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)

Pros:
-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

Cons:
-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)
CPU:
-Anything above and equal i5 pretty much (I have i7)
RAM:
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..

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:
- NVIDIA GTX 770 2GB
- 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.

The game is good when it works.... The reason the servers are down is because 2k put the console (Xbox one and Ps4) (360 and ps3 have their own server) and pc versions on the same server, which was stupid on their part because there is no cross platform implemented in the game, so the server is down at the moment because the heavy traffic from all platforms is combined into one giant mess of a server... all we can do is wait

to check the status of the server's visit http://nba2k.com/status


Note: Servers are no longer down

Dont listen to the negitve reviews this is by far the best 2k basketball that's been released on PC, and its about time because we've been so use to getting the strip down version of the game. The graphics are top notch and I don't even have a great card. the game play has been very smooth and the realism just keeps making me wondering if this is a game or am I watching this on tv. ATM the servers are down, but since it's the first day I'm not going to complain because this game has so much to offer offline, not to mention I need practice.lol. Anyway don't be afraid at all to buy this year's game, and this coming from someone that after last years disappointment I decided that I'd probably never buy another 2k basketball game again until they fixed their issues. While I can't vouch for everything as the game has only been out for a few hours, I can say this Buy This Game It Rocks!!
