Critic Reviews for WWE 2K16
WWE 2K16 is a true in-ring technician, and its feature set has taken a big step in the right direction.
After last year's disaster, 2K's series bounces back with the best wrestling game in years.
The best WWE game for years, which may seem like faint praise but WWE 2K16 works as both a sports sim and a quality fighter in its own right.
With a huge (and mostly up-to-date) roster, a Stone Cold-obsessed Showcase mode and a fine-tuned MyCareer, the WWE 2K series finally delivers the best wrestling game since Here Comes The Pain.
2K's historical video packages are a great trip down memory lane, but the moment-to-moment action isn't worth remembering
Devoid of the character and personality that makes wrestling fun, WWE 2K16 continues to fail to deliver the spectacle of pro wrestling while further muddling the game's core mechanical experience.
WWE 2K16 improves on the many things wrong with last year's game, but not nearly enough.
With the new limited reversal system and a much higher overall production value, WWE 2K16 is the competent fighter we always knew it could be. The fuller roster and a wealth of creation modes mark this year's installment as a notable comeback for the series. Only the submission system, the occasional glitch, and the some issues with the UI for creation modes hold WWE 2K16 back. Otherwise, WWE 2K16 crushes its predecessor with the impact of a Stone Cold Stunner.
