"NBA 2K19" is finally here, and many fans are gushing over the smooth graphics and features. Year after year, the 2K franchise has put out a great product and some people feel this year's iteration yet another hit, with new rosters and improved modes. Still, the game offers the same basic gameplay it has featured since its creation and that isn't worth the steep price tag to some fans. What do you think? 🎮 🏀

"NBA 2K19" is here! But is it worth the money?

Gamers voiced some legitimate concerns with "NBA 2K18," and the 2K team listened. What gamers are getting is a new and improved game with better player models and new game modes to keep the series fresh. Here is Samit Sarkar of Polygon with more:

Visual Concepts has also worked to address the other progression issue that people complained about: The drip-feed of VC in MyCareer games and activities meant that it took forever to build up your character’s skills (unless, of course, you were willing to fork over money to buy VC).
Bishop said that players now “earn a lot more [VC] and a lot quicker,” thanks to “a ton more opportunities to earn stuff,” such as signing endorsement deals, playing MyCareer games and partaking in activities. This applies to the mode itself as well as its online hub, The Neighborhood. It was a fun concept in NBA 2K18, but its horseshoe layout forced players to waste time jogging from one end to the other. Bishop likened the new setup to a “town square,” with the courts in the middle, and areas like stores and the Jordan Rec Center around them.

Still, some fans think the franchise has jumped the shark. Every version is repetitive and the game modes are played out. The only thing 2K changes is the roster and that's because it absolutely has to. There's nothing revolutionary about this game, and it's totally not worth buying.
