NBA 2K17 addresses most of my biggest issues from last year in cutting out canned animations and going back to basics with MyCareer, and it's still as polished as ever. It's easy to take its excellence for granted, but Visual Concepts' ambition and willingness to take risks keeps it from ever becoming stale. NBA 2K17 is the champion, and it's tough to see it losing that title anytime soon.

NBA 2K17 ist nicht nur jedem Basketball-Fan wärmstens ans Herz zu legen. Auch allen sonstigen Sportspiel-Veteranen sei zumindest der Download der offiziellen Demo namens "Der Auftakt", die einen Einblick in die ersten Stunden der Karriere gewährt, empfohlen. Wohl nach wie vor kein anderes Sportspiel kann mit einer ähnlich detailtreuen und umfangreichen virtuellen Abbildung seines Vorbildes aufwarten. Der Status der Online-Welt sowie weitere kleinere Ungereimtheiten trüben zwar das Gesamtbild etwas, dennoch wird der Genreprimus für Monate vor den Bildschirm fesseln können und ist als Steigerung gegenüber NBA 2k16 anzusehen. Die Neuerungen wie der Wurfbalken bei Korblegern verfeinern das Spielgeschehen zunehmend und wurden sinnvoll implementiert. Sollte das Problem mit den Archetypen im Karrieremodus noch dieses oder zumindest nächstes Jahr bei einer gleichbleibend soliden Story ausgebessert werden, kann man von einem nahezu perfekten Sportspiel reden.

When all is said and done, NBA 2K17 goes above and beyond to provide gamers with the true NBA experience regardless of which avenue you choose. The game is polished from top to bottom and rises to the high expectations 2K16 put in place.

NBA 2K17 is undoubtedly the best basketball simulation video game. Despite it doesn’t have any powerful rival, it gets better every year. 2K17 also have a very good story mode which is necessary for good sports games but it doesn’t even disappoint solo players. It’s graphic is exceptional and very realistic, player faces, gyms, ball physics and other visual aspects are implemented very well. Its annoying problem is very limited offline experience, it doesn’t even let you buy animations in offline mode while 2K16 allow you to do that even in offline mode. Anyway, every basketball fan must have this game.

May not be the most innovative sports game ever done, but it's one of the best sports games ever made.
