The city of 2K22 is bigger NBA 2K22 MT than ever before... it's bigger than ever... and that's not necessarily a great thing. It's like two teams are trying to craft an MMO based on basketball. Everyday, there are quests scattered throughout the city, you're constantly asked to travel from one spot to the next in order to hold the purpose of a meeting.
But it doesn't hinder the main strength of 2K22's on-court action. I'm not sure I want to spend 45 seconds swaying from my apartment to a shoe store just to upgrade my appearance. It's better to do it through one menu by a clicks so I can go back to my basketball.
Furthermore, the new City eliminates one of 2K21's greatest upgrades - the reduction of load time. Even on PS5, you're going to be waiting each when you're looking to leave your apartment or leave the practice area. The City is just an unwieldy experience, and proof that larger doesn't necessarily mean better.
Drastically, in my opinion. It's clear NBA2king that the defensive aspect on this court is just the best it's ever been for the past few years. It's easier to glide around the court , and avoid your task this year. It's pleasing to see less impressive contact dunks this year. It was exhausting to watch 2k21.
