NBA 2K17's soundtrack fits the bill, while the commentary and on-court atmosphere is superb.
Some of NBA 2K17's cut-scenes continue to highlight some of the flaws with the game's engine, but on the court itself, the game looks remarkable. Player likenesses and shiny hardwood make for a stunning game of basketball.
As smooth and responsive as NBA 2K16, but polished to an almost blinding sheen, NBA 2K17 is quite possibly the pinnacle of video game basketball. There's not a lot to complain about here.
MyCareer, MyTeam, MyLeague/MyGM, MyPark, Pro-Am and more, NBA 2K17 is the most robust offering yet, with each mode a worthwhile thing in its own right. Menus are also vastly improved, making for a tighter, more accomplished package all round.
A good, strong list with an excellent spread across all of NBA 2K17's modes means you'll be bagging achievements as you explore everything on offer, and you won't have to grind too much either.
