2k14 was a good game it had its fair share of flaws but over all was fun to play. The most annoying aspect of the game is online. Getting booted, the courts always messed up no matter the time of day or traffic. Just poor server management. Some twin blade servers with a quality backbone would be awesome. I bet they have a server room full of old DELL and HP pc's all super dusty with the AC barley cooling the server room. (Thats how they perform at least) The PARK. I Dunno 2k allowing people to run around might be to much. People turned the park in GTA and run around aimlessly!!? Bring back crew and random select. You'll be sitting there waiting for a game to start and the last person will just run around like a fool waisting everyones time, because he doesn't want to play with a guy or doesn't like his rating. SMH
Had potential but disappointed
Another year of 2k basketball and yet again there are server issues. Trying to play online with this game is near impossible. Although I think better than last year it still lacks the definition of a great game. The graphics are the best ive ever seen and the gameplay is ok. I still find it ridiculous how difficult it is to defend and how easily the computer can make it a close game in a matter of seconds by draining threes like its nothing. I always say i'm never going to buy another 2k game again but I always seem to come back. I'm a huge basketball fan so I guess this game satisfies my urge to get on the court and play some ball during the season but other than that its not something i would pick up everyday
This game is not worth $50
This game is broken. Last years 2k14 was way better than this years some how. So many glitches I don't have enough time to type them all. Leaderboard/conference standing do not pop up in game when they say "take a look at the standing". The commentary is broken. Same phrases as 4 years ago. My player is a complete mess as far as upgrading stats. The animations players do on court are terrible. Some of it works realistic as it should, but when you have Dwight Howard going to the rim with nobody in front of him and he does not dunk it. Instead goes for a reverse layup and misses a wide open dunk? The passing is terrible. Point guards just seem to throw the ball in the general direction of someone which results in countless turnovers. 4/10 for me. Companies these days just don't care about producing a good game anymore.
For the perfection that was NBA 2K14, I was extremely excited for 2K15. I was let down to a whole other level once I received it though. The defense in this game is absolutely atrocious. The players (even small nimble guards like Kyrie or Chris Paul) move extremely stiff on defense. Trying to guard a PG or SG is dang near impossible as if you even semi take 1 wrong step then they'll blow by you and the defense is so stupid that no one helps once this happens. Then if you do manage to actually play tight defense and they go up for a shot, if they are in the paint or around it then theres a 90% chance it will go in, even with contact or a hand in their face. its absolute BS. The amount of CPU shots made is ridiculous when they are in the paint or driving. I was only playing on pro and had lock down D on big men and the still pulled up and knocked down nearly every shot. Now offense is much smoother but its alot like what the CPU does to you on defense. It's almost hard not to score unless you throw up crazy shots. Now the worst part on offense is how bad the passing is. If there's any defender even remotely around where you want to pass, they'll tip it and steal it. Forget even trying to run a pick n roll and pass in the paint, it always gets stolen. Thats it for the gameplay. Now 2K clearly wants you to pay a boat load of real money for VC, if you dont mind absolutely grinding and sucking in Myplayer for atleast 3-4 seasons, then you'll be ok. But 2K almost forces you to buy VC because the amount you get by playing is embarrassing. I earned 95 in a game where I scored 27 points with 11 assists. The pros to this game however is the features/game modes and the graphics. The player models blow out any other sport game ever. Thats clearly all 2K cares about anymore. The music is also terrible this year. Im praying NBA Live is a step up because im trading 2K15 in tomorrow.
Trading it in today
I am so disappointed with unpolished games making it to the shelves...I love basketball but this game was a huge letdown...save your money..
So mant different features!! 100% must have
NBA 2K has become that game that you need to keep on the shelf all year. If you don't see the hard work that has been put into this game go buy NBA Live, and who would do that.. right? 2K has announced the new park with 3 different factions including 3 different areas with so many new features. Pharrell Williams who is a musical genious currated the game and im sure he put some nice tracks on the game. In mycareer you can scan your face into the game itself so no more preset generic characters. They have also created a new squads mode which takes the place of crew and is 110 times better.. trust me. They've created a jordan rec center where there are 4 full court areas for your myplayer to play. You also still have mygm myteam and other features also and 2K sports has yet to stop adding more. Im anticipating this game so much i had to type this review. Thanks for your time
The graphics on 2k14 were amazing but hope this year they improve the rebounding very lackluster and clumsy glad they improved blocking so much from years pass and the my player was a huge step up from last gen to next gen hope it's great defiantly a first day pick up
The Shot Meter is broke
The Shot Meter starts acting up in the 2nd half. The sound & graphics are great. The gameplay is bad. In the 4th Quarter for a shot grade, they give you a 'F' for almost every shot.
My Player is broken
When I'm right in the middle of a My Player game, I will lose connection to the 2k servers, and it will kick me out. When I reconnect, it will put me back at the start of the game, and I will lose everything I just did. (One time I was in the post game reading stats, and it did this exact thing to me.)
As you can imagine this is very frustrating. I don't even understand why I need to be connected online to play My Player. I'm playing against the computer???
Don't buy this game if you wish to play My Player, it has at least one horrible bug.
Best Game of the year!!!!!! NBA Live 15 is good to but hands down 2k15 is the best. Live has a long way to go to catch up with 2k
