2K15 Roster Reveal Criticized
The Independent (UK) recently published an article criticizing last weekend’s WWE 2K15 roster reveal. The author takes plenty of shots at the event, and WWE itself, and you can read an excerpt below:
WWE’s annual roster reveals for their latest games are one of the most surreal experiences you can imagine. They mainly consist of real people assuming fake personas having to answer genuine questions about pre-scripted storylines by a horde of rabid fans. It’s utterly bizarre, but hey, at least this year there wasn’t a seemingly inebriated Ric Flair making a spectacle of himself.
With Sting making his first real appearance for WWE and legends like Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin in attendance, the actual game itself was kind of lost amidst a barrage of tough questions directed at a bewildered panel that probably forgot how to spell their birth names around the first time they became intimate friends with the frame of a steel chair.
The article goes on to slam WWE and 2K for not actually revealing any gameplay or graphics, and while it does applaud some aspects, many of them are back-handed compliments towards the game.
BP: I was pretty sure a roster reveal is exactly what it states; maybe the writer knows something we don’t. The event was well-received and entertaining, if for nothing else but to see Sting and Hogan interacting with Sheamus, Reigns, etc.
