ESPN has collaborated with 2K games to bring about a fantastic new entry in the famed NBA 2K series. In September, NBA 2K16 will launch and continue the series traditions of realistic play and inspiring visuals.
What is Included This Time Around?
2K games continues the staples of the ESPN sport games. NBA 2K16 deploys a real simulation of basketball at the college level. Players can change settings when it comes to all the major features: commentary, half-time shows, real physics, replays, crowd moments, and anything else that goes into making the game a simulation.
How about the Controls?
The controls are almost identical in NBA 2K16 as they were in the ’15 iteration. Players use x (on the Playstation 4 version) to switch players and square to pass the ball. All controls can be customized using a variety of built-in gameplay control templates. These control settings will carry over to Internet play.
What is MyCareer Mode Like?
In a bizarre twist of events, film director Spike Lee helped develop the MyCareer mode. Though NBA 2K has had a career mode since 1999, this is potentially the most realized version to date. The game applies a few features that develop MyCareer in enthralling new directions. For one, the career moves from high School to college ball, and follows real-life profiles to develop a realistic depiction of this transition. Players can enjoy the full body scan that depicts players bulk and build. Previous games in the series would only look at the face, and do minor adjustments based on height. The MyCareer mode is very story-centric, and uses money on team building strategies as well as a narrative to bring the experience to another level. Game players can even select to follow one particular player, from High School to the pro leagues.
The game is available on current generation, Playstation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. Developers are also bringing it over to last generation, including Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
