In WWE 2K16 the best part is the roster which includes Superstars and Divas with all 120 unique playable characters. By unique they really means unique characters, they will provide an actual different character, not the versions of the same character. If one performer has two distinctive tricks, they would be counted as two characters not one. But the same performer from another era would not be counted among 120. So it is like, Dude Love, Cactus Jack, and Mankind would represent three unique characters, but 90s Triple H and current Triple H would actually be just one. There is no news or confirmation about that era, but we can guess it would be large, you can imagine how big the roster is gonna be for WWE 2K16. It is not a secret anymore that current NXT members will be on the roster.
Another best part is developers have not changed anything they have made previously to match pacing and overall gameplay. Moreover, they have enhanced more “simulation” direction. Movements of the wrestlers have improved, they have included extras moves to show the ability of the wrestlers and chain grappling have also returned in WWE 2K16. Your wrestler’s attribute values will now impact chain grapplers and there can even be ties that can results in breaks or cheap parting shots. Besides, there is an addition of working “grapples” where the initiator can relax and get the stamina back while draining his opponent. It can be a useful game mechanic.
There has always been an issue with the reversals for long. This year it seems they have resolved all the issue once and for all. One will initiate the game with limited stock of reversals, but as one will constantly use them, it will slowly regenerate over time.
That’s all for WWE 2K16’s big game play additions. Nevertheless, there are some other small additions also, which are much needed in the game or something which 2K15 was missing. Let’s take a look on those extra additions which have been revealed for WWE 2K16:
