Can someone explain how the hell Universe mode works? There seems to be no cut scenes or anything.

I can't recall the last WWE game I seriously played, but it was like at least 10-12 years ago and I recall have the "season" or "career" mode be pretty cool with stories etc.

I don't get how this works now...I remember in the old game when you simmed a match they'd do a cut scene...

What am I missing here?

Thanks guys!

Yeah...which is kind of the point of that kind of mode I would think. If I just wanted to wrestle endless matches with no real story I can do exhibition...

You unlock cutscenes through attitude era apparently. I can't play this game anymore. I put it in and was on the menu screen wondering what to do and I got nothing.

I may just fork over money, buy a used PS2 and find Here Comes The Pain somewhere.

If you are messing with the booking instead of just doing the matches the Universe mode creates then you are going to get much less cut scenes.

Doesn't matter.. 2K hired the WWE Team from THQ and kept Yukes as the developer. I'm not going getting. Very disappointing.

Did anybody play this? I've read some good and some terrible reviews (lots of glitches, bad mode design and sound design) and I'd like to see what an average gamer thinks.

I haven't watched WWE or played a WWE game in about a decade. Curious what annual Smackdown players think.

I hated it because there was no "classic" story mode.

That's all I want. Create my guy, go through story mode with awesome cut-scene and stories going on. Let me choose my path, etc.

So my game keeps freezing during the Attitude Era mode right before the Montreal Screwjob. I'm pretty pissed I really wanted to do that match.

Is this games story mode any better than WWE 12? Can I just play, never edit the card, get storylines and **** that are interesting and I can control? Or are they very static, straight line storylines?

I wish they'd just make the game from scratch.

2K is also getting their design team to help work on it which I think is called Visual Concepts. I'm optimistic that they will make a good game. WWE 13 wasn't that bad but things just need some work. Attitude Era mode was a good addition but it had no replay value at all. I finished it about 4 days after I got the game and haven't touched it since. I hope they have a story mode like they used to have in older games where you could take any superstar you want including CAWs and play through the story mode. Universe mode still needs quite a bit of work but it's a good idea. I wouldn't mind having a GM mode either. Online needs lots of improvements. Reversals are really delayed, servers are crap, etc. There's also tons of bugs and glitches that need to be fixed. It's a shame they don't put out patches for this game to fix things.

There's seriously no replay value to WWE 13 at all. Universe is flawed, AE mode is a one-time play and the matches get boring after a while themselves. I traded in WWE 13 for NHL 13.

If i had GM Mode, I'd still have the game

It's the only mode I'd play/want.

I forget which game was the last to have GM Mode. I'd try to play it if I had it.

Smackdown vs Raw 2008 but the inclusion of ECW killed the rosters in that game for the mode. 2007 is better.

Sorry, two questions:

1) Would doing WWE Universe without touching the cards lead to storylines for my CAW? Or is it useless all together?

2) Can you do a CAW in the Attitude Era game mode?

1) if you touch the cards, you pretty much get no storylines/cutscenes. After a while of changing it up though, the computer picks up on what you're trying to do... but every time you change it, no cutscenes. The cards are random as **** too. David Otunga in the main event.

2) No. The AE mode is exactly what happened in real life.

So other than the annoyance of who's main eventing and such, is it okay? I just way decent storyline paths I can somewhat control with cutscenes etc. If that happens without touchin the card I can survive temporarily.

It's the same story every year, which is probably why I didn't pick it up this time.

For the first few days, people are like "holy **** this game is awesome!!"

Then, they realize it's just really not that good, and they don't touch it for months and it collects dust.
