As reflected on site Steam250, 2K’s latest installment in its NBA videogame series doesn’t seem to have been a huge hit with players so far. The site offers, according to its Patreon page, “a collection of over 100 automated Steam game rankings based on user votes – the thumbs up or down given with each review – designed to help players find the best games on Steam.”2k20 MT
The site’s list of the “bottom 100” Steam games – its “Hall of Shame” – has it in second-to-worst place, only above a racing title called Flatout 3: Chaos and Destruction. On Steam itself, the game’s reviews are summed up as “overwhelmingly negative.”While there are some positive reviews, they’re pretty few and far between. The less positive reviews cite various reasons for not recommending the game, but common themes seem to be the game’s microtransactions, similarity to NBA 2K19 (like its taskbar), and some glitches. As Kotaku highlights, the hashtag #fix2K20 has been doing the rounds on Twitter, following players’ experiences of some reported in-game hiccups.
This follows some recent controversy over an NBA 2K20 trailer that in some ways looked more like a casino ad. Videogame content rating company PEGI recently said that it didn’t count as gambling under its current criteria, though it added that it was “very aware it may get too close for comfort for some people.”Click Here
