The NBA playoffs are in full swing – not that anyone cares any more now that my beloved San Antonio Spurs have been eliminated – and NBA 2K15 ($7.99) is on sale in connection with the second round heating up. The game will be on sale for $2.99 through May 14th, so if you’ve been eyeing this one, pick it up before the Conference Finals start and you get that basketball game craving then.
This is the only NBA simulation on iOS – you can pick up NBA Jam ($4.99), sure, but that’s got over-the-top action with way-too-large heads. If you prefer your basketball more true to life, and with normal-sized craniums, NBA 2K15 is your best choice, though it’s worth reading our review to make an informed decision beforehand. Some updates occurred since the initial review, claiming to address some of the issues initially brought up, including reduced power consumption and some added features. It’s not perfect, but hey, it’s better than nothing.
