Smarter Wrestling Game

WWE 2K15?s entrance into the current generation of consoles was heavily panned by critics as the game garnered an average rating of 62% for PS4 and 56% for Xbox One on Metacritic.

The developers seem to be upping their game not only by giving players a slew of fighters to play with, but also by providing us with an improved and smarter wrestling game.

IGN was able to get a hands-on experience on the game and they deemed the latest title to have tweaked the reversal system as the developers turned it more as a tactical manoeuvre that must be carefully managed. Reversals are now limited per use and require players to manage it carefully depending on their type of wrestler as ?technically sound wrestler might have a stock of five, while others might have four or three?, the report said.

Major Reversals have also been improved as special moves now have unique reversal indicators, IGN reported. Button mashers will also struggle to win games now as the submission mechanics relies on the player?s skills to outmanoeuvre their opponent

WWE 2K16 will be released on October 27, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.
