5 features that need to make a comeback in WWE 2K17

1 of 7

WWE 2K16 was, in many ways, a success. It improved on its predecessor, offering over one hundred playable superstars on its roster, and new gameplay mechanics like the reversal system. The game also let players relive classic moments in Steve Austin's career, which proved to be a popular addition.

But the game was far from perfect. Some people disliked the gameplay changes, opting for a more arcade experience. Character models were inconsistent, and career mode was uninspired. 

The WWE games continue to improve each year and perhaps one day, it will reach the acclaim once held with earlier titles. With WWE 2K17 expected to release later this year, here are 5 features that need to return to the franchise.

    These are definitely needed additions to WWE 2k17, but one big thing they still haven't fixed it the insanely limited Create-A-Wrestler options. Not only that, but there's likely STILL no Create-A-Diva mode either. People want creativity, and the ability to create one's own personal wrestler persona, or the ability to put certain movie and video game characters in the WWE as a what-if scenario is unmatched.


    My requests:
    - Re-add Create-A-Wrestler & Create-A-Diva modes
    - Minimum 40 layers for adding stuff to your character (hair, outfits, etc.)
    - More choices for each part of your wrestler's attire.
    - Easy-to-use add and delete parts system.
    - Multi-color parts

    I remember the Create-A-Wrestler being pretty extensive back in the day. I came up with some pretty crazy creations. When did this change?

    I ONLY want to see CAREER MODE ON PS3 AND XBOX 360! I am NOT satisfied with their excuse to NOT include it. I am still on PS3 and it maybe a while til I get a PS4.. :( PC is no dice either atm.

    A very good article, nonetheless!

    At this point I don't even know if it will be on PS3 or Xbox 360. Even if it is, I'm sure it will be poorer version unfortunately. We'll see!

    Yeah, I wouldn't care. I just miss the PS2 WWE games a lot! Same with PS1. I don't have either console anymore or the games for them.

    Was never a fan of the GM mode and the custom finishers lacked that smoothness of the in-game finishers. But, I can get behind the emphasis on more in-game unlockables and means of getting them.

    Personally, I think the yearly release model needs to stop. Seeing 2k17 after all the content for 2K16 and potential for building something big from it breaks my heart.

    I definitely agree with you Mackenzie; I think we've all had enough of this yearly release business model. The last thing we need is another Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, or every other EA Sports game. It seems to promote rushed development and accept mediocrity as something to take pride in. I have never been very involved with the franchises GM mode, ever since its debut in 2006. My fond memories of Smackdown Here Comes the Pain are shrouded by the cancerous cloud that the recent games have created. Your move, 2K Sports.

    Besides the fact they have been doing this forever for sports games, and not just 2K Sports

    I believe the WWE games were always yearly, if not every few years back when I played them a lot.

    I see I see. Thank you for clearing that up for me. I can tell you've really hit the books on the topic(s).
