Will WWE 2K16 Be This Decade's Best Wrestling Game?


Here at Real Men Report, two of our biggest passions are videogames and wrestling. You shouldn't be surprised when I say I love wrestling games. Seriously, I adore them. I've put more than 50 hours into WWE 2K15, and this year's WWE 2K16 (with an October 27, 2015 release date) is looking fantastic. It really feels like 2K and Visual Concepts are building upon the foundation that was laid out last year, adding details that were missing while fixing the ones that affected the experience. Again, remember my judgement is purely based on the trailers and gameplay that has been shown so far. Meaning that my opinions could change for the better, or the worse once the game comes out. With that being said, let's talk about WWE 2K16!


The Good
-  The biggest roster ever, with over 120 unique playable characters!
- Limited amount of reversals. Once you use one, they will slowly regenerate over time.
- New submission system
- Graphics look great
- Online mode has been re-built from the ground up.
- Create a Diva, Create a Show, Create an Arena, and Create a Championship are back!
- Three-man commentary team, with JBL.
- MyCareer has been improved, taking you all the way to the hall of fame. It'll also include more interviews, alliances, feuds and cutscenes.
- More match types (Ladder, handicap, and tornado tag)


The Bad
- Soundtrack could be better, but it's not terrible.
- No Horsewomen 
- Important wrestlers are missing (RVD, Dudley Boyz, Eddie)


Hopes
- Treat MyCareer as a story, not a set of repetitive, easy matches
- Add more match types!
- Make the Divas feel unique. Give them different animations.
- Make the game realistic, but fun!
