The NBA season is rapidly approaching and developer Visual Concepts has just released their latest addition to the NBA 2K series.
I'm disappointed in this one. Was hoping for better.
Seems like all the new next-gen sports games are disappointing: NHL15 is low on content, NBA2k15 is getting mixed reviews, I've got the new FIFA15 which is a huge disappointment (I much preferred FIFA14), and NFL15 also has the mixed reviews. It seems that many developers believe they can forget about gameplay, AI, content, etc etc, simply because they've got the next-gen graphics and the licenses. Sadly.
Hmm... the graphics definitely look good. Honestly, with the Lakers performing as badly as they are, I've lost interest in basketball. Thanks LA.
I love this game.
I like the game I just wish they would have polished it for next gen and left the tutorials in
It looks/plays great on PC. Probably because I haven't seriously played one since 2K12-13 on PS3.
2k servers are still crap
Online is it's only weak point but other then that 2k is a great game.
I wonder how 2k14 scored better, when 2k15 has improved from last year. A little odd to me.
It hasn't improved, really. The graphics actually look worse thanks to them not doing anything to improve them. Look at Collison. He's horrendous looking. Until 2K thinks they need to improve, they won't,
IMO, it has improved...slightly...but it does play a better game of basketball. The spacing on offense has been tweaked for the better. The AI for team defense is also slightly better. CPU AI moves the ball better and exploits the new spacing in a more natural way. There are still some legacy issues with collisions taking you out of plays. But, they did improve the game a bit. Graphically, I knew that there wouldn't be too much of a change because this is basically what sports games do. Graphics come in the first iteration...gameplay tweaks in the second.
Man I thought I was the only one thinking that about the graphics! I knew I wasn't crazy! Aside from the crappy servers though, I like it.
Fix the online on the ps4 now
Yeah I know. Also, I think the shot meter is more distracting than anything.
