Hands-down NBA 2K17 offers the most authentic, best looking, best playing hoops game on the market today. This year’s game doesn’t disappoint on that front, not one bit. Its multitude of modes and gameplay refinements make it worth picking up for basketball fans.
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.
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.
