The long wait is over for NBA fanatics on iOS and Android as the latest edition of the online basketball game has now been made available to iPhone and Android-powered phones. The NBA 2K17 is the most promising version yet.
NBA 2K17 can now be downloaded via app stores of iOS and Android devices. The latest edition boasts a makeover in gameplay controls while it comes with a support for a physical controller. On top of that, the MyCareer mode receives additions like player equipment, a new badge scheme and off-day simulations, among others.
One of the noticeable changes is in how players handle and dribble the ball which makes the game more realistic in general than its previous installments. As a result, players are given more control over crossovers. Not to mention the jump-shot being timed well to score a 2-pointer shot without getting in the paint too easily. Although there might still be instances that the player will get caught in such situation.
In addition, the right stick can be used for more steal attempts aside from the dusty old steal button.
NBA 2K17 also allows gamers to choose who to play on the court regardless of the player being from different teams which makes the game more exciting and fulfilling.
In the downside department, the team takes a little bit longer before they can regroup for the round.
Overall, a review published on IGN.com concluded that NBA 2K17 "is another rock-solid game" for bringing in sought-after updates.
NBA 2K17 costs $7.99 on mobile phones which is way too pricey despite the presence of the free to play NBA Live Mobile. However, this amount is already good to prevent annoying in-app purchases from popping up as they sometime break the momentum of the game.
