I am glad I got this game as free in Epic games. If not, I shouldn't be able to play this. Who would want to play a game with the same feature all over again? I am an NBA fan, and I love 2K games since then. Although I am starting to tire out since I've been seeing the same things these past years. Come on 2K. You can be better than this.

NBA 2K21 suffers from the same issues that have held the series down for years. A poor MyCareer story, reused assets, shoddy servers, and an over-importance of VC/microtransactions. The one redeeming quality that NBA 2K21 can boast is its high-level gameplay. Luckily, that’s what you want most from a basketball sim.

One of the things that probably won’t be fixed beyond the next-gen version are the graphics. The lighting and some of the effects are great. Character models really invite you into the uncanny valley. I mean, they look realistic, until you look at things like the glassy eyes or plastic-y fabrics and skin. Then it just gets a little off-putting.

A recycled mess that features the same bugs, financial exploits, and cheats that PC players have had to suffer through for years. MyTeam has seen some great innovations but they are completely overshadowed by NBA 2K21's shortcomings.
