NBA 2K18 Legend Edition Gold was released in September 2017 for Nintendo Switch. It adds a fun twist to the other two versions of the 2K18 with impressive new gameplay options and access to loads of Shaquille O’Neal merchandise.
The game has terrific graphics. It features highly detailed characters that look exactly like their real-life counterparts. The designers also focused a lot on the background to make it look like an actual basketball game with everything from brightly lit stadiums to active crowds. A unique feature of the game’s graphics design is the Motion System. It is a program that delivers seamless animation for an incredible gaming experience.
This edition of the game has a lot in common with the standard and legend edition versions as far as gameplay is concerned. It features the same popular modes including My Team, All-Time Teams, My Career and Run the Neighborhood.
The Gold version improves on these basic modes for a more fulfilling experience. For example, the My Team mode includes 40 MyTEAM packs which are 20 more than what you would get with Legend Edition. The team packages are delivered one every week and allow you to expand your fantasy league team. It also offers you an impressive total of 250,000 virtual currency points for in-game purchases.
Another significant improvement is in the high number of collectibles throughout the series. The tokens include unique Shaquille O’Neal tokens including Shaq Attack Shoes, his rookie jersey and championship ring.
NMBA 2K18 Legend Edition Gold supports multiple players. You can play either in the co-op mode or as rivals. It allows up to 10 players at a time.
This version has a lot to offer as far as control options are concerned. It allows you to connect up to 4 Nintendo Switch devices at a time for simultaneous playing. The gadget makes playing not only fun but also incredibly efficient, especially due to the increased shot accuracy. You also get to control awesome maneuvers like blocking, dribbling and dunking. These come in particularly handy during team gameplay options, whether it’s against the computer or your friends.
Replay Value: 5.0
This game has very high replay value. One reason for this is the high number of collectible items. Some are available for free and unlocked when you achieve certain game milestones. Others are only available for sale, in which case you use your virtual currency points. Another cause of the high replayability is the availability of multiple player options. Finally, the variable outcome in each game played will also make you want to try again and again.
NBA 2K18 Legend Edition Gold is without a doubt excellent. It has impressive 3D graphics that make it look more like a real-life match than an animated video game. The numerous new customization options and character skins also make it stand out from the other versions of NBA 2K18 including Standard and Legend. Finally, with all the engaging control options and the high replayability, Legend Edition Gold will give you value for your money.
This is a game worth investing in if you are a huge fan of the NBA 2K series and the legendary Shaquille O’Neal.
