Play now don’t work
by 2kgoooooood on 2019/02/17 16:43
Every time I am going to do play now right before I go into the game instead of a player and they’re stats it just says New York Knick’s and no stats then right after that it kicks me out of the game. But everything else works fine and the same thing happens with blacktop.
Horrid

Glitchiest game ever it isn’t worth the $
🤦🏾‍♂️

Can I play my music off my phone instead of the 2K soundtrack?
Please read!
by jakej1128 on 2019/02/17 03:56
Overall I love the game. However I’ve noticed I randomly don’t get any endorsements after year one and I have 6 million fans but no shoe deal. Is this a bug or is it just my device glitching out? I’d love to get a shoe deal and other endorsements. Other things I’d like to see is balance with coming in and out of the game in my career, since we get tired and can’t play the whole game, also make it so that if you skip some games your teammate chem. Doesn’t drop to 0 just because you skip 5 mid year games. In association make it so that trading is more realistic and picks are more valuable. Also In association make it so that you can actually change Jerseys, relocate etc. as well as making draft picks actually able to develop and not have it be where you get 5 years in and every teams best player is a 66 overall because of the draft players not being developed. Other than That worth it!
Good game but..
by City.Sorber on 2019/02/17 01:52
NBA 2K19 is great. The gameplay is clean. But the graphics could be better. Make it look like the Xbox one graphics. Also add in more jerseys instead of just three. And add all the different Nike jerseys available to the teams. Add the All Stars team as well. Also put a team creator were you can make your own team and upload logos and stuff like that
Bugs
by PulisicUSA on 2019/02/16 23:05
When I do a franchise, and then I start a game of a new franchise, it kicks me out of the game and doesn’t let’s me be the new franchise. I tried deleting the app and re downloading but nothing. They need to update it. Can anybody help me out on how to start a new franchise without kicking me out.
2K at its finest
by 2kfanatic on 2019/02/16 20:33
Great game, plays just like the console versions in almost all aspects minus the online... seriously needs a roster update, it’s been a bit
Horrible
by the bobo y on 2019/02/16 16:11
This is so trash who ever made this your trash I will never play it ever again I can’t get freaking rebounds it is gitching me out
Your game is stupid
by Joonohthegamer on 2019/02/16 15:14
I know all you want is money I paid you got and you never made the game better FIX THIS 🤬🤬🤬👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿 booo
Game is okay
by Gamer1325537764 on 2019/02/16 14:32
The game is okay it would be better if the graphics were updated a little bit and stuff won’t lag a lot. Also during association mode we need to have the ability to hire and fire staff members like they do on real 2K gaming systems! WE NEED THIS ABILITY IF YOU ARE READING!!!! THE GAME WOULD BE MORE INTERESTING!!!!!
2K19
by Bubbacummins01 on 2019/02/16 07:59
I like the game just wish there was more to do, like have a character customization screen for clothes and and shoes, have more things to do in the my career more opportunities and chances at doing things maybe a little more like a console version, all in all it’s a good grind and the in app purchases we’re worth it. Also add white as a skin tone, and do a little more with the hair and tattoo customization. And work on the graphics too many times the shoes come out looking bad or a playlets shoulder would phase through their shirt. Add more shoe, shooting glove and leg sleeve customization or just one straight color. Also choose what socks to wear(Nike,adidas,under armor, Jordan) all in all it is a good game but could be better
No good

I need a refund
Controls are absolute AIDDDDDSSS
by 🐒🗿🗿🗿 on 2019/02/16 07:42

by D-Book on 2019/02/16 03:33
Don’t get me wrong, nba2k is awesome, but the rosters are so outdated. It has been about 2 weeks since the Tobias Harris trade and the other trades at the deadline and 2K19 has still not updated. Come on 2K19!
Smh
by dttd418 on 2019/02/15 22:49
I max out my 3pt shooting and I still miss wide open 3s, keeps on glitching, it does its own thing when trying to do another move...don’t waste your money
Refund PLEASE
by Red0430 on 2019/02/15 21:09
This game isn’t the best. I’ve played a lot of NBA 2K games, but this one is the most stupid game ever. The people disappear, the controls are HARD, so I can barely play. I can’t make a shot without it making NO sense! This game is like a ripoff to 2K, the graphics are TERRIBLE! No offense, 2K, but WHOEVER made this.. Apple, give me my money back!
Update you goddamn Rosters 2k
by @DaRealDeeFromTrish3ll on 2019/02/15 20:01
Still can’t play defense with the right stick on 2k18 mode so it make it hard to defend but other that it’s alright. UPDATE ROSTER ATFTER THE TRADE DEADLINE
Sad
by b.jol on 2019/02/15 05:07
2K please what’s going on I use to think this was the best game ever made but it’s not how is it possible to miss a green excellent release 😕😕 that’s sad and the jerseys are not even enough most players don’t look themselves the game also lag a lot I mean it’s over a month now and there is no update when should we be expecting an update it taking too much time

UPDATES
by dndmsls s on 2019/02/14 23:35
NBA2k19 needs to do a roster update ASAP and update the players faces to and make the game like the console where you can change the starting line up when your my player is a 90 overall and stuff like that But the Game need a roster update After the trade dead line in the real NBA...!!!!!!
🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

A waste of money

This game is horrible when I make a perfect release I always miss even on 2k 18 it was still horrible
Please add Statement and City jerseys
by black mamba curry on 2019/02/13 01:37
1) please add the nike Statement and City edition jerseys, including purple jerseys for Lakers. And please give us more than 3 options when picking a jersey. 2) fix gordon hayward, javale mcgee, jimmy butler, and embiid's hairstyles
More ideas for the game
by jfjdjdhds on 2019/02/13 00:08
Can we be able to make own on shoe. Can u also put some more accessories like handbands. Can u guys out in a shoot around with all the players on your team not just u by yourself that’s kinda boring. Can u guys also put in better commentary this one is crap and also other commentators thank u again
Trash
by Bradleyab89 on 2019/02/12 23:09
Game is laggy, controls are slow to respond, rosters aren’t accurate. Luke Kennard is literally not in this game. Should be free like it used to be.
This is good

This isn’t really a review it is a question so if I make a second career player will it delete my first one please try and answer me ASAP

Has lots of potential!
by PersonalPower on 2019/02/12 03:54
I enjoy playing this game, but I believe that there should be more features added. For example, it would be nice if there were more customization options.

Add a Derrick Rose story and a Isaiah Thomas story from the Celtics pretty sure many will love it and make a Dwayne wade story “The last dance”
Game crashing
by abeskee267 on 2019/02/11 01:42
Every time I choose my teams and wait for the game to start it just crashes and sends me back to my home screen. I’ve tried deleting and re downloading still same thing. Feels like a waste of money.

This game Trash 🚮
Takes up too much space!
by 🇭🇷🇺🇸🇸🇮🇷🇸🇧🇦🇩🇪 on 2019/02/10 19:25
I love this app, but it takes up too much space! At least make it less spacious! I had to delete practically every single app or game on my 16GB iPad to get the update, and I still can't get it, so please be more generous and make NBA 2k20 with less space! Also, the graphics are horrible compared to the real game, so change that too! And give the MyCareer player more of a backstory! It makes it so unrealistic! and when I tried managing the rosters, and after saving it, it always goes back to the way it was! Other than that, great app!
What’s the point of a shot meter
by @Seb67 on 2019/02/10 13:27
How am I getting back to back green release shots and bricking. My my player has a 99 overall 3-point rating and is missing wide out green release shots. 2K19 fix your game. We paying 7.99 for this game and nba 2K mobile is better. What’s the point of one purchasing the game and two having a shot meter. This game is trash I’m really disappointed.

Worth Buying but .....The Audio System & The Replay Viewer?
by Kunn23 on 2019/02/08 05:32
It’s awesome to play such a game with amazing graphics with a phone and I totally appreciate it. One thing I want is “the replay”. Me and also cpus make highlights but the replays wont come even if we dunk and I dont know why. I hope you guys will make a replay viewer button at the next update so that everyone could watch the replays when they want. Also, sometimes the audio system lags and the commentators stops talking. Same thing for the crowd. It needs more improvements. But, I’m just happy that it’s worth buying and I can play with the right players. Keep up the nice work!
Update
by theoriginalmoschino on 2019/02/08 03:22
There should be an update out with all the new trades & something to stop the crashing.

NBA 2K19
by John Michael Valverde on 2019/02/07 22:59
The only problem I have found so far with this game is the controller. The block/rebound button is so unresponsive that it makes mycareer unplayable for me because I’m an 85 overall playmaker and I still want to grab rebounds at 6’6 but I can’t because the buttons are so small. Plz fix that 2k. I had to take down a star because the rosters still aren’t updated come on 2k plz fix the rosters
Force Closing!?
by Jordan Drey on 2019/02/07 22:11
This game always force closes upon starting a game... it worked perfectly fine after a couple games, now it doesn’t work at all!? Help!
PLEASE CHANGE
by jayhood561 on 2019/02/06 17:31
This is an bad game because of it’s extremely difficult as rookie. 2k need to change that because that’s punishing and it don’t worth’s playing if you can’t play it

This game need to be updated asap change players face etc whole game need to be fixed😡😡😡
More improvements
by isaac behdadina on 2019/02/06 02:24
The game is good but the same exact as last year nba 2k18 the game needs console graphics like nba 2k18 console graphics and the game has a lot of bugs and nba 2k20 mobile needs to be similar as console and it needs a lot of updates
Game doesnt work
by Coop365 on 2019/02/06 01:50
I havent been able to get past the edit my player screen there is no clear way to go forward. Any suggestions?
Great game
by PEYTON.Y on 2019/02/06 00:53
Mycareer mode is awesome. I can just sim through my 2 year contracts with each team until I get one from my favorite team. It’s also really cool how I’m coming off the bench for 6 mins a game and still scoring 16 points regularly. Only thing I don’t like is the long intro with the Chinese basketball league, G league, etc. But overall great game
HORRIBLE
by Renzoh0108 on 2019/02/05 22:12
How come 2K makes graphics like this? It does not look like the real game!! When your in MyCareer when your making your character it only shows on PRESET!! It is just like 2k16 2k17 and ‘18.
Terrible, unrealistic
by Thirty3Seven7 on 2019/02/05 20:20
Ok first off, in MyCAREER, your player can go off for 100 points every game, which is not a good look for this game. Many people like that, but it’s not even a bit realistic. Second, in The Association, my team was beat by the Wizards in the playoffs, swept to be exact, and I had a super team, and we were the #1 team and they were 8. Please make this game more realistic. Otherwise I’ll say it is a waste of money. The console versions are much better guys, I love the console versions.
It’s broken
by jjjjuujgidkxth on 2019/02/05 03:44

Please fix!!!

Second controller option even worse
by Tawd2k on 2019/02/04 04:43
Bring back the controls from last years game with just buttons to control your player in My career. The analog for defense and juking is extremely hard to use. Still disappointed in this game. New update STILL doesn't fix this.

Roster Update

Why dose a trash game cost money
by Crazyaidan1010 on 2019/02/03 00:29
I am trying to to the story for Michael Jordan but the dumb game makes everything I do a foul like I’m running up the court and it calls a foul on me and when I clearly get fouled nothing gets called and the game hits every shot I was going to win and they hit 2 full court shots on me if the game is going to be that bad make it free
Still Terrible.
by joelyshaw on 2019/02/02 23:05
PLAYING THE GAME ON IPAD 2018. DURING PLAY THE GAME MENU WILL RANDOMLY POP UP. THE CONTROL STICKS. THE GAME IS SLOW. BY FAR THE WORST 2K NBA GAME. FIX THE GAME! THE FIVE STAR RATERS MUST WORK FOR 2K.

Can you guys please please add more leg sleeves and arm sleeves. New nba uniforms please slam dunk contest and 3 point contest please.
This game is a scam
by >ItsSauce< on 2019/02/02 21:40
This game is a scam I buyed vc spend it on shoes and accessories and ovr I saved it all then, the next morning it’s not there I paid $20 such a scam I spend days trying to get more minutes and teammate chemistry it’s all gone
Embarrassing
by ToryJohns on 2019/02/02 21:32
For a company that considers themselves the best in this genre this game is an embarrassment. The touch screen controls are clunky; if you simulate you’re lucky if your first option scorer even scores 10; the player rendering is terrible; and they fixed nothing from last season.
Copy and Paste/ Dual Archetypes
by (YouTube)SupremeStephon on 2019/02/02 21:08
This game is just like last years and the year before that. 2k we WANT DUAL ARCHETYPES. I want to make a playmaking shot creator but I can’t . please have dual archetypes in the next update. But I love the game good job.
FIX THE RELEASE SHOT
by 2ks biggest fan on 2019/02/02 18:15
If u get an excellent shot it should go in every time I like everything but the fact that when u get a green release it got a 40 percent chance of going in and I’m getting tired of it I’m really about call apple and get my money back!!

Dunking is not as easy as it should be
by KingPinnSmitts on 2019/02/02 03:35
The only complaints I have are the issues with dunking. I have made several players, all y’all enough to dunk, all 85-96 overall. The problem is, they have never gotten one contact dunk since being in the league. All they do is lay-up in traffic or on fast breaks wide open, they do a dunk. Slasher, Playmaker, Glass Cleaner Point Guard, Small Forward, Center 6’10-7’1 And NO ONE WILL DUNK IN TRAFFIC...Even when I perfectly cut to the hoop with no one around...lay up. I have seen multiple videos of people getting the posterizer badge..but I believe they have hacked it. As I am an avid player and have skills and crumble everyone I play against...just really wished they would allow for contact dunks to be more accessible. Instead of so rare ...
I mean the game has a chance to be great but why do u miss green lights.

A few problems
by Crock0rock on 2019/02/01 23:27
This game is very fun, but I have 2 problems with this game. 1 I actually cannot make a green light which gets annoying also if they could add my team that would be great
Thank you

Could be greater
by Devil666Driver on 2019/02/01 05:19
I love the rosters for 2K19 and how players look a lot more real. What I don’t like are the control options. Please update the control settings to 2K18. How you can enlarge the buttons and you can slide your thumbs to sprint. This new control is too complicated. That’s why I’m playing 2K18 more cause of the controls
Not worth the money

Trash
by kindyu on 2019/01/30 14:24
I was downloading this game since 2016 hoping it would be better but nope never gets better it’s even worst this year worst of the worst If 2k20 is like this I am going to be mad this game is trash don’t wast your money on it and one time I was wide open for a dunk and I hold the shoot button it keeps driving and I went out of bounds
Fix this game
by fix this game pleaseeeeeee on 2019/01/30 01:04
The game needs an update. There’s no sleeves, headbands and my game crashes everytime I try to play blacktop.
So trash no content
by Dhruv_Acharya on 2019/01/30 00:56
I wouldn’t even pay a penny for this game there is no content it’s so boring the my career feels like playing 2k13 on the Xbox 360 where is the 0 star option my god
Not realistic player performance.
by Amara Darboh on 2019/01/29 23:31
Once I was on a fast break with an 82 and he missed the layup. Whenever the others shoot they make them, and my shots hardly ever go in the hoop.
It’s okay
by 68.3 on 2019/01/29 17:11
A can’t play quick game blacktop and season it kicks me out every time
GIVE US BETTER ACCESSORIES AND SHOE GRAPHICS
by Ej42899 on 2019/01/29 16:28
the accessories on here are super corny, can’t put the Allen Iverson sleeve on my player, can’t put a headband on my player, can’t put on compression pants. And don’t even get me started on the shoe graphics on my career, completely horrible, the foamposites look like y’all didn’t even try, the air Jordan 12s look horrible. Please add the ability to customize the controls for physical and Bluetooth controllers and PLEASE add the option to icon pass.
😐 not as great as it could be
by uupshaw on 2019/01/29 10:45
For starters the customization is trash we the hairstyles are hideous they could add more hair styles second the equipment is stupid why can’t we wear a headband or a under shirt etc. MOST IMPORTANT-> all badges should be able to be unlock not exclusive that’s just dumb I hope the developers actually READ THIS because I think customers deserve their money’s worth😐
Mediocre
by Lil.Sponge on 2019/01/29 04:55
This game is poorly made, totally illogical and out of date in almost every aspect. Firstly, in MyCareer, the minute distribution is way jacked off. As a 66 overall, you’re already get 10 minutes, When you get near 80, you get 41-48 minutes. It’s laughable how the coaches believe that I can play in crunch time when I’ve been playing the rest of the 46 minutes. And there’s no way to edit or basically control anything your team does in MC, considering 2k gets its heyday on this mode wouldn’t be good if we could give ourselves reasonable minutes? In Association Mode, the entire thing is a basically a lottery, Apparently no matter what i do on there. As long as I’m NOT controlling the Pacers, they’ll get the 8 seed in the East with from 37 to 45 wins and make the Finals and win it. Can’t use unlimited cap, nor edit players like I can on consoles. Overall, this is prolly not the best thing cash could buy, id get an older console edition game if you have a PS4/XBOX 1/PS3/XBOX 360
We should be able to have tights sleeves headbands and other accessories
by jyren.b on 2019/01/29 04:48

Stole money
by Chasemotto on 2019/01/28 12:39
I go on the device save and it took my my career play away and I was a 90 overall and I spent about $80 on the game very mad I want it back now!!!!!
I bought game nut it won’t download IPAD PRO 11”
by ORONA92 on 2019/01/28 08:37
I paid for the game and it downloads about halfway through until an error message pops up saying it can’t be downloaded at this time. I don’t have any issues downloading other games and apps or Netflix movies or YouTube videos so i know it’s not my internet. Fix this issue or give me a refund.
Not bad
by Lilrubdog on 2019/01/28 06:44
Nice graphics, mycareer is okay there should be a mygm and myleague instead of the association. Online is super fun graphics are good not accurate ratings like on the Xbox and ps4 Kyrie is a 87 and in the NBA 2K19 game on the Xbox or ps4 he is obviously not an 87 on that game.
Tried again...still bad
by former2kfan??? on 2019/01/28 01:10
I echo every negative comment made about this game. The graphics are great but that upgrade came at a significant costs to all the other aspects of the game. Every single one. I think you guys did this on the cheap and it is a bad product. I am deleting the app.
Weak game, weak support.
by Shadowbachsir on 2019/01/27 20:09
The pictures for most of the players are so out of date it hurts, the game hasn’t updated rosters or even remotely close to the actual console games ratings, and god forbid someone call you during a save, because your file might corrupt. I love mobile gaming and the game experience isn’t horrible but if you’re going to charge for a game it should be at least somewhat flushed of easy fixes or at least have more updates. So ridiculously bad
So bad
by Jarrett Maisey on 2019/01/27 19:24
Complete waste of money. The free 2k is a thousand times better
This game is trash
by lerniamthelaw on 2018/12/20 13:52
I was playing the game & if you don’t play the playoffs you get swept I skipped the first 4 games of the 1st round & If I don’t play I lose same thing for the second round. Then we lost & I waited for the next season for some reason the game everything then it takes away my starting position & my team chemistry it bumps me down to 10 minutes of playing time for game. There goes those 20 hours of school grinding. Then when you play against a team like the raptors your team can’t make a single shot that in this game you have to score every point then it makes inaccurate passes & you can’t pass to the right person & when I was going for a dunk & I was holding down the shoot button it didn’t do anything beside keep driving then when you pass to a teammate when they are open they won’t shoot it. When I shoot a 3 & it is green with A+ it should always go in nope when get a green A+ it misses you literally have a 50% chance that it will go in which can me frustrating when you spend so much time working on your release timing & if you make this shot you win the game you get a green A+ then you miss it & lose the. 2k20 better be fix next year or I am going to be mad
Character Design
by Giovanni23 on 2019/01/23 00:43
In love with the graphics, there amazing for a phone all that’s missing is the accuracy in the players looks that I think is a priority to fix in the next app update. Rookies like Mo Bamba, Robin Williams III, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Collin Sexton & Wendell Carter JR. don’t look like themselves. Make atleast the rookies look as sharp as Draymond Green because y’all have the potential to & it makes it more enjoyable to play the game when all the players or almost all of them look like themselves. Update the players as they are in real life (Hairstyles, Muscle Build, Play style). Fix the replay feature in 2K as well, in 2k17 they would show the Player of the Games highlights but not in this 2K! Other than that the game is Phenomenal! The gameplay is very realistic. *****Update the Alternative Jerseys to the ones actually used in the NBA designed by Nike, you still have the ones by Adidas****** GIVE KOBE BRYANT HIS ACTUAL LAKERS JERSEY IN BLACKTOP WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS don’t wait until 2K20. Love y’all 2K
Trash
by MTD816 on 2018/11/02 23:27
Every year since they’ve done 2K for the iPhone, I’ve downloaded & hoped it won’t be trash. Wrong again. In fact this year is the biggest trash of all time. The controller update made it WORST! Either these people think everybody as 3 fingers like E.T, or whoever is in charge of the controls thinks everybody has hands the same size as basketball players. On top of that, if you use the default controls, you can’t make it a different size (it stays at medium), you can’t customize the button placement (you literally have to have your hand on top of the phone to press a “button”, when you do eventually pass it to the right player (after 5 tries of passing yo everybody else because the game ignores what direction you try to pass), now the shoot/ jump button will glow blue acknowledging you’re pressing it, but your player just stands these. Oh & you have to play the WHOLE GAME in MyPlayer. What a joke. I really wish apple allowed you to get refunds when you get jerked around on games like this. This will be the last time 2K EVER gets a dime from me.
A real review, in light of fixed controls
by JH57846 on 2018/12/23 07:00
This is an updated review. THANK YOU for fixing the controls!!! Now that the game is playable, I’ve actually made the switch from 2k18 and have a better sense of the pros/cons of 2k19. (EDIT, Dec 2018: Kudos for the update adding even more controller customization.) Pros: Graphics, esp. jerseys, are a step up. Gameplay remains as good as 2k18; if ain’t broke, etc... Though I’m more of an Association guy, it’s good that things are being added, like Story Mode and Online Multiplayer. Cons: Menus were better in 2k18. This year’s menus are clunky. Roster has some gaps. (EDIT, Dec 2018: or rather HAD some gaps; edited out criticism here because the first update addressed it) No major new features or improvements to Association. Would’ve loved rotation timelines, some way of playcalling, options for expansion teams, etc. (EDIT, Dec 2018: Appears that a bug in the new updates has been that league leaders under Statistics are no longer accurate. It groups by teams, and even within teams it’s out of order. Can this be addressed in the next update?) Overall: It’s basically the same game as 2k18 + Story Mode and online. Those hoping for a fix to 2k18’s deficiencies will be disappointed, but it’s at least a functioning update for this season. Still an excellent game, as 2k18 was.
Mediocre
by Lil.Sponge on 2019/01/29 04:55
This game is poorly made, totally illogical and out of date in almost every aspect. Firstly, in MyCareer, the minute distribution is way jacked off. As a 66 overall, you’re already get 10 minutes, When you get near 80, you get 41-48 minutes. It’s laughable how the coaches believe that I can play in crunch time when I’ve been playing the rest of the 46 minutes. And there’s no way to edit or basically control anything your team does in MC, considering 2k gets its heyday on this mode wouldn’t be good if we could give ourselves reasonable minutes? In Association Mode, the entire thing is a basically a lottery, Apparently no matter what i do on there. As long as I’m NOT controlling the Pacers, they’ll get the 8 seed in the East with from 37 to 45 wins and make the Finals and win it. Can’t use unlimited cap, nor edit players like I can on consoles. Overall, this is prolly not the best thing cash could buy, id get an older console edition game if you have a PS4/XBOX 1/PS3/XBOX 360
Close to a 5 Star
by Cublove78 on 2018/12/12 03:36
Need a few fixes, could you please update the association league leaders there’s no chart it’s just every player bunched up together. Could you make where you can actually look up league leaders in categories? Love the graphics, gameplay and it’s actually competitive!! Haven’t made it to a draft in association so we’ll see about that. Fix the the league leaders I’ll give a 5. I’ve played 2k every year since it’s came out I’ve had the mobile versions as well this is the first mobile worth keeping last years was about a 3 Star this one is very close to being a 5. Keep in mind 2k you want people playing your game all the time so get these associations sinked over to the consoles make the association deep, get us online playing head to head on here and get them stats leaders right...lol!!!
Sorta Worth The Money
by RanWitDemA's on 2018/12/10 08:27
I truly enjoy playing this game and I love the addition of association mode but gameplay remains weak. I haven’t seen much change in the appearance in gameplay since 2k16 Mobile. There is this one glitch that annoys my sooo much and that is when the refs hold the ball for a super long time before passing the ball to you player to inbound the ball. That’s a waste of my time and the rosters need to be way updated. I think that that the face graphics are amazing with 2K19 and the animations are super interesting. The gameplay is more realistic but the app feels like the developers don’t spend enough time on it compared to the console game. I recommend this app but I have to say that the console game is way more fun and better developed. (The music gets waaaaay too annoying after awhile. Not the way with the console game)
2k18 updated 😑 Disappointed...
by DaWhiteMamba on 2018/11/30 19:38
This 2K edition, is pretty much a remake of last years. The only thing it really improved on, are the graphics, in just a few areas (the players, the home screen, the jerseys, etc.). The sound quality of the songs are TERRIBLE, the commentators say the same things as last year (they may have added a phrase or two, but no significant change), and this mycareer make me want to quit playing EVERY-TIME I start playing it. Can we not just play in the NBA, since that’s the whole point. Since there are no videos (and just words) there is less of an attachment to the whole storyline, I bought the game so I could actually PLAY the game, I didn’t ask to read a book called 2K19. The association is great, don’t understand the point of story mode (like what even), but overall I just like playing b-ball so that’s why I get the game, but if I’m being honest it isn’t that great, big disappointment...😔
Needs lots of improvement
by justin cashion on 2019/01/01 23:55
This game has lots of potential like it has on Xbox. If you play this game for literally and 2K cannot doubt me if you play for 30 minutes it will guaranteed take away 75 percent of your battery which is absolutely ridiculous. Also it takes up an INSANE amount of your phone for a game that is not worth out but has so much potential. The modes they have are pretty fun but slow and can get boring a lot of the time My last statement is they miss half of their barely contested layups. This is the NBA so they make about 90 percent of those. 2K needs to put more effort into the game if they want more money. I play NBA Live Mobile way, way more than this game because it’s most of the time fast and not glitchy and doesn’t take battery up super quick. This game I think is just meant for Consoles and I think a lot of people feel like their money went to the trash because this game is pretty bad.
The best basketball game there is No cap!!
by shakerbaker🧁🍰🎂 on 2019/01/06 20:38
I love this game a love the graphics and the gameplay but especially I love the online me and a couple of my friends be having tournaments on are Campus or at work and when I tell you it gets real it really does this games is unstoppable we play this game 24/7 nonstop but the main reason why I give this game a 4 i would love to see a My park like that workouts be awesome if you guys added that in the game but 2K19 I will understand if u guys don’t do it at least update the alternative jersey to the recent ones that would be nice and also please and like a tournament for the game cause ima let y’all know if I choose the lakers I dominating the whole game I’m telling y’all I’m to raw wen in comes to LEBRON,LONZO,and Kuzma y’all really made it better this time thanks 2K for all your hard work☄️🤯🤯🤯🤩🤩🤩
Absolutely a joke.
by BlainardSkinard on 2018/12/07 23:13
This game has SOOO much potential, but yet it falls short. Once again. Played an entire season with My Player only to get to the first round of playoffs, sweep the team, and then the game won’t schedule another game... well there goes 20+ hours of grinding. Game breaking, user frustrating, app deleting bug. Graphics are great.. when they are working! Players jerseys glitching inside their bodies, camera men holding white blocks of unfinished texture, camera sticking on players during timeouts and waiting 20-30 seconds until it finally starts the pass in animation. I worked past all of this. Including the joke of “drills” they let you try to earn stars. Yah right, I’d like someone to show me how you run a fast break drill when you have to use their camera angle, and you cant even see your player until the computer is scoring. Then the fact you can’t even connect your MyNBA2K19 account?? Or play others online?? Another missed opportunity people! Really thought that the 2K franchise would fix user reported issues and use the money they get every time we pay for this game to provide development and improvements.. seems they just want a quick and easy income source to fuel their other games on other platforms. Sorry, but this definitely turns me away from any further 2K titles.
Don’t install on your phone the graphics are horrible a tablet or iPad would work best
by Rate negative on 2018/11/01 05:33
My advice is to not install this on your phone the graphics are trash and if you turn them up it’s slow. My advice is too install this on a tablet ( I think iPads work best). The new features are pretty cool and the controls did take some time to get used too but the update just fixed that problem Overall I think it’s a good game it is like 2K19 on Xbox 360 that you can carry around. Also the animations are amazing for a mobile game I like how you can change overalls if you go to change roster. My career is kinda the same but the beginning is very unique like the (same storyline as console)
Never Made It Past the ‘MyPlayer’ Set-Up
by jmbro518 on 2018/11/16 04:05
I’m more than happy to come back and update/upgrade my review of this game, but as first impressions are quite impactful, I can only give it one star for the moment. I bought the game and upon opening the app, you are asked to set up your ‘MyPlayer’. I love the ‘MyPlayer’ aspect of the 2K games, it is one of the reasons I play the franchise. But when I attempted to edit the avatar, NONE OF THE PRESETS OR SLIDERS WORKED. When the game loads, I am just stuck with whatever the player looks like. I cannot edit anything. The sliders move around but the player doesn’t change. Being as this is my first impression of the game because it’s the first thing you do when you BUY the game and open it, I don’t feel the need to explore the game further. I worked my way through all of the generic iOS troubleshooting and nothing worked to resolve the issue. I guess all I can say is buyer beware. I feel ripped off.
Thanks for the controls update
by Sane Shane on 2018/11/01 21:31
Controls are much better now. A word of advice: “simplified” is not necessarily better from a gamer’s perspective. Controls would still be better if we had a separate ‘post-up’ button on O and a separate button to engage ‘intense-D’ on defense. In fact, I bet most would rather have additional buttons and more control of the action. And I’d hoped we’d eventually be able to have control over the plays being run..... maybe some sort of swiping system? Also, muscle memory kicks-in after you play the game a few hours. So switching the control layout up every year will always be met with complaints. What if Xbox & PS released new controllers with different button schemes every year that you had to use? Gamers would be irate. I hope less focus is paid in the future to new menus and more to gameplay improvements and updates players have been asking for a while now. Like current alternate jerseys and non-ugly equipment. Just make the equipment black and white or have the color schemes correspond to whatever team the player is on.
Worst product ever
by Acoehu on 2019/01/05 15:18
Alright let’s talk about few things with this game - MyCareer: you need to spend maybe 1-2 hours trying to get all rewards for the prelude. All missions are pretty much: 80% of your performance ain’t matter, then 20% of the last few minutes, the score will always be the same with the same minute left, and you need to win(Good luck winning the USA All-star team mission even with A+ teammate rating like I did) - Controller: totally ruined, can’t even choose when I want to sprint or not. The buttons are too big to move. The customization update ruined the original placements for the buttons, which now you pretty much have to guess where it used to be if you got used to the 2k19 touch controller scheme(which is impossible btw when there’s a box-out button as well) -Performance: never knew an Iphone XSMAX wasn’t enough to play this game on medium settings with high frame rate..
2K19
by Bubbacummins01 on 2019/02/16 07:59
I like the game just wish there was more to do, like have a character customization screen for clothes and and shoes, have more things to do in the my career more opportunities and chances at doing things maybe a little more like a console version, all in all it’s a good grind and the in app purchases we’re worth it. Also add white as a skin tone, and do a little more with the hair and tattoo customization. And work on the graphics too many times the shoes come out looking bad or a playlets shoulder would phase through their shirt. Add more shoe, shooting glove and leg sleeve customization or just one straight color. Also choose what socks to wear(Nike,adidas,under armor, Jordan) all in all it is a good game but could be better
DEVELOPERS!
by TZJinc on 2018/11/30 19:12
This is probably a top 3 game on the App Store in terms of playability and fun. The touch controls are what makes the gameplay feel so smooth. HOWEVER, there is one area that this game needs to improve on and that would set it over the top. The game needs more dialogue options for the announcers. The announcers also need to get the names of the players right. Blake Griffin will grab a rebound, and then the announcer will say LeBron James. It’s kind of funny but it does break the immersion of the game. When I am high playing this game it feels like a console experience. I am fully invested and focused, then the announcers say something crazy inaccurate and it reminds me that this is not a console game. PLEASE MAKE THE ANNOUNCERS SAY THE RIGHT NAMES AND ADD MORE LINES OF DIALOGUE! IF THIS WAS FIXED I WOULD SPEND MORE MONEY! $$$MICROTRANSACTIONS$$$ PS, The VC is perfectly balanced. You receive enough to not be garbage for too long. The new incentives for Teammate Rating is EXCELLENT. PLEASE KEEP THIS SAME VC FORMULA FOR FUTURE ENTRIES. The China Prologue really helps craft a solid player that actually feels like a young prodigy coming into the league.
Expected More...
by SageMaster22 on 2018/11/16 05:02
This app is horrible. Players don’t wear gear or accessories there are no replays and the free agent selection is garbage. And every time I open the game it crashes. Were they unconscious when they made this game!? And there is no Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Jamal Crawford or Isaiah Canaan. This game Is disappointing and it cost me 8 dollars for this GARBAGE. And btw I am an association person and every season my 94 rated Joel embiid averages 19.4 ppl when a 69 rated rookie like World B. Free averages 25.3 ppg, THAT DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE. And the storage for this app is overwhelming when I have it on it takes up at least 10% every 5 minutes so I have to plug it when I try to play it. And the controls are small as a molecule And whenever I hold the shoot button my player pump fakes. Once it was down to the wire and I tried to shoot it and it pumped faked and I ran out of time and I lost a game. WHAT EVEN IS THIS GAME. DO THEY EVEN PUT ANY EFFORT INTO THEIR GAME.
Obvious bugs but listen up.
by HEAT755 on 2018/12/13 04:48
Read all the reviews and get a pretty solid view of what the game is. However no one mentions the hernia inducing passing system. I’m on fire. Nailing threes. Then they are like “dang we better double team this guy”. Now remember my passing stats are JUST FINE. So I dribble down court and they double team me. Two silly fools. Then I do what any player should do. I passed. And by that I mean my player yeeted the ball at the backboard and turned it over. Being the point guard I was given two options. I can walk up and shoot the ball instantly. Or pass it (hopefully before the other guys gets there) and never touch the ball. Ended that game with 9 turnovers because the stupid game won’t let you decide where you pass. Ruining my stats and making the crowd boo me? Pish posh I won’t have it. Rather go back to playing pinball on my windows 98.
Only 3 more things and then your good
by Lundgren Lundor on 2019/01/20 23:12
Everything has been updated so far except for a few things. Can you fix the fact that we need to sit on the bench and not play full on 48 minutes? When we do, we don’t have any energy to barely play in the 4th courter. Also, the double teams in this game is by far the most annoying thing yet. I scored 10 points and they already want to double team me. Try to remove the double teaming in the game. We need more follow throughs, not jump shots but follow throughs. The ones you give us are extremely ugly and jus only giving us 14 of them is jus unfair with the 100 jump shots you gave us. Blacktop doesn’t wanna work can you please fix
PLEASE READ
by Scott0606 on 2018/10/30 13:43
When I first installed NBA 2K18 I was thrilled with the easy controls and exiting content and gameplay that was featured. I downloaded NBA 2K19 and it looks the same but I can tell that some improvements have been made. The controls is not one of them. Please fix the controls I can barley play and others are having the same issue, if you make it like how it was in 2K18 then this game would be the game of the year!!! Thank you, best regards Edit: the game caused my screen to become a weird darkish tint, please help, it happened twice and I can’t fix it! Plus please add more hairstyles like a man bun and pony tails and more intricate designs
Gets worse every year...
by Tee_b123 on 2019/01/12 03:48
How is it possible the game gets worse every iteration. You guys are honestly just porting the previous versions with slightly better graphic. YET, there are more bugs each iteration! You can’t play defense on the 2k16 controller, arms do not go up or defend side to side!! Once again shot timers are broken, I can get excellent wide open shot and miss frequently. I already expect that they will not do any update for a while, just like 2k17, and 2K18, there was like maybe 2 actual updates that fix some bugs but introduces new ones. Rosters don’t get updated ever. Some players still have default skins. Some of the stats needs to be updated. I don’t know why I keep expecting changes. This is my last 2K purchase until they switch the dev team.
Great Game but confused
by Dannmaster56 on 2018/12/11 05:28
Overall I love this game but they are a few things that don’t add up, for example; the idea of being able to “tell the player to shoot” isn’t clear enough I don’t know how to do that. Also different hairstyles, tattoos, shoes, etc are a must for 2k20 or even in an updated version of this. I also like the meet with GM from the previous 2k’s this time it’s unclear if I can switch teams it takes a while just ideas the game seems to be pretty much the same just updated and a new story line would love to see a better updated version of this game because I really like it 💯
Same unresolved issues
by Ridon23 on 2018/12/06 17:57
So, the new update?!? Yes, some players look more like themselves, but now, other players that looked like themselves are now again look like robotic version that just carry the players name and attributes but no where near look like themselves. And that has been an issue for as long as I can remember. Another issue that has not been addressed is that the announcers keep calling the wrong names of the players which is so annoying. Or they’re calling them by their teammates names. That has not been resolved since last years version. Can you please fix these things so the game can be more enjoyable. And please more updates!!! The game is great but with those issues it’s just unbearable. You update one thing and then something else goes back to the same thing that was supposed to be updated. I was waiting for this new update to start a season and now I’m even more disappointed. I know it is only $8, but I think you guys can do much better than a couple of updates a season... But thank you! Looking forward to the new update! Thank you.
It’s Improved But It Still Needs some Tweaks
by Kob3dropp3d81 on 2019/01/01 23:21
I love the new additions to the game but it needs some tweaks. I think if you ever add a new control system you should at least give the option to use the old control system because it has been hard for me to do easy things like score and contest shots or play dignified defense. I also think that you should make it easier to shoot online in quick game and blacktop That’s why shooters like Steph Curry and Ray Allen are useless online because there SHOOTERS and people only use teams with Lebron Giannis or Shaq. Make it as easy to shoot OFFLINE as it is ONLINE. I love the game and please don’t give up on the game devs
For a paid game serious improvements needed
by Kramer242 on 2018/11/08 20:00
First off..... What in God's name is wrong with being able to catch and shoot immediately when open.... Upon receiving a pass I literally have to stand there about two seconds till the shoot button will respond. There's no lag so I know it's not that, and by the time I can shoot, obviously I got someone on me. Also player control can really use some improvement. Game has potential to be excellent if certain aspects are fixed and tweaked. All in all it's ok, but I'd wait a little before spending money on it, if you're thinking about it. See if they make some fixes first.
Not HAPPY!
by CM827 on 2018/10/31 01:29
So I really didn’t wanna purchase this because of all the money I put into NBA2K18, but I decided to purchase it because of the new story mode and online capabilities. I am not happy at all though with the control layout and the buttons don’t react when I tap them. The controls are also too small. I wish I could have the 2K18 controls and then maybe this game would be worth the purchase. An update should be made to accommodate users demands! I’ve read numerous reviews complaining about the controls! Please address these issues! I feel like I just wasted 8$ so as for now I’m still playing 2K18. I won’t play this game until something changes with controls!!!! There should be an option for 2K18 controller!!! Please 2k, fix this!!!
Takes up too much space!
by 🇭🇷🇺🇸🇸🇮🇷🇸🇧🇦🇩🇪 on 2019/02/10 19:25
I love this app, but it takes up too much space! At least make it less spacious! I had to delete practically every single app or game on my 16GB iPad to get the update, and I still can't get it, so please be more generous and make NBA 2k20 with less space! Also, the graphics are horrible compared to the real game, so change that too! And give the MyCareer player more of a backstory! It makes it so unrealistic! and when I tried managing the rosters, and after saving it, it always goes back to the way it was! Other than that, great app!
Please Add And Fix A Few Things
by Leen Leen Doy on 2019/01/12 08:04
1) Please add an option to change our jersey numbers in MyCareer. I remember the first few NBA 2K mobile apps (2K15 and 2K16) had an option to change our jersey number and I'd be grateful if there would be a future update with this addition. 2) PLEASE fix the collars of the jerseys. The Knicks have an awful jersey design. They've got both a round and v-shape collar on their jersey. It urks me so much. This goes for the other team's jerseys as well because most of them have collars opposite of what they are in reality. These two updates and I'd say it's nearly perfect.
Worse than 2K18 - fix one thing, break multiple
by loosey16 on 2019/01/01 20:35
I’ve been paying $7 for the past three years hoping for a worthwhile upgrade over the previous year. Somehow, someway, the developers found a way to make this worse than 2K18. First, sounds cut in and out during gameplay. You’ll go stretches without any arena or crowd sounds. How did they manage to screw this up when the game is a carbon copy of ‘18. Second, although it’s the same exact engine and there doesn’t seem to be any graphical enhancements, it lags on an iPhone X. Third, physical controllers have button layouts backwards and the ‘intense D’ trigger doesn’t seem to work. Let’s not mention that although there is physical controller support, you can not use the D pad to call plays or make quick subs. The only thing that seems to be fixed this year (and barely fixed at that) are replays. This needs some serious work if they are going to continue to charge $8. From what I can gather, 2K has outsourced this port to their China team and I’m not surprised that they continue to fix one thing and break another.
Great games and graphics as always.
by BostonCeltics2k19Champs on 2018/12/19 01:53
Really like playing this game during my spare time. One of the things that pisses me off is that they release basically the same game every year. The only thing that is updated is the roster and graphics. In addition they sometimes get the names wrongs...they call Kyrie, Kevin Love or some other dude which is weird. I would love if they added a practice mode where you could just shoot around. Also I don’t think it would be that hard to add a 3 point contest considering how much work was already put into the game.
Pregame rituals not working
by Jimmie35 on 2018/12/19 18:36
This is a very good game I like it even though it kills battery went only playing two games is really good but there is a few problems I would like to be fixed can you bring back the NBA 2k18 Mobile control pad and the only ritual that works is the tip-off ritual. And is not updating my stairs I average 39.5 points a game and he still saying I average 25.2 but every time I go to practice is say I’m averaging 39.5 but every time I click a game he says 25.2 please fix that and that Is it so far but please fix these problems thank you
It’s a good game

Look I like this game a lost but their are a few things that have to be fixed #1- can you tell me why I miss green releases I mean on console if you get a green it’s automatic but what happened here. #2- there is a glitch where you are in the middle of a game on a dead ball you decide to close the app the when you come back later and join the “mc” game you were in and was up 36-9 and all of the sudden when you join back the score is 25-22! Like wait a minute I was blowing them out and now it’s a one possession game please fix. Other than that it’s a fun game and is still one of my favorites
My career (player’s statistics)
by jjmboyo7 on 2018/12/11 17:08
Can y’all help me figure this thing out. I’ve played all season in my career ( iOS device) I’ve been rookie of the months all year, but at the end of the season someone else was nominated THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR without even winning the rookie of the month once. And for some other reason I can’t see my team’s statistics nor can I see my player’s statistic, and I’m not trying to creat a new MY CAREER since I’ve spend a lot of money on the other player at my career.
Really fun after a month
by Nhep on 2019/01/07 19:12
Didn’t like it at first, then I actually took the time to learn how to play. 12 minute periods really help to level up your MyCareer player. Only gripe is I wish that it took full advantage of the new iPad pros. Black bars around the sides, and the 2K Mobile (which has heinous gameplay but better graphics) game kills this in the graphics department. But overall it’s actually great. Just requires some patience. Like most great things.
PLEASE READ 2K
by Dfghjkzxv on 2018/12/21 00:49
Could you please update the lineups with all of the trades lately and also please update the players this season who’s overall has been changed through this season. Because players that are playing great this year such a Derrick Rose, Tobias Harris, Montrezl Harrell, Zach Lavine, and Luka Doncic are bad in 2K19 on Mobile but they are playing well and their overall has been upped but your users don’t get to experience the actual player, instead we are stuck with the bad and old overalls of these players. PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
One problem
by aleipww729 on 2019/01/15 06:47
I played it and on my career it takes forever to finish a season so I do finish the first then I like to sim and see where my career goes why doesn’t it fill in stats it shows as if I didn’t play the whole season like pls fix this It’s simulation for a reason And Also in my rookie year I averaged 23.3 ppg 5rpg and 6apg and I didn’t win Rookie of the year Ayton did with 11ppg and 10rpg oh and btw I was a monster on Defense and ayton Defense stats were bad and Ontop of that I didn’t make any rookie teams Trae young averaged 5ppg and 7apg and bad defense and made all rookie second I didn’t
Plz fix the green light and roster and shot meter by head
by Thundercat 2014 on 2018/12/21 12:27
Look i love your game but Plz fix the roster Kyle forever is not in the Cavs George hill is not in the cavs and a whole bunch of other people also aren't fixed Plz Change the shot meter to next to head and when u hit green beans they have to go in and im sick and tired of missing green beans and the last thing is Plz make the graphics like 2k mobile you can see that they are blowing up
Ronnie fix ya game
by Richgoddxx on 2018/12/08 17:51
The game is great way better than last year but the intense button on the 2k16 controller does not work so could you fix it plz I don’t like the new controller because u have to hold the button at the bottom to play defense intense defense also can you fix the passing mechanics it’s a lot of wide open easy passes that go out of bounds or ends up as a turnover and could u add more jump shot options like the ones you use to edit people
DO NOT BUY ON IPHONE
by JTSpivey on 2018/11/07 16:41
This game is bad. It’s not that, it just needs improvements & updates, it’s just flat out bad. It’s lazy, there’s several spelling errors & weird verbiage in the nightmare of an attempt at The Prelude, the audio is laughable, the play by play is awkward & makes no sense, constantly referencing things & players not in the current game. They give you a nickname you can’t change, it will glitch in the first few games of your season & stop showing you stats & standings & is just not worth 7.99 or any amount. I play this game every year, I’ve played 2k since AI was on the cover, on multiple platforms, and this is the unquestioned laziest attempt by 2k.
Can’t stop playing it
by egl74 on 2018/10/30 12:16
I just love this game. I’m not sure what others mean by downgrade in comparison with 2K18, but what I surely can say is that this game is way better than the alternative ine can easily find on the Store. It gives all the modes I need, but what I would expect from 2K is adding some features regarding random selection of Quick Game teams as well as more real-life experience such as NBA fixtures currently underway.
Are you kidding me?!
by Nice perfection on 2018/11/09 08:34
I played the same game 3 times and it definitely saved... But for whatever reason it shows that I never played that game. I played the Bulls, First time —> I Won, with a Double Double, big achievement I think. Game didn’t save. Second Time —> I Dropped 76ptz (My player’ new record). Game didn’t save. Third Time —> I dropped a better career high of 100ptz/3 Rebounds/5 Steals/8 Assists/3 Blocks. Game didn’t save. Game of a lifetime and the Game didn’t save. I clicked on “Save and Quit”, waited for the Saving progress to finish, because I didn’t want anything to go wrong, since I had a really good game. Everything looked good, Save progress finished. I exited the app. Came back in, and it set me back as to if I had never played that 100pt game. I screen recorded the game from 88ptz-100ptz. So I know I had that game. Sadly, I’m deleting this “Waste of money” game. Definitely can’t top my 100ptz game, and I’m not trying to play the bulls 4 times when there’s a chance, it won’t save.
Improved!
by MrNextEpisode on 2018/10/31 23:31
Now that’s more like it, 2K. The larger touchscreen controls work much better. Also kudos for leaving the smaller ones as an option. I love this game and play it all the time. One nitpick: In Career mode, my player’s and my teammates’ individual stats don’t show on any of the pages - neither in the 2nd page of statistics in the “NBA” section nor in the “Career” section. They also don’t show in the extended pre-game intros. Other than those things, the game is outstanding.
Don’t fall for the bait and switch...
by Bigmilt16 on 2018/11/26 03:40
The graphics and gameplay basically have not changed in this game in the past 4 years, despite fans screaming for things like bug free commentary and updated myplayer customizations. Suddenly, a MyTeam version of this game (with hyper-predatory features) drops this week and it has amazing mobile graphics that rival a PS4. 2K is just trying to bait folks into the money trap of NBA 2K mobile (a beautiful mobile game that is, otherwise, a cash grab reminiscent of the very worst pay to win mobile games) while stiffing players of this game (who pay up front but have no incentive to pump $ into the game) with a glorified roster update?
This game is awesome, but ......
by Madden geek 101 on 2018/12/25 21:12
NBA 2K19 is one of the best game I have played so far in the 2K19 era. Just some things I wish you guys would add is replays. So when you hit the pause button, in the pause menu it will have instant replay. And another thing is the graphics. The graphics are good but not great. The graphics look like the PS3 version. NBA 2K mobile graphics are better than NBA 2K19. My last thing is can you guys make it so we can pick the uniforms like on PS4 and Xbox. Instead of connections in my career. In my career I tried friending players that had a reward of alternate jerseys and it did not work. All in all the game is awesome. Not a masterpiece but I hope you guys can see this review and see some things Your friend Victor
Most recent update ruined default controls
by Cici 44444 on 2018/12/21 19:38
Amazing game. I had issues with controls until they added the ability to change them for iPad. But the right stick dribbling control is incredible for a mobile game. Association mode, which is my favorite, is fun and incredibly easy to play. Overall great movie game. EDIT: With the latest update, the default controls are automatically set to large and the pause button juts out in the middle of the screen. Please fix.
Great game hate controller
by Game bees alsome$$$$$$$$$$ on 2018/10/31 18:49
Whole game is great except controller I hate the new controller, it would be nice if we could have the option to use the old one like in past games. UPDATE: Love how they put in the old controller and also fixed a few bugs. Definitely best game yet, anyone trashing this game is beyond stupid or has and iPhone 5 or something, they expect it to be a PS4 version on the iPhone get out of here
Ok game but needs work.
by Hayday6 on 2019/01/10 02:22
In most every game the computer manufactures “Runs” where a team score’s a series of points in succession. So if I’m up by ten the thunder scores 20 in a row, even if I play perfect defense or get a steal. It’s almost like it forces the game to be more competitive such as if I’m up by a lot the computer has to fix that. Also in my career u can not chose to start with any good teams except maybe the pistons and kings everyone else is pathetic.
Decent
by gonejohn on 2019/01/04 09:10
Game runs smoothly, and the features are fun such as association, and quick play. However the music is terrible quality, players textures are screwed (uniforms are sometimes not completely on player) and the announcers are SUPER repetitive. This game is fun to play at first but gets boring after a few days. If they update this game to have better player textures and switch up the announcers I’ll keep playing, but for now I have to delete this to save my storage.

Play now don’t work
by 2kgoooooood on 2019/02/17 16:43
Every time I am going to do play now right before I go into the game instead of a player and they’re stats it just says New York Knick’s and no stats then right after that it kicks me out of the game. But everything else works fine and the same thing happens with blacktop.

Can I play my music off my phone instead of the 2K soundtrack?
Please read!
by jakej1128 on 2019/02/17 03:56
Overall I love the game. However I’ve noticed I randomly don’t get any endorsements after year one and I have 6 million fans but no shoe deal. Is this a bug or is it just my device glitching out? I’d love to get a shoe deal and other endorsements. Other things I’d like to see is balance with coming in and out of the game in my career, since we get tired and can’t play the whole game, also make it so that if you skip some games your teammate chem. Doesn’t drop to 0 just because you skip 5 mid year games. In association make it so that trading is more realistic and picks are more valuable. Also In association make it so that you can actually change Jerseys, relocate etc. as well as making draft picks actually able to develop and not have it be where you get 5 years in and every teams best player is a 66 overall because of the draft players not being developed. Other than That worth it!
Good game but..
by City.Sorber on 2019/02/17 01:52
NBA 2K19 is great. The gameplay is clean. But the graphics could be better. Make it look like the Xbox one graphics. Also add in more jerseys instead of just three. And add all the different Nike jerseys available to the teams. Add the All Stars team as well. Also put a team creator were you can make your own team and upload logos and stuff like that
Bugs
by PulisicUSA on 2019/02/16 23:05
When I do a franchise, and then I start a game of a new franchise, it kicks me out of the game and doesn’t let’s me be the new franchise. I tried deleting the app and re downloading but nothing. They need to update it. Can anybody help me out on how to start a new franchise without kicking me out.
2K at its finest
by 2kfanatic on 2019/02/16 20:33
Great game, plays just like the console versions in almost all aspects minus the online... seriously needs a roster update, it’s been a bit
Horrible

Game is okay
by Gamer1325537764 on 2019/02/16 14:32
The game is okay it would be better if the graphics were updated a little bit and stuff won’t lag a lot. Also during association mode we need to have the ability to hire and fire staff members like they do on real 2K gaming systems! WE NEED THIS ABILITY IF YOU ARE READING!!!! THE GAME WOULD BE MORE INTERESTING!!!!!
2K19
by Bubbacummins01 on 2019/02/16 07:59
I like the game just wish there was more to do, like have a character customization screen for clothes and and shoes, have more things to do in the my career more opportunities and chances at doing things maybe a little more like a console version, all in all it’s a good grind and the in app purchases we’re worth it. Also add white as a skin tone, and do a little more with the hair and tattoo customization. And work on the graphics too many times the shoes come out looking bad or a playlets shoulder would phase through their shirt. Add more shoe, shooting glove and leg sleeve customization or just one straight color. Also choose what socks to wear(Nike,adidas,under armor, Jordan) all in all it is a good game but could be better
No good

Don’t get me wrong, nba2k is awesome, but the rosters are so outdated. It has been about 2 weeks since the Tobias Harris trade and the other trades at the deadline and 2K19 has still not updated. Come on 2K19!

by Red0430 on 2019/02/15 21:09
This game isn’t the best. I’ve played a lot of NBA 2K games, but this one is the most stupid game ever. The people disappear, the controls are HARD, so I can barely play. I can’t make a shot without it making NO sense! This game is like a ripoff to 2K, the graphics are TERRIBLE! No offense, 2K, but WHOEVER made this.. Apple, give me my money back!
Update you goddamn Rosters 2k
by @DaRealDeeFromTrish3ll on 2019/02/15 20:01

by dndmsls s on 2019/02/14 23:35
NBA2k19 needs to do a roster update ASAP and update the players faces to and make the game like the console where you can change the starting line up when your my player is a 90 overall and stuff like that But the Game need a roster update After the trade dead line in the real NBA...!!!!!!

More ideas for the game
by jfjdjdhds on 2019/02/13 00:08
Can we be able to make own on shoe. Can u also put some more accessories like handbands. Can u guys out in a shoot around with all the players on your team not just u by yourself that’s kinda boring. Can u guys also put in better commentary this one is crap and also other commentators thank u again
Trash
by Bradleyab89 on 2019/02/12 23:09
Game is laggy, controls are slow to respond, rosters aren’t accurate. Luke Kennard is literally not in this game. Should be free like it used to be.

This game Trash 🚮
Takes up too much space!
by 🇭🇷🇺🇸🇸🇮🇷🇸🇧🇦🇩🇪 on 2019/02/10 19:25
I love this app, but it takes up too much space! At least make it less spacious! I had to delete practically every single app or game on my 16GB iPad to get the update, and I still can't get it, so please be more generous and make NBA 2k20 with less space! Also, the graphics are horrible compared to the real game, so change that too! And give the MyCareer player more of a backstory! It makes it so unrealistic! and when I tried managing the rosters, and after saving it, it always goes back to the way it was! Other than that, great app!
What’s the point of a shot meter
by @Seb67 on 2019/02/10 13:27
How am I getting back to back green release shots and bricking. My my player has a 99 overall 3-point rating and is missing wide out green release shots. 2K19 fix your game. We paying 7.99 for this game and nba 2K mobile is better. What’s the point of one purchasing the game and two having a shot meter. This game is trash I’m really disappointed.

Worth Buying but .....The Audio System & The Replay Viewer?
by Kunn23 on 2019/02/08 05:32
It’s awesome to play such a game with amazing graphics with a phone and I totally appreciate it. One thing I want is “the replay”. Me and also cpus make highlights but the replays wont come even if we dunk and I dont know why. I hope you guys will make a replay viewer button at the next update so that everyone could watch the replays when they want. Also, sometimes the audio system lags and the commentators stops talking. Same thing for the crowd. It needs more improvements. But, I’m just happy that it’s worth buying and I can play with the right players. Keep up the nice work!
Update
by theoriginalmoschino on 2019/02/08 03:22

by John Michael Valverde on 2019/02/07 22:59
The only problem I have found so far with this game is the controller. The block/rebound button is so unresponsive that it makes mycareer unplayable for me because I’m an 85 overall playmaker and I still want to grab rebounds at 6’6 but I can’t because the buttons are so small. Plz fix that 2k. I had to take down a star because the rosters still aren’t updated come on 2k plz fix the rosters

by isaac behdadina on 2019/02/06 02:24
The game is good but the same exact as last year nba 2k18 the game needs console graphics like nba 2k18 console graphics and the game has a lot of bugs and nba 2k20 mobile needs to be similar as console and it needs a lot of updates

Great game
by PEYTON.Y on 2019/02/06 00:53
Mycareer mode is awesome. I can just sim through my 2 year contracts with each team until I get one from my favorite team. It’s also really cool how I’m coming off the bench for 6 mins a game and still scoring 16 points regularly. Only thing I don’t like is the long intro with the Chinese basketball league, G league, etc. But overall great game
HORRIBLE
by Renzoh0108 on 2019/02/05 22:12
How come 2K makes graphics like this? It does not look like the real game!! When your in MyCareer when your making your character it only shows on PRESET!! It is just like 2k16 2k17 and ‘18.
Terrible, unrealistic
by Thirty3Seven7 on 2019/02/05 20:20
Ok first off, in MyCAREER, your player can go off for 100 points every game, which is not a good look for this game. Many people like that, but it’s not even a bit realistic. Second, in The Association, my team was beat by the Wizards in the playoffs, swept to be exact, and I had a super team, and we were the #1 team and they were 8. Please make this game more realistic. Otherwise I’ll say it is a waste of money. The console versions are much better guys, I love the console versions.

When i want to play mycareer it always crashing while loading. FIX IT!!!
Second controller option even worse
by Tawd2k on 2019/02/04 04:43
Bring back the controls from last years game with just buttons to control your player in My career. The analog for defense and juking is extremely hard to use. Still disappointed in this game. New update STILL doesn't fix this.
🤦🏾‍♂️

Roster Update

2K sports can you please update the roster after the trade deadline. So we can have the updated Knicks roster. Thank you
Why dose a trash game cost money
by Crazyaidan1010 on 2019/02/03 00:29
I am trying to to the story for Michael Jordan but the dumb game makes everything I do a foul like I’m running up the court and it calls a foul on me and when I clearly get fouled nothing gets called and the game hits every shot I was going to win and they hit 2 full court shots on me if the game is going to be that bad make it free
Still Terrible.
by joelyshaw on 2019/02/02 23:05
PLAYING THE GAME ON IPAD 2018. DURING PLAY THE GAME MENU WILL RANDOMLY POP UP. THE CONTROL STICKS. THE GAME IS SLOW. BY FAR THE WORST 2K NBA GAME. FIX THE GAME! THE FIVE STAR RATERS MUST WORK FOR 2K.
More
by Jessea19 on 2019/02/02 21:48
Can you guys please please add more leg sleeves and arm sleeves. New nba uniforms please slam dunk contest and 3 point contest please.
This game is a scam
by >ItsSauce< on 2019/02/02 21:40
This game is a scam I buyed vc spend it on shoes and accessories and ovr I saved it all then, the next morning it’s not there I paid $20 such a scam I spend days trying to get more minutes and teammate chemistry it’s all gone
Embarrassing
by ToryJohns on 2019/02/02 21:32
For a company that considers themselves the best in this genre this game is an embarrassment. The touch screen controls are clunky; if you simulate you’re lucky if your first option scorer even scores 10; the player rendering is terrible; and they fixed nothing from last season.
Copy and Paste/ Dual Archetypes
by (YouTube)SupremeStephon on 2019/02/02 21:08
This game is just like last years and the year before that. 2k we WANT DUAL ARCHETYPES. I want to make a playmaking shot creator but I can’t . please have dual archetypes in the next update. But I love the game good job.
FIX THE RELEASE SHOT
by 2ks biggest fan on 2019/02/02 18:15
If u get an excellent shot it should go in every time I like everything but the fact that when u get a green release it got a 40 percent chance of going in and I’m getting tired of it I’m really about call apple and get my money back!!
App keeps crashing.
by Legendaryleek1213 on 2019/02/02 16:41
Try to use my career. Gets to the first loading screen and crashes. Worked just fine yesterday. I don’t understand
Dunking is not as easy as it should be
by KingPinnSmitts on 2019/02/02 03:35
The only complaints I have are the issues with dunking. I have made several players, all y’all enough to dunk, all 85-96 overall. The problem is, they have never gotten one contact dunk since being in the league. All they do is lay-up in traffic or on fast breaks wide open, they do a dunk. Slasher, Playmaker, Glass Cleaner Point Guard, Small Forward, Center 6’10-7’1 And NO ONE WILL DUNK IN TRAFFIC...Even when I perfectly cut to the hoop with no one around...lay up. I have seen multiple videos of people getting the posterizer badge..but I believe they have hacked it. As I am an avid player and have skills and crumble everyone I play against...just really wished they would allow for contact dunks to be more accessible. Instead of so rare ...
I mean the game has a chance to be great but why do u miss green lights.
by BJAYSUPREME on 2019/02/02 02:46
Ok
This game is trash
by Jilllyyyy on 2019/02/02 02:23
WARNING: This game is garbage I frickin hate it.
Straight up trash
by ddfddzx11114 on 2019/02/02 01:08
I just downloaded the game about five days ago and it worked perfectly now all it does is crash. Every time I try to play a game it crashes. Doesn’t even matter what game mode it is it just stops working
A few problems
by Crock0rock on 2019/02/01 23:27
This game is very fun, but I have 2 problems with this game. 1 I actually cannot make a green light which gets annoying also if they could add my team that would be great
Thank you
by Bferrer87 on 2019/02/01 19:56
More uniform options please 🙏🏽 WHERE IS THE UPDATE?
Jerseys
by gdvdjshz on 2019/02/01 18:43
Hello This is a really good game but their are some things y’all need to fix and that is more jerseys.I would like you guys to add the BAY jersey for the warriors.please make the jerseys as they are in real life.
nba 2k19
by Jayden💯 on 2019/02/01 16:26
the game is rlly fun to play all my stuff saves
Could be greater
by Devil666Driver on 2019/02/01 05:19
I love the rosters for 2K19 and how players look a lot more real. What I don’t like are the control options. Please update the control settings to 2K18. How you can enlarge the buttons and you can slide your thumbs to sprint. This new control is too complicated. That’s why I’m playing 2K18 more cause of the controls
Not worth the money
by HunterJMar on 2019/01/31 04:14
Just don’t waste your money, if you want an in depth reason as to why; just read the other reviews.
Trash
by kindyu on 2019/01/30 14:24
I was downloading this game since 2016 hoping it would be better but nope never gets better it’s even worst this year worst of the worst If 2k20 is like this I am going to be mad this game is trash don’t wast your money on it and one time I was wide open for a dunk and I hold the shoot button it keeps driving and I went out of bounds
Fix this game
by fix this game pleaseeeeeee on 2019/01/30 01:04
The game needs an update. There’s no sleeves, headbands and my game crashes everytime I try to play blacktop.
So trash no content
by Dhruv_Acharya on 2019/01/30 00:56
I wouldn’t even pay a penny for this game there is no content it’s so boring the my career feels like playing 2k13 on the Xbox 360 where is the 0 star option my god
Not realistic player performance.
by Amara Darboh on 2019/01/29 23:31
Once I was on a fast break with an 82 and he missed the layup. Whenever the others shoot they make them, and my shots hardly ever go in the hoop.
It’s okay
by 68.3 on 2019/01/29 17:11
A can’t play quick game blacktop and season it kicks me out every time
GIVE US BETTER ACCESSORIES AND SHOE GRAPHICS
by Ej42899 on 2019/01/29 16:28
the accessories on here are super corny, can’t put the Allen Iverson sleeve on my player, can’t put a headband on my player, can’t put on compression pants. And don’t even get me started on the shoe graphics on my career, completely horrible, the foamposites look like y’all didn’t even try, the air Jordan 12s look horrible. Please add the ability to customize the controls for physical and Bluetooth controllers and PLEASE add the option to icon pass.
😐 not as great as it could be
by uupshaw on 2019/01/29 10:45
For starters the customization is trash we the hairstyles are hideous they could add more hair styles second the equipment is stupid why can’t we wear a headband or a under shirt etc. MOST IMPORTANT-> all badges should be able to be unlock not exclusive that’s just dumb I hope the developers actually READ THIS because I think customers deserve their money’s worth😐
Mediocre
by Lil.Sponge on 2019/01/29 04:55
This game is poorly made, totally illogical and out of date in almost every aspect. Firstly, in MyCareer, the minute distribution is way jacked off. As a 66 overall, you’re already get 10 minutes, When you get near 80, you get 41-48 minutes. It’s laughable how the coaches believe that I can play in crunch time when I’ve been playing the rest of the 46 minutes. And there’s no way to edit or basically control anything your team does in MC, considering 2k gets its heyday on this mode wouldn’t be good if we could give ourselves reasonable minutes? In Association Mode, the entire thing is a basically a lottery, Apparently no matter what i do on there. As long as I’m NOT controlling the Pacers, they’ll get the 8 seed in the East with from 37 to 45 wins and make the Finals and win it. Can’t use unlimited cap, nor edit players like I can on consoles. Overall, this is prolly not the best thing cash could buy, id get an older console edition game if you have a PS4/XBOX 1/PS3/XBOX 360
We should be able to have tights sleeves headbands and other accessories
by jyren.b on 2019/01/29 04:48
Should be able to have more accessories
Stole money
by Chasemotto on 2019/01/28 12:39
I go on the device save and it took my my career play away and I was a 90 overall and I spent about $80 on the game very mad I want it back now!!!!!
I bought game nut it won’t download IPAD PRO 11”
by ORONA92 on 2019/01/28 08:37
I paid for the game and it downloads about halfway through until an error message pops up saying it can’t be downloaded at this time. I don’t have any issues downloading other games and apps or Netflix movies or YouTube videos so i know it’s not my internet. Fix this issue or give me a refund.
Not bad
by Lilrubdog on 2019/01/28 06:44
Nice graphics, mycareer is okay there should be a mygm and myleague instead of the association. Online is super fun graphics are good not accurate ratings like on the Xbox and ps4 Kyrie is a 87 and in the NBA 2K19 game on the Xbox or ps4 he is obviously not an 87 on that game.
Tried again...still bad
by former2kfan??? on 2019/01/28 01:10
I echo every negative comment made about this game. The graphics are great but that upgrade came at a significant costs to all the other aspects of the game. Every single one. I think you guys did this on the cheap and it is a bad product. I am deleting the app.
Weak game, weak support.
by Shadowbachsir on 2019/01/27 20:09
The pictures for most of the players are so out of date it hurts, the game hasn’t updated rosters or even remotely close to the actual console games ratings, and god forbid someone call you during a save, because your file might corrupt. I love mobile gaming and the game experience isn’t horrible but if you’re going to charge for a game it should be at least somewhat flushed of easy fixes or at least have more updates. So ridiculously bad
So bad
by Jarrett Maisey on 2019/01/27 19:24
Complete waste of money. The free 2k is a thousand times better
This game is trash
by lerniamthelaw on 2018/12/20 13:52
I was playing the game & if you don’t play the playoffs you get swept I skipped the first 4 games of the 1st round & If I don’t play I lose same thing for the second round. Then we lost & I waited for the next season for some reason the game everything then it takes away my starting position & my team chemistry it bumps me down to 10 minutes of playing time for game. There goes those 20 hours of school grinding. Then when you play against a team like the raptors your team can’t make a single shot that in this game you have to score every point then it makes inaccurate passes & you can’t pass to the right person & when I was going for a dunk & I was holding down the shoot button it didn’t do anything beside keep driving then when you pass to a teammate when they are open they won’t shoot it. When I shoot a 3 & it is green with A+ it should always go in nope when get a green A+ it misses you literally have a 50% chance that it will go in which can me frustrating when you spend so much time working on your release timing & if you make this shot you win the game you get a green A+ then you miss it & lose the. 2k20 better be fix next year or I am going to be mad
Character Design
by Giovanni23 on 2019/01/23 00:43
In love with the graphics, there amazing for a phone all that’s missing is the accuracy in the players looks that I think is a priority to fix in the next app update. Rookies like Mo Bamba, Robin Williams III, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Collin Sexton & Wendell Carter JR. don’t look like themselves. Make atleast the rookies look as sharp as Draymond Green because y’all have the potential to & it makes it more enjoyable to play the game when all the players or almost all of them look like themselves. Update the players as they are in real life (Hairstyles, Muscle Build, Play style). Fix the replay feature in 2K as well, in 2k17 they would show the Player of the Games highlights but not in this 2K! Other than that the game is Phenomenal! The gameplay is very realistic. *****Update the Alternative Jerseys to the ones actually used in the NBA designed by Nike, you still have the ones by Adidas****** GIVE KOBE BRYANT HIS ACTUAL LAKERS JERSEY IN BLACKTOP WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS don’t wait until 2K20. Love y’all 2K
Trash
by MTD816 on 2018/11/02 23:27
Every year since they’ve done 2K for the iPhone, I’ve downloaded & hoped it won’t be trash. Wrong again. In fact this year is the biggest trash of all time. The controller update made it WORST! Either these people think everybody as 3 fingers like E.T, or whoever is in charge of the controls thinks everybody has hands the same size as basketball players. On top of that, if you use the default controls, you can’t make it a different size (it stays at medium), you can’t customize the button placement (you literally have to have your hand on top of the phone to press a “button”, when you do eventually pass it to the right player (after 5 tries of passing yo everybody else because the game ignores what direction you try to pass), now the shoot/ jump button will glow blue acknowledging you’re pressing it, but your player just stands these. Oh & you have to play the WHOLE GAME in MyPlayer. What a joke. I really wish apple allowed you to get refunds when you get jerked around on games like this. This will be the last time 2K EVER gets a dime from me.
A real review, in light of fixed controls
by JH57846 on 2018/12/23 07:00
This is an updated review. THANK YOU for fixing the controls!!! Now that the game is playable, I’ve actually made the switch from 2k18 and have a better sense of the pros/cons of 2k19. (EDIT, Dec 2018: Kudos for the update adding even more controller customization.) Pros: Graphics, esp. jerseys, are a step up. Gameplay remains as good as 2k18; if ain’t broke, etc... Though I’m more of an Association guy, it’s good that things are being added, like Story Mode and Online Multiplayer. Cons: Menus were better in 2k18. This year’s menus are clunky. Roster has some gaps. (EDIT, Dec 2018: or rather HAD some gaps; edited out criticism here because the first update addressed it) No major new features or improvements to Association. Would’ve loved rotation timelines, some way of playcalling, options for expansion teams, etc. (EDIT, Dec 2018: Appears that a bug in the new updates has been that league leaders under Statistics are no longer accurate. It groups by teams, and even within teams it’s out of order. Can this be addressed in the next update?) Overall: It’s basically the same game as 2k18 + Story Mode and online. Those hoping for a fix to 2k18’s deficiencies will be disappointed, but it’s at least a functioning update for this season. Still an excellent game, as 2k18 was.

Close to a 5 Star
by Cublove78 on 2018/12/12 03:36
Need a few fixes, could you please update the association league leaders there’s no chart it’s just every player bunched up together. Could you make where you can actually look up league leaders in categories? Love the graphics, gameplay and it’s actually competitive!! Haven’t made it to a draft in association so we’ll see about that. Fix the the league leaders I’ll give a 5. I’ve played 2k every year since it’s came out I’ve had the mobile versions as well this is the first mobile worth keeping last years was about a 3 Star this one is very close to being a 5. Keep in mind 2k you want people playing your game all the time so get these associations sinked over to the consoles make the association deep, get us online playing head to head on here and get them stats leaders right...lol!!!
Sorta Worth The Money
by RanWitDemA's on 2018/12/10 08:27
I truly enjoy playing this game and I love the addition of association mode but gameplay remains weak. I haven’t seen much change in the appearance in gameplay since 2k16 Mobile. There is this one glitch that annoys my sooo much and that is when the refs hold the ball for a super long time before passing the ball to you player to inbound the ball. That’s a waste of my time and the rosters need to be way updated. I think that that the face graphics are amazing with 2K19 and the animations are super interesting. The gameplay is more realistic but the app feels like the developers don’t spend enough time on it compared to the console game. I recommend this app but I have to say that the console game is way more fun and better developed. (The music gets waaaaay too annoying after awhile. Not the way with the console game)
2k18 updated 😑 Disappointed...
by DaWhiteMamba on 2018/11/30 19:38
This 2K edition, is pretty much a remake of last years. The only thing it really improved on, are the graphics, in just a few areas (the players, the home screen, the jerseys, etc.). The sound quality of the songs are TERRIBLE, the commentators say the same things as last year (they may have added a phrase or two, but no significant change), and this mycareer make me want to quit playing EVERY-TIME I start playing it. Can we not just play in the NBA, since that’s the whole point. Since there are no videos (and just words) there is less of an attachment to the whole storyline, I bought the game so I could actually PLAY the game, I didn’t ask to read a book called 2K19. The association is great, don’t understand the point of story mode (like what even), but overall I just like playing b-ball so that’s why I get the game, but if I’m being honest it isn’t that great, big disappointment...😔
Needs lots of improvement
by justin cashion on 2019/01/01 23:55
This game has lots of potential like it has on Xbox. If you play this game for literally and 2K cannot doubt me if you play for 30 minutes it will guaranteed take away 75 percent of your battery which is absolutely ridiculous. Also it takes up an INSANE amount of your phone for a game that is not worth out but has so much potential. The modes they have are pretty fun but slow and can get boring a lot of the time My last statement is they miss half of their barely contested layups. This is the NBA so they make about 90 percent of those. 2K needs to put more effort into the game if they want more money. I play NBA Live Mobile way, way more than this game because it’s most of the time fast and not glitchy and doesn’t take battery up super quick. This game I think is just meant for Consoles and I think a lot of people feel like their money went to the trash because this game is pretty bad.
The best basketball game there is No cap!!
by shakerbaker🧁🍰🎂 on 2019/01/06 20:38
I love this game a love the graphics and the gameplay but especially I love the online me and a couple of my friends be having tournaments on are Campus or at work and when I tell you it gets real it really does this games is unstoppable we play this game 24/7 nonstop but the main reason why I give this game a 4 i would love to see a My park like that workouts be awesome if you guys added that in the game but 2K19 I will understand if u guys don’t do it at least update the alternative jersey to the recent ones that would be nice and also please and like a tournament for the game cause ima let y’all know if I choose the lakers I dominating the whole game I’m telling y’all I’m to raw wen in comes to LEBRON,LONZO,and Kuzma y’all really made it better this time thanks 2K for all your hard work☄️🤯🤯🤯🤩🤩🤩
Absolutely a joke.
by BlainardSkinard on 2018/12/07 23:13
This game has SOOO much potential, but yet it falls short. Once again. Played an entire season with My Player only to get to the first round of playoffs, sweep the team, and then the game won’t schedule another game... well there goes 20+ hours of grinding. Game breaking, user frustrating, app deleting bug. Graphics are great.. when they are working! Players jerseys glitching inside their bodies, camera men holding white blocks of unfinished texture, camera sticking on players during timeouts and waiting 20-30 seconds until it finally starts the pass in animation. I worked past all of this. Including the joke of “drills” they let you try to earn stars. Yah right, I’d like someone to show me how you run a fast break drill when you have to use their camera angle, and you cant even see your player until the computer is scoring. Then the fact you can’t even connect your MyNBA2K19 account?? Or play others online?? Another missed opportunity people! Really thought that the 2K franchise would fix user reported issues and use the money they get every time we pay for this game to provide development and improvements.. seems they just want a quick and easy income source to fuel their other games on other platforms. Sorry, but this definitely turns me away from any further 2K titles.
Don’t install on your phone the graphics are horrible a tablet or iPad would work best
by Rate negative on 2018/11/01 05:33
My advice is to not install this on your phone the graphics are trash and if you turn them up it’s slow. My advice is too install this on a tablet ( I think iPads work best). The new features are pretty cool and the controls did take some time to get used too but the update just fixed that problem Overall I think it’s a good game it is like 2K19 on Xbox 360 that you can carry around. Also the animations are amazing for a mobile game I like how you can change overalls if you go to change roster. My career is kinda the same but the beginning is very unique like the (same storyline as console)
Never Made It Past the ‘MyPlayer’ Set-Up
by jmbro518 on 2018/11/16 04:05
I’m more than happy to come back and update/upgrade my review of this game, but as first impressions are quite impactful, I can only give it one star for the moment. I bought the game and upon opening the app, you are asked to set up your ‘MyPlayer’. I love the ‘MyPlayer’ aspect of the 2K games, it is one of the reasons I play the franchise. But when I attempted to edit the avatar, NONE OF THE PRESETS OR SLIDERS WORKED. When the game loads, I am just stuck with whatever the player looks like. I cannot edit anything. The sliders move around but the player doesn’t change. Being as this is my first impression of the game because it’s the first thing you do when you BUY the game and open it, I don’t feel the need to explore the game further. I worked my way through all of the generic iOS troubleshooting and nothing worked to resolve the issue. I guess all I can say is buyer beware. I feel ripped off.
Thanks for the controls update
by Sane Shane on 2018/11/01 21:31
Controls are much better now. A word of advice: “simplified” is not necessarily better from a gamer’s perspective. Controls would still be better if we had a separate ‘post-up’ button on O and a separate button to engage ‘intense-D’ on defense. In fact, I bet most would rather have additional buttons and more control of the action. And I’d hoped we’d eventually be able to have control over the plays being run..... maybe some sort of swiping system? Also, muscle memory kicks-in after you play the game a few hours. So switching the control layout up every year will always be met with complaints. What if Xbox & PS released new controllers with different button schemes every year that you had to use? Gamers would be irate. I hope less focus is paid in the future to new menus and more to gameplay improvements and updates players have been asking for a while now. Like current alternate jerseys and non-ugly equipment. Just make the equipment black and white or have the color schemes correspond to whatever team the player is on.
Worst product ever
by Acoehu on 2019/01/05 15:18
Alright let’s talk about few things with this game - MyCareer: you need to spend maybe 1-2 hours trying to get all rewards for the prelude. All missions are pretty much: 80% of your performance ain’t matter, then 20% of the last few minutes, the score will always be the same with the same minute left, and you need to win(Good luck winning the USA All-star team mission even with A+ teammate rating like I did) - Controller: totally ruined, can’t even choose when I want to sprint or not. The buttons are too big to move. The customization update ruined the original placements for the buttons, which now you pretty much have to guess where it used to be if you got used to the 2k19 touch controller scheme(which is impossible btw when there’s a box-out button as well) -Performance: never knew an Iphone XSMAX wasn’t enough to play this game on medium settings with high frame rate..
2K19
by Bubbacummins01 on 2019/02/16 07:59
I like the game just wish there was more to do, like have a character customization screen for clothes and and shoes, have more things to do in the my career more opportunities and chances at doing things maybe a little more like a console version, all in all it’s a good grind and the in app purchases we’re worth it. Also add white as a skin tone, and do a little more with the hair and tattoo customization. And work on the graphics too many times the shoes come out looking bad or a playlets shoulder would phase through their shirt. Add more shoe, shooting glove and leg sleeve customization or just one straight color. Also choose what socks to wear(Nike,adidas,under armor, Jordan) all in all it is a good game but could be better
DEVELOPERS!
by TZJinc on 2018/11/30 19:12
This is probably a top 3 game on the App Store in terms of playability and fun. The touch controls are what makes the gameplay feel so smooth. HOWEVER, there is one area that this game needs to improve on and that would set it over the top. The game needs more dialogue options for the announcers. The announcers also need to get the names of the players right. Blake Griffin will grab a rebound, and then the announcer will say LeBron James. It’s kind of funny but it does break the immersion of the game. When I am high playing this game it feels like a console experience. I am fully invested and focused, then the announcers say something crazy inaccurate and it reminds me that this is not a console game. PLEASE MAKE THE ANNOUNCERS SAY THE RIGHT NAMES AND ADD MORE LINES OF DIALOGUE! IF THIS WAS FIXED I WOULD SPEND MORE MONEY! $$$MICROTRANSACTIONS$$$ PS, The VC is perfectly balanced. You receive enough to not be garbage for too long. The new incentives for Teammate Rating is EXCELLENT. PLEASE KEEP THIS SAME VC FORMULA FOR FUTURE ENTRIES. The China Prologue really helps craft a solid player that actually feels like a young prodigy coming into the league.
Expected More...
by SageMaster22 on 2018/11/16 05:02
This app is horrible. Players don’t wear gear or accessories there are no replays and the free agent selection is garbage. And every time I open the game it crashes. Were they unconscious when they made this game!? And there is no Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Jamal Crawford or Isaiah Canaan. This game Is disappointing and it cost me 8 dollars for this GARBAGE. And btw I am an association person and every season my 94 rated Joel embiid averages 19.4 ppl when a 69 rated rookie like World B. Free averages 25.3 ppg, THAT DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE. And the storage for this app is overwhelming when I have it on it takes up at least 10% every 5 minutes so I have to plug it when I try to play it. And the controls are small as a molecule And whenever I hold the shoot button my player pump fakes. Once it was down to the wire and I tried to shoot it and it pumped faked and I ran out of time and I lost a game. WHAT EVEN IS THIS GAME. DO THEY EVEN PUT ANY EFFORT INTO THEIR GAME.
Obvious bugs but listen up.

Read all the reviews and get a pretty solid view of what the game is. However no one mentions the hernia inducing passing system. I’m on fire. Nailing threes. Then they are like “dang we better double team this guy”. Now remember my passing stats are JUST FINE. So I dribble down court and they double team me. Two silly fools. Then I do what any player should do. I passed. And by that I mean my player yeeted the ball at the backboard and turned it over. Being the point guard I was given two options. I can walk up and shoot the ball instantly. Or pass it (hopefully before the other guys gets there) and never touch the ball. Ended that game with 9 turnovers because the stupid game won’t let you decide where you pass. Ruining my stats and making the crowd boo me? Pish posh I won’t have it. Rather go back to playing pinball on my windows 98.
Only 3 more things and then your good
by Lundgren Lundor on 2019/01/20 23:12
Everything has been updated so far except for a few things. Can you fix the fact that we need to sit on the bench and not play full on 48 minutes? When we do, we don’t have any energy to barely play in the 4th courter. Also, the double teams in this game is by far the most annoying thing yet. I scored 10 points and they already want to double team me. Try to remove the double teaming in the game. We need more follow throughs, not jump shots but follow throughs. The ones you give us are extremely ugly and jus only giving us 14 of them is jus unfair with the 100 jump shots you gave us. Blacktop doesn’t wanna work can you please fix

When I first installed NBA 2K18 I was thrilled with the easy controls and exiting content and gameplay that was featured. I downloaded NBA 2K19 and it looks the same but I can tell that some improvements have been made. The controls is not one of them. Please fix the controls I can barley play and others are having the same issue, if you make it like how it was in 2K18 then this game would be the game of the year!!! Thank you, best regards Edit: the game caused my screen to become a weird darkish tint, please help, it happened twice and I can’t fix it! Plus please add more hairstyles like a man bun and pony tails and more intricate designs
Gets worse every year...
by Tee_b123 on 2019/01/12 03:48
How is it possible the game gets worse every iteration. You guys are honestly just porting the previous versions with slightly better graphic. YET, there are more bugs each iteration! You can’t play defense on the 2k16 controller, arms do not go up or defend side to side!! Once again shot timers are broken, I can get excellent wide open shot and miss frequently. I already expect that they will not do any update for a while, just like 2k17, and 2K18, there was like maybe 2 actual updates that fix some bugs but introduces new ones. Rosters don’t get updated ever. Some players still have default skins. Some of the stats needs to be updated. I don’t know why I keep expecting changes. This is my last 2K purchase until they switch the dev team.
Great Game but confused
by Dannmaster56 on 2018/12/11 05:28
Overall I love this game but they are a few things that don’t add up, for example; the idea of being able to “tell the player to shoot” isn’t clear enough I don’t know how to do that. Also different hairstyles, tattoos, shoes, etc are a must for 2k20 or even in an updated version of this. I also like the meet with GM from the previous 2k’s this time it’s unclear if I can switch teams it takes a while just ideas the game seems to be pretty much the same just updated and a new story line would love to see a better updated version of this game because I really like it 💯
Same unresolved issues
by Ridon23 on 2018/12/06 17:57
So, the new update?!? Yes, some players look more like themselves, but now, other players that looked like themselves are now again look like robotic version that just carry the players name and attributes but no where near look like themselves. And that has been an issue for as long as I can remember. Another issue that has not been addressed is that the announcers keep calling the wrong names of the players which is so annoying. Or they’re calling them by their teammates names. That has not been resolved since last years version. Can you please fix these things so the game can be more enjoyable. And please more updates!!! The game is great but with those issues it’s just unbearable. You update one thing and then something else goes back to the same thing that was supposed to be updated. I was waiting for this new update to start a season and now I’m even more disappointed. I know it is only $8, but I think you guys can do much better than a couple of updates a season... But thank you! Looking forward to the new update! Thank you.
It’s Improved But It Still Needs some Tweaks
by Kob3dropp3d81 on 2019/01/01 23:21
I love the new additions to the game but it needs some tweaks. I think if you ever add a new control system you should at least give the option to use the old control system because it has been hard for me to do easy things like score and contest shots or play dignified defense. I also think that you should make it easier to shoot online in quick game and blacktop That’s why shooters like Steph Curry and Ray Allen are useless online because there SHOOTERS and people only use teams with Lebron Giannis or Shaq. Make it as easy to shoot OFFLINE as it is ONLINE. I love the game and please don’t give up on the game devs
For a paid game serious improvements needed
by Kramer242 on 2018/11/08 20:00
First off..... What in God's name is wrong with being able to catch and shoot immediately when open.... Upon receiving a pass I literally have to stand there about two seconds till the shoot button will respond. There's no lag so I know it's not that, and by the time I can shoot, obviously I got someone on me. Also player control can really use some improvement. Game has potential to be excellent if certain aspects are fixed and tweaked. All in all it's ok, but I'd wait a little before spending money on it, if you're thinking about it. See if they make some fixes first.
Not HAPPY!
by CM827 on 2018/10/31 01:29
So I really didn’t wanna purchase this because of all the money I put into NBA2K18, but I decided to purchase it because of the new story mode and online capabilities. I am not happy at all though with the control layout and the buttons don’t react when I tap them. The controls are also too small. I wish I could have the 2K18 controls and then maybe this game would be worth the purchase. An update should be made to accommodate users demands! I’ve read numerous reviews complaining about the controls! Please address these issues! I feel like I just wasted 8$ so as for now I’m still playing 2K18. I won’t play this game until something changes with controls!!!! There should be an option for 2K18 controller!!! Please 2k, fix this!!!
Takes up too much space!
by 🇭🇷🇺🇸🇸🇮🇷🇸🇧🇦🇩🇪 on 2019/02/10 19:25
I love this app, but it takes up too much space! At least make it less spacious! I had to delete practically every single app or game on my 16GB iPad to get the update, and I still can't get it, so please be more generous and make NBA 2k20 with less space! Also, the graphics are horrible compared to the real game, so change that too! And give the MyCareer player more of a backstory! It makes it so unrealistic! and when I tried managing the rosters, and after saving it, it always goes back to the way it was! Other than that, great app!
Please Add And Fix A Few Things
by Leen Leen Doy on 2019/01/12 08:04
1) Please add an option to change our jersey numbers in MyCareer. I remember the first few NBA 2K mobile apps (2K15 and 2K16) had an option to change our jersey number and I'd be grateful if there would be a future update with this addition. 2) PLEASE fix the collars of the jerseys. The Knicks have an awful jersey design. They've got both a round and v-shape collar on their jersey. It urks me so much. This goes for the other team's jerseys as well because most of them have collars opposite of what they are in reality. These two updates and I'd say it's nearly perfect.
Worse than 2K18 - fix one thing, break multiple
by loosey16 on 2019/01/01 20:35
I’ve been paying $7 for the past three years hoping for a worthwhile upgrade over the previous year. Somehow, someway, the developers found a way to make this worse than 2K18. First, sounds cut in and out during gameplay. You’ll go stretches without any arena or crowd sounds. How did they manage to screw this up when the game is a carbon copy of ‘18. Second, although it’s the same exact engine and there doesn’t seem to be any graphical enhancements, it lags on an iPhone X. Third, physical controllers have button layouts backwards and the ‘intense D’ trigger doesn’t seem to work. Let’s not mention that although there is physical controller support, you can not use the D pad to call plays or make quick subs. The only thing that seems to be fixed this year (and barely fixed at that) are replays. This needs some serious work if they are going to continue to charge $8. From what I can gather, 2K has outsourced this port to their China team and I’m not surprised that they continue to fix one thing and break another.
Great games and graphics as always.
by BostonCeltics2k19Champs on 2018/12/19 01:53
Really like playing this game during my spare time. One of the things that pisses me off is that they release basically the same game every year. The only thing that is updated is the roster and graphics. In addition they sometimes get the names wrongs...they call Kyrie, Kevin Love or some other dude which is weird. I would love if they added a practice mode where you could just shoot around. Also I don’t think it would be that hard to add a 3 point contest considering how much work was already put into the game.
Pregame rituals not working
by Jimmie35 on 2018/12/19 18:36
This is a very good game I like it even though it kills battery went only playing two games is really good but there is a few problems I would like to be fixed can you bring back the NBA 2k18 Mobile control pad and the only ritual that works is the tip-off ritual. And is not updating my stairs I average 39.5 points a game and he still saying I average 25.2 but every time I go to practice is say I’m averaging 39.5 but every time I click a game he says 25.2 please fix that and that Is it so far but please fix these problems thank you
It’s a good game
by Thunder2108 on 2018/11/16 07:21
Look I like this game a lost but their are a few things that have to be fixed #1- can you tell me why I miss green releases I mean on console if you get a green it’s automatic but what happened here. #2- there is a glitch where you are in the middle of a game on a dead ball you decide to close the app the when you come back later and join the “mc” game you were in and was up 36-9 and all of the sudden when you join back the score is 25-22! Like wait a minute I was blowing them out and now it’s a one possession game please fix. Other than that it’s a fun game and is still one of my favorites
My career (player’s statistics)
by jjmboyo7 on 2018/12/11 17:08
Can y’all help me figure this thing out. I’ve played all season in my career ( iOS device) I’ve been rookie of the months all year, but at the end of the season someone else was nominated THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR without even winning the rookie of the month once. And for some other reason I can’t see my team’s statistics nor can I see my player’s statistic, and I’m not trying to creat a new MY CAREER since I’ve spend a lot of money on the other player at my career.
Really fun after a month
by Nhep on 2019/01/07 19:12
Didn’t like it at first, then I actually took the time to learn how to play. 12 minute periods really help to level up your MyCareer player. Only gripe is I wish that it took full advantage of the new iPad pros. Black bars around the sides, and the 2K Mobile (which has heinous gameplay but better graphics) game kills this in the graphics department. But overall it’s actually great. Just requires some patience. Like most great things.
PLEASE READ 2K
by Dfghjkzxv on 2018/12/21 00:49
Could you please update the lineups with all of the trades lately and also please update the players this season who’s overall has been changed through this season. Because players that are playing great this year such a Derrick Rose, Tobias Harris, Montrezl Harrell, Zach Lavine, and Luka Doncic are bad in 2K19 on Mobile but they are playing well and their overall has been upped but your users don’t get to experience the actual player, instead we are stuck with the bad and old overalls of these players. PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
One problem
by aleipww729 on 2019/01/15 06:47
I played it and on my career it takes forever to finish a season so I do finish the first then I like to sim and see where my career goes why doesn’t it fill in stats it shows as if I didn’t play the whole season like pls fix this It’s simulation for a reason And Also in my rookie year I averaged 23.3 ppg 5rpg and 6apg and I didn’t win Rookie of the year Ayton did with 11ppg and 10rpg oh and btw I was a monster on Defense and ayton Defense stats were bad and Ontop of that I didn’t make any rookie teams Trae young averaged 5ppg and 7apg and bad defense and made all rookie second I didn’t
Plz fix the green light and roster and shot meter by head
by Thundercat 2014 on 2018/12/21 12:27

Ronnie fix ya game
by Richgoddxx on 2018/12/08 17:51
The game is great way better than last year but the intense button on the 2k16 controller does not work so could you fix it plz I don’t like the new controller because u have to hold the button at the bottom to play defense intense defense also can you fix the passing mechanics it’s a lot of wide open easy passes that go out of bounds or ends up as a turnover and could u add more jump shot options like the ones you use to edit people
DO NOT BUY ON IPHONE
by JTSpivey on 2018/11/07 16:41
This game is bad. It’s not that, it just needs improvements & updates, it’s just flat out bad. It’s lazy, there’s several spelling errors & weird verbiage in the nightmare of an attempt at The Prelude, the audio is laughable, the play by play is awkward & makes no sense, constantly referencing things & players not in the current game. They give you a nickname you can’t change, it will glitch in the first few games of your season & stop showing you stats & standings & is just not worth 7.99 or any amount. I play this game every year, I’ve played 2k since AI was on the cover, on multiple platforms, and this is the unquestioned laziest attempt by 2k.
Can’t stop playing it
by egl74 on 2018/10/30 12:16
I just love this game. I’m not sure what others mean by downgrade in comparison with 2K18, but what I surely can say is that this game is way better than the alternative ine can easily find on the Store. It gives all the modes I need, but what I would expect from 2K is adding some features regarding random selection of Quick Game teams as well as more real-life experience such as NBA fixtures currently underway.
Are you kidding me?!
by Nice perfection on 2018/11/09 08:34
I played the same game 3 times and it definitely saved... But for whatever reason it shows that I never played that game. I played the Bulls, First time —> I Won, with a Double Double, big achievement I think. Game didn’t save. Second Time —> I Dropped 76ptz (My player’ new record). Game didn’t save. Third Time —> I dropped a better career high of 100ptz/3 Rebounds/5 Steals/8 Assists/3 Blocks. Game didn’t save. Game of a lifetime and the Game didn’t save. I clicked on “Save and Quit”, waited for the Saving progress to finish, because I didn’t want anything to go wrong, since I had a really good game. Everything looked good, Save progress finished. I exited the app. Came back in, and it set me back as to if I had never played that 100pt game. I screen recorded the game from 88ptz-100ptz. So I know I had that game. Sadly, I’m deleting this “Waste of money” game. Definitely can’t top my 100ptz game, and I’m not trying to play the bulls 4 times when there’s a chance, it won’t save.
Improved!
by MrNextEpisode on 2018/10/31 23:31
Now that’s more like it, 2K. The larger touchscreen controls work much better. Also kudos for leaving the smaller ones as an option. I love this game and play it all the time. One nitpick: In Career mode, my player’s and my teammates’ individual stats don’t show on any of the pages - neither in the 2nd page of statistics in the “NBA” section nor in the “Career” section. They also don’t show in the extended pre-game intros. Other than those things, the game is outstanding.
Don’t fall for the bait and switch...
by Bigmilt16 on 2018/11/26 03:40
The graphics and gameplay basically have not changed in this game in the past 4 years, despite fans screaming for things like bug free commentary and updated myplayer customizations. Suddenly, a MyTeam version of this game (with hyper-predatory features) drops this week and it has amazing mobile graphics that rival a PS4. 2K is just trying to bait folks into the money trap of NBA 2K mobile (a beautiful mobile game that is, otherwise, a cash grab reminiscent of the very worst pay to win mobile games) while stiffing players of this game (who pay up front but have no incentive to pump $ into the game) with a glorified roster update?
This game is awesome, but ......
by Madden geek 101 on 2018/12/25 21:12
NBA 2K19 is one of the best game I have played so far in the 2K19 era. Just some things I wish you guys would add is replays. So when you hit the pause button, in the pause menu it will have instant replay. And another thing is the graphics. The graphics are good but not great. The graphics look like the PS3 version. NBA 2K mobile graphics are better than NBA 2K19. My last thing is can you guys make it so we can pick the uniforms like on PS4 and Xbox. Instead of connections in my career. In my career I tried friending players that had a reward of alternate jerseys and it did not work. All in all the game is awesome. Not a masterpiece but I hope you guys can see this review and see some things Your friend Victor
Most recent update ruined default controls
by Cici 44444 on 2018/12/21 19:38
Amazing game. I had issues with controls until they added the ability to change them for iPad. But the right stick dribbling control is incredible for a mobile game. Association mode, which is my favorite, is fun and incredibly easy to play. Overall great movie game. EDIT: With the latest update, the default controls are automatically set to large and the pause button juts out in the middle of the screen. Please fix.
Great game hate controller
by Game bees alsome$$$$$$$$$$ on 2018/10/31 18:49
Whole game is great except controller I hate the new controller, it would be nice if we could have the option to use the old one like in past games. UPDATE: Love how they put in the old controller and also fixed a few bugs. Definitely best game yet, anyone trashing this game is beyond stupid or has and iPhone 5 or something, they expect it to be a PS4 version on the iPhone get out of here
Ok game but needs work.
by Hayday6 on 2019/01/10 02:22
In most every game the computer manufactures “Runs” where a team score’s a series of points in succession. So if I’m up by ten the thunder scores 20 in a row, even if I play perfect defense or get a steal. It’s almost like it forces the game to be more competitive such as if I’m up by a lot the computer has to fix that. Also in my career u can not chose to start with any good teams except maybe the pistons and kings everyone else is pathetic.
Decent
by gonejohn on 2019/01/04 09:10
Game runs smoothly, and the features are fun such as association, and quick play. However the music is terrible quality, players textures are screwed (uniforms are sometimes not completely on player) and the announcers are SUPER repetitive. This game is fun to play at first but gets boring after a few days. If they update this game to have better player textures and switch up the announcers I’ll keep playing, but for now I have to delete this to save my storage.
