This haves and have-nots problem is magnified because people who buy the 'VC' or special editions of the game will get an instant advantage over others making it an unfair experience for those who refuse to buy add-ons in a full priced game. In closing, shame on 2K Sports, this tactic is a scam that needs to end. For me, this will be the last of the series I buy/play unless they change their ways, so long 2K. You may want to consider NBA Live 18 as an alternative.
First off, the graphics are far inferior to the PC version and the frame rate drop (especially in Mypark) makes me dizzy just looking around. Secondly, the "improvements" are terrible:
1) My Neighborhood - completely pointless. A menu driven system is fine, I don't need to be wandering the streets ala Grand Theft Auto in a sports game.
2) MyPark - the interface is horrible this year. The Top down view (where you get to see which courts are open and scores for games) is a massive step down. Last year, I was able to find squadmates from the top down view and run over to open courts. THis year, thanks to the stupid view and the staircases in mypark, good luck trying to navigate anywhere with that top down view. Again - WHY WHY WHY? It was perfectly fine last year. Additionally, I hate that they removed Old Town, Sunset, and Rivet, just as I migrated to a platform that had enough players to support them.
3) Gameplay - defense is utterly broken. CPU plays perfect D on you as you pump fake and do dribble moves. No problem though, just turbo right through the fool! Works every single time. No reason to string together nice dribble moves when you can just run through them. Ball hits the rim every single time, even on full court shots. CPU defenders recover way too quickly when they leave their man to double you. Passing to an open guy is pointless because of this.
4) Graphics - not much better than last year. Facescan works better though.
5) But of course - the major problem is the VC and badge grind. I have spent 50 hours on the game so far and have had fun maybe 1 hour of that 50. It's all been spent grinding my pathetic 60 rated loser to 79. I reckon I have another 40 hours to go before I get him to 95. Imagine: 90 hours of your life spent going to a "virtual gym" not having any fun - pushing buttons like a damned train lab rat for a cheese reward. VC creep has been more and more of a problem each year but this year, gamers are in open revolt.
I'm 41 with children. I'm too old for this. The few free hours I have, I don't want to be spending in a virtual freaking gym (esp when I'm getting fatter by the year in real life) grinding. This is the last year I'm playing video game bball if 2K doesn't find the error of their ways.
VC is needed for everything in MyCareer. Attribute upgrades, clothes, haircuts, all require VC. Fair enough. The problem is that the game doesn't give you enough by simply playing. To make matters worse, your MyPlayer character starts the game with a 60 overall rating. So you're basically stuck endlessly grinding away with a basketball player who probably wouldn't make the G-League.
Unless of course, you buy some VC.
Also, because VC doubles as XP, you now have a situation where players can literally pay to win. This creates unbalance in multiplayer modes involving your MyPlayer, as there is a huge gap between the “hardcore" crowd (that payed to level up) and the casual fans who just want to have fun (and not pay an extra $40 just to keep up).
MyGM mode is now “story" driven. If they are planning on making this a regular thing, they're going to need better writers. MyLeague continues to be the premier franchise mode.
All in all, I'd say wait for a price drop or buy it on ebay. It's a game worth playing, but predatory business tactics like 2K's VC shouldn't be tolerated. Too bad NBA Live still sucks.
