The NBA 2K which was released last year definitely did up the expectations with exciting new features to the excitement of the players. And yet we were left wanting for more. There were also a few bugs that had to be fixed to make the game more enticing.
NBA 2K18 New Features
So given that the next edition of the NBA 2K games, the NBA 2K18 is on the pipeline, we have tried to collate a list of all features that we would like to be part of this upcoming edition. The NBA 2K18 is being released amidst high expectations and we hope that the developers are able to create as many features as the fans would want in this edition.
The wish list of features for the NBA 2K17 did run to hundreds of pages and we hope to see an equally pleasing response for this edition too. Let us now take a look on some key features we hope to see and please feel free to leave your valuable comment below.
- Building up characters
It has been the woe of many gamers that building up the player character in the NBA 2K games takes almost a year’s time. While a lot of gamers do exercise patience and enjoy the time building their player not many would want to spend so much time. In fact there are players looking for the arcade version than spending time building a player for nearly a year. So maybe we can look for an alternate mode in this new version.
- Different MyCareer Mode
The idea in this mode is to start off the play like a star player. Isn’t that how you would like to play? But you will not realize the amount of effort that every player undergoes to reach the star level. Before they climb to the stardom, the players have to go through multiple games in high school and other places, honing their skills. Hence a mode where the player can play some high school games where the traits of the player are further sharpened and then move to the major leagues.
- Improve on Face Scanner
Currently the game uses a 3D face scanner which is not living to the expectations. The face takes a longer time to get a proper scan and yet you don’t find it looking good in the screen afterwards. With nearly 70% of the gaming population using this feature, this is definitely something that needs a good fix with the upcoming edition.
- Crowds and cheerleaders
Graphical imaging has not been a strong point for the NBA 2K games. Just getting some cheers and claps when you score a point is so old school and is part of almost every sporting game. And so is the cheerleading squad which is not adding to the atmosphere. We therefore need a better fix on the cheerleaders and the crowd animations in the upcoming NBA 2K18.
- Players body have no muscle
When you have players such as the Brandon Bass in the mix, you are expecting to see some massive frame and yet what you see is completely opposite to reality. In fact, quite a few giant players in the game have highly disproportionate body figure. Yes, the graphic imaging has improved over years but there is still a long way to go.
- Improve Music playlist
It is true that you can turn down the music if you don’t like it and have something blaring from your speakers. But one must admit that the music line for the NBA 2K games haven’t been exactly enticing. We believe that the game publisher, should focus a little on picking out some upcoming and trendy artists to add to their line.
- Pause screen on multiplayer
Unlike the online version of the game where your opponent cannot pause the game when you have the ball, the multiplayer mode in the NBA 2K has the option to pause. So your opponent can easily pause just as you are about to shoot, and read the game. This is one feature that should be removed from the multiplayer game.
- Broken Dribbling and defense
Few bugs in the game really kills the mood for the game like when you cannot cross when the defender is right next to you. There are many such tiny spoilers which if removed could pave way for a really good game and this is one thing we would want to be fixed in the upcoming version.
- More voices for career
The game doesn’t present with many voices. So you will actually be sounding like someone you are not and it is quite weird. This is a constant place of complaint and we sincerely hope for a fix of this feature in the upcoming edition.
- Fix the broken substitution
There is a bug with the substitution where the player gets subbed back immediately but this was fixed with a patch in the earlier version. We really hope that this has been permanently fixed in NBA 2K18.
