When 2k18 came out I thought “I really don’t like this”. I kept playing because I need my 2k fix like everyone else. I’ve only played 19 for a few hours and I have nothing but good feelings. The negative reviews seem to be coming from no anti cheat – personally, I don’t care, I only play career and local play-now. Also, if you are guys are wondering how i got my hands on the apk file, watch this youtube clip: nba 2k19 mobile download
The things I like:
The story is actually engaging this year. I like the characters – their voices are done well. Theres some big name actors in there.
YOU CAN SKIP A CUTSCENE IF YOU ARENT VIBING IT OR YOUVE GOTTEN THE GIST.
For the last three years in dunking, and the last FOREVER with blocks – if you didn’t stack that category, you would never do either of those things. This year they finally addressedd those issues. Almost any player can dunk (look at the NBA, almost any player above a certain height can dunk) and you can actually block someone if they took a bad shot. There are better steal scenarios and it actually feels like there are some fights in the 50/50 balls.
There may still be micro transactions but at least the games pay out more VC. There are usually two goals that pay 500 each so on top of your stats, you can actually earn enough to level up decently.
Alot of the animations and collisions between players is improved too. It feels like alot of the mo-cap stuff got a face lift. The graphics aren’t amazing but they are consistent and on par with the last games.
Just in general I have good feelings about the game which hasn’t been true since 2k16. I’m a junky tho, I already know I’m getting 2k20. Just happy with how this year turned out. If you’re mostly a career player you’ll probably like it.
