NBA 2K21 fans get the 'Ben Simmons treatment' with new shot mechanics


The latest version of its popular franchise NBA 2K has been released on its usual September schedule, but fans who raced to pick up a copy aren’t happy.


The success of shooting in the game is based on a few factors including individual player rankings as well as how well you time and aim shots.


It has gone “largely unchanged” since its inception according to NBA 2K gameplay director Mike Wang, but in the latest version some adjustments have been made, leaving fans unhappy.


Even this year’s cover athlete, Portland Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard, has struggled.


In response, the game developers provided a “hot fix” on Sunday but it only applies to lower difficulty levels, and doesn’t change anything in multiplayer modes.


Shooting was a sore point for many reviewers, with some even seeking refunds, but others complained that the new game was pretty much the same as it has been for the last three or four years.
