NBA 2K23 Steam reviews slam the game on PC as gamers express disappointment that the PC version of the game isn’t a port of the current-gen version, but rather last-gen versions of the sports game.

The previous-gen port of NBA 2K23 means some major modes and features are missing, along with some more minor tweaks that the power of current consoles is able to showcase.

“The very fact that PC gamers aren’t on the side of the next generation of games is honestly completely disrespectful. PC gamers have been on the « next gen » console for years and years, but with each release, console gamers get more than PC users. It’s literally a spit in the face,” said a review on Steam.

« Playing the game at frame rates above 60 results in buggy MyCareer matches where the next spawn simulation doesn’t work, » said another, « and you’re forced to watch the game play out in literal slow motion. » Slow motion continues even when you’re in-game. »
