This game is absolutely wonderful! The only reasons why this game have a lot of e reviews is because they just don’t spend time in the game and/or they’re just complete trash. Most people complain about this game being pay to win and they can’t get past gold which is completely pathetic because I gotten a lot of amethyst and onyx cards from the events. The only pay to win situation in this game is the really good pink diamond cards. Other people complain about the defending... dude you literally just have to walk towards the person with the ball to do tight defense. What’s really dumb is when some reviewers say that’s the boys are “way too strong”, actually do the training and not the simulation sometimes smh. Oh and I almost forget about people complaining about the fact that there’s only 3 events. I’m honestly on there side with that one but all the positive things about this game overweight this. This game is overall pretty cool. Excellent graphics, great gameplay (except for the fact that there are only 2 main violations that led in the game and it’s hard to actually get a free throw but I understand that it’s only a mobile game), and this game has such a beautiful design.
So I really like this game. I think it has a lot of potential. I think the graphics are pretty good, and I like all of the challenges that this game provides for you to upgrade your team. The game play is pretty smooth in some regards, and I like the shooting mechanics and the look of the cards a lot. This game however needs to have some updates for many reasons. For one I have numerous times gotten the green shot meter, which indicates the ball has a higher chance of going in the net. For me the ball has never gone through the net once outside of the paint when I have gotten a green bar. Every shot you seem to shoot close to the basket usually goes in no matter how contested that player is. I think the game is relatively slow when fouls are called on opposing players, and the free throws are so drawn out and needs to be much faster. I think the “drills mode” is super fun and is a great way to get draft picks and collectables. I also think this game should lower the pack prices of their store. Some of them are outrageous and I know this game has the mentality for you to “grind” but I think it’s a bit too expensive if you’re trying to buy packs. Also I think the rewards for beating a season or getting draft picks should have a higher probability of packing s good player. I’m sure there will be many updates in the future, but I think this game is very fun and enjoyable.
First thing I like the graphics and somewhat the controls. But the problem is, it’s too paid to win. The only way to get gold+ players is to either use a lot of money or farm a lot. If I want to get a sapphire player, I would need sapphire rings which players can only get from season or league. It would be extremely difficult because it requires a good team above emerald. So that’s the first problem for me. The second problem is that the defense is garbage. Most of the times my players would not even be covering a man and staying inside the perimeter instead of covering up their man. It’s very irritating because the cpu is just going to be able to sink in a shot every time if my player doesn’t guard them. The game has a lot of potential, but the fact that it’s so paid to win and the defense isn’t that great makes this game fall off. The game is also barely even fair at all. Players miss open layups and shots while the CPU makes almost every shot. I have an emerald Donovan Mitchell and he can barely shoot for his life. How can you have someone open and never make it. It’s not fair. My release is barely off of perfect but it still misses. If it’s too late, then the shot is short. If it’s a little early, it still misses. Not even having a perfect release can help you because the CPU has hall of fame lockdown defense. You don’t even have a 50% chance of making a shot with a perfect release. This game definitely needs to be worked on.
It’s safe to say the graphics have had a massive improvement compared to NBALM. The characters look almost real, have facial animations and body animations not seen before on mobile, besides NBALM. The cutscenes make it all the more closer to a 2K experience, and the ones on the bench and crowd always react to my dunks, making it more exciting for me. The one thing about the gameplay that bothers all of us is the fact that you can barely shoot and make it in, even with a green shot. The defense is also pretty bad in some moments, but it doesn’t bother me much. Now the in-app purchases honestly kill me. There is almost no way to earn coins, besides doing league which only gives you 5 coins, and keep in mind that most packs are like 2,000 coins, and you only have stamina for three league matches, meaning you would have to cough up money, more than $40 I’d imagine if you want a slight chance of earning gold cards or above. The other way is through daily objectives, but even that’s a grind sometimes because you earn 35 coins for completing 5 daily objectives. The progression is very slow due to that and me not wanting to spend money on this. That progress will keep you with crappy cards for a while, but grind through it, and someday you’ll get good.
Really fun and addictive game. After reading some reviews, I have noticed some common themes. First of all, many have claimed that there is not a dribble stick. There is one, but it must be turned on in the options menu. Second, many people complain about stamina and being limited to a few games per hour. I think it’s a smart decision by 2k, as it gives casual players an advantage over pay-to-play. Third, many people complain about ratings. Ratings are not based on percentages, but rather seem to be based on a 1-100 scale. For example, a rating of 45 for three does not mean the player will make a three point shot 45% of the time. And fourth, a lot of people complain that they cannot progress easily by getting better players. I have found the best way to do this is through the weekend events. In order to do well in them, one must be semi-dedicated, but it will reward you without having to pay. All-in-all, a great game. I’m excited to see the new head to head mode. My one suggestion would be to make crafting a little bit rewarding. I haven’t ever been able to craft a better player than I already had. Keep up the good work!
