NBA 2K21 is the next installment in a series of basketball games launched in 2002. As with previous parts of the series, Visual Concepts is responsible for game development. The game was released by 2K Sports.


NBA 2K21 does not make significant changes to the gameplay mechanics. The game allows to play basketball matches in which the behaviour of players on the court is faithfully reproduced. The game is based on an American-Canadian NBA license. Therefore, we will find real players and teams in the game. The main novelty in this year's edition are improved possibilities of using the right analog knob, as well as changes in aiming during jump throws. The devs also tried to shorten loading times. However, we will not see changes in the number of modes available.

Game modes

NBA 2K21 allows you to play alone or in multiplayer mde on a shared screen or over the Internet. In game we once again have the opportunity to test ourselves in the already known game modes. In addition to the ability to play games in the standard season (also in the women's league), we can also play the role of the general manager of the selected team and influence, among others, the relationship with players, training and contracts. There is also a new story mode with a new storyline, in which we create our player again and guide his actions from high school, through college, to NBA.

In addition, we can traditionally test our strength in an online game, via MyTEAM mode. There, we make up our own team from the cards we have won and we can take part in, among others, ranking games and time-limited special modes. This year's edition introduced seasons in which players can more easily win a lot of prizes (including card packs and valuable currency). New players can also be won through single player challenges. There was also a traditional shop where we can buy packages for real money.

Technical aspects

NBA 2K21 has a realistic graphic design - the players, their outfits and stadiums have been mapped in detail. Additionally, the game offers a much more extensive soundtrack than its predecessors.
