SportsGamerShow – NBA 2K15 Review
2K Sports is most known for its successful NBA 2K series with NBA 2K15 being the developer’s second attempt at recreating a fully immersive basketball video game experience on the PS4 and Xbox One.
With updated CPU AI, the addition of new animations, tweaked presentation elements and changes to its MyCareer, MyPark, My GM and Association modes, you would think NBA 2K15 would kill it on the virtual hardwood.
However, several major issues that include the unreliability of 2K’s servers prevent NBA 2K15 from achieving all star status.
