    Will the game have The Mean Street Posse? That could be a dealbreaker for me.

    Bought the game Yesterday, still got the 360. I prefer Universe of a career mode as I like booking/GM mode stuff. I like it, the game play is similar, but better than 14. Online is running much better than last year, no announcing glitches(like calling titles different names than what they are), and the roster is fantastic. Creation is also much better. Weapons no longer break, so you can keep using them, which makes like Extreme Rules matches a lot better. The default moves for wrestlers are much better and more accurate, with better animation(RKO for example), plus every non-submission finisher you can hit 'b' to automatically pin. The AI is especially better, which makes for a more fun match(like they actually trie to win/do pins before even getting a finisher).

    Having tons of fun with Universe and online. So much talent in the game, I had to create a 4th Majoor brand(WCW as they have an early 90's Clash arena). Also, awesomem OMG!'s and catch finisher, like you can reverse Seth's curb stomp into an RKO like at WM31.

    I recommend it, best WWE game in a very long time.

    bought it saturday, i dunno, it seems better. i still say the graphics are turned down from last year's ps4 game, but i guess i'd rather have all the stuff then graphics and no stuff.

    Just started tinkering with universe mode and boy does this seem unchanged. Guess career mode is the way to play this year.

    I don't understand the point of this mode. I don't like watching half the random jobbers on Monday Night Raw in real life. I don't want to play video game matches with them just on the offchance, I see a cutscene of someone attacking someone else after a match.

    Some of the random 3-way and 4-way matches are hilarious though.

    I'm having more fun just playing single matches. I haven't touched career mode. I touched 2K showcase a little bit, but I got mad trying to beat Bret Hart and it kept having me do all this BS that made me loss the match.

    What is your opinion of the new submission mechanic? I get what you're supposed to do conceptually, but in practice, I can't figure it out. I try to avoid submission finishers if I can.

    I haven't played Universe yet, but the only changes I am aware of are the personality traits and being able to have someone appear on more than one show regularly. But yeah, My Career seems best so far. That is if I can get the timing down on the pin meter. I do like how the matches feel more intense though. Slow paced maybe, but a win feels like a win.

    Universe is actually improved in small ways. Makes it feel more... Organic? Living? The storylines are less repetitive and make sense for the characters.
