Oct 7, 2021NBA 2K22 definitely hasn't earned a foul of any type, but may not quite win a championship either. Let's say that NBA 2K22 won its conference title and might have made it to the finals, but not an NBA Championship this year. There's always something else to improve before championship status can be awarded. NBA 2K22 is much improved over the NBA 2K21 edition. As with most all yearly serial sports franchise computer games developing a completely new game engine takes a lot of work and time, work that probably couldn't be completed with the years. When taking into consideration the disappointments involving the 2021 edition, Vision Concepts and 2K Sports really did a good job with the 2022 game. It rolled around the rim and dropped in for two. Here's hoping that future editions can sink the three-pointer.

Sep 24, 2021I don’t want to have to work just to enjoy a game of basketball. I just...want to enjoy a game of basketball. In 2K22 the only place I can do that in peace is the meaningless collection of one-off “play now” modes.

Sep 12, 2021Honeslty, 2K is lame for releasing THE SAME version as last year. PC version needs a refresh too. Unplayable and pay to win.
Sep 13, 2021so 2k basically make some new UI, some new budget, a new roaster, and call it a day since like 2k14. same sh*tty AI, same sh*tty bug.
Sep 11, 2021They literally re-released the same game for the second year in a row. I put up with it last year, but not again. 2k treats PC players asThey literally re-released the same game for the second year in a row. I put up with it last year, but not again. 2k treats PC players as second-class citizens which I know based on console getting massive updates to the entire game while the only difference between this game and 2k21 is that they butchered the shot meter to make the game unplayable and they renamed a dozen badges. Last year playing the game was painful and the most frustrating thing I have ever done, and since 2k couldn't be bothered to change the gameplay in the slightest I am not going to reward them for their terrible practices as I have refunded the game. I bought 2k21 and last year and there is no sense in buying a terrible game twice. I cannot stress enough how good of a decision it is to not touch this game or this franchise with a 10-foot pole in its current state until full next gen is available, which I seriously doubt will ever happen.… Full Review »
