The next generation of WWE games has landed on our screens with WWE 2K15.

The biggest change is noticeable right from the first bell. The frantic pace that wrestling fans have seen on the last few WWE games across the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has been dialled back a bit. This brings a more technical element to the game. Blows feel like they carry more impact thanks to really precise collision detection, while strikes are easier to counter. That means that button mashers are less likely to get their hits through and might want to re-think their strategy.

The game has been given a visual overhaul, too, with new motion capture technology brought in from the NBA 2K series and improved animations. The effect, combined with the more technical fighting mechanics means that the game is pitched more as a simulation than other recent entries to the WWE franchise.

The audio's been worked on too, with more than five times the amount of commentary being a particularly notable addition.

The new-generation versions of the game features the MyCareer mode, in which players create their own superstar and attempt to bring them up through the ranks to glory.

The 2K Showcase mode brings emotional intensity to the game by comprehensively spotlighting two major feuds. One is the Triple H/Shawn Michaels rivalry from the early 2000s, and the other brings things closer to the present with the CM Punk/John Cena feud that ushered in the 'Reality Era' in 2011.

You'll almost be able to inhale the smell of sweat on canvas...
