What’s new with NBA 2K18
Mine still says arriving tomorrow but I haven't received anything saying its been shipped? I did two day delivery when I pre-ordered the early tip off edition as that was the option to get it this Friday tomorrow. I spoke with Amazon and received the following information regarding my copy: Early Tip-off Edition - PlayStation 4, and can confirm that it's now back-ordered.
I'm sorry about this delay--we certainly didn't expect this would happen. I want to make sure your order gets to you faster once we have stock. To help make up for the delay, I've upgraded the shipping method to One-Day Shipping at no additional cost.
The new estimated delivery date of your shipment is on September 28, because the item is scheduled to arrive in our fulfillment center on September 27, but as soon as we receive more stock earlier than the estimated delivery date, we'll ship your order right away and send you an e-mail to let you know. Check out the trailer above to see everything that Neighborhoods has to offer.
MyCareer will once again let you produce your own custom baller and map out their NBA journey. MyGM will now incorporate the use of cutscenes that play out the bigger moments and give it more of a MyCareer feel. MyTeam makes its return and once again gives players the chance to create their own dream team through the use of virtual trading cards.
Players will take their custom team into tournament competition against other squads, get rewarded with VC Virtual Currency , purchase new card packs and acquire new players and gear for their roster. Along with a lineup of teams and players currently competing in the NBA, NBA 2K18 is adding in some of the best dynasty teams to ever bless the court.
Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics is the cover athlete. The trailer highlights the developers' attempts to improve the game's presentation; player body archetypes and faces have been overhauled and more uniforms and accessories have been scanned into the game.
NBA 2K18 received "generally favorable" reviews for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, while the Nintendo Switch version received "mixed or average" reviews from critics, according to review aggregator Metacritic. That said, boil the game down to its essentials and you have a rock-solid, well-balanced sports sim that provides an immensely entertaining shoulder-to-shoulder same-couch multiplayer experience. It's too bad, then, that The Neighborhood is covered in ads and persistent microtransaction begging.
The growing push to spend real dollars on VC impacts those looking to build even the most basic of player avatars. Instead of improving gameplay, it's figuring out more ways to make money through MyCareer and MyTeam. Its new Neighborhood functions as a metaphor for the entire game itself, in that it seems like a big addition to the game but you quickly realize it's pretty much just an empty shopping mall and a distraction from the actual game.
The biggest issue Kotaku brought up was the amount of advertising and time wasted playing the MyCareer. In older games, the MyCareer was spent in your apartment, shooting around and buying shoes from the comfort of your bed. But in NBA 2K18 , to perform a simple act such as cutting your hair or changing your shirt, you need to walk a long distance down the street. In a hub where you can meet other players but not interact with them, NBA 2K18 ' s MyCareer mode falls flat compared to previous years.
Rather than earn your spot in the NBA by playing through a college career, you're told that you're playing as someone who quit basketball to pursue a career as a DJ, and who is able to return to the game—and the NBA itself—by playing a few street games in an amateur tournament. Public reception to the game has been much poorer.
Since its release, it has held overwhelmingly negative reviews on Steam  , with many complaints about the large amount of in-game currency bought with real-world money required to play the game to an enjoyable level. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
