Have you ever wanted to completely redo how the WWE approaches storylines and their TV lineup? Have you ever thought about booking as a second career choice?

Well, WWE 2K15's Universe Mode gives you a bit of a taste of what that's like, if you can also stomach some artificial limitations and some wonky interface quirks along the way.

Pros
  • Your options as a booker/GM/whatever you are have a lot of room to work within. You can book several matches per show and develop rivalries and schedule title matches to your hearts desire.
  • The fun factor is definitely here if you are a creative individual wiling to put some time into building your own universe. I have had some fun making Brock Lesnar an unstoppable beast with my created character slowing rising through the ranks. With some luck, I'm going to have them square off at Wrestlemania for the title.
  • The ability to add shows to your heart's content is just excellent.

Cons
  • The automatic booking is sometimes quite terrible. On more than one occasion the same wrestler was booked in a match 2 and 3 times in a show.
  • The interface is designed to make everything as hard as possible to do. Everything takes about 3 to 4 button presses more than it should ever take.
  • No options to add more or less matches to shows, and no 'in between segments' to spice things up.
  • The Title screen in particular is a mess. Why not have only active titles shown for Title matches, etc.? Just poorly thought out execution.

Final Thoughts

WWE 2K15's Universe Mode is an adequate mode for gamers who want to do their own thing in the game but have those consequences play out over time. However, it's extremely limited and it feels it was frustratingly created that way for some audacious reason. I'd love it if Universe Mode were given a more proper treatment next year, and given more bells and whistles and even some real objectives for you to shoot for. The foundation is here for something special -- just what is here isn't special but merely only adequate.

In the ring, WWE 2K15 is a lot like it has always been after you get past the new gimmicks put into the game. That is not to say the new gimmicks are necessarily bad ó its just that WWE 2K15 largely feels like every other THQ/Yukes now 2K wrestling game before it.

The steady evolution continues, and with it there are pieces of the gameplay which have improved and pieces which have not. Here is my breakdown after a day and a half of playtime...

WWE 2K15ís MyCareer mode is new to this yearís game, featuring your created Superstar rising up from the ranks of the NXT roster to compete on the main roster for the WWE championship. Iím a bit of the way into this mode, but still on the NXT show for now. Here are some initial thoughts of what Iím seeing:
  • The opening segments where you compete in the performance center and learn how to do things is ok, but it really does lack any emotion or passion. Iím not sure if this can be improved, but it definitely feels kinda empty competing in there.
  • So far Iím 5-2 in matches in the NXT level. Iíve lost a couple because I couldnít get back on offense once I was getting destroyed. The reversal timing is hit or miss for me. It seems like Iím either on it or not.
  • The presentation, lack of voices for my player, and overall experience feels rather bare bones. Itís not something youíd classify as special at this point. 2K was forthcoming with the fact that they made this yearís mode as a building block to future years, but in real talk that means pretty straightforward and no frills.
  • Thereís not much Ďout of the ringí interactions are decision to be made yet. I donít feel as if Iím having much control over whether the crowd loves me or hates me yet either.
  • Match star ratings arenít as important as I thought for getting up to the top of the roster fast. I had a match rated 1.5 stars and William Regal told me I was obviously capable of putting on great matches so he was giving me a shot at being the new #1 contender for the NXT Title. Iím not sure that computes.
  • You are given a basic set of moves you have to customize move by move. This, like many other aspects of the game, is done in an incredibly cumbersome manner. Itíd be nice if there were basic movesets to choose from so you donít have to do them all one by one. Maybe there is and Iím not seeing it as well, maybe.
  • Speaking of cumbersome, the create-a-wrestler feature/process is pretty clunky. You have to wait for the game to load pieces you add onto your created wrestler, sometimes by more than five or ten seconds. What should be a pretty fast/seamless process actually took me over 40 minutes. It was so slow, I dread going back in and making adjustments to my created wrestler.

Final Thoughts

The big thing Iíve noticed about MyCareer is that itís like the rest of the game at this point. Far from bad, but far from great as well. Itís adequate or solid, with plenty to keep you busy and enough to keep you playing, but itís clear the developers were just wanting to get a basic level of functionality down this year before doing anything new or exciting. That sets up a potentially amazing future but a pretty barebones and merely adequate experience today.

WWE 2K15 is out as of today, and while many of you are enjoying the game -- there are some of you who don't know what the game offers when it comes to match types. There are several different match types to choose from, here's the complete list:

  • Normal
  • Extreme Rules
  • Falls Count Anywhere
  • Iron Man
  • Last Man Standing
  • No Holds Barred
  • Steel Cage
  • Submission
  • Hell in a Cell
  • Table
  • TLC

Triple Threat
  • Normal
  • Extreme Rules
  • Hell in a Cell

4-Man
  • Tag
  • Fatal Four Way
  • Fatal Four Way Extreme Rules
  • Elimination Tag

6-Man
  • Tag
  • Ladder
  • Battle Royal
  • Elimination Tag
  • Hell in a Cell

The game also includes the Royal Rumble match. The most notable exceptions in my opinion are Survivor Series matches, as well as other bigger tag matches. Still, there's plenty of options to play around with, hopefully we get some create-a-match type of features in the future.

With WWE 2K15 having kind of a strange release schedule, a lot of users have been waiting to see whether the new consoles make this year's entry worthy of the upgrade. After spending some time with the Xbox One version, it's safe to say that 2K's influence on this year's product is obvious. From some of the subtle animations changes and presentational flair, everything has received a boost in some way.

Then again, from what I've seen, there are clearly areas where corners have been cut to ship a product on time, such as missing modes, a smaller roster and a diminished creation suite. We're not talking NHL 15 levels of feature and mode omission here, but there are some items missing, so make sure you go in with your eyes open. Some users are quite upset at only 25 create-a-wrestler spots, for instance, compared to 100 on previous generation hardware.

Here are some of my quick impressions... (Make sure you share yours)
