1.It's Gorgeous

Every year, we wonder how NBA 2K could look any better. Then it gets released and we're blown away. This year's version is the best looking one yet. The player renders seem more realistic than ever and you'd be hard-pressed to find a difference between real LeBron James and his video game counterpart.

Everything looks fantastic. The big details like player renders and arenas are obvious but all of the little things work. Tattoos, lighting, hairstyles, accessories, and every detail you could think of was meticulously brought to life. They also added new animations that look sleek.

 

2.Roster Variety

You will simply never find a sports game with a deeper roster than this one. It's insane how many players can be used. You have the current NBA rosters, which would be enough for most games. But NBA 2K goes above and beyond. They include classic teams from all eras, Euroleague squads, and each franchise's All-Time teams.

To top it all off, this year saw the addition of more classic teams like the 2014 San Antonio Spurs and the 2007 Washington Wizards, as well as the All-Decade teams. You can start a MyLeague using the All-Time rosters and a fantasy draft. That means teams could end up with Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. Jason Kidd and LeBron James. The possibilities are almost endless.

 

3.The WNBA

Finally, we've got the inclusion of the WNBA in the NBA 2K franchise. NBA Live had it but not many people play that series. This wasn't a case of just including them either. Effort was put into this aspect of the game. You can play an entire season as a WNBA team or even use all of them if you want.

The renders are splendid and mostly look like the real life players. There's also plenty of work put in for presentation, with WNBA specific commentators. The gameplay with the ladies is a blast, as there seems to be a feeling of a more wide-open game. A highlight this year and we hope they can more aspects added next time around.

 

4.MyCareer Storyline

MyCareer is a mode that you either hate or love. Some players love getting to create their own baller and go through life as an NBA star. Others crave that experience but feel the AI suffers and it drags things down. One thing that usually delivers is the story and this year might be the best.

In the past, stars like Michael B. Jordan and Anthony Mackie lent their voices for this mode. NBA 2K20 features Idris Elba and Rosario Dawson giving great performances. The plot is engaging and incorporates real aspects like the draft combine and the G League in effective ways.

 

5.Realistic Gameplay

Despite what we said about clunky AI moments, the gameplay in this game is better than ever. The main reason for that is how realistic this one feels. There are all sorts of new animations that bring the game to life. A small player going against a big player feels the way it should and gives advantages and disadvantages both ways.
