NBA 2K16 for PC is the next installment of one of the most popular sports game cycles of all time. The title has been developed by the Visual Concepts studio, responsible for the previous productions of the series. In the game itself, we can control every team from the NBA league and more; the authors have prepared various modes for both single, and multiplayer matches.

The gameplay does not differ much from what we have experienced in NBA 2K15, it has a simulation type character, while simultaneously being accessible enough to appeal to players who did not play any other productions of the Visual Concepts studio. The developers have made sure to include various improvements, including those to the steering and control over players.

The graphic style of NBA 2K16 has also been changed, the authors have managed to improve both the overall quality of the visuals, and also miscellaneous details, such as the shoes of the basketball players; the newest installment of the saga features many different kinds and models of footwear. Apart from that, the supporters seated in the stadium have been redesigned more accurately and have received a variety of animations, which mirror their mood and behavior.

Interestingly, the famous American director and producer Spike Lee has been actively involved in the creation of the game and is largely responsible for the design of the MyCareer mode, which offers a quaint storyline with numerous sport-related aspects, such as contracting.
