Never before has a game consumed so much of my life, calling me back for more every time I put down the controller. This game is one of my all-time favorites, even though I’ve only had it for a few months. Any ball fan should get this game, it is the greatest basketball game of all-time. NBA 2K15 is a great game for many consoles, such as XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, PC, PLAYSTATION 3 and PLAYSTATION 4.
This year’s edition of NBA 2K, features reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant on the cover, and even includes a jamming playlist selected by Pharrell Williams himself. The graphics in this game are outstanding, sometimes it seems like im watching a real NBA game. This game even features commentary by actual NBA announcers Clark Kellogg, Doris Burke, Steve Kerr, Kevin Harlan, Ernie Johnson, and Shaquille O’Neal. The only problem with this, is Steve Kerr is currently the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, and 2K acknowledges that, but his voice is also used for an announcer.
NBA 2K15 features many different interesting game modes. MyGM, which enables players to experience being an NBA General Manager. This mode is very interesting, especially if you select fantasy draft. Creating your own team via fantasy draft is amazing. You can select your favorite players, then play games with the team you have created. Your goal is to become the GM of an NBA dynasty.
Another great game mode is MyCareer. MyCareer is easily the best storyline in all of NBA 2K15. After creating a player from scratch, you start as an undrafted player, trying to realize your goal of playing in the NBA. You can select any team to try out for (though some teams want you, you don’t need to perform well, while some teams don’t, you need to perform much better). The way to upgrade your player is simple, by playing games and performing well, you get coins. By upgrading your shooting, inside scoring, athlete, defender, and many other attributes, your player becomes better overall, which increases your chance of being an all-star or MVP. The best way to be an all-star or MVP, is to change the quarter lengths from 6 minutes, to 10 or 12. This way you can put up unbelievable stats and quickly become a top player in the NBA. Your goal is nearly impossible, to become the greatest player of all time. MyCareer is my favorite mode to play, I highly recommend it to any player.
In 2KTV, a new episode comes out every week with game tips, interviews with NBA stars and tips from the developers. NBA Today provides a simple game, allowing you to pick a team and then play a game with that roster. This mode allows you to play with or against friends. MyTeam is an interesting mode, you collect NBA cards and the players on your cards become part of your roster. Like always, you try to become the best.
Overall, NBA 2K15 is an amazing game, I would rate it a 9.5/10. The only real flaw is that sometimes the server will crash and there is one or two different glitches that rarely occur. I highly recommend NBA 2K15 to anybody who has an interest in basketball.
