Should be $39.99
Sport games every year they come out and every year they are the same with a few different features. What I want in 2k15 is more Legend teams I want every 2 teams that made it into the NBA Finales even last years and this years winners. Second Injured players, I tried a bunch of different ways an a update has not come out yet for 2k14 to play as Injured players like Derrick Rose, I understand he is not in the current line up because he is injured, but when you make your custom roster and try to play as Derrick Rose or any injured player you can only play them until a foul happens or a time out then they go on the bench never to be played for the rest of the game. Third thing A good create a player where either you can add a picture of your face and it puts your face in the game or the way fight night round 3 had which was endless ways of making your guy look like you or a friend or just anybody. Last all Sport games should be Cheaper than a normal game because every year they come out and there is little to no difference!
A.I ruined it
NBA 2k15 is a good game... When it works properly! Servers are always down which cuts the game in half basically. The worst thing about 2k15 is the A.I. The A.I is absolutely ridiculous! Dribbling past you even though you are playing perfect defense, hitting contested shots way too often, performing ridiculous animations like attempting a block instead of going for a rebound, not boxing out even when told to, pulling up for a jump shot 2 ft away from the rim, the high FG% of the CPU (every game I've played the CPU has never shot below 46FG%). The MyGM mode is good but managing players can get a little bit frustrating (like when Kyle Anderson asked for a starting spot over Kawhi Leonard). MyCareer is lackluster to say the least. Park is an absolute joke since you can buy VC with real money that means you can instantly jump to a 99 Overall. In the end it's a good game ruined by an overwhelming amount of useless animations, Horrible shooting mechanics, and just plain stupid A.I. I went in expecting a legitimate basketball simulation but instead I got a bad game that just happens to look nice.
Free Roam!!! Next Gen= New Possibilities!!
Alright so 2K did an excellent job of incorporating al the new cut scenes and features for the my career mode, but because we're on next gen I believe 2K still has a long way to go. The driving the car and riding in the plane waiting screens should actually allow your character to actually drive your car to the stadium, and arrive for a shot around or warm up something for that more realistic feel. Also, bring back the draft combine and training camp from 2K 11, instead of just that one unrealistic game against all the rookies. If we're really going into the NBA we should have to really work for it. Add weekly practice requirements like in Madden to allow your team chemistry to build further then just going from game to game. Yes I know the free roam is long shot, but the practices,draft combine, and training camp isn't asking a lot from 2K. It just seems the whole process is just too easy now. At least with the combine and training camp your really had to earn your spot or get sent down to D league in NBA 2k 10! Those were the good ole days. Bring back the good ole days!!!
Has some flaws, but an overall masterpiece
Don't buy into the bad reviews, this game is well worth the $50. First, the graphics just keep getting better by the year. The players look so incredibly realistic, my brother walked in and thought I was watching an actual NBA game. Second, the Park server is so much better this year than NBA 2k14's. Yes, there are some issues with lag and load times, but it has improved greatly. Games are easier to find, you can easily switch parks after pro lvl 3, and the shorter games make the appeal last longer. Also, the my GM has improved. The my Team is about the same to me, but that just means it is still a good game. Altogether, this was well worth my money and I recommend this to any basketball fan!
Listen to the fans 2K
Ok before i write this let me just say I really hope 2K Sports sees this. All you really need this year for once in y'all natural born life is listen to the fans and stop trying to make it look like you are. There were so many fans requesting server changes since 2K8 and yet y'all still didn't. Another is the defensive system. Just because LeBron, KD and Kobe are the best in the game doesn't mean they can't be stopped. There each overpowered in there own ways, For ex. Lebron going inside is almost literally impossible to foul or stop. KD always making 3s back to back to back when your playing someone but when you try it nothing works sometimes. A big complaint i know y'all do is give a advantage to the person with the better team but it should be based on skill not the team. All im saying 2k is listen to the fans this year just read through the comments on ig or youtube. LISTEN TO THE FANS
Most unplayable garbage in years
To sum this game up, you can't play it online. Oh, and most of its features require online play. So if you plan on you know, playing the game, don't buy this. Input lag of greater than half a second destroys any reaction time, glitches galore, server instability, issues with scorekeeping, myplayer face scanning is awful. Players don't respond when you throw the ball to them to catch it, rebounds bounce off heads and out of bounds, attempting to control a player on defense is like steering a boat. Sure it looks nice, but you can only polish a tu r d so much. Developers are less than helpful, with their "support team" routinely accepting support tickets but never following up on them or giving brief, snarky replies. They've released the same game for the past few years now, with major MAJOR issues on every release that has taken months to fix each time. Next time I will either be buying Live, or not buying any NBA games at all. 2K continues to screw the pooch, and my wallet hurts because of it as well as all the time I've lost playing this terrible game.
MUST BE A FINISHED PRODUCT THIS TIME!!!!
Ok lets be real here 2k sports and take two... we all knew 2k14 was a rushed product only to have it on shelves by the holiday season. The menu looks of that of an nba 2k8 the menu it self was backwards you had to boot the nba today menu then go back to bring up a menu of items...WHY?? graphically yes that has improved drastically for THOSE WITH HIGHER PIXEL DENSITY TV's otherwise nba 2k14 on next gen consoles look like they can be achieved on the ps3/360. please focus more on the gameplay this year stop throwing passes pass a wide open player in the backcourt with no defenders in sight. please fix small things like the jerseys glitching we do pay 60 every year you know. please fix the park....it was creative but unnessacary bring back an old but advanced way of starting matches on the black top. DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR CUSTOMERS AND FANS AWEEEEE!!!! update player hair during a season update the game DAILY!!!! stop the every 2day business its not what you advertised last summer im just saying. fix the small things like selecting to be the home/away team. real player speed. stop having defenders getting lost on defense by the offensive player just sprinting around the court. and please invest in better servers 2k!!!!!!!...... this is not a RANT but coming from a fan of his favorite sports game period I do believe I speak for most when I say we need more from our 2k games
Worst 2k basketball game yet.
Good- Pretty good graphics. Bad- Gameplay. Your AI controlled teammates have the basketball IQ of a peanut. Never move to get open. The new animations are very bad as well. The rebounding animation where they tip the ball up instead of coming down with it is just like nba live 10 except most of the time the other team grabs it. The movements onplayers are super slow and sluggish. Playing defense is very difficult because of this. Also the new shot timing meter is very flawed on jump shots and free throws. No matter how closely you think you got to timing it perfect it's as if the game just decides when you can make it or not. There are barely any things to make your created player look different. About 15 total hair styles. Very ugly facial features. All around this is a terrible game. If you are thinking about buying this definitely rent it from red box before spending the money. I would not rerecommend buying this.
The best thing 2k can do is take clark Kellogg off of the game. They should have Kevin Harlen, Reg Miller and Steve Kerr. Also have doris burke, Heather cox, craig sager and lisa salters as the sideline reporters. Stop being cheap and pay these people to be on the game reporting in different games. Longer convos at halftime and at the end of the game with the players. Show use live action of games while playing in season mode. me and other fans have a bunch of suggestions for this franchise and if hyall would listen then nba live would even be trying to make a come back.
Huge fan of the 2k series, I found the menu system clunky and almost unusable. All these fancy cut scenes but just obvious bugs which upon contacting support were not fixed (maybe they are fixed now). 2k have always been a bit sloppy with testing, but come on, starting a league with an adjusted roster doesn't even work (guess how many people adjust their roster, pretty much everyone). You can argue that after some patches it will work, but having show stoppers in your initial release is totally unacceptable. 2k15 has been demoted to be my coffee cup coaster for the year. One thing I can guarantee is I ain't letting it anywhere near my ps4.
