    NBA 2K15 can be considered better than its predecessor, whose quality was already great. It keeps the same excellent technical level, adding some - really necessary - menu design improvements and deeper modes. The MVP of the genre is here.

    It may have some online problems at the moment, but it's still the best sports game around. Period. With impressive graphics and a sharp gameplay, NBA 2K15 is still the king of the court.

    Another step closer to the perfect basketball game, and this year the beards are so life like, you really will want to stroke them.

    The latest rendition of the series does not introduce many changes to the gameplay, but offers so much content, that it’s almost impossible to play it all. [13/2014, p.72]

    It's accomplished, accurate and fun, but there are a few underlying problems. Still, purely as a basketball game, there isn't anything out there that's better than this. [Issue#250, p.58]

    I wish that NBA 2K15 didn’t have the netcode issues it has. Without them this would be a (pardon the pun) slamdunk purchase for all basketball fans.

    NBA 2K15 delivers a solid core basketball experience, particularly with MyCareer mode, which features real-life NBA player voices. But the game ties too much of the experience to its shoddy online component, which sabotages the experience—and even makes the game literally unplayable at times.

    The gameplay is refined and it feel a lot different of his predecessor .I Give the game a 9/10 because of the lack of content on create a player (you can't create a full resemblance of whoever like wwe (THQ/2K) did).
    The lack of DLEAGUE mode in myLeague/GM make the rookies development unmeasured.Other than that, the game is a must have. Money well-spend

    Personally I think this is a step back from last year. Player models look great other than that there is a new shot meter that is horrible.Personally I think this is a step back from last year. Player models look great other than that there is a new shot meter that is horrible. Open lanes and missed layups seem constant as well. Alley oops are just as bad and online lag still plagues this game. As a huge nba 2k fan im so disappointed with this year rendition. Also face scan is a marketing ploy it looks nothing like you.

    First of all, the following review is based on my experience with the MyTeam mode.

    It feels like the players are veeery slow. It is nearly impossible to take charges (it was too easy in 2k14 but now they **** up badly). I find it difficult to hit open 3s even with players like Teletovic and Prigioni. Try good 1 on 1 defence - you will not be able to. This is a serious issue. We know, that the 1-3-1 zone in 2k14 was kind of like cheating, well, now you can choose between a **** up 3-2 zone or a **** up 2-3 zone. Try to stick to the 1 on 1 defence, good luck with that. There are no manual coaching settings (or I have not found them). The ball goes through players' bodies? Nothing special. At some points it is very easy to take fouls but sometimes your opponent can do whatever he wants with your players and the refs do not call anything.

    THIS GAME IS A MAJOR DOWNGRADE TO 2K14, seriously, it is a joke.

    1.) Slow unresponsive controls.
    2.) 2K's response to making the game more difficult is to make the AI retarded:
    -- plays hot-potato with you and wont shoot open shots.
    -- AI defense is horrid.
    3.) You will have to score almost all of your team's points in mycareer if you want to win
    4.) Get ready to have the most lose balls ever, middle-school kids have more ball control and passing vision than this game mechanic can conjure.

    Final word: Play 2k13, vastly superior game to this POS. Upgraded to current-gen console for this game and wow... sadly disappointed. New EA company in the making.
