WWE 13 review considers WWE 14 release window
It seems that nowadays no sooner has a new game been released speculation surrounds another sequel, and in some cases many future titles have this suggested before they even release. It’s fair to say expectations are high for WWE 13 although some reviews are already looking towards the next one, giving cause to believe that a sequel could be on order for next year.
In WWE 13, we get to go back to a time when wrestling was at its most prominent with the inclusion of the Attitude Era, and this will be a big draw for fans of WWE. Taking an in-depth look at the upcoming game CVG highlight plenty of issues that have been around since its Smackdown beginnings on the PS2, and they go into detail about how this seems to be just another addition to the list of infuriating WWE games. The gameplay is similar to a performance art where players seem to take turns in attacking with the other waiting for the ideal time to reverse this tactic, yet from my impression, this is what WWE is all about.
They acknowledge that improvements have been made and the control system is a more refined in comparison to the last game, and the pinning mechanic is better this time around. Talking about the novelty value of WWE 13 they stress that the visuals still require improvements, as character models look stiff and this is apparent with the way you control them. The addition of the Attitude Era provides plenty of excitement especially for those who are familiar with this time of wrestling history, yet overall they feel this could have been better, and suggest a year off so the developers can completely overhaul their engine and update it for those who expect higher standards in the current world of gaming.
A decent break to rectify the issues found in the last WWE games would be the ideal solution to bring the franchise up to modern expectations, although this could mean the next WWE will be a next gen title, so we will have even more requirements by then. In other relative news, our most recent post spoke about a WWE 13 review that highlights persistent flaws even though the game has been vastly improved. The problems involved include audio, video and animation issues, yet there are still some great scores being awarded overall.
Looking forward to WWE 14, The Bleacher Report lists some legends they would love to see next time around, and although the newly released WWE 13 has the most extensive roster to date, some great characters have been documented. Going through some wrestlers that should be involved they have left out those currently associated with TNA like Hulk Hogan and Sting, so they have come up with some big characters including the likes of Goldberg, Ric Flair, Scott Hall, Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage, Hardcore Holly, Curt Hennig and Lex Luger. Do any others spring to mind? Additionally, would you prefer to wait for the next gen consoles to come out before experiencing WWE 14?
