    That commentary is still brutal. That reaction after the RKO off the top from the crowd and the commentary was abysmal. They need to do something about that.
    Visuals look good though.

    King I agree with you 100% man. It looks fantastic but man that commentary is still rough. I know it's a video game but for me there's too much dead air. But I understand it's tough to replicate that.

    Game play and graphics look good to me but yeah commentary is very lacking, Graves doesn't even sound like himself. Thing is what can they do to get it where it needs to be? I imagine commentary for a wrestling game would be the hardest thing to do out of the games that have it.
    There are 150+ wrestlers all with different moves, there are thousands of moves in the game that can transition to a number of other moves according to who is wrestling. Then you have to get right what commentary is really about and that's telling a story, making the action in the ring better by telling a story.
    You have to have emotion, then I would imagine different levels of emotion. In a match Cena starts off and hits Randy with a right punch, 15-20 min in the match Randy has had the upper hand for a awhile goes for his finisher and doesn't get the pin fall..Cena makes a come back and hits Randy with that same right punch. There is going to be a lot more feeling and emotion/excitement than the punch Cena hit Randy with to start the match cause of whats going on at this point in time.
    The commentary needs to show this, same with a pin fall, some wrestlers go for the pin in the first few minutes, even the crowd doesn't get as excited for this, later in the match after a finisher or big move and it seems more likely for a pin fall the crowd and commentary is a bit more excited. They need to start by having commentary get excited for finishers...then as the match goes on have a more excited kind of commentary.
    Now I have no idea how they would do this....maybe at certain points early in the match pull commentary from this batch of recordings, then 5-10 or 10-15 min of match pull commentary from this batch of recordings...etc. This of course seems to add a lot of commentary files to the game and I can only assume take up more space for the game. They would need to have all the commentators record a lot more, hell they may even need to tour with WWE to get even close to what is needed.
    Really wish the team for wrestling showed up here like the NBA guys, could only help the game IMO.
    All that said I may be over thinking things but either way look forward to the game.
    Haven't played since 2K15. Game looks better but still see cutscenes are in the gameplay. That's my biggest issue with this series. Just let the moves play out in real time, no need to draw up a cutscene for a move.
    This was supposed to be the year with new commentary? Come on now lol. And I don't want to hear from them, "this does not have the full commentary included yet."
    Some of those Orton/Cena moves and animations have been in the game for some time now. Looks more of the same, with some better graphics and new moves/animations. When orton performed his signature, I mimicked every single detail including the looking left then right before going into the DDT.
    Is this PS4?  Looks underwhelming in terms of graphics and performance.  That lighting on the Rollins entrance is an absolute eye sore.
    I'm a fan of this series and usually pick it up every year, but not sold on this one yet.  May just have to stick with Fire Pro this year.
    It looked like you can pick up your opponent and carry them to a corner. I also liked hearing the crowd counting when Corbin was Hitting Styles against the turnbuckle. I like what I saw the commentary was a little rough. At times it was funny when Graves took a shot at Saxton.

    You can turn them off.
    Graphics looked pretty decent, but as one person mentioned, didn't they say the commentary was updated? Because it sounds pretty bad. The announcers sound as if they don't care to be there. Orton RKO's off the top rope and......nothing. No excitement at all.
    If the graphics is the only thing improved, this will be very disappointing.
