That's what happens when you have a annually released franchise though. Especially a sports one. You're never going to get major changes every year, it's just not plausible. Just a new lick of paint and some slightly different bells and whistles. Also taking into account the developer change, we have to give 2K sports a little leeway, coming in halfway through the development of the game and trying to put their own stamp on it. As I said earlier on in this thread, let's not judge them yet wait until the next game, the next gen WWE2K15 or whatever it's going to be called. Also as much flak as this game is getting, you're all still going to buy it!!
