The highest rated* annual sports title of this console generation returns 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 XBOX ONE will continue the franchise’s tradition as “the gold standard of basketball simulation” (Sports Gamers Online) with unrivalled realism and true NBA gameplay.
Visual Concepts managed to improve an already perfect game, adding a new captivating free roaming mode and further improving animations, players character and gameplay. A must-have not just for NBA fans, but for any sports games lover.
NBA 2K18 returns to be the star of the sports games. The effort of Visual Concepts continues to surpass year after year is evident in this release to recreate the entire NBA perfectly, with The Neighborhood as a great novelty and a lot of content and game modes with which you will have endless hours of entertainment. All this with a spectacular graphical aspect.
NBA 2K18 is the best basketball game ever, with many possibilities for all NBA fans. This year the game includes huge changes with My Career and My GM modes, and you can spend plenty of hours playing these two modes. Of course, we see changes on the gameplay front, and new options like the All Time Teams.
There is some hits and misses in NBA 2K18 with some amazing graphics, stellar controls and a decent online experience that holds the core of the game together. However, there needs to be some work done in the custom experiences along with some coaching for the sportscasters to sound a lot more realistic and sincere rather than reading from a script. In the end though the core gameplay experience is superb and I can see why this series has been the go-to basketball game for quite sometime. NBA 2K18 will no doubt entertain and delight basketball fans and sports fans alike.
NBA 2K18 succeeds in delivering truly addictive gameplay that is pretty easy to pick up for newcomers, while long-time players will enjoy mastering the advanced techniques.
More than any sports video game before it, this title makes you ponder a sport as you’re playing the game, makes your mind kick into overdrive as you debate slices of basketball.
Maybe NBA 2K18 has been the king of the court for too long and now it’s getting bored. Instead of improving gameplay, it’s figuring out more ways to make money through MyCareer and MyTeam. It’s new Neighborhood functions as a metaphor for the entire game itself, in that it seems like a big addition to the game but you quickly realize it’s pretty much just an empty shopping mall and a distraction from the actual game.
