NBA 2K17 continues the tradition by delivering a more refined version of the best basketball simulator out there. With increased options in ball control, a better (but not so great) story, and a ton of customization options, NBA 2K17 is a blast to play even if it is set back by sluggish online connectivity issues.

One of the very best looking and playing sports games on the market today, NBA 2K17 continues to take from the "Free to Play" handbook in some of its best modes. Funnelling players towards microtransactions at every opportunity take away some of the fun, but not all.
The realism and tweaks to gameplay and options makes this year’s entry great, giving basketball fans an immersive and varied experience.
NBA 2K17 isn't just a great basketball game or a great sports game – it's a fantastic game, full stop.
The final product that is NBA 2K17 is exactly what basketball fans want, right down to Shaq at the commentating table, but in areas where it progressed it also felt some growing pains.
NBA 2K17 is the greatest basketball game ever made, bar none. That said, it's not really accessible at first for newcomers, so keep that in mind; if you intend to venture into the MyCareer mode, be prepared for lots of unnecessary cutscenes, too.
The NBA 2K series has always been a hard one to improve upon since the revolutionary 2K14, but 2K17 still manages to better its predecessors, vastly improving the MyGM and MyLeague modes while refusing to tamper with a winning formula. MyCareer is once again a very enjoyable story, and general gameplay is as strong as ever. Simply put, NBA 2K17 is a trailblazer.
Like the Cleveland Cavs, NBA 2K17 is a championship caliber basketball game.
NBA 2K17 is a shining example for every annual series. Each iteration looks like a new, fresh title.Visual Concepts does not seem to get enough: the team renew and experiment new features every time, showing a love for basketball impossible to be found in other videogames.
