The game has overused, repetitive animations,and lifeless movement from crowd NPCs during matches. Overall there's a general emptiness in the environments.

In MotoGP 17, you'll race at full speed to push ahead of the pack of other motorcycles, using the game's tight controls to your advantage to make narrow turns before accelerating again.

You'll get to feel the weight of the motorcycle in your hands through the controller. The vibrations mimic the engine and your wheels grinding against the asphalt of the tracks, making you feel like your hands are right on the handles of your motorcycle. The smooth, responsive controls help to make sure that every race is all about your skills as the player, so you won't have to worry about laggy button inputs when going for difficult turns. No music plays during races, but listening to the buzzing of your motorcycle's engine is addicting and doesn't get old. See More
During qualifier rounds where there should be a reasonable amount of difficulty, the AI is deceptively easy.

For new players, you're able to adjust settings in the menu to give you an easier time controlling your motorcycle. You can set colored path lines along the track that you can follow if you need some help with getting ready for turns ahead of time. There are also options to manually lower the AI difficulty to get you used to the game's learning curve. As you become more skilled at the game, you can gradually wean yourself off of these tools. They're great for anyone who wants to reach those expert levels of play, but might be discouraged by all the new mechanics that come with the racing game genre. See More
For anyone looking for customizable difficulties in a racing game, MotoGP has plenty of settings that you can fine-tune to match your skill level.

Practically everything in NBA 2K18's career mode needs to be unlocked with VC (virtual currency). From customization elements like haircuts, to gameplay oriented aspects such as stat upgrades for your custom basketball player. It takes really long to gather enough VC to buy anything, and after a few purchases it starts feeling incredibly tedious. You might even be tempted to buy VC with real money, which could be the main reason why the developers went with this game design choice. See More
When two teams are having a match on an NBA court, that's when NBA 2K18 looks its best. The lighting and reflections are excellent, the player models are very detailed, and the animations when players move around are extremely fluid. It's very easy to forget you're playing a video game and not watching a live television broadcast. See More
While the gameplay on the court looks and plays amazing, NBA 2K18 is very inconsistent in across the board. This includes poor facial expressions and lifeless eyes on some character models, meaningless and illogical story elements in the MyGM mode, very basic and empty outdoor locations in MyNeighborhood, and even an AI that sometimes forgets what its doing during a game. All of the issues add up and take away from the realism NBA 2K18 is striving for. See More
