This is the end of the road for me.

I can't deal with 2k and its complete incompetence of a game franchise any longer. The incessant Myplayer Grind, Pay-to-win microtransactions, cheese animations, unskipable cringe worthy cut scenes, forced product placement, released at every launch date, has gone on for far too long. I really hoped 2k lived up to it's hype this year but as always, just more of the same. The NBA 2k Franchise is a shell of it's former self, and although previous games had its flaws, NBA 2k11 and 2k13 gave me some of the most memorable experiences I personally had on a sports game. It's really hard to see them taking such a far step back with every passing year. That is why this will be the last 2k I purchase, and suggest you all do the same. The only way 2k will ever put forth some effort in developing a good game again, is if we consumers boycott future games, until they put our demands first. Every single one of us, even the few who think this game is good, deserves better.

Shameless Greed

2K crossed the line this year with VC by aggressively shoving this microtransaction into everything involving your MyPlayer. Shame because the on-court gameplay is actually solid. But the game is built around VC. So you have two options: grind endlessly and earn a meager amount or buy the VC so you can actually have fun on MyCareer or MyPark. Skip this game or wait for a price drop.

Please pay 10,000 VC to increase this review to 3 stars

Previous versions of NBA 2k have been great, playing since NBA 2k11. But this one is full of microtransactions, requesting large amounts of VC. The mechanics of the actual basketball game are similar to previous versions. The My Career story line is embarrassing, and I mute the TV so much family doesn't hear how cringy it is. The worst part about the game is all the microtransactions that they have built in. The Neighborhood was added in so they could ad advertising to bill boards throughout the game. Don't buy the game. Use your $60 to buy stock in the company, because to them, making money is more important than making a good game.

awful. they are robbers. they give little VC out and make it easy to blow.. example 12min Qs in MYGM nets you a whopping 925 VC lol or pay 20$ in 2 clicks and you get.... 75000 LOL what greedy pigs. they are straight up robbing familys of money. If you play multiple modes its even worse. Myteam mode requires you to pay in either VC or MT and i got a whopping 175 MT for a rweard... their packs also are insanely priced. forcing you too buy VC to get a better team. Its gotta end.

I can handle the overwhelming cash grab that this game is, but a major developer cannot be allowed to release a game this faulty. MyPlayer was deleted 5 days ago, two of my friends players were also deleted and no feedback whatsoever. We're talking hundreds of dollars and hours of our time that has been outright stolen. It is simply unacceptable. DO NOT PURCHASE

limits abilities to force you to buy VC. never again

by far the absolute worst nba 2k title in history. shame on 2k for this greed induced trash. only buy this game if you need an excuse to end it all.. 17 years as a fan lost. microtransactions have killed all hopes of an enjoyable experience. its like they are dangling a carrot in front of your face, slowing your progress JUST enough to annoying you into just buying vc. I WILL NEVER BUY THIS GAME AGAIN!!! SHAMEFUL

I wish there was a no star option.

I've been playing 2K for over a decade and this is the last straw. Such a lazy group of developers must have made this game. from the constant patches, obsession of money with so much of the game being micro transaction driven and the insane amount of cutscenes shoving brands down our throats, so 2K can make even more money. Won't be pre-ordering 19 and might not even purchase at all if there isn't major improvements.

Worse than 17

Hard to believe 2k could make a game worse than 17. but they did! Gameplay is so sad. Matches you with people that have never played basketball in their entire life, regardless of your skill level. Thousands of players getting deleted and 2k's response is "Oh, well.* Don't understand why we are all dumb enough to spend money on these games every year thinking it will be bettter. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this game.

Got the early release of this game and initially was impressed. The dreaded lag out didnt seem to be an issue even on launch day. Gameplay was smooth and player controls no longer felt like you were just chaining canned animations together. That's where the good stops and things went very bad. Saved player data magically started disappearing. VC, badges, clothing, everything people had either purchased or spent hours grinding to get was suddenly just gone. If that wasn't bad enough, 2K's solution was to have players open a help ticket, which thousands of people did,including me. After more than 3 days of waiting, I haven't gotten so much as an update on my ticket. Judging by the twitter feed, I'm not the only one. Thousands of customers, out time and money,and stuck with broken game that cant be played because game saves are still disappearing, and 2K can't even bother giving an update!! Do not waste your money on this game or this company. They only care about getting your money!

Don't buy VC it's ruining 2k

Every year it's harder to actually earn VC instead of buying it. Every change in this years game is designed to encourage VC purchases. The release is also buggy and constantly crashes.
