Minor improvements to what is already high-level gameplay are ruined by the presence of predatory microtransactions in both multiplayer and single player.

6/10

4/10

“It would be one thing if this was just NBA 2K20 with some minor changes but this rips the heart out of last year’s game solely to appeal to competitive online players, with many much-loved features stripped back or not included at all.”

7/10

“NBA 2K21 still delivers the thrill of being on the court and producing spectacular plays, but it lacks innovation and fresh ideas”
