NBA 2K19 Review: Still the Reigning Basketball Champ

NBA 2K19  marks the 20th anniversary of the NBA 2K series, released annually since 1999, and despite the series' longevity developer Visual Concepts isn't resting on its laurels. NBA 2K has been the cream of the crop when it comes basketball video games for quite some time, putting rival NBA Live from EA Sports to shame historically. NBA 2K19 doesn't change that fact at all.
NBA 2K19 isn't a flawless product. There's a few minor gripes to make about this year's entry and one major flaw when it comes to the game's MyTeam mode. Ultimately though NBA 2K19 is still the basketball video game champ. No basketball game, or sports game in general, has more personality, visual flair, or variety than NBA 2K19.

There's so much that NBA 2K19 does right that its hard to single out just one aspect. Yet the crown jewel of NBA 2K series is the incredible MyCareer mode. A constant of the series, MyCareer is NBA 2K19's RPG-esque story mode where players create a custom character and chart their journey to NBA superstardom alongside a very talented acting cast. NBA 2K19's MyCareer mode is subtitled "The Way Back' and it stars The Avengers' Anthony Mackie, Haley Joel Osment, and many others . "The Way Back' is the gold standard when it comes to sports games story modes with impeccable production value, strong writing, and terrific animation.
