NBA 2K17 News Post



As I dive into NBA 2K17, I'm reminded once again about how deep the modes in the game are. Right now, look for my full review of NBA 2K17 sometime around Tuesday.

For now, if you are unsure about whether you are jumping in or not, here's a look at a few quick impressions after a few games:
  • The gameplay and presentation still continue to be just so smooth. Its not like that wasn't expected but it does need to be stated for the record. There's a lot more to explore on the court but I'm definitely hooked to the on-court gameplay.
  • Look-wise, the game looks better with more varied body types as one addition. The other tweaks are adding nice touches as well. Overall the game looks a hair better than last year.
  • There are still instances where you get stuck in animations -- I had one instance at the end of a game I drove the lane and tried to fire up a quick shot at the buzzer and instead my player went into a lengthy drive-layup animation which resulted in time expiring before the shot went up. That wasn't particularly good considering I was in a position to win the game.
  • Commentary seems solid enough still. I haven't played enough to form a good judgement on it but I don't see any reason after a few more games I won't be coming away with a positive vibe.
  • The only mode I've dove into enough to write anything on has been MyPLAYER. The story and background are a fun setup but the mode has some serious issues which I think will leave me thinking its a negative this year. I'll need to play a bit more but it just feels the mode goes out of its way to mire you in tedium.
  • I played a game of 1-on-1 in MyPLAYER and it felt just so right. To me its impressive the game can play a good brand of basketball be it 5-on-5, 3-on-3, or 1-on-1. That means its getting a few things right with gameplay.
Final Thoughts

NBA 2K17 is looking like a winner on the court at least. The game right now seems to have done a lot more right than wrong, but we still have a lot of time until the final review is published. For now, I'm definitely optimistic about NBA 2K17's prospects.

This game is beautiful so far. 2K please don't kill it with the patches, PLEASE!

Yeah patches nowdays can hurt games barbecue a lot of the "this has to be patched" is based off online play against another human. dev's quickly react to online play and ppl not liking it and will actual REMOVE it instead of fixing it or worse making it more arcadey

i fear of the patch

I hate to point it out but body types man...They're horrible !
Why in the hell did they decide to make half the league undernourished !!!
Guys like Hayward, Antetokounmpo, Stanley Johnson to name a few or my fellow frenchies such as Lauvergne, Fournier or Batum are literally anorexic !

I hope they will correct it soon with via new patches. Unfortunately, I don't see users complaining about it !
Am I the only one ?!

Agreed but they do need to fix the sliding especially when players are sliding almost 5 feet when receiving inbound passes. Also, the CPU is taking way too many ill advised 3's. When you have players like Patrick Beverly taking steps back fade away 3's on a consistent basis, that's a problem imo.

The game is good but the subs and and tempo option in game is very hard and confusing

Only problem I have with body types this year is the noodle armed players (Ricky Rubio Cody Zeller Steph Curry Kevin Durant Etc.) I thought I could look past it BUT ITS definitely a eyesore

I mean, that seems unlikely.

This might be a little off topic but has anybody found a good slider set for realistic shooting % and stats the shooting percentages have been Extremly high thus far

Yeah it's a huge problem for me personally. It's seriously making me want to stop playing and play something else. I really hope it's addressed in the review and by the developers.

Seems like very few basketball games ever get rid of the sliding

It's the one thing that has drove me crazy over the years with basketball games.....

This game is great. Other than that I agree with you. What the hell is that, are they trying to confuse the ish out of us? What I love is the gameplay, once again they have far surpassed what I expected. If you dont have a shotblocker in the game, I will drive and post and drive and post on you until you find yourself a shotblocker. Plus you can no longer just randomly jump and try to block shots, you WILL foul out that way. I love the substitution breakdown, its kind of confusing but just hang in there and you'll figure it out. The lineup combinations are endless, and I only wish the cpu would use it also. I still dont like the trade and cpu signing logic. For rebuilding teams, they should be looking for draft picks in their trades. Teams that are 'buying' should be willing to trade picks. Right now the trade logic is still your 80 rated player for our 79 rated player. This is just not how the NBA works. I still have to veto about 95 percent of all cpu trades because theyre dumb. Thats about all I got so far for dislikes.

I have to ask, was the PC version upgrade as well? Or are we back to the "Cinderella before the ball" treatment?
 
# 18 MoneyOvaHuds @ 09/17/16 03:36 PM
This prob the best 2k I've ever played like seriously
 
# 19 Dione2014 @ 09/17/16 03:44 PM
They need to give us an option to either revert back or choose not to install the patches. That way if we don't like it we can revert back to pre patch. I'm talking offline play. Online is a different beast.

First thing I noticed was just how much better the skin tones, lighting and just overall look this game has. The different sounds of different arenas I goiter I wouldn't notice but it does stand out to me which is very cool but the rest of the audio is a mix bag and highly disappointing imo. The crowds are weird especially pre game and the different commentators have a lot of the same lines abs some of the audio sounds like a recording with the other person talking to it. I'll give 2k a slight pass on the commentators because having different groups is cool as hell and I don't think enough ppl give that as much praise as it deserves. But it's Def better than last year's game by a lot and the small gripes aren't game breaking but it's Def annoying
