Elite NBA players enjoy the 24/7 spotlight of national television, lucrative endorsement deals, and even occasional crossovers into Hollywood. But underneath this veneer of the charmed life are thousands of hours spent in gyms perfecting shooting strokes, honing dribbling moves, and sculpting physiques to withstand the rigors of an 82-game season. For better and worse, NBA 2K17's popular MyCareer mode looks past the glitz and the glamour to focus on the practical side of being a professional athlete.

A year after the Spike Lee debacle, MyCareer returns with a new narrative penned by screenwriter Aaron Covington (Creed). Regardless of which organization drafts you, your team's rookie class includes an overlooked gem named Justice Young, played by the talented Michael B. Jordan (Creed, The Wire). Together, you strive to become the next great NBA tandem, following in the footsteps of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Your chemistry develops through cutscenes and hours of practice at the gym, and if you play off each other enough during a game, you unlock the ability to take control of the tandem. Controlling two players at the same time almost feels too empowering; lethal give-and-gos are unleashed at the push of a button, and Young rarely misses an open look.

Performing well in MyCareer is paramount to improving the skills of your player, who once again starts with an absurdly low rating in a shameless ploy to get users to take the easy path and spend money on the virtual currency. Regardless of which approach you take, you need to put many hours into the practice mode to round out your player. Earning currency via games played and endorsement deals is still the way to upgrade your primary skills, but certain critical skills like stamina and free-throw shooting can only be improved by grinding at the gym. Unfortunately, the path to upgrading these is needlessly opaque; even if you shoot free-throws for 20 minutes, you may not raise your rating a single point. After putting 20 hours into the gym activities - which offer great variety, by the way - I still don't understand the logic of when skill points do and don't get awarded.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2K All-Time Top Ten Entry This is easily one of the best 2K's to date. Every year, graphics improve drastically, and the same holds true once again as nearly every player looks exactly like the real person, except for a few guys that could still use a little bit of work. The gameplay is a lot smoother than previous games, and it seems like the shooting is finally not too hard. I believe that for some there is a new aiming function but I haven't seen that yet so shooting is very crisp, and the shot meter is very straightforward. The one big problem that I have seen a lot of people have(though I have only seen it a small scale) is that during a game, if a player starts to get hot they'll be double-teamed as soon as they cross half-court EVERY play after leading to a LOT of easy assists in the paint that really diminish the fun of the game. 2K MyCareer is BACK on the map, as this year, they delivered an amazing experience, by producing a more thorough and fulfilling college experience before the draft, and the way that every action you make can influence the game is great to see. One thing I don't appreciate much is the attribute cap system set up so that online players don't show up with 99 overalls that destroy the competition in online play. However, I am an offline gamer, so the fact that I can't realistically become the GOAT is a little disheartening. Once again, you start from like a 55 overall (even though you're one of the top draft prospects in a class of 70's?) but with the numerous endorsements and other forms of earning VC, it has become a lot easier to become a phenom and enjoy the experience. Oh, and you can actually play your whole rookie year again, so there's a genuine shot at winning Rookie of the Year. I still have some more playing to do, but from what I have seen so far with this game, I absolutely love it and would recommend it to any basketball fan or sports fan interested in getting it. And I'd urge them to strongly consider trying MyCareer of course. =) BUY THIS GAME!!
