NBA 2K Playgrounds 2  

 

I am so thankful Family Friendly Gaming had the money to purchase a copy of NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 on the PS4 after the PR and Marketing reps failed us so badly. This is a two on two basketball video game in the style of NBA JAM. Players earn coins by playing and spend those coins on packages that include players. Players can also be purchased for coins as well. NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 has the annoying free app feel to it.

The modes in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 are Exhibition Game, Get Packs, Daily Challenges, Playgrounds Championship, Tutorial, News, NBA Season, Cards Collection, Exhibition 3-point content, and Options. There is some cartoon violence in this game that families need to be aware of.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 looks okay, and it sounds okay. There is a lack of attire in some of the spectators watching the games. The success rate for shots is alive and well in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. There are cool things on the court like x2, and x3 for shots. We can also get power ups for the players from a variety of actions.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 can be a fun game if you are willing to put the time into it. That is the catch because the time it takes to unlock these characters is insane. Balance is missing in this department. There are enough different modes to keep the fanboy basketball enthusiast interested for awhile. As long as you enjoy the game play style in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.

Learning the moves in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is very important. I learned when to let go, where to shoot, and how to defend. Blocking those dunks can be nearly impossible. Jumping up to get a missed dunk is a bit easier. Plus you do not run the risk of getting knocked down.

I value NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 at ten dollars brand new. If all of the players were immediately unlockable, or there were way less to unlock that price would go up. I felt more aggressive after playing this game.
