age 16+


it is horrific as b-ball players slam their bodies into other players to get the ball into the hoop. This horrific event is then in television and players then get awards for doing this. You then play as one of these players.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

NBA 2K15 continues to cement the pro hoops franchise as one of the best in the sports genre. The level of detail is incredible; players look nearly identical to their real-world counterparts, and they move fluidly on the court. Add the authentic broadcast, and it feels like a game you might see on TV.

What makes this edition special is more robust MyGM and MyPlayer modes in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. MyGM offers an incredible level of depth to the experience of managing a team, from restructuring contracts to fielding calls about trades from opposing general managers. It really gives you a sense of the front office. MyPlayer has players earn a 10-day contract, then fight for a starting role on a team. The rush of ensuring your player lands on a squad is tense but exhilarating. With all these features, NBA 2K15 is a slam dunk.
