What Went Right in NBA 2K17, What Needs Improving in NBA 2K18


At this point, it feels like the NBA 2K series is in a perpetual state of success. I have enough faith in the series that even if no information was publicly available prior to the release date, I would still happily plop down $59.99 on day one to get the game.

But that doesnít mean NBA 2K17 is perfect. So what did the developers get right with 2K17 and what could they do better in 2K18? Letís take a look.

My biggest grip is that MyCareer is WAAAY too involved. The mode itself is great, although I'd like for it to be a little more variable on choices I make, and players that I like or don't like to play with.
However, to play this mode you literally have to play all 82 games, plus practice, plus cutscenes. Every year I play to about the all-star break and then lose interest. If I skip games then I cannot take place in the off day event between that game and the next so I either lose sponsorships, stand-up a teammate or player for an off day event, or skip practice and get yelled at by the coach.

A few years back you could play the "key games" and sim the rest, make it to where I can play 10-15 regular season games without any punishment and get to playoffs, or big games. This way you can play a career, I'd rather hit free agency, or get a max deal than play a back to back in Utah and Milwaukee in a Tues Wed in January.

I love 2k17 but they still leave no real feel of being a dominant big man imo. Smaller players like Isaiah Thomas can't beer utilized like their real life counter parts either. The lack of a fastbreak and how easily you can defend a 2 on 1 out 3 on 1 break against you is based in 17 also. Ball movement needs work it's good but it should be a lot easier to do the Houston type offense or the spurs always extra pass to beat the defense type passing. The arena and crowd sounds really need any overhaul also

Before anything else, they need to follow up on their promises and stop blatantly lying to the community. The amount of communication with us is already very, very low, but then when they do come out with some kind of news or something we aren't even sure if it's true or if we can believe them.

But from an Overall 2K perspective the complete silence and outright ignoring the mass outcry for information needs to change. It's one thing to hold info back to bait/tease and generate hype, but once the information is out, it needs to be clear and precise. Looking at other Publishers 2K Sports is severely lacking in this regards. The Community Managers are too focus on being celebrities, and seem to like the feeling of being in the know/keep information to themselves than informing the community (Almost a "I know something you dont" type of attitude)


- Spin MyCareer off into its own offline mode. Do not tie it to MyPark/Pro-Am.

- Combine MyPark/Pro-Am clothing back together. The fact that you have the buy the same piece for each mode is disgusting

-Rank Icon needs to be modified in someway to include record and teammate grade, so we can see it outside of opening a menu.

- Brink back 5v5 courts to every park. If its a server issue, which buy now I assume always is going to be a problem bring 4v4 to every park


What went right, is as you stated, Gameplay and Game Modes. Which is what makes NBA2K great
