Ct Patriot: This Is the one game I have been waiting for. Since I don’t have an Xbox 1, just an old Xbox 360. I cannot get the new Madden. But honestly Madden 25 was so so bad, I returned it after 1 day. So back to NBA 2K15. Having played and purchased the last few years installments of this franchise. And loving the game. Probably the best sports game series I have ever encountered. Today is the release date of NBA 2K15. Sorry to say its going to have to wait til payday for me. If I’m Lucky. But the game looks pretty pretty good to me so far. Lets see what the experts have to say….
NBA 2K15 Review Roundup
We all know it’s going to look good, but how does this year’s entry in the long-running basketball sim series play?
October 8, 2014
GameSpot — 9/10
“NBA 2K15 isn’t as drastic a visual update as last year’s next-generation debut. Your friend sitting on the couch might not drool over the visual updates or expanded feature set, but the overhauled control scheme and helpful shot meter are the types of improvements basketball fans have been waiting for. Battling for space and effectively using a screen to set up a wide-open jumper is superbly satisfying, and while it can be a struggle to keep up on defense, the interaction between all 10 men on the court at any time has never looked or felt this real.” – Josiah Renaudin [Full review]
USA Today — 9/10
“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.” – Nick Schwartz[Full review]
“Overall, NBA 2K15 is another win for 2K Sports and you can really see where the future of NBA gaming is headed. They have things to fix but it’s a fluid process that will get better each year because the customers demand it. They’ve set the bar for the industry, which means they are their own competition. To get fans to buy a new $60 game each season means it has to be more than a roster update.” – Zach Harper [Full review]
Hardcore Gamer — 4/5
“The NBA 2K series continues to deliver the best professional basketball experience available on consoles and PCs. Though some strange visual bugs might rub a bit of shine off of an otherwise excellent package, there’s no denying how well NBA 2K15 plays. No game mode seems like it doesn’t belong, as every player should be able to find something that he or she adores. By improving both the shooting system and the RPG-esque MyPlayer mode, NBA 2K15 has taken the next step towards becoming the ideal sports game. You may not ever be able to run pick-and-rolls with Anthony Davis in real life, but you’re closer now than ever before.” – Matt Whittaker [Full review)
