Review of NBA 2K15, 7 months after the release, good timing amirite?

Anyway I'll go over the different parts of the game, the good, the bad and the ugly of the game's mechanic and such.

+ Fluent animations
+ Bench reactions, the bench players go nuts whenever you throw down the jam on the center
+ Helps giving the game it's amazing atmosphere
- The actual ball mid air can look like it's attached with a string to the basket. Which gives it a ugly look
- If your 5'8 guard has dunking capabilities it'll look weird as ♥♥♥♥.
- Teleporting players during cut scenes :/
9/10 overall

+ It learns from your way of game
+ Good in general
+- Overrated, when I picked this up I was expecting more from all the hype it has gotten.
- The coaching A.I has questionable time outs.

+ 10/10 nothing more to say

+ Defending is actually fun, YES, DEFENDING IS FUN, who'd know.
+ Offense is even more fun.
+ The shooting system is good and balanced to a certain degree. If your Durant is facing up against a good perimeter defender he'll have a harder time shooting from the 3, for example.
- Rebounding is too easy. Way too easy.

The review of the game content:

+ Realistic drafting
+ Realistic trading
+ Training camps
+ Staff have different traits to them, which is nice I guess.
- Annoying A.I, the coaches and players especially keep on nagging about not getting enough play time or training being too hard. Hell I've got a 85 overall Zach Lavine complaining about his 25MPG when I've got Damien lillard 96 overall playing 34MPG.
- The owner, sets unrealistic goals and gets whiny whenever you fail them.
- You can't retire numbers, which is really sad. This should definatily be implemented in to the gamemode.
- The progression of the players isn't all that good.
- 50K VC for buying the club. 50K. I'm in my 8th year as the GM of the Timberwolves, I've won 3 straight titles, gotten the most points in the season 4 times in a row. Spent around 5k VC on training camps and such. Yet I've only managed to gather a total of 15K VC...
--- Andrew wiggings broke 3 NBA records in a game, I wanted to see how it played out so I gave him the ball all the time. Turns out there's not even a scene from him breaking the record(s). He just scored the 101th point. Why is there no outburts. Dissapointment really.

Now this is the mode I've been playing for 200 hours
You start off as a undrafted rookie and you've got to train for different teams, yada yada yada.
+ Well voiced cutscenes (SOMETIMES)
+ Well made player editor, probably the best I've played around with.
+ You can buy animations from different legends and players (FOR VC)
- VC, ♥♥♥♥ the currency. This game is a money grab, honestly. You shouldn't be able to buy VC, it makes it so unfair when you're playing MyPark. And it's a nuisance to farm up all the VC.
- You become a starter for the club WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY (I can't express this enough) too easy. I got traded to LAC as a PG, 3 games and I was competing with CP3 for the starting position.
- You can't decide what type of player you want to be. As I've heard you could do in the previous games. Now you start of with the same stats. A 6'8 250lbs SF has the same attributes as a 6'6 175lbs SF.
- I can't buy uppgrades for one single attribute, I've got to buy a so called "pack". You get 1-3 points in each shooting attribute. Even if I just want to be a sharpshooter from 3.
- Coach gives too much + in teamgrade. You'll always end up with at least an A.

I haven't played much of this, but I've gathered some of my favorite players from history and present. Like Rondo, The Worm, KG, Paul Pierce and Andre Drummond. But from what I've played this game mode is the best out of the 3 in terms of most positive to negative aspects. Still the VC currency, which is a ♥♥♥♥♥.

I've yet to play a single online game apart from MyPark.
(Location isn't the most relevant, and the network not the best)

I still would want them to add a few things.
Add some more "legend teams" (Like the '01 Phillies and '94 Bulls which are already in the game).
Did I say add Kareem Abdul Jabbar? Do it.

Overall rating 8/10
The gamemodes need fixing, the "system A.I" (Don't know what to call it) needs some fixes, the VC... Please remove it.

Let's break this game down. Let me start this off with this is not a bad game. I REPEAT "THIS GAME IS NOT A BAD GAME".
Matter of fact this is the best sports game I have played. Let's break this down with a +/- pros and cons list. Make sure to check my updates!! Very important Update #9 (Final update)

-Great atmosphere
-Great gameplay
-Awesome Graphics
-Realism (The feel of being at the game is almost always there for me.)
-Game is actually very well done from what I have played.
-Great story... Yes story. In a sports game. Crazy
-Possibly the best 2K gameplay ever.
-Fluency with contollers is great

-Servers are down no VC is available for purchase as of right now. (It's just the first day I don't blame them)
-My VC that was promised when I pre-ordered the game is not available. (I think this is due to the servers)
-This game is a straight hard ♥♥♥ game they make your myplayer soooo hard to play with. (500 hours on 2K14 PC+360)
-Servers are empty (Servers are down as of now.
-(Update) MyTeam one of the most played game modes is unavailable due to the servers on PC as well.

There is so much fun to have here in this game. Arguably the best sports game saga and this one is taking a shot at all of the 2K games. The story in MyCareer is the most well polished story next to Shadow of Mordor. Is this game worth it? Absoulutley. Check for updates! I got this as soon as it came out so let me know what you guys think about the game!!

Update #2:
Purchasable VC is still not available in game. I think this is so the players can get to play there MyPlayers with out maxing them out instantly. Although this game has a lot of server side issues on PC, I still look forward to playing this game at it's final build which should be soon. I've been wanting to play MyPark but to servers this isn't aloud. Sadly. I'll keep updating as the game get's better.

Update#4 Specs:
My computer is very well made. Very cheap. A lot of people have added me recently asking if their computer can run this game. So lemme make this clear. Your graphics card has to be above a 640 Nvidia to run this game. I have issues running this game on my 650 Ti Boost. So let's break this down.
Graphics card minimum:
-650 regular (Not boost)
-Anything above and equal i5 pretty much (I have i7)
6GB at the least
Hard Drive:
At least 50GB of free space on your hardrive.

Update #5:
I finally got my Pre-Order. Got on and now the servers are off. Again. Still only the third day. Game's are hard to get going I understand. I'm still waiting on playing the full game which should be sometime this week. So prepare for updates.

Update #6: VC is here finally. I got my Pre-Order just a while ago. This game is sooo great. There are only two problems with the game and that happens to be there aren't a lot of players at MyPark. I cannot find any players servers are empty. Then I can't buy clothes right now but I think there is a bug so i'll wait. This game is getting better by the day.

Update #7:
Yes there is MyTeam. I meant there MyTeam servers aren't up. The 2K Servers are bugers. Now the servers are up and the game is almost at the final verdict with minor patches.

Update #8:
So many server issues. These issues have been all over the 2K support and Devs personal twitters. Unfortuantely I believe they're gonna do PC last. Also the MyPark's are always empty still. I met a person but only one person lol. I left. Also you can still not purchase clothes. Oh what a sad day for 2K...

Update #9:
Servers are back. You can pretty much do everything from this point on. The only issue I seem to face now is empty MyParks. I still haven't been able to play MyPark. It might be the park i play for the Sunset Beach Ballers is what I rep so if you wanna get dunked on feel free to come to my park >:)

Update #10 (Final):
Everything is working now. The game is worth every penny. The only issues I've had are gameplay issues. Like handling the ball is so hard there is no way you aren't getting a turnover. The game is very hard. But besides that nothing seems to bother me. MyPark is always buggy but they expierenced that last year too. So whatever. So final verdict... Is this game worth it? Yes. Is the game fun absoulutley. So if you get this game meet me on the court..

New: Lol people. If you expect to write reviews about this game because you can't run it on your ♥♥♥♥♥♥ 2008 laptop is not my fault and it's not 2Ks fault. You should know your computers limits. That goes to show why some of you can't run this game. Lol if your computer is good you can run this game don't run unless you know for a fact you can run it.

Summary of the gameplay in NBA 2K15: Opening Tip - Win every time because the AI is incapable of timing its jump.

First possession - Try to pass to open 3 point shooter, 3 point shooter AI ignores common-sense, runs into middle of the key where there are 3 other players. Pass gets aimed into cluster of players. Turnover.

Opposition Possession - You play good defense, you don't allow any easy scores. The AI holds the ball until the shot clock runs down to 4 seconds, then isolates their best player. Despite having a hand in the AI's face and terrible shot selection, the opposition will somehow make a 3 pointer as the shot clock expires.

2nd Possession - You move the ball around, avoiding the cheese as much as possible. Open 3 point shot to tie the game off a good screen, Steph Curry shooting. Despite the open shot for an excellent shooter, your shot will clank off the back rim and fall directly into the hands of your center. You fake a shot, try to get the defender up, and your center, I.E. LaMarcus Aldridge, an all-star and one of the best players at his position, will miss a wide-open layup.

Opposition Possession - You'll play excellent on-ball defense, but your AI defender will stand in one position and allow their player to get an open layup/dunk. If your center rotates, it will be completely pointless, because every time your center contests a shot, there's either a foul or a ridiculous contested layup make.

3rd Possession - By this point you're fustrated that you're down 4-0 despite doing nothing wrong. You pass to your power forward who has a ridiculous bumped up post-fadeaway rating, and exploit the overpowered post-offense system in the game. Congrats, you just cheesed your way to your first bucket.

Opposition Possession - Opposition finally misses a shot! It's too bad your center doesn't know how to box out; offensive rebound for them, 6-2. By now you're so angry that you can't be bothering risking getting cheesed again, so for the rest of the game you just use your best post player and best 3 point shooter and throw up shots 5-6 seconds into the shot clock all game.

Now rinse and repeat for 150 hours, pay $50 for VC so you can buy some over-priced and usually useless packs for your MyTeam. If you're lucky, you'll get David Lee or maybe, just maybe, Anthony Davis, who despite being a current top 3 NBA player, is incapable of making an open layup in this game.

I wish I could say it gets better when you play online, and in many ways, it does get better; the AI becomes a lesser factor for starters. However, everyone you play will be a 2K cheeser. I'm not exaggerating, literally everyone I've played is a cheeser. They will exploit the zig-zag 3 pointers, they will abuse the post, they will try to take charges at every chance they get (especially when you're dribbling up the court), every shot will fall their way and every shot you take will clank off the rim, wide open or not. Especially with Kobe, apparently he shoots 25% on any jump shot in this game. You'll get about 70% of your points on the fast break; in this game, alley-oops are a higher percentage shot than open 3-pointers. You get given a choice around half-time; stick to your principals and keep playing a clean game on your half, and lose by 25 points or more. Or, you could stoop to their level, and cheese them back, exploiting their own techniques. and maybe have a small chance of winning.

MyGM is a brilliant game mode and is actually realistic; too bad you can buy your way to winning regardless. EDIT - Also in MyGM, terrible players will demand trades because they're coming off the bench. I had SHANE LARKIN demand I trade him because I wasn't starting him over 91 overall Dante Exum. WHEN WOULD THAT EVER HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE? Joel Embiid demanded a trade because he "wasn't happy with his usage rate" even though I was giving him 33 minutes a game and he was averaging 27ppg. Every starter was unhappy with their usage rate, every bench player is unhappy with their minutes and "organisational role". Extremely unrealistic in that regard.

AND MYCAREER. If you don't start yourself off with $20-$50 of VC, you are in for a hell of a grind my friend. I'm talking 3 minutes a game, 100 VC a match struggle here, and upgrades aren't cheap either; usually around 2000 VC for a single upgrade. They took away a lot of the customization this year and restricted player overalls extremely, allowing only 1 upgrade per 7 games played once you hit the upgrade cap. Which is somewhat good for MyPark; but it's not like that even matters anyway because everyone on mypark just uses 7 foot small forwards with maxed out athleticism, so they have massive height advantage and the same speed as a 6'1 point guard (seriously, what the hell 2K?). Your teammates won't take open shots. I once got benched for about 15 games for literally no reason while averaging 37ppg, 12asp and 7rpg (Because I brought my way there, like a complete knob jockey). For some reason your assistant coach follows you to any team you go to, as well. In my 7th season, I still get called "Rookie" and every contract season is the exact same. It's literally like they expect you to rage quit after 10 games.

But all above all, the gameplay is worth playing, and is why you put up with this dog poop. It's actually a fun game under all the glaringly obvious flaws and easily the most realistic basketball simulator I've ever played. Lot's of fun playing with friends (but I guarantee all your friends are on console, correct)?

Don't expect anything to get fixed either. 2K won't listen to a damn thing you say, because they know there isn't any realistic competition on the basketball game market. Despite this, customers actually consider buying NBA Live, a god-awful piece of utter f**k-sauce, because this game is so fustrating. Yes, 2K, you treat your customers so poorly that they would consider buying a game made by EA over your overpriced garbage. Hell, if NBA Live was on PC, I'd take it into consideration if they made a half decent game. The 2K producers are decent enough people. People like Ronnie 2K, LD2K, all interact with the community, release fairly generous locker codes, listen to what they have to say; thus why it fustrates me so much that they don't fix the frustrating bugs and cheesy animations. I'm certainly not one to whinge and moan about a game like this. I've played plenty of buggy, unplayable, sometimes just flat out terrible games, but when I pay $89 USD for a game (Roughly $110 Australian), I expect better; and this game has so much potential to be an enjoyable experience, it's just the little things that are holding it back from reviews like this one.

9/10, I'm probably going to buy 2K16 and go through the exact same ♥♥♥♥ again.

EDIT: Now that I'm officially done playing this game, I can tell you with hindsight that the only thing to come out of this game for me is that I know all the lyrics to Aerosol Can.
P.S, ][G][ The Cure, please show a hint of maturity and stop abusing anybody who comments on this review.

I bought NBA 2K15 on 10/9/14. I was skeptical considering the mixed reviews, especially considering that most of the negative reviews from users were claiming that game-breaking bugs and server issues had ruined the game-play experience. Some people even said they had lost all their progress, including their pre-order bonuses. I can't promise that these bugs don't exist, but I haven't experienced any myself.

As of this writing, I've been playing 2K14 for roughly 8 hours. During that time I have only had it crash once, and I haven't experienced any graphical anomalies or bizarre glitches.

After playing the disappointing port of NBA 2K14 on PC, this year's edition is a major upgrade. The graphical overhaul was much needed (no more 2D crowd members), and the game looks fantastic. In addition, the mechanics have been seriously tuned up, and shooting feels much more natural now. Career mode is all new, and I personally think the changes (from the better voice acting to the more immersive story line) significantly improve the franchise.

There are still minor gripes about the game, like how sometimes in career mode you will be assigned a certain player to defend, but suddenly that assignment will switch to a player on the other side of the court, just as that totally unreachable player is shooting the ball, resulting in a b.s. "you allowed a player to score" penalty to your team grade. But, in all sincerity, most of my gripes are minor.

All in all, I'm vastly enjoying the game, and I think that 2K has done a great job making a respectable PC version of their basketball franchise. I can't promise that you won't have issues with your copy, and I won't blame you for exercising caution if you decide to wait and purchase this game after patch releases, but I personally don't regret spending the $60 at all.

My rig consists of:
- Intel Core i5 4590 CPU
- 8GB 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance
- 120GB Samsung EVO SSD
- 1TB 7200RPM WD HDD (where I have the game installed)
- Windows 8.1

I'm running everything on max settings with no studder or frame rate issues.

In general I'd say that the gameplay mechanics are quite user friendly particularly in comparison to the previous installments, and I'd say this is mainly because of the addition of the circular timing bar for shots; this allows players who are unable to assume the perfect release of a shot based on the animation only. This years installment still uses everything else that the other games used to have. Positively it still has the basics down which 2K Games have managed to make perfectly such as shooting, alley-ooping, etc However there are some improvements that could be made such as stealing could somehow be made easier with steals being somewhat frustrating when a percentage of the time leading to fouls. As most should know, the game on PC is now into the next-gen capabilities which means everything has improved in some form, however there were issues for many with frame rate lag on capable systems which seriously need to be fixed.


This is personally my favourite game mode on the NBA 2K series because it doesn't just feel like a repeat match system that ssome other sport sims seem to spew out. Don't get me wrong, I love to play general matches as much as the next person but I feel like after years of doing it I'd like something on top of that, that's what MyCareer is. This year being next-gen it has included proper cutscenes in contrast to the previous PC versions which would just feature interviews. It gives your character a proper storyline. It's obvious that as your character develops your skills develop and I actually liked the position they placed you in this year, skillfully. This being due to the fact as I felt developments were more fair and you didn't start of completely handicapped of your capabilities. Improvements to stats were definately felt unlike some of the other examples of the 2K series.


For the first time ever on the PC MyTeam has appeared on the list of game modes. I felt like it was really easy to get introduced to and the system is fairly simple and user-friendly, however does lack some advancement. What I mean is that I believe the auctioning system is a bit bland and too simple and needs improvement, I feel like the fact you can't trade with friends or contest your friends with each of your teams or even look at their teams is very dissapointing. In addition, with the participance of the problems of crashes and FPS lag, it really is difficult to enjoy the extent of this game mode with contracts being wasted etc. The whole idea and system is great but really needs improving and needs a polishing. A final note is that more players should be added from the start, the events to unlock players should be less frequent but more accessible for everyone and the amount of challenges should be vastly increased.


Just to note I'm not really into manager mode simulations, but this mode pleasantly suprised me. It's basically MyLeague but with more options such as interaction with players, interviews, game promotions and staff and player signings. This may all seem bland but 2K have managed to suck a manager mode sceptic like me into it. I believe this is because of the simplicity of it all and the difference between each choice you can make. If you get bored too quickly you can even sim the whole season if you don't want to playthroughout another season of basketball. The only negative is that the amount of things you can do is quite limited and to actually own a team is quite expensive for a game mode that I wouldn't really class as the main part of the game or the selling point.


Of course this game is now next-gen which means it has now gravely improved from previous versions on PC. Obviously for a simulation you're going to want some realism on the graphics compared to other games where you're a little less picky about it. I feel this game has managed to pull this off but only for high end PCs. Indeed you'll need a fairly decent PC to play this game anyway however even at the lowest or medium settings you can see the pixelated beards on James Harden for example and less importantly the fans are bland in appearance. Mostly everything else I'm impressed with though and feel that it's as real as it can get at the moment just with the note that it should be optimised more. Plus the option of special effects and reflection is great because it really gives the user a choice on what they see.

Controls & Movement:

Just like all the other games in the series the controls are really simple with the exclusion of some of the dunks and dribble moves and definately easy for beginners to learn. The controls have slightly changed since the last edition in the series but I haven't really felt angry about this change and have actually learnt the most this year than any other year since 2K12. Sometimes the controls can feel a bit jagged and unsmooth for example when coming off of a rebound or going for a block though. Something I've noticed since 2K12 too is that it's frustrating when teammates get in front of your dribbling and the ball is knocked loose or when you try and steal the ball and accidently tap the shoot button afterwards. A big note on the whole game in general though is that for keyboards this game is very difficult to play. Movement is fairly simple on keyboard and it's easy to pickup on shooting and passing but pretty much everything else is a stress, with even blocking being too hard to find. Until 2K makes the keyboard more compatible with the game I'd recommend using a Playstation or Xbox controller, preferably the latter.


For obviously being a basketball simulation the game isn't based around having a storyline but the MyCareer game mode has its own one. This storyline is pretty smart with the idea that you're excluded from the NBA draft and forced to join a team through a 10 day contract half way through the season with some pretty hilarious interactions with your agent. However, I feel that compared to last years story line on next gen consoles it felt really downgraded because first of all you couldn't even choose your preferred team as an option and significantly couldn't even win awards such as rookie of the year in your first season which was really shocking. Next year they need to find some way of providing a fresh experience for MyCareer without ruining the experience of your rookie season, also needing to provide a more interactive experience with the other team players before and after games, as well as giving more objective examples and have them influence your character. It'd also be interesting to see you character do stuff outside of basketball such as get a girlfriend, do a hobby, and have friends.


All in all I'd say that NBA 2K15 for PC is a fresh experience. The gameplay in general is great with the mechanics being slightly improved each year. It has also included new game modes and the MyCareer has in someways improved. A negative being the bad optimisation for PC leaving FPS lag in some cases. Being next-gen the graphics have severely improved but require good specs otherwise leaves a pixelated effect in some areas. Other than that it's as real as I feel it can get for now. For keyboard users the controls are very difficult but with the easy fix of using a controller that isn't too much of a problem and it's assumed you'd use one for a sports sim and they are fully supported. The MyCareer storyline is fresh but drastically needs to be improved as it excludes the benefits of the rookie season this year and that's one of the most important seasons of MyCareer and it could also include some background extras.

This year's upgrade to the graphics and animations are wonderful, and it's super that PC players are finally treated to the same experience that console gamers have. Unfortunately, this year's game was ultimately even more disappointing than the leftovers we got last year. In previous years, the majority of my game time was spent in the MyPlayer mode, which allows a player to create a basketball player and progress from rookie to hall-of-fame legend. This year, the campaign against "cheese" has effectively ruined the mode for me. Sure, eliminating holes in the AI is great for PVP games or higher difficulty settings, but the MyPlayer mode still doesn't offer any significant options to alter difficulty. I can absolutely understand why having a player shoot a perfect three with Kobe Bryant every time they have the ball might be undesirable in a player-versus-player match, but shot endurance working against a shooting guard trying to forge their legend in MyPlayer mode is absurd. Shot endurance absolutely destroys my enjoyment of my favorite mode and therefore sours me on the whole franchise. I could live with the jive-talking coaches and having an avatar that insists on ending every sentence with, "you feel me?" Yet, having a player engineered head to toe for shooting well and being completely unable to score regardless of space or distance by the end of the first half is wrong, stupid, and frustrating, you feel me?

This is the best Basketball simulators i have ever played, after playing most of the other NBA games i feel like the story is just one of the best. However it feels abit repetetive as the same coach says the same things. Otherwise it is just a great game totally worth buying when on sale.

They need to figure out a way to program some AI where you can set the difficulty to Superstar and HoF, but not have to play against players with stealth buffs.

What I mean by "stealth buffs" is that when you put the difficulty on high and play really good defense, the game decides it's going to put a buff on the next CPU player that takes a shot, granting 90% chance to go in, draw a foul, whatever. When this happens it creates a breaking of immersion that is impossible to ignore: you have guys like David Lee playing like they're Dirk Nowitzki in his prime.

This game still suffers from that problem years and years later where you will see big men do the craziest crap and hit impossible shots and basically turn into Dirk Nowitzki.
Draymond Green on Superstar is basically Kevin Durant.
