WWE 2K15 Reviews Summary

Summary: WWE 2K15 has fantastic in-ring work with its fighting mechanics recreating WWE's style. However apart from this, and the Showcase mode which critics agree is a highlight, the game has little else to offer

WWE 2K15 is a kick in the teeth, then. Graphically assured as it is, almost every other element of the 15-year-old series has been cut back, tampered with pointlessly or outright ruined. The series hasn't been good for a long time now, but this year is the first it's been actively bad. The wait for a great new WWE game continues .

WWE 2K15 looks better and hits harder on new-gen, but some key omissions keep it from reaching the main-event.

A capable attempt to recapture the magic of WWE, let down by the decision not to update any single element of the console versions.

A relatively promising next gen debut, but it's still missing lots of older features. And even with a few new ones it's hard to think of this as anything but a work in progress.

The leap to new-gen is more of a stumble for WWE, as it drops elements of existing content and recycles a lot more, giving little feeling of quality.

2K Showcase rivalries are presented well, but can't match the spectacle of last year's Wrestlemania matches. MyCareer needed more time in the oven

WWE 2K15 is prettier, but not much smarter than its predecessors

Although the series' combat has never felt better, WWE 2K15 fails to deliver on the pomp and pageantry of professional wrestling.

The move to more powerful consoles has resulted in a prettier looking wrestling game, but also a far less enjoyable one.

I will be the first to admit that I haven't played a wrestling game in quite some time. My memories of wrestling are of the cheesy but fun antics of Hulk Hogan, Diamond Dallas Page, Mankind, and the sort. To be honest, John Cena's angsty stare, which is plastered wherever the developers could find space for it, irritated me. However, I am certain that no matter how much things have changed, bad gameplay is the same now as it was then, and the questionable design decisions and performance of this game have a bargain-bin feel about them. If you're hankering for some good wrestling times, look elsewhere. This one's down for the count, even if you can play as Sheamus.
