Clearly you havent tried shooting with Real Player %. Its bug city

the game wasnt/isnt a smooth launch on PC. I had to request a refund, the game quits to desktop when starting a game. Ive never had this issue before. Ill purchase the title again, once that issue is fixed.

I look forward to trying 2k21

The game definitely seems a little rushed. I'm noticing a few bugs & more player sliding than last year which is a disappointment.

There's a particular issue where the player waiting to receive an inbound pass after a made basket will glide back & forth or side to side while in a stand still position. It's an eyesore & immersion killer. Hopefully they can clean it up in a patch.

definitly, in 5 full games with 2K21 and i saw more **** like this than over the last 5 cumulative years.
Physics feel so scripted, strange/ unrealistic ball movement, calls for ghost fouls while as previous games flaws are still there.

Not good impressions as a 100% offline player after few hours.

I disagree on that .5 approach.

The game started as brand new NBA 2K21, out of the box i don't agree that it's 2k20.5 or anything, it's brand new. It showed its nuances in details a lot; but after the hotfix it regressed a bit and after numerous patches we'll see where it ends/lands then we may even label 2k20 all over.

That's 2k they mostly disrespect to their own creations of their own art, their own hard work just to cater casuals after the releases...

I don't care about the game play. I expect something different each year and try to adapt and enjoy it. I feel the overall lack of roster detail is absurd! The Celtics still have white accessories with away jerseys, John Collins still has the same look from 2 years ago, Miles Bridges' dunk tendencies don't reflect his real life athleticism. I don't understand why custom rosters are not allowed in MyCareer to edit player accessories only. Seeing how 2k doesn't keep the teams looking current.*
Adding the Hawks and Hornets new jerseys would've been nice for the 2020-2021 season.*
