NBA 2K21 offers the chance at creating a professional basketball career, with a custom character, taking them along an incredible b-ball journey. You can also act as a manager, creating teams, trading players, and making sure you become the best damn manager in NBA history. But, we knew this already, so what did NBA 2K21 offer that we didn’t already know about? Not much, really.
NBA really shook the court up with NBA 2K19, and despite the unfortunate barrage of microtransactions and literal casino-style gambling in the game, at the core was a fantastic basketball experience. NBA 2K20 carried that on, and further propelled the franchise, making slight adjustments from the previous year, with a new story, but remained largely unchanged aside from a few graphical tweaks. Sadly, NBA 2K21 carried this tradition on with its latest iteration of the basketball simulator, feeling far too familiar from its previous year incarnation to really feel any significantly different.
...but with all the excitement of next-gen buzzing in the air, we expected a little, well, more.
Player movement is fluid throughout, especially when you start to experiment with being flashy on court with flared dribbling.
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
