I wish I was a baller
Our revised review for NBA 2K18 has recently gone live, but 2K Games isn't done patching its premier basketball title just yet. The company has just issued the patch notes for update number 4 - live now for PS4 and coming to Xbox One, Switch and PC "soon" - and there's a lot of reading involved. You can view the full patch...
Note: We originally posted our NBA 2K18 review last month but the game was essentially broken, with a number of serious game-affecting bugs. It was so severe that we were unable to give the game a score, because we considered it incomplete. While we really enjoyed the game when it worked properly, our advice at the time was clear:...

Multiple users have reported the game corrupting and losing save data, which is a particular blow if progress is being made in the My Career mode - some of...
Early impressions suggest it's a 'little last-gen'
NBA 2K18 is one of a few high profile sports titles coming to the Switch this year - the Wii U also had some early support that only lasted one round of games, but hopefully the Switch will have greater longevity. With its release closer some impressions are emerging, and our network colleagues at...
Switch is tipping off alongside PS4 and Xbox One
It'll be interesting to see how NBA 2K18 will fare on the Nintendo Switch; on the one hand it's easy to be nervous of a 'last-gen' port in light of the fact this game is also coming to Xbox 360 and PS3, but at the same time Nintendo's system is included in key editions and promotions alongside PS4 and...
