So this was obviously a major concern for NBA 2K22, this year's edition of that NBA gaming. After the decent game at the end of NBA 2K20 and the mixed NBA 2K21, there were numerous questions about which features NBA 2K22 would bring to the table. The questions only increased as NBA 2K22 did not release an initial demo of the game, something it has been doing for years. There was no gameplay footage. There were very few trailers of the game and of the players inside it.
The good news is that NBA 2K22 has officially dropped in the United States, giving basketball fans another chance to step on the court to compete against their favourite NBA stars. Let me tell you -- this isn't a cut and paste game. It's a great game to upgrade for, if your on looking for a new NBA game.
But you're not here just to know my thoughts about whether you should purchase it. You're here to find out what makes it good, bad and ugly. So, here are 22 things I noticed when playing the game the first day before its launch.
The NBA 2K22 games run faster and more fluidly. Everything fits perfectly and plays smoothly. Your players are able to find the best locations. The defense works together. The offense knows how to play and runs around in the right spots. Everything is running smoothly right now, and that's a positive sign for the game's lifespan.
