Listen up, you pencil-necked geeks! I recently got my hands the PS4 version of Take Two Interactive’s WWE 2K15, the first iteration of the annual WWE wrestling simulation game since THQ finally bit the big one last year. Considering how much hype this game has received, and the brutally stripped-down inferior version that was released on last-gen consoles a month before it came out, I went in with my defenses up, cautiously optimistic. Thankfully, WWE 2K15 (mostly) holds up to its many praises, though it’s a long way off from being the perfect wrestling game.
