WWE 2K16 Review
The people’s champ?
I was a huge wrestling fan during the late 80s to early 2000s. I started as a fan of Seargent Slaughter, moving onto the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Test, and The Hardy Boys. I don’t know how it happened, but I eventually drifted away from watching wrestling. The same thing kind of happened with wrestling video games. My favorite wrestling video game of all-time was WWF WrestleMania 2000 on the Nintendo 64. There were some others I’ve enjoyed -- some of the Smackdown vs Raw games weren’t too bad. So when I tried WWE 2K15 last year, I was filled with disappointment… the same disappointment I felt when Triple H interrupted Test’s and Stephanie McMahon’s wedding with some terrible news.
So you understand my cautiousness when approaching WWE 2K16. After a hands-on event that left me with mixed feelings, I was feeling better about this year’s title. Is a revamped Career mode and a huge roster of wrestlers enough to bring the Heavyweight Title back to WWE 2K16?
