Despite the successful commercial success of the launch, NBA 2K20 continues to be in the eye of the storm due to invasive microtransactions and extremely negative reviews received from the public and critics.
In particular, on Steam the game has an ” Extremely negative ” rating with a total of 1890 reviews, 85% of which are negative and only 15% with positive reviews. This makes NBA 2K20 the second worst game in Steam according to user reviews, only making FlatOut 3 Chaos worse, which can count on 14% of positive reviews.
The negative reviews of NBA 2K20 show no signs of abating and buyers complain about a long series of problems, including excessive microtransactions, very slow uploads, technical problems, lack of online moderation with cheaters to spoil the gaming experience and in general gameplay extremely similar to that of NBA 2K19.
Despite this, the game debuted at the top of the UK chart in the week of launch and analysts is expecting good numbers also in North America, especially since the end of October with the resumption of the NBA season.
