NBA 2K18 

 

I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for NBA 2K18 on the Playstation 4. This basketball video game improves in a variety of forms, and fashions. The first thing I noticed about NBA 2K18 is the improved presentation. There are some aspects of NBA 2K18 that will be controversial. I will get into that in just a little bit. Did you see the videos Family Friendly Gaming did of this game? If not, please click here.

The graphics in NBA 2K18 are phenomenal. The announcers feel more fluid and realistic. There are now videos before the pre game show that relate to fanboys and the franchise. They sort of felt like commercials. The pre game show has been improved. Although their character models do not look that great. The basketball players look much better. So do the fans in the stands and the courts.

Issues families can have with NBA 2K18 is bad language, lack of attire, offensive songs, insults, and more. The game play in NBA 2K18 is fantastic. The one complaint we have here at Family Friendly Gaming is the streaks. When the momentum is against you it can be difficult to score. Those in and outs happen way more frequently when you are not already scoring.

NBA 2K18 is chock full with modes and reasons to replay. On top of the current NBA teams we also get classic NBA teams, all time NBA teams. The modes in NBA 2K18 are Play Now (Regular Exhibition, 2KU, Blacktop), My Career, My GM (offline), My League (online, offline), Start Today (offline), Single Season, Playoffs, Create A Character, Change Characters Appearance, View Current Roster, Change Roster, Create A Second Player, Change 2K Beats, Change Shoes, and Options.

There are plenty of game play adjustments families can make to NBA 2K18 so this game will fit their style. We have announcers that make comments in NBA 2K18 that some people will find offensive. Different people put a different value on certain acts by others. One person will praise certain behavior and another will condemn it. I heard multiple politically correct statements in NBA 2K18 that some will find highly offensive. I did not find any comments sharing a diverse viewpoint on those topics. Cheerleaders are present in NBA 2K18, and shown during many of the time outs.

I had issues skipping some of the cut scenes in NBA 2K18. The story line in My Career is much better in NBA 2K18. I am thankful 2K Sports went away from the dark story line. I found three to five songs in NBA 2K18 that I actually wanted to listen to. Songs can be turned on or off one at a time. Loading times in NBA 2K18 were a bit long. The download size of NBA 2K18 is fifty-one gigs. We are definitely recommending the physical copy edition for families. I saw a few graphical glitches here and there in NBA 2K18. I declare NBA 2K18 to be the best video game basketball game released this year.
