A lot have shown resentment about the absence of a tutorial mode which they feel is a prerequisite to any game that is shared amongst a large number of people from all over the world.

Jeff Landa rated the game 9 points out of 10 for its excellent presentation in the Electronic Gaming Monthly. He stated: “Games like NBA 2K16 will tend to overreach in how it chooses to occupy your time outside of the virtual arena. This is where most players will find the fault with 2K16, as not every mode external to game time is as fleshed out or competent as the main course. Not every returning 2K player will welcome the minor adjustments to the control scheme. Some online hiccups will frustrate others, and the addition of a MyCareer that doesn’t always feel like yours will split many down the middle. Still, NBA 2K16 remains a refined technical masterpiece that rewards rookies and veterans alike with a showcase that belongs in the basketball hall-of-fame.”
