NBA 2K15 Xbox 360 is Game because I love the NBA and was quite excited for the release of NBA 2K15 and was looking forward to having a chance to review it. One of the first things I noticed upon the game loading up was the incredible amount of fluid movement on the screen. Whether you are trying to float the ball to a nearby defender or faking right the motions look incredible and it feels real. In the past, players positions on the court looked cramped and unrealistic. With 2K15, the players look as they would on the court, the spacing is natural. While I loved last years NBA, 2K15 is a massive improvement upon it, with improved movement and physics NBA 2K15 is as close as you are going to get to playing in an NBA game from the comfort of your home.
NBA 2K15 Xbox 360 is perhaps one of the most visually striking games I have come across recently. I would almost be willing to say it is one of the most realistic among all genres of games. I would wager my gaming system that is the most realistic sports game. Players were scanned for the most accurate portray of their features. However, it is the emotions, sweat, and even pain that comes across with striking clarity. I could not believe the incredible detail in animation as players fought, dived, and dunked the ball in game. While the players are skillfully animated it is the crowds, that are going to have you amazed. Take your attention away from the main action on the court and watch how they react to the big plays and really bad calls. Of course, the couches and sidelined players have some of the funniest and spot on reactions and comments to the plays and calls. If you enjoy the thrill of a live game you can count on hot shows from the cheerleaders, highlight reels, and even a half time interview done with the actual voices of the superstars from that game.
While the game is visually exciting and superior it engages your other senses full on. The commentary that runs with the game is incredible. In fact this game sets the bar really high as to what future sports games have to achieve. Unlike other games where random blurbs are played, the commentary is right on the money. The calls are right and they correspond exactly to what is happening on the game and in the season. Likewise the crowds which are so skillfully animated, have an incredible repertoire of sounds and sayings that play right in with what is happening on screen. Lastly, the soundtrack to the game is something you would hear at live NBA game. The soundtrack was mixed by superstar Pharell and includes an eclectic mix of song that will please all musical tastes.
While incredible graphics and awesome sound are important, they certainly do not make the game. In the end it is how well the game plays and how accurate it is to real life. So how does NBA 2K15 Xbox 360 stack up? The game manages to live up to the hype with an A.I. That is going to keep you pushing and playing hard. The game analyzes your play and starts to make strategy changes on the fly. The strategy of the opposing team makes sense, and will keep you guessing to outwit the CPU for the duration of the game. You have to work to win in this game, because there are no easy roads. I am not saying winning is impossible, but you have to work for it.
There are several modes to play and all of them are quite enjoyable. I have to admit of them all I really enjoyed the My Career mode the most. In this mode you have a lot ot prove as you are going to start at the bottom and work your way up to superstar status. I think one of the reasons it is so enjoyable is it uses the new face scanning technology, which is a blast. It might take you a few tries to get it right, but it is worth it, My one suggestion is to use the scanner or camera in a really well lit room. When you do it right, the results are absolutely stunning, and just plain fun!
NBA 2K15 Xbox 360 is a complete package, that has everything going for it. It is one of the few sports games that no sports fans would even enjoy playing. If you are a sports fan though, this has to be in your collection. This is the summary or review on NBA 2K15 Xbox 360.
