2K Should Give Out Refunds For NBA 2K14

Maturity Crisis: We discuss the current state of the next generation version of NBA 2k14. There are glitches that leave parts of the game unplayable and they still have not been patched. (NBA 2K14, PS4, Xbox One)

I agree, the VC point system is broken and exploitative. They should give out much more IN GAME or makes things cost much less.

It should be used to allow people to pay to reach maximum game advancement instantly, not prevent people from reasonably advancing . Every mode requires it and every mode gives so little out. If it were an RPG and treated as experience, it would take inordinately long to level up.

The App help a little but not nearly enough and shouldn't be required. Keep VC for buying extras items like shoes, not advancing in game modes.

100 agree,2K14 released in bad shape and the game is still broken.

Maybe they're working on another title. NFL 2K??!

That was a very stupid comment.......

Nfl 2k would suck just as bad as Nba 2k

I havent come across any glitches or major issues, but mycareer takes forever to get your character better. The in game VC is a joke. They should do like Borderlands (they do it for golden keys) and have codes every other day for a free amount of credits.

They do have that if you download the app on your phone, the only issue is that its not tied to your MyPlayer, GM or Team. I hate it and I figure the 2K devs will fix this in the future. Micro Transactions are not cool for a disk based game.

Ive got the myNBA2K14 app. It shows mycareer player. You get a free envelope daily with a random amount of credits. Also you can pick games and if it wins, you get 50 credits per game. Unfortunately, that feature isnt working for android right now.

i have played a whole season in my GM mode, and it froze in the playoffs. I have had this problem for two weeks. Many other people have had this problem for awhile now. 2k still has not fixed it. I don't even know if they plan to fix GM mode.

I heard about this glitch but didn't want to believe it. I play all 82 games with 12 min quarters and it worries me to know that once I make it to a certain point I wont be able to advance. Seems they really dropped the ball with this one.

Let's not forget the secret DRM implementation... that was sneaky

It is sad that consumers have so little recourse for games in this condition. We cannot return them and only if the company agrees to an exhange, a refund, or there is an outcry online does anything get done. I am curious to see if the class action lawsuit against EA does anything.

If there's any payback at all its that I cant be the only one who really wants this game but refuses to buy it because of these issues. They've lost a sale to me & I certainly wont be the only one!

The people who need a refund are those who bought NBA Live. Lol
Ginesis  +   330d ago
I have both games and NBA Live isn't bad at all. Since its release they've been sending updates out to fix the issues and gameplay-wise its becoming pretty fun to play. Don't knock it till you play it extensively. J/s

I doubt I will see my money back, but I feel pretty much the same.
The game is beautiful, but man... I can't run my team as a GM unless I play as a player first, and for a while...or pay $.

I'm calling that BS, bull shat.

Let alone that it has to be online always. This is the main thing about the "future of gaming" that I really dislike.

It used to be, if you bought a game, that game would last a lifetime. It could still be played today as long as your system still ran, and your cartridge/disc was in good shape.

Yes I had to restart my game after I had to sim my 60-11 season because it froze or wouldn't play after that. And it hardly connects to the "servers"
Legion21  +   331d ago
This is all true, I like the 2k games but at this point they're just becoming greedy. Since no one is here to challenge them they basically do whatever they want. The worse part is things have gotten progressively worse with each iteration of the game.

I asked Microsoft for a refund for this game, I bought a digital copy of the game. Told them the game was unplayable... They refunded my money. I hope NBA2k15 doesn't have all these problems.
Kane22  +   330d ago
personally the only thing im mad about. is that some features are missing and nor 2k or a single reviewer mentioned that at all. i felt ripped off buying a full price game with missing features.
jaymacx  +   330d ago
Thats how nintendo console owners feel when we buy 3rd party games with missing features. I own this game for PS4. But was upset that the pc didn't get next gen treatment. I usually buy the pc version because of the quality mods. As for missing features what happened to the all star weekend and that LeBron James mode?

I haven't played 2k14 much at all. Mapping so many moves to the right analog stick is not as intuitive to me. Hearing this inspires me even less to want to play more. It is a beautiful game but I am repulsed with this money gouging, free to play/micro transaction model in a $60 retail game.

I got a refund on my copy. I downloaded mines off of the Xbox One store. I called Microsoft and told them about the bugs and glitches and they gave me a refund. If you downloaded it on the Xbox one just call Microsoft they will give you a refund
