mid-card and I have an appreciation for where they come from compared to where they are now, and hope that next year they'll put the pieces together to really make something special. Which, honestly, feels about like watching the actual product around this time every year.
Any wrestling fan could name off a dozen guys who seemingly had the base necessary for a successful career; people who had the right look, moves and talent, but just couldn't put it all together. WWE 2K15 is a solid foundation that can be built on for the future.
