I don't understand how they made LA Noire like 10 years ago and it had one the best face mocap and animation to date and why these game companies dnt use the same technology. I dnt know cos the facial animations in these NBA games are so stiff they always throws me off given that it's supposed to be a graphical showcase🤦🏾

Unnecessary grinding? Literally the point of my career is to make your player better and better as time goes on. That's how it should be. The problem is the idiotic 2k community that complains about microtransactions, and then spends 100 bucks on vc.

If you don't buy the face mask in My player you catch the virtual version of Covid-19 which will makes match making and grinding extra difficult!😂😂😂

My 2k elitist friend just told me with a serious face that this game is bigger/more complex than games like Cyber punk, single player games...he was willing to spend 800 on a ps5 just for “next gen” 2k? Toxic group

If you’re going to buy the game, spend an extra 20 and get the mamba edition then you’ll be fine on VC. Grind after

3. Horrible button delay
4. Ridiculous microtransactions

Pretty much in the middle. 5/10

Micro transactions aren’t going anywhere in this series, why? Bc it makes millions and millions EVERY YEAR on them, bc people will spend. 2k is never just going to say, hey, let’s stop making money just bc game sites are lowering our scores. Why? Bc the nba 2k sells big EVERY YEAR. In ten years there will still be micro transactions and there will still be people crying about it. Unfortunately, that is the nature of the beast that we have all created.

The game is like this, its because there is no competitors right now when it comes to basketball video game. So even if the game is like a casino disguises as a basketball game, more people will buy the VC. Like the fruit cellphone 😆

the first sentence of this review is exactly the opposite of everyones expectations. new console means we expect jaw dropping change. it was the case with 2k14 ps4. This game looks like a patch. the city is interesting but please, the game looks the same. and that VC stockmarket should get regulated by relevant authorities. sh****y review deserves less than 7

The truth is if you have the next gen console and you have been a fan of 2k21, people will still buy this game. I have never purchased VC but I have never had a problem with the my player grind. Once you get to your 2nd and 3rd players, VC comes a lot easier. You can definitely still max your player to 95 in just one season.

Is it just me or the colors look very bland - greyish, almost like the game has a retro 70s filter on its presentation.

At least they're not spitting on us and telling us it's rain like EA. Yes microtransactions are weak, but at least if I wanna just start a League it's not the same franchise mode from 2012.
Aexerial - 5 dager siden
Simple, just don’t play MyCareer. MyTeam is easy f2p, you just have to utilize the locker codes. I was able to get a team filled with pink diamonds. I mostly play MyLeague, because it is a _basketball simulation_ game after all. I just like experimenting with different scenarios and seeing what happens. It’s really fun.

The myplayer grind is the best part of the 2k games. I wish that they would make it a little easier and completely remove micro transactions for anything in the game. Unfortunately I double they ever will

A lot of people are gonna try to hate on this because it isn't perfect, but at least 2k gave everyone a legit next gen game to pickup day 1 and be excited about. They at least tried new features, modes, etc to put work into the game.
Meanwhile if you enjoy football games, what is EA Sports doing for Madden for next gen? I think anyone who loves football would appreciate this type of effort instead of patting us on the back for updating player cards to show what team they played for🙄

Yall complain about everything every year about 2k but still play it and buy VC. 2k was all about the grind to 99 but yet ppl complain about it and VC came about. Yall want the easy road to 99 but get mad when it takes long. Just enjoy the game or go play something else.

Virtual currency (micro transactions) are only for the my player mode, not for the main game, AND you can progress your player without the virtual currency, it just takes longer.
