NBA 2K16 reviews and comments

Doesn't Meet Expectations It's by Far the worst Game in the Bunch I've ever played (have been there since 2k10). Don't Get me wrong, they still add more and more new cool Features, something you can't say of most other major sports game publishers (bsw. EA). For Example, MyGM mode has been extremely successful and is Great Fun ... Until you then have Control over the Players and now you should have Fun in the Match as well. But it is precisely the game principle-the Heart of every Game-that leaves something to be desired, the Game is almost more complex than when you stand on the basketball court yourself and the Game principle is, in contrast to other Games in the series, not necessarily so fun. Since 2k15 you have tried more and more to make the most realistic Feeling of Basketball possible, firstly from my Point of view that has started after the Back, since it is bsw. Hapshfrom! Unwised! Grade Errors, obvious Fouls and quite great AI decisions on Defence there. I always thought it was very great at 2k that the Offense was slightly better than the Defense or rather, it was easier to score. So the Game made significantly more Fun and made the Defense a steady challenge that demands the highest Concentration ... Oh yes, there were still Times:)

My Fanzit: For my career I find the Story of Freq very well at the Beginning and also done with a lot of Feeling and Detail, but I find that you don't need it. Especially since the Story only plays in the 1 Season. I am still waiting for a Story or at least more Possibilities of Interaction, which accompany you all the Time up to the Hall of Fame. Now you have your 1 Season behind and you can control everything selbest and in my Opinion it has been mega well implemented what the Creators promised. You no longer have that Monotonity from one Game at a time and maybe a little Drill for VC in between. With the Opportunity to do many different Things in the Off-days, the Games ienem gives a lot of Choice e.g. Connnections, training, Advertising Contracts, etc. And the best thing is you get rewarded, for example, in the Connections, where you get From a simple VC amount to a MeinTeam card from that player you're connected to. Also the Gym is made mega cool with the little Minigames giving you a little Boost for the next Game. However, here I can feel the Camera Guidance at the free Game in the Gym, which shows the Court from the Side and not in 2K Persepective. For me, it takes a little bit of the Appeal out longer to train in the Gym as I can't play well. But during the Drills are the mightiest Minigames in old 2K Perspective. Uac free Dining on my Court + of its own Design Option Makes the Game even more attractive. My Team and also at My Gm hasn't changed much, except for a few small Desing Changes and is still great to store. To Par I have to say has improved a lot as it has now become a lot more difficult. In 2k15 you could easily overrun a 1.80 PG with a 2.22 center, but now they have changed it so that you can even win against cheated Players. Everything was made much more realistic. Also I find the Chance to start a Team with his Friends and compete with this mega horny:D Negative about this Game are only In my Eyes only KLeinexists. It may be that the Commentators are just gone and you just notice the Courtnoise. Or a few Lags are also available at all (but VERY SELTEN). In Summary, I can say for those who are still undecided whether they want to get the Game that the Game has developed mega and now the most realistic NBA Game has been in a long time. All ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ improved and has stayed the same as before so no matter what you played hant it was kept as you know + a few improvements.
