Gets worse every year
This has become the Madden of basketball. Seriously, they put out absolute filth that gets worse every year because they know that NBA Live is absolute garbage. The gameplay is horrendous on anything above Pro - all the baloney about the CPU being better (instead of making your CPU players worse) on harder levels was an absolute lie. I just finished a game where I had 5 missed open dunks. I don't think that has ever happened in the modern NBA. Also Kyle Lowry had a game with 17 rebounds and 10 offensive rebounds. Also something that has/will never happen. The CPU as always will have ridiculous things work in their favor to swing the score, no matter how unrealistic. Also, Kevin Durant, the cover character, looks like he is a cartoon character in this game. Next year might be my first Live year since the early 2000s....
Worst 2K game I've ever played
2K continues to get worse every year without any real competition from Live. The servers on the One are horrendous and the gameplay is just unbelievably frustrating. So many animations, airballed uncontested layups, throwing the ball at the backboard while trying to dunk. ALLEY-OOPS CANNOT BE STOPPED. My friend scored 56 points on me with Gordon Hayward shooting 28/28, all on alley-oops. Open 3-pointers are consistantly missed and the contested 30-footers are consistantly made in your face.Some parts of the game have improved but overall it's just an awful game.
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
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
Sucessful and Unsuccessful
The Xbox 360 version of this game is terrible. The same everything with a little bit of difference on the layout. The MyCareer feature for 360 is the same as always and is very unappealing to gamers. The Xbox one version is amazing. It is a huge difference from the 360 version and makes the game a thrilling experience. The MyCareer gives you a different perspective of game-play. The graphics are fathomable, and it seems like your really there. To summarize things up for you: Xbox 360 isn't good and Xbox one is amazing.
Servers are so bad
honestly, the game is really fun and the gameplay is probably one of my favorite. I love my career and my gm. But here's the bad part. During most of my my career games, I would be almost finished, and then it would randomly quit without saving. I would be up by 20 points and then I would have to play the game all over again. Also, there would always be an update every time I would turn the game on, but nothing ever changes. Also, a lot of the time the game freezes and force quits. I'm so sick of the service that I might never get another 2k game again. Fix this 2k!
2k14 for the xbox 360 was a fun game. It was a slight improvement from 2k13 and they added in the crew mode which my friends and I had a great time with. Then they released the xbox one version of the game and decided to take out crew mode and online association. I figured that would be alright for this year and next year they would bring everything back but lo and behold they didn't bring either back. I won't be getting this game unless they add a patch or something to include at least one of those two mode because on top of 2k14 being a total waste of my money, not just because of the lack of those modes but also the controls being poorly integrated and everything you did seemed delayed from the time you pressed a button and 2k's servers are ALWAYS god awful. I don't think NBA 2K15 will be the exception.
I Can Only Imagine...
The next-gen NBA 2K14 was AMAZING, I can only begin to imagine what new heights of creativity they will come up with next. Imagine the add ons and the new twists! MyCareer took a wonderful turn and I am really looking forward to what else they add to this mode!
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
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
