NBA 2K20 offers again what we saw last year and the year before that, which is a solid Basketball experience. Some minor technical issues are still here and there, which suggests that the developers are using the same core mechanics as they did previously. Maybe we need to wait for next generation of gaming devices for a completely new and fresh NBA experience.

NBA 2K20 is the best Basketball simulator that has ever created and one of the best sport games of this generation, but as like as recent years, amount of in-game buyings (in a 60 $ game) thtat directly affects gameplay and your experience, has done great damage to the game. I really must say that if it wasn't for huge amount of in-game purchasings, NBA 2K20 would be an "almost perfect sport game" in every aspects, but now we can't ignore the damage that it has done to the game. In the end and with all of these aspects in mind, i must say that NBA 2K20 has seen many improvements and it is an absolutely worthy game to play, but it could be so much better if it wasn't for "gameplay affecting in-game buyings".

NBA 2K20 remains a solid basketball title and something that fans of the sport are bound to enjoy. But the game seems designed to pressure players into pumping extra money so they don't have to spend an ungodly amount of time grinding, and that dampens the arena atmosphere.

At its core, NBA 2K20 boasts a great gameplay mechanicsm, enjoyable visuals and fluid animations, such that it is difficult to name any other Sports game that does these as good as 2K20. However all this greatness is marred by a single misconduct, microtransaction services run rampant throughout player's experience and it is easy to find yourself wishing that they were not present at all.

Overall, NBA 2K20 is still a solid experience for any video game basketball fan but it isn’t going to sway anyone who wasn’t already set on playing.

NBA 2K20 is pure magic on the playground. The new physical model, the impact of the new defensive system and the fine tuning of the gameplay is something valuable which give to basketball lovers endless possibilities. On the other side, the new GM mode is very disappointing and 2K business model for MyTeam is still questionable. The good news is that microtransations are quite useless in MyCareer mode, which thanks to King James work shines again to its original beauty.

NBA 2K20 is the best basketball game around. Granted, thus far, the competition hasn't shown up. But if and when it does, the bar has been set very high for the basketball sim genre. Facial animations are still odd, and monetization rears its head in practically every mode. But the core ball play, plethora of gameplay modes, and a great presentation all combine to make NBA 2K20 the basketball game to beat this year.

NBA 2K20's presentation is unparalleled, but beneath its shiny exterior are continued problems with its online infrastructure and some pretty odious microtransactions. The latter are a bit less punishing than last year, but the former is worse than ever, and it affects almost every aspect of the game. These elements, which seemingly come up every year, unfortunately overshadow what should be an amazing sports sim.

If we're only talking about the gameplay, NBA 2K20 plays like a dream – however, the microtransations are simply ridiculous. If you don't mind that, feel free to enjoy the best basketball video game under the sun.

NBA 2K20 is another fine entry into the franchise, with this year's story mode being its best yet. There are issues, but the good far outweighs the bad.

That makes it such a shame that microtransactions infect the story-driven MyCareer, dragging that down to mediocrity or worse. Fortunately, the intriguing though repetitive MyGM mode and the flexible and engrossing MyLeague mode make up for the online-only options. Throw in the WNBA teams and NBA 2K20 is likely the best iteration of the series on Switch even with its caveats.

NBA 2K20 is a fun game that has tweaked a handful of different modes, provided a better story than usual and modified the gameplay in a challenging new way that takes some getting used to. I really do wish they would just do away with the whole currency option altogether, because I suspect you would see more people trying out different types of players and experiencing more of the game without the artificial slowness that forces you to grind or pay.

NBA2K20 is an incredible addition to the series. The depth and attention to detail make it a masterclass in replicating the beauty of the game. MyCAREER particularly stands out with 2K being serious with the star cast of Idris Elba and LeBron James, with the latter also being the executive producer. This is a game that does so much right, you're quick to forget the incessant brand plugging and intimidating grind.

NBA 2K20 excels at recreating real-world basketball, but loses focus off of the court.

NBA 2K20‘s fantastic feel on the courts and how its main modes work as advertised are the most important parts. Some of the secondary additions might be lacking when compared to the polish seen in the new cinematic story mode, but they still serve their purpose to flesh out the package.
