Offered by 2K
The last friday September 9 arrived in stores NBA 2K23a new installment of the 2K virtual basketball saga that year after year offers us the best basketball game available today that pays tribute to one of the most important sports of the world and to the queen league of the same, the NBA.
This year the creators of NBA 2K offer us a lots of changes and news that invite us to return to the virtual court and, in this article, we are going to review the 5 that we believe will make you grab the controller again to enjoy basketball.
The most polished gameplay of the saga
NBA 2K23 introduce a good handful of gameplay improvements based on the comments of the players, offering us this year some shooting mechanics more satisfactory, being able to even choose the shot indicator that we want to use at each moment to choose the one that works best for us to “achieve greens”.
It has also been boosted inner game being able to make more penetrations, layups and dunks in a much more plastic and fluid way, without giving up the three-point shots that will continue to be very important as they are today in the NBA. In addition, rebounds and other gameplay aspects have also improved (there are changes to the stamina system, for example) to give us the most polished gameplay in the series to date.
The Jordan Challenge, a tribute to the GOAT
Michael Jordan is the most important legend in the NBA for what it meant for the league at the level of international expansion, making the 23 of the Bulls a myth of the 90s for anyone who was a sports fan.
In NBA 2K23 tribute is paid to his figure with the Jordan Challengea game mode that allows us play the 15 most emblematic games of the GOAT’s careermeet challenges in each of them, learn more about his life thanks to various interviews prior to the matches and immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of the 80s and 90s thanks to a system of image filters to achieve a very interesting retro air.
Live the most important ERAS of the NBA
Jordan this year has his own game mode and is the main figure of NBA 2K23but the 2K title is also an ode to the past and the history of the league thanks to My NBA and the new Eras within this mode of game that allows us to take the reins of a franchise from the competition.
Now, by playing My NBA we can start the game in one of the four eras available to become a GM and change the history of the NBA, discovering what would have happened if, for example, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson had played on the same team. . The four eras that we can choose from are Modern (current season), Kobe (from 2002), Jordan (since 1991) the Magic vs Bird (since 1983).
Form a dream team in MyTEAM
the star of NBA 2K23 be, once again, the MyTEAM mode thanks to which we will be able to form a dream team made up of the best players in the NBA today and by several legends in the history of the competition who will be at our service virtually.
This year MyTEAM has a very important change which is the removal of player contracts. Now, when we manage to have a player, he will be ours forever and we will not have to look at how many games he has left with us or renew his contract, something that has changed the internal economy of the game itself. In addition, new ways of getting players through team trophies are also added, and variants of game modes such as Cooperative Triple Threat or Offline Decisive Moments.
The City is more alive than ever
In the current generation of consoles we will have the citya capital of virtual basketball that this year is more alive than ever thanks to really successful changes in its design that make it improve both in appearance and in functionality for the player.
The city is smaller in size saving us time on trips and having everything better distributed so that we can access different game modes, buy clothes for our NBA star or play street basketball, all while we see how a lot of people gather around the Arena before a game. In addition, a fast travel system is also released that will make everything much more at hand, significantly influencing the time we actually spend playing.
