DO NOT BUY-NOT FUN
I first want to say that you do not play the game, the game plays you. Depending on the situation, a player will have a higher or lower chance of making a shot, no matter how good they are. Also fouls are called based mainly on what the scoreline is and not whether it is actually a shooting foul. You will find yourself very frustrated when you are playing a godly team like the Cavs or the Spurs and can't win because the game decides who will. Please do not buy this game because it is not worth the constant frustration.
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.

2k14 is better for gameplay
I was excited for this game to come out and everything was cool, but once I played MyTeam Road to playoffs everything sucked. The shot meter was lagged online and quite frankly I'm not a fan of it. I'd get a B- Slightly Early release wide open with a 90 overall 3PT shooter and miss in the corner. It ticked me off cause I can't shoot for my life, all I can do is drive with layups or dunk and get smashed online this is just terrible I can't enjoy 1 good game online without getting a perfect release online or rather even making a jumpshot people save your money and play 2k14 imo
I am really enjoying the my career mode and mygm mode. I have not gotten into the my team much yet but I will soon. The only thing bad is the servers. This game has the worst servers ever and online is so much fun; PARK is great but only when you can connect it is very frustrating but the gameplay is realistic although you will miss some contested layups. It makes it realistic though and there is no more spam with superstars either its the computer or online. NBA 2K15 is a good game I would recommend it but prepare to deal with some booty servers.
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.
The music in this year's version leaves much to be desired. However, the gameplay makes up for it for the most part. Much better graphics than years past. In my opinion the MyPark feature makes the game, except for the tendency to lag.
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
Nba 2k14 was an OK game. And i was hoping that 2k15 would be better. But 2k15 is again OK. Myteam pack odds are GARBAGE. Some packs cost upwards of 9,000 VC. And $20 does not go very far on myteam. Mycareer is an ok mode, but upgrading your player in going to take a while if you don't buy VC, i recommend playing on Hall of fame difficulty so you can get the 2 times vc bonus after every game.
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
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.
