Even for a lapsed fan like myself, it’s a fun time. We reviewed the game here, and tagged it with an 87%, saying:
NBA 2K21 is terrific, offering a bunch modes that include season play, WNBA, playground games, and a hearty creation suite. It also looks awesome, with excellent levels of detailing on both players and courts. I have a hard time imagining that fans of the sport wouldn’t have fun with this one.Our score: 87%
So basically, it’s a pretty good time. And now, it’s set to be more or less free for Xbox gamers. You do have to be a Game Pass subscriber to get in on the action, but as long as you are then you’re in b-ball heaven.
