Many were surprised by John Cena being on the cover, and have called for 2K to release alternate covers for the game. According to them, WWE 2K15’s cover is “not up to game standards.”
For WWE 2K15, 2K is incorporating its famous scanning technology, which is already uses in its NBA 2K series. The result is characters that look almost life-like, with many small details (hair, skin, face features etc.) being focused upon.
It seems that approximately 90% of the game’s complete roster has already been scanned; but we still haven’t received a full list of the roster. 2K sports has confirmed that amongst others, Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, John Cena, Hulk Hogan and Roman Reign, Daniel Bryan, Naomi, Cameron and AJ Lee will be appearing in the game.
IGN gave WWE 2K14 a rating of 8.7 out of 10, and had the following to say about the game:
It still lacks the brains to deliver competent AI and commentators, but WWE 2K14 has more than enough brawn to make up for it. 30 Years of Wrestlemania provides the strongest campaign backbone the series has had in a long time, the in-ring action is faster and more fluid than it’s been in years, and thanks to WWE 2K14’s continually expanding creation suite, we’re swimming in more options than we ever knew we wanted. It is indeed “time to play the game.
Additionally, according to 2K sports, Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler have already recorded over 35 hours of commentary for the new game. The publisher has also reported that there will be many special gameplay modes, and the game will look much more realistic and life-like than previous generations. WWE 2K15 does seem very promising indeed.
