Best 2K game I have played in a while.
My honest thoughts about this game is that obviously the XBONE and PS4 version is way better and a completely different game. But I can't afford a next gen console at the moment, but being the basketball fanatic that I am I purchased this game for 60$ the exact day it came out played it and I loved it. Now NBA 2K15 implemented a new jumpshot system into the game and it does make this game more challenging which I like. The presentation brings back memories of how the old 2Ks used to be, also the basketball is not loose like 14 was, so you won't get turnovers that often, soundtrack is great, association mode is not buggy, and mycareer mode is the same as the previous 2Ks which is great because I want to play basketball, not an rpg game. 2K15 for the Xbox 360 is not worth 60$, but it is still a great basketball game and I highly recommend it. I have played every 2K game, 15 is the best yet IMO.
Please Don't Waste Your Money
I have played the last five 2K basketball games. 2K14 was my favorite and I was SO excited to get 2K15 for my Xbox360. I preordered it and was counting down the days. I got it today, IT IS THE SAME EXACT THING AS 2K14. Seriously, take 2K14, add a bad soundtrack, and a new shot release system, and you have 2K15. Literally the biggest letdown ever. I'll be returning it shortly, and I suggest you save yourself $60.
The Death Of NBA 2K On Xbox 360 & PS3
I would of respected 2k it they just made this for next gen only but giving us this lame game and charging $60!? The servers are worse than before. The gameplay is terrible and unrealistic. You see way too many "blocking fouls" and weird shots that go in. Defense is a joke in previous NBA 2k games I'm a pretty good defender in this you can't stay in front of your man. Easy layups missed. MyCareer is the same as 2k13's only new menu, you can see the injury updates, career milestones and minute rotation changes. Stick with 2k14 and start saving your money for a next gen console.
I don't know where to begin for how bad this game is. If you want to find a clear indicator of a company wanting you to by the latest stuff this is it. The Xbox 360 version is just downright awful. It's the same old mycareer story with the same old facial features that look like they would be acceptable in 2005, with the same audio. The new shot timer added to the game is completely terrible. Your chances of getting the "perfect shot" are next to zero. The My a Team function which is the trading card version of the game is one of my favorite Modes in all other sports games...this one ruined it. The players you get are absolutely terrible and can't hit a shot to save their life. It takes a lot of time to save up for a gold pack and when you do you get one player who hardly makes a difference. You have the option of playing a nba team's season schedule and I can't get past the second game (Minnesota t-wolves) who magically have Kevin love and two ricky rubio's who can drain three's better than curry. You have the option to play online against other player's my team's, when I tried I had all bronze players and got matched with someone with all gold. Of course I was blown out and it was irritating. There are random blocking fouls called when opponents drive baseline, the AI teammates you have dont understand the concept of hekp defense. During a few games the game defaulted my center to guard their point guard...which makes no sense at all. It seems more in this game people can drain shots when you play very tight defense...but yet you can miss open shots wih great players like KD. The association mode is probably the only game mode I don't have a problem with, besides the fact 9/10 opposing gm's offer you lousy trades. If you have any 2k game before this one just play it and don't waste your money on this, it's the same game for the past 3 years with updated rosters
Ive had enough of nba 2k. Its LITERALLY the same thing every year. The only changes they make are very small things that don't matter. If 2k expects people like me to continue buying there games than they better drastically change the next game. Im tired of the same old junk. The only thing I enjoy about this game is the multiplayer. That's it. Hopefully NBA Live is a success because that's the next nba game im buying.
This game sucks! Same feel as the previous games. 2k needs to stop worrying about the graphics and fix the gameplay.
Done with 2k
I doubt I have enough room here to write everything I hate about this game, so I'll keep it short. Last 2k game I played was 13, and even though I disliked somethings it was a solid game and the online association was pretty cool. But this game makes 2k13 look like the best game EVER. All-star team up is literally pointless, I haven't played a single match where almost everyone didn't leave. The shot system is garbage, and it's hilarious how 2k's statement on the system is "well everyone who is good seems to just memorize the players shot animation,they don't look at shot meter"...ok then why is it in the game? Why isn't there an option for 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, etc for regular exhibition games? Why can't you bring back Fantasy Draft Tournament mode, online would be awesome. What happened to Online Fantasy Association? I know it was hard to get a full league to play a season, but I don't see mycrew working any better. Why can't they both be in the game? The game AI is HORRIBLE when on your team. Playing the computer is literally just them setting off ball screens and taking wide open shots while your teammates NEVER cover the help. The AI teammates on all stars match up are even worse, they never pass and can never make their shots, and trust me you will be playing with AI teammates because EVERYONE ends up quiting. I hate how 2k keeps messing with the drop/hop step button claiming its a "cheese" move...right and your entire game is entirely cheese free? Lets take out a realistic move that is 100% part of the game of basketball and call it cheese because noobs don't know how to utilize it....makes sense. It's like they tried to take away all use of the main buttons and just want the shot stick to do everything including ball handling, shooting, layups, passing, euro-step,hop-step, dunking, free throws. It's ridiculous on offense you literally feel like half of the buttons don't do anything. I'm an old school 2k player going back to 2k2 and I never got down the shot stick, and just prefered the good old x button for shots. Now they've made that impossible, I know for a fact layups have a much higher chance of going in when using stick, compared to x button. There are certain layups that can only be done with shot stick and it's very frustrating trying to control everything with one stick. Also what is up with the free throws? They put in a shot meter for the regular shots for the first time, yet take out the shot indicator for free throws? It's literally impossible to memorize the free throws of over 300 players like serious 2k how do you not see you're making everyone mad? This game and franchise is absolute garbage, also I forgot to add that for the first time I actually had to remove some tracks from the playlist after only 1 listen because they were sooo bad and actually painful to listen to. 2k is definitely good at making you hate songs with an undying passion.
NBA 2K14 Part Two
Don't get me wrong, this is a decent game, however, there is one major flaw, IT'S NBA 2K14!!!! It is literally NBA 2K14 but they took out two game-modes and the server isn't running. On top of all that the rosters are basically as of June, maybe early July, for example Kevin Love is still on the T'Wolves! But the gameplay remains stellar, and hopefully the servers get fixed, as well as some major updating.
great nba game better than 2k14
i own nba 2k14 and 2k11 but nba 2k15 is the best yet for 360 it may not be as good quality in the graphics department as ps4 or xbox one but there is updated rosters 1 or 2 new game modes but it still looks great and sounds great i would get 2k15 for 360 if u have not made the jump to next gen yet
Ive played nba before. But i like the 15 one. Definetly get this game. Its one of the same best games ever.
