NBA 2K21 hasn't completely adapted to the accent modern NBA


  • I've got two NBA 2K21 MT children that aren't really old enough to perform Madden yet. Soon, thoug...

    NBA 2K21 is officially out today, but I only got my full review copy yesterday , so this inspection in progress will spill into next week (after the Labor Day weekend). However, I managed to devote a decent number of hours and at that time NBA 2K21 has made it crystal clear that it has claimed the franchise's record of stellar on-court gameplay. The majority of the upgrades are comparatively modest, like loose rebounds feeling and looking far more realistic, but they also help add to an already solid foundation. The very best aspect of NBA 2K21 so far is the controller tweaks, like the new aim meter, make for an all-new learning curve. Regrettably, upgrades to the surrounding game modes seem fairly barebones.

    The aim-meter mechanic is really difficult to master, but has already led to a really satisfying one-on-one isolation successes. It is nice being able to use the ideal stick exclusively as a dribbling tool until I'm ready to pull back for a shot. The capability to size-up, which is tied to unique dribbling animations for lots of the best players in the league, and isolate is better than ever. I spent a couple of hours experimenting with various playstyles, like easing the pick-and-roll using Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. It's tremendously rewarding to use Doncic's size and footwork to create space - something I could not replicate with other guards around the team, like Seth Curry. While it is not completely new, NBA 2K21's capability to entertain gamers' playstyles is exceptional this year.

    Nevertheless, there are already a couple annoying gameplay problems I have come across, also. Fastbreaks seem marginally enhanced, but participant spacing is still noticeably off. For instance, even my finest three-point shooters will track within the three-point line on fast breaks when they would be better off finding space in the corner. In general, it seems like NBA 2K21 hasn't completely adapted to the accent modern NBA basketball has put on the three-point line. Quick catch-and-shoots are not as prevalent as they should be, and closing out is still far too simple on Buy NBA 2K MT Coins defense.
