전작 보다 그래픽의 변화는 적으나 기술이 더많아졌다.

농구를 좋아하는 사람으로써 인터뷰기능과 덩크 모션이 맘에들었다.

7/10. It's a basketball game, if you can't afford the latest version buy this one. This is one of the best iterations of the game I've found .It's fun and has a good control system.

(SPRINT) ♥♥♥♥♥♥ music, 3rd (SPRINT) party accounts, a (SPRINT) constant reminder to pay my cell phone bill (SPRINT), and pretty much every bug that went unfixed in the last 4 NBA games. Oh and I for one do not want to fornicate with Lebron James. Notice how every screenshot is of him? Not even one of him defending, he has the ball in every picture. Now imagine the whole game like that. The main feature of this glorious installment? You get to play his whole career! :O

Can I get a refund?

I really enjoy series and this game because the core mechanics are solid...but it could be so much better. I mainly play MyCareer and not online.

AI needs work, for one thing. 80% of the time it feels like my teammates don't understand spacing and would just bunch up right next to the ball handler. When the other team doubles you, they either fall asleep or run right up to you asking for the ball instead of cutting or getting into a scoring position. Also, when I drive, Cs and PFs that are decent mid-range shooters just clog the paint instead of reacting, but when the CPU penetrates, their teammates know to gtfo.

Graphically, I was realy disappointed at how many subpar faces were still kept from last year's game. Even LeBron (he's on game's cover for crying out loud) looks off. Chris Bosh looks like a balding Chinese dude that been chasing the dragon for way too long. Thankfully, there are mods to help with this.

Another thing that I dislike is the removal of play practicing. What's the big idea? There seems to be almost no point in taking it out of the game. It feels like plays break too often in this game and without that feature, it's hard to know which ones actually work consistently.

Shooting feels really inconsistent this year too. More often than not "A+ Perfect Release" just doesn't fall. I understand people saying that it's more realistic this way, but if a shot doesn't go in then that means it's off, so is it actually perfect? I would have rather been told that I was late or early on the timing instead of seeing perfect shots clank.

Bumping on the perimeter is annoying, but I know why it's there. On the other hand, when I back out of a drive, I feel like the momentum is way too strong, and I get sucked into my defender anyway. Same with using screens from the wings for some reason. Another problem I have with momentum is that sprinting on user-controlled players starts too late because from my perspective, the CPU can start sprinting on a dime.

Off-ball movement is my least favorite aspect of this game. On offense, I'm constantly running into teammates who evidently have tree trunks for legs. I'm alright with my defender preventing me from moving around the court, but on defense, they slip by me wayyy to easily in comparison. Also, I don't like how running right next to your man when he's the ball handler makes your controlled player do a weird slippery roundabout move, and again, momentum while running around on defense in general is annoying to deal with.

Finally, the in-game presentation is as good as always, but I really really really really wish there was an option to turn off those unskippable stats screens. The UI is kind of a slog to get through too. Like, just with the team-select screen - with so many teams, it'd be nice to have an option for a grid layout like you'd see in a fighting game.


Anyway, despite all that, I still managed to play 400+ hours of it and keep most of my hair, so I guess that's a testament to how good the main gameplay is.

I litterally know nothing about Basketball but I did get to create the "Tune Squad" from the 1996 classic "Space Jam", it was fun for a few hours but i don't know if it was really worth it. I guess if you're a huge basketball fan you should get it but for the average gamer it's not a must have. You can make a team of Michael Jordan from every year of his career and that's fun and it also could be a good game if you wanted to learn the rules of basketball. One of the biggest draw backs is that you can't play against your friends with your custom teams, this would be fun as there is variety of different player, team and stadium mods. All in all it's a pretty good game.

Great game. Best basketball game available.

I guess it must be the new "in thing" to give this a thumbs down; especially based on the number of hours some of them have put into it (would hate to see how much time they put into something that they recommend).

Pros
- Fluid gameplay
- Plays like the real game

Cons
- Need to have the time to play if you want to the games (set aside an hour to play a single game based on the timing that you'll want to play with as it plays at a normal pace); only a con because I never have that much time

Good game especially for basketball fans. I came here from a pirated version not any difference, the only difference in the pirated vs steam is multiplayer(which i cant find anyone to play with literally it said 2 players online). If you're not a pirate buy if you are don't not much more here. 1 very important note this is nothing like ps4 or xbox one this is the ps3/xbox 360 version which sucks ♥♥♥ i wanted it to be like ps4 cuz you get good multiplayer and an actual storyline
