It later became available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S upon the release of those consoles.

As with previous entries in the series, “NBA 2K21” aims to provide an authentic and immersive basketball experience, featuring realistic gameplay, lifelike player animations, and accurate representations of NBA teams, players, and arenas.

The game offers multiple game modes to cater to different playstyles and preferences:

3. “MyGM” and “MyLeague”: These modes focus on the management aspect of running an NBA franchise. Players take on the role of a general manager or team owner and make decisions related to roster management, finances, and more.

4. “Play Now”: This mode allows players to jump into a quick game with their favorite NBA team and compete against the AI or other players locally or online.

5. “Blacktop”: In this mode, players can engage in street-style basketball games with customized rules and teams.

The gameplay in “NBA 2K21” emphasizes realism and skill, with various player attributes, animations, and shot mechanics playing crucial roles in the outcome of the game. The game’s AI is designed to provide a challenging experience for players, especially in higher difficulty levels.

“NBA 2K21” also features updated player rosters, reflecting the changes in real-life NBA teams and player trades.

The game’s graphics and presentation are top-notch, with detailed player models, realistic animations, and lifelike crowd reactions.

While “NBA 2K21” received praise for its gameplay, presentation, and depth of content, some players and critics also raised concerns about microtransactions and the balance between in-game currency and player progression in certain modes.

Overall, “NBA 2K21” remains a popular choice for basketball fans and sports gaming enthusiasts, offering an immersive and engaging basketball experience that captures the essence of the NBA.
