Last Sunday, for my 22nd birthday I got WWE 2K16. This was the first WWE game that I got since WWE 2K14 after not getting last year's installment. My initial reaction this game was Wow. This has to be the best wrestling game I have ever played. The graphics, in ring moves and authentic gameplay makes this game a must have. The game is also more challenging than any other WWE game I have ever played. In past WWE games reversals happened all the time and it made it almost impossible for gamers to lose on legendary difficulty. The difficulty to this game makes it more enjoyable since it's an actual challenge vs. the CPU.
The roster is better than any other WWE game. With over 100 playable characters you can play as main event level stars like Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns and legends such as Bret Hart and Stone Cold. The game has lower tier superstars like Curtis Axel, R-Truth and Heath Slater, which allows you in the My Career mode to translate from a rookie to a veteran. The Divas available are limited but it only really hurts in the WWE Universe mode. The lack of Divas makes the rivalries limited but I don’t think it’s a huge deal. The roster would improve with the addition of the Four Horsewomen but besides that I have no problem with it.
