Graphics are a nice upgrade. Gameplay is smooth. Lack of quick resume support on the Series X is a real black eye.

Re: NBA 2K21 - Next-Gen Impressions

This game is nothing like old gen. If being built from the ground up means that this game is different in almost every important “basketball” area then i agree.

Shot contest is different. Shooting is different. On ball defense is different. Finishing in the paint and around the rim is different. Ball handling and blow byes are different.

Great job. Don’t mess it up with a huge patch

Re: NBA 2K21 - Next-Gen Impressions

OK, I did not get the current gen version so my impressions aren't referencing anything form that game. I turned the aiming off so I can't tell you anything about that either. My biggest take away after a couple of games and messing around in freestyle is control. I feel so much more in control of what I do on the court, be it shooting, dribbling, etc. You can really cut dudes up with slick handles. And the bodying up, it seems harder to get past a defender and more realistic in the way the lean on you as you turn a corner to the rack. Players feel the closest to real players than I have ever felt. I hear someone say every year how "players feel like they have weight." This is definitely the most I have felt like that. I made the mistake of changing the visuals to 1080p without knowing it and the game looked great. I changed to 4k and geezus, the fidelity was awesome. The court, reflections, lighting.... Damn. Like always, some players are spot on and others need work. I'm most disappointed in the classic teams as it looks like they've just been ported over from previous gen. Few players that I saw from the past have been updated. The game has a smoothness that I like and it feels just different enough for me to be excited about it. I'm sure guys will pick it apart but for this old casual gamer, I can rock with this. More later...

That was my first thought after playing a game while it installed! This game has some familiarities, but if definitely a different game. Period.
