The highest rated* annual sports title of this console generation comes to Nintendo Switch with NBA 2K18, featuring unparalleled authenticity and improvements on the court. Shape your MyPLAYER and write your own narrative, build your dream MyTEAM, take control of the league, or prove you’re the best of the best by competing against players from around the globe. NBA 2K18 NINTENDO SWITCH will continue the franchise’s tradition as “the gold standard of basketball simulation” (Sports Gamers Online) with unrivalled realism and true NBA gameplay.
NBA 2K18 is a welcome addition to the Switch library. It’s great to have realistic hoops back on a Nintendo platform, and 2K knocked it out of the park with their debut Switch title. It looks great, plays great, and if the kinks can get patched should be the start of a great franchise finally embracing a Nintendo platform.
An excellent basketball game that still has to be polished to achieve the greatness of the PS4, Xbox One & PC versions.
The ambition of bringing the whole NBA 2K experience to the Switch comes with some technical sacrifices, but if you're happy to choose portability over visuals, this version of NBA 2K18 offers everything you can ask for.
The Switch version of NBA 2K18 is a small big miracle, it's a pity that the 30 FPS hit the game veterans so hard.
Unlike with FIFA 18 you’ll get an almost complete package with NBA 2K18. Visually of course scaled down and with the “Neighborhood” as well as the story career confined to an online environment, Visual Concepts did their best to port the best basketball game on Nintendo’s hybrid system.
The Switch version of NBA 2K18 is rough around the edges, but the strong collection of core modes that make the game a perennial contender from sports game of the year are all here. Despite the drop in graphical fidelity, connectivity headaches when in handheld mode, and barren online modes, you’ll have a hard time finding a better basketball sim experience.
