NBA game series is an absolute must-have for any basketball fan. These games are meant to let the players feel the connection with the pros and try their hand at the court while having almost supernatural skills. NBA 2K22 version features the teams and players from the current NBA season. But you can also choose from historic teams and players, as well as creating completely new ones.
The developers focused on making the game more realistic, with less risk of impossible (and sometimes even ridiculous) tactics. With the new stamina loss, the players’ moves are more balanced if it comes to effectiveness. Getting tired affects the shot meter, making it tough to put the ball into the bucket right after a long sprint. That makes an impression of an even more real-life game than in 2K21.
The impact of basketball IQ on the players will let them perform precise jump shooting, dunking in traffic, alley-oops, and more. You can also expect a new arsenal of defensive moves. Strong perimeter defense is something to try out. The most exciting seems to be dribbling with moves like KD’s big hesi crosses, Harden’s around/thru the leg moves, Steph’s quick machine gun crosses, or Luka’s methodical rock back and forth dribbles.
Of all the recent details, it’s the draft that arouses emotions. That’s a new multiplayer mode, which aspires to be even the most played feature. By choosing Player Cards you can assemble a team of 13 players and a coach. Each Friday you may expect 3 new cards in Featured Pack. Moreover, you can get your cards graded by sending them to NBA 2K22’s MyTEAM Authentic Card Grading Service. That will determine the card’s value in the second-hand market (a good idea for those wishing for a bit of adrenaline while gambling).
Just like in the previous version, with NBA 2K22 next-gen you can expect some improvements. The main difference is the access to the new City with quicker alternatives to matchmaking. Owners of older consoles and PCs will get to experience an upgraded Neighborhood - on top of a sailing cruise ship - now, that’s quite luxurious. They can also choose to play in Shoreside Events.
