Customer Reviews

Boomshakalka, please read

I've been playing NBA 2k since NBA 2k13 on the mobile. I recently purchased NBA 2k16 for the Xbox 1. I am a huge 2k fan. I've also been in the EA area for quite a bit of time. I've experienced faulty EA servers and bad connection for Madden and FIFA. But I still purchased this game for cross country flight starting in Bozeman. I first played in Bozeman and was immediately hooked. I always loved a good dunk in 2k but this took dunking to a whole new level. The commentating is amazing with "Boomshakalaka's" and "He on fires" blasting through my Xbox headphones. I loved the style of play and the fast paced action in this two-on-two experience. This game I recommend to anyone that loves too play basketball for fun. 2k users I know you'll disapprove of this game and so did I for a bit. But if you disapprove you're wrong. I have been playing this game for four hours straight and am still not tired of it. Get this game!!!!

Fun updates for everyone

Game is great! The only problem is that Klay Thompson isn't on the Warriors, Rondo isn't on the Kings, Isaiah Thomas isn't on Celtics. Overall, game is great, just need to work on updates. Add Donald Trump to democratic team, add The Great Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, Superhero team with Batman, Superman, Iron Man, etc., Cartoon teams with SpongeBob or Bugs Bunny, have team full of coaches, or even a celebrity team. Update rosters with new players/rookies. New uniforms, basketballs, locations such as blacktop, and planets. You should also be able to play in all star games, have slam dunk contests, and have three point contests and other all star Create your own players, My Team(not classic campaign), all star teams & legends. Update stats for players. Just work on update and it will be 10/10

Fun but gameplay lacks

This game can be a great deal of fun. However, the controls and gameplay are lacking. CPU has inherent advantages, such as being able to miss a block then immediately recover for a second block. Player cannot do this. Also CPU can can miss shoves and turn right around and be back in the action. When player misses a shove there is a 2 second delay before any action can be taken. I would also like the shooting "skill" to be more accurate. At beginning of game shots are easy to hit. Late in game shot jump shots are a risk to take because of high miss rate.
