EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: IRON RAIN has come to PC within the same year as the PlayStation 4 version, which is really fast for this series. What means, is more people get to experience what a weird yet wonderful game. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: IRON RAIN is on a separate timeline from a different developer, Yuke’s. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: IRON RAIN doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it does enough different to separate itself from the numbered entries. In short, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: IRON RAIN has some technical issues and design decisions that hurt the overall experience.
The Earth Defense Force series has dug itself into the B-Tier genre of games. It’s campy, it’s rough, it’s janky, and it’s buggy; quite literally. But for the fans of the series, each new release brings excitement and joy. It’s like those of us in the Dynasty Warriors camp who are excited for new releases, even if it’s their not the best. Just like Dynasty Warriors, D3 Publisher has kept the formula the same for many years. But with Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain developer Yuke’s was to take the series in new directions.
WWE 2K15 was a game that fell victim to the problems that all sports games on this generation have suffered from in their first entry: unimpressive visuals, trimmed down modes and features, and small rosters. But that game also went in a different direction, focusing more on being a simulation of the WWE, rather than an arcadey feel that the games before it had. Thankfully, WWE 2K16 fixes most of what plagued the previous game, and the result is a better focused, looking, and playing game that is more accurate to the simulation of wrestling and the WWE than ever before.

Today, 2K announced availability of multiple downloadable content offerings for WWE 2K15.
Wrestling games in the past have failed to capture the ebb and flow of a match that you see on television. It’s a difficult balance to have – and for the most part, WWE 2K15 gets it right. There’s some missteps that happen along the way, but for fans of wrestling, but WWE in particular, there’s some great steps in the right direction to deliver an authentic experience to its real-life counterpart.
2K today announced additional details for MyCareer in WWE® 2K15, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise.
