If you believed the last 2k was good, wait until you pick up 2k16. The previous flaws of the 2K15 have been mostly fixed as the game has been more optimized for PC now. An addition of a cheesy, but still somewhat entertaining story to MyCareer certainly doesn't hurt. All the little additions to each game mode is just staggering to list. MyGM has been slightly improved with a fully-fleshed out off season with staff hiring wars and summer league. MyCareer is still fairly good but does have some flaws. Endorsements and live practices was a positive addition to the mode. The negatives are that the gameplay is still fairly flawed. High free-throw rated players missing their free-throws. MyCareer is slightly less customizable compared to last year's. Audio tends to cut out on some occasions. The lip-syncing is just straight awful. Asides those things, it is still a great game and is worth picking up. Just know that there is a serious lack of players to play against on PC compared to consoles.
This is the next instalment in the great NBA 2k series. The graphics are superb and life like, the animations are extremely smooth and fluid. The music is brilliant and the gameplay is exciting. It is easy to get into and learn but hard to master and impossible to get bored from it, it has a great sense of progress and just keeps you going. However, the MyCareer mode is very bad, it has many racial stereotypes and limits the customization variations and flexibility. It can be strange at times and ambiguous at other times. Also, you should use a controller because there are many problems with configuring keyboards and many times it will not work. And the game can have problems with you using your real names and the characters all have one voice. So all in all, a great game but with major flaws. Overall, 7/10.
