Like I said in last year's inspection, it is apparent the MyTeam's central aim is to extract as much cash as you're willing to give up so as to avoid needing to grind out mundane challenges to advancement, and it does not seem anything has changed in that department.

    There does appear to be an emphasis on personalization for MyTeam this season: now you can choose different ability paths for your development cards, like focusing on athleticism or playmaking, which should help direct players to better fit under my individual playing style.Over the weekend I'll be diving deeper into game modes, including the Cheap 2K MT new single-player story campaign, the re-designed Neighborhood, WNBA quickplay, and online play before wrapping up this review before the end of next week.
