Do you smell what The Rock is cookin’?

Wrestlemania 30 just happened this past weekend, and as usual it gets me back into the mood to play some great wrestling games. Too bad the entire genre has pretty much been a disappointment for all of the last generation and then some. Part of that probably has to do with what you want to call the Madden syndrome. WWE knows that they’ve got the market on wrestling titles and a fairly guaranteed audience no matter what they put out, so people buy it every year with little to no motivation.

I’ve been a huge wrestling fan for over 20 years and the only game this generation I thought was even decent was WWE 13, that basically means it took them most of the generation to accomplish something I’d even give a passing look, much less buy with unbridled enthusiasm. With 2k15 on the way and coming to next-gen systems, here are 5 glaring issues they really need to fix:

    Great points, I would add two more things to the list –

    1) Fix the moves – Remove old animations from the game, there are several animations that just look bad in this game that are still carried over from the early SVR games. Also, submission moves should be submission moves. Even if it’s a weak submission, it should be able to submit the opponent. (One of the ankle locks is a good example for this).

    2) More control in create modes. Example – Entrances – If you have a song on your hard drive you want to come out to, and the song gets really good at 20 seconds in, let us choose when to have our CAW come out. Create a Move – give us more options, open up to any of the taunts in the game, etc. Create a Wrestler – give us more options, and update the pre-made generic outfits, we are looking at the same thing we have seen for the past 4 years.

    I personally want to see a My Wrestler mode similar to how NBA 2K does My Player.
