Play an important function in a 2K game
« on: January 14, 2019, 02:57:41 AM »
Now the very first thing we all noticed, the moment we picked up that controller, is that the game is buttery smooth. We played the game on the Xbox One X and it felt as smooth as silk. It really has a terrific pace to it. 2K19 MT actually did a great job of producing another amazing basketball simulator, and we may safely state it is a huge step-up in contrast to the previous variants of the sport. It just feels right.

Turnovers are way more likely to happen now, because defence will finally play an important function in a 2K game. As much as we like how NBA 2K games flow and play, we could never get completely immersed into it because defence was pretty much non-existent.

This was largely due to this game's poor animation and physics system with players sifting through each other and a hell of a great deal of animation clipping. To some people, this may be a minor matter, but to us, it is almost a deal-breaker when it comes to immersion. And NBA 2K is, of course, a sports game, therefore immersion is of essential importance.But we are happy to report that this difficulty will almost completely be eradicated with the new sport, all thanks to the improved physics and player motion.

Like we mentioned, we played an unfinished version of the sport - sort of like an early build, and we tried out the display match manner, or, Play Now - as it is understood in 2K, and the next thing we want to talk about are the images, more specifically, the match's colour palette. A whole lot of people argued that NBA 2K19's colors looked washed out and downright cartoony. Regrettably, we thought so too. Though there was a slew of details to be appreciated, the total appearance of the game did not give a realistic sense.

However, we enjoyed what we saw at 2K19. The colours do not pop out like it had been an anime game, as was the case with 2K18. Even though it's still not exactly the same images style such as the one used in 2K14, it's still a phenomenal looking game, and also a definitive improvement during the previous year's version. The lighting and the courtroom appeared fantastic in 4K HDR, and the muscle definition of players is finally back. No longer lanky, Slenderman looking players. DeMarcus Cousins is now a major dude again, and Kawhi Leonard is as ripped as is.

So yeah, NBA 2K19 feels and looks excellent. Again, we got our hands on a restricted preview but these were a few things which we can affirm have been changed and improved, so there is a great deal to look forward to in the new game. NBA Live is also looking very promising with its debut of feminine ballers, but will it be good enough to dethrone 2K?
