NBA 2K17 doesn’t appear to be a huge upgrade from last year’s game. Some of the changes always feel like there’s a caveat attached to them, and others just don’t go deep enough. Throw in the age that Visual Concepts’ engine seems to be showing on the graphical side, and it feels like NBA 2K17 is just sitting back at this point.
Patrick TretinaSep 23, 2016
The game is polished from top to bottom and rises to the high expectations 2K16 put in place. The breakdown I’ve provided is only a small fraction of what the game offers. Online gameplay, Team USA basketball with both the 2016 and 1992 Dream Teams, Collegiate team integration, a solid soundtrack, and perhaps more replay value than you’ll know what to do with fill out the package. Bottom line: NBA 2K17 is a must for any fan of the franchise or the game of basketball.
Richard WalkerSep 29, 2016
A ludicrously polished and tight game of basketball, NBA 2K17 is representative of a series that's at the top of its game. There are a few flaws, as ever, but they pale into insignificance against the consistent excellence that shines through in almost every nook and cranny of NBA 2K17. This is a shoo-in for All-Star status.

At this point, EA is going to have to pull off a small miracle to compete with NBA 2K17. Visual Concepts is the uncontested developer of not only basketball games, but perhaps of all sports games, period. Every year seems to improve on the last.
Kat BaileySep 21, 2016
NBA 2K17 addresses most of my biggest issues from last year in cutting out canned animations and going back to basics with MyCareer, and it's still as polished as ever. It's easy to take its excellence for granted, but Visual Concepts' ambition and willingness to take risks keeps it from ever becoming stale. NBA 2K17 is the champion, and it's tough to see it losing that title anytime soon.
Chris SannerSep 19, 2016
Those quibbles aside, NBA 2K17 offers one of the most complete experiences in sports gaming. The gameplay is top notch, you have different and high-quality modes to experience that gameplay in, and the presentation package just screams NBA basketball. It has become easy to say, but NBA 2K17 is an early favorite for sports game of the year and is a must buy for basketball fans of all types.

NBA 2K17 is another rock-solid game in the franchise. It features worthwhile updates to the dribbling and shooting mechanics, and backs up those improvements off the court in ways that make me care about managing my team. All in all, I know NBA 2K17 will be in my gaming rotation for many months to come.
Rosh KellySep 21, 2016
NBA 2K17 is the greatest basketball game ever made, bar none. That said, it's not really accessible at first for newcomers, so keep that in mind; if you intend to venture into the MyCareer mode, be prepared for lots of unnecessary cutscenes, too.
Mat PagetSep 23, 2016
Despite its few drawbacks, NBA 2K17's excitement for basketball is contagious, and it's hard not to get wrapped up in it. Apart from the lacking 2KU mode and stiff recreations of commentators, the rest of the game looks great and plays even better. After finally devoting a significant amount of time to one of these games, I now see why it's such a well-regarded series, and it makes me wish that every sport got the same treatment that basketball does in NBA 2K17.
Matt PaprockiSep 20, 2016
NBA 2K17’s story falls apart in the end, despite the Hollywood talents, but luckily, created players still have plenty to do with their custom creation, both online and off. With 2K Pro-Am providing an intriguing look at 2K’s esports future, and despite the presence of microtransactions, the basis is there for something long term. Taken as a whole, NBA 2K17 is a worthy if subtle upgrade to an already extensive, even exhaustive, sports sim.
Matt BertzSep 21, 2016
In the world of sports sims, no other game feels like it’s even on the same level as NBA 2K17. Visual Concepts continues to embrace innovation and add benchmark-setting features for hardcore fans. With unrivaled gameplay, presentation, and game modes, 2K Sports’ latest hoops game is a must-play for all sports fans.
Rich GrishamSep 25, 2016
NBA 2K17 is once again a strong, diverse title that beautifully represents the style and culture of professional basketball and caters to a number of play styles.
Sam BrookeSep 26, 2016
The NBA 2K series has always been a hard one to improve upon since the revolutionary 2K14, but 2K17 still manages to better its predecessors, vastly improving the MyGM and MyLeague modes while refusing to tamper with a winning formula. MyCareer is once again a very enjoyable story, and general gameplay is as strong as ever. Simply put, NBA 2K17 is a trailblazer.
Kim OrremarkSep 21, 2016
NBA 2K17 is a great game that depicts the sport almost perfectly. Gameplay-wise it is wonderfully tight and intense, the graphics and sound only adding to the experience. Game modes leave nothing to be desired and jumping right into the season with the "Start Today" is very exciting.
Aran SuddiSep 23, 2016
NBA 2K17 is an excellent basketball game, but I wouldn’t say it’s a major step up over last year’s title. The player duos are a great addition, while there have been improvements to the animations and player contact, but that makes the game a bit slower and more methodical. At the same time MyCareer is a lot more fleshed out which is great, but again, things can feel slow at times and you can feel the grind and the push toward spending real money to get past that.

Despite a few minor irritations, such as the odd bug in a MyCareer training session or a slight oddity in the animations, NBA 2K17 is basketball at its absolute finest in gaming terms. While it's obviously difficult to rank it alongside games of yesteryear, like the more arcade-centric NBA Jam on the SNES, when it comes to simulating the game on modern hardware, this is the purest, most authentic experience out there, bar none.
Timothy NunesSep 30, 2016
The final product that is NBA 2K17 is exactly what basketball fans want, right down to Shaq at the commentating table, but in areas where it progressed it also felt some growing pains.
Rafael AznarSep 21, 2016
La dinastía de Visual Concepts sigue perpetuándose en el tiempo. NBA 2K17 es, con diferencia, el mejor simulador deportivo del año. No es sólo que su remozada jugabilidad sea excelsa o que sus modos den para toda la temporada, sino que cuida hasta el más mínimo detalle de la presentación audiovisual, para hacer las delicias de cualquier fan.

Un jugabilidad refinada, novedades en los modos de juego más importantes, nuevos equipos, mejoras audiovisuales, multitud de opciones multijugador offline y online, un modo de gestión deportiva tremendamente profundo, ligas personalizadas y un modo Mi Carrera con una historia completamente nueva y elementos jugables mejorados, son algunos de los factores que rápidamente podemos enumerar para remarcar que el nuevo título de la franquicia es el mejor simulador de baloncesto del mercado en PlayStation 4, Xbox One y PC.

Al igual que la mayoría de los juegos deportivos no deben esperar un cambio radical respecto a ediciones anteriores pues es prácticamente lo mismo pero con mejoras que hacen de la experiencia algo más cómodo y divertido; es cien por ciento recomendable para quienes nunca han jugado la serie que llevarán a casa el que quizá sigue siendo el mejor juego deportivo del mercado, también es recomendable al fan recurrente de la NBA que seguirá celebrando el deporte a través de un videojuego. Es por ello que respetamos el score que hemos dado a NBA 2K en varios años consecutivos porque realmente lo merece.
Salva FernándezSep 19, 2016
NBA 2k17 sigue reinando en el deporte virtual con otra entrega ejemplar a todos niveles. Estamos ante un producto con apenas fisuras tanto dentro como fuera de la pista, y un imprescindible para los amantes del básquet. El título ha pulido el sistema de juego (tiros a media distancia, tapones, nueva mecánica de tiro), manteniendo las virtudes del año pasado y añadiendo mayor fluidez.
Gerardo MorenoSep 27, 2016
NBA 2K17 es un manjar para todos los que aman el baloncesto. Está trabajado hasta el último bit , tiene modos de juego interesantes, una presentación impecable y un sistema de juego refinado al máximo. Aunque tengas la versión del año pasado, son tantas las mejoras y adiciones este año, que realmente vale la pena conseguirla.
Sergio MartínSep 20, 2016
Esta nueva entrega de NBA 2K no es la más revolucionaria ni la más sorprendente de los últimos tiempos pero, a pesar de eso, sigue siendo un simulador excelso, de lo mejor en cuanto a juegos deportivos se refiere. El nuevo sistema de lanzamientos va a dar que hablar (como siempre que se produce cualquier cambio de cierta importancia en este tipo de títulos), pero a nosotros nos ha convencido, así como las pequeñas mejoras aplicadas en la IA (sobre todo en defensa) y en el juego sin balón como las luchas por ganar la posición bajo el aro.
Jörg LuiblSep 22, 2016
NBA 2K17 ist ein gutes Basketballspiel. Aber zum ersten Mal seit einem gefühlten Jahrzehnt geht kein Award an 2K Sports. Erstens sehe ich spielerisch und technisch keine relevanten Fortschritte gegenüber NBA 2K16. Zweitens hatte mich sehr auf die neue Karriere gefreut, aber die enttäuscht: Sie ist mit ihren Ladezeiten zäh wie Kaugummi, ihr fehlt dramaturgische Spannung, man trifft kaum relevante Entscheidungen und es gibt einige Widersprüche, was das Sportliche betrifft.

Bei NBA 2K17 macht sich Stagnation breit. Das Gameplay hat sich im Vergleich zu letztem Jahr kaum verändert, die Neuerungen in den Modi sind sehr vorsichtig und bei der Karriere wurde viel Potential liegen gelassen. Trotzdem ist die Basketball-Simulation immer noch allen anderen Sportspielen überlegen. Die Präsentation ist eine Wucht, ihr habt immer perfekte Kontrolle über den Ball und die Modi-Vielfallt ist enorm.
Maxime ChaoOct 02, 2016
On ne sait pas où les mecs de chez Visual Concept puisent leurs forces et leur énergie pour réussir autant à se renouveler, mais force est de constater que cette année encore, ils ont cravaché dur pour continuer à améliorer leur jeu. Si graphiquement, le titre stagne (il demeure cependant le plus beau jeu de sport, toutes disciplines confondues), NBA 2K17 parvient à améliorer un peu plus son gameplay pour se rapprocher davantage de ce qu’on peut appeler la perfection.
Nicolas VerletSep 27, 2016
Entre les temps de chargement longuets, les accès serveur pour gérer la monnaie virtuelle, le grinding pousse-au-crime en mode Carrière, les passes auto et le ciblage du partenaire qui vous trahissent dans les moments importants, les interfaces lourdingues ou bien encore ce besoin impérieux de changer un peu la prise en main chaque saison, 2K rempile encore une fois avec un super jeu qui pourrait être encore meilleur et accessible aux néophytes.
EpyonSep 19, 2016
Avec son nouveau mode Carrière, son mode MyGM toujours plus fin et son gameplay plus technique que jamais, NBA 2K17 n'est pas seulement un meilleur jeu de basket que ces prédécesseurs, il est aussi beaucoup plus abordables, grâce à des commandes mieux pensées et un vrai tutoriel à même de leur apprendre les subtilités du basket.

Almeno tre o quattro novità importanti a livello di gameplay, rifiniture interessanti nella modalità carriera, cornice audiovisiva dei match potenziata, grafica ancora più curata, azione di gioco più veloce e dinamica. Sono solo alcune delle novità che rendono NBA 2K17 un titolo ancora più riuscito del predecessore, e quella di Visual Concepts non era certo una sfida facile da vincere.
Marco BianchiSep 21, 2016
NBA 2K17 è semplicemente il videogioco da avere per ogni appassionato di questo magnifico sport. Grazie a un gameplay profondo, in grado di sistemare tutti i problemini emersi durante la scorsa edizione, e ad una valanga di modalità, in grado di accontentare sia gli amanti del single player sia chi ama mettersi alla prova online, Nba 2K17 porterà via centinaia e centinaia di ore agli utenti. I ragazzi di Visual Concept sono dunque riusciti a stupirci per l'ennesima volta, portando sul mercato quello che è il miglior gioco sportivo di tutti i tempi.
Massimo ReinaSep 20, 2016
NBA 2K17 conferma la bontà di una serie che nonostante la mancanza di concorrenza, trova nella passione dei Visual Concepts le giuste motivazioni per crescere e migliorarsi sempre di più. Il lavoro certosino di questo team si sviluppo continua infatti a dare i suoi frutti, permettendo alla migliore simulazione di basket di sempre di compiere anche quest'anno un bel balzo in avanti in termini qualitativi, nonostante qualche peccatuccio veniale.
Hürcan KöseSep 19, 2016
NBA 2K17 hakkında daha söylenecek çok şey olduğuna eminim ancak sizin de bildiğiniz gibi bu çok büyük bir oyun ve yeni özellikleri de oynandıkça keşfedilecektir. MyTeam'de draft modunun bulunmayışı, bazı efsane oyuncuların eksikliği ve Kobe Bryant'ın reklamlarda gösterildiği kadar oyunda yer almayışı biraz can sıkıcı oluyor ancak genel çehresinden bakarsak 2K bu sene gerçekten iyi bir iş çıkarmışa benziyor.

NBA 2K17 is precies wat je ervan verwacht. De beste basketbal-sim die je kan kopen. NBA Live zal begin 2017 een gooi naar de titel doen, maar ik kan me haast niet voorstellen dat ze de concurrent af kunnen troeven. Visual Concepts heeft het digitale basketbal bijna geperfectioneerd. Basketbalfans moeten deze game dus gewoon halen. Niet basketbalfans overigens ook, want het is een prachtige sport die in de Benelux nog steeds niet populair genoeg is.

NBA od 2K nie zwalnia tempa. Co rok otrzymujemy najlepszą wersję wirtualnego basketu oraz solidnego kandydata do gry roku w kategorii „Sport”. Dotyczy to zarówno jakości trybów, w których można się bawić, jak i w samej rozgrywce. Ci bardziej marudni, mogą narzekać na to, że zmieniają się jedynie szczegóły, lecz jak powiedział mi kiedyś pewien mądry trener: „dobrego zawodnika od świetnego zawodnika odróżniają tylko szczegóły.”
