With NBA 2K17 released, some gamers are easier found out that it just a incremental update to the previous game’s roster, in other word, NBA 2K17 is completely different game from NBA 2K16. Why is so different?
When previous NBA 2K16 released, it was almost the definitive edition on the PlayStation 4 and XboxOne, however, NBA 2K17 is more realistic and immersive basketball video game, no matter how its overall feeling or features, more importantly, the latest entry in the franchise that releases in about a day.
One of the latest game’s highlight is the new and improved MyCareer mode. Compared to the previous “NBA 2K16,” this year’s new game aims to bring in some really interesting storyline in the game that it could almost be associated with some RPG~esque feel in it.
On top of the new mode, “NBA 2K17” is also bringing in huge improvements in terms of overall gameplay experience by providing faster and smoother gameplay with easier controls. According to what Forbes already saw, the game may even pass for an actual “live” NBA game if watched from 15 feet away. That’s how smooth it can get.
“NBA 2K17” also gets a host of new animations added in the mix, which adds even more realism compared to the already immersive “NBA 2K16” last year. The controls provide players almost full control of what and how they want to handle the ball while dribbling.
However, this poses a bit of a challenge compared to the former game as it complicates just the ball handling process alone. Still, while complex at first, with practice, this can be used as a solid mechanic for pulling off ankle-breakers in the game.
In a word, “NBA 2K17” would seem to be a huge improvement over “NBA 2K16,” and getting it is not something fans and even non-enthusiasts can be skeptical about.
