  • Year after year it’s the same,it feels like players are always anchored to the ground when running.There is not any inertia at all.It’s like a joystick,they can move in all directions but always come back to the center.And this is a problem that sports games always had.

  • if you have PS5 and you played it, y’all know that it has a different feeling all around, I deadass played last gen and it just wasn’t the same visual wise, I think people just expect too much, you gotta understand, it’s still a video game, they can’t copy it 100% real life.

  • The monotony in a yearly release we 2K gamers feel is the same way the developers feel having to make this game. They need a new team or members who are enthusiastic to work on a sports game and can we get a new game engine while we’re at it to see how it could look and play with a different engine. Have a team come up with a concept on what they think a basketball game should embody when you play as a my player because this hasn’t been it in a long time. The story doesn’t matter nearly as much as we want to feel like that prodigy that next Lebron the way they hype up Zion and how the league searches for that next Lebron. The crowd nor the announcers really feel life like in response to certain things that occur in game. The parent company knows every year it’ll sell crazy regardless and they only care about VC purchases evident with how egregious My Team is this year, with my player the cut back after backlash but damn they did get sneaky trying to make you buy VC if you’re a my team player you can’t level up without players that you can only get with the weekly card packs. Get a two tip of East, two West, a high flyers, a possessed player to achieve these goals to level up for these in game perks, oh by the your ability to buy way the packs for the players expire in X amount of days. You can’t grind fast enough in either my player or my team to accumulate what these packs cost. Basketball isn’t at the heart of them making this game it’s simply a VC micro transaction device that changes just enough for the masses to want to buy it.

  • Really not to impressed. The graphics aren't a huge leap like 2k13 to 2k14.. the crowd could be alot better. Things like people walking in the crowd or the concession stand people walking handing out popcorn and drinks. Also the gameplay looks pretty much the same as current gen. Was expecting a lot more but hopefully we get that in 2k22.

  • We have the right to complain, this game is supposed to be realistic, If I wanted an arcade unrealistic game I’ll just go play Nba Jam or some other shit. Yeah ofc we’re all gonna play this cause there is no other basketball game. These developers are trash, they are nothing without us buying this shit and they don’t give us the little detail that we ask for. It doesn’t have to be a full-on perfect ass game but at least tweak some stuff to show you care and stop lying to us.

  • 2k, you know virtual basketball the betting simulator? I guess you do. It has to look more like this. Realistic movements and animations are the keys to success. Focus more on realistic gameplay. You still don't get it. Listen to your fans and audience. Simple marketing, meet the customers needs.

  • Maybe if the game wasn't so shitty then more people would've bought it. Graphics are good but, what good are graphics without good gameplay. It's just a rehash of 2k20 with a new coat on.

  • Where is the jump? Remember 2K13 to 2K14? Where is the jump? NPCs still look completely robotic, choppy and lost. Zion gets the and one and starts running into and through Draymond's torso clapping as if Draymond doesn't exist while Draymond starts complaining about the call to Zion's stomach. Steph is just idle dribbling for warmups staring into space, Ingram is just standing there staring into space before tip off as if he's being mind-controlled. The crowd has no emotion, they either stand up for absolutely no reason or just sit there all doing the same movement as the others. The NPC on offense still just runs to a given spot and stands there staring at you, getting in your way and making it impossible to simulate an actual game of basketball. The NPC on defense still sucks, if you watch around the 2 minute mark Jrue Holiday gets caught on an invisible screen and starts back pedaling for no reason, around 3 minutes Wiggins just freezes for no reason because the player did a simple behind the back move. To top it off the graphics look almost exactly the same and they just look like wax figures, despite all those screenshots making them look "more realistic than ever".

  • 0:40-0:52 WTF? How hard is to fix players moving at the same time side to side? Visual Concepts executive producer Erick Boenisch and gameplay director Mike Wang need to find a way to start fixing all the small things that has to do with animation, That's just not acceptable. You guys have to stop copy-pasting and start everything from scratch. The nba2k formula is getting old and keeps worsening as time pass.

  • Everything they be bragging about the game is what comes with every game on next gen and anything else new they could've put into current gen but didn't to make y'all pay up again haha watch yall get finessed again. This company will never see the full potential this game has, they have no innovation and are so disconnected from their community its laughable. This shit looks the exact same mechanically. Broken shot contests and lobs are broke still etc etc. Not getting a dollar outta me have fun with it. 2k is so money hungry they dont care how obvious it is just look at MyTeam.

  • I hope the game’s better in gameplay. I don’t give a **** about sweat. I played with the Bulls with Jordan. I can miss wide open shots, but the computer makes contested shots with ease. If it’s Jordan, Curry, Bird, or a player with a high shooting percentage, they’re not suppose to miss 4 times in a row wide open! The computer makes every shot. Sports games are garbage. Madden and NBA 2k!

  • Current gen player models minus the faces wbna included. Similar looking gameplay just slightly better animations (like some of the dunks and landings/step back js I have seen tho). Slightly improved graphics. Same unrealistic way the uniforms look on the players. Skin colors and just overall looks similar to current gen. My guess is a copy paste rebuild with some extras thrown in to make it look just different enough to make some think its next gen worthy.

Y'all gave us the most bullshitting cameras and only let us use all of them during Career games. Allow all the cameras to be picked
