First off I didn't play through the whole game. I didn't get much past the setup so I wont go into unlockables or gameplay.
I think the whole WWE game franchise took a massive downturn. It's sad because the potential of the games are pretty entertaining. Back in the games that are say.. pre 2009 you got an original storyline you could run your character through complete with voice acting. The VERY in depth character creation mode is a blast then you could get a full on full blown create an entrance. You could create yourself annd your friends with your own intro music and your own entrance pyro and for a little while be a WWE superstar with rivalries and goals.
You can still go to own on a full on detailed character creations. Which to me is almost more fun than playing the game. But the moves have been dumbed down. There isn't as big a list as there used to be. (I got frustrated and gave up before even seeing if there was a create a finisher function.) The create an entrance is... not there. Before you would first choose a camera angle, you'd choose the cinimatic, you'd choose what your character was doing entering the ring. Then you'd trigger pyro... then do it ALL over again going down the ramp and so on.
In 2K15 all there is that isn't an entrance from just another wrestler is... answering your cell phone. THat's where they lost me.
The other one, which I imagine isn't such a big deal for most people, is the lack of instant replay during a match. You could pause a game and move the camera around to catch different angles of a move and sometimes what you would just find was HYSTERICAL! Hat's where we had the most fun as a group with friends and I. "HOLY SHIT! Pause that! I wanna see that again! Let's do it from this angle! I SHALL CALL THIS... THE FLYING TEABAG!" and some moves just looked funny as hell... complete with realistic facial animations. With that gone... all there is for me is the create a wrestler mode. I didn't even PLAY as any of 'em. I let the omputer do a Ryback vs Brock Lesnar.
story wise there is nothing at all. It's all just reliving matches that already happened. You play as a wrestler during a key match of thier career an RECREATE IT! That's what DVDs are for. They added NXT which... is weak as shit to me. I want my original create a wrestler story mode again.
The X Box ONe and PS4 versons come out tomorrow. I might rent the X Box One version and see... GTA 5 on PS3 and X Box 360 are not full versions. THere's a lot that is added to the new consoles. Maybe the new WWE games will have more substance to it. But right now it's just a VERY watered down version of what it used to be.
Anyone know if anything I miss is just unlockable or sommething?
