While there is even more about NBA 2K21 to find from Sunxuemei's blog

While there is even more about NBA 2K21 MT to find, I feel that this is a good primer about what you may expect in the new version of the sport, but I guess the remaining question here boils down to how this title is delivered on all of the next-gen systems. The good thing is that they're almost identical visually. PS5 and String X offer a whole native 4K presentation - it looks super sharp on both the systems and all visuals look the same between them. The PS4 Pro version that I used for last-gen testing, by the way, also appears to operate at native 4K but obviously with decreased visual fidelity. The one difference , predictably, lies with the Series S version. You get all the exact same next-gen visuals because it's bigger brother, just in a lower resolution.

I'd say that NBA 2K21 is a great launch for all consoles and far more impressive than I expected. While the constraints in the cartoon are still evident at things, it's the liquid and realistic-looking basketball game I've ever seen. Visual Concepts has established a high bar here in regards to visual quality and this is only the beginning, really. Additionally, it is wonderful to see that this version is totally separate from the last-gen iteration, suggesting they're building from a new starting point. I expect we will continue to see things improve over time and I'll be interested to see how other businesses like EA Sports manage the transition. FIFA 21 has only received its own next-gen update (featuring Frostbite's much-vaunted hair physics, no less) and we'll be taking a look at that shortly. The significant problems that were holding The City ago seem to have been addressed. The framerates have improved and contact dunks are nerfed. Also, the Mamba Mentality badge is not any working correctly. It seems 2K is making its way through a listing of early troubles. Among the main areas in need of attention is that the MyNBA style.2K blew franchise mode fans' heads with the concepts and reach of the revamped MyLeague feature.

I have spoken with people from 2K who've expressed a strong and proven desire to right the boat in these areas. At some point, I'm convinced it'll be fixed. However, the reality is, some of the problems may need to be addressed over the course of a few updates. Crashes will and ought to take priority, but there's also a issue with player progression. If you run a MyNBA with friends, youthful star players experience computer-based evaluations early in their careers, that's the opposite of what should be occurring in a franchise model. This may not sound like a big deal, but for lovers who aspire to perform more than 1 season with their friends --that is the entire point of the mode--they still have a Cheap 2K21 MT tough stop in their experience until this issue is corrected.
