NBA 2K21 is officially out today, but I only got my full review copy yesterday morning, so this inspection in advance will trickle over into next week (following the Labor Day weekend). But I was able to put in a decent number of hours and in that NBA 2K Coins time NBA 2K21 has made it clear that it's claimed the franchise's record of stellar on-court gameplay. Most of the upgrades are comparatively small, such as loose rebounds looking and feeling a lot more realistic, but they help add to an already strong foundation. The best aspect of NBA 2K21 so much is the controller tweaks, like the new goal meter, make for an all-new learning curve. Unfortunately, updates to the encompassing game modes appear fairly barebones.

The aim-meter mechanic is actually difficult to master, but has already led to a really satisfying one-on-one isolation victories. It is nice having the ability to use the ideal stick exclusively as a sculpting tool until I am ready to pull back to get a shot. The ability to size-up, which is tied to special dribbling animations for lots of the top players in the league, and isolate is much far better than ever. I spent a few hours experimenting with various playstyles, like easing the pick-and-roll using Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. It is tremendously rewarding to use Doncic's dimensions and footwork to make space - something I could not replicate with other guards around the team, like Seth Curry. While it's not completely new, NBA 2K21's ability to emulate players' playstyles is exceptional this year.

Nevertheless, there are already a few frustrating gameplay problems I have come across, too. Fastbreaks seem marginally improved, but participant spacing continues to be noticeably off. For example, even my finest three-point shooters will track within the three-point lineup on fast breaks when they'd be better off locating space in the corner. In general, it seems like NBA 2K21 has not fully adapted to the emphasis modern NBA basketball has put on the three-point line. Quick catch-and-shoots are not as common as they should be, and final out remains far too simple on protection.

Similarly frustrating is that the CPU's capacity to create problems for itself. In my short time with NBA 2K21, I've seen two backcourt violations on wide-open inbounds passes. It served as a jarring reminder I was not, in fact, experiencing a true game of NBA basketball.

From a cursory glance, MyLeague seems to have received almost zero upgrades. The manner has a decent set of features built into it , but this is actually the second year in a row with no striking improvements. As somebody who loves to Buy 2K MT deep-dive into franchise building, it's really disappointing that there's so little effort being put into the manner.
