"The Achilles heel of the 2k series has always been its shaky online infrastructure, and it remains to be seen whether or not that aspect of the game has truly improved from last year. In the online matches I played, there was noticeable lag that affected my timing on shots and movements on defense (trying to stay in front of a guard like Russell Westbrook is almost impossible). The game wasn’t unplayable by any stretch, but compared to the buttery-smooth gameplay against the AI, it’s a frustrating experience.
Sports video games are often criticized as $60 roster updates, but NBA 2k15 is a meaningful step forward for the franchise, and there’s enough new content here to please even the most hardcore 2k fans. Even if you only like basketball a little, if you have a next-gen console, you should play NBA 2k15."
