Character Design

In love with the graphics, there amazing for a phone all that’s missing is the accuracy in the players looks that I think is a priority to fix in the next app update. Rookies like Mo Bamba, Robin Williams III, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Collin Sexton & Wendell Carter JR. don’t look like themselves. Make atleast the rookies look as sharp as Draymond Green because y’all have the potential to & it makes it more enjoyable to play the game when all the players or almost all of them look like themselves. Update the players as they are in real life (Hairstyles, Muscle Build, Play style). Fix the replay feature in 2K as well, in 2k17 they would show the Player of the Games highlights but not in this 2K! Other than that the game is Phenomenal! The gameplay is very realistic. Try to have the players wear actual branded shoes to please, & update the Alternative Jerseys to the ones actually used in the NBA designed by Nike, you still have the ones by Adidas don’t wait until 2K20. Love y’all 2K

Every year since they’ve done 2K for the iPhone, I’ve downloaded & hoped it won’t be trash. Wrong again. In fact this year is the biggest trash of all time. The controller update made it WORST! Either these people think everybody as 3 fingers like E.T, or whoever is in charge of the controls thinks everybody has hands the same size as basketball players. On top of that, if you use the default controls, you can’t make it a different size (it stays at medium), you can’t customize the button placement (you literally have to have your hand on top of the phone to press a “button”, when you do eventually pass it to the right player (after 5 tries of passing yo everybody else because the game ignores what direction you try to pass), now the shoot/ jump button will glow blue acknowledging you’re pressing it, but your player just stands these. Oh & you have to play the WHOLE GAME in MyPlayer. What a joke. I really wish apple allowed you to get refunds when you get jerked around on games like this. This will be the last time 2K EVER gets a dime from me.

Close to a 5 Star

Need a few fixes, could you please update the association league leaders there’s no chart it’s just every player bunched up together. Could you make where you can actually look up league leaders in categories? Love the graphics, gameplay and it’s actually competitive!! Haven’t made it to a draft in association so we’ll see about that. Fix the the league leaders I’ll give a 5. I’ve played 2k every year since it’s came out I’ve had the mobile versions as well this is the first mobile worth keeping last years was about a 3 Star this one is very close to being a 5. Keep in mind 2k you want people playing your game all the time so get these associations sinked over to the consoles make the association deep, get us online playing head to head on here and get them stats leaders!!!
