To bigdoc85:-

Not so much easier but the response from controller input to how the car reacts feels smoother & more controlled whereas before cars would often have a tendency to oversteer. I don't use a Steering Wheel by the way only the standard 360 controller.

Thanks, Dazraz! When you say "slightly smoother" -- what do you mean by that? Easier to control the cars?

What an awesome write up. Much appreciated man

Sounds like from next year they will be trying to get the game out earlier in the season. Must be hard though, as they don't get a look at the new cars, liveries, performance etc until a week or 2 before the first race in Melbourne each year.

Too little, too late...even if he does something on the Jets.

To bigdoc85:-

2014 is slightly smoother with some improved AI but if you're more of a casual fan then picking up the cheaper 2013 game is probably the way to go. F1 2013 also has more Tracks on offer because of the Classic content.

Question -- given all of the classic content available in F1 2013, if I have no idea who the drivers (and really don't care), should I just get F1 2013 as opposed to 2014?

To ven0m43

I totally agree. If there is one great differentiation between PC gaming & Console gaming it is the user modifications on offer.
F1 2014 is a great game. Is it a new game? No. In that lies the argument of annually released games.
I'm a sucker for buying each release each year but I often find myself wondering if I'm justified in doing so.
ven0m43 on October 17, 2014 at 05:37 PM.
For me, the latest version of F1 201x always comes out too late. It usually comes out when the season is nearly over.

Yearly installments of sports game usually do not warrant a yearly purchase. Luckily some sports games are also released on the PC (NBA 2k, F1, Fifa). On the PC there is usually a great modding community that produces great visual and gameplay mods that fix/improves certain aspects of the game. For F1 there are mods that will update the season to the current one before the newest game comes out.

in m25, i would draft 290lb plus DT and move them to 34DE. they would often become the best 34DE in the game quickly.

Jadakiss88, yo I definitely understand using your teammates cause I'm a PG, and that's what I try to do but 2k makes my teammates play super horrible....I'll be posting a blog with my explanation and video to show proof...2k definitely needs some patches on my player for CPU teammates
Jadakiss88 on October 15, 2014 at 09:48 AM.
Alot of people have said the same thing...this game is probably the most sim entry to date. In the past you could win with Hero ball but if you could get your teammates hot you would dominate..now you actually have to use your teammates against decent teams.

are you updating as you go? Id love to see all the Blazers. I inputted CJ Mccollum and wes matthew edits and you nailed them imo.... HUGE difference!
macmizzle13 on October 14, 2014 at 01:09 PM.
Every time I save a season (offline) and try to load it up it says the file is corrupted. So it's a constant reset. Can't save rosters (offline) either. Sucks.

How come there are only two teams? I would like to update the Raptors first thank you!

itrey25 on October 13, 2014 at 08:59 PM.
what happened bruh ???
Tru, but I'm under the impression we will learn years from now EA, and 2k had a mutual agreement to not compete. So when thinking about taking down a giant, that just isn't the idea anymore. So the goal is to do the work for the big companies. Show them there is money to be made, and at the lady risk possible. You see how they aren't putting money into the servers, that actually bothers me and detours my entire idea. But if implementation of this is even hinted at, I believe they could raise over one million in Atleast 3months.

Jakeness23 on October 13, 2014 at 09:35 AM.
I've been clamor into for a generic football game that is fully customizable. We could create our own college or pro leagues, he'll even high school if you wanted. If 2K or SCEA or SOMEBODY could make some solid gameplay and also create a lot of customization tools for us, we could take down the EA/NFL monopoly.
Cabish on October 13, 2014 at 08:50 AM.
My hope in 2k is demolishing from they keep having the best looking and decent playing game,but keep having the same frilkin problems every damm year,the f'ing servers and just dumb dumb dumb,errors in gameplay ..like pressing a button and seeing no results happen on screen while sh't happens to you!!!!!!! And half working features and crap that irrelevant ,like vc

wferguson05 on October 12, 2014 at 08:19 PM.
My thing is, don't sit around and talk about it take some action. I contacted 2K support several times with my concerns before eventually returning my digital download via Microsoft. Hit them where it really hurts, the bottom line. If they see returns and people holding out for the competition like I am, they will get it together quicker than everybody buying the game and holding on until it works. Lets not forget that this title already has a negative history when it comes to the servers.
sticks323 on October 12, 2014 at 06:51 PM.
I thought I was the only one who hated the cut scenes and the substitutions. I don't know why we always have to say something to the coach and then watch a play happen. I finally got the face scan to work but I hate it also. I don't know if I like the bucket system yet because if you improve your defense your blocks and steals will be high no matter the position. Overall good write up, I like the +/- system you used.
Fernand126 on October 12, 2014 at 02:57 PM.
I love everything you said.
Most of the criticism is towards other aspects and I thought I was alone on having these impressions. Great, great job.

rudeworld on October 10, 2014 at 09:19 PM.
The game is better then advertised. The game itself (on the court) isn't the problem, its everything else that people have been complaining about, like the bad servers or parks or face scanning problem. Every year after the release of a 2k basketball game, gamers on this forum complain about foot planting and spacing and collision and all of that were worked on if not fixed. They've added other modes to our game which some may not like... But they dont take away from the multiplayer or the single player experiences.
BizDevConglomerate on October 10, 2014 at 05:15 PM.
Good article, I've been saying it for a while now;the companies need to release the games every other year, and just drop DLC in the mean time. Because that's pretty much what they do anyway. The game stays the same for 3-5yearz,only upgrading minimal things here and there. But they can same money and same us money by dropping disks bi/yearly. Hell, they can even make more money this way by adding extras like college hoops only for DLC, or to be played a certain way in conjunction with the NBA game. Or as an attachment to the NBA game for drafting players or tournament play. But the wait for these new game disks, and the results are unsatisfactory. Change has to come. Maybe ea or 2k or a new brand.
RipCityAndy on October 10, 2014 at 02:05 PM.
Preach! This game is not as good as advertised... not even close.
Cabish on October 10, 2014 at 11:41 AM.
It's the cash.they have made too much money
Don't get me wrong I can see 2k love for the sports
All I'm saying is they need to work on the things that's wrong first about the game before working on a ton load of crap to hope to hold and attract more consumers..
Where already here,and we don't cry for more features before the fire problems are fixed,,let's be to hell real.
Videogames developers always want to give us wtf we do not want .
Everybody want a need for speed underground but da keeps on giving us wtf we didn't ask for .all developers are saying u do not know what u want,try this and you will like it,while still avoiding the f'ing problem in the first damn place .!!!!

Wow, I'm really upset that they focuse all their time on this granny theft basketball 15 mode,I do not want cutscenes and mission and story mode in my basketball game,they could have done so much besides just adding features and wth is up with no connect then u cant play certain game modes,and the vc thing is straight nickel and diming,moboy want it heloooooooooo!!!!!!...corporation has ruined videogames,thanks to all those who didn't buy a DREAMCAST the last system tha run for the love of videogames.this is a tragedy,thinking best 2k ever and when it hits u feel like it's the best conn job ever done to you.

Ok I see what you were saying about the dunks. But so what. It's a game. 2k, fake dunks, super jumpers, cmon man be unbiased
SCOTTYP, DUDE! I feel you 100% about arcade gaming. I'm from the 80's bro, but look at this game a few times, then look at how the real players play. That Wade Dunk was signature. And the VC move was signature. I wonder what was wrong that they didn't want to release the game. Because even with bugs, I would've bought this. Really. This person playing th is must have made the game, by how good he's controlling the players. This was nice, the presentation, commentary, and the gameplay.

I cannot ride the 2k bootstraps because the have a pretty good game. But you can't deny the controls on 2k prior to 2k13 were too confusing for the busy man. By busy man, I mean someone who likes serious gaming, but isn't about to learn memorize all these controls to do a eurostep, or dink. No time for that. I wish Live would've released this game at some level. It was a good game.

BTW, 2k has some effed up animations. Watch in 2k15 when shooting free throws, the guys slide and not walk from the foul line to clap hands. Watch the same old animation when bringing the ball up the court, the act like their in quick sand. You still can't walk up to the three point line. Your either two steps behind it or on it. But I respect them for keeping it going. No missed releases. And that's consistency. Live is too Arrogant to appease the fans.

@ffaacc03 I didn't think think you were implying that at all my brother. I just wanted to be clear in case some others read it and view it that way. I also appreciate everyone's take on these topics.

@Fakename22 If you are a online gamer 90% of the time then these issues should affect you more so than others on here. The fact that Online play has taken some steps backwards in regards to these modes affect everyone who plays NBA simulation matchups. But, if you are basing your response on the ability of you playing park online and other modes that would warrant you being satisfied.

In all essence I am not 100% satisfied with gameplay, I do see some things that need tweaking still. But, I also see the improvements in gameplay from NBA 2K14, solely from that aspect I see their efforts and I shall support them by paying $195 to buy the game across all platforms (PS4, XBOX ONE and PC).
I agree with Fakename 22 about getting rid of the charge cheese.

I dont think they forget about the online people. What I wonder is how much does it cost for them have that company run their servers?

I think the cost of servers is something online folks dont take into consideration or how hard it must be to maintain them.

I'm not giving 2K an out but I think gamers need to be more open minded about this and no so one sided.

I will say I would like to see lobbies make a return. Playing random people is a turn off because you never know what kind of person you are playing.
I like the ELO style system idea, that definitely self corrects a lot of the cheap tactics that lobbies would surely introduce. I also like the activity bonus. Overall solid ideas, well thought out and they seem feasable to implement properly.
As a guy who plays 90% online the fact they killed the charge cheese and 131 is more than enough for me.

Different from what mike wang** wanted
You actually had control over every thing, instead of pressing x to steal, you could swipe with the gang you wanted. I have a problem with the intent tho. I feel like it was only put in the game to be different from want Luke want wanted as a form of spite. I definitely think it was salvageable
I remember playing this game... I may be a weirdo but I kinda like the direction they were going with the controls the whole everything on the sticks was weird but I started to catch on the left stick was feet and the right stick was for the hands
Lmao BizDevConglomerate. I hope your comment is not serious. I couldn't get through a minute of this video because of how bad it looked. Wade flying to the rim like he was magnetized, Vince Carter's leaping hop step into dunk. If you ar looking for an arcadey basketball game, Elite looked good and fun but if you are looking for an authentic basketball game then Elite is faaaar from it.

I can only hope Live 15 does not resemble this, and from the little we have seen I think it's safe to say it won't.
NowAndLaterCARZ on October 5, 2014 at 01:00 PM.
But to answer the "did 2k satisfy the crew heads" on ps4? my answer is NO. but i will say the rec center is alot better than the park on 2k14. but ill be picking up the ps3 version of 2k15 just for crew even if it is an eye-sore compared to ps4
NowAndLaterCARZ on October 5, 2014 at 12:55 PM.
first off, no leaderboards/records makes a big difference. its basically playing without a purpose in the long run without seeing your teams name in the hunt for the best crew in the world. then the wait times are going to suck as in crew you could jump seemlessly to the next game. plus there is no NBA atmosphere, crew was virtually like playing in the NBA with and against other human myplayers with announcers, fans, stadiums, etc. lastly, the rec center basically forces you to have 5 people online to play. how will stamina/fatigue work with no bench? in crew you could play with just you and a friend and pick an NBA team for your cpu. if your myplayer got tired, you could sub in NBA players. These are the things that made crew alot different than this rec center. @Brinkus how is the rec center an improved crew mode without all these things? whats improved aside from graphics and gameplay in the rec compared to crew? have you ever played crew?
My brother, I know you werent bashing them and hope you didnt think I implied it, I agree with all your proppositions with the exception of lobbies ... and even then, if they implement the ranking system you propposed, I may as well agree with having them back.

I would love to have something like a community from Madden, but much more expanded ... were your friends and my friends and their friends could all be a part of the community and played against or with, in a much easier manner than currently ... were the actions of us all would even impact our experiences, should we decided to.

I mean, could you imagine a trade rumor mill driven by rumors that come from what are the actual moves that happen on our friends leagues ? ... or that the players overalls (not the individual attributes) could vary reflecting the different edits of our community custom rosters ? ... or the stat tracking of games of our community guys vs other users ... the possibility of running tournaments, leagues, vs games, teammup games, JRC games and even park games with community members and even vs other communities ... anyways, a man can dream and hopefully this dream can come true further on.
Good write up. Just give online all the offline options and I would be content.

OMG they removed online leaderboards past 100?
I don't know what's the problem. This game looks better than 2k imo. And if live fihteen looks like this but next gen, and more polished ie) face scans, and physics, this should be an exciting year.

After seeing this I'm upset it wasn't released on target. This joint looks good.
I hope many who read understand, I'm not trying to bash 2K and if they think so I apologize because that wasn't my intent. I just want to inform them of what the Online Community has been asking for and hopefully we can make it possible real soon.

I definitely agree with you 100%, 2k is definitely working right now and 2K15 is looking great!!! They've expanded their team of developers and have added things we've never seen before.

I see your stance on lobbies, that's sort of why I came up with a solution of inserting an ELO system with the Nunn System. This would help prevent those who are highly skilled from taking advantage of those beneath their level and risking a loss. A win would gain little skill points but a loss would affect their rank tremendously. The V.I.P. System would give you a scouting report on how your opponent plays and if needed you may even matchup to test yourself against it. If that solution isn't viable then the installment of different rooms for the skill levels could be solution.
I agree that online nation has taken the smallest piece of the pie the last few years, then again, even when this year things seem to have gotten worse (no online association and some deminished version of 2k11 online leagues), I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

I mean, it is clearly evident that this iteration was focused on implementing users feedback. It is also evident that the recent inclussion of comunity members is aimed to improve the sim aspects of the game. I believe that these are signs of things to come, good things to us all, offline and online sim nation.

I am hopefull of the future reintegration of Online Association, am also hopefull of the changes that they claimed to be doing in order to improve the functionality and stability of online (I was one of those that many times suffered from not being able to play at all due to their restrictive servers and my also restrictive nat, no other game affected me this way).

While I dont personally agree with the reintegration of lobbies (as they used to serve for the contrary of what is propposed: they were primary used to inflate records vs newbies and unskilled users, also were used as a way of discrimination), thus I would be all in with the idea of having the ability to search games by difficulty, casual or sim, quarter length, etc.

I would love to see the leaderboards be approached as you stated, were Ws against skilled users are worth more, specially if played vs underdog teams (teams in bottom third, ratings wise) than just the mere notion of playing X amount of games. As stated, this approach severely affects the motivation and fun factors.

Finally I also agree with having back the feedback rating approach and the VIP feature that allowed you to play vs a friend (or yourself). Anyways, lets see what 2k15 brings and lets focus on what we need and want for 16.
