This game is complete garbage. Don't even waste your time even if its on sale. MyCareer is total trash, there isn't one good thing about it. Screw 2k and this whole serires. They have been getting progressively worse and worse. Honestly should be considered a scam for how bad this game is.

Literally the worst game I've ever played.

Game does not respond to button presses in any reasonable amount of time, reverts all settings (controls, camera, etc.) to defaults every time I start the next game in MyCareer, and I spent more time watching cutscenes than I did actually playing the game.

-2/10, not worth the money even if you get it for 80% off during a Steam Sale.

The game is good, at times. Overall it's very mixed for me. The game DOES have a mind of it's own. So if you're losing and you can't seem to comeback it's because the game simply doesn't want you to. The reason it makes you lose and do bad is so you will do what? Spend more money. That's all this game is really about. 2k wants your money. The only reason really anyone plays these games is because our only other option is NBA Live. Which is even worse. So that's why 2k does and will continue to do us dirty with all of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t that goes on in it.

LIkes
1) The graphics look good when you put it on the hihghest or close to high, well that is if you can without your game dying graphically just because it wants to. It's not the graphics card, it's the game.
2) The game modes are pretty fun. I enjoyed playing each mode overall even with all of the cheese (What 2k players deem as ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t in the game)

Dislikes
1) All of the graphical glitches
2) It's only about money and who can pay the most to win. The game has turned into a pay to win, which is really sad
3) My player and My Career is very limited and feels well dumbed down to be casual. And 2k16 is just as bad with it at times. No custom jumpshots, that's the real thing that made people upset with mycareer.
4) The AI is beyond stupid. Seriously, you will ♥♥♥♥ your pants from how stupid it is. I've met highschool players who can play better. Your team mates act like little children who don't know what they're doing and can't do anything and miss wide open shots in their main shooting spots all of the time.
5) The animations ♥♥♥♥ every single person off. You get stuck and there's nothing you can do. Especially on lose ball. The game purposely slows you down so the other team can swoop in and get a quick jumpshot or layup just to ♥♥♥♥ you off. If you get stuck in animation just accept that you gave up 2 free points.
6) The game simply has a mind of it's own and if it wants to win it will. I remember being in the finals and a Center with a 25 3pt rating (that's the lowest it can be) scored a fading out of bounds 3 on the fast break after a bs turnover just to put the other team in the lead. If you see a player on the other team pull up randomly from a spot they don't normally shoot, just accept that the shot is going in. The NBA, where amazing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t happens.
7)Get used to being cheated out of a lot. Even if you're good, it's going to happen. The 2k Curse is a real thing.

Really this is the only option for a basketball game that you have. That's the sad part. I would only buy it if it goes on sale, which is what I did. It's only worth half of the price, because that's all that's there, half of the game. If you have time to waste it's worth the buy, as you can tell by how much I've played it, I have no life that's why I play it. I would maybe give it a 5/10 because still, you only get half of the game, given the score.

Pros
Very nice graphics
The addition of euroleague basketball is a good extra
Still better then NBA live
Cons
Ai is very poor makes things like My team unplayable
Players miss wide open lay ups and 2 pointers
Servers always go down and the game only works with connection
My player is awful youre whole team relies on you and the ai never takes open shots.
Charge fouls and reach in fouls are completely broken.
Far too many backcourt violations from the ai.

Good evening eveyone,

The review is on nba2k15.

The game, I still think its a good game however, there are alot of bugs in the game as with the cutscene, the commentator are starting to bug out as they stop mid though the game. and the patches don't work, if you are buying the game today. but as i said I'm not leaving out that the game is really beside all of that, the game has good graphics, great story mode in my career, and also leave a good impression for those how would want to play basketball, also getting inspired to go into the nba. 2k have made a game that how much you like it, loved it or hate it, keeps you coming for more.

I would recommend this game for those how just want to know what the game has to instore, for new 2k fans.

Don't pay full price for ANY 2K game.

Any online functions are on the clock the moment the game is released, and after they pull the plug on the servers, the online modes are gone thus leaving you with only half a game.

Also the coins you acquire via play are unusable, so don't waste your time.

I have a love/hate relationship with this game. Every time I play it, I get frustrated, but I love basketball and 2K is the only option on the market (EA doesn't have any idea on what they are doing). The teammate AI run around aimlessly, the opposing CPU will make heavily contested shots 9 times out of 10, and player tendencies don't mean anything. Most of the issues I have with the game only pertain to the top two difficulties.
PROS:
- Runs smooth
- Graphics are nice
- It's basketball
- Game modes are fun
CONS:
- Controller support is wack
- CPU plays at an unrealistic level on higher difficulties
- Teammates don't make sense
- 2K doesn't support the game, and each update made the game run worse
- The servers are dead
- Player animations are used on multiple people, and get stale
- Running plays doesn't work well
- The refs are biased in favor of the CPU
- CPU disregards player tendencies

With that said I still play this game quite a bit, and if it was $10 or less I would recommend it, but with 2k17 almost out, there really isn't any point to pay the $60. Hopefully 2K starts to support the PC version more!

Very fun game to play offline on MyCareer trying to make your way onto the best team on the game and maybe even be teammates some basketball legends such a Lebron James or Stephen Curry or Kobe Bryant, it is also very fun to play MyPark with friends and really test your abilities against real players

Started playing 2k when it first came out up til now and I'd have to say this one's my favorite!!! For a basketball simulation this is the closest thing you'll get to it. Most of the bad reviews have hardly any hours, which tells me they are used to the easy mode of NBA 2k12-'14. 10/10

P.S. Would buy this for my grandmother.

I bought and played NBA 2k14 and liked it (I played quite a few seasons here and there). So, when NBA 2k15 came out I thought it was going to be more of the same...gameplay-wise? Yes, I still love the game. BUT, being able to easily connect to servers, download up to date rosters, etc. are all important for my enjoyment. I have TRIED to play this game and like it, but I just can't do it. Other than playing quick-matches with out dated rosters, I have not been able to get anything to work properly with this game. Try to connect servers? Nope. Try to download (ANY) rosters (offical 2k ones or user-made)? Nope. Try to play Myplayer or MyGM for more than one sitting (again with out dated rosters)? Nope; the cycle goes start a season, save your progress, come back later, "save file corrupted." Worse than all this is that 2k has done absolutely NOTHING to help fix the problem and can't give me a proper reason for what I'm experiencing when I've contacted support. I've seen in several other forums that other people are having the same trouble. I bought this game when it came out and figured it was just launch issues and that they'd be patched out, but here, now, a year or so later, they same DAMN problems. I realize noone is likely to care about a review to a sports game that came out a year ago when the newest version is already out there, but I don't care, I needed to vent, that crap is hella frustrating...

NBA 2K15 is certainly frustrating at times, but throughout the life of the game I kept returning for more.

There really isn't any competition to the NBA 2K series, and 2K15 did it's job of lasting until the release of NBA 2K16 without feeling too dull.

I would recommend 2K15, but by the time you're reading this you're probably much better off buying NBA 2K16 (or newer), as the NBA 2K series stays relatively similar with a few improvements each year.

Beyond all other minor gripes (the kind of imperfections that almost every game has), there was one huge flaw that just bugged the hell out of me for the very short time I played. Because the players are just a series of pre-recorded animations, it constantly felt like my controller input was a half-second behind. Even with quick, agile players, I always felt like the player was too far behind my commands. This is especially frustrating on defense because it feels like you're playing through considerable lag, leading to wide open oppoents.

Some other minor gripes:
-graphics are a disappointment for a 2015 game
-shot meter gets hidden by players who aren't in the way of the shot, but rather in between the camera angle and the shooters feet(where the shot meter is). Missing shots because of this fact is annoying. The shot meter should be part of the HUD, not attached to the players feet, or it should move to the front layer whenever you're taking a shot.
-felt like there were a ton of controls to learn/remember. I didn't see any interactive tutorials to help you along either...just static videos to watch.
-55GB download. Jesus...is there a Library of Congress mode in here or something?

I know I've only played this game for less than an hour, but take that as more of a sign that I really didn't like anything I saw, and quit because it wasn't getting better the longer I played. I liked 2k13. That version felt much more accessible.

This game is quite cool. So many different customizations for you MyCareer character, there is a store to buy accessories,etc. for your MyPlayer. This game may lag on many computers as you need a good graphics card and may need improvement on the AI's.
