Editors’ Notes

The greatest players! The shiniest courts!

Great Game!


First off the game is awesome! But something I would like to see change is in my career when you call for a pass and you’re wide open it shouldn’t be a bad pass call which takes away from the player grade for that game. I understand if I call for one when someone is in the paint making a move towards the basket. But not when a guard has dribbling in the same spot for 3 seconds and I’m wide open at the top of the key. Also when it’s late in the game and the other team presses and you’re open and call for a pass it hits with a bad pass every time that’s really frustrating!!! Also I would like to see an options to be able to call a timeout as a player in some situations before the end of the half I would like to advance it up the court then call a TO and get a in bound play in. Instead of running up the court with 10 seconds left and just throwing up a shot.
Association mode is awesome! But I don’t like that when you get 12 years or more in that rookies start out rated low 50’s some even in the 40’s. I’m not going to spend VC points to upgrade someone who is a 50 overall coming in it’s a waste of money and time. I would like to see a more fair rating coming in. The #1 - 4 pick were 60- high 70’s. But after that your in the 50’s the 5th pick shouldn’t be in the 50’s that’s unreal!!! Just stronger players coming in over the years would be nice! Other than that great game!

Great game but needs improvements

Braden boo boo

I have been playing mobile 2k since 2k11 and have seen many improvements. I really enjoyed association mode this year and I am obsessed with mycareer. Despite the good game there need to be some improvements
First, mycareer need some finishing touches big time. First the pass system is broken I am the best player on my team, sharpshooters, and scoring 42 ppg and when I am wide open and call for pass I get bad call and excessive call which mess up the grade a lot. Also you can not call for alley oops
In association mode you can’t resign players. This cause me to go from champion to 6 players on the team To a bunch of 60 overalls on my team this causes me to stop playing some. I also wish that you could add in some of the cool features we get on console. Because right now this is Not Close to console version
I hope you take this review and use some of it in the next updates or even 2k19. I have been a loyal 2k fan for now 7 years and hope you take account to my review. I believe with these edits and a few more this would become #1 on top charts. I already love this game and hope you use some of my suggestions. No hate though. Thank you for great games each year 2K
