NBA 2K20 is the latest installment in the long-running basketball franchise, and while it makes some seriously impressive improvements and features, the essential components of the game are lacking or unrefined. I had a bittersweet time with NBA 2K20, and it's a shame because NBA 2K19 set the tone for what 2K20 could achieve.
The NBA titles have been seen as one of the greatest sports series in gaming, being praised for its realistic basketball gameplay, respect for the real-life NBA league, as well as the celebration of culture surrounding basketball. Trailers and marketing have shown otherwise, instead of focusing on the celebrities and flashy elements of the game, as well as the high production values of the title - but at the heart of it all, the soul is still there. NBA 2K20 is no exception, to be fair, and the MyCareer mode is quick to dish out NBA respect and history at every turn, which makes it all the more sad that the surrounding elements defile the nature of the title.
...whether you are playing in the Neighbourhood, NBA, or anywhere that has a court, the gameplay is great.
The cinematics are great though, and is where you will see most of the celebrity interactions...
The biggest problem, which is also a cause of a massive amount of glitches and bugs, is the online connectivity and server issues.
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
