Following the record-breaking launch of NBA 2K16, the NBA 2K franchise continues to stake its claim as the most authentic sports video game with NBA 2K17. As the franchise that “all sports video games should aspire to be” (GamesRadar), NBA 2K17 PS4 will take the game to new heights and continue to blur the lines between video game and reality. Pre-order NBA 2K17 to receive the Early Tip-Off.
NBA 2K17 addresses most of my biggest issues from last year in cutting out canned animations and going back to basics with MyCareer, and it's still as polished as ever. It's easy to take its excellence for granted, but Visual Concepts' ambition and willingness to take risks keeps it from ever becoming stale. NBA 2K17 is the champion, and it's tough to see it losing that title anytime soon.
If NBA 2K16 was already a highest level game, NBA 2K17 is even better, even if it requires patience and dedication to be really appreciated.
NBA 2k17 is more polished and solid than the last entries. They've made good gameplay changes, except in terms of steal mechanics. It's full of online and offline content, stunning visuals and it's deeper than you want.
2K crew did a great job in making NBA 2K17 even more indispensable than the previous one and to restrain any alternative offer.
A triumph of style, simulation, and originality that stays true to the culture of basketball. [Dec 2016, p.76]
Another year and another NBA game that offers plethora of modes and activities that are sure to keep you entertained throughout the upcoming year. A dominating sports simulation, for a reason.
Graphically, the game is hit or miss, littered with glitches and inconsistent quality seen in the player models. Throw in a lack of overall improvement year over year, and we’re left with a game that is good, but definitely not at the level we’re used to.
